"You're Different" by The Shelters

This week we're traveling cross country to bring you some SoCal vibes via The Shelters!  They released their Sophmore effort back in September, Jupiter Sidecar, and although it has a super talented roster from a production/mixing/engineering standpoint, it should be noted that the legendary Tom Petty had produced their debut album (The Shelters; 2016).  After Petty's tragic passing (October 2, 2017), the band strived to get back into the studio and grow.  Check out You're Different!

"Shout" by The Vaughns

This week we're featuring Jersey natives The Vaughns!  We've heard reverberations of this 4-piece and wanted to travel back to this past Spring to feature their debut release, FOMO.  Check out the video for Shout and try to catch them on the tail end of their Fall tour if they happen to be cruising through your hood!

"Everyone Hides" by Wilco

We're sure that fans of Chicago's Wilco were pleased to see an end to the group's performing hiatus as well as the release of their 11th studio album Ode to Joy!  Like so many bands, the members have changed over the years, but the current 6-piece has been together since the early/mid 2000's.  On the new album, they continue their long journey of twisting and turning through multiple genres.  Check out the upbeat video for Everyone Hides!

"Peach Fuzz" by CAAMP

CAAMP is a folk trio from Columbus, OH, and they're definitely on the come up!  About a year ago someone in our HQ brought the band up, we made note, then in the midst of a crazy busy Summer we missed their second full-length, By and By.  We're glad that we circled back because, as their website boasts, they make beautiful noise.  These guys aren't by any means unknown as they've played a bunch of top-tier festivals and toured all over, but we bet there are plenty of people who are yet to check them out (and they need to)!...

"Waste No Time" by Chali 2na & Krafty Kuts feat. Dynamite MC

This week we're featuring Waste No Time from the powerful collaboration of Chali 2na & Krafty Kuts!  The legendary rapper from Jurassic 5 & Ozomatli teamed up with Martin Reeves, who has achieved international fame as a DJ/Beatmaker, carries a strong 15 tracks on their new album.  The superhero-themed full-length is aptly titled and includes some strong featured artists just like Dynamite MC on this track - check it out!

"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!

"City Lies II" by The Tins

This week we're featuring Buffalo natives, The Tins!  These guys certainly Draw Their Own Line as they executed a Kickstarter in order to complete their second album as well as a short documentary.  The Tins, produced by Robby Takac of the Goo Goo Dolls dropped last Summer and the doc is due out soon.  Check out their new single, City Lies II, and catch them touring locally through NY into September.

"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...

"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! 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...

"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...

"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...
