The pure folk of Suzanne Vallie

If you feel the need to be soothed today, take a little listen to the latest by Suzanne Vallie. Any song off the album is equally as pleasing as the last. Tracks feel like folk lullabies: gentle guitar plucking, Vallie's sweet voice, soft harmonies. Based out of Big Sur--and maybe that's where the nature-inspired songs come from--Vallie pops in and out of the Bay Area for shows with different bands, including Range of Light Wilderness, and her solo works. In fact, she'll be playing Hotel Utah this August 14. Come in for some soothing purity. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor 

 

   

New Sam Silbert EP Available for Streaming & Download

Singer-songwriter Sam Silbert (of Gorpho) recently shared a solo effort, simply titled Songs. The three-song EP captivates with painstakingly, brutal honesty. Creating beautiful tales of loss and heartbreak, it's a bit of bedroom-folk at its finest. Feels aplenty are captured on this brief yet poignant snapshot in time.

   

Lady Lazarus’ “I Know What it Feels Like” video

Santa Cruz-based Lady Lazarus just released her single “I Know What it Feels Like” and it is a mystical, gentle journey. The accompanying video is mesmerizing and almost nerve-wracking in a “what’s about to happen” type of way. It’s dreamy folk pop, with quiet keys and vocals and a touch of that warm synth feel. She’s playing Hotel Utah on August 14 and you should join the night. Hypnotize yourself with her video then come feel the happy daze at her next show. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
