Gateway Drugs - Dare Tonight

chris on February 25 2015

Wow, there must be some sort of musical psychic force swirling throughout the universe. For some reason I thought, what happened to that band Gateway Drugs? AND BOOM! I checked their soundcloud and here is a 2 day old brand new album, chock full of banging hits.

Gosh Pith - Waves

chris on February 25 2015

I bet these guys catch some serious shit for their name. For God's sake, it sounds like you have a speech impediment when you say it out loud. You know what guys, rise above. At least you don't have an animal combo name like the rest of the jokers out there. So up yours Panda Horse. As far as the music goes, it has a huge amount of promise. It's like The Weeknd, but whiter. And damn, there are some seriously good guitar riffs throughout their collection of tracks.

Dinosaur Jr. - Goin Home

chris on February 24 2015

There is this miracle that occurs in music in which a song can simultaneously make you feel sad and wonderful at the same time, miraculously crossing your brain synapses. In my opinion a couple of the masters of this are Dinosaur Jr., and of course, Built to Spill.

Redinho x Touch Sensitive - Playing with Fire

chris on February 19 2015

Humanity is just a micron on a spec of shit hurtling through infinite darkness, so next time you go to work think of that. That will put that status report that you owe your boss by the end of the week in perspective. Life's a bitch, then you die. So enjoy yourself a little bit.

Tomas Barfod - November Skies (Jerome LOL Remix)

alex on February 18 2015

Caught this on which was formerly known as Hipster Runoff. It's still not totally clear if this guy is sane but I do enjoy some of the music he leads to me so he can't be that bad of a guy. You're okay with me Carles.

The Juan Maclean - Running Back

chris on February 11 2015

Oh yeah, how could I forget about this stone cold motherfucking groove. This is cooler than the otherside of the pillow. If this song was a highschooler, you'd never get invited to her party's when her mom went out of town and her step-dad Larry let her do whatever she wanted. As if!

Elvis Depressedly - Weird Honey

alex on February 10 2015

Sometimes a song, or in this case a whole album, just says we like to do drugs -- and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. Elvis Depressedly, no one is judging you here (that's probably a lie, more so an untruth).

Drug Cabin - Stoner

chris on February 09 2015

Man, this sound is such a time machine for me. It flashes me right back to when I first moved to Brooklyn in 2006, living in squalor and surviving off rice and beans and Ballantine 40s. No AC during the day and sneaking into live shows at night without a care in the world.

The Long Winters - The Commander Thinks Aloud

Alex on February 04 2015

Believe it or not but our current playlist excludes all the songs from our first version of Left as Rain -- about 550 song. Yesterday I was reminded of an old friend of a band, The Long Winters, whom had an all star of a track (Fire Island, AK) on our first iteration of the site. Now that we're reacquainted with The Long Winters do yourself a favor and listen to their Song Exploder regarding this track.
