Vapour Trail Disintegrated 2015

British band Ride formed in 1988 and is the progenitor of shoegaze music. One year later, The Cure released one of their most influential and beloved albums, the introspective and beautifully gloomy “Disintegration.”
The latter had a big influence on the Oxford quintet and the feeling was mutual – The Cure singer Robert Smith was an outspoken fan of Ride as they gained stride in …

What a treat to wake up to a brand new track from Mr Little Jeans!
Yesterday, I heard that the LA-based artist had to cancel her upcoming show at Club Bahia due to a foot injury that needed surgery, so a preview of her forthcoming EP is certainly much needed good news!

Soo…this has been an intense week with a lot of blood, tears, needles, scalpels …

A studio version of the cover was included on a benefit compilation for the HIV/AIDS awareness organization Red Hot.
In the liner notes, Gonzales said the track is …

Vox: Artist You Should Know

Posted July 30, 2015 by | 2 Comments | 1,642 views]

Sarah Winters, aka Vōx, cold tweeted a SoundCloud link at me one day in late December, with a very bold: “Hey, I think you will like my music.”
It was her latest song (at the time) “Better” and something about her profile picture –where she is laying on the grass, enveloped in a stunning red robe — compelled me to listen.

The vocals-driven, stripped-down composition features a very …

Today, these Chilean, musica indie pioneers, and one of my favorite bands, release their third album, Chicos de la Luz.
It’s been about 3 years since I’ve heard anything new from these guys, and I was scared when I heard their lead singer, Andres, had a side project he’d been working on… but then the announcement came to my inbox about this new album …

It’s hard to describe authenticity. It’s one of those ‘you know it when it comes around’ things.
From his first release, Signs and Signifiers, Oklahoma native JD McPherson always seemed to have it. It’s as if he emerged from a late ’50s time capsule, but with an sonic quality that allows us to appreciate every nuance of his thoroughly seasoned band as well.
I’ve never seen …

Lolawolf – everyfuckinday EP
Lolawolf is back!
After a stellar 2014 marked with the release of an EP and a heavily slept on full length, entitled Calm Down, the Brooklyn based trio led by Zoe Kravitz (that’s right – Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet’s kid) just put out a free five track EP called everyfuckinday.
On the whole, the EP is a bit edgier than the pop/R&B …
