Twenty One Pilots pretty much occupied the top spot on innumerable playlists this summer, no? But with the Tear In My Heart (SoySauce Remix) the top spot is pretty much cemented as one of the most memorable tracks of the year. Or at least I think so. And if you haven’t already check out Twenty One Pilots’ Blurryface LP do so, it’s out now courtesy of Fueled By Ramen. Enjoy. Peace. Read more »

Kwamie Liv sets fire to the night sky with her latest track Pleasure This Pain feat. Angel Haze. This isn’t for the faint of heart, no puppy love ish here. And for those who bare the wounds of love lost, love found and love won will feel right at home inside this groove. This one is like pushing a big body Cadillac out into the furthest reaches of night driving therapy. Pleasure This Pain is the heart stuff love is made of. Peace. Read more »

Computer Magic drops the new single Be Fair and it bristles and shimmers like only Computer Magic can. Claudius Mittendorfer handled production duties and my ear, well they handled the chillin’ like a villain duties. The track is one of many from the debut Davos LP out October 16th courtesy of Channel 9 Records / Kolbalt. Peace. Read more »

la luz | believe my eyes

 
La Luz always makes me want to pack up my shit and leave all other music behind. Makes me want to take an early retirement and get to chillin’ on a remote South American beach and drink San Miguel. And my adoration mostly has to do with the chill vibe (and mostly Shana Cleveland’s pale moon vocals) they collectively cast off. Recently the “ladies four” premiered a skulking-around-the-dark-edges track titled Believe My Eyes. And even though the track didn’t make it onto the band’s forthcoming Weirdo Shrines LP, its been dreaming of the light of day, and guess what? Well, it means that it’s rise and shine time for this hauntingly beautiful little number. Makes me happy. Read more »

amy bezunartea | oh the things a girl must do
 
Amy Bonaparte lays bare the whole canon of modern feminism with only her dulcet voice and sparse guitar accompaniment offering the wryly potent song Oh The Things A Girl Must Do. Alright, maybe I’m overstating a wee much, or maybe not Clevertheless, (made up word, but so apt!) the song touches on the super awesome complex stew that is womanhood. The song is just one of many on Ms. B’s forthcoming New Villain release courtesy of Kiam Records. The album drops September 25th and if you’re a fan of vinyl, the first 100 pressings are going to be red wax. Now, I’m wondering is there a connection between the color red and the title Oh The Things A Girl Must Do? Where’s The Donald when you need him? That’s all I got. Peace. Read more »

The POTUS has pretty good taste, but regardless if you’re a fan or not we kinda already knew that. I mean really look at his beautiful First Lady soulmate. And if like me, you may have wondered about what The Man is listening to as he helms the the great big steam engine known as the U.S. Well wonder no more. Read more »

son little | lay down

 
The artist Son Little (Aaron Earl Livingston) makes the old new again with a graceful ability and a voice like southern moonshine brewed in the olden speakeasies of Philly and wherever else this talented man has set up his musical still. Mr. Son Little is a shape shifter of sorts and once his ears have grazed a locale he breathes in the flavor and makes it his own. Peep his Lay Down track and feel exactly what all the fuss is all about. It’ll make you want more of his soulful moon stuff.

So let the Sam Cooke and Otis Redding comparisons come and go, it’s okay. Because this talented artist, with guitar in hand, is carving out a legacy all his own. And like the aforementioned moonshine the affects are tipsy and dangerously inviting. Look for his self-titled debut, it drops October 16th courtesy of ANTI- Records. Peace. Read more »

Young Rival adds a distinct rock edge to your summer playlist with their southern rock punk track Interior Light. This offering sounds like a mashup of The War On Drugs, The Strokes and Of Montreal. Not bad musical references if you ask me. The Interior Light single is out now courtesy of Paper Bag Records. Look for the album bearing the same name to drop October 16th. You can check out the track and track-list after the jump. Peace. Read more »
