It's rare to get a complete audio/visual package in an album, but San Francisco artist Christopher Willits has done just that with Opening.

San Francisco artist Christopher Willits has outdone both himself and many of his contemporaries with Opening, his recently released audio/visual album. Not only did he write a seven-song album, but he also put together a stunning 45-minute visual accompaniment for the music. Says Willits of the artwork, “For years, I’ve imagined the work I do in music, photography, video/film, immersive audio and meditation all coming into one space.” With Opening he has achieved that union quite impressively.

"Sentimentalist", the stunning, emotionally wrenching centerpiece to Sondre Lerche's forthcoming pop masterpiece Please, is available to stream through Brooklyn Vegan.

Coming off of his understated 2011 self-titled LP, Norwegian art pop crooner Sondre Lerche is about to release his boldest and best recording yet, the stunning Please. Known for a quirky, jazz-inflected, and highly accessible pop style, Lerche pulls out all the stops with Please, an album whose heartbreak-centric lyrics is likely informed by his recent divorce.

Fans of rock 'n' roll at its most vintage should give Paul Collins' retro Feel the Noise several listens.

Paul Collins sounds like a guy who not only loves rock ‘n’ roll; he sounds like he’s spent his whole life living it. Feel the Noise, his latest studio effort, captures the spirit of a musician who has grown comfortably into his style. After years of playing in power pop groups like the Nerves and the Beat, Collins has continued to smartly integrate the distorted side of his rock ‘n’ roll with a keen ear for affable hooks.
