Singles Club: Foreign Air + Jaye Bartell + Lo Moon

Consider Singles Club your musical matchmaker. I do hope you'll give all these ready to mingle bachelors and bachelorettes your ear as you listen to some new favorite tunes. Read on in the hopes of finding your musical love connection.

Trolling the trolls can be a noble endeavor these days. That's the issue at the heart of the matter in Foreign Air's "Lying." "I just want to be mean to someone else," they state with no small amount of a snarky smirk. The down and dirty, almost bawdy beats and predatory purr make this a mighty fine listen.   

We live in troubled times, a notion of which Jaye Bartell is well aware. Bartell's "In a Time of Trouble" is "an ode to spite and perseverance," a raw and subtle proclamation that "maybe your song is pathetic, but you song it anyway or the love inside you will die." This rough-hewn racket is more appealing with each listen.    

Despite their relative new kid status, LA's Lo Moon continues to impress. "Thorns" is an evocative, sinuous 80s-kissed gem, a heady dream of velvet vocals and supple waves of sound. The song beautifully expresses a seductive sense of longing, a palpable ache for a certain someone. Another stunner from this band to watch.
