Tuesday: Mt. Mural – Long Lost

Consisting of Adam Kump, Joel Ackley, and Chase Pettyjohn (and occasionally Jessica Kump plus emeritus member Clint Wilkins), Mt. Mural is the indie-rock leaning collective based in Mesa, AZ. Mt. Mural has a healing sonic paint that they will pour all over your worn out velcro dancing shoes, elastic band hips, and even your broken heart. It’s the kind of music you play when your cool friend hands you the AUX cable in the car. It’s also what you would put on if your friend didn’t want to be your friend anymore.
“Long Lost” is the latest single from Mt. Mural’s latest album *Bolt from the Blue*; released in all online stores May 24th, 2019. Check out their latest song “Long Lost” below, if ya love it, vote to hear it again for Song Of The Week at the bottom of the page. 


Wednesday: Maya Spectra – Cerulean Eyes

The Maya Spectra is an Omnigenre band formed by singer, Janel Blanco, and brothers Donald and Julian Peña. An eccentric collective, formed in 2013, the Phoenix-based trio found common ground fusing their love of Electronic, Pop, Hip Hop, Jazz and World music. Composed of a sonic mosaic interspersed with eccentricity and a constant state of reinvention, their explorative journey has driven them to craft their trademark sound.
With the release of their EP, “Music Box” and a critically acclaimed music video, the title track’s visual (dir. Amy West) won Best Music Video at NFFTY, the AMFM Festival and Best Student Short at the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival. With an affinity for self-production, Maya Spectra continues to illuminate their creativity in every aspect of their artist direction. Their newest single “Cerulean Eyes” is available on all major platforms and below for you listening pleasure.

Thursday: Sydney Sprague – F.O.M.O

24 year-old Sydney Sprague is a singer/songwriter based in Phoenix, Arizona. She has been writing and performing songs for 12 years, and has explored a variety of sounds in each of her new releases. Her upcoming EP, “Bad Patchwork” is a mixed bag of recordings she made in 2018, and is inspired by a massive amount of uncertainty, awkward relationships, wasted time, and the fear of missing out. Her songs are refreshingly relatable and full of angst in the best possible way. Phoenix New Times says “her voice is quite close to Stevie Nicks at her prime, but without the edge.”  Preview her song “F.O.M.O” below, if ya love it, vote to hear it again for Song of the Week at the bottom of the page.
