New releases

"Water Rises" is out now!

We made a party song about climate catastrophe. 

The ghost of Hurricane Sandy still lurks in New York City almost nine years later. You can see it in the high-water marks memorialized in corners of Red Hook, the endless service disruptions still caused by the flooding, and the millions of dollars allocated for defenses against rising sea levels that still have yet to break ground. In short, New York is a city haunted by the promise of its future: climate change.  

But screw bumming. WATER RISES is here to make you smile, make you think, and maybe make change by moving to a climate change anthem. 

Meet ALMA

A trio of ladies in film scoring and audio engineering bringing a quirky, cinematic, DIY approach to pop. Their music is immersive, chock full of vocal harmony and homegrown production, and cut with a dash of sass and a side of groove.

Though the pandemic hit in the middle of writing and recording their debut album, ALMA leaned into the creative constraints of studio shutdowns and went rogue with production at home that has become part of their signature sound. Armed with a mobile microphone and a DIY sensibility, they use airplanes as cymbals, parental phone chats as texture, slices of last year's Fourth of July Party, and even samples of a roomie splashing in the tub to produce their music out of the recording studio with the sounds of the world they inhabit. Then, they bathe it all in ethereal harmonies and old-fangled synthesizers.

Their debut LP Mosaic is a personal letter to NYC. Each song delivers the story of a moment in time in the city they call home. Mosaic invites you to sit beside them on the subway, walk with them through Astoria park, and ride the Wonder Wheel at night as you feel into what it means to be a New Yorker.
