New London singer-songwriter Daphne Lee Martin has shared a new song in her recent cover series. This time she takes on “Wicked Game” by Chris Isaak with western Mass singer-songwriter Jonah Tolchin.
Martin comments on the cover series: “This cover is the third release in the second series of covers between albums, both to give my audience something fun and new while I’m developing the originals with my band, and as a tip of the hat to other artists I love. Playing other people’s songs is definitely a way to throw yourself out of your comfort zone, learning new chord voicings and progressions that you might never have reached for in your own knowledge, and a great excuse to push limits of time, key and instrumentation to make it your own.”
Martin is currently working on her fifth album of original music, Scared Fearless. Set for Spring 2018 release, it’s up for pre-order at GoFundMe with lots of bonus goodies.
Daphne Lee Martin’s last album release was 2015’s Fall On Your Sword.

While CT Scramble does it’s best job to report the new and noteworthy music coming out of our wonderful state, sometimes it’s difficult to find the time to catch up and listen to it all!
This past November, CT indie musicians were particularly prolific, releasing new music, live videos, or simply getting their music uploaded on more accessible streaming services like Spotify.
Fortunately, we here at Scramble also want to provide an accessible compilation of all that new stuff that comes out on a daily basis. Check out below for a recap of some of the new music we have covered this November.
Samurai Sword has shared their first new piece of material since March, entitled “Needle, Red Thread”. As wanted from Trumbull guitarist Josh Pavel, the single is a stunningly textural, airtight, nylon guitar-driven piece. Pavel’s remarkable fingerpicking technique is forefront, splashing in bits of piano and a soft layer of percussion.
On their Facebook page, they hinted at a new release this winter.
Listen to “Needle, Red Thread” by Samurai Sword:
CT/MA electronic grit-pop act Non Adult has shared the final installment of their EP trilogy. This one’s entitled The Gay Science // Joyful Wisdom and follows May’s grainy Guide to Life and March’s dreamy Dirty Minds Prepare to Die.
The latest from Danbury native Jonathan Zonenshine offers another concise showcase of Non Adult’s mood-setting capabilities, sweeping the spectrum from personal to profound. Reverb-drenched guitars, daedal rhythms, and undulating synths paint a cobalt melancholia any listener can vibe to.
