So excited for MS MR and loving this song!! Lizzy is a friend from the music booking world in Brooklyn and I was stoked to hear on the radio that she’s headlining Alt 98.7’s holiday party, along with The National, Silversun Pickups, Alt-J and more. The whole album, Secondhand Rapture, is very impressive and even has a parental advisory warning ;)
Check out a new track from the John Steel Singers’ new album Everything’s A Thread, which I have been eagerly awaiting for what seems like forever. It’s amazing though, and totally worth the wait. This one’s called Happy Before. These dudes are such amazingly skilled musicians!
Netherfriends has a new style going on these days. They just released this awesome hip-hop mixtape full of sexy chops and beats. It still sometimes features a taste of their older indie rock style too though, and it all works really nicely together. I especially love the way they chopped up Good Vibrations by The Beach Boys on this one called ‘Good Vibes’. Check it out!
I found this one on Soundcloud, just clicking around pretty much at random. It’s great coming across mostly unknown artists with great music on there like that. There’s an extra element of surprise to it. I guess it’s a bit like when our elders took a chance on an unknown record in a discount bin back in the day and landed something dope :D
This is on our house mix at Glasslands and when it came on last night I just loved it so! I just listened to most of their discography today to find it - out in 2009! Violens are fantastic. I saw them live a few years ago at the South Street Seaport in NYC and they put on an awesome, high energy show! I hope to catch them again soon.
A brand new Painted Palms EP just surfaced. It’s really good. So hard to decide which track to post… Maybe I’ll put up another one tomorrow. I really dig their signature reverbed, flanged, chorus, delay etc laden vocals. Whatever concoction of effects that they have going on, it sounds awesome!
