    St. Paul and the Broken Bones – Flow with It (You Got Me Feeling Like)

    Yesterday, Paul Janeway and his band of Broken Bones released their second album, of which the title couldn’t be more accurate. “Sea of Noise,” opens through a spacey fog with a Justin Vernon feel with “Crumbling Light Posts, Pt. 1, but then with a low-key catchy guitar riff they...

    Noname – Shadow Man

    Fatimah Warner’s first mixtape, “Telefone,” dropped last month and everything from the album artwork to her playfully serious rhymes presents us with a powerful new female presence in the evolution of rap. The production is clean. The beats are tight and diverse, ranging from spacey to bouncy surrounding extremely...

    Milk & Bone – Natalie

    Milk and Bone are a Montreal-based band that hasn’t quite surfaced in pop culture yet. The group is made up of two first nation women named Laurence Lafond-Beaulne and Camille Poliquin who have crisp, angelic voices. They write and produce all of their own music including their 2015 debut,...

At first the lyrics come across as creating a somewhat typical...

Sylvan Esso’s newest track, “Radio,” begins like a synth-filled dance version of The Who’s mega-anthem “Baba O’Riley.” But instead of bringing light to a younger generation’s counterculture, Sylvan Esso sing in irony of the materialist consumer culture surrounding mainstream...

    Bon Iver – 33 “GOD”

    Yet another prized Bon Iver track has hit the mainstream! Well, maybe not the mainstream yet…but give it time. Within the last couple of weeks, ever since musical visionary, Justin Vernon, announced that Bon Iver would be playing a new album (the first in five years) live at his...

    III. Follow – Owen Thiele x Zack Sekoff

    Looking back towards last year, these two young emerging artists presented us with a killer debut EP that easily melts into any atmosphere. Owen Thiele’s incredibly smooth, sexy and soulful vocals layered over spacey synths and a low-key beat anyone can groove to, provides one of the most reassuringly...
