    “Growing up, people would always say I was too happy to be depressed, or too social to have anxiety,” says Liza Anne Odachowski, the critically acclaimed songwriter better known these days by her stage name Liza Anne. “In their eyes, because I was one thing, I couldn’t also be something else. I think we all exist in duality, though. I can be everything and nothing all at once.”

    W/ Andre Ethier
    On Rebound, Eleanor Friedberger has created a subtle world that is a little fizzier, a little synthier- more cinematic, more meditative- than her previous three albums. In the wake of 2016's jarring political shift, Friedberger felt a need to be even more self-reliant, right down to the album artwork, in which she painted a backdrop and styled herself as an attempt to look like an amped up Lizzy Mercier Descloux.

    In contrast to the sonic serenity of 2016's New View, which she arranged and recorded with her touring band, Rebound was recorded mostly on her own and with the producer Clemens Knieper. Programmed drums, a Juno synthesizer, and muted rhythm guitars dominate the landscape where influences range from Stereolab and Suicide to Lena Platonos and Yellow Magic Orchestra.

    Manu Crooks is starting to make some considerable noise with his international-sounding hip hop making waves worldwide. From his breakout single “Everyday” immediately added to world-renown radio station Triple J, to his Beats 1 Radio & Zane Lowe-endorsed “Blowin’ Up” & “Assumptions”, Manu Crooks has surpassed any definitive entry level status to loud anticipation.

    His debut mood forever project, executively produced by Miracle & DOPAM!NE, displays Manu’s innate ability to swerve in an unpredictable trajectory while sustaining his thematic moodiness. Crowned the new face of hip hop in his native Sydney, Manu now bears the weight of a continent on his back as he sets his eyes on being Australia’s first ever international hip hop export.

    The three most important lessons worth learning from the mood board of Manu Crooks; Conform Never, Speak Little, Assert Always.

    The band that would come to be called VARSITY started out as a good idea at a party in Chicago, IL in 2013. Stef Smith (vocals/keyboards) invited long time friends and guitarists Pat Stanton and Dylan Weschler to play a salon night, they had fun, and unlike many good ideas sparked at parties in Chicago, this one actually had legs.

    VARSITY released their first full-length, "VARSITY," in March 2015. The Chicago Tribune lauded what fans of the live show already knew -- that the band's "sharp attention to detail, winning guitar riffs, and sweet melodies" provided a sound that is "refined and sophisticated, with a level of charisma that would typically be found in a group years older." (#ageism) VARSITY's meticulous approach to recording stands out: thirty minutes of streamlined, try-anything-once, catchy rock. Starting in August 2015, VARSITY started putting out digital-only singles. TIME Magazine said of "Eye To Eye," "This Chicago outfit arrives at its hooks in a roundabout way, but the path toward them is a delight..." This singles approach forced the band to push itself and explore new sounds. VARSITY has also released music videos for "Still Apart" and "Settle Down."

    W/ Demo Taped

    Amber Mark's multifaceted and sophisticated pop sound is rooted in a wide range of inspirations soaked up from time spent in the U.S., India, Germany, Brazil, and Nepal. She began writing music as a way to work through the 2013 death of her mother and in 2016, while in her early twenties, released her first songs: "Space," "Monsoon" (featuring her mother's voice), and "Way Back." The debut, supported by DJ Zane Lowe, left the biggest impact. The following year, after she signed with the Universal-distributed PMR Records -- home to similarly hard-to-pigeonhole singer/songwriters Jamie Woon and Jessie Ware -- Mark released 3:33am, an EP that featured the three previous singles and four new songs. ~ Andy Kellman

    Blending lyrical, introspective songwriting with a raw rock edge, Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Margaret Glaspy creates a sound that is both intimate and powerful. A native of California, Glaspy relocated to Boston after high school, where she attended the Berklee College of Music. After her scholarship money ran out, she would use her student ID to sneak into master classes while honing her songs and working odd jobs. A subsequent move to Brooklyn yielded new performing opportunities and the release of her debut EP, Homeschool, in 2012. A second EP, If & When, arrived a year later. Citing influences from Joni Mitchell's iconic Blue album to Weezer's Pinkerton, Glaspy's strong command as a vocalist and often bluesy electric guitar skills set her apart from much of the New York D.I.Y. indie scene. After first demoing and then recording her first full-length album at home, she was approached by ATO Records. A deal was struck and she entered a proper studio to re-record the tracks, which were mixed by Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, Lucius). Her full-length debut, Emotions and Math, arrived in June 2016. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
