Shallou x RKCB – “Slow” // Ana Maria

This is the what dreams are made of. Two TBE heavyweights collaborate on a track and it melts right through my speakers. I could definitely get down with a whole EP of jams like this.

Vinyl lover rejoice because both RKCB and Shallou were featured on Vinyl Moon! Volume 001 and 002 respectively. Drool as necessary.

EXES – “Like You” // Connor Willumsen

it stings
lookin’ at you lookin’ at me and i’m feeling something
your fingers
burnin’ on my skin but my touch is doing nothing

For a band called EXES it is no surprise that they nail modern heartache so perfectly. Every lyric stings because it feels so real. We have never been more connected by cheap airfare and fast internet but if the spark in the heart isn’t there it hurts like hell. Thank you EXES for putting that pain to song for all us hopeless romantics.

Get into more EXES here and check out their fantastic track “twentythousand” on VINYL MOON Volume 013. It’s an honor to feature them and I can’t wait to hear what they do next.

Karl Kling: The VINYL MOON Interview

The Burning Ear and Karl Kling go waaaaaay back. As an integral member of RAC, Karl has been on our radar both through his remixes and contributions to the live show. Watching him branch out into solo stuff was exciting to say the least. Perhaps the only thing more exciting was being able to feature one of those tracks,  “I Will Wait”, on VINYL MOON. Karl has been playing on the RAC/Big Data tour and I recently caught up with him before a huge LA show.

RKCB: The VINYL MOON Interview

For a band whose music is tailor made for nighttime activities it made sense that there wasn’t much revealed about them in the early days. No photos, no website, and no live show until pretty recently. For some bands that feels like a gimmick, but now that those things have emerged it is clear that Riley and Casey are simply all about the music. They weren’t going to put energy into anything that detracted from the songs. And it shows. Its been an honor to hear them evolve and reveal over this past year and I’m proud to present this Interview I recently had with them to celebrate the inclusion of “Baptize” on VINYL MOON Volume 1.
