Naadei – “Cool Friends” [Prod. Shaqarts]

Nobody likes to feel inadequate but we all know those people that just ooze a coolness we cant help but envy. “Cool Friends” rides a weird line between fragile anthem and smitten ode. It’s aspirational and self effacing all at once. A raw tale of feelings that we can all relate to.  Read more

Seoul – “White Morning”

There isn’t much to do in this October California heatwave then strip off your sticky clothes and put on a record for daydreaming. Drift off into a nap or think about that one time, well, you remember… I’m a little late to Seoul’s stellar album I Become A Shade but its the exact right record for these afternoons. Dreamy and groovy in all the right ways. Turn it up and float away.

Get the I Become A Shade LP.  Read more

Tep No – “Swear Like a Sailor”

Another dreamy/sexy jam from the unstoppable Tep No for your weekend. Its the hazy tropical groove for whistling along to as you flip the bird to the workweek, your worries, and Taylor Swift.

I had a thought, running through my head
Now you’re gone, I don’t remember it
I had the life, and then I see you
Now our love is all see through

Bear Mountain – “Hopeful”

Bear Mountain said they wrote this new one about being “Hopeful” for the future and the paths ahead which is fitting because hopeful is exactly much how I feel whenever I hear their jams. Something about their upbeat grooves and down to earth vocals are surefire way to get my mood up. For severe cases of mood funk just go see them live because thats a damn treat. Looking forward to more from these guys this year!  Read more

Tep No – “Safe Dream” Feat. Heather Janssen

The magical Tep No returns with another gem. “Safe Dream” is perfect for drifting off to the sound of rain on the windows. A sound we have been blessed with here in Los Angeles. Turn it up and bliss out.  Read more

Earth Rides Along – “Cheap Shots And Two Dollar Beers”

Things get a bit weird when you hang out with Earth Moves Along. Well, to be fair, they start out pretty weird, but get even weirder too. Crumbling cars give way to crippled bikes. Stray dogs become wingmen at the bar. Dial up modem sounds turn into a drinking song. Its all a haze in the end but your wallet didn’t take much of a hit so you stab a flag of victory in the next morning’s egg sandwich.  Read more

[PREMIERE] Avid Walker – “Sun In Eyes”

Take a step back from the hullabaloo and bask in the light of the Summer with the calming sounds of Avid Walker massaging your Thursday nerves. “Sun In Eyes” is the perfect song for the calmer side of these hot months. Basking solo by the pool. Getting into that book you have meaning to finish. Exploring abandoned desert shacks. Or just walking. Avidly walking. Like we are supposed to do when we want a break from life.  Read more
