Alternative, Hip-Hop, Videos | Aer – Whatever We Want

Posted by on July 9, 2014

Fitted in Celtics green track suits, the Boston duo hit us with visuals for what is now their 4th single off their recently released self-titled album.  A carefree attitude clearly the motive behind this track, which is only appropriate seeing as though the FAM has pioneered a new lane in music.  Light guitar riffs, a repetitive and free spirited hook, and the usual clever rhymes back this message as they continue to carve out their niche.  Carter & David are currently on a nationwide tour Headlined by Dirty Heads, Pepper, & limited appearances by 311.  For tour dates & tickets, check out Aer’s website.

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.

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!

Alternative, Hip-Hop, Videos | Aer – Won’t Laugh

It’s been a few since Northeast duo, Aer, hit us with a new track.  While their good vibes, string riffs, & carpe diem lyrics are often associated with “summer music”, “Won’t Laugh” carries their sound through all four seasons.  The almost tribal toned intro rings us in, as David picks up the guitar and carries the hook while Carter lays down a few noteworthy verses; “Now you wonder why I wouldn’t trade my life with you, Why?! Cuz you hang the same keys from the same hook every afternoon, My angels lookin down upon me from a great view, they got my back but they hate you”.  ‘Do what you love, love what you do’ mentality.

Soaring high, it’s safe to say these guys will be raising the bar on their self entitled album due out January 21st!

We here at Fresh New Tracks are excited to bring you the newest mix from none other than, DJ Smiles! The disc jockey best known for his worldwide touring with reggae-duo, Aer, has decided to liven up your summer with this epic forty-five minute mix guaranteed to get you hyped!

DJ Smiles released The State of the Come-Up this past January, featuring some of the hottest rising rappers in the game, and while we anxiously await the next volume of the series, Smiles tides us over with “Twerk Trap”. If I told you that the likes of Tyga, Trinidad Jame$, Young Jeezy, and Lil Mama, were featured on the mix, you’d probably drop what you were doing and start twerking on spot — so I won’t tell you that. But, what I will tell you is that this song-collage is well worth the near-hour you’ll be investing into it.

All of you readers are the first to listen DJ Smiles’ mix, so feel lucky, and spread the love by dropping him a comment over on Soundcloud!
