Recorded live in one take, the bubbly “Goodbye Temporarily” set the tone for Far Cries and Close Calls, the forthcoming album from Oklahoma singer/songwriter John Calvin Abney. Decamping to Little Rock, Arkansas, to record his latest LP, Abney notes of the lead single, “It was the first song approached when entering the studio, and gave the entire space, along with those involved, a calm yet energetic sense that we were going to create something glowing and real.”

I received a press release this week, the subject line of which read: “This War of Mine Creators Unveil Their New Game – FrostPunk”. What followed was the standard stuff that appears in game press releases, a link to a press kit to download, a link to the game’s first trailer, and a few very brief paragraphs describing the game.
Now, it isn’t my normal practice to do much with initial press releases for games, other than file them in my e-mail to really take a look at when the game is closer to release and I might need to contact someone about getting a review copy for one of our writers. However, this press release had me at “This War of Mine Creators”. I played This War of Mine on its release in 2014, and, I mean, I played a lot of This War of Mine. It was one of my favorite games of that year.
Rochester, New York pop/rock singer-songwriter Adam Clark is back again, and this time with a brand new collaboration alongside Dutch electronic recording artist Anthony Dircson (Reepublic Records). Clark and Dircson’s first work together comes along in the form of a remix of the former’s initial debut single following his team-up with multi-platinum selling, Grammy-nominated producer David Schuler (P!nk, John Legend, Daughtry), “King of the Sky”.
Toronto dream pop artist Rosemary Fairweather hasn’t released an album yet, but she’s been turning heads with a batch of singles premiering on the hipper side of the musical internet. It’s easy to see why as her warm, ethereal sound is mesmerizing. On “I Wasn’t There”, gentle chords welcome you as the sound opens up to Fairweather’s lovely high soprano voice mourning the end of a relationship. Languid beats and warm synth washes carry the song to greater heights. Fairweather says, “this song is personal to me, but I hope people can take something away from it.” Indeed, we do as Fairweather has created a memorable song here and we eagerly await her debut full-length release, Heavenly - A Collection of Songs, coming in late fall.
