New and varied sounds added to our mix

Bern & The Brights
We pick up on new music in various ways. Record companies send out promotional copies. Artists promote themselves through social media. We read reviews and follow music news. But our favorite way to discover music is in person.

Last week we checked out a multi-band show at a new performance space in our home state of New Jersey - the Old Mogul Theatre in Montclair. One of the acts was locally based dream-pop duo Bern & The Brights. They've been making and releasing music - and picking up critical acclaim - since 2008. Their latest release is a 5-track collection called Heart Wide Open. From it, we've added "Beautiful Morning" to our New Releases bin. You'll also hear other cuts from their catalog popping up in our big mix.

Also added to our New Releases list this week:
Haelos
  • London electronic-pop trio Haelos with "Dust," from their just-released debut album, "Full Circle."
  • "Fire" by British indie artist Barns Courtney, whose career has taken off suddenly since the song was picked for the soundtrack of the movie "Burnt."
  • Another track from Wynonna & The Big Noise's self-titled debut: "Ain't No Thing," featuring Susan Tedeschi. Two powerful voices on a fine bluesy rocker.
  • From New York "post-power pop" band The Chordaes, "Get the Feeling," the first single from their forthcoming debut album.
