Folkadelphia shared the inaugural Suitcase Sessions episode, an Alan Lomax-inspired, on-location recording with Skinny Lister at the North Star Bar’s Victorian Dining Room.  Later in the week we got a second helping of folky sessions with Holy Ghost Tent Revival; stream “Rollin’ Over” from Skinny Listern below and download both sessions here.

Nashville’s Moon Taxi are gearing up to release Mountains Beaches Cities in September, sharing “The New Black” as a preview of their third full-length.  The indie pop outfit made an appearance on World Cafe in the spring during host David Dye’s Sense of Place: Nashville feature – listen back to the band’s segment here and download “The New Black” in exchange for your email below.

Khari Mateen turned in a stellar Key Studio Session this week, performing songs off of last year’s Wait for Sunrise EP as well as this year’s Khari EP.  The Grammy-nominated producer and multi-instrumentalist showed off all sides of his musical persona in the session, winding his way around pop, experimental and soul.  Stream “Day By Day” below and go here for the full set.

Jeffrey Lewis is coming to town on August 14th for a show at the West Kensington Ministry.  The anti-folk luminary is touring in support of both a book and album – he and co-headliner Jamiee Garbacik published Gender & Sexuality for Beginners this year and Lewis released Hey Hey It’s… The Jeffrey Lewis & Peter Stampfel Band last year.  To get in the mood for the upcoming show with Roof Doctor, stream and download a full set Lewis’ Brooklyn show via NYCTaper here.
