It’s no secret that we’re fans of Portland’s Mama Bird Recordings. They’ve released a couple of incredible albums from Luka Kuplowsky and Skyway Man earlier this month, and now we have a new single from singer-songwriter Johanna Samuels we can’t get enough of. Now, it’s time for you to take a listen.
Check out the video for High Tide For One in the embed, and be sure to hit up her socials below for more going forward. Her debut album will be released in the spring, so stay tuned.
If you’re familiar with Father John Misty (aka Joshua Tillman), you’re probably familiar with his younger brother Zach’s solo-project, Pearly Gate Music. In fact, before Josh adopted the FJM moniker, he was playing in Fleet Foxes and also played drums for PGM on a tour together. Recently, the younger Tillman dropped a new song on the masses and we couldn’t wait to share it with you; 10 years in the making and well worth the wait.

Cheekface hail from Los Angeles, California. This afternoon, we came across their cover of Rosie Tucker‘s Lauren, and we can’t stop hitting the repeat button on this one. It’s a real catchy number that makes you want to get up and dance all over the room. Now, it’s time for you to hear what we’re talking about.

Singer/songwriter Sarah Beth Tomberlin hails from Louisville, Kentucky but now calls Los Angeles home. Her latest single Hours recently came to our attention here at The iM and has been on repeat ever since. Now, it’s time to share it with you.
“‘Hours’ is a song ruminating on time spent with someone who makes time spent doing nothing together feel meaningful. So many love songs are like ‘love me’ or ‘i love you’, but writing this I wasn’t sure what I was feeling or the other person’s feelings. I have a tendency to feel the need to explain myself before I’ve even been asked to. I think this song is me trying to do that in my head instead of with that person prematurely, even though I sent this song to them directly after I wrote it.“

Los Angeles psych-rockers Lord Loud recently came up on our radar, and to say that we’re excited about what we hear, would be the understatement of the month. Loud, fuzzy, guitar-driven sounds make this record one hell of a rock n’ roll ride. Now, it’s time for you to hear what we’re talking about.

If you’re not familiar with Death Valley Girls, the indie-rock outfit hails from Los Angeles, California. Just today they released a brand new song and video on the masses and we want you to know about it. The clip was made by 61 artists of various ages, who interpreted the lyrics and painted them directly onto 16mm film. Pretty cool right?

Singer/songwriter Jenny O. hails from Long Island, New York but now calls Los Angeles home. We just came across her new video for Old Habits and can’t seem to take this thing off repeat here at The iM. The song will be included on New Truth, a follow-up to her spectacular 2017 effort, Peace and Information.

We first told you about Los Angeles-based synth-pop artist Kowloon back in late May. Well, he’s back with new music, and just like the first single, Paradise, we can’t seem to get enough. It’s a smooth, laid back number that sounds like a missing track straight off Destroyer‘s album, Kaputt.
