Haven’t posted a rap song in a while, heard this one and was immediately hooked. Kinda reminds me of Yung Lean.
I’ll start off by saying Stick Figure absolutely killed it. Fortunate Youth opened for the sold out show. they were awesome as well.Stick Figure had the crowd goin from start to finish. They opened with an Umphreys-esque jam – I was not expecting a heavier/rock sounding intro like they played, it was a nice surprise. Right from the start the show carried that same high energy momentum all the way thru. They brought that heavier jam into Burial Ground, solid intro. The rest of the show had a ton of energy, the crowd, Scott Woodruff and the rest of Stick Figure all felt it. They played primarily newer songs including Smiles on Faces, Coming Home, Fire on the Horizon, Mind Block, Breathe, Smokin Love and Weight of Sound (my favorite from the show). Overall it was a great show, Stick Figure blew my expectations out of the water. And a big thanks to Stick Figure management for getting me in the show!
These guys remind me of The Allah Las / The Growlers. Sort of lazy beach sounding rock. Free album on their bandcamp.
Soundcloud description : Groove-drones and jangle freakouts. 12 strings and 60s organs. Jiving rhythms and gazey fuzz-tones. The Grease Arrestor are the Sydney 5 piece dedicated to bringing you the very best of sounds you know and L.O.V.E.
Yeasayer is group I used to listen to a whole lot while in college, but over time I guess I grew apart from them a little. They’ve released three singles in the past couple months and it’s getting me back into them. They may be songs off a new album Amen and Goodbye, but they all have the old yeasayer feel. Weird timing, peculiar noises, and abstract lyrics all bring me back to the yeasayer phase I used to be in. they’re new album is set to come out on April fools day, April is looking like a good month for album releases for multiple bands. Gerson’s Whistle is by far my favorite of these three, looks like I’ll be playing this one a few more times today.
I’ve seen Lotus a few times, and their live act is incredible, but they haven’t quite gripped me fully as some other similar artists have. I can see this changing the more times I’m faced with the opportunity to see them as their talent is impossible to deny. The two newer songs they put out have impressed me thoroughly, and the route they went with Eats The Light with guest singer Gabe Otto makes me want to put on a few Talking Head’s songs immediately after. Impressive synth work and Mike Greenfield on drums of course keeping the dance going. Check out Eat The Light and Gilded Age.
To everyone that still checks out our blog, THANK you.
We’re all going to try posting some songs were into each week.
I’ve been spotify a lot recently so I will put songs in a weekly playlist, hopefully yall dig it.
This might be favorite at the moment though
I’ve spent the past few months in the Southwest, away from my home on the East Coast. I wasn’t presented with the opportunity to post often as I was left without wifi for the most part. My time out west was spent volunteering on a crew involved with restoration and trail work in an attempt to give back to the community of people who enjoy the natural landscape of the world. I met people out there who I bonded with immediately and learned lessons I might’ve otherwise never known, not only about myself but life in general. Lessons of respect for mother nature, lessons on the keys to happiness, lessons to better my life. Sometimes it takes some discomfort to realize what you’ve been missing out on all along.
