New Stuff from Winter and Dirty Fences

Dirty Fences recruited Christina Halladay of Sheer Mag for their latest single.

Post for a Tuesday

Hey, I'm sorry if it's been kind of quiet here. I'm still not feeling it 100% I guess. Some days are harder than others; and a boring, quiet Tuesday is one of the tough ones. If you've sent me something or tried to get in touch, I apologize for being a little slow. I guess working alone and at home affords me the luxury (Is it a luxury, though?) of not really having to get anything done if I don't feel like it, and that's dragged on for a little longer than I would have liked. Everything in its own time, I suppose. Also, sorry if I sound like a broken record with all of this. Thanks for bearing with me.


While digging through my emails today, I came across a couple of things right at the top that caught my attention (See, that's what happens. I try to play catch-up, but interesting stuff keeps rolling in...)

Winter and Trabants, "Just Stay"

Winter is the dream-pop project of LA via Brazil singer / songwriter, Samira Winter. The band, which also includes Justine Brown, Chelsea Brown, and Anders LaSource, just finished up a stint at the Desert Daze festival in California and, today, released the video for single "Just Stay" featuring LA surf band, Trabants.

I came across this one in just the last hour; and it has that surfy, reverby, shogaze vibe I always love mixed in with a little bit of one of my other great obsessions, twee pop.

"Winter aspires to connect others with their inner child by making blissful, beautiful and ethereal pop music," says the band's Facebook page. I'm not sure about that inner child part; but I'm all in with the blissful, beautiful, and ethereal stuff.

Dirty Fences ft. Christina Halladay (Sheer Mag), "One More Step"

And in a totally different vein, we have the latest single from New York's Dirty Fences whose Goodbye Love comes out on 10/27 via Greenway Records. On "One More Step," Sheer Mag's Christina Halladay duets with Dirty Fences bass player Max Comaskey.

The result is a retro and soulful 50s-influenced ballad. If you went to some super-cool, gritty, rock and roll high school, this could very well have been the big slow dance number at your senior prom.

Dirty Fences, a relentless touring machine, are currently over in Europe. They'll be back on 11/3, though, for their record release show at Brooklyn's Diviera Drive.
