Sondre Lerche's "I Could Not Love You Enough" is a sonic circus to enjoy

Norwegian-born Sondre Lerche provides yet another bouncy, melancholic track to chant to: “I Could Not Love You Enough” is short, and it is sweet, and it will have you feeling giddy and sad all at once. The marching drums, explosive distortion, and swelling atmospheres all create a sonic circus where Lerche’s confessional refrains trapeze through and evoke emotion. The new single announces a deluxe edition of Lerche’s latest album titled Patience, out October 23rd. The music of “I Could Not Love You Enough” is soothing enough for contemplation but active enough for the busiest of mornings or evenings; stream this new single for a taste of the sonic spectacle in store. - René Cobar, photo by Jen Steele

   

ARO debuts perilous single "House Of Lies," plays Hotel Cafe 09.26

Aimée Osbourne’s project ARO has released a new single titled “House Of Lies” that tip-toes on the sinister and reveals a soundscape that is a pop, industrial blend so edgy. Osbourne’s vocals crawl to the beat of the track and provide a soft touch to the otherwise sharp clanking sounds that accompany an atmosphere of peril; a dangerous sort of love is evoked through the music. “House Of Lies” is part of Osbourne’s upcoming record Vacare Adamare, set for release October 30th. Aimée Osbourne will be streaming live from Hotel Cafe on September 26th. Stream this synth-heavy track below for a dangerous type of song. - René Cobar
