Field Medic's "used 2 be a romantic" is a bittersweet ode to life on the road (Video)

Life on the road must be as thrilling as it is exhausting. On the video for his latest single "used 2 be a romantic," Field Medic—the stage name for folk-rock songwriter Kevin Patrick—shares a video journal of sorts that capture his numerous touring experiences: the crowd's warm embrace; the backstage banter; the everyday ennui. It's all there—Patrick's daily routine is consumed by night after night of stirring performances and intimate cigarette breaks. "I need a cigarette/ those fuckers talked over my whole set," he sings with genuine candor, strumming a twinkling melody that brightens its otherwise muted country drift.

"Used 2 be a romantic" is taken from Field Medic's latest album, fade into the dawn, which is out now via Run for Cover Records. And while we're on the topic of touring, catch Patrick play a hometown show at Moroccan Lounge on Sunday, June 9. Juan Rodríguez

Bre Kennedy plays Musician's Corner 05.25; listen to new single "Strings Attached"

Songwriter Bre Kennedy plays the Musicians' Corner on May 25th to mark the release of her single "Strings Attached". "Strings Attached" has bits and pieces of dream pop, indie folk, and Americana driving it. Perhaps its closest major-label relative musically is Shania Twain's "You're Still The One", although the two songs are opposites when it comes to lyrics. On "Strings Attached", Kennedy sings of old pain from a relationship, reckoning with a hole in her heart, and learning to rise while she carries the load of lost love. Take a listen to the new single below, and catch her at the Musician's Corner on May 25th. - Will Sisskind
