"McKenzie" by Houndmouth

Houndmouth are set to release their fourth full-length, Good For You, in less than a month.  Maybe you know these guys from their very popular 2015 hit, Sedona, or maybe you've followed their great storytelling throughout.  That storytelling remains evident and awesome on their newest single, McKenzie.  They're back out on the road next month with mainly East Coast appearances before heading home to Indiana, then beyond in December, check them out!   Read More...

"Those Words" by Mattiel

This week we're featuring the very talented Mattiel Brown!  Along with guitar and production handled by Jonah Swilley, Mattiel dropped two new songs this past April.  Those Words exudes fun, so check out the video that Brown produced, directed and edited! Read More...

"Now That I Know" by Grizfolk

Grizfolk pieced together their self-titled, 3rd studio album throughout the pandemic.  With band members split between LA and Nashville, you would never know it because the music sounds so tight, but this is simply what so many musicians have been forced to do.  Check out the animated video for Now That I Know below and give the album a listen through! Read More...

"running in place (alternate take)" by MisterWives

MisterWives released an awesome, alternate version of running in place from their album SUPERBLOOM.  The original piano piece, which is great in its own right, gets sped up and celebrates the 1-year anniversary of the 2020 album release.  If you missed this NYC-based band, then definitely go back and give them a listen, or catch them on tour this Fall!

"Better Cause of You" by SUO

Announcing the second of two female-led bands that will be playing our 13th Annual Coquina Jam, our headliner, SUO!  We featured Saara back in 2020 when she dropped Dancing Spots and Dungeons, and now she is back with a new single, Better Cause of You.  Also, as if we planned it, she was recently featured by Ladygunn's Stories From Rockaway Beach Surf And Skate!  Check out the single and the article to see why Saara Untracht-Oakner is a perfect fit for this year's Jam (1-3pm set)!   Read More...

"Take It Back" by Dinosaur Jr.

Dinosaur Jr.'s Sweep It Into Space continues the band's run of influential music over the past four decades.  Kurt Vile jumped in to co-produce this album.  The trio, who broke up back in 1997, but reunited 10 years later, have now released five albums since.  Take It Back may stray a bit from their classic formula, but we're all for the catchy chorus! Read More...

"Shy Away" by Twenty One Pilots

Twenty One Pilots are just a couple of weeks away from releasing their 6th album, Scaled and Icy.  Tyler Joseph & Josh Dun have been working on this one for 2+ years, so we'll see if it can match the success that their priors have achieved.  Check out the single Shy Away which gives us good reason to believe that more Grammy-level music is on the way. Read More...

"Summer Sun" by Matt Berry

The multi-talented Matt Berry has blessed us with a new track, Summer Sun!  If you're not familiar with this this English actor/comedian/musician/writer, then just look up his vast body of work.  We're excited for the rest of the The Blue Elephant album, and this song is perfect as we prepare to slide into Summer!   Read More...

"Don't Let Me Catch You" by Dentist

It seems like yesterday when we checked out Dentist live at the House of Independents.  Damn, that was April of 2019, a glorious time before we were blindsided with a world deprived of events and live music.  This Jersey trio has been in the studio though and will be releasing an album this year!  Check out their new single Don't Let Me Catch You which is fun and upbeat, but with a bit of a warning too!   Read More...

"The Divine Chord" by The Avalanches feat. MGMT & Johnny Marr

The Avalanches are technically only two members, but man there are some expansive sounds on their latest album We Will Always Love You.  Whether it is Robbie and Tony playing instruments, or digging in the crates for samples, or one of the many featured artists that they have pulled in, the space-oriented 25 song journey will help you escape!  We thought that The Divine Chord sounded pretty Christmas'y too, so the timing couldn't be better for this latest release - Happy Holidays! Read More...

"SPARK UP!" by Ball Park Music

If this one doesn't get you out of that funk you're in, then we're not sure what will?!  SPARK UP! is Ball Park Music's first single from their hopefully-coming-soon Mostly Sunny.  This is a great anthem for the majority who are looking to snap out of 2020...spark up people! Read More...

"Call Your Mom" by Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio

The mellow vibes from last week remain as we feature Call Your Mom from Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio this week!  The Seattle-based group announced their second album, I Told You So, which is coming this January.  All three members (Delvon Lamarr, Jimmy James & David McGraw) have been active instrumentalists outside of the band as well, but together the soul/jazz is just too soothing to turn away from!   Read More...

"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! Read More...

"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

We've been vibing on some Jazz around Jetty HQ as of late, so with perfect timing we've been introduced to Ezra Collective!  The London 5-piece puts their own spin on classic Jazz with definite Hip Hop and UK influences.  Get out and dance when they tour the US this month, and check out their new single Quest For Coin from their upcoming album You Can't Steal My Joy... Read More...

"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...
