“Yeah You” by Freedom Fry

chair above 1974remix cropMarried duo Freedom Fry refuses to take a break from writing infectiously catchy songs. Their latest, “Yeah You,” is their folk pop interpretation of “the feeling you get when you’re falling in love.” The love bug track features kick-drum thumps that mimic blissful heartbeats while mandolin strums and harmonized vocals evoke a buoyant mindset.

“It don’t matter, we can work it out.”

“Shallow Grave” Live Video by Lee Gallagher and The Hallelujah (Premiere)

@Emily+Sevin+LG&TH_1Lee Gallagher and The Hallelujah might practice in Potrero Hill, but they’re a bunch of Midwestern and Southern transplants who bleed Americana roots and sweat gritty blues. Their recently released self-titled debut LP was recorded over nine long hazy days and dares to capture the spirit of their live performances by blaring gospel fervor with psychedelic abandon. And to prove their shows’ rambunctious reputation, they shot a live video for their latest single “Shallow Grave” during their record release party at Milk Bar in Haight-Ashbury.

“Too Young to Fall In Love” by Chelsea Lankes (Cover)

unnamedA perfect cover is when an artist contorts the original beyond recognition yet retains its melodic core. Chelsea Lankes proves her songcraft by converting Motley Crue‘s hair metal shred “Too Young to Fall In Love” into an indie pop ode which drops today as a 7″ via B3SCI Records. Her artistic versatility and audacity is fierce.

Chelsea Lankes will perform tonight (March 2nd) at Bardot for School Night!
