This week’s MP3 Monday is “Home/You” by SOFT GIRL. It's a sweetly nostalgic slow-burner in what a dumb writer might call the “indie rock” realm. If that sounds like your cup of tea, don’t miss their Softgirl. EP, out now on Bandcamp. Stream or download "Home/You" for free below if you know what's good for you.

Each week, we post a song from a local artist, for free online. This week, it’s Pittsburgh-style honky-tonk from Cledus and the Cadillacs. The best way to describe the band’s sound? Take Dwight Yoakam’s “Guitars, Cadillacs,” a touch of George Jones’ “Your Heart Turned Left,” a dash of Dave Dudley’s “Six Days on the Road” and a splash of blues guitar, and you’re in the ballpark. The band’s “Lonely Night in Texas” is a nice intro to its sound. Stream here or download below.

Okay, people who like minimalist post-rock, sludge, drone metal and repetition, The Long Hunt's debut is going to make you happy. Wilderness Tales is built on sparse guitar lines on the surface, but anyone who's spent any time with Earth or Sleep or OM will recognize the heavier — if less distorted — nuances in each composition. The band is a guitar-bass-drums three-piece, the album is out on Feb. 17 and this week's MP3 Monday is the seven-minute "Valley of the Sun." Listen/download below and keep an eye out for when these folks hit the road (play concerts).

This week's MP3 Monday is taking us to church with the local chiptune artist Marissa Hapeman. "Big Bad Crush" is the opener — I promise I listen to whole albums, I just appreciate a good track one — from Hapeman's latest, Solstice EP. It's delightful. Get the whole album if you know what's good for you but if you don't, I guess just stream or download "Big Bad Crush" here in the meantime.

This week's MP3 Monday is the opening track from Choo Jackson's latest, Choo, Where U Goin'? If you don't know Choo, "Camo" is a good introduction to his introspective, sardonic lyricism. This album is a beast. Start with streaming/downloading "Camo" right here, then check out his earlier output on his Soundcloud and keep an eye on him in 2017.

This week's MP3 Monday is the slow-burning "Pico and Grand" from Ancient History's sophomore record, Good Friend Electrical.

This week's MP3 Monday is Violet Rose's "Repeat," a cool, sleekly produced pop song that's hard to shake. Rose is relocating to Los Angeles at some point in 2017, but you can still catch her last show as a Pittsburgh resident at Brillobox on Jan. 12. Stream or download "Repeat" below.
