Bay Ledges drops warm new single "Dive"

On the cusp of the new year, the temperature's starting to drop, but indie pop music maker Bay Ledges (a.k.a Zach Hurd) is here to warm things up with his new single "Dive". The theme of the track seems straightforward, evoking images of the ocean at sunset with waves of stripped-down but lush sound. Even though the year's almost done, "Dive" marks Hurd's first release in 2019, following a whopping four singles last year. Hurd has more songs in the works for next year, but for right now, take a listen to "Dive" below. - Will Sisskind


12.16: Shannon Lay performs final show of residency at Zebulon with Ty Segall

On December 16th, Shannon Lay will perform her final show of her residency at Zebulon, with Ty Segall joining her on the bill. Lay released her first Sub Pop album August this past summer, but to add to her discography with the label, she's just released the singles "Blue" and "We Mend" for the Sub Pop Singles club. "Blue" spins the often-sad connotation of the word into something more hopeful and romantic, with Lay's lyric "I will love you 'til my hair turns blue" setting the theme for the song. "Blue" and "We Mend" share a mellow, folksy vibe, with something more intense brewing underneath. Lay already has big plans for 2020, with a European tour set for February. Take a listen to "Blue" and "We Mend" below. - Will Sisskind


Talker drops video for new track "Learning The Feeling"

Celeste Tauchar of talker has received plenty of press in the past year, what with her releasing her debut EP Horror Films back in February and wowing audiences show after show. Not looking to slack off before the end of the year, Tauchar has released her new single "Learning The Feeling", as well as the intense music video for the track. It is the follow-up to her previous music video for "Keep Me Safe", a slow burner in which Tauchar sang about waiting for truth. "Learning The Feeling" symbolizes that moment, as Tauchar's voice explodes with energy in the chorus, letting everything that had bubbled within her over the past year boil over. Take a look at the video for yourself below. - Will Sisskind
