After years of waiting and teasing, we are finally getting a full Mating Ritual album! The record is called How You Gonna Stop It? and I couldn’t be more stoked. If you haven’t got into Mating Ritual yet then here is your “Second Chance”! (Sorry…) But seriously, I’ve selfishly had the raucous heartbreak jams “Second Chance” on […]
Brandon is obsessed with popcorn, sandwiches, and new music.

Visual art above by Vincent Mahe [via] Is this new North Downs jam the soundtrack to a futuristic sci-fi voyage, or a dusty western standoff? Why not both? Soak up the cosmic blues with North Downs as the temperature starts to rise. Pro-tip: the cowboy hat goes on after the astronaut helmet.
Visual art above by Richard Balzer [via] This is music for victorious strolls down the street. Maybe you just got a new job. Maybe you just got that cute barista’s phone number. Either way, you’re feeling equal parts swagger and class – a tip of the hat to Michael Marino for bottling all that into one […]
Visual art above by Marni Manning [via] I’m counting “Daymarks” as my exercise for the day, since I’m doing so much head-bobbing that my neck is sore. But the song is so soothing that I’m keeping it on loop anyways. Download the track for free here – that’s way cheaper than a gym membership.
Visual art above by Kari Simonsen [via] It doesn’t really matter what the calendar says – as long as “Steal It” is playing on my speakers, it’s the summer. Highly recommended for pool parties or when you wish you could be at one. Which is pretty much all the time.
Visual art above by Mike Meyers [via] Ephemerals create some odd and gorgeous groove here on “Astraea”, a song that is full of both heartache and freedom. I’ve been playing it on repeat to get through the unseasonably cold weather when I’m at today. Dive into the music video below which follows the lyrics’ advice of […]
Visual art above by Kevin Wada [via] Check your fears at the door and kill the waiting game. It’s time to crank some KYKO and dive right in. You know what I’m talking about. Do it.
Visual art above by Robin F. Williams [via] Private Island strike again with another sun kissed jam ready to clean the dirt from your ears. Bathe in that bass line as you pick up some color for Spring. “Sunbreak (B-Sides)” now available on Spotify & Apple Music. Be sure to get into their jam “Drugs” which was […]
Visual art above by Stev’nn Hall [via] I fell into Phil Good through his take on the Talking Heads classic (above) and after a bunch of chilled out spins I’m deep in his world. Currently jamming to “Growing Up” and feeling like the world is a little bright more colorful. Phil Good, indeed.
Visual art above by Jessica Pisano [via] Having a hard day? Find a friend in Girlhood. “Say It” is a solid hug of a jam. I can’t wait for more from them.
Visual art above by David Booth [via] Mr. Sanka make music for feeling good, feeling great, and then all the feelings that come the morning when you are sure your feelings are sideways. Get twisted up in their web of colors and emotions with “Gallon” and “Flight Mode”. Get into their respective EPs here.
Visual art above by Dan Levin [via] “Polaroid Season” is 3rd installment from Inspired & The Sleep’s AVO series and is a perfect soundtrack for skipping through tripped out dreamscapes on your way to a taco truck.
Visual art above by Bo Bartlett [via] Memoryy continues the tease to his forthcoming SKELETONS LP (April 11th) with this synthed up jammer tailor made for 80s movie montages about escaping bullies or building robots or other cool things that we don’t think about enough these days.
Visual art above by Collin van der Sluijs [via] Krrum delivers another jams that makes me feel dirty and confused and inspired in all the right ways.
