Amy O

Indiana-based Amy O’s (Amy Oelsner) “Elastic” is justly titled owing to the artist’s penchant for out of the ordinary song structures, changes in pace (moving from opening track “Lavender” to “Soft Skin” or “History Walking to “Sunday Meal”, for example) and melodies. The twelve track album is a quick listen with only two tracks (“Cherry Blossom” and “Spill”) running over three minutes. But, the briskness of the album along with the changes in tension and mobility moving track-to-track and the melodic relationships are what makes this debut album work. Oh, it’s a fair bet that there’s a hook or two that will stick in your head. “Elastic” is a worthy debut.

Seasoned musicians Stefanie Drootin and her husband, Chris Senseney, have released “Double Worshipper” offering up an irresistible eight-track indie rock journey. The album opens up with “Black Summer”; a driving rock guitar intro to the duo’s congruous vocals. Experientially, there’s a lulling psych thread that really works in the sense that it’s difficult not to feel contented. That’s not to say the album is in anyway gooey as it most certainly kicks with tracks such as the fuzzy “I’m In Love” and the fast, upbeat “Idiot Child”. In short, “Double Worshipper” stands up lyrically and compositionally making it an exceptional debut for Umm.

Cherry Glazerr brings on great post-punk/indie noise pop with this latest release “Apocalipstick”. Clementine Creevy heads up the band along with drummer Hannah Uribe , vocalist Sophia Muller and bassist Sean Redman. “Told You I’d Be With The Guys” is an stand-out track along with “Nuclear Bomb” (the video features Creevy having an interesting, however bizzare) relationship with her Rickenbacker https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3Pnr3S10yA
