Adam Schlesinger was a prodigious and prolific songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist. He died on April 1 at the age of 52 as the result of complications from COVID-19. Not only was Schlesinger in multiple beloved bands—including the power-pop-leaning Fountains of Wayne and sophisticated electro-pop act Ivy—but he also collaborated on songs for movie soundtracks and the TV show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

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.

“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.

"Their twee stylings could easily become sickly sweet to a fault if mishandled, but Luciano’s honeyed voice makes the sentimental songwriting relatable. The rickety guitar lines and Noah Bowman’s efficient drumming help carry the song’s playful pop melody. As of yet, Diet Cig show no signs of growing pains." - Pitchfork

“Milky Milk” is the new single from Dama Scout, the eclectic trio from London fronted by Eva Liu (vocals, guitar), joined by childhood friends Luciano Rossi (bass, keys) and Danny Grant (drums). Established in Glasgow, the band draw their name, in part, from the protagonist of Harper Lee’s ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ prefixed by ‘Dama’, meaning woman or deer. “Milky Milk” takes cues from the band’s influences of Can and Francois Hardy, creating an elastic performance, building tension through the push and pull of dynamics and tempo - culminating in the relief of the euphoric end section.
