Albums | Coast Modern Gets Trippy on “Puppy Llama”

Posted by on November 1, 2019

“Puppy Llama” is a total breathe of fresh air… Even if I cannot fathom whatever type of animal that is. L.A. based band Coast Modern’s tripped out new indie pop single just feels right. The song itself is a thrill ride that feels like white-knuckling it on Diddy Kong’s mining cart, careening down glittering crystal mine shafts, whizzing around hairpin turns to reveal heaping piles of bananas and shimmering riches with each turn. The boys also add in a dash of timely reggaeton and reggae rhythms, a chirping Indian sample, and psychedelic swirls to create a veritable cornucopia of ecstasy. This is one of the most organic tunes I’ve heard in a hot minute and I’m ready for more new Coast Modern immediately but can sit on this one in the meantime.. Please just don’t take another few years to drop new music this time around! Listen to “Puppy Llama” above now.

Albums | Two Can & Martyn Ell Connect For “Gonna Be”

Posted by on October 8, 2019

Australian brother duo Two Can have returned to dropping new tunes after a brief hiatus. The guitar used throughout “Gonna Be” is emotional and melancholy, as are the rest of the vibes of the original single. The lyrics depict an indecisive, open-ended relationship that would confuse anyone involved in it. As the calming production gradually swells up around Martyn Ell’s top line the hook sets in to an irresistibly catchy space that flows into a call and response with the lead synth that will be stuck in your head for days to come. Check out “Gonna Be” featuring Martyn Ell above now!

It’s not often you find songs like this. “Prodigy” is by a Jewish hip hop artist who goes by the name of Myles Reed.  We can already tell this song is going to be important. The dynamics keep us on our toes. The creativity is palpable. Definitely adding this one to my playlist rotation. Turn up the volume and vibe out.

San Francisco based producer and DJ, shdws, recently unveiled his newest house track, “One More Night.” Yet another artisanal craft from the heart of deep creativity, shdws maintains a theme of deep bass lines, and glooming sound design. My favorite design aspect of “One More Night” is the spooky beat he’s crafted and layered with female vocals of ambiguity that speak lines like “pour your gasoline all over me.” Definitely going in some club rotations soon. Find “One More Night” on Soundcloud or Spotify for streaming and free download here.
