Upcoming artist Nick Checo blends acoustic pop/folk with reggae influences
Get excited for June when the new Empire Of The Sun album, Ice on the Dune, finally drops. I haven’t been able to sit still since I saw a trailer for the album a few months ago, and now there is a music video! Check out the video for the killer electro-duo’s new single, “Alive.” [...]
This new track by long time Atlanta star Rocko brings a unique twist to southern rap’s recent maximalist streak by toning the frequency down and creating a woozy, ambient groove. Future’s practically whispers his auto-tune drenched hook for a perfectly faded effect. The original version of this track drew a lot of controversy over a [...]
New single from their upcoming album, Tales of a Grass Widow, dropping on May 28th.
NEW DAFT PUNK! In another month the new Daft Punk album, Random Access Memories, will finally arrive and everyone’s summer will be filled with fresh french tunes to boogie down. To help stave off your salivating lips, the first song has been leaked (now released by the band) and features Nile Rodgers of the 70′s [...]
This unreleased track was originally meant for the album. Its a hidden gem because of the thick, textured beat by producer Canai Finch, that’s both soulful and aggressive masterfully. Standout verses from both Kendrick and Jeezy. Kendrick Lamar – Westside Right On Time (feat. Young Jeezy)
The highly anticipated debut album Amok was released last week by supergroup Atoms for Peace. With RHCP bass player Flea and Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke, we really hope this is the first album of many. The first music video, for the single Ingenue, features Yorke in some sweet shoes dancing on stage to some very [...]
As I’m getting ready to go to Spain (leaving in 4 days, yay for Camp College!), this song has been on my mind…
“These lips, Can’t wait to taste your skin baby” Boom! Sex Appeal
This Scandinavian musician makes some really cool music without anyone else to slow him down. Utilizing a looping pedal, he creates multiple beats, guitar and base lines, and backup vocals to support whatever he’s doing at the time. Check it out if you’re into cool things.
Finn Riggins are based out of the lovely town of Boise, Idaho and just came out with a great new EP epitomized by this catchy title track “Benchwarmers.”
Mountain Man is an all-female three-piece that formed a couple of years ago at Bennington College in Vermont. They create chillingly beautiful harmonies, some with sparse guitar and others a capella.
Like a really cool sunset in Garden of Gods.
Beach House where have you been? Oh making an awesome new album? That’s cool I guess…
Alabama Shakes new album just came out today. It goes hard.

This brand new British band has all the cool funky style of the 70′s with my favorite chill-wave beats to back it up. If you like this song “House” off their new album World, You Need a Change of Mind (Modular Records 2012), make sure to check out their video “Gee Up” and watch all the way through. They have a tendency to make fun of the indie music industry, and thereby themselves, in all their MVs and the parody is brilliant.
I want to go to there.
As I began to shuffle through my music for a song of the day, this song lingered, and I couldn’t put it to rest quite yet. Featured on the Drive soundtrack, this tune has an intensity to it that takes over my brain every time I listen to it.The song starts with an overpowering pulse, and then the vocals come in and are INSANE, all cooled off with the Lovefoxx chorus (lead singer of Brazillian CSS). Kavinsky is a French electronic artist, and he has toured with Daft Punk and SebastiAn to name a few. If you haven’t seen Drive yet, I’d also recommend checking it out, it wasn’t what I was expecting, it was so much more. Click the link to enjoy.
Perhaps I have a soft spot for paper cutouts, shadow puppetry, and animal people, but this video from Wye Oak’s latest album Civilian has captured my heart.
Come down to New Orleans for a special Fat Tuesday edition of “Song of the Day”
Sort of a folksy Otis Redding, what else do I need to say?
Described as “thrash” music, I can imagine Kisses being bumped out of some sweaty Miami club on a hot summer’s eve, perfect for this snowy February night.
