You heard it here first: FnB (also known as FARM & BASS) is the next big genre, following a surge in new genres and styles over the course of this year thus far. The first few flames of FnB were left behind by DJ Tracktor (rest in peace) about a decade ago, and since then

Bearson – “Imposter” (feat. Mark Johns)

Bearson – “Imposter” (feat. Mark Johns) Bearson’s newest track is impressive in every way possible. The Norwegian artist collaborated with Moving Castle collective member Mark Johns, and I’m extremely excited to listen to this endlessly over the next few days. Big fan of the Moving Castle folks, and all of their artists seemingly fail to ever disappoint.

Sivu – “The Nile” (feat. Rae Morris) Official Video

Sivu – “The Nile” (feat. Rae Morris) Really loving this new official video for “The Nile”,  the first track released since Sivu’s debut album “Something On High” (which by the way was an amazing album). Sivu worked with Rae Morris on this still unreleased track, and the two harmonize flawlessly. I was extremely happy to see

Hazel English – “Never Going Home”

Dreamy indie-pop..

Hazel English – “Never Going Home” The folks over at Majestic Casual have found a real gem in Oakland indie-pop artist Hazel English. The first thing that came to mind when I heard this was, “Am I listening to the female counterpart of Day Wave?”, which I think is a pretty fair thing to say. Both

An amazing "neon 80s" remix..

Phantogram – Fall In Love (Ardency Remix) If you haven’t already heard Ardency’s remix of Phantogram’s track, “Fall In Love”, do yourself a favor and listen to this as soon as possible. “Fall In Love” was off Phantogram’s 2014 album “Voices” and was arguably the most noteworthy track off of it.

Ta-ku – “Love Again” (feat. JMSN & Sango) Been loving Ta-ku’s music for some time now, and it’s been great to see his style constantly developing. leading up to the unique and alternative style heard in “Love Again”. Originally found him during my “Nujabes phase” (I feel like everyone needs to have that at some

Iron & Wine – “Naked As We Came” (Broke For Free Remix)

Chillwave? is best

This amazing remix of “Naked As We Came” was posted just two days ago and is already one of my favorite releases of the year thus far. Oakland native Tom Cascino, a.k.a. Broke For Free, is a bedroom producer making “chillwave?” beats that are posted for free on his BandCamp page, licensed entirely through Creative Commons.

Bob Saget on “Sway in the Morning”

Bob Saget is back in action

Bob Saget (yes, the dad from Full House) recently had an interview spot on Sway in the Morning, the popular radio show known for fantastic freestyles and hilarious moments with the faces of hip-hop music. Why Bob Saget was on Sway, I have no idea. I also have no problems with this. I’m extremely satisfied, if

Chill Alternative -ish Selections Vol. 3

Chill Alternative -ish Selections Vol. 3 On my SoundCloud, I’ve been making playlists based on the general feel of the music I’ve been listening to lately. A lot of what I listen to is alternative music on the mellow side, which I tend to refer to as “chill alternative” or “indie chill”. Alongside chill alternative I’ve been working

HONNE – “Coastal Love”

Off the forthcoming "Coastal Love" EP...

London duo HONNE (the romaji for 本音, meaning true feelings) recently shared “Coastal Love”, the first track off a newly announced Coastal Love EP. I’ve been paying close attention to HONNE since they first posted music on SoundCloud around 8 months ago. Since then they’ve consistently been putting out fantastic tracks, each of them receiving hundreds of thousands

Meadowlark – “Fly”

I’ve had this track bookmarked for a while (to share), but every time I start listening to it I find myself on a music-spree (and never get around to sharing it). With a track like this, no matter what mood you might have had before, you’ll be in a music mood after listening. Fly is

RAINES – “Ghosts”

Debut track from UK artist RAINES

Debut tracks show a lot about an artist. It’s essentially a first impression, giving the listener a “preview” of what you can expect with later releases. It’s not uncommon for a debut to be a bit lackluster, even for artists who end up doing extremely well. On the other hand, it isn’t every day you

AURORA – “Runaway”

Yet another Scandinavian artist has come out with something amazing. Not sure what’s going on in the Scandinavian countries, but it seems like many of my favorite artists and bands hail from there. Olafur Arnalds, Satellite Stories, and now Aurora. About a week ago Aurora Aksnes (a.k.a. Aurora), a Norwegian 18 year old, released a

Yung Lean & Thaiboy Digital – “Diamonds”

Yung Lean just dropped a video with Thaiboy Digital for the track “Diamonds”, and it’s actually nice. In a serious way. Like it’s actually good. Really good, if anything. If you follow Yung Lean, you should know about his claims to move away from the “internet star” he rose as and his steps towards becoming

Patrick Watson Announces New Album: “Love Songs For Robots”

Patrick Watson, an indie-folk singer/band from Montreal, has been a long-time favorite of mine. He’s got one of those voices that you can’t help but completely get lost in, comparable to artists like Bon Iver and James Vincent McMorrow. His latest record, “Adventures in Your Own Backyard” was released mid-2012, and was absolutely perfect. I was very

Alt-J Release Official Video for “Pusher”

Ever since alt-J released their most recent album, “This Is All Yours”, they’ve become a new kind of favorite for me. It’s almost inexplicable. Maybe I’m just bad with words. Regardless, their enchanting, unique sounds tend to stray from the “mainstream” (I hate to put it like that, but it is true) in terms of

Gengahr – “She’s A Witch”

Gengahr – “She’s A Witch” A few weeks ago, Gengahr (Transgressive Records) shared their new track “She’s A Witch”, which is currently available for pre-order on the “She’s A Witch” four-track EP. These indie rockers from London have a consistent pseudo-pop style that always keeps me hungry for more, and She’s A Witch is no

Cosmo Sheldrake – “Tardigrade Song” When it comes to the nonsensical, there are few as interesting as Cosmo Sheldrake. A clear lover of oddities and peculiarities, Cosmo Sheldrake looks towards music as a medium for his interests, doing an exceptionally well job, with tracks like “The Moss” and “Rich” featuring Andrea Vargas collecting over half

Douglas Dare – “Caroline”

Douglas Dare – “Caroline” Around September of 2014, London-based singer/songwriter Douglas Dare released the “Caroline/If Only” EP with Erased Tapes (Olafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Rival Consoles, among others).  I only came across the track recently, but I’ve been absolutely taken aback in more ways than one. “Caroline has always been a precious track for Douglas, one

Mssingno – “XE3” (Wheathin Turn)

Mssingno – “XE3” (Wheathin Turn) Chicago’s Ethan Snoreck, a.k.a Wheathin, has come out of seemingly nowhere with this massive remix of Mssingno’s original track “XE3”. His style is impeccable, and as a fourth release this is a very promising start for the 15 year old who completely dominates this track with massive synths, taking influence from the

ELEL – “40 Watt” (Carousel Remix)

Carousel is unstoppable. Consistently great music, all while connecting the indie and electronic music scenes. (Not to forget Day Wave, the indie-rock project of Jackson Phillips.)
