Thank goddess for whatever Tame Impala/Nile Rodgers inspired acid trip Beck was on at the time of writing his new single, “Dreams”, because this song is what my dreams are made of.
I could have lived off the heart and mind explosion his last album Morning Phase caused me, but I’m glad he’s back to kick it up a notch with this new single and ultimately new album. “Dreams” is out now on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon. Listen to “Dreams” via Spotify below.
Beck will be playing Nile Rodger’s FOLD (Freak Out Let’s Dance) Festival in Riverhead, NY on August 4th! I would love to see Nile Rodgers play the guitar part of “Dreams” at this festival…just throwing it out there Beck/universe (make this happen!). Get your tickets now here!
It’s Wednesday, and sometimes, half way through the week, you need something to pump up your morning. Like the biggest cup of espresso you’re local coffee shop will legally let you have, Foals new single “What Went Down” will kick your day into high gear.
“What Went Down” is the title track and first single from Foals upcoming new album available for pre-order now here. The new album is set to release in stores on August 28th.
After hearing this new single, I can’t wait to get my hands on the new album, and the ultimate dance workout at their live shows. Here’s hoping Foals come back to the US soon for a headlining tour! We desparately need them back in Philly to play a headlining show (and not a giant stadium for 20 minutes for a radio station that doesn’t even play their music). It’s been way to long, and seeing Foals live is an absolute must for all fans. This band exudes so much energy live it could light the city for three months. Listen to the track below and pre-order the album What Went Down here!
Ladies, the struggle is real…and London’s Misty Miller created the perfect song to represent our woes in “Next to You”. Misty Miller co-directed and edited the video with Milo Edwards and filmed at her apartment, The Fox on the Hill, and “that Burberry acoustic bench in Wimbledon”. Watch the video for the song below. You can download the single for free now here!
Although she has no upcoming US tour dates yet, Misty Miller is playing Bushstock in London on June 13th! For tickets and more information click here!
Today, a somewhat unsuspecting day, I opened up Spotify to add more jams to my nostalgia playlist when it happened. I clicked my notification, was it a new follower? New album? No. It was a new single from one of my favorite musicians and people of all time, NZCA LINES. I’ve been wondering when we would be treated with new music from him all year and today is that blessed day. His new single “New Atmosphere” is more beautiful than you could have ever hoped or dreamed. Listen below:
“New Atmosphere” is releasing on Moshi Moshi Singles club on December 8th on limited edition 7″ vinyl and download! You can pre-order it now here. I will continue to keep you posted on all new music from NZCA LINES and word of his new album as soon as I hear it.
One of my favorite new bands, Jaws, have released their debut album Be Slowly just in time to become your fall/winter soundtrack. The album has the Jaws tracks that already made it to your heart, their singles “Gold”, “Think Too Much, Feel Too Little” and the title track “Be Slowly”. With the addition of seven other blissful, gritty, and raw tracks that will make your body move, you are bound to play it on repeat. The album is 41 minutes to get lost, and found in. Listen to the album below via Spotify, and buy the album here!
Philly’s own Cruisr just signed to Vagrant Records and are set to release an EP All Over that sounds so much like summer it can keep you warm through that harsh Philly winter we are all dreading.
All Over starts out with the warm, summery title-track and soothingly transitions into the sugary sweet sing-a-long jam “Kidnap Me”. The last track “Don’t Go Alone” is another upbeat jam that will get your feet moving and blood pumping. Listen below!
Cruisr’s All Over EP is out today on Amazon, iTunes and Spotify! Cruisr will be headlining Boot & Saddle on October 8th to play the upbeat, addictive tracks live. Dream Safari and Suburban Living will be supporting so make sure you get there at 8PM to catch the opening acts. Tickets are only $10 and you can get yours now here!
I am loving this super smooth jam from London’s Memory Maze.
“Like A Mirage” has soft, seductive vocals and bass with instrumentals that will keep your hips moving and heart breaking. Memory Maze are due to release an album later this year!
You can keep track of when Memory Maze will tour in a city near you by following them here.
