“Working Girl’s Guitar” is perhaps the perfect title for a new single/album from the boppin’ singer/guitarist Rosie Flores, who shows that girls can rock with an axe as good as the boys. On her new album of the same name, Flores handles every guitar part on the record as well a production duties. The title tune may as well be Flores’ bio as she tells the story of her life from the vantage point of her guitar.

In anticipation of the second full length album due in November, The Inner Mansions, Teen Daze has released a new single called “Union”. The song features a performance by Frankie Rose of the Dum Dum Girls and Crystal Stilts. After a quick blast of guitar fuzz, buried vocals float along with a rock backbeat before it all drops out for an acoustic solo. Things slowly build again in a soundscape of shimmering synths until a final wall of decaying notes.
Teen Daze is the project of Vancouver music producer Jamison and two tracks from his first album, All of Us, Together, were recently picked for the PopMatters Summer 2012 New Music Playlist. The dreamy instrumentals “Brooklyn Sunburn” and “Hold” provided the perfect space out vibe to end another playlist. Teen Daze will also be in NYC during the CMJ Music Festival on October 16 at Pianos (Lefse Records Showcase) and October 18 at Glasslands (Force Field PR Showcase).
