“The seed of 'I Saw Love' started from a memory of a bassline of an Arthur Russell song. As I constructed the song, it became a story of moods, rather than words, like passing through a haunted funhouse of mirrors, traveling from optimism to triumph, despair, and ecstasy,” explains NYC-based indie electro pop artist Michael Tapper of Practice to American Songwriter (who yesterday premiered the single/video). “I Saw Love” is the second single off his debut album Not A Game (out in early 2021).

Ahead of the release of his debut album Before You Begin next  month, Sequoyah Murray has shared the otherworldly video for new single 'Blue Jays'. Written as an attempt to capture an 'abstract sense of beauty', as he puts it, Murray's alluring baritone glides over sub-zero synthesisers, before the track erupts into hypnotic polyrhythms. Directed by close friend and filmmaker Lev Omelchenko and performed by Sequoyah and his younger brother, the video for the track tells the story of a winged figure who appears to a young boy in a dream and then again in reality, awakening the dancer within.

by BWW News Desk - May 28, 2019

Banhart emerged seemingly out of nowhere in 2002 with his first CD collection, Oh Me Oh My…The Way the Day Goes By the Sun Is Setting Dogs Are Dreaming Lovesongs of the Christmas Spirit, compiled by Swans frontman Michael Gira for his Young God label from homemade recordings the itinerant Banhart had amassed as he traveled the world. He was born Devendra Obi Banhart in Houston, Texas, but spent his childhood in Caracas, Venezuela; as a teenager, his family returned to the States, relocating in Southern California, where he soon became enamored of skateboard culture. "Ballad of Keenan Milton," in fact, is an homage to the legendary skateboarder, who died tragically in 2001 in a freak accident.

Ligia Lewis WATER WILL (IN MELODY) and MINOR MATTER Announced At Performance Space Ne Photo Ligia Lewis WATER WILL (IN MELODY) and MINOR MATTER Announced At Performance Space New York
by BWW News Desk - Apr 3, 2019

Performance Space New York concludes its No Series with two performances by Ligia Lewis: minor matter (May 21-22)and Water Will (in Melody) (May 28-29), the latter two installments in her BLUE RED WHITE trilogy interrogating and complicating certain types of embodiment in relationship to the frame of the theater-and particularly the black box-space. The trilogy began with Sorrow Swag in blue and continued with minor matter in red; its conclusion, the U.S. premiere performance Water Will (in Melody), is a melodrama in black and white. Through her use of color, embodiment, and dramaturgical unruliness, Lewis twists ingrained symbols of the body and the theater with playful abandon. Resisting the tyranny of transparency and representationalism, she hopes to carve out a space for opacity and the state of not knowing.

by BWW News Desk - Mar 7, 2019

Kindness, a.k.a. Adam Bainbridge, makes a highly anticipated return to their own music with “Cry Everything,” featuring a duet with longtime collaborator and friend,Robyn. Centered around thumping bass and a swirling sample of Todd Rundgren's “Pretending to Care,” “Cry Everything” is an intricate, optimistic ode to stepping into the light and loving yourself after a particularly dark period. Pulling energy from queer, vocal house music and self-empowering funk, “Cry Everything” is the feeling of exhaling after years of holding it in, of total catharsis, of forgetting everything that came before.
