Raised in Bakersfield, California before making her way to New York City; Jeni Magana issued her debut EP 'Golden Tongue' last year on Audio Antihero Records to glowing reviews and national airplay, making a number of end-of-the-year lists. Magana offers a stunning new voice in the Indie world: ghostly but raw, tender but powerful.
“Pages” is a Free Tour Single from Brooklyn's Jeni Magana, following her acclaimed late 2016 debut EP Golden Tongue. Her work has recently found praise and support from The Line of Best Fit, London In Stereo, EARMILK, yvynyl, BBC, FM4, Podcart, GoldFlakePaint, Shout4Music, IMPOSE, BIRP.FM, El Correo, Fame Mag, The Le Sigh, The Grey Estates, God Is In The TV, Collapse Board, Resonance FM, Dandelion Radio and numerous Best of the Year lists.
Live favourite “Pages” is an early experiment in Magana’s ever shifting solo sound, previously unreleased up to now. It’s a gorgeous standalone document of her evolving creativity and expression. The song shows a more traditionally Indie Rock side to Magana's dreamy Alt. Pop sound with a her stunning voice soaring over the ragged instrumentation. It's heartfelt and emotional rock music with ghosts whispering through the walls.

Arbor Lights have been making a racket in their home town of Birmingham since 2010. Greg, Alex, Matt and James stole their name from the pub where they met. They self-released their first single On A Sea in 2011, and a self-titled EP in 2012 & a full length album called "Hatherton Lake" in 2013. Since then they have gigged around Birmingham (and occasionally further afield) with too many amazing bands to name.
Last February Arbor Lights were invited to Birmingham City Uni to record a live session for their friends at Sunrunner Sessions. The video never came together but these four new songs feel like a nice snapshot of where they 've been since Hatherton Lake came out. This release, as ever, is pay-what-you-want, but all proceeds will be donated to a local charity. CHADD is a housing association working around the Black Country to provide shelter to the homeless, both young and old, and victims of domestic abuse. The work they do is more important than ever and they wanted to do their part to help a cause that's close to them on a personal level. Please consider giving generously.

"Somewhere between madness and lack of education, Diablo 2 and adolescent sweat, the mysticism of the big world computer network and the TV attached alone in the living room. From that place in your mind that you do not know invented or The pastime glued to the upper molar and the acidity of Coca-Cola in the depths of his tongue imploding his palate in a fractal of crazy memories and associations and a very secret truth that one day you almost understood and today lives in the Part of your dreams that you no longer remember.
It is from these things that "Which are the True Midnight Monsters?", The first record of the Phantom Sites project, is done. Composed in a solo way by Felipe Soares (Amandinho, 151515) he cuts nostalgias, adds sensations, coexists between opposites and finds in a network of memories that we think are intimate and insurmountable.
The abstract romanticism of the beginning of the millennium, the first generation that grew more inside the internet than it had been and now does not know what to do and that mainly does not know to differentiate the things that believe othe things in itself. Who did not see the end of the world but knew the end of the Polara that is much worse. The profile of your friend who has a child, works, and does not care much more for the internet. It's about this ocean where you came from and now it separates you that this disc speaks.
Phantom sites clandestinely accessed on the computer of their friends' parents. The midnight monsters between unfinished purchases and that message you never answered. Conspiracies, terrorists and the myth of freedom. Now at a young pace.

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.
