Single Premiere: Jacob Freeman "Mask Mirror"

We are proud to be able to premiere the latest single, "Mask Mirror", from Jacob Freeman. This is the third single from Freeman's forthcoming debut album, Is The Mirror, which will be released tomorrow (October 23rd).

Freeman shared the single's origin with us and it came to him after a planned trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras with a newfound, semi-long distance romantic partner. Instead, they traded the trip for a more intimate celebration at home here in Chicago. Freeman's partner gave him a silver Mardi Gras mask and a few days later as he was driving back to New York City for school, the reflection of the mask caught his eye in the rearview mirror and the song followed.

   

Single Premiere: Red Spot Rhythm Section

We are proud to be able to premiere the new single from Red Spot Rhythm Section, “Hard to Give Thanks" B/W "Foundation”. This is the folk and reggae fusion outlet of Joshua Siegal, and for this single he has enlisted the guest talents of Shane Jonas (Akasha, Lowdown Brass Band) on vocals, Mike Bruno (Spare Parts) on drums, and Michael Bizar (AJ Croce) on lead guitar.

This is Siegal's first new single since 2018 and it was partially recorded remotely after their scheduled studio time was cancelled back in March.

   

Abbi Rajasekhar "Seeing The Circle"

Abbi Rajasekhar has released her second EP, "Seeing The Circle", of 2020. Back in July she had released her first EP, "Nienna", as a solo artist and first since in general since 2015. Where "Nienna" was a concept EP sung from the point of view from the character by the same name from the Tolkien book Silmarillion, this new EP is more personal, but also a touch lighter than its predecessor.

   

Glitter Moneyyy "Dangerous"

Glitter Moneyyy have dropped a new Superknova produced single called "Dangerous". This is the first new music from the duo of TayyySlayyy and Queen Trashley since their 2019 sophomore album Binge.
