Mayaenova – “The Pain Inside Your Head” // Matthew Pettit

This song takes me back to high school, trapper keepers, seeing my crush in the hallway between English and History – and having her totally ignore me.

Night Drive – “Rise and Fall” + “Rise and Fall (Classixx remix)” // Kelly Tunstall & Ferris Plock

Five minutes after I switched on “Rise and Fall”, I came to having turned off all the lights in my apartment and created a full-scale light show with every glowing object I owned. I either need help or more lights, and I’m leaning heavily towards the latter.

Hovvdy – “Problem”

A Hovvdy song is like a wave from a stranger as you sit on your porch with a rapidly warming beer. It’s a brief but pleasant moment that you hope happens again soon. Because there are just not enough waves from strangers anymore. And not enough Hovvdy songs either. But there is the full LP Taster out April 15.  Read more

Max Frost – “Withdrawal”

Beware, the new jam from Max Frost is just soulfully funky enough to slightly alter your perception of the world. The kind of song that makes objects seem larger, brighter, and downright sexier then they oughtta be. You will want to exercise caution if listening to “Withdrawal” in public.  Read more
