Singles Club: Clans + Robert Earl Thomas + Screaming Females

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.

"If you knew I was trouble/why'd you let me in," questions Nicholas Monjarez, voice choked with a palpable aching. Under his Clans moniker, Monjarez creates something both beautiful and yearning with "Trouble (The Boy Who Cried, I Am Wolf)," an ethereal tugger of heartstrings.    

With "Another Age," Widowspeak's Robert Earl Thomas has crafted a modern Americana masterpiece. The song has this sense of being a moment captured, that deep breath you take right before something monumental happens. It's expectant, searching, uncertain, and just plain wonderful.  

I love everything about "Deeply." Including but not limited to the lyric video. Screaming Females here win the day with simplicity and potency. In this case, that's the combination of matter-of-fact vocals, enthusiastic beats of the drum, and a little black magic. The band is touring next year, and hopefully this one makes it into their live set.
