Theres a staccato charm to Kai Exos’ first song, a stuttering and yet somehow smooth neo-soul/pop song which brandishes a dizzying array of influences. Singing, he can barely be contained–pacing back and forth as he quietly croons over his guitar accompaniment. Check out the session after the jump.

The Bones of JR Jones recently released his fourth project, Ones to Keep Close. The largely solo endeavor has plugged in and expanded, his once quiet and introspective songs, often mournful and heartfelt, have taken on a hard blues edge.

Imagine knowing someone who has the dedication and willpower to write a song a day for four years. Well, Max Clarke, the prolific Brooklyn musician behind Cut Worms… he knew that guy.

I had the luck to catch Belle Game the other week at School Night/Bardot amid a crazy couple weeks of work.

They are going to for sure be a band to watch.
