Brett – “Modern Classic” // Abigail Goldman

Brett has been grinding out jams for years now but they are often so under the radar that a fan like me even misses them! “Modern Classic” was on their Dir Young EP last year but I’m just now catching up with it via some repeated listens. ‘Die Young’ EP out now via 10K Islands.

Don’t forget Brett’s early favorite “Rap Songs” which was one of my mist underrated songs on the first 6 years of The Burning Ear. (p.s. The Burning Ear is now 8 years old and approaching the 4000th post… woah)

Violet Sands – “Hello, I’m Free” // Katie Neece

Hold up, I think the ever eclectic Violet Sands just released my new favorite track of theirs. I’m gonna have to listen on repeat 7 or 8 ore times to full decide though… Pardon me.

“Hello, I’m Free” is about letting go, it’s about the modern imperative not to get lost in a world of distractions.

“Hello, I’m Free” is up there with “No Matter What” which was also featured on Vinyl Moon Volume 011.

Memoryy – “Turn It Up” // Mike Mezeul

Put a little heat into your night with new one from TBE fave Memoryy! From the “SKELETONS” LP coming in March. Memoryy himself says…

A few months back The Huffington Post wrote an article on me titled “Redefining Synth-Pop” & this fun 80’s throwback takes that headline & puts a big fat exclamation point on the end.
I have plans of carjacking a DeLorean, traveling back to 1986 & getting this song placed in a John Hughes movie montage of girls shopping or guys playing beach volleyball, or something like that.
