The Lagoons – “California” // Jesse Kassel

Having grown up in California I will take all the odes to my home state I can get. Especially when they are as 100% smooth operating as this horn-filled gem from The Lagoons. It strikes all the right chords for a day at the beach racing the heat to the bottom of a pitcher of Modelo.

[MP3] Birocratic – “Overexpressed” // Caitlyn Murphy

Sure, I miss Summer. So do you! But songs like “Overexpressed” are the perfect segue into a rind-less winter. Enough melancholy to fit the mood but enough energy to keep the blood flowing. Perfect.

Available for Free Download.

[PREMIERE] Noble Oak – “Another Way” // Aaron Fernandez

“This is the culmination of a long drought of inspiration. It truly was about finding another way, emotionally and physically; it was the last gasp of a long journey ending.” – Noble Oak

Noble Oak does his name justice by providing another solid jam to hold on to in these changing times. His debut album Past Life came out earlier this year and the whole thing is beautiful and comforting. To have a new single so quickly on the heels I wouldn’t imagine he is ever struck by droughts of inspiration. However his creative process works, it s great to have the featherlight good vibes of “Another Way” to get through this week.

Be sure to check out Noble Oak’s track “All I Said” on VINYL MOON Volume 014 which came out in November.

Walkingshoe – “Can’t Sleep” // Bob Dob

There is only so much rebelliously sweaty behavior a guy can get into before he needs to take a breather and reflect. Cheers to Walkingshoe for a fantastic soundtrack to both!

Stay tuned for more raucous jams from this guy…

Meeka Kates – “Wildfire” // Jeannie Phan

The latest Meeka Kates jam is another example of his fine ability to make jams that work perfectly well for both chilling out and dancing. I recommend alternating the two activities as you listen to “Wildfire ” on repeat this weekend.

Taken from Meeka’s debut EP ‘Wildfire’ out now.

Sorcha Richardson – “Lost” + “Ruin Your Night” // James Jean

For all of us who have been smitten with Sorcha Richardson since her debut song “Petrol Station” last year the wait for new music has been a long and patient one. Lucky for use she now has 3 new songs out that reveal more of her gentle voice and minimal production. She has stitched her heart on her sleeve and its beautiful stuff.

Get Sorcha Richardson’s debut song “Petrol Station” on VINYL MOON Volume 005.

G O O D W O O D A T O M S – “Dreaming About” + “Tech Know” // Jason Limon

Hold on tight because this dream is blasting off and taking you with it. Vancouver’s GOODWOODATOMS explode a swirling explosion of infectious riffs, grooves, and beats in “Dreaming About”. It is a weird and wonderful ride that any fan of early Everything Everything will enjoy. “Tech Know” slowly brings us back to earth for a bit… kinda… or are we still dreaming?

G.Smith – “Life Out” // Zedig

I’m currently loving just sitting here and letting G.Smith’s voice ebb and flow through my brain as I daydream about the holidays, the future, and spending time with a book this weekend. There are adventures ahead. “Life Out” is a great place to start them.

FIL BO RIVA – “Killer Queen” // Pedro Tapa

We’ve all had a killer queen. But I’m not sure I’ve ever had one the way Fil Bo Riva has. Love sure hurts and there is pain and heartache in every note of his voice as he longs for her.  I hope he gets her back… if only to reconnect with the muse that inspired such a fantastic song.
