Here are the latest New Music selections from the On The Record column in tomorrow’s edition of The Ticket. Please feel free to share tips below or check out all past New Music selections here.

Wild Party

From San Antonio in the heart of Texas, Wild Party are a bunch of bucks with a really sweet take on full-throttle indie-pop and sweaty, punky garage. Check out “Phantom Pop” and potential barnstormers like “When I Get Older”.


From Nottingham, Indiana’s soulful bluesy voice and her ace way with a tune has had many singing her praises. We like what she’s done to Frank Ocean’s “Swim Good”, but we much prefer her own tunes like “Bound” and “Erase”.

Jean Harnett

Singer-songwriter from Co Sligo, Jean Harnett’s biggest attribute right now is her striking, distinctive voice. That said, her “Bricks & Mortar EP”, especially the title track, is well worth investigating for those seeking tunes with some heart and soul.
