Indie group PM People releases new EP album ‘Yrc’

PACIFIC NORTHWEST, USA, 2021-Jun-07 — /Indie Music News Network/ —

The indie rock crew known as PM People have released their latest official EP album, “Yrc.” It contains seven original PM People tracks for an approximate total listening time of 25 mins. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Raw, mellow, soulful, unrestrained, and bringing the original indie sound with utterly rare authenticity, “Yrc” introduces PM People as the most intriguing indie rock crew in recent memory.

The Pacific NW’s PM People — often stylized (pm people) — cite as main artistic influences John Cooper Clark, At the Gates, Guided by Voices, Sun Kil Moon, Dire Straits, Pop Smoke, Kodak Black, and “probably Velvet Underground above all.” With an emphasis on highly stylized songwriting and a no-frills purity in production, “Yrc” by PM People will scratch that Robert Pollard itch in a way indie fans have needed for some time.

PM People are Isaiah Warren, Gage Lovett, and Jeremy Parker. Asked to describe the overall theme of “Yrc,” Warren writes:

“Life will never be easy, but it can be managed. Not only that, it’s even possible to set your own terms.”

Lead vocalist Warren has described himself as “a fanboy, every show, every time, 1 EP every 2 years,” which time he decries as “slacking.” Nevertheless, during that time he lived and played with legends from such groups as Everclear, Wehrmacht, Hitting Birth, MDC, the Joneses, the Lemonheads, Morrissey, P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S., and yet more. When COVID shut everyone indoors, he called someone with whom he had a true sonic connection, Gage Lovett.

“It’s not how good you are at something, it’s how comfortable you are with it. I feel comfortable with Gage and he’s the missing link in how these songs need to be expressed. That might seem like a pretentious notion, but I really do feel strongly about these songs. I sing, play guitar, bass, keyboards, and percussion, and he sings and plays guitar. Our friend by providential circumstance, Jeremy, plays the mean drums.”

Ultimately, though, Warren points to the art.

“That’s all really a footnote,” he writes on behalf of PM People. “A song is a song. These should speak for themselves.”

“Yrc” by PM People on the is available from over 500 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, indie-rock fans.

Lynne Ferguson releases new single ‘Why Don’t You Do Right’ feat. Wilson Pickett

SUQUAMISH, Wash., 2021-Jun-02 — /Indie Music News Network/ —

Folk and country singer-songwriter Lynne Ferguson has released her latest single, “Why Don’t You Do Right” featuring George Naha, Aretha & Wilson Pickett, and Jay Anderson (Zappa, Bowie, Carmen McRae). The track is a shadowy, country-tinged cover of the 1938 blues standard paired with a ’73 Paul Simon cover, “American Tune.” It comes from her upcoming 20th album release, a retrospective album showcasing recordings from the last 30 years.

Like the rest of Ferguson’s contemporary material, these have been proudly published independent of the corporate music industry on the Zombie Pile record label. Soulful, elegantly performed and impeccably produced, “Why Don’t You Do Right” and “American Tune” represent the latest evidence that Lynne Ferguson has more than enough sonorous spirit to go around.

Lynne Ferguson of Suquamish, WA, cites as main artistic influences Ella Fitzgerald, Tracy Nelson, and Mavis Staples. As has been said of her 2019 album, “Lo Siento Mi Vida,” Ferguson’s style is likely to appeal to fans of Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Billy Jo Spears, and the classic Americana sound. Rebraiding the 1938 classic’s mournful bars into a dark and sultry western dirge, “Why Don’t You Do Right” by Lynne Ferguson has more character than a Charles Dickens persona.

Asked to describe the overall theme of “Why Don’t You Do Right,” Lynne Ferguson writes, “We support our free non-profit Native Horsemanship Youth Program with music, and I’ve been fortunate to work with some of my favorite artists.”

Zombie Pile describes Lynne Ferguson as a bona-fide veteran of folk and country-western music who has been writing and performing music for decades. She has recorded with Mark O’Connor, Jerry Douglas, Eddie Bayers, and many more. Her career found strong, early support in the form of avid Lynne Ferguson advocate and blues legend, Taj Mahal, with whom she toured as his opening act..

“Why Don’t You Do Right” by Lynne Ferguson on the Zombie Pile label is available from quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, Americana music fans.

David R. Villegas drops surprise EP album ‘The Grand Bargain’

WARRENTON, Virginia, 2021-Jun-01 — /Indie Music News Network/ —

The songwriter and producer of modern classical piano music known as David R. Villegas has released his latest official EP, “The Grand Bargain.” On it are four new David Villegas tracks for a length circa 20 minutes, making for a roundly satisfying new chapter in his growing repertoire. Like other recent drops from Villegas, “Grand Bargain” has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Varied, optimistic, and colorfully kaleidoscopic in texture and tone, “The Grand Bargain” is the latest reason for fans of piano music to sit up and take notice of this indie pianist from the East Coast.

Warrenton, Virginia’s David R. Villegas cites as main artistic influences Jean-Michel Blais, Debussy, Ravel, Hans Zimmer, and “of course Yanni.” Engaging listeners from the start with rippling arpeggios and intriguing chord progressions, “The Grand Bargain” by David R. Villegas brings melodic hooks to classical songwriting in a way fans of all music can appreciate.

Asked to describe the overall theme of “The Grand Bargain,” David R. Villegas writes, “The Grand Bargain is about life tradeoffs, the opportunity costs we encounter when choosing the road less travelled by, and ‘Mi Historia’ is a new piece inspired by the story of my ancestral family.”

This latest EP, “Grand Bargain,” comes on the heels of his “Out of Nowhere” EP debut, which landed on digital shelves only last February. A pilot by trade, Villegas considers piano composition more than a simple hobby.

“Been writing for a lot of years and have built a catalogue of compositions I’m slowly recording and releasing,” Villegas says. “Music is my therapy, and my passion is sitting down at the piano and composing. My day job is in aviation, but my flow is in the 88 keys.”

“The Grand Bargain” by David R. Villegas is available from over 500 quality digital-music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, modern classical piano music fans.
