Here are a couple of sweet odds and ends...
As the school year looms on the horizon, I, too, am beginning to thin about the other side of June -- 2016, that is. I kid, but Ona's "Cassingle" already makes me feel nostalgia for washed-out summers and idle porch hangouts, even in the midst of a heatwave and with a week left until students arrive in NYC.
Ona will release the full album soon, but you can buy these two songs on Bandcamp for $3 (a steal!) or if you're one of Those People, on cassette for $4.

If you're looking for something a bit more aggressive, Mama's got a secret and Them Vibes want to tell you all about it. If you dig it, there's more where that came from when they release their EP, TV, which drops tomorrow. Personally, I can't get enough of the swagger on this song, and machismo posturing is generally not something I enjoy. These guys definitely have "it" for sure.
