It’s almost here. On April 23rd The Neighbourhood will release their debut album I Love You via Columbia Records. You can stream it below in all of its glory, thanks to Rolling Stone. I don’t know if I was anticipating an album this year more than this one, and so far, it does not disappoint. All aspects of one of our favorite bands are in full effect here; it’s dark, brooding, sensual, raunchy, bleak, confident, transformative, manipulative, suave, angry, and always lovely.
The Neighbourhood have found their niche within the industry and look to expand upon it with their debut full-length I Love You, which will be out on April 23rd via Columbia Records. I genuinely believe these guys will rightfully infiltrate the mainstream by the summertime. You can quote me on that. Below are two video snippets, featuring brand new songs, “Everybody’s Watching Me (Uh Oh)” and “W.D.Y.W.F.M?,” from I Love You. If for some reason you weren’t already excited for the album, now you will be.

I get emails from people I don’t know. That’s just part of my life now. Depending on how intriguing the subject line is or even how much free time I have, I’ll open the mass email, and occasionally, I’ll like the song held within it. When I get an email that says, “For fans of The 1975, Pacific Air, [and] The Neighbourhood,” I have to stop and pay attention to it. This guy knows what he’s doing, and either he will be dead off in his comparison or he’s managing my new favorite band. Luckily in the case of The Hard Knocks, he’s managing my new favorite band. The SoCo-based four-piece is headed in the right direction, garnering comparisons to some of my favorite buzz bands of the past few years. It’s gonna be very interesting to see where this single takes them, and what’s next for this group.
We’ll keep you posted on The Hard Knock’s debut ME EP, coming out May 7th.
Little Daylight decided to make the move and remix The Neighbourhood‘s “Sweater Weather“. Ballsy move if you ask me, but they pulled it off. The Neighbourhood has risen to be one of the biggest “buzz bands” of the year, receiving feature requests from some of the top festivals around the world. They deserve it. These guys rock. And this remix aint bad either!
From the start, The Neighbourhood seemed like the band that had it all figured out. They had the personality, the aesthetic, and most importantly, the music to take over the world. And trust me, they will take over the world. Already, they are signed to Columbia and are playing some of the biggest festivals on the planet. Over the past year or so, they have steadily released music accompanied by stunningly cinematic videos, but alas, I think the Cali band has outdone themselves. Introducing the perfect video, where each shot is more picturesque than the previous one. Prepare to be amazed.
Look for their debut album I Love You on April 23rd.
To revamp its latest single, “Let It Go,” The Neighbourhood elicited fellow Cali-native Ghost Loft to head-bobbing results. This remix keeps the ominous and stark vibes of the original, while adding some choice trap sounds that are oh so popular right now. Swerve, amirite?
When people or God made the word “cool,” this is what they had in mind (maybe). One of our favorite bands The Neighbourhood recently dug up these ’90s classics and mashed them up into really probably a perfect cover.

2012 has been a good year for music. I know I found some songs and albums that will be with me for years. More importantly, however, I discovered some young artists whose careers I will follow. A lot of these EPs and mixtapes are debuts for artists. These are, perhaps, the first glances at the future of music. Check it out.

The Neighbourhood, recently named one of Sunset’s Best Artists of 2012, premiered a new song called “A Little Death” today on Noisey . As to be expected with this group of Californian studs, the song is fantastic. It’s got the typical Neighbourhood feel: dark instrumentals, sultry lyrics, and crooning vocals. Ladies, are you turned on yet?
I’m writing about a friend, and let me begin by saying, when I say that I’m writing about a friend, I actually am writing about a friend. I’m not backhandedly writing about myself. You see, this friend (a real person) is stuck in a relationship where the other person is horrible, and everybody knows it… except her. We have told her this many times and have even given her a full scale intervention to no avail. But maybe this song will help her. This is the first single from 2012′s best new band The Neighbourhood off of their upcoming Thank You EP, which is out December 17th (8 days after my birthday). “Let It Go” finds the band in an eerily similar position as my friend. Check it out.
Remember what the people said when it’s said and done… let it goooo!
It’s been a minute since we last heard from The Neighbourhood (but a minute actually isn’t that long?). To recap they dropped a free I’m Sorry EP at the end of spring and have been steadily working on a debut album since then. With this video below, they now have visuals for two I’m Sorry highlights and have really just “done it right” in terms of timing their releases and gaining a loyal fanbase (The Hoodlums). Other indie bands–take note. Check out the super cool and cinematic visuals below along with a new version of “Female Robbery.” The beginning is so fucking epic.
The Neighbourhood is cool, so cool in fact that I’m going to go on a little bit of a tangent. Do you guys remember The O.C.? Well, I loved that show. One of the great things about it (besides Seth Cohen) was its soundtrack. Over the years that show cranked out so many of my favorite songs–it’s ridiculous. Well, The Neighbourhood sounds like a band that could have been featured on The O.C. if it were still around. They are young and cool. They fit a general indie rock sound, despite their hip-hop tendencies. And perhaps most importantly, their lyrics are smart and paint a vivid picture of love lost in California. If there’s one band I’d say to watch out for in 2012 and beyond it’s The Neighbourhood. Check out the two new songs featured on their EP and download the entire thing below–you won’t be sorry you did.
