TRACKS OF THE WEEK – 2/28/19 Edition

February 28. 2019 | By Wayne Jessup

Kicking off this week’s edition of Tracks of the Week, it’s the return of Laura Stevenson! Her new LP The Big Freeze is out March 29th on Don Giovanni. Catch her live at Bottom Of The Hill (SF) on May 17th and/or at the Bootleg Theater (LA) May 18th. Next up, it came from County Durham…Martha is back with a brand new LP, Love Keeps Kicking due April 5th on Dirtnap Records in the United States and on Big Scary Monsters elsewhere. Your port of entry is the galloping title track, which serves as the first single. One of our favorite discoveries of late is Boston’s Shallow Pools and “Sinking” is off of their upcoming EP Spring, out March 8th. If fortune finds you in the greater Boston area around that time, they’ll be doing shows to celebrate the release.

Every blast off the new Indoor Pets LP has been promising so far, and “Hi” raises the bar further. Be Content will be out March 8th via Wichita Records and the Kent, UK quartet will be aggressively touring their homeland all spring. Corey Cunningham is making his play for the indie take on the ‘Hardest Working Man In Show Business’ crown. While best known for Smokescreens and his stint with Terry Malts, Business of Dreams unveils yet another facet of his talent. The LP Ripe For Anarchy is out now, and “Chasing That Feeling” is a formidable taste. We’ve been keeping our eyes on Brooklyn’s Pronoun and the latest to enchant us is “Stay.” Fresh off their first UK tour dates, the big news is that the debut LP is finally on the horizon: I’ll Show You Stronger will be available May 24th on Rhyme & Reason Records.
