Kate NV’s next recording, Room for the Moon, will be out on RVNG Intl. on June 12th. The Moscow based artist’s use of minimal grooves has become more fluid, with an assured hand at layering different textures. We have included two teaser tracks via Soundcloud here.
On behalf of Kate NV, a portion of proceeds from this release will benefit Mama Cash, an international fund that supports female-identifying, trans and intersex people’s movements around the world, as a part of our Come! Mend! initiative.
The second collaboration from alt-folk guitarists Bill Mackay & Ryley Walker, SpiderBeetleBee, will be released on October 20th via Drag City. A lovely video below of railway travel in eras past accompanies their song “Lonesome Traveler.” Another track streams, as well as ordering instructions (you will want those), via their Bandcamp page (below).
A new Christmas song from our favorite slowcore Mormons:
“To friends who have moved away and friends who have passed on this year. To one and all, especially those who are alone, we wish you a Merry Christmas and new hope for the new year. May we all find ways to lift each other.
