Childish Gambino – “Awaken, My Love!”

Donald Glover has been proving a lot recently that he is one of the more prolific creative minds out there today. He’s a successful stand-up and comedic performer, a skilled dramatic actor, a writer/director/producer/star of an acclaimed new television show Atlanta, and of course, a rapper/hip-hop artist. Under the stage name Childish Gambino he already…

Tonight: Rubblebucket

coverrubblebucket

Of the handful of bands that I consistently recommend seeing live, Rubblebucket has held a spot on my list since I first saw them in 2014. I’m convinced that most upbeat, dance groove-driven bands translate well to a crowd of people in terms of energy, but man oh man, does this one take energetic to…

The Leones just released a beautifully melancholic new Christmas single that’s sure to fall on the “love” side of your love/hate relationship with Christmas songs. Featuring a sleeve by local artist Mickey Harmon, “Ghosts Of Christmas” b/w “Blue Christmas” is a festival of naked emotion; “Ghosts Of Christmas” floats on cloud of piano and sweet reverb…

Xander Singh – “As Long As You’re Loved”

Former Passion Pit and Pepper Rabbit member Xander Singh has had a rough couple years – that’s all about to change with the release of his debut album, Muffin. We think “As Long As You’re Loved” is poised to explode – we dig the wonky warble in his unique brand of electronica. Fans of his ex-bands, Washed…

Night Drive – “Rise and Fall”

Texan duo Night Drive has just released a listen-worthy debut single called “Rise and Fall.” Their dark electro-pop combines driving beats with 80s pop sentimentality – what results is a dreamy atmosphere with a noticeable edge. Their contemporaries are CHVRCHES and Purity Ring, but could easily blend in with 1980s-era radio. Head over here to purchase…

DJ Equal – “Postcards (feat. Sam Island)”

NY act DJ Equal sent us his latest jam, “Postcards” and we think it is worth sharing. “Postcards” is not what you’d expect from a DJ from NYC – instead of oversaturated synths and bass drops, DJ Equal specializes in easy going indie-pop vibes. Surprisingly, “Postcards” sounds more like a Tame Impala song than a Skrillex song. Give…

Softer Still – “Eulogy”

UK shoegazey dream-poppers Softer Still caught our attention with their latest single, “Eulogy.”  The band truly nails the 80s dream-pop sound and brings it to a dark place, touching on themes of death, love, and lust. The band pairs far-off vocals with chorus-laden guitars and vintage vibes. Fans of Slowshine, My Bloody Valentine, or Yuck…

DANSU – “Do Do Do”

Dutch indie-pop trio DANSU recently released their debut single via Japanese label Thistime Records. “Do Do Do” is our recommendation – we dig the gentle electronica feels, the trio’s attention to writing strong pop melodies, and the song’s easily digestible structure. We’ve also embedded the trippy video for the song for your enjoyment, featuring some pretty…
