Aer Whatever We Want ft. Dizzy Wright 500x500 Aer   Whatever We Want Remix ft. Dizzy Wright

Do you like bars?  Candy bars, mobile phone service bars, RAP BARS?  Well, if you like the latter, you’re in luck.  Warming fans up for their House Party tour with 2013 XXL Freshman Dizzy Wright, Carter & David remix their last hit “Whatever We Want” with a new verse along with a guest cameo from Dizzy himself.  In my mind, Dizzy is one of the most promising MC’s still grinding on the come up – a focused flow with a message, so naturally he delivers a killer verse.  Carter though, DAMN he went in on this.

 Jaymes Young   Come Back For Me

Here is a new track called “Come Back For Me” off of Jaymes Young’s new EP called “Habits Of My Heart”. His voice is so unique and recognizable, and I mean that in a good way. The style he sings with conveys the emotion behind his tracks beautifully. “Come Back For Me” features his signature style over slow ambient synths and harmonic layers. This one’s got some deep vibes. You can grab the whole EP off Itunes now.

Alternative, Indie | Painted Zeros – SVALBARD EP (Free Download)

Posted by on July 24, 2014

Painted Zeros 500x333 Painted Zeros   SVALBARD EP (Free Download)

The debut EP from Brooklyn-based Painted Zeros is, for lack of a better word, awesome. The five tracks comprising SVALBARD are an assertive and creatively varied journey through the psyche of singer/songwriter/guitar player/producer/jack of all trades Katie Lau. No fillers here, unless you count 30 seconds of tight experimental wandering halfway through — the EP ranges from deceptively fragile and New Order-tinged (“This American Life”) to ecstatic and garage rock-y (“Jaime”) to moody-yet-hopeful-yet-delicate-yet-steely (“Too Drunk”). It manages to feel at once retro and searingly modern — a tricky balance attempted by many but achieved by few. Check out SVALBARD in full below and hit the free download, because free download.

I’m big into pop, progressive house, and large women talking to me. Not even joking about that last one, cause I like talking to everyone. I am constantly stocked up on progressive house tracks, but I am not as deep into the pop realm as I’d like to be. I go in a little bit, then out for a brief moment, then back in, then pretty much repeat that for a while. John Cena knows. Smallpools is one of the few who can keep me in there  I’m a huge fan of them – so I was happy to see that they released a new song. “Killer Whales” is great and has the same upbeat and fast paced feel as all their previous stuff. While it may not be their best track, it is still quality and definitely worth a listen for all you indie-pop lovers out there.

Alternative, Chill | Prelow – Mistakes Like This

Posted by on July 16, 2014

It takes a lot for an alternative or indie band to stick out to me. My ear isn’t particular honed in this genre, and I never like to point people in the direction of an artist or song that isn’t amazing. Luckily for me and you, I have no qualms telling you the Prelow is one of the most exciting and intriguing Indie bands out right now, period.

With only three songs in the entirety of their catalogue, the New York duo has shown us many sides and an incredible amount of talent.

Their most recent song “Mistakes Like This” is another huge leap forward in their music. The blunt chorus immediately stands out to listeners, contrasted against the tender verses. Take a listen below to the all-to-relatable song.

And my dick takes over,
and I’m thinkin’ about your lips,
but we’re too damn sober,
for mistakes like this.

Fitted in Celtics green track suits, the Boston duo hit us with visuals for what is now their 4th single off their recently released self-titled album.  A carefree attitude clearly the motive behind this track, which is only appropriate seeing as though the FAM has pioneered a new lane in music.  Light guitar riffs, a repetitive and free spirited hook, and the usual clever rhymes back this message as they continue to carve out their niche.  Carter & David are currently on a nationwide tour Headlined by Dirty Heads, Pepper, & limited appearances by 311.  For tour dates & tickets, check out Aer’s website.
