SonReal/ ‘The Aaron LP’/ Black Box


Whether its folk-tinged acoustic ballads like the album opener “Fearless” and “1000 Highways,” the soul-infused tracks “Healing” (ft. Jessie Reyez) and “Quit,” or the intensely personal joints “Voicemail” and “Ted,” every song is a deeply relatable look into the person behind the music - Aaron Hoffman.

Dan Tepfer/ ‘Natural Machines’/ Sunnyside Records


Using Yamaha's self-playing Disklavier piano as his only instrument, “one of the moment’s most adventurous and relevant musicians” (New York Magazine) sets a new framework for how humans can make meaningful art. These songs, simultaneously written and recorded in single takes, are products of Tepfer's improvisations interacting with his own computer programs; his algorithms process the music to instantly create counterparts and trigger the Disklavier's keys to express sound.

Nick Lowe/ ‘Love Starvation / Trombone’/ Yep Roc


Lowe, the “master songwriter who never takes himself too seriously” (Rolling Stone), and Los Straitjackets, America’s beloved masked men of surf-and-spy guitar instrumentals, team up once again. Recorded in Woodstock, NY, over a short break from touring, the EP features three new Lowe originals and a cover of “Raincoat In The River,” an obscure gem originally recorded by Sammy Turner and produced by Phil Spector.
