Oh to be young and live only for the sun and the sand and not let any of the moments in between slow your roll or get in the way of the hunt for a good time. So what if you lose a sandal out of the sunroof? So what if you take a laughing […]

Australia is far away from me and I know that it has magical things that remain unfairly isolated because of the distance. A lot of things get their due love over here, but a lot don’t. If I had a magic boat I would sail there and collect its treasures to bring back and show […]
Even though I haven’t seen them live since long before I started The Burning Ear 6 years ago, I am pretty sure Brand New is still the band that I’ve bought tickets to see more than any other band in my life. And I get to see them again in 2 weeks. It will either be […]
An over-caffeinated Ben Khan returns with this jitter jumper of a synth and drum pad groover. Our silk-voiced boy got the girl and now he is taking her out for a night on the damn town. Get on board or get out of the way.
Fellow Briton Dan Villalobos flips Robyn Sherwell’s raucous foot stomper “Islander” into a chilled out and hung over foot shuffler. Perfect for sunsets, sunrises, and coctails with the word “sun” in them.

In the hurricane of love and hate I still remain “Nowhere Now” is the title track of Waterstrider’s upcoming album to be released on April 6th. You can pre-order the album on Bandcamp and get this song along with three others upon purchase.
Go, man, go! You thought you were so smart ordering pizzas before we got home and now the pizza guy is gonna get home before we do and I’m hungry as shit and my teen angst is flaring up and I need sustenance, man! The Teen Age hold a special spot in The Burning Ear […]
Well folks, this is it. The moment you have all been waiting for since I foolishly started this multipart post during SXSW. Make sure you have read Part 1 (60-41) and Part 2 (40-21) before diving into these jams. But without further ado, I present the top 20 Best Underrated Songs of the past 6 years. Listen to […]
