Penn Badgley ( Dan Humphrey, aka Lonely Boy) has apparently just done something really Penn Badgley-ish; namely, joining/forming a band called Mother that is based out of Brooklyn. I was admittedly planning to roll my eyes at this most hipstery of hipster resume additions, but unfortunately (or fortunately, as it were) this nascent group actually has some stuff. Fidgety bassline, interesting drums, languid vocals, and cool, atmospheric production — what? This track is officially awesome. Consider me intrigued. (Just don’t tell Serena — you know how she loves to pretend she’s “with the band.”)

Alternative, Ambient, Chill | Prelow – Simple Song

 Prelow   Simple Song

A month or so ago, we premiered to you a soft-spoken indie group by the name of Prelow. The NYC-bred duo is back with their newest release entitled, “Simple Song”. Staying true to its name, “Simple Song” doesn’t employ dozens of layers of instruments or vocals, but rather strips it down the excess and provides a song beautiful for everything that it’s not.

Prelow is a promising new name in indie music not only for their vocal prowess, but the self-production that has captivated over 15,000 listeners over the past five days. Enjoy a free download and stream below.

I didn’t see this track coming at all, Jackson Breit surprises us with a quick freebie per usual before his next single. Jackson Breit is always having fun with the music, using creative lyrics, and catchy lines for the fans to enjoy.  We are also expecting a two part EP any time soon. Be on the lookout for Jackson to do big things in 2014.

Erik Hassle Talk About it feat. Vic Mensa 500x500 Erik Hassle   Talk About it (feat. Vic Mensa)

Celebrating my first post in a while with some Erik Hassle & Vic Mensa. After four weeks of movin’ around the country and making it safely back to California, I FINALLY have internet, which I’ve been without for quite awhile…So long stone age!!!
Off his upcoming “Somebody’s Party EP” set to release 3/4/14, Erik Hassle has dropped some seriously intimate songs. I’m not one to jump and post a ushy gushy article either, but this song has rubbed off on me the last couple of days and the beat is simply to die for. Enjoy your afternoon while I enjoy my Facebook feed… And this song for that matter.

Sitting pretty at the number 5 spot on iTunes top 10 album list, Aer’s self titled album might be taking noobs by storm, but it’s exactly what their loyal fan base has been anticipating.  Covering all the bases, the 12-track project is diverse enough to fulfill multiple moods, but stays within the walls of Aer’s self constructed genre.  Attributing their success to their organic word-of-mouth FAMily, David and Carter did spend a fair amount of time writing and recording in LA, but finished the album up in their hometown studio…David’s bedroom.

“In the hills or the valley, and were far from the finale, I want this so badly, no I won’t let go.”

Aside from their previously released singles (“Won’t Laugh”, “Spades, Clubs, & Diamonds”, and “Says She Loves Me”), my immediate favorites are “Pretty Lady”, “Stars” and “Movin’ It”.  Recline, kick up your feet and enjoy this project while you support the dudes on iTunes.

The second track off the forthcoming album Easy Yoke EP, “Easy Yoke” by Favela. makes for a pretty easy listening song with great lyrics and a feel that’s somewhat addictive, making you want to press replay when it’s over. The track is simple – yet simply irresistible. Definitely gonna be waiting for the drop of this EP.

Alternative, Hip-Hop, Videos | Aer – Says She Loves Me

Posted by on January 7, 2014

Feast your eyes on Aer’s vibrant new video, “Says She Loves Me”.  Snappy strums leads the beat while David and Carter relive their relationship experiences through punchy & quotable lyrics.  This video turns back the clocks and unlocks the “bright on white” palette for our viewing pleasure – certainly a step outside of what we’re used to expecting from the Boston duo, but they play the part well.  Grab the track below on iTunes and tune up for their self titled album dropping January 21st!
