New Music Tuesday!!! | Buzz Blog
We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

New Music Tuesday!!!

It's been a while since we've heard from Stellarstarr*, the indie art rockers who bounced on the scene in 2003 with tasty hits like "My Coco." I still love that song. The NYC group returns to today with Civilized, an album that has vocalist/guitarist Shawn Christensen moving out of his low-register comfort zone and singing in a higher pitch. Take a listen to the difference six years can make, first with a song off their self-titled debut followed by a new track.

In The Walls - Stellastarr*

Freak Out - Stellastarr*

Also out today, American Central Dust, the new full-length by alt-country greats Son Volt who will be playing Snowbird's Mountain Music Festival this weekend. Check tomorrow's City Weekly for an interview with band founder Jay Farrar.

Down to the Wire - Son Volt

Additional artists with new releases out today: Scottish up-and-comers We Were Promised Jet Packs, Jurassic 5's Chali 2na, 80s sensations Berlin (playing The Depot tomorrow night), Billy Boy on Poison (signed to Kiefer Sutherland's label).

Stop by your local record store and pick up something, why don't you?
