morning jam xx: NZCA LINES “New Atmosphere”

4 Nov

NZCA:LINES

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!

late night listen xx: Ben Khan “Drive (Part 1)”

15 Apr

Ben Khan

I’m back from a road trip from Philly to Coachella and 4 glorious, ridiculous, absolutely incredible days in California. After two hours of sleep and a day working, I could not be more pumped to deliver you a dark, sultry, addictive new track from British dreamboat Ben Khan for tonight’s late night listen.

I’ve had “Drive (Part 1)” on repeat all day and definitely added it to the Makeout Music Playlist for your hearing pleasure. The track is from Ben Khan’s upcoming 1992 EP due out May 5th which you can pre-order now here! I’m already obsessed with the EP and can’t wait to hear more new music and am looking forward to his full length album. His music is perfect for getting down in a live setting and I’m also hoping he heads over to the States to grace us all with those knee-weakening tunes in concert.

To keep up with Ben Khan, follow him on Facebook, Soundcloud, Twitter, and track future shows on Songkick here.
