Headphone Hair – “Bleeding Game”

bleeding

Headphone Hair is the moniker of Ian Walters, a 6th grade History and Science teacher from Oakland. Outside of the classroom, his passion is music, and we dig his latest single “Bleeding Game.” It caught our ears for his hushed falsetto (a la Bon Iver) and use of left-field instrumentals like xylophone and trombone… Plus,…

Rich List – “Esha Ness”

A little bit of history for y’all – Esha Ness was the name of a race horse that ran the second-fastest time in history, and famously “won” a race that never was. Electro-pop activists Rich List have cleverly turned that experience into a metaphor for the human condition… But we dig it for its retro…

B O K E H – “Don’t Leave The Fire”

We think you should check out B O K E H (sic), the alter-ego for Berlin-based solo artist Chloë Lewer. The video for “Don’t Leave The Fire” is a glorious look at what might be a dancefloor/go-kart track hybrid, juxtaposing shots of B O K E H racing around the track with segments of her marching around with her squad. Beyond the epic…

Evan Wize – “Bad Habits”

“Bad Habits” has been a hit at the buffaBLOG offices lately, and for good reason. Evan Wize is an electropop whiz kid from Philadelphia. We recommend the sultry groove of his latest song, “Bad Habits.” Wize combines mysterious chords and menacing funk-bass with accessible lyrics and a pop-minded approach… All in all, a worthwhile listen. Give…

Wyldest – “The Poet”

We’re over here grooving to the latest dream pop jam from London power trio, Wyldest. Swirly guitars, hushed vocals, and a deeply groovy drum beat permeate this track… This is one of those jams that isn’t an outright dance banger, but still gets your body moving in its own, understated way. Fans of Warpaint and Blonde Redhead…

SNBRN & BLU J – “You Got Me (ft. Cara Frew)”

snbrn

Mmmm, nothing like a good house jam to kick off the weekend. LA producer SNBRN teamed up with fellow producer BLU J and songstress Cara Frew to put together “You Got Me,” a catchy and hard-hitting slice of West Coast house. Frew’s voice floats beautifully overtop SNBRN and BLU J’s groove heavy production work. “You Got…

we are, et al. – “A Burlesque Chorale”

If you’re in the mood for some ambient alterna-rock, we recommend the mysteriously-named we are, et al. and their new song, “A Burlesque Chorale.” The San Francisco collective is self-described as “world rock,” and brings to mind other acts like Bjork, Anathallo, and Freelance Whales. We were drawn in by their simmering intro and otherwise chill-out vibes. If…

Killer Dale – “Under Control”

dale

This one goes out to the lovers of slacker rock… Killer Dale dusted off their four-track recorder during a hot and wet New Orleans summer. What resulted was “Under Control,” a beautifully “sloppy” (their words) jam that “perfectly captures the time and place that it was birthed.” This one has the kind of lo-fi vibes…

Alex Napping – “You’ve Got Me”

Dang! We are very much enjoying the new single from Brooklyn/Austin hybrid act Alex Napping. Fans of Hop Along, Angel Olson, or Courtney Barnett will be into this one – the band combines expressive guitar lines with neurotic drum beats and an angelic, female-fronted vocal delivery. Keep an eye out for their next release, Mise En Place,…
