The Blancos from Brooklyn know how to make music, and that’s a fact, peep their record “Love’s Impossible,” some indie soul rock music to get you through this grey humid April afternoon. Obviously under the radar, my friend Scott hit me with 3 of their records, notably the one featured here, but make sure you check out “Lemon Garden,” and “Losing Sleep” both quality productions which explore the sample game, and capture that refreshing sound. I was also told that they have exciting news coming up, so keep an ear out for that. This is a must listen, and we’re still waiting on that download!

They ease into it in this one with first two sevenths of the song being carried by piano before letting the energy flow for the rest of the track. This is already the duo’s seventh release of the year and they just keep on impressing. The song will be available April 4th on iTunes.

You have undoubtedly heard at least some of their stuff before so I’m not going to explain their style again because I have been doing it every couple of weeks for months now. This has their classic sound and is once again a great remix. Also, they have broken their string of official tracks and released this one for free.

Indie, Progressive House | Bastille – Flaws (The Chainsmokers Remix)

There’s not really anything left to say about The Chainsmokers or a song of theirs that hasn’t already been said, so I’m going to write a paragraph saying all those things again anyway. The follow up to their godforsaken awesomely cool original “#Selfie“ is an official remix for Bastille. Their version of “Flaws” has the same light progressive house infused with indie sound that many of their previous stuff does so if you’ve listened to a song of theirs before then you should know what to expect from this. The release date is currently unknown though if I were to have a guess, I would say either some time relatively soon or possibly later in the year.

Indie, Pop | Academy – Closer To Me

Them Academy boys are it again with their latest release “Closer To Me,” a catchy little ditty with sunny vibes, and a refreshing sound compared to everything else that’s out there. For a 2 minute and 30 second song it’s a true tease from what we can expect from these 2, and another reason for you to download it and play it on repeat. Other then the music, I have to applaud the guys for their songwriting, pay attention to their lyrics, these guys can write! If you want to know what California and Brooklyn sound like when they make music together, Academy is it. This is a must listen and a must download.

Hip-Hop, Indie, Videos | Times New Roman – Diamonds (Official Music Video)

Posted by on February 5, 2014

Some of you might remember Times New Roman from my interview with him a couple months prior to this post, and he’s back with some visuals for his banger. “Diamonds” off his “Demo” tape has caught attention from multiple blogs and it’s well deserved. With a little soul there, and a little hip hop here, and some dashes of indie and mo-town all in one, there’s no way TNR won’t strike your ear the right way. Help the one and only Mr. Bolton celebrate his first visual premiere by watching “Diamonds” and get your groove on to some good ass tunes.

Chill, Indie | Prelow – For The Team

Posted by on January 22, 2014

 Prelow   For The Team

After a semi-intelligent child turned me on to their music a few weeks back, I have been absolutely hooked on Prelow. The mysterious band has only one public track on their SoundCloud, but the heavily-produced indie tune “For The Team” has me begging to hear more.

Lead vocalist, Jesse Aicher, whispers sweet nothings in to your ear as the song progresses. His soft, melodic voice complementing the hazy electronic instrumental to make a sound unlike much of what I have heard coming out of the indie genre.

The duo, although seemingly new to the scene, clearly has a natural cohesion, and a knack for making intriguing music. I encourage you all to check out Prelow’s “For The Team” and stay tuned for more from the NYC-based group.
