“Rough” by Vial

VIAL - Rough (Official Video)
“I stumbled across this band as they were opening for Demin Matriarch and they blew me away.  They’re going to take the world by storm before they reach their mid 20s.” -- Becca


“Up 2 U” by Walk the Moon

Walk The Moon - Up 2 U (Live on the Honda Stage)
“The album, “Talking Is Hard” was the soundtrack to every 4hr drive back to college. The swells that occur leading into each major section of this tune suck you in and out of a vortex of sound. So many neat production elements in this track!” -- Allie 


“Queen of the Weekend” by Bower

Queen of the Weekend

“The hella-talented multi-instrumentalist out of L.A. dropped this fat tune last week, my favorite of his to date. Perfect for a Saturday night boogie.” -- Andrew


“5 out of 6” by Dessa

Dessa "5 out of 6" (official video)

“I’ve just finished reading My Own Devices by Dessa. Dessa has a great way with words, and she presents it in her texts, as well as represents it in her music.” -Becca


“South London Forever” by Florence + The Machine

Florence + The Machine - South London Forever (Live)
Listening to this as I walked through South London gave both the song and place new meaning to me…funny how art can do that.


“A Night Like This” by Caro Emerald

Caro Emerald - A Night Like This (Official Video)

“A great representation of modern swing mixing the new with the old creating something everyone and their grandmother can love.” -- Dave


“On a Farm” by Joy Again

Joy Again - On A Farm
“Really dark song with a juxtaposing melody and instrumentals. But while it’s dark it’s enticing, like a horror movie or dark comedy.” -- Dave


“3AM” by Matchbox Twenty

Matchbox Twenty - 3AM (Official Video)

“This song was released the year I was born, 1994, which is my only explanation to why I love it so much after 25 years. What happened to music that lasts decades!? Is it the evolution of culture, the sign of the times, the loss of artistic appreciation!? Ah the perils of modernity. Anyways, this song sounds like a lifetime.” -- Allie
