Donnie Castle – “Oooh” // Narciso Espiritu

I can totally imagine driving fast through the countryside with Donnie Castle on blast through the windows! Well… until the car breaks down on the side of a dark back woods road… and then the sky starts doing things it isn’t supposed to.

Jazz Morley – “Ruin Me” // Julie Cockburn

There is lots to love about Jazz Morely, and her honesty here on “Ruin Me” only adds to the list. Bliss out to this new track as you absorb her story behind it here.

Ruin Me about finding yourself in a bad place in life, feeling like you’re only just holding it together, and being vulnerable to another’s influence- be it good or bad. Sometimes when the world seems grey and hopeless, and you’re craving anything that isn’t mundane normality, meeting somebody new can be both exciting and dangerous.

Be sure to catch Jazz’s fantastic track “Bad Love” on Vinyl Moon Vol 016: Breathing Shadows.

JOHN.k – “Runnin” // Marco Mazzoni

I’ve been runnin’ for over a week at SXSW down in Austin and now sitting back with “Runnin” on repeat is just the kind of jolt I need to get back in the swing of things. Fresh, funky, and echoeing that bit of pain my body is currently recovering from…

JOHN.k tells the story of how “Runnin” was the beginning of things…

“Runnin” was the catalyst that sparked the entire project. When we first tracked it over unpolished production, the team and I felt like we had stumbled into something special. The hard part was not screwing it up. Anytime we would experiment and change things in the record, we would always end up going back to the way we originally recorded the idea. It was raw, troubled, connected, and dynamic. It just felt good there.

Find “Runnin” on Spotify here.

DYAN – “What Fiction Is For” // Aydin Buyuktas

Stop what you are doing and dive into this brand new track from DYAN. “What Fiction Is For” is the first bit of new music we’ve had from them since their stellar debut LP Looking For Knives dropped last summer. It’s a dreamy, crunchy, and dancy jam that I’ll be spinning all week in anticipation of their set at our SXSW showcase on Saturday!

Plus, DYAN recently dropped a video for the smash title track from Looking For Knives. Its shot in an abandoned hotel and is a total visual treat.
