"Sister Rosetta" by Frank Turner

Sister Rosetta is just one of the songs off of Frank Turner's new album which celebrates women.  In this case, Turner is referring to Sister Rosetta Tharpe, the often forgotten American singer from the 30's who helped pave the way for later Rock & Rollers like Elvis and Johnny Cash.  No Man's Land, due out in mid August, features 13 tracks that focus on female heroism.   Read More...

"Take You out Tonight" by STS & Khari Mateen

STS (Sugar Tongue Slim) & Khari Mateen might not be household names in your world, but they've been behind some really great music for quite some time now.  Spring Summer Collection 19 is their second release in the past two years offering just an abundance of style - simply put, they are two distinctly different artists that unite to give us an amazing collaboration.  Khari's CA roots and Slim's ATL upbringing meshed when they both moved to Philly.  Do some digging through whichever music platform you live on, you'll see that these two super talents are bound for more success...

"Pick Your Poison" by Black Pistol Fire

Canadian rock duo Black Pistol Fire has a new single out and is building on 2018 which many have pinpointed as their breakout year.  That said, let's give Kevin McKeown and Eric Owen a little more credit, playing together since high school and 5 albums deep since 2011.  They've relocated from Toronto to Austin and recorded this one in Nashville...and they're clearly blowing off some steam!  Check them out on tour as they've received several accolades for their live stage show!   Read More...

"Alligator" by Of Monsters and Men

In a couple of weeks Of Monsters and Men will drop their third album, Fever Dream.  The new single, Alligator, is certainly anthemic despite shedding the folk skin that its ancestors like Little Talks and Dirty Paws beamed onto so many playlists with.  For a band whose origins began from entering an annual music competition in Iceland, its uplifting to see them grow and bring so much energy to a worldwide stage. Read More...

"Go" by The Black Keys

The real magic happens when Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney are together as The Black Keys!  They're back with their first full length in five years, twelve tracks of straight rock hence the album title which alludes to the first execution in Tennessee in 16 years (which occurred during recording).  Check out Go! Read More...

"Strands Align" by Night Moves

This week we're featuring Minneapolis band Night Moves!  They just dropped their 3rd album, Can You Really Find Me, which is getting great reviews and perhaps too many comparisons to greats from the 70's era.  We only say that because we love a solid, underrated band and would advocate to let them Draw Their Own Line!  Enjoy their fun video for Strands Align! Read More...

"Fault Is Me" by Sleepwalkers

This week we're featuring Sleepwalkers, the Richmond (VA) shot callers who are about to release Ages, their second full-length!  These dudes are DYOL official, and we can't help, but share part of their Facebook bio...a group of outlaws who rose from the blue collar depths of a glorified suburban landscape.  Check out Fault Is Me and catch them on tour all throughout the Midwest and East Coast this Summer!

Shake Up The Shadows by Hot Water Music June 21-22 Philadelphia, PA - Underground ArtsJune... Read More...

"Running Scared (Desert Song)" by The Strumbellas

The Strumbellas released their 4th album, Rattlesnake, last month.  These guys are no rookies, with International touring and huge festivals like Lollapalooza and Bonaroo under their belt.  Call it Alt Country or Pastoral Pop, we just love the positive, fun, make-you-wanna-dance vibes here.  Check 'em out all over the US during May & June as they continue to tour with the Canadian flag waving proudly behind them.

"Day In, Day Out" by JR JR

If you're a fan of JR JR, then what could be better news then the imminent release of a double album!?  What's more is that Invocations / Conversations will be the first release on their own, newly formed label Love is EZ Records.  It's been a wild few years for the Detroit duo (Josh Epstein & Daniel Zott), but luckily for their fans the craziness and life experiences have been turned into a collection of fun pop songs.  Check out Day In, Day Out which according to Epstein is "a homage to Leonard Cohen and Prince passing. It's about the notion that... Read More...

"Inside Out" by Klassy

Once in a while a new emcee really connects the dots.  Klassy's debut album Dirty Cortez sports soulful beats and sharp lyricism attacking tough subjects that plague our daily newswires.  The 7 song EP is a smooth listen through that digs much deeper then the head-nodding beats.  The Dirty Hernan interlude smack in the middle speaks on Nike's classic track sneaker and how it ties history to LA's current issues.  Ultimately though, Klassy breathes positivity and calls for change for the better...for her, for her kids and for all of us.     Read More...

"The Last Time That She Talked To Me" by The Hold Steady

The last time that he talked to us was in 2016 when Craig Finn played our HopSauce Festival!  Craig's band, The Hold Steady, has released a number of singles over the past year or so, the most recent being The Last Time That She Talked To Me.  They have a few great shows in the Northeast this May.  We have something else in common with the band too as they have been wired and well connected since 2003!   Read More...

"Favorite Everything" by The Bouncing Souls

This week's Music Monday is all about New Jersey as we feature the latest release from The Bouncing Souls!  We grew up listening to this band and we'd be lying if we said they weren't a heavy influence on our brand's launch way back in 2003.  With Favorite Everything, part of their 6-song EP Crucial Moments which was released just last Friday, they continue to hit us with vibes that help narrate our shared love of the Garden State and beyond.  The EP comes with a book that celebrates their 30th Anniversary and they've embarked on a pretty massive tour!...

"The Sneeze" by Little Comets

We're big fans of Little Comets so naturally we're excited to share their new single, The Sneeze!  It's been a minute since we've heard from the British trio and we're hoping this release is evidence of their 5th album?!  You're not going to find a ton of info on this band, but the comparisons to Vampire Weekend our valid, and you never know where they might pop up and play...
