Beacon – “Feeling’s Gone”

No Comments 10 September 2012

The nearly un-Google-able first caught my eye when they opened up for at the Social in Orlando.  My buddy and I were intrigued by the Brooklyn duo’s cool mixture of R&B sounds, moody synths, and heavy bass.  They are readying they’re second EP entitled For Now due out October 2nd on Ghostly International.  From the first single “Feeling’s Gone” it appears they have done nothing but improve on their sound since No Body EP.  Thomas Mullarney vocals ride along the swelling beat as it drops out only to come back full force into a somewhat of a brooding dance song.  Glad to hear more from these guys.  Check out more from them HERE.

You gotta love prolific artists.  Only 5 months and 1 day after his debut full length All of Us, Together, will release his followup The Inner Mansions.  Maybe the intention was to strike while the iron’s hot because from the sound of “New Life” there’s no sophomore slump here.  The Inner Mansions is due out November 6th on Lefse Records.

StB Does Coachella 2012

No Comments 11 April 2012

Let the stokedness begin.  T-minus nothing and I’ll be basking in the desert sun drinking in the sounds by the likes of Bon Iver, Radiohead, , At the Drive-In, Wild Beasts, etc.  Unfortunately there are quite a few serious dilemmas like Miike Snow/SBTRKT/Godspeed You! Black Emperor or /Explosions in the Sky.  No matter, decisions will be made and no regrets will be had.  Check out the link below for a Spotify playlist to get you amped if you’re going, or jealous if you’re not.  Enjoy!

mewithoutyou – “February, 1878″

No Comments 09 April 2012

One of my all time favorites are creeping back into relevance with their first album since 2009.   will be releasing Ten Stories via their own label Pine Street Music Collection on May 15th.  ”February, 1878″, not to be confused with “January, 1979“, is the opener and finds that the guys haven’t lost their touch.  Definitely one of the only bands that can mix so many styles into one song without losing impact or coming off pretentious.  Still one of my favorite bands since they blew my mind at a Norma Jean show almost a decade ago.
