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:

Barrie-Canyons-Art

We're psyched to premiere the magical debut single from Barrie, a young Brooklyn band that we expect will win a lot of hearts in 2018. The group, whose members serendipitously converged on NYC from various locales -- Baltimore, Boston, São Paulo, London, and Upstate New York, specifically -- says that every revision to the sumptuous, warmly glowing "Canyons" "was like a swipe of sandpaper, stripping it down and roughing up the sweetness...

Bloomington's Amy Oelsner, aka Amy O, follows up the soaring, short-but-sweet blast of sunny nostalgia that is her new single "Lavender Night" with another melodic, vaguely '90s-recalling anthem/highlight from her excellent new record Elastic, out soon on Winspear. "Sunday Meal" is an emotional and relatable celebration of the concept of "home", wherever that may be, inspired by the death of Amy's grandmother last summer. Amy tells us about the new track:
