video premiere: Major Murphy – Mary

Print

Grand Rapids' Major Murphy share the visuals for their sweetly shimmering soft-rock gem "Mary", a highlight from the group's debut LP No. 1, out now on Winspear. The song's Weird Life-directed video finds a stoic sister Mary wandering pensively through the streets of Chicago and becoming mildly dismayed by some drunk teens on the L, before being comforted by the dulcet tones of Major Murphy's excellent live show at Chicago institution the Empty Bottle:

JESSICA RISKER STARS

Chicago's Jessica Risker shares the gorgeous title track and tone-setting opener from her new album, out this spring on Austin label Western Vinyl.

premiere: Different Sleep – Lost Profit (feat. Angelina Lucero)

DIFFERENT SLEEP

We were first introduced to Rafa Alvarez — aka Different Sleep — by Jerome LOL when he took over the site a couple years back. On his skittering new single, the Chicago-based producer teams up with regular Jerome LOL collaborator (and member of Different Sleep's Friends of Friends labelmates IDYLL) Angelina Lucero, whose hauntingly otherworldly vocals take everything they touch to another level, adding a mysterious vibe and a heavy emotional layer to an already transfixing track...
