Moonrise Nation
At turns ethereal and powerful, Moonrise Nation—releasing their debut album, Glamour Child, on July 28—create aural experiences that pulse from ear to heart. The trio of keyboardist-Arden Baldinger, cellist Eva Baldinger, and guitarist Emma McCall (all share songwriting and vocal duties) hails from Oak Park, Illinois, also home to Ernest Hemingway and Frank Lloyd Wright. Like those kindred spirits, their storytelling begins in a very personal place, but is always sculpted into something universal. Its first single is the title track, about a toxic relationship, which has already tallied nearly a million streams.

As teenagers, the Americana-pop Moonrise Nation played local bars, put their music on SoundCloud, and recorded a folky, self-titled EP, produced by David Z (Prince, Etta James). It was released in 2014 by his brother, Bobby Z (a member of the Revolution, Prince’s band), who continues to serve as an artistic sounding board for the trio.

Glamour Child, Moonrise Nation’s latest album, was produced by Stephen Shirk (Delta Spirit, Alabama Shakes) and took three years to make. A vivid time capsule of the trio’s growth from teenagers to adulthood, it captures the vertiginous, Millennial high-lows of self-confidence and doubt, happiness and practicality, innocence and reality.

Luray creates strange and lovely bedfellows of sound – banjo layered over ambient sounds make up this once bluegrass-picking songwriter’s approach to making music. The end result is somewhere between the likes of Iron & Wine and Emmylou Harris. Luray’s debut album The Wilder was called "beautifully lush” by Bob Boilen of NPR. Luray is currently located in Richmond, Virginia, and their second album will be released soon.
