"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!

"Miracle Pill" by Goo Goo Dolls

The world renowned Goo Goo Dolls are releasing their twelfth album next month!  It's been a few years since Boxes, and we're excited to check out the rest of the album after hearing the title track Miracle Pill, enjoy! Read More...

"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...

"Western Stars" by Bruce Springsteen

We've touted many Jersey artists, but none carry a portfolio even close to that of The Boss!  Bruce just dropped Western Stars, his first record in 5 years, which is receiving great reviews due to the thematic and character-based songs.  We won't disagree.  Enjoy the title track and video from a man who has stayed at the top of his game for 5 decades!     Read More...

"Might Be Right" by White Reaper

Louisville rockers White Reaper recently signed with Elektra and are about to embark on a US tour through this Summer and into November!  Might Be Right is their first single on the new label and we're hoping that a new album is in the works (Pitchfork touted their last album as one of The 20 Best Rock Albums of 2017).  These guys would be perfect for HopSauce Festival 2020, hmmmmmm...

"By Any Means" by Hot Water Music

Hot Water Music recently released Shake Up The Shadows and is celebrating their 25th anniversary!  Chuck Ragan and the guys are playing in Philadelphia this month and then in a few select cities throughout 2019 and into 2020 (see below).  The upbeat By Any Means is one of five songs on the EP which weighs in on the volatile time that we are living in.  This band has an incredible Draw Your Own Line story, for example, Ragan now runs a fly fishing guide service!  Enjoy! Shake Up The Shadows by Hot Water Music June 21-22 Philadelphia, PA - Underground ArtsJune... Read More...

"Fluttering in the Floodlights" by Yeasayer

Yeasayer is slated to release their fifth album, Erotic Reruns, on June 7th!  We featured the NY group back in 2016 when they dropped their last album (Amen & Goodbye), and we've been fans since the early Jetty years when former Creative Director Nick Zegel turned us onto their first album (All Hour Cymbals).  We're excited to listen through the entire 9 tracks next month, but for now we'll leave you with one of the three currently released songs... Read More...

"2all" by Catfish and the Bottlemen

Catfish and the Bottlemen have released their third studio album, The Balance.  Bay Area (CA) artist Tim Lahan has supplied the cover artwork once again and the band is hitting numerous US spots this June while on tour before heading back across the pond.  Check out 2all, the third single released from this album...    Read More...

"Real Life" by Cayucas

This week we're featuring Cayucas, the Santa Monica band made up of twin brothers Zach & Ben Yudin.  The infectious and mostly upbeat songs which fill their latest album are indicative of the summer season upon us.  You'll find all of the emotions associated with relationships throughout the album, especially in the title track Real Life, check it out!   Read More...

"This Thing" by King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard

King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard released their 14th album Fishing For Fishies last month!  The Australian septet has been unpredictable to say the least, releasing 5 albums in 2017 and never wavering with regard to their desire to dive head first into multiple genres.  It will be interesting to see how longtime fans of the Gizz receive this album, but check out This Thing, nod along and judge for yourself!   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. Read More...

"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...

"Clique Bait" by Pine Barons

Pine Barons played our 5th Annual HopSauce Festival last year and will return to play on June 1, 2019 as well!  We usually keep things fresh with completely new lineups, but due to an uncertain weather forecast as we kicked things off in 2018 we felt that more fans deserved to hear how good these guys are!  Make sure to grab your tickets and check out their new single Clique Bait! Clique Bait // Keeping Off The Road by Pine Barons    Read More...
