Here It Goes by E

Ryan Lafferty released his aptly titled debut single "Here It Goes" today. A surreal deconstructed country with pop influences sound wraps itself around narrative lyrics that spell out Lafferty's journey.

Story-like lyrics reach beyond the song with their honesty: a first love gone wrong followed by an endearing breakaway that proves it wasn't the worst thing that happened that day. Lafferty's sound is fresh and different, but stays within the realm of pop country, making it as comfortable and easy to listen to as it is exciting.

Natural by E

Russ Macklin's "Natural" featuring Kyle Reynolds is a cool step up from the electronic pop you're used to; with its thoughtful lyrics, warm melody, and cool beat it's everything you need right now to dance around and de-stress.

Said the two of the track, "I had this track and we pretty much just had it playing on a loop, what we thought would be the chorus. Kyle was humming and words were just slipping out and non-words were coming in there and I was like, "hey, whoa, did you just say natural?" and he was like, "uh, yeah, totally," so I was like, "okay, feels so natural" and that's where we went. We literally went from that title word" (Macklin) "...and it's very obvious when something is natural, as far as chemistry, and it's very obvious when something is not and feels forced and uncomfortable. We had the idea of natural, so we, together, painted this picture" (Kyle).

A gentle mix of the singer-songwriter style with pure pop - full of irresistible melodies, catchy hooks, and a chorus that only takes one listen to fall for - Macklin's easy control over the production and Reynold's emotive vocals lift the track to something listenable, pure, and just real damn good. We'd recommend listening to the unstoppable single all weekend, so check out their interview here and follow all those sites to stay up to date with Russ Macklin and Kyle Reynolds.

Fire Fire Ocean Liner by E

Auditorium (Spencer Berger) offers a gentle lullaby for change with his single "Fire Fire Ocean Liner".

The difference between a singer and an artist lies in the core of their work, and there is no doubt that Auditorium is an artist, one whose craft is more than worthy of your attention. Not just a songwriter but a lyricist and a storyteller willing to share the darkest parts of his life with you (the theme of the forthcoming album lies within Berger's need to confront the reality of his own eventual death), delving in deep but handling that dark with an unrelenting hope and shining a light on the simple beauty of being alive. Lines like "it's okay to sink my dear" are a kind reminder before "feel no pain now, feel no fear" echoes to a satisfying end in time with an equally careful but unsettling video.

If you can stand to watch the video all the way through, it gorgeously ties in the uncertainty, fear, and ultimate calm that comes with the acceptance that something is about to end and things are going to change, whether you're ready or not, all while keeping you just a little uncomfortable and squeamish in its own smart way; it's really done so well that, if you think about its reasons, the video becomes far easier to watch. That being said, try to listen to the song in whole before watching the video; fall for the track before you let the visuals influence your opinion.

Check out the single, look for far more to come from Auditorium's caring and careful voice this year with the release of his album, The First Music, January 27th, and follow all those sites for more music to fall for.
