Tegan and Sara – “I Was a Fool” (SPEAK Remix)

Music for… Tegan and Sara fans who wondered what Heartthrob would have sounded like with a bit more edge. The wonderful dudes in SPEAK give us a taste by taking “I Was A Fool” through the back door of the madhouse and letting it play with the slightly unhinged.

Location: Austin, TX

Future: SPEAK will be opening for RAC on his upcoming tour, PLUS a show opening for Future Islands here in lucky-ass LA. See dates here.

[VIDEO] MEGA Music Video Roundup – 8.22.14

It has been a hooooot minute since I dropped some magical eye candy music video madness on you but since its Friday and you are half checked for the weekend anyway I’m giving you the mother load here. Do not watch these if you have had too much coffee. Your brain may pop. But don’t skip any videos either! No cheating.

Alright, I’ve got my snacks. Lets go!

Chet Faker – Gold

GodWolf – See It Through Read more

Madi Diaz – “The Other Side” (SPEAK Remix)

It’s the calm before the storm. That quiet moment walking between the loud music of your car and the bass bursting through the door of the house party. Its faint at first but you know what is coming. And you can’t wait.

SPEAK – “Gates” (Ra Ra Riot Remix)

I love when great bands are friends with each other because then magical little nuggets of bass funk get made and we get to ride them into our own Nintendo dreamscapes.

SPEAK – “Gates”

Sounds Like: A beautiful future where synths take a backseat to innovative songs with interesting structure and no fear of guitar solos.

Location: Austin, TX

Future: A tour with Gemini Club and The Griswolds in June. Hot damn.

TBE Homies Speak just announced a tour with RAC so you know half the country just checked their calendars (don’t be in the wrong half!). To celebrate they released a new jam “Be Reasonable, Diane” and it couldn’t be sweeter. These guys from Austin craft some of the finest soulful yet party worthy tracks around. First a killer Los Angeles residency at The Bootleg and now this? 2014 is going to a be big year for Speak.
