The Mercy Beat – “An Act of Mercy” [stream]
The mysterious trio from Los Angeles release their second single, and it’s even better than their first, “Sweet”. Stay tuned…there will be more soon.
Maybug – “Slipping Gears” [stream]
Emotive and poignant are the words that first come to mind when hearing Maybug’s first single, “An Act of Mercy”. The song was written at a time of personal failure, and became the impetus for Joseph AKA Maybug to play, travel and write. It was ostensibly a cathartic process.
Electric Strawberry – “Light of the Day” [stream]
This Bay Area quartet fuses blues and psychedelic rock. Briana Gokay channels Grace Slick circa 1967 on “Light of Day”, which is essentially a ‘tease’. It ends and you find yourself wanting more, more, more. Download “Light of Day” for free on Bandcamp.
