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.
Friday March 21st, 2014 17:56 Odesza: Sun Models (ft. Madelyn Grant)
Well now that my NCAA bracket is all but done for (still not sure why I felt Syracuse would lose in the first round…), I am going to focus on music today while my peers give cheers. First up? Odesza’s newest single “Sun Models.” It’s for the most part an instrumental dance track featuring some distorted vocals provided by Madelyn Grant. I’m definitely feeling some Delorean vibes here, which coming from me is a high compliment. Check out “Sun Models” below.
Wednesday March 19th, 2014 19:47 Nickel Creek: 21st of May
I’m loving this slow trickle release of the new Nickel Creek album due out this spring. It really gives me enough time to properly experience and ultimately enjoy each tune separately. This track, titled “21st of May,” is the first Sean Watkins led song we’ve heard from A Dotted Line and although there isn’t much to it, the song features everything you’d expect from the band: beautiful harmonized vocals and some amazing finger picking. Check out “21st of May” below. Yehaw George Bailey…

This morning, tUnE-yArDs released the first track off of her highly anticipated third album Nikki Nack due out this May. “Water Fountain” is extremely high energy and a lot of fun. I was a big fan of her last effort Whokill and cannot wait to hear what she has up her sleeve this time around. Check it out below.
Tuesday March 18th, 2014 10:02 The Colurs: Julia & Easy To Love
I can’t believe it took me two years to find the greatness that is The Colurs. Thanks to Spotify (follow me?), I am now up with the times. According to the band’s Facebook page, they are currently at work on a full length debut album, and I must say if said album sounds anything like The Colurs EP, it will be a breakout hit for sure. Check out my “Julia,” and “Easy To Love” below.

Sunday March 16th, 2014 05:00 Bipolar Sunshine: Love More Worry Less
It got up to 50 degrees in my city this weekend. I have a theory that living in a cold weather city makes me appreciate warm things better. That feeling when you walk into a crowded bar after wandering around in 10 degree winter weather. That first day of Spring. If I lived in LA and it was 50 degrees I would be like it is cold as shit out right now. But no, I live somewhere where it’s cold half the year and 50 degrees is amazing. So…suck it California.
On these kind of days I like to listen to music that matches the weather.
I don’t know Adio Marchant, but I feel like he knows me. With lyrics like “Eyes looking like you had fight with the rain,” it’s like the man is making music just for my ears. He writes straight up ballads. I’d do a disservice trying to sum up how good these are songs are with my terrible writing. So just listen and enjoy the nice weather.
