Dear Blanca – “Overpass” Single Release

We here at CM are proud to announce the release of a new single from the upcoming Dear Blanca full length, entitled “Perched”! It’s got the electric jolts, energetic jams, and extensive jaunt that you’ve come to expect from this Big Star-influenced powerhouse.

LISTEN TO “OVERPASS” AND PREORDER THE RECORD HERE!

Perched is out on LP/CASS/DIG July 31st via Comfort Monk

New Track: Stagbriar feat. Cayla Fralick – “The Flu”

We at Comfort Monk are beside ourselves with excitement to announce the new Stagbriar single “The Flu,” released today in advance of their August 21st offering of long-awaited sophomore LP “Suppose You Grow.”

“The Flu” is built upon rumbling cello and soft percussion, establishing a frame to support the tight harmonies, sung like a pizzicato string section. Its atmosphere and lyrics are a pensive reflection on one’s defense mechanisms.

Hear the new track and pre-order the record here! Available on vinyl, CD, and digital formats on 8/21/2020 via Comfort Monk/Stagbriar.
