New Music – James Supercave, Frame, Sue Rynhart
New music profiles from Los Angeles, Brooklyn and Dublin
The latest Echo Park, LA act to hit the radar, James Supercave are a five-strong crew making smart, arty alt-pop and throwing exhilarating shapes while they’re at it. Tracks like “The Right Thing” from new EP “The Afternoon” are loaded with glammy swagger and swing.
Brooklyn singer-songwriter and Berklee College of Music graduate Caitlin Frame’s tracks to date like “Run Around” and “Polarizer” bode well for her soon-come debut album. Rich, evocative and punchy, Frame is making great, timeless rock/pop with unusual hooks pulling you closer to the source.
The Dublin-based singer has featured on many recordings to date (with Fuzzy Logic Ensemble, Abigail Smith and others) and is a seasoned voice on the jazz festival circuit. New album of songs for voice and double-bass “Crossings” is released next month and is full of striking songs and vivid ideas. Hear or buy the album here.
