WOOLBRIGHT (Whelmed Records)
This indie quartet hails from Davie, Florida and delivers a creative blend of driven, emotional punk anchored in somber yet determined vocals, melodic guitars and lyrics that paint vivid pictures of solemn moments. Their brand new full-length, "Busybody Lazybones," (out Aug. 9) covers very personal struggles with mental health, loss and toxic relationships, in a way that is instantly relateable and often immensely empowering.
Upbeat and energetic, Ithaca's own pop punk four-piece Maple Hill writes catchy, vibey punk sure to get you moving and surer still to have you singing along on every sweet hook. Their debut LP, "Headspace," released early last year, is a dynamic powerhouse of an album with memorable moments throughout.
VIEW FINDER (Urgency! Records)
Songwriter and photographer Brad Merrell's folk-rock project began with a self-produced album, "Burdens of Being a Person," in April of 2016. With poetic passages detailing internal and interpersonal struggles, rhythmically strummed guitars and increasingly eclectic arrangements in every song, these songs, and those on the upcoming follow-up EP, are unmistakably unique and memorable.
Basic disclaimer: Respect the space, respect each other.
