"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.

"Material Boy" by Sir Sly

For the second consecutive week we have a band stepping somewhat outside of their comfort zone with a new release.  Sir Sly isn't really known for putting out slightly positive songs, but Material Boy certainly evokes some happy feelings for us listeners.  This one is sort of straight out of lead singer Landon Jacobs' diary, so enjoy the beautiful marriage of deep lyrics and that undeniable synth line.

"Trouble's Coming" by Royal Blood

From the sound of Royal Blood's latest single it seems that the pandemic-induced delay of their 3rd album will be well worth the wait.  You might think that you hear a full band strumming and knocking on a bunch of instruments, a nod to the talent of this duo who are Mike Kerr & Ben Thatcher!  Trouble's Coming is more likely to draw you to the dance floor compared to most of their past work, so we'll see if that direction is also a theme when the album makes its way to us next Spring.   Read More...

"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! Read More...

"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...

"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...

"Zen" by X Ambassadors, K. Flay & grandson

Some collaborations are over-hyped, but Zen is probably the best one we've heard out of quarantine!  X Ambassadors, K. Flay and grandson have united to perfectly articulate what is on most of our minds during this COVID-19 crisis!  We've said it before, but one of the positives to come from this debacle is a ton of excellent, new music - GIVE ME F*?&NG ZEN!

"ALIVE" by Hanni El Khatib

Hanni El Khatib has a pretty rad DYOL-centric story.  He grew up skating in San Francisco and seems to share a lot of the same influences that we do here at Jetty.  He was a creative director at HUF, but once the world got ears on his music he rerouted to building a catalog of great vibes.  That route included heavy touring and four albums which led to him being creatively spent.  After getting sober, surviving a heavy car accident and re-exploring his roots with some clear Hip Hop influence, he's released a new album FLIGHT! Read More...

"Hero" by Weezer

Weezer isn't short on anthems, but they decided to add another one to their certifiable list last week with Hero.  Despite the new album Van Weezer being moved back, the band has released two tracks as well as making an appearance on The Simpsons this past weekend.  We can all share in this one which pays homage to the essential workers - hang on until the end of the video which includes a written thank you from Rivers Cuomo.       Read More...

"The Joke Was on Me" by Ezra Bell

One of the many reasons that we were bummed to cancel HopSauce Festival this year - Ezra Bell coming all the way from Portland (OR) to headline!  Let's get back to being positive though, they released an album just last month so there are nine unique and equally awesome new tracks to vibe to.  Be sure to check out This Way To Oblivion! Read More...

"Karen" by Surfer Blood

Surfer Blood is a band that we have always followed since their classic debut Astro Coast back in 2010.  We enjoyed their Covers album last year, but are really excited for some brand new music.  We missed them by a day passing through DE last Summer at Dogfish Head, and we even considered them for our now (unfortunately) cancelled 7th Annual HopSauce Festival.  Check out Karen from Carefree Theatre dropping next month!   Read More...

"Deleter" by Grouplove

The historic social and economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic call for a little Grouplove!  In a time when we have to keep our distance from one another, and cannot attend our favorite shows with every musical tour in the world postponed, we can still listen and learn.  Healer is the 4th album from Grouplove, who always seem to bring positive vibes, even to negative topics and times! Read More...

"Mr. Al" by SUO

Saara Untract-Oakner has been making music and traveling the world for years, even stopping by some Jetty events along the way.  After a successful run with BOYTOY, she recently debuted a solo album that stands firm within her musical and creative pedigree.  It's no surprise that you can find her in plenty of Dancing Spots and Dungeons, currently across Europe while on tour.  We hope she and/or Mr. Al swing through again soon...     Read More...

"Different Light" by Best Coast

Surf-pop band Best Coast is back with their 4th album Always Tomorrow out this month.  They released a children's album in 2018 and served as the house band on Fox's What Just Happened??! With Fred Savage last year, but many of us wondered if they could recapture their early success.  We shouldn't have wondered as Bethany Cosentino shook the writer's block, got sober and coexists beautifully with the multi-talented Bobb Bruno on their new effort.  There's a video out for Everything Has Changed, but we're also feeling the upbeat lead track Different Light ~ enjoy!   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! Read More...

"Dance Of The Clairvoyants" by Pearl Jam

It was July of 2013 when we last featured Pearl Jam's Mind Your Manners, now they're back with 12 new tracks!  The legendary group will kick off a North American Tour this March which wraps up in April before they hit Europe during Summer.  So far Dance Of The Clairvoyants is the first single to be released from the upcoming Gigaton and by the sound of it we're on the edge of our seats anxious to hear the rest of the album! Read More...

"Paper Cup" by Real Estate feat. Amelia Meath

This week we're featuring Real Estate who have their fifth studio album forthcoming in February.  The similarities between how this group of five have drawn their own line as a band are plentiful with that of our brand story.  We're both from New Jersey, have five members, reconnected after college and have great stories about how we picked our names...but forget about us, go listen to Paper Cup, the first single from The Main Thing (due out Feb 28th)! Read More...

"Everything Else Has Gone Wrong" by Bombay Bicycle Club

After a three year hiatus Bombay Bicycle Club is back with their fifth studio album entitled Everything Else Has Gone Wrong.  After exploring some solo projects, session work and even one band member returning to school, the London 4-piece was ultimately circled back together to make new music.  Check out the title track ~ enjoy! Read More...

"Exoskeleton" by Dan Luke and the Raid

Dan Luke and the Raid's debut album, Out of the Blue, was released just months after the tragic death of guitarist Dylan T. Graves.  Graves and other band members do landscaping in the Bowling Green (KY) area when not on the road.  The shocking lawnmower accident left the band with a tough decision, but moving forward and loving their music is what Graves would have wanted.  The band does have some guidance as frontman Daniel Schultz is the younger brother of Bradley and Matt Schultz (Cage the Elephant).  Check out Exoskeleton which was filmed in Graves' hometown of Franklin (KY)...

"Christmas at My House" by The Dirty Nil

We're keeping it Canadian this week with one of our favorite new bands, The Dirty Nil!  We're all about traditional Holiday tunes, but how great is it when we can add a fresh track to the playlist?!  Whether you're traveling or hosting, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
