"running in place (alternate take)" by MisterWives

MisterWives released an awesome, alternate version of running in place from their album SUPERBLOOM.  The original piano piece, which is great in its own right, gets sped up and celebrates the 1-year anniversary of the 2020 album release.  If you missed this NYC-based band, then definitely go back and give them a listen, or catch them on tour this Fall!

"Piece Of Me" by The Bamboos

The Bamboos dropped their tenth studio album this past May, but six new songs are on the way!  Piece Of Me is one of those songs that will be included on an expanded, deluxe version of the Hard Up album.  We'll take all the Aussie funk that we can get! Read More...

"Wild Blue" by John Mayer

John Mayer's Sob Rock is a comfortable escape from the tumultuous times that we are living in.  With an obvious homage to the 80's (check out the cover and marketing campaign), you'll also find a stellar cast of producers and musicians if you dig through the liner notes.  Whether you love Mayer's touring with Dead & Company, or hate his clashes with the media, his talent is certainly on another level.  Enjoy Wild Blue!

"Survivor" by Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats

Nathaniel Rateliff has rounded up the Night Sweats for their third album coming this November!  After a solo release in 2020, get ready for another collaboration from these (8) talented humans.  The first single is powerful, and you're likely going to hear it for a long time (i.e. S.O.B.)...enjoy Survivor!

"Romeo" by Jungle feat. Bas

If you were waiting for three albums until Jungle finally had a feature, then your wait is over!  You know that J and T are going to bring the funky beat, and on Romeo Bas serves up some perfect, complimentary lyrics.  A storied encounter at Greatest Day Ever Festival led to a beautiful piece of Jungle's Loving In Stereo which is out now, check it out!    Read More...

"That Life" by Unknown Mortal Orchestra

After dropping the single Weekend Run earlier this Summer, Unknown Mortal Orchestra has followed it up with another one entitled That Life.  The song, inspired by a painting with "a mixture of crazy stuff going on, representing heaven, earth, and hell", throws a lot of good, band and in between at you, but hey, that's life!  Hopefully, we are driving toward a new album from the New Zealand-based outfit as it has been a few years since their last full-length release. Read More...

"Marigold" by Jelani Areyah

We came across the rising indie artist Jelani Areyah via Sirius XMU Sessions.  That led us to his new and first full-length album I've Got Some Living To Do.  The SoCal native is definitely drawing his own line and when listening through the album, he's asking all of us to do the same.  Check out the sensual, soulful Marigold! Read More...

"Dulceria" by AFI

A Fire Inside dropped their 11th studio album, Bodies, earlier this Summer.  We had featured them back in January (Escape From Los Angeles), but are happy to chalk them up again in the same year, especially since Billy Corgan co-wrote Dulceria!  Enjoy! Read More...

"Until the Night Is Gone" by Sleepwalkers

A couple of albums, led by a couple of brothers (Austin & Michael York), that's the Sleepwalkers.  Now there is even a couple of versions of their new single Until the Night Is Gone as they just released a remix featuring Corfu, but here's the original.  Enjoy it, and if you're like us, you're anxious to hear a couple more!   Read More...

"Better Cause of You" by SUO

Announcing the second of two female-led bands that will be playing our 13th Annual Coquina Jam, our headliner, SUO!  We featured Saara back in 2020 when she dropped Dancing Spots and Dungeons, and now she is back with a new single, Better Cause of You.  Also, as if we planned it, she was recently featured by Ladygunn's Stories From Rockaway Beach Surf And Skate!  Check out the single and the article to see why Saara Untracht-Oakner is a perfect fit for this year's Jam (1-3pm set)!   Read More...

"The Numbers" by Rise Against

If you're not fired up after listening to Rise Against, then you're not listening.  Their 9th studio album, Nowhere Generation, is full of questions about and suggestions for our current state of affairs.  Every generation has to take action to make the world a better place for our future leaders, wouldn't you agree? Read More...

"Potions" by Day Wave

Back during the pandemic, Jackson Phillips created his Crush EP right out of his home using Lo-fi equipment.  You wouldn't know (or care) how he made the songs though, because the end product showcases his talents as a multi-instrumentalist and producer.  Check out Potions, we bet you'll agree... Read More...

"Ready for Tomorrow" by Babe Rainbow

The chill beach vibes from Aussie psych rockers Babe Rainbow continue on their 4th album, Changing Colours.  In our book, a bunch of avid surfers who are mildly obsessed with everything "throwback" makes for a great recipe.  Are you Ready for Tomorrow? Read More...

"Clay Pigeon" by Binki

Binki doesn't have a ton of music out, but we're pretty sure that will change real soon!  After a handful of singles over the past few years, the 4-song EP Motor Function will arrive later this Summer.  For now, we get a sneak listen into one of the songs, Clay Pigeon...enjoy! Read More...

"Take It Back" by Dinosaur Jr.

Dinosaur Jr.'s Sweep It Into Space continues the band's run of influential music over the past four decades.  Kurt Vile jumped in to co-produce this album.  The trio, who broke up back in 1997, but reunited 10 years later, have now released five albums since.  Take It Back may stray a bit from their classic formula, but we're all for the catchy chorus! Read More...

"Shine Your Light" by The Nude Party

A Catskills retreat during the pandemic has given us another album from The Nude Party!  Midnight Manor dropped last Fall, so we're sure plenty of you have heard it, but we're thinking that these guys will get back out on the road soon to properly spread these vibes in true (live) TNP style.  Check out (or have another listen to) their first single from their sophomore effort, Shine Your Light...   Read More...

"Shy Away" by Twenty One Pilots

Twenty One Pilots are just a couple of weeks away from releasing their 6th album, Scaled and Icy.  Tyler Joseph & Josh Dun have been working on this one for 2+ years, so we'll see if it can match the success that their priors have achieved.  Check out the single Shy Away which gives us good reason to believe that more Grammy-level music is on the way. Read More...

"Keel Timing" by Manchester Orchestra

Atlanta's Manchester Orchestra have released their 6th album The Million Masks of God.  We love the bold energy of Keel Timing.  The album provides some fast-paced tracks as well as some slower ones, all loosely connecting over the issues that we face as we grow older.  Check it out!     Read More...

"Summer Sun" by Matt Berry

The multi-talented Matt Berry has blessed us with a new track, Summer Sun!  If you're not familiar with this this English actor/comedian/musician/writer, then just look up his vast body of work.  We're excited for the rest of the The Blue Elephant album, and this song is perfect as we prepare to slide into Summer!   Read More...

"Heat Above" by Greta Van Fleet

Greta Van Fleet bring some massive soundscapes to the table on their new album The Battle at Garden's Gate.  The pandemic pushed them around a bit from recording in several spots throughout LA to eventually settling in the more fitting Nashville.  Veteran producer Greg Kurstin and the band's intent to make a record that was fit to be the score of a fantastic film are heard loud and clear, especially on Heat Above, the opening track of the album.  Enjoy!   Read More...
