vhscollection VHS Collection   Lean

Lean is the latest release from VHS Collection, a 5-piece electro-rock band based in New York City.  The song is a lyrically colorful track about growing up in NYC, friendship, and the tug of war between playing in rock bands and so-called “serious” responsibilities.  The track features bouncy disco-rock drums and bass blended with swirling arpeggiated synth and guitar leads.  The unique vocals have a sort of David Byrne vibe and remind us of the importance of our friends.  The band is currently working on their first full-length album, set to be released in fall 2015.

Far Hills Cider is the original single from VHS Collection, a 5-piece electro-rock band based in New York City. The song is a synth pop ballad that just might get stuck in your head this summer.

This track is the band’s most popular track to date and was recently nominated by the Deli Magazine for “Best New NYC Electronic Song for Emerging Artists”. The band is currently working on their first full-length album, set to be released in fall 2015.

If you have found yourself here, welcome. Keeping his distance from the interwebs he returns, demonstrating he’s clearly been putting in studio time. This remix to ‘Born Free’ is different but that’s ok – it’s dark and that seems somewhat appropriate given Stalking Gia’s profile. The star is given a make-over and Reuben is quite the artist. Here’s a taste of what’s to come from the den.

DIMES is back with another smashing remix. This time he’s taken a stab at indie group BABE and he’s done wonders to their original ‘Circles.’ There are elements of tropical house, deep house, and a smooth blend of the original resulting in one electric combination of synths and chimes. DIMES has been showing his consistency in music-making and this track is but a testament to his calibre.

It’s been a minute since I last featured the Blancos, and that’s my fault, I haven’t been paying attention, so we’ll just call this Throwback Tuesday, as these two dudes covered Nirvana’ “Something In The Way” and it’s leaving me haunted with chills with how raw it sounds. When I’m not listening to electronic music, I’m laying back listening to indie records like this which take you out of this world. There’s def something in the way they covered this classic, this is a must listen and a must download!

Alternative, Hip-Hop, Indie, Reggae | Summer Is Officially Here With Academy’s New Single ‘Outta State’

With snow continuing to fall in the Northern parts of New England as recently as ten days ago, the duo known most for their summer vibes, Academy, decided to tell Mother Nature enough is enough and it is time to heat things up. While most gravitate towards comparing Evan Walsh and John That to the likes of Aer, it would appear Academy has found their own unique sound with their newest releases.

A month ago the Los Angeles residents dropped the visuals for ‘Hold Me Down‘, which was a much funkier sound than we have come to expect and today’s release ‘Outta State’ will completely blow you away. This track completely flips the formula with John spitting some incredibly witty verses and Evan supplying the audience with an extremely catchy hook that will have all singing ‘THATS JUST HOW I FEEL!’.  With producer Matt Osenton working exclusive with the duo on the new project it is safe to say this EP is going to be one of the best in 2015.

Be sure to play this one extremely loud where ever you are and give Academy a follow on Twitter and a Like on Facebook!
