    • Henry Carrigan

    Robby Hecht is releasing a gorgeous and poignant orchestral version of "The Ends and the Means," just when we need it most. Ben Plotnick’s violin and viola and Kaitlyn Raitz’s cello introduce the song with soaring walls of sound that lay the somber foundation for Hecht’s luminous storytelling and searching meditations on human nature and its foibles.

    • Henry Carrigan

    Amanda Anne Platt & the Honeycutters’ gorgeous new song, “Desert Flowers,” washes over us in cascading waves of sound that evoke aching loneliness, yearning hope, hungry nostalgia, and pining for life on the road. The exquisite poetry and sonic splendor of the song lingers and resonates in the soul long after the last note fades

    Tice’s quiet sparse video of “Walkin’,” which appears on his new album Motivational Speakeasy, out September 25, captures the spirit of a man with rambling on his mind.
