Today we're premiering the second installment of our video sessions with Chicago's Valaska. The Windy City act first caught the attention of Aaron Marsh of Copeland and Marsh produced Valaska's latest record Natural Habitat. Watch the video for the title track in the replies.

Chicago native, Valaska, aka Dave Valdez, is releasing his first video single for "In Voids" with us today. This is the first of three installments that we'll have in this series. Valaskas Natural Habitat, released on April 9th, was produced by Copelands Aaron Marsh at The Vanguard Room in Lakeland, FL. In Voids is a song that is all about reflecting on where one has been in their life, says Dave Valdez, and just seeing who they are as a person and not liking what they are seeing. Watch the video in the replies.

Under The Gun has another album stream today - this time premiering the new Valaska album, Natural Habitat, here. The album was produced by Aaron Marsh.

When Aaron Marsh puts his stamp of approval on a project, that's when you know you should pay attention. In the case of Chicago's Valaska, the moniker for the Windy City's Dave Valdez, you should get to know this guy...and fast. Channeling the likes of Analog Rebellion, Sleeping At Last, and Deas Vail, Valaska brings a ukelele and electronic laden track that's got lots of different feels to it. Listen to the single "Golden Age" on his AP.net profile or listen in the replies.

I'd be sad to wake up and find all of my cherries are charred or they're rotted to ruin.

Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" is a moving classic that everyone can find meaning in and enjoy. Well, we are lucky enough to bring you Valaska's haunting spin on the classic as an early Christmas present. You can stream/download the song off his AP.net profile. Let us know what you think in the replies and happy holidays!

Valaska's Self Titled EP is now available on iTunes. Once again, it was produced by Aaron Marsh and if you dig Copeland, Jeremy Larson, Sleeping At Last and Deas Vail this is right up your alley. If you need any more convincing head over to his AP.Net profile to stream the beautiful track, "Maverick" or check out my review here.

Valaska's new Self Titled EP is streaming on his myspace. The record was produced by none other than Aaron Marsh. You can also buy it for $5 on his bandcamp. This is one album you don't want to overlook today.
