Peace Out – Jay Som

Jay Som has quickly become one of my favorite artists of the last 5 years. Led by Melina Duterte, her brand of grungy dream pop has evolved immensely but never strayed too far from her roots since the bands first album Turn Into and her…

James Blake’s fourth album, the just released Assume Form,┬áis a culmination and really the first intersection of his solo and production careers. No better example of this than the track “Mile High” that features Travis Scott and Metro Boomin’. As you may know, James Blake…

Goodbye, for now

As you’ve probably noticed, there has been radio silence on our end for a few months now. After exploring everything from writing to podcasting, we discovered a few things about how we listen to and enjoy music. Turns out, none of those ways were conducive…

We’re taking a break from the podcast during this holiday week, so I’ll fill you in on one of my favorite songs from this week, “No Static” by LA synth-pop-funk outfit Young & Sick. Readers might remember our fawning over their SXSW performance in March…

Lately – Wet

A stunning return to form for a group once destined for indie pop greatness, “Lately” is the definitive song by Brooklyn group Wet. This is easily their best song since 2014’s “Don’t Wanna Be Your Girl.” After a disappointing debut LP and several recent singles,…

Tonight – Holiday Mountain

From here in Austin, Texas rises Holiday Mountain, an electronic duo with a distinct sound not far removed from the likes of Santigold and MGMT. Their new album Miles and Miles is a huge step forward for the group and the song “Tonight” might be…

Love Like Waves – Friendly Fires

We usually don’t cover more popular artists on here but we’re going to make an exception for Friendly Fires. After taking a nearly 7 year hiatus, the brit pop group is back with the infectiously dancy “Love Like Waves.” Carrying over some tropical elements from…

If you can get past one of the most absurd names for an artist we’ve ever seen, you’ll probably be floored by what you hear. This British female duo makes a uniquely cheery yet dark flavor of electro-pop exemplified in their new single “Falling Into…

Love Me Right – Amber Mark

Using the perfect combination of silky beats and piano, Amber Mark has produced about as good of a modern R&B song as you can get with “Love Me Right.” The vocals and vocal backing are exceptional throughout the song; the chorus features a sultry backing…
