Premiere: The Tins – “Lifeline”

By Will Oliver, October 17th 2017 — with 1 comment

It’s hard to believe that it’s been seven years since I first discovered The Tins after they performed live at my school and wowed me with the songs off of their impressive debut EP. A lot has happened since then and it’s been great to see the maturity and growth that the band has experienced in that time.

The Buffalo-based trio is planning to self-release their new EP City Lies, which sees the band take yet another step forward in a new direction that is no doubt a giant leap forward for them as musicians. Take the dreamy slice of heaven that is the EP’s lead single “Lifeline.” It features some of their most gorgeous vocals to date and with a loopy, almost druggy groove that could have emerged from the 60s if not for it’s lovely synth work.

I am honored and proud that we have the pleasure of premiering “Lifeline” which itself isn’t being digitally released until on October 27. You can enjoy the single in all it’s glory from the stream below and let it hold you over until the whole EP is released on December 8. If you’re in the Buffalo area, you can join the band for their EP release party at the Lockhouse Distillery on October 20.

Sam Seeger is no stranger to this blog, the local Rockland County resident has been self-releasing a great set of tunes for some time now. Growing up in a household full of talented artists: filmmakers, painters and fellow musicians, Sam was always on his way to create something of his own in the world of music.

Over the years he’s self-released his material, getting better and better as an artist with each and every release. Today we have the distinct honor of premiering his brand new 3-song EP Doin’ It All The Time and let me tell you, it’s his finest work yet.

Only A Visitor are an art-pop quintet from Vancouver who are gearing up the release of their new album Lines on June 16. Today, they have given us the honor to premiere their brand new music video for the album’s new single and title track.

The lush song is full of colorful vocals and arrangements that are as delicate as they are soothing. Think a mix of Dirty Projectors with female led vocals as well as the shape-shifting arrangements of Grizzly Bear and Tune-Yards. The video which features many imaginative animations put together by video artist Roxanne Nesbitt is a lovely visualization of the track which winningly brings it to life in visual form.

Check out the video below, and for more information on the band, head to their website.

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.

[U.S. Premiere]: Brass Phantoms – “Waiting Up”

By Will Oliver, February 24th 2017 — with 1 comment

It’s good to get back into the game of premieres, especially when it comes from an exciting new band from Ireland. They’re known as Brass Phantoms and although they may be new to you, they’ve already made quite the impression in their neck of the woods.

Last year they released “City Of Wolves,” a song which garnered them play on their national broadcaster RTE, eventually leading to a slot on BBC Introducing, along with various live sessions. They’re now being booked for various “Ones To Watch” showcases, and even some summer festivals playing alongside the likes of Manic Street Preachers and Tom Odell.

Today we bring you the U.S. premiere of their music video for their rather great new track “Waiting Up.” It’s a sharp and memorable piece of guitar rock that has that slick sound that reminds of early Two Door Cinema Club. The group have this rather larger than life sound that they skillfully hone in on. They toy with breaking it out in full force, but show some well appreciated restraint and keep it a tight affair, that has me addicted coming back for more.

For those of you in Ireland, they headline their own show in Dublin at The Workman’s Club on April 20. For the rest of us, keep an eye on these guys, they’re ones to watch. Enjoy the video posted below

Premiere: Kamron Bahani – “Furia di Dio”

By Will Oliver, October 24th 2016

Kamron Bahani's - Serpenti Accordo EP

Rockland County’s very own Kamron Bahani has shed the old moniker Kuhlamity and has emerged re-birthed as a new man, furiously ready to release his brand new EP Serpenti Accordo.

He previously shared with us “La Leggenda” off the EP, and has since returned with the first proper single from the EP, “Furia di Dio.” It takes only a few seconds for your ears to take notice of the production flourishes on the track, a chill and gentling welcome before Kamron’s furious verses burst through at lightning speed and work in tandem with the rest of the track, which is another showcase for his burgeoning talents. It may just be one of the best tracks that he’s ever released.

We’ve been patiently awaiting the rest of this EP, which he’s been hard at work applying all the finishing touches. If the EP is packed with tracks of the same quality as this and “La Leggenda,” it’s going to be something pretty special.

Kamron was cool enough to offer this as the official premiere of the track, which you can enjoy below.

Premiere: Bang Gang – Sabazios O (TRPTYCH Remix)

By Will Oliver, August 3rd 2016

Bang Gang - Sabazios O (TRPTYCH Remix)

Icelandic producer Bardi Johannsson who works under the moniker Bang Gang, creates chilly mesmerizing electronic music with an atmosphere. He’s no stranger to these parts.

Last year they released the rather underrated album The Wolves Are Whispering, which included the emotive track “Sabazios O,”, which featured a Sigur Ros-like emotional grip with a ton of power.

Today I have the honor of premiering a special remix of the track from an Icelandic duo named TRPTYCH. The techno group offered their long-time expertise on the dance/techno scene to offer of an analogue dance take on the song that strips it of its elements, creating something new while also maintaining the spirit of the original.

When asked about the remix, Bardi was taken by how his vocals “sound like I just ate a computer or maybe got eaten by a computer on a nice bass and beat.” Who knows, maybe the great Nicolas Winding Refn may use this in his next picture as Ryan Gosling is hitting the road, or another human.

Stream the club ready remix below.

Premiere: Sam Seeger – “Empty Mind Man” Music Video

By Will Oliver, January 4th 2016 — with 1 comment

Sam Seeger - Empty Mind Man Video

Today I have the honor of having the exclusive premiere of Sam Seeger’s new music video for “Empty Mind Man.” The thunderous cut of garage rock is taken from Seeger’s debut solo EP Coffin Fashion, which we shared with you guys in the introducing feature on Sam that we posted last month.

The crafty and stylish video features Seeger along with drummer Rosie Slater (of New Myths) and was directed by Seeger, allowing him to perfectly capture the dirty, gritty feel of the song. Seeger swiftly proves that not only is he a talent behind the guitar, but also behind the lens (along with his brother Ben Seeger). As the director and artist himself, he’s able to capture and fine tune his aesthetic as an artist, building something memorable along the way.

Enjoy the music video below, and be sure to catch his upcoming free performance at Pete’s Candy Store next Saturday, January 16 at 8 pm and find his EP available for purchase on iTunes.

San Fermin - Wild Honey Pie : Shake Shack

Back in April I had the pleasure of attending an intimate performance from San Fermin at Headroom NYC, who were performing a Buzzsession put on by our buddies over at The Wild Honey Pie. The session was made that much more special as it featured a collaboration with Shake Shack, who made the intimate performance that much better with free burgers and their fine Shackmeister Ale. It’s not often you get to mix the equally great worlds of food and live music.

Today I have the honor and privilege of premiering one of the Buzzsession videos from that evening. It’s their performance of “Emily,” which sounds just as good as I remember it those many months ago. It’s interesting to see the final product after witnessing it all go down live in person. If you haven’t been to one of The Wild Honey Pie’s events or tapings yet, this video will make you want to rectify that immediately.

Enjoy the performance below, and be sure to check out one of the group when they return to New York City for a three night stand at Bowery Ballroom on December 17th, 18th & 19th. Tickets are on sale at the bands website.

Premeire: SISTERS – “Back 2 U” (Figgy Remix)

By Will Oliver, August 10th 2015

sisters back 2 u figgy art

Sisters is the Seattle duo of Emily Westman and Andrew Vait. The two have only been making music under Sisters for about a year, but already caught attention for their delightful single “Back 2 U,” taken from their debut EP, Diamonds of Gold. Based on that alone, they found themselves booked at festivals such as Capitol Hill Block Party and Fisherman’s Village Music Festival.

The original version of “Back 2 U” had an early Passion Pit swagger to it. It recently got remixed by East Coast producer Figgy, who slows down the pace a bit, giving the song a sexier, more romantic outlook, while also spicing it up with delicate synths and percussion that keeps the dance influence perfectly intact. It’s does what any good remix should, keeping the main identity of the song while also adding something distinctive.

Today we have the privilege of premiering Figgy’s remix of “Back 2 U” exclusively with you guys. I hope you enjoy it. You can find it streaming below, along with the original version.
