"It Ain't Easy" by Delta Spirit

Delta Spirit is back off of a six year hiatus with a brand new album, What Is There.  Lead man Matthew Logan Vasquez has been up front about the band's long break and its positive affect on keeping their friendship true.  On the sonic side, the pause definitely worked as we had trouble choosing a song to feature from the new album which dropped last month.  Enjoy It Ain't Easy, but do your due diligence on the full listen through!

"Material Boy" by Sir Sly

For the second consecutive week we have a band stepping somewhat outside of their comfort zone with a new release.  Sir Sly isn't really known for putting out slightly positive songs, but Material Boy certainly evokes some happy feelings for us listeners.  This one is sort of straight out of lead singer Landon Jacobs' diary, so enjoy the beautiful marriage of deep lyrics and that undeniable synth line.

"Trouble's Coming" by Royal Blood

From the sound of Royal Blood's latest single it seems that the pandemic-induced delay of their 3rd album will be well worth the wait.  You might think that you hear a full band strumming and knocking on a bunch of instruments, a nod to the talent of this duo who are Mike Kerr & Ben Thatcher!  Trouble's Coming is more likely to draw you to the dance floor compared to most of their past work, so we'll see if that direction is also a theme when the album makes its way to us next Spring.   Read More...

"survivin'" by Bastille

Survivin'...that's what most of us are focused on right now!  This year has thrown new and devastatingly tough hurdles at many, so let's make sure to take care of each other.  Bastille has dropped another great single, one that not only uplifts, but also touches on the important topics of anxiety and mental health.  Enjoy!

"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...

"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...

"You Already Know" by Cold War Kids

The Cold War Kids have accomplished so much in the last 15+ years, but their trilogy, which New Age Norms 2 is smack in the middle of, is something epic!  Last year they released New Age Norms and we're betting that 2021 will bring the final album in the series (#3).  All of the albums contain (8) tracks.  You Already Know (Track #3) keeps the storytelling vivid and continues where Who's Gonna Love Me Now (Track #1) left off.  These are the only two tracks currently out off of the new album, but you'll be able to fill in the rest on...

"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!

"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...

"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...

"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! Read More...

"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...

"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...

"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...
