New Music – Week of March 25 2024

If your relationship with music runs deep, and you enjoy a playlist that’s just as deep, tune in to 104.7 The Point — Vermont Independent Radio!

Check out new music just added to the playlist:

  • The Marias – “Run Your Mouth”: The Indie pop band from L.A. are known for performing songs in both English and Spanish, as well as infusing their music with elements like jazz percussion, guitar riffs, and horn solos. The band has released two EPs and one album and are getting ready to release their second full-length album, Submarines, May 31st. Lead singer Maria Zardoya says she avoided conflict all the time, and whenever someone wanted to talk about something serious, she’d run and hide. She learned it was a protective mechanism and she didn’t have the capacity to open up. She opens up on this new track.
  • Lake Street Dive – “Good Together”: With roots in Boston, Brooklyn-based band Lake Street Dive, this is the title track of the new album arriving June 21st. The band says there’s a lot to be angry about in the world right now, a lot of pain and rage and divisiveness, but it isn’t sustainable to constantly live in that anger—you need something else to keep you going. They say joy is a great way to sustain yourself, and they want to encourage everyone to stay aware of that. They play Shelburne Museum Sept 19 & 20.
  • Frank Turner – “Girl From The Record Shop”: The English punk and folk singer is getting ready to release his 10th studio album, Undefeated on May 3rd. This is a short little ditty about a chance encounter with a girl in a record shop who left a lasting impression on him. It’s a reflection on the unpredictability of life and the significance of small moments.
  • Michael Marcagi – “Scared To Start”: From Cincinnati Ohio, here’s a new singer-songwriter on the scene (former lead singer with The Heavy Hours). Michael says his new song “Scared to Start” is a song for the adventurers, the travelers, and the people who look forward, without dwelling on the uncertainties of life. He says it’s about taking the risks and putting yourself out of your comfort zone, regardless of what the rest of the world has to say.
