I gotta be careful hiking with Ralph because with “Something More” in my headphones I’d be liable to leave everything behind to follow her if she asked.
Long time TBE faves Bear Mountain just got remixed by new TBE favorites mAsis and its got me swimming in a dream state of pulsing grooves and spinning. The track starts with a slow yawn like a weekend morning and methodically builds its way towards the coffee pot.
Don’t sleep on the original for once you fully wake up from the dream.
“Give It Up” comes from Bear Moutain’s sophomore album Badu due out September 9th, pre-order the record here.

Jobs and tales of workplace drudgery are everyday normal occurrences for most guys, me included. But none of my songs I’ve ever whistled while I worked do quite the trick that cranking up “It’s A Job” is doing today. Wolfie’s Just Fine makes me want to stand on my desk and sing along before going outside for a 5 minute break to bask in a few rays of sun. Its a mini vacation for the mind. A quick trip somewhere with a bit more wonder then my own office. Read more
New York City AND Canada are about to invade Los Angeles as the excellent Dreamers and their tour-mates Arkells hit the Roxy on March 10th. We’ve been huge Dreamers fans since we fell in love with “Wolves” and got to see it live in NYC a few years ago. I can’t wait to hear the rest of their new EP live! And really looking forward to catching Arkells live as well.
And get prepped!

They say not to stare into the sun because it will make your whole world go bright and you won’t be able to see the things around you anymore. With Hans Island in my ears that doesn’t really sound so bad…
Nobody likes to feel inadequate but we all know those people that just ooze a coolness we cant help but envy. “Cool Friends” rides a weird line between fragile anthem and smitten ode. It’s aspirational and self effacing all at once. A raw tale of feelings that we can all relate to. Read more
There isn’t much to do in this October California heatwave then strip off your sticky clothes and put on a record for daydreaming. Drift off into a nap or think about that one time, well, you remember… I’m a little late to Seoul’s stellar album I Become A Shade but its the exact right record for these afternoons. Dreamy and groovy in all the right ways. Turn it up and float away.
