#NewMusicMonday: “Rally the Troops” by Lainee

It’s another #NewMusicMonday! Today we’re very proud to release Rally the Troops, the new EP by alt-folk/dreampop artist Lainee.

The likes of Stevie Nicks, Kate Tucker and Lana Del Rey are recognizable influences on Burlington, Ontario-based artist Lainee (Melanie Lynn Alexander), who makes a defining and emblematic impression on her debut EP for Maisonneuve Music, Rally the Troops. Her grace of form and narrative authority are equally engaging on this half album’s worth of songs following visceral themes of isolation, removed disposition and an almost telescopic objectivity.

Rally the Troops is a collection of enticing and intricate little puzzle boxes that are as much exquisite stream-of-consciousness dream pop as they are a feast for the famined thinker.

Rally the Troops by Lainee is available now on Spotify, Bandcamp, iTunes and other fine digital retailers.
