ALL ALBUMS/EPS SUBMITTED AND
DISCOVERED VIA MUSOSOUP
1.- Kiirstin Marilyn, a NY-based singer-songwriter and actress, unveils her new album “Kristoffer” on November 10th. The release, titled after her dear eldest brother gone far too soon, gazes deep into the memories, love, pain, and grief as she tells the story of Kristoffer. It’s a gentle, profound tribute to a man forever a boy battling with his demons of mental illness and addiction.
2.- This is a desperate cry from a place of deep silence. On her second studio album “Nothing Sweeter“, Canada’s best-kept secret Julie Arsenault sings about topics like depression, social awkwardness, and sexism with heart-wrenching rawness and tender honesty. It was recorded during a couple of chilly Canadian winter days. This is slow music that grows on you.
3.- Inspired by graphic designer and director John Koenig’s project The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, “Sonder” is a musical description of certain emotions, which have not yet acquired a name, and is based on the idea that we feel much more than we can express. It consists of 5 tracks, which deal with 5 emotions so specific that our language does not yet have the words to contain them. One of them is sonder (the momentary realization that every random passer-by lives a life as vivid and complex as yours), which is also the title of the record by Electric Litany.
4.- Maryland-based singer-songwriter Jen Hawley‘s latest full-length release “Fragile” paints ten musical portraits of grief without losing sight of our hopes and longings. The songs reflect not only Jen’s journey through the grieving process, but also the unique stories of her friends, family members, and neighbors who have also gone through their own difficult losses.
5.- Lucy Crips in her own words: “65 Roses has always been another way for people to remember Cystic Fibrosis. This project acts as an introduction to myself and a true reflection of the challenges I face physically and mentally in my day-to-day life. I dedicate this EP to Claire Wineland, who was an inspiration to many people, like myself, with Cystic Fibrosis. She always loved to sing and I hope to carry her legacy throughout my music.”
6.- Chantal Celine is a Canadian singer/songwriter and indie producer based in Gatineau, Québec. Her music pairs whimsical lyrics with a blend of acoustic and electronic elements. She writes about life and love and uses her songs to explore thoughts and feelings in a tangible way, creating a snapshot in time that she can step back into. Chantal writes, records, and produces all of her music, ensuring that each song is authentically hers.
Chantal Celine newest EP, “sad, but not really”, is a small collection of sad(ish) songs, each with a unique silver lining. It features songs about love – pulling back the curtain to reveal the emotions and inner workings of relationships, and songs about life – feeling lost and directionless while struggling to find a sense of identity and purpose.
7.- Strangelily, and their latest 5-track EP, “A Strange Film, Featuring You and I. The band continues to push boundaries, delving deeper into the complexities of life and our attempts to find meaning within it. This EP features five distinct tracks, each a cinematic masterpiece in its own right—from the sultry, neo-jazzy sounds of “Ab (Chaos Is Bliss)”, to the raw, emotionally charged anthems like “Monster Under The Bed” and “Hour Of The Star”.
8.- Twayn are twins, Hannah and Grace, who were born and raised in the North East of England. The debut EP from Twayn, ‘Cupid Isn’t Real’, tells the story of two separate relationships and breakups, and the struggles and thoughts throughout both. This EP delivers everything you’d expect from Twayn and lots more as the twins’ sound develops from gentle ballads to more complex, mature sounds of which some are pop/rock in genre.
9.- Beatdenker in his own words “Stuff Is Happening (Within A Beatdenker’s Day, Haha) is made within one day. It combines two ways of music producing. First part are improvised rhythms recorded with a simple mic and thrown throuth some granulisers. Second part consists of instantly designed Beats with improvised melodies, basslines and chrods. Everything sprouted out of a hyper flow combined with some self-imposed time pressure and endless fun, yippie.”
