Tall Heights share new song “Fire Escape”

Tall Heights have released a new song “Fire Escape” on Sony Masterworks in time for their tour supporting Ben Folds.

“We tracked ‘Fire Escape’ as a single day recording experiment — at the time, we weren’t ready to start making the next record yet, but we wanted to put ourselves back in the studio head space and get our wheels turning. By the end of the day, we felt really inspired by what we had captured and energized to create more.”

NPR Music premieres Frances Cone’s ‘Unraveling’

NPR Music premieres new Frances Cone song “Unraveling.” “It’s only rolled out a few songs so far, but the Brooklyn band Frances Cone has already carved out a distinct sound — a sweet slow burn in which songs build gradually and carefully into something truly grand. The gorgeous ‘Unraveling,’ from a forthcoming album called Late Riser, really gets at what works about Frances Cone’s music: Each cooed ‘ooooh’ is in the exact right place, weaving together to form a warm and hypnotic tapestry.”
