Another beautiful gem from the world of Salt Cathedral.
why you gotta take the long way
keep on arguing the wrong way
calibrate your love the right way
don’t just sit there
and watch it drain
You can catch their stunning “No Ordinary Man” on VINYL MOON Volume 012 and keep an eye out for big SXSW announcements from both them and me that may actually be the same event…
Its the weekend and you’ll do what you want! Even if it is hollow inside. Don’t let anyone tell you how to be a vector. Flamingosis and I have your back (and your soundtrack!)
If The National are a bit to polished for you then get into their slightly scrappier kin Hypluxo whose debut album If Language is a fantastic soundtrack for winter daydreaming.
Catch the video for my favorite track “Fronts” below.
They say that home is where the heart is but maybe home is just wherever you can crank up Hayes Peebles full volume and kick up some dust with a bit of a two-step you have been working on?
Hayes Peebles’ new EP Ghosts will be released on February 10th
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.
When the apocalypse comes sooner than you expect and half your team doesn’t make it through the first wave and your weapons are on the fritz sometimes you just have to turn up the Twin Wave in your cyborg earpiece and roll with it.
Brooklyn’s Twin Wave make the kind of gloom-rock grooves that are perfect for these ever-shorter days and colder nights. “Matador” (below) is perfect for dancing your way through some fresh heartbreak.
I get the feeling that Ben Talmi knows what it’s like to see a weekend approaching and not feel in any state to enjoy it. “Play” feels like an anthem for turning life’s toughest twists into something fun. What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger and right now listening to “Play” on blast is definitely making me stronger. It’s Ben and I against the weekend!
Dive into more Ben Talmi with his jumping-on-the-bed jam “Pure” as well.
It’s a big week for Fort Lean! Their album Quiet Day is finally out in Europe! And they dropped a video for “New Hobbies” (below). AND they have 2 brand new tracks out! “Easily” is on heavy rotation around here with it’s laid back grind/groove fitting perfectly with this Summer sun sitting outside my window. The more I listen, the more I want to get outside! But then I watch the “New Hobbies” video and get scared about ever leaving the house again…
Anyone paying attention knows I love me some Skyes and that their song “Dry” is my absolute jam. So its an honor to premiere their new video for it and all of it’s paranoid party vibe glory. The song is already beautifully haunting so its fitting that he video follows suit. Start your weekend off with a healthy dose of skepticism for everyone around you! Or at least start it off with “Dry” on repeat :)
p.s. Keen eyes will catch Ben from Paperwhite in the video!
Sometimes the best part of a city is the view from the outside. Cheers to distance and perspective.
All we want is to go back
To when we weren’t possessed
On leaving our lives a mess
Shoot before you’re shot
As this world falls apart
Oh what to do when your head is in the clouds but so is all the rain. Read more
