Michigan singer/songwriter Shortly (aka Alexandria Maniak) signed to Triple Crown Records late last year ahead of her set at the label’s 20th anniversary show. At the time, she had just one single out, “Matthew” (which was recorded by and featured Citizen frontman Mat Kerekes), and now she has released her first single for Triple Crown, “Spare Time.” This one was produced by Hop Along’s Joe Reinhart (who’s also produced albums for Joyce Manor, Modern Baseball, and others), and it starts out as kind of a quiet, Julien Baker-esque song, before turning into louder indie rock towards the end. It’s good stuff, as you can hear for yourself below.
