Alternative, Indie | BEND – Four

Posted by on October 7, 2014

 BEND   Four

Nothing excites me quite as much as young people with a passion for music.

Enter: BEND, the duo of college students who make indescribable Pop/Indie/Alternative sounds from their respective dorm rooms. Both originally from Los Angeles, vocalist, Sean, relocated to New York while producer, Garrett, stayed close to home at the University of Southern California.

Limited by their time apart during the school year, BEND spends countless hours during the Summer writing, producing, and recording. As they prepare to release their next project, Sean and Garrett unleash, “Four”. The song is co-produced by blackbear and shows the immense all-around talent of the band.

It had been nearly a year since last putting out a song. The artistic growth is palpable, and one can only imagine what is still in the vault, awaiting the public’s ears.

If you’re a fan, check out Garrett’s solo cover of the Baby Bash smash, “Suga Suga”, here.

I’m proud of these boys, the ACADEMY is doing their thang, slowely building their fanbase out here on the East Coast, but it’s no doubt they will soon be making their way nationally performing for the world. Their Sublime meets Sugar Ray sounds is a groove you can’t help but move to, and “We Ain’t Never” is an infectious one, and even more so if you catch these dudes live! I’ve been a fan of these cats since day 1, FNT being the first to support, and I can’t wait to see how far they take the music! This is a must listen!

House, Indie | Ben Sollee – Letting Go (Thomas Jack Remix)

Some new Thomas Jack for ya’ll, it’s been a minute that he’s dropped a remix, and I don’t blame him, travelling the world and selling out shows, can keep one busy, but after a gig in Mexico, the Aussie was inspired by the beach of Tulum to remix Ben Sollee’s “Letting Go” and the bass on this bad boy is a first for the man, but it’s infectious! I’m currently on my first listen, and I’m already anticipating running it right back, the mystery behind the sound will keep you on your toes, the percussion sounds like they were inspired by an old Mayan tribal ceremony, this is def a must listen and a must download! Also click on the jump, if you want to see Mr Jack, drink beer out of his shoe, I guess things got a little weird at his set at the Bowery Ballroom!

Indie | Sander Van Doorn, Martin Garrix, & DVBBS – Gold Skies Feat. Aleesia (Justin Caruso Remix)

Justin Caruso Gold Skies Remix 580x580 Sander Van Doorn, Martin Garrix, & DVBBS   Gold Skies Feat. Aleesia (Justin Caruso Remix)

It’s always nice to come across something that sounds a bit different. Nu disco / tropicool / poolside (throw in more adjectives that relate to water, sun, and the beach) music has really been blowing up lately, ie guys like Goldroom, Kygo, Thomas Jack, etc have exploded onto the scene in the past 6 months. LA producer Justin Caruso has taken some influence from these guys, but mixed in a bit of a french house vibe to pull off a stellar remix of Gold Skies. Free download below in the SC player!

Hands down, Brooklyn has the most exciting music scene at the moment, and “Flickers” by the duo Prom leads the pack! Having this record on repeat in my headphones all morning,  all I know is that if I were at their show, I’d be that guy on the side, jumping up and down, having the time of my life, projecting all of my stresses and anxiety of the day onto their set, and man is  “Flickers”  a release! There’s been a renaissance of pop music, meets electronic, meets rock n roll and it’s bringing the live scene back, so I had to feature this song, it’s amazing, and it’s a must listen!
