"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...

"Future Peg" by Man Man

Man Man has had a long cast of members, but the experimental band has always revolved around Ryan Kattner and his piano.  Honus Honus (Kattner's stage name) comes back on May 1 with Dream Hunting in the Valley of the In-Between, Man Man's first proper released since 2013's On Oni Pond.  Check out Future Peg as we look forward to the rest of what is sure to be a super creative album!

"Karen" by Surfer Blood

Surfer Blood is a band that we have always followed since their classic debut Astro Coast back in 2010.  We enjoyed their Covers album last year, but are really excited for some brand new music.  We missed them by a day passing through DE last Summer at Dogfish Head, and we even considered them for our now (unfortunately) cancelled 7th Annual HopSauce Festival.  Check out Karen from Carefree Theatre dropping next month!   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...

"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! Read More...

"We Have To Move On" by Inhaler

You can say that Elijah Hewson has a bit of a head start being Bono's son, but Inhaler has already proved to be a breakout band from Dublin.  Yet to drop a full-length, but being streamed like crazy and touring worldwide, you can bet that they will be around for a while!  Check out their latest single We Have To Move On...       Read More...

"Cars In Space" by Rolling Blackouts C.F.

Today we're featuring a new single by Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever!  The guitar-driven band has been on the move since releasing their debut full-length in 2018, but lucky for us has found some time to make new music as well.  Enjoy Cars In Space, another great tune from the Land Down Under!    Read More...

"Dance Of The Clairvoyants" by Pearl Jam

It was July of 2013 when we last featured Pearl Jam's Mind Your Manners, now they're back with 12 new tracks!  The legendary group will kick off a North American Tour this March which wraps up in April before they hit Europe during Summer.  So far Dance Of The Clairvoyants is the first single to be released from the upcoming Gigaton and by the sound of it we're on the edge of our seats anxious to hear the rest of the album! Read More...

"Paper Cup" by Real Estate feat. Amelia Meath

This week we're featuring Real Estate who have their fifth studio album forthcoming in February.  The similarities between how this group of five have drawn their own line as a band are plentiful with that of our brand story.  We're both from New Jersey, have five members, reconnected after college and have great stories about how we picked our names...but forget about us, go listen to Paper Cup, the first single from The Main Thing (due out Feb 28th)! Read More...

"Everything Else Has Gone Wrong" by Bombay Bicycle Club

After a three year hiatus Bombay Bicycle Club is back with their fifth studio album entitled Everything Else Has Gone Wrong.  After exploring some solo projects, session work and even one band member returning to school, the London 4-piece was ultimately circled back together to make new music.  Check out the title track ~ enjoy! Read More...

"Camouflage" by The Front Bottoms

The Front Bottoms have done it all over the past 10+ years, from playing massive festivals, to touring, to creating a pile of studio albums, EP's and videos.  Sharing some of our own Bergen County (NJ) roots, we take great pleasure in supporting this band whom definitely shares our Draw Your Own Line mentality.  At the end of 2019, they dropped Camouflage, and after some time off for reflection it looks like they are working on another album!   Read More...

"Exoskeleton" by Dan Luke and the Raid

Dan Luke and the Raid's debut album, Out of the Blue, was released just months after the tragic death of guitarist Dylan T. Graves.  Graves and other band members do landscaping in the Bowling Green (KY) area when not on the road.  The shocking lawnmower accident left the band with a tough decision, but moving forward and loving their music is what Graves would have wanted.  The band does have some guidance as frontman Daniel Schultz is the younger brother of Bradley and Matt Schultz (Cage the Elephant).  Check out Exoskeleton which was filmed in Graves' hometown of Franklin (KY)...

"Christmas at My House" by The Dirty Nil

We're keeping it Canadian this week with one of our favorite new bands, The Dirty Nil!  We're all about traditional Holiday tunes, but how great is it when we can add a fresh track to the playlist?!  Whether you're traveling or hosting, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Read More...

"Already There" by Bombargo

This week we're featuring a 7-man band from Saskatchewan, Canada by the name of Bombargo!  Maybe you heard of these guys when Taylor Swift added their song Mr. No Good to her Spotify playlist, but we've stumbled upon them more organically in search of sounds for our next HopSauce Festival (slated for 5/30/20).  The guys haven't dropped a full length album since 2017, but have released a bunch of singles including their most recent Already There - enjoy!     Read More...

"Wait" by The Commonheart

The Commonheart dropped their second album Pressure this past August, wrapped up their headlining Fall tour and are keeping things lively this month down in Florida.  The 10 person band reigning from Pittsburgh is led by frontman Clinton Clegg and there's no doubt that the sound is explosive and soulful.  Bursting onto the scene in 2016, this is one of those groups that we suggest you make it a point to seek out and see live! Read More...

"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!
