Monday mashup 2021 (vol 25)

Just when it was getting safe to get back in the water, along comes Delta and threatens to force us all back home. We have been anxiously awaiting a return to normal concerts and hope that we can get past this glitch without having to go back to square one. How about you guys? At any rate, let’s share this week’s new singles and music videos to whet your appetite for new music.

NEW SINGLES

First up this week is the latest from the lead singer of one of our favorite Americana bands, honeyhoney. Suzanne Santo has released her second solo album and it is even better than her first one. Her latest single talks about something we all need, “Mercy,” and tells it in the best possible way. This one is definitely going on repeat.

Next up is the powerful ballad, “Colors Run,” courtesy of Matt Hartke. He continues to amaze us and this well-crafted song is the perfect way to show your support during these trying times. We think you’ll want to hear it again and again.

Our third single comes from Abby Posner, the voice of LA’s LGBTQ community, and is sung with perfect layered harmonies, reminding us of Raining Jane. It may be called “Emergency Use Only,” but we think she wouldn’t mind if you played it every day.

“Silver Arrow Sunday” is the second single from former producer and now artist David Franz. It is a breath of fresh air, with its unique desert rock sound that will truly haunt you. We love it and can’t wait to hear what comes next from this intriguing new artist.

Our final single this week comes from Tucker Wetmore, an artist that sounds as familiar as if he’s been on country radio all his life. He is asking for “Another Shot,” and we truly believes he deserves it. This one could easily be a chart-topper.

NEW MUSIC VIDEOS

If the voice behind our first music video of the week sounds familiar, that’s because he was formerly the lead singer for The Chordaes. His name is Leo Sawikin, and his song is entitled “Row me Away.” We adore his voice and wish him well in his solo career. We think it will be incredibly successful.

Next up is the latest from the always incredible voice of Rachel Lorin. She says she’ll take a bullet for you, even if you pull the “Trigger.” We are willing to join that que. This song belongs in rotation on Top 40 radio.

Our third video will leave you drooling for some of that sweet “Honey.” Carly and the Universe are back and this time around she uses every ounce of her sexuality to hook you. This one is definitely worthy of multiple views.

Blue Elan Records artist Chelsea Williams brings us a desert mirage performance video with her stirring cover of America‘s classic tune, “Sister Golden Hair.” At this point in her career, she could sing the phone book and we’d love it. Thanks for this brilliant new take on a classic hit.

We close out the week with a bittersweet video from LA Americana band Great Willow. The video was shot last May when some of LA’s best Americana bands got together to celebrate the right to perform and hang out with people again. They call it “Together Again,” and we wish we could have been there for this momentous occasion. Hopefully we can all continue this trend.
