“My Head Is Healing”. Right On. “Head” is the latest from UK songwriter James Beau Barclay. If you’re into Yellow Days, King Krule, Rex Orange County, etc, Mr. Barclay is likely to be up your street and the new “My Head is Healing” is an excellent first introduction.
Forthcoming from L.A. artist Albert Kass’ new album is “Hurricane”. A spare acoustic-driven track that reminds melodically a bit of Neil Young, “Hurricane” is described by Kass as “my coming of age-you know, that feeling of loss, of coming to terms with the harsh realization that life isn’t handed to you.” That narrative of realization is neatly juxtaposed on the track to a subtly sweet main melody. Kass further comments, “Now that I’m older and comfortable in my own skin, I’m fascinated by the joys and miseries of childhood, how I perceived growing up, and how that perception changed over time. In writing Hurricane, those bittersweet emotions really worked themselves out in song—in melody, especially.” We’re pleased to present the B3SCI Premiere of Albert Kass’ “Hurricane” below.
MorMor, the rapid in ascent project of Toronto artist Seth Nyquist, streams the B3-approved jangle + melancholy sound of new one “Pass the Hours”.

That “you’ve got me overwhelmed” melodic turn, those bits of jazzy piano, “STUCK ON U”, new-ish from New York band MICHELLE is a very nice piece of indie songwriting that deserves your attention below.
The great Ryan Egan is back with a new record in the form of “Won’t You Be the One”. We’re digging the track’s midtempo 70’s-esque aesthetic and the brand new video for the song (which we’re very pleased to premiere at B3SCI!). Egan collaborated with co-director Amanda Taylor Evans for the “Won’t You Be the One” vid and describes his aim in matching the track’s feel, “We wanted to create a visual that complimented the slow-melting, sleepy groove of the track and I thought it’d be rad to base it all around a slowly rotating Spike Lee style dolly shot.”
Stream the B3SCI Premiere of Ryan Egan’s video for the excellent track Won’t You Be the One below.
