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.

Brooklyn's Nicole Schneit aka Air Waves shares the gorgeous album-closing reverie from her excellent new record Warrior, out next month on Austin label Western Vinyl.

AIR WAVES - PARTING GLANCES

Here's a moving new jam from Nicole Schneit, aka Air Waves, taken from her beautiful, long-awaited forthcoming full-length Parting Glances.
