Nicky Blitz – “Blast Off” // Brock Kenzler

“Blast Off” is back! After recently signing to a major label, TBE fave Nicky Blitz has been crafting some new magic for us and that includes this re-work of this instantly-memorable surf rock jam. “Blast Off” is filled with chants and rhythmic clapping to rock your socks off.  Nicky uses a classic lineup of instrumentation to remind its listeners of why surf rock was amazing then as it is now.  Don’t eat before you surf on this one, in this case, because you’ll probably end up sprinting in the sand and riding the tide with joy.

[PREMIERE] Nicky Blitz – “Dynamite” // James Jean

If you have been paying attention these past few years then you already know that Nicky Blitz is dynamite. Now, for his debut label track he is making sure everyone knows by writing a song about himself… but pretending its about a girl. That is some Nicky Blitz clever shit. Love it. I can’t wait to hear more from this tiger.

Nicky Blitz – “Alex (Amtrac Remix)”

Damn I love Amtrac! Just when you think he has turned his back on the kind of offbeat jams that endeared him to me so many years ago, he flips Nicky Blitz’s “Alex” into a somber and slender jam for falling asleep to. But don’t actually fall asleep, you’ll want to loop this one on repeat.

[LA EVENT] The Burning Ear @ The Spare Room Hollywood

If you are in Los Angeles this Thursday night then you know that the place to be is The Spare Room in Hollywood. This week I’ve got some great music lined up from TBE favorites and new comers. AJ Jackson from Saint Motel will be Djing sweet jams between sets. Nicky Blitz will be playing live and we will be hearing his latest killer song “Alex” which is awesome. And newcomer Jerome Holloway will be starting things off slow and soulful. Come out and hang with some great music and fantastic cocktails. And remember, its free!
