“Polaroid Season” is 3rd installment from Inspired & The Sleep’s AVO series and is a perfect soundtrack for skipping through tripped out dreamscapes on your way to a taco truck.
Stop what you are doing and dive into this brand new track from DYAN. “What Fiction Is For” is the first bit of new music we’ve had from them since their stellar debut LP Looking For Knives dropped last summer. It’s a dreamy, crunchy, and dancy jam that I’ll be spinning all week in anticipation of their set at our SXSW showcase on Saturday!
Plus, DYAN recently dropped a video for the smash title track from Looking For Knives. Its shot in an abandoned hotel and is a total visual treat.
Goodness knows that I’ll be doing my best to take it easy this weekend. And Cruels here will certainly help.
Get lost in the musical eyes of Mood Robot and let them pull you into “Drip” a couple times.
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.Â ‘Die Young’ EP out nowÂ 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)
This weekend, get into the good kind of tension with Nova Ray…
Time to collect some of your sorrows andÂ let Andrea Silva bottle it up with some of hers as we sing along to “Waltz” and all feel better at the end.
You’re just like the songs in my dreams
There are a handful ofÂ delicate grooves from Luu online but this love song is my favorite. AÂ love songÂ mixtape secret weapon.
NoMBe and his guitar continue breaking hearts and taking names with the follow up to “Wait”. Get into the video below.
ohh is there something that you need to have? if it’s indispensable,
something I can get arrested for, you got it, shorty say the word,
hell & bloody murder, ain’t no mountain high & hurdles are
unheard of your worth it
so teach me how to be all that you want
Look, you just have to be careful playing Magic Bronson too loud. The last time I turned these guys up to 11 the volume didn’t come down until a cop tapped me on the shoulder and asked me to remove my sweat soaked luchadorÂ mask before demanding I extinguish the palm tree fire raging behind me… (Still not sure how that happened. I blame “What I Did”)
But with all that said, I’ve got “Nervous” cranked to 11 right now and have no qualms about it. Neither should you.
If you have been paying attention these past few years then you already know that Nicky Blitz is dynamite. Now, for his debut label track he is making sure everyone knows by writing a song about himself… but pretending its about a girl. That is some Nicky Blitz clever shit. Love it. I can’t wait to hear more from this tiger.
If you were vibing hard to STAL’s instrumental cinematic jams a few weeks back then brace yourself for the wave of riffage that is their full band sound. “Get Out” crunches hard right out of the gate and doesn’t stop until you are moshing into your couch cushions. So nice to see such range from these guys!
Raener’sÂ “Miles 2” starts out like recent Bon Iver… but then gets so much better.* Things get delightfully weird and haunted as horns drift in and vocals drop out. RaenerÂ so beautifully blend so many things that I can’t help but keep playing “Miles 2” on repeat and discovering new layers with each spin.
*Especially when you see that this track long predates any releases from 22, A Million.
