Each week, we post a song from a local artist online for free. This week’s track is “Smooth,” the latest from relatively new R&B artist/singer/songwriter Sierra Sellers. The track, produced by Gambi and Sellers, follows an equally fresh and impressive self-titled EP released earlier this year, so hopefully there’s a full length on the way.

Each week, we post a song from a local artist online for free. This week’s track is Livefromthecity’s "Swim,” featuring his trademark melodic flow and a sick 80s synth hook (think John Carpenter scores, or It Follows for the youngsters).

Each week, we post a song from a local artist online for free. This week, it’s the closing track from The Velcro Shoes’ new album All That You Are (album release show at Brillobox on August 12). “Times Are Different” is a smart, percussion-driven track from this indie-rock four piece, that only clocks in at a little over four minutes but feels unexpectedly epic. Stream or download “Times Are Different” below.

Each week, we post a song from a local artist online for free. This week, it's a XOMwonderful remix Moon Baby's "Tip of the Tongue." Moon Baby's new album, Barbara, is set for release this fall and we’ve already heard the excellent debut single “Pumps by the Pool” (song of the summer?). There’s a lot to look forward to, but today we’re looking back, with a remix of “Tip of the Tongue,” from the 2016 album Hollywood Killed Tara Reid.  Stream or download “Tip of my Tongue (remix)” below and keep an eye out for Barbara.

Each week, we post a song from a local artist online for free. This week, it’s a track from Blød Maud’s latest EP, Mädel. “Peppermints” is a haunting, bass-heavy post-punk track with ghostly harmonies and driving percussion. It drifts between suspenseful sparseness and energetic instrumentals, building bridges that swell into a sinister jam burning it all down. Stream or download “Peppermints” below.

Each week, we post a song from a local artist online for free. This week, it’s a hypnotic, meandering track from Astra Robotica called “Android,” from June's Android EP. This is minimalist electronic music for people who prefer slow and steady to the melodramatic drops of EDM. Also, if you’re averse to bells, stay far away from this one. Stream or download “Android" below.

This week's MP3 is “Rest” from The Petals' new album Meld (out on Friday). The guitar-driven songwriting and hard-soft dynamics have a distinct 90s feel, but there’s also something pleasantly off-kilter and hard to describe going on here, which could describe most of this foursome’s output. Stream or download “Rest" below.

Each week, we post a song from a local artist online for free. This week, it’s new music from LEFTFIELD, the highly skilled MC/producer duo of Reason and DOC LVLY. “Agency,” featuring LKHD and Rhetorical Artz, serves as a good introduction to their earnest, old school mentality and crisp, smart production. The album is Learned Process. Go find it. Stream or download “Agency" below.

COVER ART BY PETE JOHNSON

Each week, we post a song from a local artist online for free. This week, it’s “Tchoupitoulas,” from Glo Phase’s Halftone. That title (pronounced “chop-it-too-las”) references to a street in New Orleans, where much of the album was written over a month last winter. Words like hip hop, IDM and chillwave might work to describe it, but the album art (above) does it much better. Stream or download "Tchoupitoulas" below.
