Step Children release single on World Suicide Prevention Day

In honor of World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10), Step Children released their latest single, “Hot-Wired Cars.” Band member Derek Shaw says the song is “…full of memories, regret and hope…people who are hurting that badly so their best to hide what’s really happening.” The song is a tribute to several friends who have recently taken their own lives. Sonically, the song has a touch of Elton John, some twang and pop. We’re always down for a tune that helps raise awareness and reminds us to love each other and listen to each other. - Lucille Faulkner

New Track: "Problem With The World" - The Retinas

Garage-rock power trio The Retinas has a new full-length self-titled album coming out on October 25 via Medical Records. The LP's lead single, "Problem With The World," is an oldie but a goodie from the bands catalogue, with new arrangements and lyrics. It's an anthem for the misunderstood. You're not alone. Enjoy!

   

On "Paralyze the Dead," Stereo Match celebrate individuality

On "Paralyze the Dead," Stereo Match push themselves to follow their instincts. Following their dance-oriented debut single, "Worship You," the indie-pop quartet retain their groove, albeit, with a funkier and bouncier pop sheen. With Young the Giant's Eric Cannata on production duties, the band inspires others to overcome their fears and to put your true self out there. It's a timeless message that—matched with their joyous spirit and slick hooks—always goes down easy. 

"Paralyze the Dead" is featured of Stereo Match's forthcoming LP, HUMAN, due out later this year. - Juan Rodríguez

   

Shining Mirrors Releases New Single, "Johanna"

Drew Robinson’s project Shining Mirrors draws attention for reimagining the decadent folk-rock developed in historic NYC venues when the epicenter of the city's rock'n'roll was still Manhattan's West village. The third "folkier" Velvet Underground album resonates in single "Joanna," mixed with echoes of, perhaps, the Kinks and Pavement. The group dropped their debut EP in 2017, but this new single, a preview of their sophomore release, gives the impression that the sonic cards have been thoroughly shuffled - check the band's Facebook page for news about the release date. - Susan Moon
