Samiere’s “No Service”: West Coast Cool Cat On Love and Insecurity

Musician Samiere released her most recent single on her birthday, July 12, as a (reverse?) birthday present for all of her fans and listeners. The song is called “No Service” and it is as unique and exciting as the artist herself.

Samiere has been incredibly prolific in this year alone, releasing an EP called XOXO and a single called “Prove” in addition to “No Service.” “No Service” takes place in a secluded location, miles west of Malibu, where there is literally no internet service. Samiere is “happy either way” as long as she’s with the person she loves.

Vanela and RDGLDGRN are Bringing the “Good Life”

Vanela and RDGLDGRN have teamed up to drop a new track titled, “Good Life.” They originally recorded the track for the video game The Sims 4, and the shazams racked up so much attention, that the song has gained a ton of anticipation for the release. The song starts with a catchy piano melody, adding in some catchy synth elements with the hook singing, “I’ve been dreaming bout the good life, now I live that good life, living for the goods yeah.” “Good Life” is a great song to play during a long drive on your way to the beach.

Interview: DuPont Brass Releases Magnificent New Album Music Education

Recently, Alchemical Records had the privilege of speaking with Jared Bailey, a member of the DMV legends DuPont Brass. The band recently released their terrific album Music Education, full of outstanding brass solos, complex musicality, and catchy melodies. It is a breakthrough album for their already-thoroughly established voice.

The first song I heard off of Music Education was “Bring That Ass Here.” It is a slow, eclectic track reflecting not just a musical maturity but also some themes about growing up in general: “Bring that ass here and let me rub your feet / I swear I used to be a playa / what you done to me.” The rest of the album continues with just as much energy, from the soaring “Round Midnight” to the final party track “Let’s Go” featuring Adé.

Greene found his love for performing very early on his life, while singing in the choir at his Grandmother’s church on Sunday in the DMV area. Fast forward a few years and a young Dayon could often be found at his father’s side while he gigged in go-gos around the city. Next he learned drums, and soon enough he began his rap career.

“Melting into You” by The Infinite Daisy Chains is Out Now!

The Infinite Daisy Chains are made up of two members both local to the Washington D.C. metro area. Ian Dandridge and Kristina Westernik-Dandridge met in a dimly lit garage to meet for rehearsal, and are now married five years later. Kristina specializes in the violin, vocals, and Ableton push, whilst Ian is the guitarist of the duo. As well as the pair boasting years of experience in playing synthesizers and drum machines, Kristina was featured on the violin on Oceanids’ track ‘Tapestry’.
Much of their music was inspired by their honeymoon experience in the Californian desert, as they say, “The marriage secured their commitment to each other, and the emotion that spills over into the duo’s creative process.”
