“Too Late” by Blanche

photo 5Blanche is the new project by folkster Steffaloo and electronic producer Nknwn which spawned when the former recruited the latter for a track on her collaborative album Heart Beats. Their synergy sparked so well that they returned with a shared moniker and a debut EP entitled One. The release’s three tracks showcase lush vocals woven in between experimental digi-effects of beats and synths. But the most intriguing aspect of this duo is that they have never met as Nknwn refuses to reveal his identity and only communicates via email. Here’s their riveting “Too Late”:

“Let’s Go Through” by My Double, My Brother (Premiere)

My-Double-My-Brother_Angi-WelschMy Double, My Brother is a rare band of heart. What started as a few college friends playing in an old church in Whittier is now a solid act following in the footsteps of Cold War Kids via earnest passion and wholesome appeal. Behind the local music scene of raucous garage rawk and surf pop, SoCal life also carries a soul and it’s this voice that the quintet channels on their forthcoming second album Shelves. Recorded with producer Jon O’Brien, the record is due next year but for now here’s “Let’s Go Through”:

My Double, My Brother will perform at The Satellite on January 12th along with Wildling.

“Colors” by Genevieve

SHOT_07_170Genevieve, the former frontwoman of Company of Thieves, has returned as a popster. Now living in a haunted house in Hollywood, she recently leaked the track “Colors” off her debut EP, Show Your Colors, dropping March 10th via Wind-up Records. She claims the release is inspired by “the simplistic beauty hidden amidst the everyday, like cross-country car rides, quiet libraries, airports, the ends of phone calls, and the beginnings of movies” –perhaps explaining why the song’s barrage of pop punches deliver an emotional extol of vitality:

Genevieve will perform tomorrow (December 16th) at The Hotel Cafe.
