Mike Morrissey delivers cool single "Set The Record" with poise, hosts open mic 06.05

Mike Morrissey's latest single "Set The Record" has a neat character to it that suggests you sit back to take in its sprightly sounds. The Somerville-based singer/songwriter delivers in the song a lively collage of unadulterated electric guitar riffs that gush out to the rhythm of an energetic drum beat. The vocals—relaxed and poised—have a perpetual coolness that fits the track's breezy vibe. Morrissey's indie-pop music fits in beautifully in that relaxing Sunday morning playlist of yours, next to Belle and Sebastian. Mike Morrissey is hosting Aeronaut Brewing Company's monthly open mic event in Somerville on June 5th. Enjoy "Set The Record" streaming below. - Rene Cobar

Country up-and-comer Cotter Hill plays 06.01 at The Basement Nashville

Cotter Hill has the sound of a country artist that's played the game for years, but his first EP Sober Up came out just last year. Hill moved west from Cleveland, TN in 2016 to chase his musical dream, and already he's appeared on the iTunes Country charts, toured the Southeast, and shown up on local radio. Throughout 2019, Hill has continued to build upon his career through even more shows; in fact, you can catch him at The Basement Nashville on June 1st, where he'll perform on a bill with fellow local country artists Justin Spivey and Cameron Blackburn. Take a listen to his single "Forever Works" below. - Will Sisskind

New The Tisburys EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Led by Tyler Asay, The Tisburys have a new EP, which they've titled Wax Nostalgic. Exuberant folk/Americana streams in loose, catchy bursts that hit a personal chord. Meshing a sense of the optimism that one often holds in memories and ideal hypotheticals, there’s a bright, bouncy tone that lifts one up but is countered by a sadness felt in real time. The Tisburys will be performing this evening upstairs at World Cafe Live, where they'll be joined by The 40th Parallel and Solars.
