Lincoln Jesser – “In My Place”

Sometimes relationships turn dark and the only way to deal with them is with equally dark maneuvers. Lincoln Jesser embraces a bit of that darkness in his slightly haunting, highly groovable, new single. Its a big evolution for TBE fave Jesser and it makes me damn excited for what he has coming up for us.  Read more

[PREMIERE] Lincoln Jesser – “Run My Heart” (Twin Shadow Cover)

[soundcloud id=’134772808′]

Today is a special day in so many ways. Its Friday, its Valentines Day, and its day 2 in the release of TBE 5 Year Album tracks. This one comes from Los Angeles’ Lincoln Jesser who delivers a fantastic take on Twin Shadow’s “Run My Heart”.

Lincoln Jesser has been going strong for months now, releasing great tracks on the regular. His signature mix of synth and soul makes each new track highly anticipated. However, I don’t think anyone is ready for the magical things he did to “Run My Heart”. That slow grind drop gets me every time.

The Happy Birthday TBE Album – With exclusive covers and remixes from Noah Hyde, Pr0files, Lincoln Jesser, Parade of Lights and more…

This is just a teaser to get you all as excited as I am. To celebrate the 5th birthday of The Burning Ear I’m putting together an album of exclusive remixes of covers of the best TBE jams of the past 5 years. Contributing artists like Pr0files, Noah Hyde, Lincoln Jesser, Y Luv, Wiley Webb, Memoryy, Germany Germany, and more will be remixing or covering songs by Miike Snow, Twin Shadow, Scavenger Hunt, Yeasayer, Phosphorescent, Rhye, Frank Ocean, and more.

The list goes one and makes my heart skip a beat every time I read it. And dont even get me started on heart skips when I LISTEN to these jams. Holy cow. You guys are in for a treat.

AND THEN, there is the epic album artwork above created by the amazing Meghan Ellie Smith. I’m basically a mess of excitement over here.

Stay tuned. The project rolls out next week….


[MP3] Lincoln Jesser – “Tops”

Lincoln Jesser - Tops

Fresh off of killing it at Blind Date last month, Lincoln Jesser has dropped “Tops”, a track that shot to the top of the HypeM charts before I even had a chance to post it! With dizzy synth grooves and Lincoln’s smokey vocal, it’s no surprise why! I’m hearing a lot of Christopher Norman in this jam and I’m loving it.

[MP3] Lincoln Jesser – “We’ll Be Fine”

Los Angeles’ Lincoln Jesser hits just the right Friday afternoon spot with “We’ll Be Fine”. It’s a gentle electro-pop groover that is helping me shift gears from this hectic work week into the weekend of fun ahead. If you are feeling sressed today, just remember that “we’ll be fine”. Its true. Especially with jams like this in rotation.
