Los Angeles indie/alternative artist Marella just released the new track "I Think She's In Love With Me", a surf rock love anthem with a twist. To celebrate we asked Daniel Marella to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

Isla Vista, California. In the house that we inherited from generations of UC Santa Barbara swimmers. We call it the Brandenburg (Burg for short), once built long ago by famous English writer and philosopher Aldous Huxley, now owned by just another Isla Vista slumlord. Even with brick floors that look like they've been there since the original build, chipped painted walls that we have drawn our names all over, and windows that have seen the ups and downs of our college lives that bear the chlorine musk that we all shared, we call it home. As we passed the house on to the next guys, not only did we pass down our old wooden table, mattresses, and refrigerator magnets, but the stories within the walls that made this totally normal house so special for us. And for me, I was lucky enough to write "I Think She's In Love With Me" in the Burg. (continue)

Moonsville Collective have released their new album, "A Hundred Highways", and to celebrate we asked Corey Adams to tell us about the track "Long Gone". Here is the story:

The well of the American songbook is abundant, pure, and rich. Characters that come to mind are Huddie "Lead Belly" Ledbetter, Woody Guthrie, Mississippi John Hurt, Brownie McGhee, Stephen Foster, Muddy Waters, Gillian Welch, Dylan, Cash - you get it. I often find myself at the well, meditating on the posture of these giants, or the notes, or the melodies, or the ironic tales that have been passed down from song to song. When I first began writing in my early twenties, I wrote a lot of little blues songs, actually. Channeling John Hurt, or Muddy, or Woody. I can't say I was much of a blues singer, so I never really got anywhere with them, but the irony, humility, and humor often found in these tunes are kind of a basis for a lot of the writing I do.
