Okay yeah I realize I’m fairly late on this. Whatever. If we’re being honest, it took me a bit to warm up to Aer; I never really listened to them, but I always brushed them off as “not my type.” Well as it turns out, I’m a degenerative college student, and this song makes me think about drinking things outside in warm weather, so needless to say it is in fact my type.
“Says She Loves Me” has that light, airy vibe that you’re going to start looking for as the weather starts to warm up, so make sure you bookmark this one. And the girls aren’t very hard on the eyes, either.
The boys from Aer are back with a new EP, titled “Strangers. The EP’s single, “Take It Wrong,” was one of my favorite Aer songs to date so I was excited for the full EP to drop.
While I think “Take it Wrong” is definitely the strongest offering on the EP, “Tell it Straight” and “Strangers,” which features Mod Sun and was originally produced by the legend Pete Rock, are standouts as well. The other two songs, a Ratatat remix called “Guaranteed” and a self-produced track called “She’ll Miss It,” aren’t as strong in my opinion.
Overall, a somewhat disappointing EP, only insofar as “Take it Wrong” was such a strong initial offering and the other songs on the EP aren’t on the same level. The other tracks just aren’t as “Aery,” and don’t have the trademark Aer vibe in the same way as the single.
Regardless, definitely worth a download…new Aer is always, always a good thing.

Aer is back, and better than ever. With their first release since this summer’s The Bright Side, “Take it Wrong” is the first single off of the upcoming Strangers EP, set to drop on March 19th. They sent this over to me with excitement, describing it as “one of their best tracks” to date. I could not agree more. Their sound is maturing really nicely, and this song seems to be at a higher level, at least instrumentally, than that which they have released in the past. The fat bass line is carries the song throughout and sets a laid back, mellow vibe from the start. Combined with the easy going guitar, the song permeates the sound that Aer’s come up on.
This is a great first single, and if it serves as any foreshadowing, Strangers will be on a new level for Aer. I’m excited for it to drop in just under two weeks. Be on the look out for that, and catch Aer on tour now with Hoodie Allen.
Today, we get a video of Aer covering arguably my favorite Dispatch song, “Two Coins.” Aer does their fellow New Englander’s serious justice with this very well done cover. Perfect for a mellow afternoon, take it easy and enjoy this one.
Catch Aer on The Bright Side Tour, hopefully coming to a town near you!
As a blogger, I almost never buy music that I post. Aer released a new song today, called Floats My Boat, and for whatever reason I have yet to receive an email with the MP3 attached. Well, I like Aer so much and have such high expectations for each of their releases that I actually went onto iTunes and paid a whole 99 cents for the track. Fuck it, YOLO.
Anyways, this is Aer’s bread and butter here, that mellow vibe that makes their music perfect for the next few months of summer. The bouncy production here gives the song a great beat, and with a catchy albeit relaxed hook, combined with a few great verses from the boys, makes this another must-download Aer track.
Enjoy the juicy freshness.
Aer is back with another video, this time opting to go with Exodus Productions as opposed to their usual director, Matt MiGGz. To be honest, I think this might be their best video yet.
The black and white coloring adds another element to the video, and the visuals are pretty stunning. There’s not too much going on in this video, but the well shot piece is interesting enough on its own.
Enjoy, and catch Aer on their summer tour with OCD this summer.
I haven’t listened to Aer in a minute but this new release has had me bumping the What You Need EP all day, and I’m sure they’ll be in constant rotation throughout the spring and summer. 65 and sunny where I am, and nothing is as suited for a mellow, relaxed, nice day outside as Aer’s music is.
They released the video for Wonderin’ Why earlier today, and per usual mattMiGGZ delivers the crispiest of visuals to go along with one of my favorite tracks off of What You Need.
Shouts out to Carter and David for getting it in with the chicas. YOLO.
This one’s pretty mellow, not a bad one to be listening to if you’re having an easy weekend or a lazy Sunday.
Reeves of Aer provides a nice verse and Jacob Es lays down a soothing hook.
More solo Aer for us to enjoy on this fine Thursday evening? Ah, what a damn treat.
This one’s a remix of Rihanna, which I guess is normal considering Reeves remixed Soulja Boy? Whatever. They do it.
This one’s more fit for a party than a bonfire, and it’s not the first time the boys from Aer have tackled a house beat–they went over Avicii for “Shot Clock.”
Not necessarily a potent or meaningful track, but a fun one nonetheless. Enjoy.
Carter, aka Reeves, of Aer has released a solo track, a remix of Soulja Boy. Aer remixing Soulja Boy? Interesting. Very interesting.
Carter’s smooth flow works perfectly over this extremely smooth Soulja production, and any new Aer is a positive thing to me. Really looking forward to their new project, and I think we can expect a solid slew of singles to tide us over until the project drops. Carter’s got a great voice and a really strong ability to switch up his flow, and this song is a great testament to that.
Aer remixed Ratatat’s Beat 6; if you know anything about Ratatat or the beats you make, you know that they are some of the dopest around.
This is easily one of my favorite Ratatat beats, and Ratatat’s remix of Slim Thug, T.I. and Bun B’s “Three Kings” is incredible.
Aer flows really well over this beat, which is something you should come to expect every time from the Aer guys.
Not my favorite Aer song, but I really like everything they put out and this is no exception.
So remember how whenever I posted Aer I was always like “these guys are awesome I can’t wait for them to blow up?”
Well that’s happening. Like right now, at this moment, they’re blowing up.
Right behind Eminem/Royca da 5’9 and in front of (IN FRONT OF) Nicki Minaj, Eminem, Jay-Z and Kanye West lies Aer on the current iTunes hip-hop chart. They released this EP this morning, and it is by far some of their best work to date.
My favorite song off of the EP is the title track, which has a really catchy hook and a great, mellow guitar riff. It combines their great singing and rapping voices and perhaps if I wrote for a different blog I would describe it as sick and chill. It is both of those things, in droves.
Aer’s going to be big. Like, really, really big. Trust me.
Support good music and buy the EP on iTunes!
