As we close out the month of May we present the last of the Spring releases and head into Summer, but not before we get one release show this weekend. We'll look at the online albums first and we'll start with the debut album from Bytheway-May. The SLC-based duo of Brenden Bytheway and Doug May have created a sound they refer to as contemporary new age, or for the informal listener, it sounds like an instrumental film soundtrack to a movie where some guy discovers something about himself and learns a lesson along the way. In any case, their debut album Daydream sounds beautiful, almost haunting, and is a must-have for anyone digging alt-indie mixed with piano. You can download it for $7 on their Bandcamp page.

Next up we have the latest from SLC electronic producer 100Day Delay. One of the resident performers on SLC label Damn Son!, the artist already had a cool debut with the Imperfect EP back in January. Now he's bumped the track listing from 3 to 5 and released his second EP, Your Sky. This one goes more into low-fi groove and chill bass, but it still retains the electronica we enjoyed from the first EP. You can download it for whatever you'd like to pay on the label's Bandcamp.

Next up are a couple releases where they don't come out until June 1, but because this post is weekly and because they're live, we're going to talk about them. The first of two is from SLC solo performer Cade Walker, who has a soulful acoustic vibe going for his music. He's definitely got the chops, but there isn't much to say on his live performances as he has yet to get out of the studio. His debut album, Wolf Gang, will be out on Tuesday, you can pre-order a copy for $8 on Bandcamp.

The second album is from Dubble A Prime, a Lehi-based musician with a love for psyche and hip-hop. Prior to his solo efforts, he was a member of the SLC hip hop group Opposite Affect, who are slowly becoming their own awesome group with a record on the way. But in the meantime, Dubble decided to put out his own release, a full-length album called A Fish Has Got To Swim. Very experimental and very electro-produced, it's at least worth checking out. You can pre-order it for $7 on Bandcamp.

Finally the one release show we have this week comes to us from Whitney Lusk. Lusk is a pop-country artist who is still finishing off high school as we write this, one of few remaining musicians that have become high-profile in Utah while still attending school, probably because the whole Archuleta thing turned a lot of kids off to the idea of becoming music sensations before the awkward years were over. For the past couple years, Lusk's had a number fo singles come out, as well as a 2013 EP titled You Make Me Smile. She's been hard at work on new material for the past year so it will be interesting to see how her voice and style have changed as she's grown up. You can snag a copy of her new self-titled EP tomorrow night at the Stereo Room, with Ashley Hess and Nathan Turley opening the show, followed by DJ Jarvicious and a dance at the end of the evening. Tickets are $10 in advance and the doors open at 7 p.m.


Love music, head out, buy local.
