Mixtape | January 2017

I got out of the habit of collecting / curating and distributing mixtapes back when mp3’s became harder and harder to come by. Since then, I’ve been putting together yearly song dumps that are a great catch-all to keep up with all the new music that comes our way. As for 2017, I’ve set a goal of setting up a monthly playlist, and curating it. So if you’re looking for some new jams, lend an ear and give a listen to our January 2017 playlist, and we’ll reconvene in 28 days. Hope you enjoy.

New Music | The Octopus Project – Wrong Gong

Very excited to share with you fellow music lovers the amazing new single, “Wrong Gong,” from The Octopus Project. The track is the first to be released from the Austin, TX band’s upcoming album, Memory Mirror, out April 7, 2017 via Robot High School. The quartet have been creating their unique brand of electronic, dance-rock for fifteen years and have released five full-length albums, all packed with enough psychedelic sounds and digital loops to keep you swirling around the room in a blissed-out state for decades. “Wrong Gong” keeps the noisy fun going strong with a heavy beat and what seems like a thousand different instruments mixed…

New Music | The Mites – Asphalt Ocean

I am super happy to share with you fine folks the great new song,”Asphalt Ocean,” from San Antonio, TX band The Mites. It is the title-track from their third EP which will be released as a 7″ via Painter Man Records in the near future. The influences of nineties rockers like Juliana Hatfield and Lush are present in the track’s hard driving guitar chords and shoegaze vocals. With that said, “Asphalt Ocean,” isn’t simply a throwback to that early sound that dominated MTV’s 120 Minutes back in the day. After listening to their first two EPs (you can listen to/buy them in…

New Music | Lowly – Prepare the Lake

We’re only a few days into 2017 and incredibly I have already found a candidate for song of the year. “Prepare the Lake” is the latest single released off the forthcoming debut album, Heba, from a new Danish band called Lowly. The track kicks in right away with frenetic drums layered over shimmery guitar chords and synths that swirl around beautiful vocals with enough energy to instantly shock your ears into submission. It is the perfect mixture of restlessness and calm, which makes the song extremely addictive. I believe I’m already on my fiftieth listen. Band members Nanna Schannong (lead vocals, guitar), Soffie Viemose (lead vocals, laptop), Kasper Staub (synthesizers), Thomas…
