Arriving September 17th is the sophomore effort from singer, songwriter and cellist Laura Mihalka titled "Feels Electric." Laura is also a member of Channel Islands Chamber Orchestra and was a former member of the 90's rock band Liquid Sunshine. Her new eleven-song release combines these two musical worlds, beginning with the dreamy, floating melody of "Feels Electric," which continues to rise and deliver on the high expectations from this artist. Laura's vocals have a calm, soothing tone during the ballad "Falling Apart," before shifting gears to the darker, alternative-pop of "The Pineapple Man," which showcases a different side to her music. She shines on the gentle touch of "Forgiven," which closes with a stellar solo piece. Laura returns to the dreamy-pop tones of "Out For The Night" and the soaring sounds of "Sacred Sky," before finishing off her new album with the quiet musical layers of the album closer "Looking Back."

Another new arrival comes from the singing duo Air Cool Jenny. Their new four-song EP titled "First Flight" arrives September 10th. It is the first EP released by Air Cool Jenny (Helen Rose and Kramer Sanguinetti), who met only two years earlier at a live event and haven't looked back. The album kicks off with the wonderful folk harmonies of "Pelican," before the song builds with volume and intensity, which allows Helen's rock-style vocals to take flight. They return with the softer, bluesy Americana-feel of "When I Rise," before picking up the tempo with the fun, quick, bluegrass-romp of "Pissin' On The Moon." Their sound is perfectly captured on the poetic touch of the album closer "When The River's Gone."
