This week’s track comes from Laika, The Astro-Hound, a project headed by Johnstown-based musician Sean Jackson. Jackson started writing the new record, Kairos, after his mother passed away three years ago. "Music has been a life-long love for me," he explained in an email, adding that he hopes this record will be relatable to anyone struggling through their own grieving process. Stream or download the piano-driven single "Died at Five" below, or check out the whole record at My Idea of Fun

This Monday's MP3 comes from the band LoFi Delphi, who just released its sophomore EP, Always the Quiet Ones. As our writer Mike Shanley puts it, "LoFi Delphi takes a page from its classic pop influences, meticulously arranging the material to sound more like a group song than a riff with some embellishment." Stream or download the song "Goodbye" from the release, and read more about the band here.
