Independent folk artist Anthony da Costa will be releasing his much anticipated new album "Feet On The Dashboard" at the end of the month. Anthony da Costa has been sharing the stage with a number of great folk artists (Loretta Lynn, Joy Williams, Big Thief) and has continued to grow his fanbase with each show and each new album. This latest release features eleven tracks, beginning with the title-song "Feet On The Dashboard," which contains a nostalgic vibe, which brings up comparisons to a young Bob Dylan. The album continues with the up-tempo rocker "Sooner Than Later," before slowing down for the up-lifting reggae groove of "Dreams." The six-minute, slow blues of "Thanksgiving" has moments of energy, but mostly stays quiet. He taps a pop vein with the addictive sound of "You're Free Now," while "Ordinary Man" is pure folk emotions. Anthony da Costa closes out his new album with the gentle flow of "Next To You" and the slow, country sway of "Waltz."

Next up is the self-titled debut album from the Canadian folk band, Little Misty. Their new nine song release starts off with the gentle acoustics of "Old Ghosts," as you begin to get familiar with the innocent sounding vocals of Katheryn Samman. They adds a slow, swaying blues vibe to "Keeper," before showcasing their progressive side with the tempo changes of "The Path." The lyrics of "Jimmy Boy," feel as if is was meant for the sixties psychedelic era, while "The Diner" picks up the tempo with the steady pace that lay the groundwork for the song's storied lyrics. Little Misty finish their new album with the six-minute progressive folk journey of "Helen" and the light, airy feel of "Drifting," which simply explodes with energy in the middle of the song.

Another new release recently arrived from Canadian singer/songwriter Kinley. Her new self-titled album features eight tracks, beginning with folk-pop melody of "Run With You," which starts the album off strong.

Kinley's sound gets even bigger with the alternative rock approach of "The Quiet One," before she closes out her new album with the upbeat, swinging rhythm of "Washington" and the beautiful, emotional acoustic ballad "I've Got Money Coming In."
