"I Haven't Been Doing So Well" by Frank Turner

A new Frank Turner album called FTHC is coming in early 2022!  The first single, I Haven't Been Doing So Well, is an ode to mental health which we're sure has surged and affected so many throughout the pandemic.  Turner is currently on the road - check out The Never Ending Tour of Everywhere 2022!

"Pulp" by Winnetka Bowling League

Matthew Koma (Bair) is a singer, songwriter, DJ and producer who has worked with a ton of artists worldwide, but do you know about his group Winnetka Bowling League?  The League only has a couple of EP's in their catalog, but they're working toward another one and we are digging the new single, Pulp.  Fun fact:  Koma is married to Hillary Duff, but this post is all about the music, check it out!

"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...

"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! 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...

"All Weekend" by The Vaughns

Announcing 1 of 2 female-led bands that will be playing our 13th Annual Coquina Jam - The Vaughns!  Check out their track, All Weekend from their 2021 release called, "rom-coms + take-out".  Interestingly enough, the lyrics were written on tour during 2020 to portray the feeling of needing some time at home to breathe, but were later adjusted with regard to no longer wanting to be stuck at home during quarantine.  Their wish has come true and on July 25th we're really looking forward to hearing The Vaughns live, outside and on the beach at our event (Noon - 1pm set)! Read More...

"We Are Between" by Modest Mouse

It's been a minute since Modest Mouse blessed us with a new album.  The Golden Casket has arrived, and it seems to be worth the wait!  Frontman Isaac Brock has done it again, and maybe having 2 kids in recent years has injected just a little bit more optimism into the music?  Check out the instant classic We Are Between! 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...

"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...

"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...

"Murder at the Bingo Hall" by Amigo The Devil

What do you get when you mix a banjo x hardcore...Amigo The Devil!  Austin-based Danny Kiranos has really created a unique sound based on his love of hard rock and metal melded with his folk approach.  I mean, we've heard about "acoustic pits" at some of his shows!  Check out this devilish tale about murder in the most unsuspecting of places!    Read More...

"Officer of Love" by Caamp

CAAMP recently dropped Square One, a Tom Petty cover, and that reminded us that we had missed their prior single release.  Officer of Love was an easy pick for our Music Monday playlist!  These guys will be playing Bonnaroo this September - we're so stoked that live music will be making its way back!      Read More...

"Egocentric" by Death By Unga Bunga

Sometimes you come across a band that just exudes FUN - enter Death By Unga Bunga.  Admittedly, we really wish that we discovered this Norwegian group earlier, but at least now we can dig through all six of their albums!  Their latest, Heavy Male Insecurity, is simply packed with head nodders.  Check out Egocentric for starters...!         Read More...

"Space Girl" by Frances Forever

Space Girl by Frances Forever has gained a ton of momentum lately.  In 2019, the song launched via NPR's Tiny Desk Concert.  There is also another version of it out there featuring Chole Moriondo.  Whether it is old or new to you, the official video just dropped and we wanted to share the love! Read More...

"Threat Level Midnight" by The Network

The Network just performed Threat Level Midnight on The Tonight Show with their first new album out in 17 years!  Is The Network really just a secret side project of Green Day?  We don't know, and we're sick of reading conflicting opinions, but we do love the music as well as the song title tribute to The Office!  Uncertainty is a fit for these times that we're living in, so just turn up the volume and let it go!    Read More...

"All My Favorite Songs" by Weezer

With Hella Mega Tour postponed a year and the Van Weezer album on hold, Rivers Cuomo just surprised us with OK Human.  These 12 tracks are a big change of pace from the stadium rock, but they are just as awesome (and backed by a 38-piece orchestra)!  Check out All My Favorite Songs and dive into this pandemic appropriate release by Weezer.   Read More...

"The Bandit" by Kings of Leon

This March Kings of Leon will release their 8th studio album entitled When You See Yourself.  What is really cool about this band is that it is a family affair as brothers Caleb, Nathan & Jared are joined by their cousin Matthew.  The band even chose their name after their grandfather Leon.  We'll be looking forward to the entire album, but for now enjoy The Bandit!
