Sunday Funday! And today we get to listen to a new track from Jack Johnson. “I Got You” is the first track from his upcoming album, From Here To Now To You due out September 17. Buy the single and pre order the album from iTunes.
Happy Monday! Here’s a tune for you to crank up and make today a great day! A new one from one of my favorite artists, Michael Franti – “I’m Alive (Life Sounds Like).” This is the first single off his upcoming eight album with Spearhead and tomorrow you can head over to iTunes or Amazon and download it. Until then, enjoy it here!
They’re baaaaaack! Empire of the Sun just dropped the first single off their upcoming album Ice On The Dune! Give a listen! New album comes out in June.
Two words: Wild Cub
Who? The dynamic duo of Keegan DeWitt and Jeremy Bullock
What? A poppy sound you’re gonna love. Filled with heavy synths and bright guitars; and two voices that complement each other flawlessly, you’ll be grooving from the start to Wild Cub.
Why you should listen? In August the duo dropped their debut LP, Youth. Plus if you want a little flashback to the ‘80s blended with today, you’ll really dig this.
A reason you’ll be excited? PASTE, SPIN, MTV, Filter Magazine, IFC, Consequence of Sound and more are all on the bandwagon of the Nashville duo and appearances at festivals like SXSW and Bonnaroo doesn’t suck either.
Why I’m excited: Listen to the songs “Thunder Clatter” and “Colour” and you’ll be hooked.
If you like: MNDR, White Arrows, Kopecky Family Band, Youth Lagoon.
Final thoughts: I’m kicking myself again for discovering another band post Bonnaroo. Along with Jukebox The Ghost, these are the two bands I really wish I would have seen. I’ve been listening to Youth since it dropped and have been absolutely hooked.

Ch-ch-ch-check it out, new music from Deer Tick. “Miss K” is the first single from the band’s upcoming album, Divine Providence, due out October 25.
One of the best parts of a music festival is discovering new music and at Bonnaroo I did just that. On the first night of the festival I found myself bouncing around and after catching the end of The Walkmen’s set and waiting for Deerhunter to go on, I stumbled upon Childish Gambino and within minutes was blown away. I had absolutely zero notion of who he was or what kind of music I was preparing myself for but left craving more and while hip-hop is his game, I loved the fact that he has a kick ass band backing him. Oh yeah, Childish Gambino is the alter ego of comedian Donald Glover; a tiny bit of information you should know .
I may be late to this party as he’s be rapping for some years now but I’ll take a new discovery any day.
