"The Colour of Love" by Smashing Pumpkins

The Smashing Pumpkins have released two new tracks as they ready their next release.  Cyr & The Colour of Love both stray away from traditional Pumpkins' sound and more toward synth-pop.  It will be interesting to hear over 20 new songs that Billy Corgan calls pretty different when they drop their first album with Sumerian Records.     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!

"Rusty Nail" by Peter Bjorn and John

One of the most memorable songs from the early years of Jetty is Young Folks by Peter Bjorn and John.  They recently announced an American tour as part of their 20th anniversary as well as the March '20 release of their 9th studio album Endless Dream.  Although we're still a few months away from the aforementioned, we do have a typically infectious single to enjoy in the meantime with Rusty Nail!   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...

"Quest For Coin" by Ezra Collective

"Harmony Hall" by Vampire Weekend

Fans of Vampire Weekend have waited six years for new material.  A two hour guitar-loop teased Harmony Hall, one of two new songs that were released last week.  Perhaps most exciting, word is that the new album, Father of the Bride, will be an 18 track double album!  The band plans to release two new songs each month through March.  Even though co-founder Rostam Batmanglij has left to explore a solo career, he is listed as an additional producer on the single below...

"Among The Ghosts" by Lucero

Though they may have seemed like totally different worlds, the juxtaposition of punk, folk music and alternative country have intertwined into a genre as no one could have foreseen. And carrying that flag for the last two decades is Lucero, from Memphis, TN.  Among the Ghosts is Lucero’s 12th record and certainly a notable one in their discography, laden with deeper storytelling and an overall darker tone. It doesn’t have those wild Lucero drinking songs, horns, or honkey tonk anthems, but rather intricately woven stories of characters in the American South.  The tone is more along the lines of frontman Ben Nichols’ 2009...

"Humility" by Gorillaz

This past June, Gorillaz released another new album, The Now Now, hot on the heels of Humanz which had won the BRIT Award for Best British Group in February.  Damon Albarn, who left Blur to explore relentless fusions of hip-hop, synth-pop, folk, techno, funk and so much more, conceived this album while on tour in the US.  The virtual band and artwork of Jamie Hewlett is genius, and you're never quite sure where you're going to go with each song, but it's sure to be a sonic adventure!  Check out Humility feat. George Benson! Read More...

"Gratitude" by Big Red Machine

In 2008, The National's Aaron Dessner sent Bon Iver's Justin Vernon an instrumental sketch of a song called "Big Red Machine".  This was before they had met in person.  Justin wrote a song to it, interpreting the Big Red Machine title as a heart.  10 years of friendship later and their band, Big Red Machine, was born.  Each song on their album includes a large number of collaborators via the PEOPLE platform and the record was produced by Justin and Aaron with longtime collaborator Brad Cook primarily at Aaron's studio, Long Pond, in Upper Hudson Valley, NY.  Check out the song, Gratitude!
