Miles Wider: Strange Lullabies

Feel like basking in a lengthy acoustic collection? Miles Wilder‘s Strange Lullabies are here to rock you off to a musical dreamland. Exaggeration aside, the 18-track affair is an impressive feat for a first album. Surely, “the culmination of a year and a half of work” has paid off, cleverly making the entire live feature sound like polished studio sessions.

Manua Loa: Tales & The Sea

A trip to the lukewarm embrace of the sea isn’t complete with a good soundtrack, on which Manua Loa perfectly fits the role to a T. The band’s third and latest effort, Tales & The Sea, is your ideal jam-by-the-fireside ditty, and will no doubt garner new fans for this German band. The three-piece act composed of Jules Ahoi, Alaska WhiteSun, and Duncan Vert (we’re expecting some German-sounding names, though) have rendered the acoustic gods proud.

A Treehouse Wait: A Treehouse Wait

Climb up the treehouse and wait for the melodies to come pouring forth. An exaggeration, but that’s how listening to A Treehouse Wait‘s self-titled EP precisely feels and sounds like. Jenny Wahlström and her peers bring their amazing brand of indie pop from Stockholm to our ears — music that’s at par with the likes of Bon Iver and The Weepies.

Bonnie Bordeaux: The Damsel Diaries

In the mood for a throwback? We’ve got the damsel for you. Taking a share of the delicious musical pie is newcomer Bonnie Bordeaux (even her name sounds super gorgeous), who’s bringing her own iteration of pop by tastefully concocting it with 40′s style of jazz and soul. The result? A stunning 7-track debut masterpiece that we’ll simply refer to as The Damsel Diaries.

William Hawkins: Counting On Forever

We’ve been on a slew of indie releases these past few weeks, and it just feels like we need a breather. But before that (hiatus), let us rave on how great William Hawkins‘ release is. Not much is known about him, since all Google returns is a myriad of unrelated searches, spanning personalities with the same name from the 70s to the present — none of which are helpful on pointing who’s the real one.

Jeremy Messersmith: The Reluctant Graveyard

Bored of the usual pumpkins and cadaver costumes? Jeremy Messersmith‘s music is here to spice up your Halloween celebrations! Okay, so we’re probably taking the title of his 2010 album (The Reluctant Graveyard) too literally, but its songs really do imbibe the graveyard theme — we kid you not — that’s enough to get you through the occasion.

Joni Fatora: Blue Road

With the advent of sensitive singer-songwriter types, the all-important question “Who to follow?” seems harder and harder to answer as the days pass. But, to get you started, let us help you with that: Joni Fatora. The Connecticut-born songstress is poised to conquer air waves with her debut EP, Blue Road, and our picky ears are pretty much pointing to the positive route. (Yes, Joni’s our girl.)

Liza Ellen: Everything’s Okay

Let Liza Ellen take you on a trip back to the early 2000s. The Dallas-based songstress, who labels her music stylishly as ‘neo soul’, is out to bring the lucrative R&B genre back to the way it used to be — smooth and chill. One spin on her latest EP, Everything’s Okay, and this budding talent is one to be compared to acts like Jill Scott and even Erykah Badu.

Inch Chua: Wallflower

Inch Chua is a talented singer-songwriter, composer, and multi-instrumentalist (yep, she does it all) coming to us straight from Singapore. As an opening act for both Katy Perry & Vampire Weekend, and a first Singapore solo artist to be invited to the prestigious South by Southwest (SXSW) Music Festival in Austin, Texas, she has already established herself as a tough act to follow and a musician with a bright future. Her sound stands in the crossroads between early Gwen Stefani and Lisa Loeb, and her little creations will certainly make you sway left and right as you switch between the lovely melodies of Wallflower, the latest full album.
