Grace Potter, The Record Company, Soda Blonde, Beach Riot, Jon Batiste now in our New Music bin

Grace Potter: Good Time

The Vermont native references the Montreal airport as a jumping-off point for adventure in this single from her forthcoming LP, Mother Road. "When I was writing ‘Good Time,’ I was thinking about all the times when there were no boundaries between me and the world at large,” Potter says. “As you get older, there’s this expectation that you need to fall in line, that you can’t keep living a fantasy your whole life. But I don’t know about that - maybe we can."

The Record Company: Talk to Me

With this new single comes word of an album coming sometime this fall from the LA-based trio. "We used the same junky yard-sale drum set heard on our earliest recordings" on this track, says bassist Alex Stiff. "When the question came up later whether to re-record the song in a more professional studio setting, we voted that the original spirit was more important than polish, and we left that groove intact. A lot of the album follows this same vision.”

Soda Blonde: Bad Machine

The Dublin-based band will release its sophomore album, Dream Big, in September. Of this lead single, guitarist Adam O’Regan says: “This idea that ‘every part of me is a bad machine breaking everything all the time, every part of me has been wired to repeat, I’ve got a bad desire by design,’ it’s this idea of recognizing that this is just a part of who you are and going with that."

Beach Riot: Tell Me I'm Wrong

Here's the second single to emerge from the Brighton-based "fuzz-pop band" since their 2021 debut album, Subatomic Party Cool. "All we wanna do is take this song onto the stage and be the soundtrack to people’s summer," says the band.

Jon Batiste: Calling Your Name

Here's another single that signifies an upcoming LP release. World Music Radio will arrive in August as the follow-up to Batiste's 2021 Grammy winner, We Are. He describes it as "a concept album that takes place in the interstellar regions of the universe."
