Guns on Sunday, video/single by Joey Grace. Shot, directed, edited & released by Joey Grace, this music video punches far above its weight. Beautiful music, thoughtful lyrics, provocative images.  Joey is a talent who  deserves more recognition.  Also check out her new release Biorobot.  Stream on Spotify. Video on YouTube. https://www.joeygrace.com/

Strawberries, single by  Emma Guzman. Mystical, hypnotic, musical  that is both clever and classic at the same time.  A superb song by a prolific songwriter. It will stick with you. Stream on Spotify, Reverb Nation.

Portales, EP by Lika Nova. Blends and bounces between, indie pop and alt rock, stirred with smooth ballads, production flourishes  and gentle seduction. Truly unique and wonderful. Stream on Spotify and major platforms. Spanish.

Dance Fever, album by Florence and the Machine. Simply stunning. Bold and powerful, but subdued in moments. Cathartic and full of anger, but thoughtful and compelling. Florence Welch is a musical and poetic and literacy genius of our time. This semi-gothic blend of EDM, anthems, and drumming control will become a classic. On all major platforms and YouTube.

Superterrestrial Humanoid, single by Kaatii. Written from the vantage point of an alien dropped into suburbia trying to find their home,  this song is a metaphor for Kaatii’s  alienation as a young trans queer person in Texas where everyone sees them as a foreigner or worse. Wrenching, but addictive alt pop by a 15-yera old with a big future ahead of her. Stream on Spotify

Vida tan Bonita, album by Francisca Valenzuela. Another blow you away album by the Chulean-American singer/songwriter/fashion designer/ activist, after the smashing La Fortaleza  in 2020..  One of the most brilliant talents of our time, she has given us 11 songs, each one a  unique gem, from the joy of “Salú” to the pull of  Despierto”, to the flight of  “Como La For”. This album  will captivate audiences for years.  Buy/stream on all major platforms. Spanish

BONUS. Kendrick Lamar: Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers. First album in a long time and worth waiting for.
