Singer-songwriter and musician John Lowell Anderson hails from Los Angeles, California. Working with producer Tyler Chester (Andrew Bird, Dawes), he’s created an exceptional and captivating piece of work with his latest single, Four am.

The song immediately struck a chord with us after just one listen. That being said, we couldn’t be more excited to be premiering it at The iM today. More on the track below:

“True to its title, “Four am” was conceived in the wee hours of the morning. The song is both melancholy and hopeful and hints at the distorted reality that ties in with lack of sleep. JLA often finds creativity in the sleepless nights. “This song was sort of following my stream of consciousness in those moments and the lyrics really poured out from that.”

🎧 The Hold Steady – “Heavy Covenant”

It’s no secret we’ve been long-time fans of Brooklyn indie-rockers The Hold Steady. So, we were stoked to come across a new track today. The band dropped the first single Family Farm last month and also announced the new album would be out on February 19th on their own label, Positive Jams. If this latest song is any indication, we’re in for something special.

🎧 POSTDATA – “Nobody Knows”

We first told you about Halifax-based singer-songwriter Paul Murphy (aka POSTDATA) back in mid-November when he dropped his stellar song, Twin Flames. Well, the Wintersleep frontman is back with another single, Nobody Knows, and we can’t get enough of this thing here at The iM.

🎧 Falcon Jane – “Heaven” (Romshii Remix)

Both Romshii and Falcon Jane were included in our top albums of the year list for 2020, so it only makes sense we’d be super stoked to find out they have a new song together. Originally on Falcon Jane‘s album Faith, Romshii gives the track the remix treatment. It’s been on heavy rotation over the last couple of days here at The iM, and now it’s time to share it with you.
