Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter/producer/instrumentalist Josh Jacobson’s debut EP “First Light” is coming out in September. Check out the single “Tethered” from the EP here:
“Tethered” showcases Jacobson’s soulful vocals and dreamy tones developed by bells, trumpet, violin, and synths. The EP acts as a gateway into the inner workings of Josh during an emotionally impactful time in his life–relating to his fans in an organic way without having to reveal details beyond the emotion of each song.
“’Tethered’ is at its core a song about coming to terms with the fact that even the most meaningful connections can be temporary… but on a deeper level it’s about the whole concept of learning to live in a state of constant flux,” Josh said.
Josh has toured at SXSW and headlined for big-name festivals such as Miami Music Week and a Northside Festival showcase at Knitting Factory Brooklyn. Throughout his touring, he has proven to be a sensation on stage that goes beyond what you hear on record. Josh will be playing a few select shows in October. Check out the dates and venues below:
Inglewood-native neo-psychedelia five-piece band Inner Wave have released their sophomore album “Underwater Pipe Dreams” on August 25. Check out the single “Eclipse” here:
The group has spent three years putting together the 18-track album that combines trance and psychedelic influences together to create something new and alluring. The single “Eclipse” is a pop sounding, upbeat number with delicate vocals and summery guitar playing that has a classic feel but modernized with tightly-produced drums.
Another single from the album is “Buffalo,” a synthesized journey through star-seeing landscapes of rainbow colors and slow-swaying beats. The band’s unique sound has attracted many new listeners, leading to their album release show at the Constellation Room in Santa Ana to be sold out.
Inner Wave has steadily grown their fan base, touring with indie rockers Hot Flash Heat Wave, playing sold out shows and garnering over 100,000 plus monthly plays on Spotify. Fans can’t get enough of Inner Wave’s synth-rock and Latin style Hip-Hop sounds.
“‘Underwater Pipe Dreams’ was a name that initially came up as a joke, but the more I saw those words together the more I liked it,” said Songwriter Pablo Sotelo. “Underwater is a nod to Lil Ugly Mane’s ‘Underwater Tank’ song that was released in 2014. Pipe dream is a phrase that means an unattainable or fanciful hope or scheme. A fantasy something that will most likely never happen. That is how I felt about a lot of things during the making of this album. Whether it was a relationship I was in that was on the verge of ending, my future career in music and the uncertainty of it, the outcome of all these plans I wanted to see through (including finishing the album) felt like a long-shot.”
The Mynabirds have released a new album titled “Be Here Now” released on August 25. Check out the video for one of its tracks, “Cocoon,” here:
“Be Here Now” is a collection of nine songs written and recorded in January 2017 over the course of two weeks following the Inauguration and the Women’s March. Singer Laura Burhenn worked with producer Patrick Damphier in his Nashville studio to create an album that documented the controversial news and reaction to everything that was transpiring. The song “Cocoon” is about connecting with people and also wanting to seclude oneself from all the hate and political news happening every day. Despite the harsh realities we live, Burhenn feels optimist about the music community.
“It’s a funny time right now where I feel like the music community feels stronger and safer than ever,” Burhenn said. “I feel closer to everyone, and I think we have each other’s backs more than we did this time last year. That seems really hopeful to me.”

Boston-based indie band The Max Tribe have released their debut album “Retrofit” on August 18. Listen to their single “Yellow Pages” here:
The album “Retrofit” takes its name from taking something old and revitalizing it with the addition of contemporary parts. The band does this with their ability to take classic rock influences to create new psych-Blues and Soul indie rock similar in sound to The Black Keys or Morning Jacket. The album was recorded over the course of 15 months at 1867 Studios in Boston, a massive building that once served as a Masonic Temple but now houses the collection of vintage recording equipment.

“These songs transpired through strife, love, heartbreak, and mystery, conditions we all relate to,” The Max Tribe said. “The sound of the record cultivated from old techniques with a retrofit approach. We sought out to take vintage sounds and modernize them. The theme or concept of the record is revealed most in the production. We recorded most of the album in an old Masonic Temple built in 1867. This is where the album ultimately got its color and conviction.”

The band was born in 2013 when vocalist and Nashville-native Austin Max united with drummer Conner Kessler at music school in Boston. For more than a year they developed a psych sound playing around New England. Together they linked up with keyboard player Noah Lubert and bass player Rafael Minerbo in 2016, completing the group’s signature psych sound.
