Os The Glockenwise, que estarão esta noite, ao vivo, no MusicBox, com os Ramones no coração, representam Portugal no Music Alliance Pact, neste mês de Novembro, através do tema que deu o nome ao seu segundo álbum, "Leeches". Este disco foi publicado em Maio e está agora disponível em vinil; e como o quarteto de Barcelos já nos tinha habituado, esta sua mais recene colecção de temas rocka e rolla do primeiro ao último segundo, estando interdita a audição a gente sem energia. O tema deste mês, como já sabem, pode ser descarregado gratuitamente na entrada correspondente a Portugal (ver abaixo).
A não perder, o visionamento do vídeo de "Leeches", realizado por Vasco Mendes.

ARGENTINA: Zonaindie Onda Vaga - Tataralí Since their inception in 2008, Onda Vaga have avoided the steps that independent artists usually take in order to be a part of the music industry. It was a wise call. Thanks to word of mouth from a public that follows them whenever they perform, this folk-rock band have become a huge success, both locally and internationally (they made quite an impression at last year's Fuji Rock Festival in Japan). Tataralí is the first single from their recently released third album, Magma Elemental.
AUSTRALIA: Who The Bloody Hell Are They? La Mancha Negra - Belango Twist It's easy to imagine that Belango Twist might have been found inside a dusty shoebox containing a mix of rhythm and blues cassettes somewhere in the Deep South. Surprisingly that's far from the case. Sydney swamp-rockers La Mancha Negra (which loosely translates from Spanish to "The Black Stain") recently delivered their second album. Packed with blues ooze and reverberated hollers, Belango Twist is a tune that's ideal for cruising... and smashing out a few letterboxes on the way.
AUSTRIA: Walzerkönig Robotra - Morninglight 2 Don't let the noisy, distorted lo-fi shell of Robotra songs trick you. This three-piece band from Graz and their pop melodies will catch your attention and make you want to sing along immediately. Morninglight 2 is taken from their full-length debut Tinker, which was mixed and mastered by Wolfgang Möstl (Mile Me Deaf, Sex Jams, Killed By 9V Batteries).
BRAZIL: Meio Desligado Marcelo Jeneci - De Graça In Marcelo Jeneci's new psychedelic/pop-influenced album, the single De Graça is one of the weirdest and greatest songs. Strong influences of the earliest works of Caetano Veloso and Arnaldo Antunes (with whom Jeneci still plays keyboard) can be easily heard, as well as Jeneci's talent for making catchy melodies that create the kind of feeling when everything is just fine and you don't worry about anything.
CANADA: Quick Before It Melts The Dirty Nil - Nicotine The Dirty Nil want to be your dealer, and Nicotine is their gateway drug of choice. Their brand of rock and roll knows no fear, takes no prisoners and shows no mercy. They're brash, they're crass and they're gonna make you love them or die trying.
CHILE: Super 45 Fármacos - Despegarte De Mí Among the new breed of bands helping to renew the Chilean music scene, Fármacos stand out just as much for the many nuances of their sound - in which nods to electronica and pop are present - as their innate ability to create dramatic melodies that are hard to get out of your head. Despegarte De Mí is taken from their 2013 debut album Los Días Más Largos, released through Beast Discos.
DENMARK: All Scandinavian The Liquid - Hang On, To You. Stop! A lauded and prize-winning poet, Nicolaj Stochholm chose poetry over punk back in the 1980s. In 2002 he again acquired a guitar, in 2010 he formed The Liquid, and on November 27 the trio debuts with the great post-punk album Atlas Interplan. It opens with Hang On, To You. Stop!, coming to you here as a MAP exclusive download.
DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: La Casetera Charles Lavaigne - The Endless Traveller Song What happens when a folk singer makes a merengue song? The answer can be heard on The Endless Traveller Song, extracted from Charles Lavaigne's latest album The Birdfish. Amidst all the psychedelia and freak folk, this fun, melodious tune stands because it reaffirms Charles' Dominican roots, often lost in translation and his own peculiar identity. Dance off, then hear the rest of the album if you're into crazy musical rides.
ECUADOR: Plan Arteria Mundos - Gorriones The joining of two leading voices of two important local bands (Mamá Vudú and Can Can) gives life to this project that combines music and illustration. Mundos is the epicenter of talented musicians who bring their creativity and imagination into an album of 12 songs. Núcleos Activos Imaginarios is a good example of the evolution of Ecuadorian independent music, with Gorriones closing the album in a sublime way.
ESTONIA: Rada7.ee Kali Briis - Wolfman Kali Briis released new album Say Whaat? this month via the Eesti Pops label. From soul, funk and hip hop to blues, electro and pop, this 24-year-old producer feels comfortable in a wide range of genres and masters his instruments, all recorded in his own home. His 2012 album The Moon Ghost can be downloaded for free on Bandcamp.
FINLAND: Glue Ritual Smoker - Wars (single edit) Guided by blasting bass lines and rock-solid drumming, Helsinki-based band Ritual Smoker experiment with abrasive soundscapes of hypnotic effect. Wars is included in the band's debut album Not To Dominate, But To Serve, out this month.
FRANCE: Yet You're Fired Belle Arché Lou - Lumières Du Littoral Belle Arché Lou is one of those bands that surprises you while digging through vinyl crates in a record store. An unknown but pretty name, an almost poetic feel running through your body while staring at the artwork, and the assurance that this record can be nothing but great. A three-man band hailing from Paris and Geneva, Belle Arché Lou write almost orchestral pieces with unusual instruments: a vibraphone, chimes and a glockenspiel, paired most of the time with an acoustic guitar. Their songs are gorgeous, delicate, happiness-inducing instrumentals.
GREECE: Mouxlaloulouda Michalis Moschoutis - ActI Primarily concerned with contrast, Michalis Moschoutis creates works that lie on the fringes of several genres: heavy processing and live electronics; restrained, unadorned improvisation that brings out the inherent primitivism and ritualism of music; cathartic dark metal; the plainness and intimacy of 16th-17th century lute works; and the subtle fluctuations of minimal drone music. His latest single was recorded inside old churches. Listen to the repetitive yet haunting acoustic melody of ActI and sink away into a dreamy cloud of harmonic beauty.
INDONESIA: Deathrockstar Tamankota - Cerita Pagi Hari Ini Tamankota (which means "City Park") is a band from Bandung influenced by the British indie-pop scenes of the 80s and 90s. Cerita Pagi Hari Ini ("Story From This Morning") is filled with raw sunshine power.
IRELAND: Harmless Noise Crayonsmith - Chrysalis Chrysalis was released with a video ahead of Crayonsmith's new album Milk Teeth and the title was a hint at the changes in sound. Previously a solo artist working with synths, samples and guitar, Crayonsmith are now a three-piece band. Simple in construction, it's pinned to a driving, purposeful rhythm, as Ciaran Smith's vocal beseeches the listener with endearing fragility. The pattern of melody that colours the wings as this track pulls itself free and beats away is mesmerising; light yet pensive, its transformative powers hint at the unfolding darkness still to come.
ITALY: Polaroid Tiger! Shit! Tiger! Tiger! - Golden Age A gigantic electric shock: this is the music of Tiger! Shit! Tiger! Tiger! on their second album Forever Young. Fast songs, loud noises, dramatic melodies. You could easily point out names like Sonic Youth or Wavves or Male Bonding or No Age. It doesn't matter. It's the sound of electricity that becomes art and poetry. Read the titles in the playlist: Forever Young, Golden Age, Whirlwind Weekend, Fearless Youth, Rage... this is all we need right now.
JAPAN: Make Believe Melodies Boe Oakner - Cherenkov In a very short amount of time, Nagano-based Boe Oakner has been making great strides in her musical development. The 17-year-old started this year making lovely instrumentals and now she is working her voice into her songs as well. Cherenkov is an ennui-tinged waltz, featuring kitchen-sink percussion, pretty bell chimes and natural sounds like a rainstorm.
MEXICO: Red Bull Panamérika Aarón Bautista - Iguana Aarón Bautista has enjoyed a long career as a musician in some important bands from Mexico City's underground scene. Now he's going his own way with a solo project. His album doesn't sound very similar to stuff we are used to hearing from Mexico City nowadays. Or maybe it does, but in a very twisted and personal way. The record has a precious, yet punk, attitude, filled with psychedelia, gloomy folk and beautiful production. It almost sounds like something to sing along to while feeling drunk and declining in the middle of whatever scene you might find sophisticated.
PERU: SoTB Piettro - Confesiones Arequipa is a small town in southern Peru, a place where fate strove to unite Gabriel Alvarez, Saul Piettro and Juan Arce, friends who then became Piettro. Their style is a coalescence of trova and crossover rock, and with each of their songs they want to convey a message of love, peace and respect. Piettro is preparing its first album to be released as soon as possible.
POLAND: Łukasz Kuśmierz Weblog XXANAXX - Got U Under XXANAXX is a good example of how to bring together ambitious tunes and not-so-far-away-from-mainstream recognition. Although the band only formed in 2012, this year they have supported Austra and Hurts and played the Selector Festival, amassing a large number of fans in the process. No matter how you describe their music - nu beats or future chillout - one thing is certain, Got U Under is one of the greatest Polish tracks of 2013.
PORTUGAL: Posso Ouvir Um Disco? The Glockenwise - Leeches One of the coolest new Portuguese rock bands, The Glockenwise released their second album in May, which has the same name as this month's track (check out this fun video for it). They won't disappoint those looking for energy and lots of jumping around, and you can tell they have listened to the fathers of this sound, from The Stooges to the Ramones.
PUERTO RICO: Puerto Rico Indie AJ Dávila y Terror Amor - Ohhh (No Te Encantes) Puerto Rico's best-known garage-rock export Dávila 666 called it quits last year after touring the world in support of their second full-length. Founding member AJ Dávila spent little time mourning the band, instead focusing on his solo debut. The project's guest list quickly ballooned to Supernatural-era Santana levels, and Terror Amor became a who's who of Latin American indie-pop. The album, out in January on Nacional Records, will include collaborations with Mexico's Juan Cirerol and Chile's Alex Anwandter among many others. Ohhh (No Te Encantes) features one of Puerto Rico's most beloved singers and fellow MAP alumni Fofé Abreu on backing vocals, as well as Mexico's Jinmy Vitte (of Los Negretes fame) on acoustic guitar.
ROMANIA: Babylon Noise Tony Baboon - Pinecones River Tony Baboon is a tropical one man pop band, with jazz and trip hop influences. The music is made up of a diverse spectrum of carefully thought-out sounds and word combinations that deal with themes such as nature, animals, plants, philosophy, surrealism and utopia.
SCOTLAND: The Pop Cop Call To Mind - A Family Sketch Call To Mind are based in Glasgow but originally from Ardersier, a former fishing village near Inverness with a population of barely 1,000. The influence of the group's upbringing is keenly felt in their music - song titles are sprinkled with Highland reference points, while their lush, smartly-crafted ambient pop paints truly idyllic imagery. At their majestic best, such as A Family Sketch, they give French darlings M83 a run for their money when it comes to atmospheric euphoria. Debut album The Winter Is White is due out in early 2014 through Olive Grove Records.
SOUTH KOREA: Korean Indie Vassline - Overture To Recomposition Vassline has been one of the finest acts in Korea's hardcore scene since it started. Six years after their third full-length, the band finally returned with Black Silence. It was well worth the wait, showing everyone that Vassline is still at the very top. The instrumental piece Overture To Recomposition features MAP alumni Jambinai with their unique use of traditional Korean instruments in part 1, before Vassline bring out the heavy guns in part 2.
SPAIN: Musikorner Astro One Deep - Sinapsis Astro One Deep is a young Galician, now resident in Barcelona. Taking in influences from hip hop and electronic music, he has spent a long time shut away in his bedroom preparing new offerings. Like the emotions he portrays, his style is dynamic and varied; it draws on multiple genres such as funk, jazz, urban and electronica.
UNITED STATES: We Listen For You KO - Golden Gal KO is the brainchild of Indianapolis singer/guitarist Kristin Newborn. She made a splash in early 2011 as frontwoman on the lone, underappreciated LP from indie-pop outfit Slothpop. Golden Gal finds her working within KO's minimalist, two-piece framework, adding depth through layers of vocal loops. Newborn's vocal prowess has earned her opportunities alongside professional symphonies, but the singular intimacy of KO proves equally intoxicating.

O novo single dos Yeasayer, "Glass of The Microscope", tem um vídeo que foi, parte dele, filmado numa área de investigação de uma universidade. E a localização não foi escolhida ao acaso mas porque essa instituição, a Universidade de Leiden, na Holanda, teve, no século XVII, um dos primeiros microscópios desenvolvidos por um autodidata, o holandês Antony van Leeuwenhoek.

ARGENTINA: Zonaindie Juani - Déjame Entrar Juani's involvement with music began during his teenage years and it hasn't stopped since. Songwriter, singer, musician, producer, cultural manager... you name it. In between his multiple projects (one of them being involved with Rosario's biggest independent label Planeta X), Juani managed to pull out a new solo album called La Paz Ciencia (a pun between the words "peace" and "science"), with songs that range from Argentine folk to pop and acoustic rock. Déjame Entrar is our favorite track but you can download the whole thing from the website.
AUSTRALIA: Who The Bloody Hell Are They? White Caves - I've Lost White Caves is the new venture from Melbourne songwriter Darren Cordeux. The former Kisschasy frontman has completely left behind the acoustic teen psyche of 2006 for a much looser sound. I've Lost carves a completely uplifting vibe out of sombre song content. Thanks to some clear-cut production, soaring vocals and a vibe that sounds like MGMT's Andrew VanWyngarden fronting a slacker-pop band, White Caves is lending a new dimension of fun to typical 'pop-jams' right here.
AUSTRIA: Walzerkönig Amere Meander - Something I Am Not Three kindergarten friends form a band and make pop music. Viennese Amere Meander appeared out of nowhere with songs that are sometimes dreamy and sweet, sometimes mysterious and noisy, drawing inspiration from anything from shoegaze to Fleetwood Mac. Always catchy but never unpredictable, Something I Am Not is taken from their debut album To Lead Astray.
BRAZIL: Meio Desligado Karol Conka - Boa Noite Karol Conka, an artist on the rise in the Brazilian hip hop scene, caught the media's attention with her first singles and this year she released her debut album. Boa Noite is one of its best tracks, with a strong beat and African vocal melodies. This song is also included in the FIFA 2014 game, alongside the likes of Nine Inch Nails, Portugal. The Man and Disclosure.
CANADA: Quick Before It Melts Twin Library - There's Always An End Edmonton, Alberta's Twin Library are chemists, experimenting and tweaking the formula that results in their incredibly sophisticated and sonically rich songs. They are prolific recorders and their latest release, They Were Marked As Targets, is their finest collection of unconventional pop yet.
CHILE: Super 45 Bronko Yotte - Bruma After a three-year break, MC and producer Bronko Yotte (Felipe Berríos) gets back on track with a new album, Con Eso Te Digo Todo, released through Dilema Industria. On its 22 tracks, Bronko Yotte offers profound considerations about the system's incongruities, social relations and working life, without losing his sharpness and sense of humor. Bruma features Jamez Manuel (Zonora Point).
COLOMBIA: El Parlante Amarillo La Chiva Gantiva - Para Arriba The story of La Chiva Gantiva began in Brussels with a group of young Colombians who started playing percussion together. Driven by a desire to assert their roots, they started to blend Colombian rhythms with other styles of music such as rock, Afrobeat and funk. Today they are preparing their second album Vivo and we can enjoy, in advance, Para Arriba, a song about inspiration.
DENMARK: All Scandinavian Charlie Campari - Bass Vampires Music is good for much, but in the case of Charlie Campari it's a lifesaver. It's what keeps him off the needle and his first solo release, Moon Cricket EP, tackles his demons and past life on the streets of Copenhagen and several overdoses - three of them fatal - on a backdrop of acidic blues reminiscing Lou Reed, early Beck and The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Check out MAP exclusive download Bass Vampires and the cool video for single Monkey King.
DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: La Casetera Carolina Camacho - Ninfa De Las Aguas Carolina Camacho's voice is truly one of a kind, but she leaves nothing to chance. After many years of intense lyrical training, she's been a part of various local musical acts such as SonAbril and Camacho. Recently she's gone solo, dedicating herself to exploring the worlds of vocal jazz, roots music and feminine empowerment on her newest single Ninfa De Las Aguas. Her first album Atabey is out on October 16.
ECUADOR: Plan Arteria Mamá Soy Demente - Salsa De Marte Mamá Soy Demente, a Guayaquilean duo formed by Dennis Darquea and Carlos Bohórquez, present their new single Salsa De Marte. The track, which plays with the idea of making a rock song with salsa influence, is part of their live album Mamá Soy Demente (En Vivo).
ENGLAND: Drowned In Sound Annie Eve - Elvis (Live at Sofar Birmingham) Sometimes the ache drips down the side of a song. Annie Eve is from north London and has quietly begun building a fanbase. DiS recently saw this impressive young lady headline a sold-out church venue for those pulse-fingering folksters Communion Records. She takes a dab of influence from Bon Iver but casts her own shadow over these gentle sad-songs whilst her voice wows. If you fell under Daughter's spell in 2012/13 then you'll likely be obsessed with Annie Eve in 2014.
ESTONIA: Rada7.ee Imandra Lake - Metsatants Imandra Lake is the new project of Rein Fuks and Eve Komp of Tallinn band Pia Fraus, and follows a similar indie-shoegaze line but it's all fresh and they sing in Estonian. Imandra Lake's sound is noisy and reverberant but less pop and quite tranquil and deep, reaching even the boundaries of the darker side of folk. Metsatants is a new track from their forthcoming second album which continues the same warm sound.
FINLAND: Glue Gim Kordon - Ei Ole Helppoo (early demo version) If J Mascis knew Finnish he would probably sound like the guys in Gim Kordon. This punk-rock trio, the first Finnish-language signing to hip label Soliti, is readying a debut album for next spring. As a first taste here's a raw and noisy early demo of Ei Ole Helppoo. The chorus is very catchy, so don't fear the language and sing along.
GREECE: Mouxlaloulouda Dalot - Ancestors Dalot is the creative alias of Maria Papadomanolaki. Ancestors EP, which was inspired by her grandfather's old photographs, is a reconstruction of fragments, not concerned with the accuracy of images and moments but with opening up the flood of memory mechanics to imagination and transformation. The songs of the EP reveal a cascade of emotions and offer an exploration of texture and atmosphere, as physical instruments merge with subtle electro-acoustic ambience and ethereal turbulences. The haunting title track features Izumi Suzuki's angelic vocals.
INDIA: NH7 Hoirong - Bajrang Bali Guitarist Kamal Singh of erstwhile Bangalore post-rock act Lounge Piranha has struck gold with his newest side-project Hoirong. His debut album, The Resurrection Of The Princess Of Woe And Her Vampire Hound Posse, is not only a mouthful of a title but a grungy, raw record recorded wholly on a laptop mic, spanning from disco-punk to noise-rock, with lo-fi production and a dark sense of humor. The album is Singh's ode to the 90s alternative music scene and definitely wins over fans of dirtier, lo-fi music.
INDONESIA: Deathrockstar Puti Chitara - Sarsaparilla Dream Jakarta singer-songwriter Puti Chitara makes beautiful pop songs with sweet arrangements. She recently won a contest at A Exchange to support the recording of her debut album.
ITALY: Polaroid Green Like July - Moving To The City Produced by A.J. Mogis (Saddle Creek Records) and recorded in the Arc Studios in Omaha, Nebraska, Build A Fire is the third album by Green Like July. Mike Mogis of Bright Eyes and Jake Bellows of Neva Dinova, among others, collaborated on various songs. Green Like July have their roots in American tradition but they can evoke the magic of classic Beatles melodies.
JAPAN: Make Believe Melodies Hisamokuden-Kow. - Our Song Hisamokuden-Kow. calls the relatively relaxed prefecture of Tochigi, a few hours north of Tokyo, home. It is not a place one expects a busy track like Our Song to emerge from, all skittery beats and manipulated vocals tumbling over one another in an almost cartoon fashion. Yet despite how crowded it can get, it retains a catchiness throughout. Not bad, Tochigi.
MALTA: Stagedive Malta FellowFish - The Outlaw Hailing from Valletta, Lyon and New York, FellowFish find themselves on the tiny Mediterranean island of Gozo (Malta's sister island). FellowFish is made up of lead singer and writer Keith Anthony, Christophe Ladret on percussion/drums and Kristian Vella on guitars. Their self-titled debut album, released earlier this year, has a mix of influences, ranging from Al Jarreau's smooth groove to Jeff Buckley's melancholic melodies.
MEXICO: Red Bull Panamérika Caloncho - Palmar Pop-folk flavoured with coconut milk, composed using flip-flops and lying on a hammock by the palm trees. Caloncho comes from the sun-drenched city of Guadalajara and is known for wearing flowery Hawaiian shirts on stage and throwing bananas to the front rows. His debut Fruta EP has some juicy, fruity tunes that combine a vintage Tex-Mex rock 'n' roll from the likes of Ritchie Valens but also squeezes a hint of reggae on the mix. Palmar, first single and video, is an invitation to lay by a topless brunette on a Mexican beach and sway oblivious from the real world.
PERU: SoTB Víctor Hugo - Lima Es Nuestra After the separation of promising band Mi Jardín Secreto, singer Víctor Hugo Vargas began to release his own singles, preparing the way for the arrival of debut album El Primer Disco De Víctor Hugo, available for free from his website. Lima Es Nuestra is about a farewell and other reflections, narrated under the same nostalgic sky of the city where he lives, Lima.
POLAND: Łukasz Kuśmierz Weblog We Draw A - Tears From The Sun So here's autumn again and it's hard to imagine a better anthem for those days than Tears From The Sun. Although the electro-pop duo only appeared on the Polish scene this year, We Draw A founder Pete Levy is known from Indigo Tree, a guitar-oriented band who recorded two LPs and gathered some underground fame from 2009-2011. We Draw A are recording for the Brennnessel label.
PORTUGAL: Posso Ouvir Um Disco? Tape Junk - No Romance Without Finance João Correia, an accomplished singer-songwriter, musician and also a drummer for friends' bands, had his first entry in MAP in December 2011, but as Julie & The Carjackers. This time he visits us with another project, Tape Junk, who recently released the debut album The Good & The Mean, where No Romance Without Finance comes from. The song is backed with this vídeo.
PUERTO RICO: Puerto Rico Indie Bando - Serembé Bando is a new collaborative effort between veteran musicians of Puerto Rico's rock scene, including Agustín Criollo (Astrid Pröll) and Gaby Vidal (ONGO, Similar), focussed on exploring the music of the African diaspora through the classic and revolutionary Afrobeat sound. The group follows Fela Kuti into fertile territories for musical exploration such as bomba and Afro-American funk, inviting us to lose ourselves in dance without shying away from political lyrics that reflect the island's struggles. Bando are currently recording their debut, and have graciously offered us eight-minute scorcher Serembé as a MAP exclusive download.
ROMANIA: Babylon Noise Fine It's Pink - Sky Is No Limit (Intro) Fine It's Pink are new to the music scene but they are growing up fast. Although you can't put a finger on one genre, you can clearly hear post-rock, indie, electronic and strong psychedelic influences. Sky Is No Limit is their statement song, the one that takes you into their world of dreams. You can hear more of this world on SoundCloud.
SCOTLAND: The Pop Cop There Will Be Fireworks - Roots If anyone could be held up as a glowing example of the 'less is more' approach it's There Will Be Fireworks. Four long years after the release of their acclaimed self-titled debut album, Scotland's reclusive princes of guitar-rock reverie have finally announced details of its successor, The Dark, Dark Bright, out on November 25 through Comets & Cartwheels. The album finds the group in a masterful embrace of the grandiose and the graceful - MAP exclusive download Roots falls into the latter category as the tenderest of tender acoustic compositions.
SOUTH KOREA: Korean Indie Tearliner - Strange Intimacy The mid-00s offered Korean indie-pop at its very finest with Tearliner as one of the key artists. Eight years after his first full-length, Tearliner returned with the Grey Garden album last month showcasing a more polished sound than the lo-fi productions he would previously offer. Strange Intimacy is a pretty, slow-paced, dreamy piece perfectly combining the best of both the old and new Tearliner.
UNITED STATES: We Listen For You Jared Bartman - Garden Gate Jared Bartman crafts majestic songs that twist pop elements around a sensitive core stabilized by occasional adventurous flourishes. Bartman's music can act as a backdrop for a smooth listen or something to be studied with the headphones fastened tight. Either way, Bartman is a must-listen for everyone.
VENEZUELA: Música y Más Laura Guevara - El Constructor (live) Laura Guevara is a young woman who has everything - she is a singer, songwriter, artist, actress and audiovisual director, besides having a melodious voice that impressed attendees of last year's Virgen Fest. She currently has a live EP out while she puts the finishing touches to her debut album.
