Mixtape | July 2014

[T]his is my mixtape for the month of July, there was so much good music this month, I couldn’t even keep this to 20 songs. Great new tunes from Savage favorites Chuck Prophet, Blake Mills, The Rural Alberta Advantage, and even a few we never thought we’d like and we were totally surprised. So hit […]

New Music | Chuck Prophet – Wish Me Luck

[C]huck Prophet’s background is vast, and lengthy, and he’s recently announced a 13th studio album to add to his own lore. His most recent release, Temple Beautiful, was a critical success, and it seems as though he’s looking to build off of that. Upcoming record, Night Surfer, and first single, “Wish Me Luck,” a sort […]

New Music | Field Report – Wings

[B]ack in 2012 there was a lot of hubbub over Wisocnsin’s Field Report, I saw them at SXSW and they totally amazed me. Chris Porterfield’s background, vocals and songwriting gave the band instant gravitas, they toured relentlessly and blew us all away with their tunes. Having written one of my favorite records that year, I […]

New Music | Harriet – Ten Steps

[Y]et another tune has surfaced from Los Angeles band Harriet’s new upcoming record “It’s Totally Cool, I Wouldn’t Even Worry About It.” Everything we’ve heard from this record to date has this interesting tone, it’s nearly cinematic, with multi-layered sonic moments that seemingly come from every angle, it all works so well with the video […]

Mixtape | Summer Jams of June 2014

[T]his is the first month I’ve tried this, so it’s kind of test, but I’m looking for the best way to bring back monthly mixtapes, and maybe I’ve found it. Seeing as giving away mp3’s are a thing of the past, we’ve got a delightful stream of music we dug from the last month. If […]

New Music | The Rural Alberta Advantage – Terrified

[I] couldn’t be more excited than to find out that Toronto’s Rural Alberta Advantage was releasing a new record titled, Mended with Gold, September 30th and this blistering single, “Terrified,” was released as well. To say that the new record from The RAA is highly anticipated is putting it lightly, this band is one of […]

New Music | Soft Swells – Floodlights

[S]oft Swells are named after the bunny hill of waves that beginners use to learn on, and aside from the obvious connection the music takes to the easy breezy California surf vibe, the band has continually been growing up, maturing, and moving on to the big boy waves. “Floodlights,” just feels that much more sophisticated, […]

New Music | Filligar – Motor Shine

[C]hicago’s Filligar is prepping a brand new single that I’m pretty excited about, “Motor Shine,” a fresh sound for a band that might need a break, they’ve been touring relentlessly for the last 8 years, and specifically the last few after gaining big press from all over with their 2010 effort The Nerve, and their […]

Video Premiere | Ron Gallo – Fine Diners & Fine Whiners

[R]on Gallo might be more known for his days as the front man for the Philadelphia based rock and roll band, Toy Soldiers, whose release last year, The Maybe Boys, was one of our favorites. So when we heard Gallo was releasing his own solo record, we were more than intrigued. Then we pressed play, […]

New Music | Trampled by Turtles – Wild Animals

[O]ne thing I was not expecting when I first heard this new Trampled by Turtles tune was for Har Mar Superstar to appear in it, although geography would probably assist on that one, but the other is just how much this new sound for TxT is like Band of Horses. The new tune in question […]
