Get ready for new music arriving very soon from indie singer-songwriters Kyle Lalone and Ben Bostick, but first is the return of the Gypsy jazz band, Hot Club Of Los Angeles. Their new album "Cinema Swing" features a dozen tracks that mix some well-known film gem scores with some originals. They start off the album with one of those originals, the title song "Cinema Swing," which has an old-time classic jazz appeal with just the right amount of energy to keep the tempo grooving. Next, Hot Club Of Los Angeles features the work of the famous jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt, as the band perform a version of "Douce Ambiance." They keep the rhythm swinging with "Bossa Sepulveda" and "Swing Gitan," before delivering another Reinhardt favorite, the French love song "Nuages." Hot Club Of Los Angeles finish their new album off with the swift guitar strumming quickness of "After You've Gone" and the "gypsy jazz" feel of the closer "Noto Swing."

Next, dive into the third full-length release from Ben Bostick titled "Among The Faceless Crowd." As Ben's attention turns toward family and the expectation of his second child, the music on this new ten track release has more emotional weight to it, as he promises everything in "Absolutely Emily." He picks the tempo up after the slow, quiet acoustics of "Wasting Gas," with the Americana-stomp rhythm of "Working For A Living." Ben finally plugs in for the country vibe of "The Last Coast," before slowing back down with the storied lyrics of "Central Valley" and the classic, Pete Seeger sounding folk of "Too Dark To Tell." Ben Bostick wraps up his new album with the fragile touch of "If I Were In A Novel," which finishes this album that is filled to the brim with emotion.

We finish with the new arrival from Kyle Lalone titled "Somewhere In Between," which will be released on April 24th. Lalone has toured the U.S. numerous times as a sideman, and has finally stepped to the forefront for his second EP filled with classic-sounding country-twang. He begins his new five song release with the sweet pedal steel guitar sounds of "Think Myself To Death," as Kyle's vocals match the upbeat country swinging song perfectly. Next, he slows down for a moment of the heart with the emotional ballads of "Our Love" and "Warning Signs," before closing his new short release with the nostalgic country twang of "Not Gonna Drink Over You."
