"Don't Give Up" by Lee Fields & the Expressions

We had the pleasure of having Lee Fields headline our HopSauce Festival back in 2017.  Little JB stays busy as he released a new album, It Rains Love, earlier this year and just last week a new song, Don't Give Up.  It's amazing that Lee is still putting music out today after recording his first single in 1969!  We'll take all of the soul that we can get!

"High Steppin'" by The Avett Brothers

This week we're heading back East to feature The Avett Brothers!  The NC-based Americana band are no strangers to most with 10 studio albums, a spot in the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame and top notch production by the likes of Rick Rubin.  Enjoy the video for High Steppin' and check out their latest album, Closer Than Together, which dropped last month.   Read More...

"Disco Queen" by Tropa Magica

This week we're staying on the left coast and featuring Tropa Magica!  Although Disco Queen is not their most recent single (check out Chunti Party), it will bait you into their self-titled, debut album from 2018.  Brothers David and Rene Pacheco have reinvented their band Thee Commons which was known for high energy shows, dancers and maybe even a clown or someone dressed up in a gorilla suit!  We're eagerly awaiting their second album and hope you enjoy their Tropical-Punk from East LA, with a splash of Cumbia and Psychedelia!

"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! Read More...

"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! Read More...

"America (You're Freaking Me Out)" by The Menzingers

There is no doubt that The Menzingers ring in as one of Jetty's favorite bands.  There is a lot of talk about hitting their shows when we're vibing in the treehouse at HQ.  They recently dropped their 6th studio album, Hello Exile, and that unchanged lineup since their inception does not disappoint!  Check out the video for America (You're Freaking Me Out)!      Read More...

"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)!...

"Good Luck" by Broken Bells

Broken Bells just released Good Luck, but odds are we'll probably have to wait a while for their third full-length.  The proven success of James Mercer (The Shins) collaborating with Brian Burton (Danger Mouse) has us all anxious to hear more, but as they've stated in recent interviews, their both constantly writing and recording on multiple projects.  They have confirmed that they are working on that third album... Read More...

"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! Read More...

"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. 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...

"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...

"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...
