Eagle I Stallian

After experience in the field of heavy rock, Montreal-based group Eagle I Stallian dove into the world of electronic, bringing elements of trance, house, combining into something different than the standard house or EDM fare.

Take their new single “Between Dreams” a big, pulsating house track that spans a wide range of feelings and emotions, taking time to build its hypnotic electronic soundscape before the clear cut vocals of Brandon Mignacca step in and take it one step further.

Stream the original mix of the track below, and if you like what you hear the song is available to snag over at iTunes.

Premiere: Kamron Bahani – “La Leggenda”

By Will Oliver, August 9th 2016

Kamron Bahani's - Serpenti Accordo EP

The name Kamron Bahani may be new to you, although if you’re familiar with this blog than the name may ring a bell. Kamron used to go by Kuhlamity, but after a few years away from the game he’s dropped the moniker and is now going by his full name. A rebirth if you will.

He’s returning with a brand new EP titled Serpenti Accordo on August 23 that will act as his official return to the game. But for now, we have the official honor of premiering his brand new single “La Leggenda,” taken from the EP.

Sitting at a compact and tidy runtime of 2:18, “”La Leggenda” moves at a brisk speed with Kamron’s ridiculous fast rhymes that hold no prisoners. Immediately you notice a sense of growth towards the second half with some of his best production yet, with memorable lines that are timely enough to reference things such as Pokemon Go.

This is an evolution from Kuhlamity in every way, he’s emerged, bigger, strong, and better than ever.

Stream “La Leggenda” below and stay tuned for more news about the EP and some live shows.

[new]: Sam Seeger – “What’s Happening”

By Will Oliver, August 4th 2016

Sam Seeger - What's Happening

Fellow Rockland County resident Sam Seeger has returned and blessed us with another great new song titled “What’s Happening” that is too good to ignore.

The track runs by briskly at two-minutes in length, delivering classic rock vibes and vicious guitar riffs that are complimented with the work of New Myths‘ Rosie Slater behind the drum kit. The chilled out, almost stoned vocals work well alongside the guitar solos that are just waiting to break free.

You can buy “What’s Happening” for just $1 over at Sam’s bandcamp right now, and get a taste via the stream directly below.

[new]: Local Natives – “Past Lives”

By Will Oliver, April 29th 2016

Local Natives

It’s been three years since we last heard new music from Local Natives, but today that changed with the surprise release of a brand new song named “Past Lives.” The band premiered it last night at a surprise show in Los Angeles, and today they released a stream to the rest of the world.

“Past Lives” features some of those ever-familiar and delightful vocals, keeping that familiar sound while also taking a big leap forward in terms of scope and incorporation of some new elements that create a much bigger sound. This song will satisfy all of the bands fans, delivering big harmonies and percussion, all under one big shiny package.

We can only assume that “Past Lives” will be included on their eventual third album, which hopefully will be released sometime this year. For now, “Past Lives’ will certainly hold us over.

Enjoy it below along with a message that Local Natives’ Taylor Rice provided along with the song:

Noah Chenfeld – “Give You What I Want”

By Will Oliver, April 4th 2016

Noah Chenfeld

New Yorker Noah Chenfeld first caught our attention in early 2014, with his very Strokes-esque single “Get Lost.” A few years have since past, and Chenfeld has returned with a rather beautiful mature offering by the name of “Give You What I Want.”

There’s a loungey jazz quality to “Give You What I Want” that instantly clicks and is smooth sailing all the way. Everything about the recording is a mature step in the right direction, from his vocals to the welcome saxophone appearance towards the end of the song.

Excited to see what else Chenfeld has waiting for is in the near future. For now, enjoy the stream of “Give You What I Want” below, along with a live performance that he did as a part of Kurrent Music’s “Dorm Sessions” below that.

[new]: Seratones – “Sun”

By Will Oliver, April 1st 2016

Seratones

Louisiana soul-rockers Seratones will release their anticipated debut album Get Gone on May 6th via Fat Possum Records. Today they’ve shared the energetic and sun-soaked new single,”Sun.”

Imagine Alabama Shakes pissed off and playing the diviest bar imaginable. There’s an unshakable urgency to the main guitar riff of “Sun” that hits hard as all hell and doesn’t look back for even a second. Those who claim that rock and roll are dead clearly just need to look a little bit harder.

Stream “Sun” below and check up Seratones upcoming tour dates, which include supporting dates for The Dandy Warhols in New York later this month.

[new]: The Last Shadow Puppets – “Aviation”

By Will Oliver, March 16th 2016

The Last Shadow Puppets - Aviation

With new album Everything You’ve Come To Expect looming, The Last Shadow Puppets are back in full force. Months ago they gave us our first taste, the jarring and seedy late-night scuzz anthem that is “Bad Habits.” Then a few days ago they unleashed the music video for the experimental title track, which they told me was their favorite song off the album when I interviewed them (which is coming very, very soon). Both releases were definitely different from what fans were expecting after eight years of silence, causing some listeners to be worried.

I’ve had the album for a little over a month now (as prep for the interview), so many friends and fans have been vocal to me about their concern with the new album as a whole as the two tracks weren’t what they wanted. I assured them all that the material shared so far worked much better in context with the rest of the album, and that the best was yet to come.

This morning they surprised us again with yet another music video, this time for the opening track and stone cold stunner, “Aviation.” It’s been an instant favorite since my very first spin, fighting with “Miracle Aligner” (the second track) as my favorite song from the album. It doesn’t take long for it to take flight with those stirring strings and a seductive as all hell guitar riff. The was originally meant to be a solo song for Kane, but thankfully he was willing to share with Mr. Turner, creating one of the finer opening tracks you’re bound to find on any record this year.

Check out the music video for “Aviation” below (created by Saam Farahmand / Black Sheep Studios), which features the guys digging their own graves on the beach, a companion piece of sorts to the “Everything You’ve Come To Expect” video, featuring the same character played by Michelle Dawley.

Enjoy it below.

Flaunt – “Restraint”

By Will Oliver, February 21st 2016

Flaunt - Restraint

Mysterious art-rock outfit Flaunt is the split operation of Justin Jennings and Joseph Vitterito.

The pair hail from different parts of the country (Colorada and Maine, respectively), the duo come together to former experimental act Flaunt. They will return this year with new album Rave Noir on March 18, and have released the albums first single “Restraint” to give fans a taste of their new direction.

“Restraint” begins with an airy chilly ambient atmosphere, before finding a jolt with an electronic beats that soon transition into a alt-rock kick. The track transitions to different areas of genre pretty seamlessly, showing off a range of sounds and emotions that work to varying degrees. The various stylistic changes take a few listens to fully adapt to, but once they do it provides some interesting results.

Check out “Restraint” below.

Ramsey – “See You Bleed”

By Will Oliver, February 21st 2016 — with 1 comment

Ramsey

“See You Bleed” is a raw and personal take from upcoming Los Angeles experimental singer-songwriter Ramsey. Her dark and unique vocals push through expected boundaries found on pop songs, creating something uniquely her own. She’s able to tap into a dark and almost haunting atmosphere that sticks wish you, creating an interesting contrast to the vocal performance that she pairs with it.

It’s always good to see an artist producing and writing all the songs in house, creating something that you can identify directly as her own, allowing her music to stand out from the pact.

Stream “See You Bleed” below.
