Two Live Video Premieres In August For Rachael Sage

Footage Shot At The Legendary Joe's Pub / NYC

Rachael Sage's release party at the legendary Joe's Pub / NYC for her latest all-acoustic album, PseudoMyopia, was not only a roaring success but also produced stunning live videos - two of which snagged premieres both in the US and the UK over the summer.

"This Darkness (live @Joe's Pub)", complete w/ haunting background vocals by the über talented Shannon Conley (Hedwig and the Angry Inch), premiered on 8/13 with Indie-Music in the United Kingdom, who felt that it "...shows Sage’s captivating performance style and illustrates her musical talents perfectly."

"Myopia (live @Joe's Pub)" debuted on 8/26 with IMAAI (Independent Music and Arts Inc.) who perfectly summed up the clip, saying: "Musically, the performance is both vocally mesmerizing and instrumentally enchanting...this performance of ‘Myopia’ is simply stunning."

Politically-Charged Indie Rockers A Fragile Tomorrow Release "Generation Loss"

Premieres With The Big Takeover, On Tour Now

Politically motivated indie rockers A Fragile Tomorrow released their new full-length album Generation Loss on 2/22/19 via MPress Records/ILS/Caroline.

An anthem for in-debt, disaffected twenty-somethings.” POPDUST

Hit with hard times in their everyday lives as struggling young adults, the band presents a collection of modern songs that are easily relatable to their generational peers. The krautrock, psych-leaning release premiered on The Big Takeover and is now available for streaming or purchase (below).

The Kelly brothers - Sean, Dom, and Brendan - make up 3/4 of the band and the recent passing of their mother is another subject reflected in songs like "I See My Son". The grieving process peeks in and out of the lyrics throughout, but hits hardest in the album’s closing track “Valhalla".

The band is currently on tour in support of the album, with a string of East Coast dates lined up for the next month as they head through South Carolina, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and two shows in New York. Check out their tour schedule for a show near you!
