"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!

"Wild Blue" by John Mayer

John Mayer's Sob Rock is a comfortable escape from the tumultuous times that we are living in.  With an obvious homage to the 80's (check out the cover and marketing campaign), you'll also find a stellar cast of producers and musicians if you dig through the liner notes.  Whether you love Mayer's touring with Dead & Company, or hate his clashes with the media, his talent is certainly on another level.  Enjoy Wild Blue! Read More...

"Survivor" by Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats

Nathaniel Rateliff has rounded up the Night Sweats for their third album coming this November!  After a solo release in 2020, get ready for another collaboration from these (8) talented humans.  The first single is powerful, and you're likely going to hear it for a long time (i.e. S.O.B.)...enjoy Survivor! Read More...

"That Life" by Unknown Mortal Orchestra

After dropping the single Weekend Run earlier this Summer, Unknown Mortal Orchestra has followed it up with another one entitled That Life.  The song, inspired by a painting with "a mixture of crazy stuff going on, representing heaven, earth, and hell", throws a lot of good, band and in between at you, but hey, that's life!  Hopefully, we are driving toward a new album from the New Zealand-based outfit as it has been a few years since their last full-length release. Read More...

"Marigold" by Jelani Areyah

We came across the rising indie artist Jelani Areyah via Sirius XMU Sessions.  That led us to his new and first full-length album I've Got Some Living To Do.  The SoCal native is definitely drawing his own line and when listening through the album, he's asking all of us to do the same.  Check out the sensual, soulful Marigold! Read More...

"Until the Night Is Gone" by Sleepwalkers

A couple of albums, led by a couple of brothers (Austin & Michael York), that's the Sleepwalkers.  Now there is even a couple of versions of their new single Until the Night Is Gone as they just released a remix featuring Corfu, but here's the original.  Enjoy it, and if you're like us, you're anxious to hear a couple more!   Read More...

"We Are Between" by Modest Mouse

It's been a minute since Modest Mouse blessed us with a new album.  The Golden Casket has arrived, and it seems to be worth the wait!  Frontman Isaac Brock has done it again, and maybe having 2 kids in recent years has injected just a little bit more optimism into the music?  Check out the instant classic We Are Between! Read More...

"The Numbers" by Rise Against

If you're not fired up after listening to Rise Against, then you're not listening.  Their 9th studio album, Nowhere Generation, is full of questions about and suggestions for our current state of affairs.  Every generation has to take action to make the world a better place for our future leaders, wouldn't you agree? Read More...

"Potions" by Day Wave

Back during the pandemic, Jackson Phillips created his Crush EP right out of his home using Lo-fi equipment.  You wouldn't know (or care) how he made the songs though, because the end product showcases his talents as a multi-instrumentalist and producer.  Check out Potions, we bet you'll agree... Read More...

"Ready for Tomorrow" by Babe Rainbow

The chill beach vibes from Aussie psych rockers Babe Rainbow continue on their 4th album, Changing Colours.  In our book, a bunch of avid surfers who are mildly obsessed with everything "throwback" makes for a great recipe.  Are you Ready for Tomorrow? 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!
