3 Songs: On Repeat

Liz Brasher – “Blood Of The Lamb” (The Memphis-by-way-of-North Carolina singer/songwriter/guitarist’s highly-anticipated debut album, Painted Image was recently released on Fat Possum Records.  Brasher’s powerful voice lights up her anthemic and timeless-sounding torch songs which are set to organ-drenched Gospel, soulful girl group and gritty garage rock grooves that improve upon her promising debut EP released just last year.  Check out her hybridization of Gospel and Motown on the leadoff track heard here.)  

Skinny Girl Diet – “Shed Your Skin” (The London-based duo consisting of, Delilah Holiday & Ursula Holiday, recently released their stunning sophomore album, Ideal Woman, on HHBTM Records.  Their genre-defiant sound is equal parts grunge and punk; with a DIY attitude and a youthful outlook, the duo delivers cathartic anthems for the disenfranchised.  Check out the buzzing Melvins-like riffage of the standout second single from the album here.)

Wild Pink – “There Is A Ledger” (Shy Layers Remix) (The Brooklyn trio led by John Ross return March 1 with a new EP titled, 5 Songs.  Available for pre-order now, the EP follows last year’s excellent sophomore album, Yolk In The Fur - which paired subtle synths with heartland rock.  It features two new songs and three remixes of Yolk tracks including, this one by fellow Tiny Engines label mates Shy Layers, who add effects to the vocals, set it to a skittering beat and make it more atmospheric.)
