Tracy Shedd - "Kissing and Romancing"

Despite having twenty years of indie rock behind her, Tracy Shedd has escaped my knowledge until now. It's especially surprising because she had Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth) playing drums for her last tour. She's also had music featured on shows like Dawson's Creek and One Tree Hill, while playing shows with artists as diverse as Cyndi Lauper, Cat Lower, and The Magnetic Fields. She's about to release a new album, and her new song, "Kissing and Romancing," hits right in my sweet spot. It's a noisy, lo-fi affair with swirling guitars aplenty, but it's also a great and engaging pop song. It's exceptionally rare to find a song that so perfectly melds those two disparate genres, but Shedd does it perfectly with "Kissing and Romancing." 

You can watch the video for "Kissing and Romancing" below. Tracy Shedd's new album, The Carolinas, will be out digitally September 20 on Fort Lowell Records. You can pre-order the album over at Bandcamp. The physical version of the album will be out on Science Project Records and can be pre-ordered here.
