Majik – “Paralysed” // Daniel Segrove

Majik have certainly had me paralysed before… and I welcome another round. Find your own calm with them on this newest jam as well as on “Closer” which was featured on VINYL MOON Volume 016.

moon:and:6 – “Apollo-Soyuz” // Piotr Krysiak

It’s pretty common knowledge that space is the place so when a band like moon:and:6 comes along and craft all their jams around the final frontier they have my attention. And when those songs are as beautiful and delicate as “Apollo-Soyuz” they sure keep my attention. Drift away in zero Gs with this one.

[DEBUT] Mosa Wild – “Smoke” // Adam Wilkoszarski

“Smoke” is the only Mosa Wild track so far but if you just listen on repeat 10 times then its basically a full album. And a solid one at that.

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.

When Absofacto leaves a light outside for you its best to go in and see what he has cooked up. In this case it’s an amped up little-Friday jam “Light Outside”. Hopefully there is more like this soon.

As we get ready to start the weekend its important to appreciate the value of a good vibe. People have been working all week and are just trying to get by. When someone encroaches on your vibe make sure to blast some Sigrid at them and sing-along through the disruption until your are back on vibe balance. Which wont be too hard with Sigrid’s grooves in your ear.

BF/C – “Knogar” // Dylan Schwartz
