Discography


Esther Rose - My Favorite Mistakes

May 29, 2020 · Father/Daughter Records · FD-089

On her new EP, My Favorite Mistakes, Esther Rose Rose and her band cover a selection of downer anthems close to her heart. Recorded live over three days, it includes songs written by Sheryl Crow, Nick Lowe, Roy Orbison, and, of course, Hank Williams. “When I was starting out on my guitar playing/songwriting path,” Rose says, “I would listen to Hank Williams on my headphones and walk for miles and miles across town and back. Hank is one of the best teachers I've had when it comes to writing simply and directly, with humor and sincerity.” Through these performances, Rose sings not only in tribute to her heroes but also in deep, intimate conversation with them, traveling their lonesome highways to find her own new destinations.

Christelle Bofale - Miles

February 20, 2020 · FD-088

“Miles” is the latest offering from Austin, TX-based songwriter Christelle Bofale. The expansive track spotlights her rich, soulful vocals, backed by a web of pillowy bass, guitar, and keys. Bofale wrote “Miles” while in high school. Looking out the window during English class, she observed how each car was using up the same miles, driving the same roads, yet the destination and lives of the drivers were all completely different. Bofale related to the aimless commuters as she was also on a journey, feeling pressured to map out her post-high school life at 17. Christelle Bofale made a splash in 2019 with the release of her debut, ‘Swim Team’, a five song offering inspired by her rich Congolese heritage infused with elements of indie rock, soul, and jazz.

Sir Babygirl - Crush on Me: BICONIC Edition

November 8, 2019 · FD-087

Diet Cig - Swear I’m Good At This

April 7, 2017 · FD-055


"Their twee stylings could easily become sickly sweet to a fault if mishandled, but Luciano’s honeyed voice makes the sentimental songwriting relatable.

Rose Droll - Your Dog

November 16, 2018 · FD-077


"...it's full of these wonderful thickets of ideas—a little bit of 70s singer-songwriter tropes here, a little minimal jazz there, a synth-marimba (or glockenspiel or something) that pops up for a tiny melody and then drops away." - Noisey

     

Tasha - Alone at Last

October 26, 2018 · FD-078
