New Music from Sleater-Kinney, Soda Blonde, Night Talks, J Mascis, Sarah Jarosz

Sleater-Kinney: Say It Like You Mean It

Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein will release their latest album, Little Rope, in January. Tucker takes the lead vocal on this single about parting words: "Say it like you mean it / I need to hear it before you go."  

J Mascis: Can't Believe We're Here

Here's a taste of What Do We Do Now, the upcoming fifth solo album by the Dinosaur Jr. frontman. Word is he played all the instruments except keyboards, provided by Ken Mauri from the B-52’s, and pedal steel, by Ontario's Matthew “Doc” Dunn. “When I’m writing for the band,” Mascis says, “I’m always trying to think of doing things Lou and Murph would fit into. For myself, I’m thinking more about what I can do with just an acoustic guitar, even for the leads. Of course, this time, I added full drums and electric leads, so it ended up sounding a lot more like a band record.”

Night Talks: Running On A Cloud

The latest single from this LA trio is inspired by the old Roadrunner cartoons. "There’d always be a moment where Wile. E Coyote would cut off a tree branch he was sitting on or run off the side of a cliff, so focused on what he was doing that he wouldn’t fall down until he stopped to think."

Soda Blonde: Boys

This Irish band spins out another single from its recently released second album, Dream Big, as it embarks on a tour around Europe. The Irish Times says the song is "laced with romantic ambiguity, in lines like, 'Somebody’s been yelling in my head that you’re the wrong one.'"

Sarah Jarosz: When The Lights Go Out

On her upcoming seventh album, Polaroid Lovers, Jarosz says each song "is a snapshot of different love stories. This one is about being intrigued before the start of a relationship…dreaming about the unknown of it all." It's a co-write with Jon Randall and Gordie Sampson. "Gordie, who comes from a Cape Breton musical background, suggested we write something in 6/8, started grooving, and before we knew it we were off and running."
