Stream Falcon Jane’s ‘The News’ for Free

Falcon Jane, aka Sara May, had this to say about her track ‘The News’ in an e-mail; “’The News’ is about losing someone you love and trying to find them amidst the dense, emotional fog of grief. I hope it can help aid those who are grieving by reflecting some of the complicated emotions we are feeling.”

She offered a free stream of the track, taken from her latest album Feelin’ Freaky, out now.

The severe flooding that affected her community Southwestern Ontario also inspired the track, particularly a young child who was washed out of his mother’s arms. May and her partner had driven through the area just a few hours before the tragedy struck. She noted that there were a lot of parallels between the child’s death and ‘The News’.

When the next flood hit, May tried to capture when she and the community had been feeling.

“Water can be powerful and destructive, beautiful and cleansing. Its constant flow reminds us to keep moving forward – yet we are at the mercy of the current, the rainfall, and the floods,” she wrote.

Catch Falcon Jane on the following dates;

June 1 – Maggiolly’s – Orangeville Blues and Jazz Festival, ON

June 2 – Vibes in the Valley – Mulmur, ON

June 15 – Hillsburgh Library Opening, ON

Stream Femdot’s ‘Ryu’ for Free

Femdot has shared a free stream of ‘Ryu’ from his debut album Delacreme 2, out on June 6 via Closed Sessions.

“The root of who you are can be explained through a collection of moments in your life. These not only define you, but are used when one needs reassurance of what it means to be themselves, at the core,” he said in a statement. “That’s what Delacreme 2 is. By using defining moments in my life and keeping them in a place in my heart that I can access if I need to, I created a time capsule of sorts inside of me. So here’s that process on wax.”
‘Ryu’ follows the video for ‘Alright’ from Delacreme 2.
The Chicago-based artist is a first generation Nigerian and graduated from Depaul University’s Biological Sciences program.

Stream Declan O’Donovan’s ‘Hank’ & Let it Rain (Reprise)’ for Free

Declan O’Donovan said that his song ‘Hank’ is loosely based on an urban legend about a promiscuous Hank Williams the he wove into a narrative about a childhood friend.

It was written separate from the sessions for his 2017 album Broken Sky.

“’Hank’ has lived as a black sheep of sorts in my live repertoire for a couple of years without garnering an official studio release until now,” O’Donovan said in an e-mail.

The other track he’s shared a free stream of, ‘Let It Rain (Reprise)’, is a reiteration of the opening track from his last outing.

“This alternate version is lyrically identical, yet musically and conceptually an entirely different piece than the original,” he said. “On Broken Sky, I explored themes of contrast and counterpoint in both my lyrics and in the record’s production. This recording of ‘Let It Rain (Reprise)’ is the final counterpoint to this collection of songs, offering up a dark and somewhat bruised take.”
