Slow Shiver – “In Blue (Drive By Delivery)” // Matthew Simmonds

Sometimes life’s most special moments happen in strange places. Locations you are just passing through become the home for a beautiful memory. If only you could take those places with you. Put them in your pocket and revisit them at will. In the meantime, the stunning “In Blue (Drive By Delivery)” seems to be able to take me back to just about anywhere I want if I close my eyes hard enough.

This is the debut original track from Slow Shiver but you can get more your life via the beautiful track with Anoraak below as well as under his previous incarnation as Valente.

“Key To Life” is the 3rd cut from debut album Regrowth due early 2017.

Isle & Fever – “Dime Piece” // Jerkcurb

In the immortal words of the lizard man who whispered in my ear last night at the lounge club: “Who needs another dime when you slowly lose your mind…” He has a good point. I’m going to discuss more with him later at the beach with Isle & Fever on blast.

Calvin Markus – “Wake” ft. Jade Puget” // Clint Soren

This one is for Sunday mornings light on memories yet heavy on thoughts. Nothing to do but hydrate and power through. And perhaps play these jams on repeat a bit.

Calvin Markus’ band Dead Times was also featured on VINYL MOON Volume 007. So a lot of our favorite talents going on here.

BRANDYN BURNETTE would like to STATE some things I’M down to believe IN. Especially the INNER CHILD in me.

Half of this song was written when I was a kid.
The other half was written recently.
After all that time, this is the state i’m in.

Brandyn’s words above about “State I’m In” say things better than I could.

DYAN have me LOOKING deep into dreamstates FOR adventures so i’d better put down any KNIVES

Every time I listen to this song I’m taken away. Lifted right out of my body and sent on a journey. I can’t promise it will take you to the same places it takes me but if your headphones are on just right and the volume properly blocks the outside world then you’ve got 6 minutes of traveling to do. Enjoy it. I sure as hell will be.

I was lucky enough to see DYAN perform their first live show ever last weekend and it was a beautiful thing. Also, “Looking For Knives” is the title track off of DYAN’s full length debut which is out July 29th. Get on it! (And check out some of the story behind this song over at Popmatters)

Previously on TBE: “St. James” and “Days Upon Days”
