"Something For Me" by The Ones You Forgot

We're changing gears this week and bringing things back to our home Jersey turf with The Ones You Forgot!  Coincidentally, we just met Jenna Bruno, the quintet's lead singer, and we were pleasantly introduced to the bands full-of-life songs.  Despite the smackdown that COVID put on the entire music industry, these guys were able to sneak out a new single in July...check out Something For Me!   Read More...

"Earthquake Weather" by Dirty Heads

The Dirty Heads just released another single leading up to their next release California Island (March '21).  Earthquake Weather is another masterful mixture of Hip-Hop, Reggae and Rock.  After releasing Bum Bum earlier, we now have two solid tracks that have us looking forward to their 8th studio album early next year!

"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...

"Heat Waves" by Glass Animals

Dreamland, the third album from Glass Animals, dropped earlier this month.  Drummer Joe Seaward has made an amazing and full recovery from a horrific cycling accident and the foursome is once again fully intact.  This album gets more personal as lead singer, songwriter, and producer Dave Bayley went back on his original thinking that songs about the band itself would be selfish.  Dive into Heat Waves and enjoy the dog days of summer!

"Where I'm From" by Bobby J From Rockaway

The solid lyrical prowess of Bobby J From Rockaway shines over beats by Statik Selektah on Endless Summer.  The 7-song EP is a personal one with Autumn Leaves being a letter to his father and Where I'm From big upping his hometown of Rockaway.  The video was shot entirely on location during the St. Patrick's Day parade and just before the COVID-19 lock down, so it surely hits home for everyone now into the dog days of Summer and still battling pandemic-induced rules.  Enjoy this Summer anthem!            Read More...

"No Skips" by Oddisee feat. Ralph Real

Plenty of musicians could write and produce an entire album during a 2-week quarantine, but not with the quality of Odd Cure.  Oddisee had just returned from overseas to his Brooklyn studio before being locked down, and he obviously used the time wisely with his usual sharp lyrics and live instrumentation which was recorded remotely by his band members.  Check out No Skips, one of six great new songs from Amir Mohamed el Khalifa, all of which are cleverly meshed with skits of real phone calls to friends and family during the early parts of quarantine.

"Still Wandering" by Bronze Radio Return

This week we're featuring Bronze Radio Return, a band that you've likely heard, but never heard of...?!  We say that because a number of their songs have been featured on shows/commercials...and they've toured the world...and they have (7) albums...and they've played all of the major festivals!  Check out the new single Still Wandering...enjoy! Read More...

"Good Shit Happens" by Michael Franti & Spearhead

This week we're sharing the good vibes of Michael Franti & Spearhead!  The new album title, Work Hard & Be Nice, says it all as that is sort of what we all need to do during these divided times.  Hey, bad shit happens, but good shit happens too, so let's focus on the latter and be better humans! 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! Read More...

"3 on E" by Vulfpeck feat. Antwaun Stanley

If you like jam bands and good 'ole fashioned funk, then you'll be into Vulfpeck's latest release.  The Joy of Music. The Job of Real Estate only includes three songs, but keeps the boys busy as they have released new music in every year since 2011.  The vid for 3 on E features lyrics by frequent touring partner Antwaun Stanley ~ enjoy!    Read More...

"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...

"World On Fire" by The Bouncing Souls

The Bouncing Souls were in the studio on the front end of the COVID-19 pandemic.  World On Fire was born during this time of great uncertainty, but as they suggest, it's a song about keeping the light in sight.  Let's stay positive! Read More...

"Portland" by Rat Kid Cool

There's not a ton of info out there on Ciaran O'Donnell, former touring member of The Front Bottoms, but he just dropped some new music and we love it!  Check out Portland, one of two new songs aptly named for the The Pine Tree State where it seems like O'Donnell is spending his time.  This one is a Summer anthem for us - where will your dance floor be at?!   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...

"Deep Dream" by STRFKR

 Portland (OR) based STRFKR are back with a new full-length album, Future Past Life.  The video for the single Deep Dream offers a cinematic approach as well as a snowy wilderness that can't help, but reinforce the word quarantine.  Starfucker's origin revolves around a lot of celebrity and industry BS that they never wanted to be a part of, something for us all to think about as we throw around the phrase getting back to normal (after COVID-19)...  Read More...

"Texas Sun" by Khruangbin & Leon Bridges

After touring together in 2018, Khruangbin and Leon Bridges, respectively from Houston and Fort Worth, have teamed up for a 4 song EP called Texas Sun.  The worldly influences of Khruangbin match rather perfectly with Bridges' throwback, soulful sound.  This is music to chill and reflect to... Read More...

"Tidal Wave" by Butcher Brown

We had been checking out Butcher Brown for a while, but with many of our events postponed for the first half of 2020, we'll have to settle for a Music Monday!  If you're a Hip Hop fan, then you undoubtedly know and love Black Moon's Who Got The Props, but you may not have known that the song uses a Ronnie Laws jazz sample.  Put the two songs together and you have a beautiful blend and Butcher Brown's new single, Tidal Wave.  We hope to get these guys on stage at one of our future events!   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!
