When Los Angeles’ Sarah Negahdari isn’t fronting The Happy Hollows, she has another project under the moniker Pisces. It serves as an outlet for songs that don’t necessarily fit the mold for the Hollows and has more of a psych-folk vibe about it. One of her songs “Being With You” received the visual treatment capturing the fading warmth of summer full of washed out colors and underwater fun with LA serving as the backdrop. Watch it below.

London trio of Georgia, Chalin & Cherish, aka JUCE have really made a splash for us in 2014. With previous songs “Call You Out” and “(H)ours” to their credit, they recently released maybe our favorite song from them to date with the “Burning Up”. The song is sort of a tribute to their home city of London and all of the vibrant energy that happens in the summertime. The video for it shows this energy floating around the city capturing the diversity and vibrancy you encounter during the warm months. The track will appear on their upcoming release Taste The JUCE! slated for sometime in the very near future. Watch below.

On September 9th, JMSN’s White Room Records will be dropping a new LP for a project called Pearl. Beyond the tracklist that lists a talented array of singers that include Alcordo, Lauren Faith, Wynter Gordon, Niia, Channy Leaneagh of POLIÇA, and JMSN himself, we don’t know much more about it. Our only guess is it is a side project of JMSN, but who knows. We have heard “I Know” featuring the previously mentioned Alcordo, now we get this soft gem “Not Enough” featuring Niia, who sings two songs on the album. Stream it below.

1. Dreams
2. Too Much (Niia)
3. Not Enough (Niia)
4. I Know (Alcordo)
5. Lie & Cheat (Lauren Faith)
6. Never Comin’ Back (Wynter Gordon)
7. On Your Mind (Nylo)
8. Daily (Yasmin)
9. Holy Water (JMSN)
10. Said (Channy Leaneagh of POLIÇA)

Austin garage rock duo The Ghost Wolves released their LP, Man, Woman, Beast earlier this year via Plowboy Records. Comprised of Carley and Jonathan Wolf, they follow in the steps of many other bands previously who create music and happen to be married. The describe themselves as “stomp and roll” and sound like a grittier and scuzzy version of the B-52’s that would not be out of place in a Tarantino flick. They have a new video for their latest single “Shotgun Pistol Grip” and it is everything you would expect it to be. Wolf masks, coffins, evil priests all on scorched film in Austin, TX. Like we said, Tarantino flick. Watch below.

It is being dubbed their official introduction to the music world and will be packaged with b-side “Heaven Ain’t High”. Comprised of songwriter, producer and vocalist Jack Durtnall as well as vocalist Emily Harvey, the duo explores more of a natural balance between traditional instrumentation and electronics.
