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.”

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.

From twangy civil war chimes to modern songs of protest, love, and sadness set across both acoustic and electric soundscapes, the American folk scene’s makeup has changed drastically since laying its foundations back in revolutionary times.
