Earlier this week, Chelsea Sue Allen released her latest record, Lonely Ages, and we streamed it here. On the record, Allen croons lovely narratives accompanied by haunting instrumentation. Catch Chelsea Sue Allen tonight at Boot and Saddle; get ticket and show info at the XPN Concert Calendar, and listen to Lonely Ages after the jump.

Shamir is a newcomer to the pop scene, but he’s here to stay. described him as the poster child for a new generation of pop star: the post-queer, post-gender, fearlessly original kind. Shamir’s debut album, Ratchet, is stuffed with catchy beats, dance-inducing synths, and an angelic falsetto. Watch Shamir’s music video for “Call It Off” below, and catch him at the First Unitarian Church tonight. Get tickets and show info here.

Son Little has been making lots of moves this fall. After playing WXPN’s Redbull Sound Select show back in August, the Philly soul-singer put out a music video for his song “Lay Down.” Last month, he released a self-titled record via indie giant ANTI-Records, and he recorded a phenomenal cover of Drake’s “Hotline Bling.” Don’t miss his hometown show tonight at Johnny Brenda’s. Get tickets and show info at the XPN Concert Calendar, and watch his video for “Lay Down.”
