I like where your head is at tUnE-yArDs… This new track from her upcoming album Nikki Nack (May 5th) is a bit of a deviation from “Water Fountain,” but as some old fart once said, “Variety is the spice of life.” Check out “Wait For A Minute” above, and have yourself the most pleasant of Thursdays.
Wednesday April 9th, 2014 18:11 RAC: Ready For It (ft. St. Lucia)
We had the pleasure of hosting RAC at a small venue in Boston a few years back (#humblebrag) as he was one of our favorite artists at the time. Since then, he has honed his craft and become a mainstay in the world of pop and remixes. For good reason too, as he is one talented mofo… seriously, this guy spits out ridiculously catchy pop songs and remixes that often rival the original material. Do yourself a favor and check out RAC’s newest creation, a two part album called Strangers. Below you will find my favorite track from said album. Can’t… stop… listening…
Tuesday April 8th, 2014 06:59 Wet: Wet
The little I can find about Wet tells me they must be new to the scene, however there is nothing novice about their sound. To the contrary, I expected to find a slew of albums from such a polished sounding group. The band’s lone self titled EP is nothing but highlights, so strap in. Seriously, give it a full on listen and bow in the greatness of Wet.
Monday April 7th, 2014 20:48 Panama: Strange Feeling
I’m loving me some new Panama. The band released its sophomore EP last month, and it has since become a personal highlight of my 2014 thus far. What I can only describe as smooth funk, Panama’s sound is infectious and fun. Check out “Strange Feeling” below and a remix from Classixx after the jump.
Friday April 4th, 2014 16:41 How To Dress Well: Repeat Pleasure
Props to our friends (well not really friends…it’s more like stalking…since I love them and I don’t think they know we exist. Ok that got creepy…back to the music) at All Things Go for having some fun at the expense of the super soulful serious How To Dress Well. Starting a campaign for #howtolooksad based on his latest tune.
It’s true Tom Krell does look pretty forlorn in the image coupled with song. He shouldn’t though because this song is freaking great. Based on his last song, we are getting setup for a pretty amazing album coming to our ears in June.
You keep being you Tom.
Tuesday April 1st, 2014 20:19 Carousel: Let’s Go Home
You know what’s better than Winter? Spring. Yes sir, I am jumping up for joy for this lovely 40 degree weather. And while I am sure we will get a blizzard tomorrow I am going to bask in some summer song. Carousel’s Let’s Go Home is a perfect fit. Also, these guys originated in Boston! Shout out Berklee. So spin it up.
If you – like me – are basking in this nice Boston weather you should come out and see Carousel, Cherub & Probcause live tomorrow at the Paradise. Take a HubWay there or since it’s nice out, freaking walk. Buy ticket in advance here.
Tuesday March 25th, 2014 14:31 London Grammar: Devil Inside
Game of Thrones fans might recognize this little number from the most recent season 4 trailer. “Devil Inside” is a haunting take on the classic made famous by INXS, and London Grammar nails it. Check out the cover below, and button up… winter is coming.
Friday March 21st, 2014 18:17 Ray LaMontagne: Airwaves
Ray LaMontagne (a.k.a the smoothest man on earth) is back with some new music. Currently preparing his fifth album Supernova, (produced by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys) LaMontage released the second single from said album earlier this week. Seriously, he brings being smooth and groovy to a whole new level. It’s actually a little unfair how good he is. I’m starting to resent you Ray… but it’ll pass. Check out the delectable “Airwaves” below, and look for Supernova later this May.
