[Song Premiere] SomeKindaWonderful - Police (Stream)

As if they knew that I needed a little something to get me through this week from hell, SomeKindaWonderful decided to premiere their brand-new, trippy track “Police.” It brings you in nice and easy with some smooth vocals, but slowly it starts to hit you and soon enough you’re like “Holy crap man why am I sweating I’m just sitting here in the library and it’s kinda cold and I’m not even at practice like what’s with the sweat Body am I at a concert” and then you punch a hole through the closest wall, which sucks because you have a test tonight and need that hand to write with.

Songs of the Week: August 5 – August 11

SongsOfTheWeek1

1. The Head and The Heart – Shake (Posted by Lydia)

I have seen The Head and The Heart twice now, and each time, they have completely blown me away. The first time was in Chicago’s Millennium Park when they opened for Iron & Wine, and the second time was in Houston earlier this summer. They’re one of those bands who truly put a spell over their audience; their music is so gripping, emotive, and, to put it simply, damn good. This one is a little less folky and a little more rock n’ roll, but certainly has the signature H&H sound to it. The Head and the Heart’s new album, Let’s Be Still, will be released on 10/15/13.

Even if it was a mistake, I won’t forget your face

2. Dillon Francis ft. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – Without You (Posted by Alicia)

So when this track came out, people had said that Dillon Francis was crying at the end of his set as he dropped this song for the first time, which caught my attention. Rarely is electronic music able to instill emotion in such a powerful way. In his own words: “This song is very meaningful to me because as TEED and I were working on the song, I was having relationship problems of my own. He ended up writing the song about the whole situation I was going through.” This is certainly a break of pace for Francis, and one he has said he wants to continue in. I think he should…what he has created here is as moving as it is catchy. While indie kids are going to listen to Bon Iver when they break up, EDM kids are going to listen to this.

If only you could see the future, it’s all yours now

3. Jon Waltz – Somewhere Else (Posted by Arjun)

Jon Waltz is clearly heavily influenced by ASAP Rocky, as his style sounds pretty much directly derived from the ASAP movement. That being said, he does it well. The trippy, trap production he raps over in Somewhere Else compliments his flow, and Waltz goes hard throughout. He gained a new fan in me with this song, even though what he’s putting out does not seem to have a particularly unique sound at this point. It will be interesting to seem him evolve going forward.

4. SomeKindaWonderful – Reverse (Oliver Nelson Remix) (Posted by Arjun)

SomeKindaWonderful‘s debut track “Reverse” was an absolute jam in its own right, and got me really excited for them to release new music. Oliver Nelson‘s remix really just brings the track to a whole other level, though, and gives it an awesome disco-dance vibe. Tough to not bob my head to this and do a little chair dance as I sit down to type this. Definitely a track I will throw on at a party, this one has huge mainstream potential.

5. Denitia and Sene – It’s Your Fault (Posted by Alicia)

I’m not really sure how it happened, but this genre really snuck up on me and now I can’t stop listening to it. Each week, I seem to be including more and more glitzed out, laid back electronic music, a genre I really never listened to very much until recently. Now I seem to not be able to get enough. I think Disclosure was what got me into it in the first place, but now it seems to almost be an obsession. It just puts me in a different place, and I’m digging it.

Tape Tuesday: Lost in the Funhouse

New Tape Tuesday!

I respect people who try to stay true to themselves, even when everything in the world is trying to get them to do the opposite. Completely original people, too, like Andy Kaufman who heavily inspired this tape. They say, “You are who you surround yourself with,” but sometimes you get lost. I think recently I was lost–trapped in the dark corners of my own mind. This mixtape is about how I lost myself and how I continue to fight the surrounding negative energy. It’s less sad and serious than it sounds. These 17 songs are essential summer music. Burn them on a CD, go for a drive, and get lost in the funhouse.

  1. Josh Record – Wonder
  2. Bipolar Sunshine – Rivers
  3. The Hard Knocks – Pocket Full of Change
  4. Wet – Bad Idea
  5. SomeKindaWonderful – Reverse
  6. Cave Painting – Rio
  7. Swim Deep – She Changes The Weather (Whitely Remix)
  8. Mychal Cohen – Sentimental Guy
  9. Cowboy Indian Bear – Let It Down
  10. Noname Gypsy – Sunday Morning
  11. SPEAK – Peaks
  12. Kid Astray – Hey Sister
  13. The Casual Tuesday – Seatbelt
  14. Majical Cloudz – Bugs Don’t Buzz
  15. Planetarian – Zoned
  16. PHOX – Slow Motion
  17. The Dear Hunter – Whisper

If it were up to me,
I would’ve remained in that dream a little later

SomeKindaWonderful – Reverse

New SomeKindaWonderful!

It’s exam week for me, so I’m going to have to keep this short. SomeKindaWonderful‘s debut single sounds like if Xavier Rudd made love to The Weeknd, and somehow defied science to create a love child.
