(New York, NY) Indie singer/songwriter Sam Pinkerton releases new EP, A Story in Parts, which is "in short, a gem."

(New York, NY) Psych-tinged Roots-rock band The Highway release the second single, "Circles," from their forthcoming sophomore album, Enter to Exit, due out April 14, 2015.

Psych-Pop Artist Sky White Tiger Announces
Release of Child Of Fire Ep

(New York, NY) Brooklyn-based psych-pop artist, Sky White Tiger, announces the release of EP, Child Of Fire, the follow up to his debut album, Electra, released in 2013.

Americana Noir Singer-Songwriter Ryan Hobler
Releases New Album, The Elusive Yes

(New York, NY) New York Americana Noir singer-songwriter Ryan Hobler releases new album, The Elusive Yes, which came out January 20th. Produced by Andy Baldwin (Bjork, Saint Lucia, Wakey! Wakey!), the album has been released one single at a time over the course of 2014, resulting in features on taste-maker sites including American Songwriter, Acoustic Guitar Magazine, and Daytrotter.

Having played in and around his native New York for nearly two decades, Hobler combines influences from such folk-rock heroes as Paul Simon, Elliot Smith, and Nick Drake into a refined sound set apart by its surprising arrangements, "warm and rich" (Songwriting Magazine) vocal harmonies, and transporting lyrics.

In the early 90's I was part of a Melbourne garage rock and roll band called the Stiff Kittens and we were like so many others in the inner city then, writing songs and rehearsing feverishly day and night.


Our first recording "As You Walk" resulted in a record deal with London label Psychic Records and by 1995 we had four EPs released in the UK including the Tony Cohen produced "Fat Boy" which became Melody Makers single of the week. The label were keen to consolidate growing interest following a previous promotional tour of the UK and the USA, so it was with great anticipation and organization that the band departed from Melbourne on a scorching summer's afternoon bound for England.
