3 Songs: On Repeat

William Matheny – “Living Half To Death” (West Virgina-based singer-songwriter William Matheny – former multi-instrumentalist of Southeast Engine – is set to release his long-awaited debut album, Strange Constellations today via Misra Records.  An excellent storyteller in the vein of Craig Finn, Matheny weaves folksy narratives into his brand of Americana that blends Jackson Browne-like 70’s folk-pop with rollicking alt-country for a very promising debut.)  

Dude York – “Black Jack” (Out today via Hardly Art Records is Sincerely, the sophomore album from Seattle trio Dude York.   Out of the garage and into the arena - produced by John Goodmanson and JR Slayer aka The Blood Brothers’ Cody Votolato - the new album steps it up and captures the band’s wild, frenetic energy and gloriously fuzzed-out power-pop that incorporates elements of glam and anthemic arena-rock riffs and melodies.)   

King Woman – “Utopia” (The Bay Area-based band, led by the dramatic and hypnotically-beautiful voice of Kristina Esfandiari – also of Miserable and formerly of Whirr – are set to release their debut album, Created in the Image of Suffering, today by way of Relapse Records.  Esfandiari wrestles with religion and her inner demons set to a stark, gloomy and psychedelic soundtrack of atmospheric yet unceasingly heavy doom and post-metal.)
