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 […]

New Music | Bahamas – Stronger Than That

[I]’m really digging the vibe on the new track from Afie Jurvanen’s project Bahamas. It’s soulful tune, with a bit of a Jackson Browne feel, the lyrics are focused around believing in someone who doesn’t believe in themselves, and encouraging them to be better, and well who doesn’t need a pick me up? Perfect driving […]

New Music | Denver – Carry On

[D]enver, the band, is bringing forth another record this summer, Rowdy Love, and we’re right around the corner from its July 15th release. They just released another track from the record, and it’s a glowing, 70’s inspired folk rock track written about Mike Elias’ marital issues, and his deciding on whether to run away from […]

New Music | Goodnight, Texas – A Bank Robber’s Nursery Rhyme

[N]ew music from our pals Goodnight, Texas, the cross-country collaboration from San Franciscan Avi Vinocur and Carolinan Patrick Dyer Wolf. “A Bank Robber’s Nusery Rhyme,” evokes that same turn of the century Americana they had focused on on A Long Life of Living, an album that we absolutely adored. And with more of that bucolic, […]

Video | Ages and Ages – Divisionary (Do the Right Thing)

[I] simply can not help having to post this. After listening to it multiple times in a row, I thought I’d eek out a few minutes and put this up, because it’s just better to share videos like this. Ages and Ages Divisionary record is one of my favorites for this year, and this song […]

New Music | The Rosebuds – In My Teeth

[I]’m pretty excited that North Carolina’s The Rosebuds are at it again, carefully composing another classic sounding folk-rock tune in “In My Teeth,” a tune that slowly slides itself deep inside your head, after a few listens, you have no idea where the time went, but you know you enjoyed it. It’s got a semblance […]
