Warm Human "Ring + (612)"

Warm Human (aka Meredith Johnston) has released a new double single "Ring" b/w "(612)". This comes closely on the heels of her most recent album, The Bummer Album, which was just released back in July.

Johnston has two albums planned, Club Awful and Dark, from which these singles are taken, but it is unclear when and how they will be released.

Her last single came from The Bummer Album, and was the powerful "I Wanna B Domesticated". You can see the emotional video for that single below.

   

Raye Zaragoza calls for unity in new music video for "They Say"

Now residing in Long Beach, California, Raye Zaragoza is spreading her sonic wings and taking flight. The new music video for her latest single “They Say” is a beautiful tribute to folk music’s power of unity that is evermore needed during these divisive times, and that through sharp harmonica leads and a rich vocal delivery is easy to understand. Zaragoza, Indigenous on her father’s side and a first-generation Japanese-American on her mother’s, rejects any type of segregation in music and pushes for an inclusive world via a song that embraces and rejects politics at the same time; the music can exist calmly in all hearts, inspiring reflection. The music video filmed with director Matthew Freiheit in Los Angeles on March 17 (a day after the city’s lockdowns took effect) is a walk through a cityscape bare of bodies but not of souls yearning for a better tomorrow. Stream the new music video for “They Say” below for something heartwarming and real. - René Cobar, photo by Caleb James
