"Sad Cowboy" by Goat Girl

This week we're featuring Goat Girl, a 4-piece group from South London that we don't want anyone to miss out on!  Although their second album On All Fours dropped back in the first quarter, we're of the thinking that this one is going to show up on a lot of Best Albums of 2021 lists.  Have a listen to Sad Cowboy here, but be sure to check out the entire album!   Read More...

"Oxygen" by Beach Bunny

Beach Bunny originated from lead singer Lili Trifilio's bedroom recordings back in 2015.  With several EP's and one studio album (2020), the 4-piece Chicago-based band is currently on tour in the US through later next month.  Hopefully, they're working on another album too.  Until then, enjoy the latest single Oxygen!

"Casita" by Goth Babe

Feeling a little grey as the weather turns?  No worries, Goth Babe's Casita will brighten up your day!  Griffin Washburn and his dog Sadie have been cruising the Pacific Northwest and he actually records and produces his music right out of his camper.  This single was born from a trip to California.  The video and lyrics will give you all of the good vibes that you need today! Read More...

"Go Down Together" by Foxing

Foxing's fourth album, Draw Down the Moon, dropped a few months ago in early August.  The St. Louis-based band has been through a lot, from multiple guitarists to a brutal trailer/equipment theft (on tour; 2015) to the pandemic, but perseverance shines through in their music.  Conor Murphy & Eric Hudson have been friends since middle school and bandmates since high school, so maybe that glue is what keeps the evolving sound of Foxing so interesting.  Check out Go Down Together and note that they spent ~400 hours of graphic design and animation work to bring you this video, enjoy!

"Be Gone from Me" by SUSTO

"I Haven't Been Doing So Well" by Frank Turner

A new Frank Turner album called FTHC is coming in early 2022!  The first single, I Haven't Been Doing So Well, is an ode to mental health which we're sure has surged and affected so many throughout the pandemic.  Turner is currently on the road - check out The Never Ending Tour of Everywhere 2022! Read More...

"Pulp" by Winnetka Bowling League

Matthew Koma (Bair) is a singer, songwriter, DJ and producer who has worked with a ton of artists worldwide, but do you know about his group Winnetka Bowling League?  The League only has a couple of EP's in their catalog, but they're working toward another one and we are digging the new single, Pulp.  Fun fact:  Koma is married to Hillary Duff, but this post is all about the music, check it out! Read More...

"McKenzie" by Houndmouth

Houndmouth are set to release their fourth full-length, Good For You, in less than a month.  Maybe you know these guys from their very popular 2015 hit, Sedona, or maybe you've followed their great storytelling throughout.  That storytelling remains evident and awesome on their newest single, McKenzie.  They're back out on the road next month with mainly East Coast appearances before heading home to Indiana, then beyond in December, check them out!   Read More...

"Those Words" by Mattiel

This week we're featuring the very talented Mattiel Brown!  Along with guitar and production handled by Jonah Swilley, Mattiel dropped two new songs this past April.  Those Words exudes fun, so check out the video that Brown produced, directed and edited! Read More...

"Now That I Know" by Grizfolk

Grizfolk pieced together their self-titled, 3rd studio album throughout the pandemic.  With band members split between LA and Nashville, you would never know it because the music sounds so tight, but this is simply what so many musicians have been forced to do.  Check out the animated video for Now That I Know below and give the album a listen through! Read More...

"running in place (alternate take)" by MisterWives

MisterWives released an awesome, alternate version of running in place from their album SUPERBLOOM.  The original piano piece, which is great in its own right, gets sped up and celebrates the 1-year anniversary of the 2020 album release.  If you missed this NYC-based band, then definitely go back and give them a listen, or catch them on tour this Fall! Read More...

"Piece Of Me" by The Bamboos

The Bamboos dropped their tenth studio album this past May, but six new songs are on the way!  Piece Of Me is one of those songs that will be included on an expanded, deluxe version of the Hard Up album.  We'll take all the Aussie funk that we can get! Read More...

"Wild Blue" by John Mayer

John Mayer's Sob Rock is a comfortable escape from the tumultuous times that we are living in.  With an obvious homage to the 80's (check out the cover and marketing campaign), you'll also find a stellar cast of producers and musicians if you dig through the liner notes.  Whether you love Mayer's touring with Dead & Company, or hate his clashes with the media, his talent is certainly on another level.  Enjoy Wild Blue! Read More...

"Survivor" by Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats

Nathaniel Rateliff has rounded up the Night Sweats for their third album coming this November!  After a solo release in 2020, get ready for another collaboration from these (8) talented humans.  The first single is powerful, and you're likely going to hear it for a long time (i.e. S.O.B.)...enjoy Survivor! Read More...

"Romeo" by Jungle feat. Bas

If you were waiting for three albums until Jungle finally had a feature, then your wait is over!  You know that J and T are going to bring the funky beat, and on Romeo Bas serves up some perfect, complimentary lyrics.  A storied encounter at Greatest Day Ever Festival led to a beautiful piece of Jungle's Loving In Stereo which is out now, check it out!    Read More...

"That Life" by Unknown Mortal Orchestra

After dropping the single Weekend Run earlier this Summer, Unknown Mortal Orchestra has followed it up with another one entitled That Life.  The song, inspired by a painting with "a mixture of crazy stuff going on, representing heaven, earth, and hell", throws a lot of good, band and in between at you, but hey, that's life!  Hopefully, we are driving toward a new album from the New Zealand-based outfit as it has been a few years since their last full-length release. Read More...

"Marigold" by Jelani Areyah

We came across the rising indie artist Jelani Areyah via Sirius XMU Sessions.  That led us to his new and first full-length album I've Got Some Living To Do.  The SoCal native is definitely drawing his own line and when listening through the album, he's asking all of us to do the same.  Check out the sensual, soulful Marigold! Read More...

"Dulceria" by AFI

A Fire Inside dropped their 11th studio album, Bodies, earlier this Summer.  We had featured them back in January (Escape From Los Angeles), but are happy to chalk them up again in the same year, especially since Billy Corgan co-wrote Dulceria!  Enjoy! Read More...

"Until the Night Is Gone" by Sleepwalkers

A couple of albums, led by a couple of brothers (Austin & Michael York), that's the Sleepwalkers.  Now there is even a couple of versions of their new single Until the Night Is Gone as they just released a remix featuring Corfu, but here's the original.  Enjoy it, and if you're like us, you're anxious to hear a couple more!   Read More...
