By Will Oliver, May 17th 2017

Arni Ehmann is a singer-songwriter out of Reykjavik, Iceland, who is preparing the release of his debut album. He’s recently shared the first single from the LP, “Staring At The Moon.”

Considering he’s a new talent, “Staring At Moon” remarkably takes no time to win you over with it’s dreamy melody, and smooth vocals that hook you in with ease. It’s got it all, a nice melody, a big hook, and crisp production that puts your mind at ease. It’s got a slight 80s feel to it, in the best way possible.

Take a listen to “Staring At The Moon” below, and keep an eye out for more news from Ehmann soon.

Silverbacks – “Dirty Money”

By Will Oliver, May 13th 2017

Hailing from Dublin, Ireland, Silverbacks are a rock band who are gearing up the release of their new EP Sink The Fat Moon via PK Miami Records.

They’ve let go of the EP’s first single “Dirty Money” a song that immediately settles into a Parquet Courts type of groove, with calming vocals over some guitar riffs that remind of Sonic Youth. It’s a track that wastes no time hooking you in, and paying off immediately with some guitar goodness.

Enjoy a stream of “Dirty Money” below and if you like what you’re hearing, grab the EP over at Bandcamp.

Kae Dal – “Liar”

By Will Oliver, May 7th 2017

Hailing from Toronto, singer-songwriter Kae Dal has a gentle touch on latest single “Liar,” a synth-led love-song that beautifully expands around your heart with ease. It’s a gentle song that takes it’s time to blossom, but once it does, it sounds like a lush love child of Beach House and Sharon Van Etten. Yes, it is indeed that magical.

It was produced by Matt Tavares of BADBADNOTGOOD and is a big song that is one of the best songs of the year that not enough people are swooning over. Let me help you change that, enjoy “Liar” below and make it your duty to pass the song to one friend and have him or her do the same. It deserves to be heard.

Heavy Heart – “Fruitfly”

By Will Oliver, May 7th 2017

Heavy Heart are a indie rock group who hail from London, and bring a bit of the 90s Brit Rock sound with them.

Fans of Wolf Alice will want to keep a close eye on these group, who recently released their debut album Keepsake (via new independent label I Can & I Will – on raspberry red vinyl, hand-numbered and signed, limited to 300 copies), a collection of all the songs that they released last year, one each month.

The group has released a very 90’s-esque music video for “Fruitfly” a mesmerizing track that sounds like a mix of Wolf Alice, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and Lush. It’s a song drenched with emotional nostalgia, with a sense of longing, but also hope. It’s a lush listen, one that I hope you dive into below:

Premiere: Kamron Bahani – “Depersonalization”

By Will Oliver, May 1st 2017 — with 1 comment

We last caught up with Rockland County rapper (a hometown guy for us) Kamron Bahani last year when he returned with new single “La Leggenda.” If you don’t know Kamron, we’re here to help you correct that. His style is reminiscent of the golden era with a contemporary twist. He can do it all: have fun, be lyrical, make you smile, make you hate, all with the fundamental reasoning that human emotion correlates to expressionism.

He’s back this year with a new concept album DSM Vl that revolved around mental disabilities. The first offering from this exciting project is “Depersonalization,” a track that tackles multiple personality disorder. It’s a dense topic, not one to be taken lightly, but Bahani takes the sad subject and tries to deliver a fun track anyway.

The song is produced by Blu Majic, and features the natural evolution of an artist who continues to grow with every new release. If you track all the posts we’ve done over the years on this blog, back when he was rocking the Kuhlamity moniker, it’s amazing just how far he’s come.

We are proud to have the exclusive first premiere of “Depersonalization,” which you can stream right now below.

It seems like ever since the release of DSU in 2014, Alex G has been at it non-stop, releasing Beach Music, his first album for Domino Records in 2015, and of course, he toured non-stop and seemed to never take a break. Things were a little bit quieter for the band last year, but we had a feeling something had to be on the way. It was just a matter of time.

Sure enough, today Alex G has announced a brand new album named Rocket, which Domino will release on May 19 (preorder here). With today’s announcement he’s also released two offerings from the album, “Bobby” and “Witch.”

Hideout – “Doctor”

Hideout is the project of Manhattan-based songwriter Gabriel Rodriguez, who has been a long-time member of Cults. He released his debut album Rookie in 2014, and will return with his sophomore album So Many Hoops/So Little Time on February 3, 2017 via Small Plates Records.

Rodriguez has given us a taste of the album with the warm and welcoming “Doctor.” Although the sounds are warm, there’s a lingering feeling of nostalgia on the track that digs deep. This is no mistake, as the album is a bit of personal reflection for Rodriguez, who tragically lost his brother.

It’s a strong offering from Hideout, definitely one of the first under the radar projects to keep an eye on early next year. You can pre-order the album now, and enjoy a stream of “Doctor” posted below.

El Mar is project of Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Joey Primero, along with a collective of NYC musicians. She’s gearing up to release her debut full-length album next year, but she’s already given us our first taste in the form of the album’s first single, “My Body.”

Amazingly the track was written in just 15-minutes on the ukulele, but what’s even more astonishing is the powerful message that Primero delivers with the track. When asked about the meaning behind the song, here’s what she had to say:

It’s for and about women, and the difficult choices they sometimes have to make. Those decisions are tough, and incredibly personal, and women should have the right to do what is best for themselves and their bodies.

It’s the sort of message that we can really use these days, especially with such a big election just a couple of hours away.

Enjoy the powerful track, which is posted below.

[new]: Sam Seeger – “It’s Alright”

By Will Oliver, September 2nd 2016

Sam Seeger

Sam Seeger has returned once again with “It’s Alright,” the latest vicious ripper of a track from Rockland County’s finest.

It’s one of Seeger’s more experimental jams to date, with some futuristic synth and electronic sounds making their way with his already signature riffs, and some chilled out 90s-minded vocals on top of it all. It’s another winner, and it has us wondering when he’s going to drop a full album of material soon.

Not only did Sam play everything on “It’s Alright” (guitar, drums, bass, drum machine, and synth) but he also recorded, mixed, and mastered it on his own. Well now I feel even more lazy about what I did today.

You can stream the track below, but if you like what you hear, head over to the track’s bandcamp page to purchase it for $1.

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.
