It’s new Sofi Tukker. WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO SAY? Ok, there is this…
“Hey Lion” is like a sonic snack. It’s not like “Drinkee” or “Matadora,” which were made as vibration journeys. “Hey Lion” is like the opening chant to Soft Animals… we want to welcome people into our version of this animal-world, where strength is soft and nobody is boss.”
And I’m falling gracefully

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!
Dreamers just keep getting better. From their killer debut single “Wolves” through a sweaty NYC live show I’ve been waiting for them to drop a proper release for a while now.

In keeping the grand tradition of their NYC hometown, Grassfight shamble along that fine line between chaos and fun. “Please Don’t Tell” is lose in all the right places while still being stuck on repeat (and stuck in my head). I recommend immediately putting this on your “can barely walk but would still like to sing along” playlist. Read more
Let yourself be risen up from the depths of your heavy weekend and slowly welcome the sunlight on the horizon. Its a new day. Its a new week. Shed the weight below and look up to the brightness. Read more
f you haven’t flung your keyboard to the floor and whipped your office mate into a frenzy of arm twirls by the time “Drinkee” hits the 3 minute breather section then you aren’t doing it right. Rewind, start again, and remember to catch your breath at the appropriate time or you might pass out from fun. Read more
The weekend is here and its time to lay claim to what is yours! To get out into the world, with a horn fueled soundtrack in your ears, and dominate downtown with a strut and shake that will be felt across the river. Shakedown” is a silly song to write about because it demands its attention out doors; pouring from balcony windows and rusty ghetto-blasters.
