“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.
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?
Nothing beats getting a bit weird and wild with some old friends. And when they are too far away to see all the time you can crack a beer and crank some Jane’s Party for a similar good-times effect.

There’s a voice I always trust
Its friendly helping hand tells me leave, I must
“Lauren” is the perfect song for extending a beautiful summer season as deep into fall as possible. This bassline will be keeping me warm under my headphones for months to come…
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!
