kodiak walks the fine line of hating the game of Getting Famous On The Internet while acknowledging that he’s as involved in the system as anyone else. In different hands, this self-awareness could get somber, but kodiak keeps his tongue firmly in his cheek and has a blast with “lol”. And when the artist is having this much fun, it’s infectious.
The bass in the chorus for “Wild” , the new jam from recent TBE faves Captain Kidd, is worth the price of admission on its own. But the plush vocals and effortless groove are no slouches, either. Equally suited for chill background vibes or full eyes-closed immersion. There’s just something about this song.
Get immediately transported to a smokey wooden barroom with “Caesar Knows”. From the first squawk to the last yell, Oliver Hazard wastes no time dialing in the Americana joy and getting your feet stomping. This is the first song on their Soundcloud, so hopefully this is a sign of more great things to come.

Enjoy it. I sure as hell will be.
I was lucky enough to see DYAN perform their first live show ever last
Tighten up your shoelaces because DYAN’s new single “Days Upon Days” gets my feet moving quick and has me considering the kind of street parkour that should certainly not be attempted with large headphones or a body that can’t even touch its own toes. But after a proper stretch then its let loose all the new inspired dance moves.
The debut LP Looking
This new Nick D and The Believers jam is exactly what we need for these slowly warming June days. Full of sunshine and spunk but still kinda preferring to remain somewhere comfortable. The sonic equivalent of a basement pillow fight. Really spontaneous and fun, but not needing much prep, clean up , or energy.Â Read more
