Rebekah Todd – “Roots Bury Deep“
from Roots Bury Deep
out 18 February 2014
We’ve been waiting for this single to drop, and Rebekah just announced it in a tweet today. The Greenville-based singer-songwriter is now backed by a jazzy little outfit with horns and a rhythm section. Rebekah always knocked us out with her powerfully soulful voice, but the band adds a depth and resonance that is spine tingling. Follow her on Facebook for more details.

Jargon Party – “Lucy Melanie” [free download]
from Jargon Party
released 24 May 2013
Based in Brooklyn, Jargon Party is led by Zach Lewis. “Lucy Melanie” recalls those early Beatles’ days. There’s plenty of chirpy, jangly guitars, and around the 2:00 mark the song turns psychedelic, as if Jim Morrison went garage. Check out more here. Their self-titled debut is available through iTunes.
