Warm Binary – “Twin Oaks” // Mike Winkelmann

When the kids from Stranger Things grow up a bit and start dealing with a NIN obsession and hangovers and High School then Warm Binary will be the soundtrack to that show. I can’t wait.


[PREMIERE] Mexico City Blondes – “First Cut” + S/T EP

Mexico City Blondes has sure made us wait for it but today they finally release their debut EP. Anyone who has heard the blissed out “Fade” or more funked out guitar groover “Colors” will be as excited as I am. And even more exciting, TBE gets to premiere new single “First Cut”. Pairing Greg Doscher’s spaced out guitar work with Allie Thompson’s silky vocals, “First Cut” is a perfect reintroduction to the band and a killer song to open the EP. Crank it loud today and let it turn your mundane tasks into epic film sequences with hotter actors and better lighting.

Listen to the debut EP from Mexico City Blondes.  Read more

Mexico City Blondes – “Shot The Moon”

Sounds like… Mexico City Blondes are on track to keep unveiling one beautiful indie jam after another. They keep their balance of smooth and gritty just right.

Location: Santa Barara, CA

Future: More soon…

FMLYBND- “Letting Go”

Sounds likeFMLYBND are continuing their launch into the stratosphere and bringing their collection of big synth dance grooves and hushed vocals. Ride it!

Location: Santa Barbara, CA

Future: Catch FMLYBND on tour this spring supporting Milky Chance!

Mexico City Blondes – “Colors”

Sounds like… something wicked this way comes. Mexico City Blondes get a bit sinister with their second single and I’m loving the swagger. If “Fade” was waking up groggy eyed, “Colors” is that post-coffee confidence to go out and take the day by the balls. Top down, volume up, and with your eye on the prize. Just don’t forget to stop and smell the roses at 1:45. Gotta take some me-time, ya know.

Location: Santa Barbara, CA

Future: Get “Colors” on iTunes.

FMLYBND – “Young Wild”

Music for… making a statement. FMLYBND came on the scene strong last year and after a huge show at our 5 Year Anniversary Party dipped under the radar for a bit. Well the BND is back with “Young Wild” and its a slower burn than previous effort but just as infectious and anthemic.

Location: Santa Barbara, CA

Future: Their new EP, aptly entitled “Back to Life” is out Oct. 7.

[VIDEO] Mexico City Blondes – “Fade”

Sounds like… Santa Barbara is stepping up its game. First FMLYBND and now Mexico City Blondes. Only one song out but this new video cements them as ones to watch. Definitely no worry of them disappearing though…

Location: Santa Barbara, CA

Future: More sweet sultry sounds soon.
