Alexis Castrogiovanni- Someday My Thoughts Will Be Like A Range Of Mountains

Alexis Castrogiovanni’s pared-down, emotional musical landscapes employ genres from classical and folk to trip-hop and punk. Trained as a cellist, a lifetime of conservatory training emboldened her to interweave the expected with the unexpected, the structural with the improvisatory, inhabiting the limbo between singer-songwriter and classical musician. In her music, you can hear echoes of Arcade Fire saxophonist Colin Stetson, with her voice and writing sitting in comfortable companionship with singer-songwriters like Regina Spektor, Tori Amos, and Mitski—other classically trained musicians who dare to subvert genre. Someday My Thoughts Will Be Like a Range of Mountains is an EP reflecting on the four years of musical exploration that followed the end of Alexis’ formal classical training. In this time, Alexis taught herself songwriting, nurturing a long-held love of poetry that had few outlets in her cello studies. Her lyrics are part poetry, part self-philosophy, as she gives a window into her searches for meaning, and slowly learning to love. As her debut EP, Someday My Thoughts Will Be Like a Range of Mountains features some of the industry’s premier audio talents: Polaris Prize winner Jon Kaspy (Jeremy Dutcher) as recording engineer, with mixing by Grammy winner Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire), and Mastering by Harris Newman (Wolf Parade, A Silver Mt. Zion). The music video for the title track, Someday My Thoughts Will Be Like a Range of Mountains, was directed by Millefiore Clarkes (National Film Board of Canada).

Paul van Dyk & Alex M.O.R.P.H.- Hawkins Square

‘Hawkins Square,’ pays homage to Stranger Things, the Duffer Brothers’ Netflix smash. Produced in tandem with Paul’s longtime friend, studio mate, and VANDIT Records artist, Alex M.O.R.P.H., ‘Hawkins Square’ is driving and dark; a bath of progressive house and squelching 303s that’s a nod to the show’s mysterious storyline.

Peel Dream Magazine- Pad

With his third album as Peel Dream Magazine, Joseph Stevens beckons you toward a fabulist, zig-zag world entirely of his own design. On Pad (out Oct. 7 on Slumberland / Tough Love), he eschews the fuzzy glories of his indie pop past – vibraphone trembles while chamber strings take center stage. The curtains lift to reveal banjo. Chimes. Farfisa. And as he lets out a moan atop the album’s title track, it becomes clear that this is no ordinary performance. A conceptual work about losing oneself when all they have is themself, Pad gestures towards an exciting new future for Stevens’ pop moniker by reimagining its own very existence.

Peter Matthew Bauer- Flowers

Peter Matthew Bauer releases his brand new third album, Flowers (out now via Fortune Tellers), along with the focus track and thematic centerpiece, “Chiyoda, Arkansas, Manila.” The final single is described as an abstract portrait of anti-cult researchers Bauer met online, drawing on one in particular’s experience and reactions in the abstract. Set against a wall of arp synthesizers, electric guitars, and Matt Barrick smashing the drums, the song ends with a sound that’s something like a good U2 song being drowned underwater.

Puppy Angst- In Sensitivity

“In Sensitivity” is a super upbeat song about working towards happiness despite struggling with mental health. The song is filled with dreamy, nostalgic guitar tones that get swallowed up by fuzz, wacky vocal processing, a melodic bassline, simultaneous guitar and synth solos… the hook and instrumentation are really fun, despite the lyrics maybe not being the happiest. In sensitivity, there is strength!” -Alyssa Milman
