2020 release from New York City-based group Misterwives. An intensely personal reflection on growth in unexpected places, Superbloom is a 19-track epic (including five tracks also featured on the group's 2019 EP mini bloom), that marks a moment of major transformation for frontwoman Mandy Lee and her bandmates. Inspired by a trip to California's Antelope Valley to see the superbloom, frontwoman Mandy Lee commented on the track, "Standing amongst the vast and vibrant flowers that weren't supposed to grow in the desert terrain, I was moved by it's beauty and accurate representation of where I was at in life. Just like the flowers, I had grown in unexpected places. After experiencing a not-so-graceful and incredibly turbulent fall to rock bottom, I picked myself up and slowly grew through the pain. I felt an awful lot like these resilient little poppies that came out the other side against all odds - and I think that deserves congratulations."

Once Upon One Time

$10.99

New CD: $10.99 Buy

The new album finds Johny Fisher and Aaron Martin expanding their swinging rock music to encapsulate cosmic orchestral pop, squishy funk, swelling folk rock, and everything in between-shattering any boundaries they'd previously set for themselves. Once Upon One Time is the latest evolution in a creative partnership that dates back to 2016, when Fisher-who'd previously been in a carousel of bands with Martin-grew tired of work as a hired-gun touring musician and made the latter an artistic offer he couldn't refuse: "I went back to Aaron and said, 'Please, start a band with me, I'm dying to,'" he recalls with a laugh. Since then, the duo's released two full-lengths-2017's Love You, Mean It and last year's Tell All Your Friend-that attracted an increasingly rabid fan base and eventually caused the group to be a regular touring act as well. "Okey Dokey has never just been Johny, Jeremy, and I," Martin states. "It takes far more than the three of us to make our records-it takes our family and friends, our team, our video directors, photographers, press agents, our beautiful audience, and our love. We're done just being a band. We're a community now."

mxmtoon, the Oakland-raised, Brooklyn-based artist known as Maia, is back with dusk: the second of two thematically interconnected EPs. If dawn from earlier this year drew from the gentle optimism and hope found in gorgeous sunrise, dusk is a beautiful exploration of the other side of the emotional duality that is the human experience.

dawn & dusk together are at once recalling of mxmtoon’s earlier work while also expanding her sonic horizons more than ever before, an exciting new direction suggesting that the sky is the truly the limit for Maia’s artistry.
