Boston-based singer/songcrafter Mark Erelli has unveiled a live performance video of “I Can't Stand Myself,” a new track off his LP Blindsided, due out via Soundly Music next Friday, March 27th. The track pairs a Bo Diddly beat with an exploration of faith and doubt. “We value faith highly in America, and there is an overarching feeling that you have to believe in something. But doubt can be as powerful as a locomotive, and on this song, I tie myself to the tracks,” Erelli explains of “I Can't Stand Myself. “I've always thought of myself as a good person, but if that is true, then why do I occasionally let people down or hurt them?” “'I Can't Stand Myself' comes out swinging with a jangly piano riff, then leads into Erelli's distinctive vocals,” says The Boot in its premiere of the video, which features Erelli along with Jake Armerding on fiddle.

And perhaps most acutely, the practice of music has taught Erelli the beauty of sublimation and reinforced the joy of helping others achieve their dreams, which, in turn, helps Erelli also achieve his.” 'A Little Kindness' was penned in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting and Tom Petty's passing. “The night Tom Petty died, I was scrolling through social media looking to commiserate with fellow fans,” Erelli explains. “Singer/songwriter Joe Pug suggested that the best way to celebrate Petty's legacy would be to stop mourning and go write a song. I know good advice when I see it, and wrote this song in one sitting.”

Chicago's Post Animal will release their remarkable sophomore album Forward Motion Godyssey next week on Polyvinyl, and today they share one more single before it drops. Showcasing the band's ability to craft an epic slowburner that seamlessly blends synth-pop with their psych-inspired prog sound, the expansive “How Do You Feel” is out now alongside a Pooneh Ghana-directed music video. The band says the track “explores the confusion and eventual acceptance of complicated emotions,' and it follows the previously released “Safe Or Not”, “Schedule,” and “Fitness,” which have already received support from the likes of The FADER, NPR Music, Billboard, and many more. Ghana says the video “presents a story of having a dream, and the ups and downs of chasing it, but never giving up on it. It touches on the ideas of sheer ambition, self reflection, nostalgia, growing older, and how one may decide to approach their life in result of all this. It's an epic internal journey—a godyssey, even!—for our main character, who wouldn't and couldn't do anything else with her life, even if it is a struggle, at times.”
