Look at Your Hands – tUnE-yArDs

Tune-Yards haven’t released an album since 2014 but they’re back with the incredibly energetic, “Look at Your Hands.” The song features an 80’s style beat with Merrill Garbus’ voice robotically tap dancing over top. She actually used an MPC to sample her own voice and…

Wolfcat – Still Woozy

Still Woozy is back with a new single called, “Wolfcat.” It’s as trippy as their last jam and definitely worth a place on your afterwork chill out playlist. Not only is the music ethereally spacey, but every one of their singles has the nuttiest artwork….

Much like “Unkinder” on their debut album Galore, it relies on infectious rhythm carried almost entirely by the masterful percussion work. Whereas Thumpers’ songs are usually more upbeat and cheerful, “Carmel” has a much deeper and emotional feel to it.

So I started listening to the debut album, “17” from XXXTENTACION with extremely low expectations. I was completely wrong about what I was getting into. I intended just to dip my toes in to the new music of this artist who I have heard quite…

Parachute – Buffalo Killers

I’m so happy to see new music today from Ohio’s own Buffalo Killers. These boys rock and roll with the best of them. If you’ve never listened to Buffalo Killers, think, Black Keys, J Roddy Walston, southern rockish ol’ boys. Their new single, “Parachute,” just…

Painted Ruins – Grizzly Bear

Grizzly Bear is one of those groups that just can’t be compared. They are impeccably talented, sometimes almost too much so, sending chills down your bones with their instrumentation and vocal arrangements. They recently released their first album since 2012 and it is truly a…

Dark Red – Steve Lacy

Steve Lacy is an incredible musician with an interesting story. Forgive me for sharing this so late in the game. If you’ve already had the opportunity to listen to him, I envy you as I only discovered him the other day. Steve is a member…
