New Rubblebucket, Future Islands, Adult Leisure, Madison Cunningham, Adrian Sutherland

Rubblebucket: Teardrops

It's been about a year since the Brooklyn band's Earth Worship LP, and as they launch a fall tour they've released a new single. 

This time Alex Tōth takes on the lead vocal while Kalmia Traver provides harmonies. 

Flood Magazine calls it a "delirious synth-pop banger" featuring "vocoded vocals, funk-inspired bass, and warm synth beds."

Future Islands: The Tower

With the release of this single, the Baltimore band announced it has an LP coming early next year, called People Who Aren't There Anymore. Stereogum says this advance track is "a soft, haunted synth-rock jam with a buzzing low-end, and it makes lovely use of Samuel T. Herring’s singular voice."

Adult Leisure: All For You

We're catching up with this "melodic alt-indie" band - which formed during the pandemic and released its first EP in late 2022 - as they prepare to issue their second, Present State of Joy and Grief. Due in a matter of days, its four tracks will include this single that the group describes as a story of "a fragmented bond, infidelity and loss. ... Every moment of heartbreak captured across 4 minutes.”

Madison Cunningham: Subtitles

A little over a year after releasing her third album, Revealer - and as she tours with the U.S. opening for Hozier - the Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter has dropped this fresh single.

Cunningham she says it's "set at the end of the world where there’s this impending disaster that is quickly approaching, and everyone has been warned, yet the people below still bobble around going on and on bickering about human things, misunderstanding each other." 

Listen and then watch (or re-watch) the 2021 film Don't Look Up.

Adrian Sutherland: Diamonds

This roots-rocker from Canada's Far North has rolled out a pair of singles whose titles add up to that of his second solo LP, Precious Diamonds, to be released in March. The publicity for the release says "the idea that people came from the sky up above and were made from the sun was not only fun to explore lyrically, but is also a belief rooted in Adrian Sutherland's First Nation/Cree culture." Sutherland, formerly of the band Midnight Shine, traveled to Nashville to record the album with producer/musician Colin Linden, a fellow Canadian.
