"Hourglass" by Mipso

Mipso is a traditional string quartet that has greatly expanded their sound on their 5th, self-titled release.  Since touring has been off the table, they've used their creativity to construct a handful of videos.  The pandemic has posed plenty of questions about time, rethinking how we spend it and how we use it to accomplish things.  Hourglass touches on that very topic with a great, upbeat tempo and Mipso's classic harmony.

"survivin'" by Bastille

Survivin'...that's what most of us are focused on right now!  This year has thrown new and devastatingly tough hurdles at many, so let's make sure to take care of each other.  Bastille has dropped another great single, one that not only uplifts, but also touches on the important topics of anxiety and mental health.  Enjoy!

"Dan n' Shaniqua" by Matt Mays

Matt Mays just dropped Dog City, an entire album written from the perspective of a rescue dog!  What a cool concept, and the album also came together during isolation via Mays' own home studio as well as contributions from other band mates.  Check out the first single Dan n' Shaniqua!     Read More...

"Pelota" by Khruangbin

The Houston-based trio Khruangbin released Mordechai earlier this Summer.  The Spanish-sung Pelota has a great vibe and the accompanying animated video gives you a little insight on what the song is about.  As they say on the hook, Right Now I Can Be the Ball...enjoy!   Read More...

"Lifeguard" by Nahko And Medicine for the People

Uplifting music, that is what Nahko And Medicine for the People bring to the table!  The new album, Take Your Power Back, dropped in May, but the impact of the 18 worldly tracks will live on forever.  On Lifeguard, Nahko Bear asks the important question that all of us should answer ~ How much do we really need?   Read More...

"Cars In Space" by Rolling Blackouts C.F.

Today we're featuring a new single by Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever!  The guitar-driven band has been on the move since releasing their debut full-length in 2018, but lucky for us has found some time to make new music as well.  Enjoy Cars In Space, another great tune from the Land Down Under!    Read More...

"Lost in Yesterday" by Tame Impala

Tame Impala will release The Slow Rush this month, their 4th studio album and first since Currents in 2015.  There's no arguing the talent of Kevin Parker who writes, records, performs, produces and mixes all Tame Impala material on his own.  Enjoy this trip back to the 70's with Lost in Yesterday!

"Already There" by Bombargo

This week we're featuring a 7-man band from Saskatchewan, Canada by the name of Bombargo!  Maybe you heard of these guys when Taylor Swift added their song Mr. No Good to her Spotify playlist, but we've stumbled upon them more organically in search of sounds for our next HopSauce Festival (slated for 5/30/20).  The guys haven't dropped a full length album since 2017, but have released a bunch of singles including their most recent Already There - enjoy!     Read More...

"Don't Give Up" by Lee Fields & the Expressions

We had the pleasure of having Lee Fields headline our HopSauce Festival back in 2017.  Little JB stays busy as he released a new album, It Rains Love, earlier this year and just last week a new song, Don't Give Up.  It's amazing that Lee is still putting music out today after recording his first single in 1969!  We'll take all of the soul that we can get!

"You're Different" by The Shelters

This week we're traveling cross country to bring you some SoCal vibes via The Shelters!  They released their Sophmore effort back in September, Jupiter Sidecar, and although it has a super talented roster from a production/mixing/engineering standpoint, it should be noted that the legendary Tom Petty had produced their debut album (The Shelters; 2016).  After Petty's tragic passing (October 2, 2017), the band strived to get back into the studio and grow.  Check out You're Different! Read More...

"Shout" by The Vaughns

This week we're featuring Jersey natives The Vaughns!  We've heard reverberations of this 4-piece and wanted to travel back to this past Spring to feature their debut release, FOMO.  Check out the video for Shout and try to catch them on the tail end of their Fall tour if they happen to be cruising through your hood! Read More...

"Everyone Hides" by Wilco

We're sure that fans of Chicago's Wilco were pleased to see an end to the group's performing hiatus as well as the release of their 11th studio album Ode to Joy!  Like so many bands, the members have changed over the years, but the current 6-piece has been together since the early/mid 2000's.  On the new album, they continue their long journey of twisting and turning through multiple genres.  Check out the upbeat video for Everyone Hides! Read More...

"America (You're Freaking Me Out)" by The Menzingers

There is no doubt that The Menzingers ring in as one of Jetty's favorite bands.  There is a lot of talk about hitting their shows when we're vibing in the treehouse at HQ.  They recently dropped their 6th studio album, Hello Exile, and that unchanged lineup since their inception does not disappoint!  Check out the video for America (You're Freaking Me Out)!      Read More...

"Peach Fuzz" by CAAMP

CAAMP is a folk trio from Columbus, OH, and they're definitely on the come up!  About a year ago someone in our HQ brought the band up, we made note, then in the midst of a crazy busy Summer we missed their second full-length, By and By.  We're glad that we circled back because, as their website boasts, they make beautiful noise.  These guys aren't by any means unknown as they've played a bunch of top-tier festivals and toured all over, but we bet there are plenty of people who are yet to check them out (and they need to)!...

"Good Luck" by Broken Bells

Broken Bells just released Good Luck, but odds are we'll probably have to wait a while for their third full-length.  The proven success of James Mercer (The Shins) collaborating with Brian Burton (Danger Mouse) has us all anxious to hear more, but as they've stated in recent interviews, their both constantly writing and recording on multiple projects.  They have confirmed that they are working on that third album... Read More...

"Waste My Time" by Work In Progress

Earlier this Summer, Jersey natives Work In Progress dropped their first two singles, Dream Eater & Waste My Time.  While the former features one of our area's top up-and-coming celebs (Gaten Matarazzo; Stranger Things), the latter sports some stunning vocals by his sister Sabrina.  You may have caught the band at last weekend's See.Hear.Now festival in Asbury Park, and although the band has some uncertain plans (they postponed a few shows this Summer due to scheduling conflicts), we're hoping to get them to one of our event's in the near future.  In the meantime, we know their drawing their own...

"Waste No Time" by Chali 2na & Krafty Kuts feat. Dynamite MC

This week we're featuring Waste No Time from the powerful collaboration of Chali 2na & Krafty Kuts!  The legendary rapper from Jurassic 5 & Ozomatli teamed up with Martin Reeves, who has achieved international fame as a DJ/Beatmaker, carries a strong 15 tracks on their new album.  The superhero-themed full-length is aptly titled and includes some strong featured artists just like Dynamite MC on this track - check it out! Read More...

"Fingernails" by Gin War

This week we're featuring Gin War, some fellow Jersey natives who dropped a new EP this July!  Check out the video for Fingernails off of Take Me With You and you might just have the opportunity to see these guys play a 2020 Jetty event as well?!   Read More...

"Pure Gold" by Half Alive

Half Alive's debut album Now, Not Yet was released this month and it's everything we thought it would be considering the heavy stream volume of their previous singles that dropped leading up to it.  The CA-based trio simply has a different sound, and the album is the culmination of 4+ years of writing and assembling the band.  It's Labor Day, so kick back and check out Pure Gold, but honestly, listen through the entire album as it's one of the best we've heard in some time!     Read More...

"7Am" by Calista Quinn

Last month we had LBI Region local Calista Quinn over to our HQ for the second installment of our Craft & Calling series.  After performing for a private crowd to kick off our 11th Annual Coquina Jam, Calista has released a brand new song and video!  Check out 7Am and see if you can spot our Single Fin Hoodie!
