Raised in Bakersfield, California before making her way to New York City; Jeni Magana issued her debut EP 'Golden Tongue' last year on Audio Antihero Records to glowing reviews and national airplay, making a number of end-of-the-year lists. Magana offers a stunning new voice in the Indie world: ghostly but raw, tender but powerful.
“Pages” is a Free Tour Single from Brooklyn's Jeni Magana, following her acclaimed late 2016 debut EP Golden Tongue. Her work has recently found praise and support from The Line of Best Fit, London In Stereo, EARMILK, yvynyl, BBC, FM4, Podcart, GoldFlakePaint, Shout4Music, IMPOSE, BIRP.FM, El Correo, Fame Mag, The Le Sigh, The Grey Estates, God Is In The TV, Collapse Board, Resonance FM, Dandelion Radio and numerous Best of the Year lists.
Live favourite “Pages” is an early experiment in Magana’s ever shifting solo sound, previously unreleased up to now. It’s a gorgeous standalone document of her evolving creativity and expression. The song shows a more traditionally Indie Rock side to Magana's dreamy Alt. Pop sound with a her stunning voice soaring over the ragged instrumentation. It's heartfelt and emotional rock music with ghosts whispering through the walls.

Ali Murray is an ethereal folk songwriter/musician from the cold isle of Lewis in the north of Scotland. He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.
Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
