Each week we post a song from a local artist online for free. This week, it’s “Clarity,” by Clara Kent. The track is a smooth R&B number that details the struggles of a workaholic. The soulful hook calls for clarity, and to be present and honest with oneself.

Each week we post a song from a local artist online for free. This week, it’s “Gary,” by Venus in Furs. The grimy, synth-tinged alternative-rock number oozes longing. It would sound at home in a neon-lit warehouse club full of sweaty bodies.

Each week we post a song from a local artist online for free. This week, it’s “Blue Narcissus,” by Rave Ami, formerly Honey. The new track is a bouncy, fuzzy rock track, with catchy melodies and melancholy lyrics — just the warped juxtaposition that makes Rave Ami shine.

Each week we post a song from a local artist online for free. This week, it’s “No Escape,” by the straight-edge, power-violence act, Rabid Pigs. It’s an aggressive number that brings the slow, beat-down punishment, before briefly giving way to a punk sprint.

Each week we post a song from a local artist online for free. This week, it’s the dynamic, jangly rock tune, “Post Office,” by Distant Futures. It’s a sentimental jaunt about love found and lost, served with a hint of Brit-rock sensibilities.
