Highasakite // Since Last Wednesday

That moment you realize no music has been posted for the last 39489 days. Sorry friends. Just casually picked up and moved to Australia to be amongst all that music greatness I’ve written about for years and years and years. Be sure to check out “Hiroshima” and HAAK’s stunning, stunning cover of Bon Iver’s “Heavenly Father.”…

Amber Run // I Found (Mahogany Session)

It comes with great regret to announce we have been off our game lately (if it’s already not obvious) – but we appreciate EACH and every e-mail we are receiving. So… THANK YOU for still loving this blog, though it might be feeling hurt, a little slighted, and emotionally untended to at the moment. Anyway,…

New Gods // Millionaire // Of Mere Being // Razorblades

In honor of Triple J Unearthed’s “Top 10 Unearthed Tracks You Missed” that was posted yesterday, it comes with no surprise that we are here to say YES, WE AGREE to their top picks. In particular, we’re a big fan of indie rock group New Gods’ minimalist approach in their track “Millionaire” and I think you should have a…

Festival Review: Treasure Island Music Festival 2014

Tis that time when we realize that TIMF was upon us two weekends ago in San Francisco….and we are just now getting around to writing about it. Let’s make a few things clear before we get to debriefing: 1) We’ve never been before. The only SF festival we’ve attended is Outside Lands – which granted, was…

The War on Drugs // Red Eyes

We’re compiling some tunes today for our road trip up to San Francisco this weekend for….yes, Treasure Island Music Fest. Just, yes. And on the top of that list, “Red Eyes” by Philadelphia bred six-piece The War on Drugs. Breakdown of TIMF schedule up next. Just sharing this gem in the meantime x Happy Wednesday ya’ll.

Mansionair // Hold Me Down

So….last week I had the pleasure of attending Bigsound in Brisbane where, not kidding, all of the Australian music industry decided to become a gang and take over three or four streets in Fortitude Valley. And unlike the industry here in lovely USA, and at events like SXSW, you continued to run into the same faces…

Lucius // Two of Us on the Run

It’s Monday, and I know we’re all unhappy about it. Here’s a little tune to cheer you up. Lucius is a five-piece hailing from Brooklyn, NY that I just recently came across, and I’m unsure as to why it’s taken this long. Befuddled. Angry. Sad. But happy we’re writing about them now. Check out their catchy, melodically pleasing stuff…

XING // Fate

These two fellas had reached out to us with their track ‘Fate’ and I can’t tell you how exciting it was when he had a listen & realized right away it was true love. The experimental element of this duo’s sound has us, completely, and utterly transfixed. Get on this before others do. x

Conner Youngblood // Australia // Confidence EP

I’m a big, big fan of this Dallas-born gentleman’s unparalleled craft, and his musical ingenuity doesn’t fail us in the slightest in his EP ‘Confidence,’ which released earlier this year. He’s a one-man show, mimicking the styles of some of our beloved favorites like Bon Iver and Ray LaMontagne with his delicate, atmospheric tone. The…

VÉRITÉ // Strange Enough

We’re quite excited to introduce this gem to you. New to our ears as of this week, VÉRITÉ is a divine mix of all things musically genius and New York. Yes, it’s true, we’ve decided to take the plunge and feature an artist from the lovely USA. We’re sensing a little bit of a BANKS vibe…

Glass Animals // Pools

I’m totally okay with accepting the fact I must have been hiding under a rock these past few months/years, as I am just now hearing of Glass Animals – an English indie four-piece that is rocking my world. On June 9th this year, they released their album Zaba (which is already cool by nature of its name),…
