Lowpines - Happy Halloween - 2018


Here it comes again 
Falling on my knees 
Summer’s at an end 
Fall is on the breeze 
why can’t you 
Ever be the same 
I don’t undersand 
Are you ever coming back 
We’ll keep off the grass 
I miss you 

Happy Halloween 
You playing card diamond queen 
Happy Halloween 
You call it a curse, no worse than it seems 

Looking to the street 
Looking for a strangers feet 
Ever wait so long 
Sure fire steps they seem so easy 
Had enough of these 
Days-of-sadness factories 
Why don’t you believe 
We all have to spend some 
Time on our knees 

Happy Halloween 
You playing card diamond queen 
Happy Halloween 
You call it a curse, no worse than it seems

Nest HQ
"Humans infectious indie-electronic sound continues to offer a signature minimal dance style”

Godwin - i know - 2018



Godwin immediately found success on his debut release, “Side”, as Atwood Magazine praised it for “a rich soundscape that invokes the importance of emotion” and prolific Australian producer Yoste subsequently delivered an official remix. While it was his first solo outing, Godwin originally broke into the music scene as a member of the Rise Records signed outfit, Valleyheart. His experience in the band alongside his years at Berklee provided a perfect starting point for him to pursue producing, mixing, and mastering his own material.

Hate Me - MISSY - 2018



Dunedin born, Auckland based producer, MISSY (Abigail Knudson) shares the bold follow up to her self-titled debut single released on independent New Zealand label, Black Lotus. In ‘Hate Me’, Knudson explores the depths of a fragmented, co-dependent relationship in a dark, twisted cacophony of sound bites and eclectic samplings - a cornerstone of her experimentative production style.

San Carol - "Turn To Dust" - 2018



Hotel Mira - Baby - 2018


Whether you are having major flashbacks, are living within it, or are looking forward to it, Hotel Mira’s "Jungle", is an ode to adolescence. The new single from the Vancouver – based band is a youthful, energetic anthem paying homage to the years of high school shenanigans.


Pamela Méndez- Time - 2018



Pamela Méndez is Switzerland’s best kept secret when it comes to singing and songwriting. Time to introduce her! Pamela is a singer blessed with a voice that can hardly be ignored. In her lyrics she manages to question societal issues without pointing any fingers. Songs are constructive, deconstructive. The Bernese news attests to her "unbelievable presence“ and for Der Bund's,  Ane Hebeisen,  Pamela Méndez's songs are "Artistically ravenous, full of clever ideas, which are never pandering, but go straight to the heart.”  This is what contemporary art-pop with a high musical standard sounds like. It is profound, yet danceable, confrontational but full of love and vision. 

SCRATCH MASSIVE - LAST DANCE - 2018



http://scratch-massive.tumblr.com

Virtuoso compositions, subtle synthetic atmospheres, voices oscillating between pure intentions and dreamlike fantasy, a confusion of feelings and desires, time and space. Garden of Love, the new album by electro duo Scratch Massive makes an impression from the first moments that you hear its enigmatic beauty. Like a ghost train moving along a tightrope - between shadow and light, failure and redemption, violence and melancholy - this fourth studio album reaffirms the Parisian DJ/Producer duo style/vibe with their hybrid sounds and sensory experiences.

He often wondered if he was the only one that felt like music spoke to him.

Voice of Aiko ‘PRESCRIPTION DREAM’ - 2018



'What drove us to launch this project was hearing the shocking statistics and stories about what potential harm medications prescribed by the doctor can cause and how easily this can be helped by us just talking about it more, allowing people to make informed choices. We hope that with this emotional song, Enya's stunning video, the artistic workshops and the weekly vlog we can raise awareness on this very important subject."

www.cityondownmusic.com

“City on Down gave a touching explanation to the video, saying “‘On My Way’ is a song that encapsulates our decision to pursue this musical dream, and truly shows the emotion behind our journey that we hope continues forever. What started as a leap of faith between two hometown best friends has become this amazing full-time chase that we’re so thankful for every day. The music video takes all the incredible moments from our first ever tour and puts them together to show how much we bonded as a group, and showcases just how much fun we always have on this wild ride called life.” - Substream

Tom Boy - How To Become a Drug Dealer - 2018


The connection between our reckless dependency on relationships gone bad and the damaging withdrawal symptoms that they evoked became too clear to ignore. “How To Become a Drug Dealer” paints a picture of addiction, drawing parallels between the relationships of drug-abuser/dealer and people in deteriorating relationships.

the smallest one - on a sailboat - 2018


this is an album about home. i'm never sure whether a lasting feeling of home exists. it seems there's always something to hope for, despite the achievement of prior hopes, and it could be, i think, that hope is what keeps us from home. 

STAFFERS - live in omaha 4​/​22​/​2018


this is the document of a 5 week tour supporting anna mcclellan and her new album yes and no. we were about a week in when this was recorded. 

Minus the Bear - Fair Enough EP - 2018



Minus the Bear is a product of the first two decades of this century. From their first show in 2001 to their impending dissolution at the end of 2018, the Seattle band thrived on the musical awakening in the era of the mp3, the internet, poptimism, and the crosspollinations generated from an expanded consciousness of new music forms. 

Moaning Lisa - Do You Know Enough? - 2018


Moaning Lisa is the product of four Canberra-based music grads who find purpose in making loud noises together. Their music operates on the edge of the grunge genre: somewhere between composed restraint and fuzzed-out, life-affirming alternative rock. Moaning Lisa create an atmosphere entirely of their own, in their raucous live shows that see them consistently pack out venues across Australia's East Coast. 

orchid mantis - kulla sunset - 2018


dyl caught me off guard with how good it is. Lots of bands struggle to find a balance between atmosphere and accessible song structure, this knocked it out of the park and then some. Good dang ambient pop.

SOUL ISLAND - Ocean - 2018



With an array of musical influences behind his back ranging from Caribou to Brian Eno, Daniele’s expansive palette reaches far and wide to underground and now dissolved acts of ‘70s and  ‘80s such as Hüsker Dü or Fugazi, although Soul Island’s particular sound could be more comparable to a blend of electronica, chillwave, ambient-house and alt-pop, expanding on timbres similarly likened to MGMT, Everything Everything and other uniquely sculpted pop groups of the new dawn.

Sci-Fi Romance - "Voices" - 2018




Los Angeles-based alt-folk band Sci-Fi Romance’s new album 'Dreamers & Runaways" expands on the textured blend of folk, Americana, punk, and metal influences the band has showcased on its previous releases. It is also the record where the social consciousness that has run beneath the surface of much of the band’s work takes center stage.

Novo Amor - Utican- 2018



An integral factor within the release of this album has been the concept of sustainability. The ambitious and visually stunning video for the album's title track won acclaim from charities (including Greenpeace, Plastic Oceans & Surfers Against Sewage), awards (Best Video at the AIM Awards and nominated for Best Alternative Video at the MVAs) and viewers around the world for highlighting the monolithic problem of plastic in our oceans and as a result of the issues raised in this video, a conscious effort has been made on all sides to reduce the amount of plastic involved with bringing Birthplace into the world.

The band was signed for a time to Morrissey’s Attack Records and recorded an EP produced by Noel Hogan of The Cranberries.

Eef Barzelay - This Flood Of Glory - 2018


Lisa/Liza - Momentary Glance - 2018


The six songs that make up Momentary Glance are expansive & trance-like, slowly unfurling over the course of forty-two minutes. The deep, natural reverb of hotel2tango & added atmospherics of Liza’s band mates create immersive environs for her patient guitar work & uniquely vulnerable vocals. Liza’s dreamlike lyrics often return to themes of winter, animals, nature as a source of reflection and the unwritten letter. 

Gentle Weirdos: Orindal Records Sampler Vol. 2 - 2018

soccer mommy - Henry / I'm On Fire - 2018


two nice sweet cover tracks out of Nashville...

modern folk trio band - the partisan - 2018


when they poured across the border 
i was cautioned to surrender 
this i could not do 
i took my gun and vanished. 

i have changed my name so often 
i've lost my wife and children 
but I have many friends 
and some of them are with me 

there were three of us this morning 
i'm the only one this evening 
but i must go on 
the frontiers are my prison 

an old woman gave us shelter 
kept us hidden in the garret 
then the soldiers came 
she died without a whisper 

oh, the wind, the wind is blowing 
through the graves the wind is blowing 
freedom soon will come 
then we'll come from the shadows

For Esme - Modern Love - 2018




“Whenever I find myself down in the well of self-loathing or in desperate need of affirmations, I always return to Joan Didion’s 1961 essay “On Self Respect”;” shares frontwoman Mar Meredith. “It is a bible of sorts for me — a map that leads back to myself. I wanted to create a similar signpost, for myself and others, to look at ourselves in the mirror and know: I am complete, I am in charge of my own life, I am responsible for my own mistakes and my own victories.“

Cat Power - 'Woman' - 2018




“Woman” follows in the vein of Cat Power’s best tracks, a quietly defiant song that asserts her own self-possession without having to yell it from the rooftops. Marshall sounds positively dangerous over a sashaying bass line—performed here by TV on the Radio’s Jaleel Bunton—while she spouts off sneak-disses like, “your money’s like a weapon, a tool to get me / you think I’m like the other ones / well, my money’s like a weapon, tool for me.” The word “woman” becomes both flippant tell-off and rallying cry, a way of saying, “I’m in charge here, chief. Your input is not needed.”
