Accessory "Eyes For Berlin"

Accessory has released a new single called “Eyes For Berlin” via the Brooklyn label Fire Talk.

This is the Synth laden sound of Jason Balla of Ne-Hi, Dehd, and Earring. This is the first new music from Balla’s solo project since his 2018 debut album, Blue Tape.

The song is about finding “new eyes” in moments and surroundings both new and familiar. Here is the graceful way Balla phases it; "It's about finding new eyes. Seeing the old and everyday that has become the background of my life with a fresh sense of wonder. Years ago, I went to Berlin, crashed on a friend's floor and walked and walked. Even through the cold faced grey of Berlin winter, the city felt so full of life and it all felt so new to me. There are moments where I have these eyes again in the most surprising of places: an old neighborhood I used to live in, a friend's face, the sunset through the McDonald's golden arches out my bedroom window. And they all remind me that the world can be beautiful and good."

Dehd recently announced a Spring tour with a hint of new music and more dates to come.


Sloth Hands @ Burlington Bar (1/24)

Sloth Hands have released a re-recorded version of the title track, “Sorry, Tom”, from their 2014 debut album.

This is the work of AJ Boucek, Briana Certa, and John Stenger.

You can catch Sloth Hands at Burlington Bar on January 24th with The Grool Brothers, Distants, and Permanent Residue.


From the submissions: Mike Baretz's "Any Other Way"

When watching “Any Other Way,” the latest video by NY songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mike Baretz, it’s difficult not to be tickled by the charm of its production (and underlying soundtrack). Digital grain add a vintage aesthetic to visuals of Baretz and friends dicking around New York, underscored by a bass-friendly, primarily minimal alternative R&B song. Shots of the artist lip synching in a bodega, jumping out from behind a tree in the park, or playing some indoor basketball lend well to the easygoing nature of the tune, a more localized lofi beat to study or relax to that highlights Baretz’s prowess as a singer and producer, while emphasizing his personal desire to "not take [himself] too seriously." Peep the video for its vibe and levity below.
