May 6 - Brooklyn's She Keeps Bees play hard-stomping, guttural blues-rock tossed like some tiny frigate by Jessica Larrabee's stormy hollers, working "a bluesy, primal territory in the footsteps of P.J. Harvey" says The New York Times.
May 13 - North Highlands alternate between bright guitars, jangly rhythms and steely, inscrutable dissonance, pushed further afield by Brenda Malvini's striking vocals.
May 20 - Lacrymosa is Caitlin Pasko. A native of Virgina who was trained in classical piano from a young age, she uses her virtuosic talents to craft what she calls "whimsical forest music," nimbly switching tempo and mood in earthily poetic songs never loath to wander.
May 27 - Shenandoah and the Night brew moody pop noir from a blend of doo-wop, soul, fado, folk, country and cabaret, compelled by the hypnotic vocals of singer-songwriter Shenandoah Ableman, formerly of San Francisco's Yard Dogs Road Show.
