Arctic Monkeys Cover Stephen Fretwell’s ‘-‘

By Will Oliver, September 12th 2018

Arctic Monkeys are hard at work touring in support of Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino but a recent stop in New York brought them to Electric Lady Studios where they laid down two recordings as a part of the Spotify Singles series.

One was a live version of single “Four Out Of Five,” and the other was a cover of the Stephen Fretwell song “-” taken from his 2004 album Magpie and performed solo by Turner. Fretwell also played bass for The Last Shadow Puppets live during the The Age of the Understatement era.

“-” definitely fits the headspace and mood of the new era and it can be streamed below along with the live performance of “Four Out Of Five.”

Ritual Talk – More Than I Can Mention

By Will Oliver, February 12th 2018

Brooklyn’s Ritual Talk have just released their new standalone single “More Than I Can Mention.” It starts off as an enthusiastic slow-burn folk rocker, teasing some sharp guitar work and production as it slowly teases much more. Before you know it, it slowly expands into a much bigger art-rocker that still carries over those same impressive vocals, just with a totally new world supporting them. The group somehow manages to combine elements of folk, psych-rock and art-rock into one immediate and catchy three-minute wonder.

“More Than I Can Mention” is their first release via their own Sonosoma Records and can be found ready to stream below.

Language Arts – “With Me”

By Will Oliver, February 1st 2018

Canadian art-pop duo Language Arts are currently working on their third studio album with producer Joel Stouffer. If the rest of the tracks are as good as their latest offering, “With Me,” it’s sure shaping up to be a good one.

“With Me” is a shimmering effort led by its bassline, some dreamy instrumentals and appropriately sweet vocals that compliment it all nicely. The track was released through it’s official music video, which was directed by the team of Luke Mistruzzi and Maya Annik and filmed all over North America.

Enjoy the video for “With Me” below.

Hailing from Dublin, Ireland, Silverbacks are a rock band who are gearing up the release of their new EP Sink The Fat Moon via PK Miami Records.

Kae Dal – “Liar”

By Will Oliver, May 7th 2017

Hailing from Toronto, singer-songwriter Kae Dal has a gentle touch on latest single “Liar,” a synth-led love-song that beautifully expands around your heart with ease. It’s a gentle song that takes it’s time to blossom, but once it does, it sounds like a lush love child of Beach House and Sharon Van Etten. Yes, it is indeed that magical.

It was produced by Matt Tavares of BADBADNOTGOOD and is a big song that is one of the best songs of the year that not enough people are swooning over. Let me help you change that, enjoy “Liar” below and make it your duty to pass the song to one friend and have him or her do the same. It deserves to be heard.

Heavy Heart – “Fruitfly”

By Will Oliver, May 7th 2017

Heavy Heart are a indie rock group who hail from London, and bring a bit of the 90s Brit Rock sound with them.

Fans of Wolf Alice will want to keep a close eye on these group, who recently released their debut album Keepsake (via new independent label I Can & I Will – on raspberry red vinyl, hand-numbered and signed, limited to 300 copies), a collection of all the songs that they released last year, one each month.

The group has released a very 90’s-esque music video for “Fruitfly” a mesmerizing track that sounds like a mix of Wolf Alice, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and Lush. It’s a song drenched with emotional nostalgia, with a sense of longing, but also hope. It’s a lush listen, one that I hope you dive into below:

Premiere: Kamron Bahani – “Depersonalization”

By Will Oliver, May 1st 2017 — with 1 comment

We last caught up with Rockland County rapper (a hometown guy for us) Kamron Bahani last year when he returned with new single “La Leggenda.” If you don’t know Kamron, we’re here to help you correct that. His style is reminiscent of the golden era with a contemporary twist. He can do it all: have fun, be lyrical, make you smile, make you hate, all with the fundamental reasoning that human emotion correlates to expressionism.

He’s back this year with a new concept album DSM Vl that revolved around mental disabilities. The first offering from this exciting project is “Depersonalization,” a track that tackles multiple personality disorder. It’s a dense topic, not one to be taken lightly, but Bahani takes the sad subject and tries to deliver a fun track anyway.

The song is produced by Blu Majic, and features the natural evolution of an artist who continues to grow with every new release. If you track all the posts we’ve done over the years on this blog, back when he was rocking the Kuhlamity moniker, it’s amazing just how far he’s come.

We are proud to have the exclusive first premiere of “Depersonalization,” which you can stream right now below.

It seems like ever since the release of DSU in 2014, Alex G has been at it non-stop, releasing Beach Music, his first album for Domino Records in 2015, and of course, he toured non-stop and seemed to never take a break. Things were a little bit quieter for the band last year, but we had a feeling something had to be on the way. It was just a matter of time.

Sure enough, today Alex G has announced a brand new album named Rocket, which Domino will release on May 19 (preorder here). With today’s announcement he’s also released two offerings from the album, “Bobby” and “Witch.”
