Download: Ocean Is Theory – “Best Intentions”

Ocean Is Theory

This song sets the tone for what kind of mood I’m in for today; something a little more visceral, emphasis on all things moving and upbeat, “Best Intentions” epitomizes those ideals.

Download: DZ Deathrays – “Gebbie Street”

DZ DeathraysThese guys sound more like London than Brisbane and for some reason that makes DZ Deathrays more endearing. Arrogantly confident in the best kind of way, this song is as powerful as any form of liquid courage when it comes to giving Caucasians the support they need  to approach the opposite sex.

Download: Jhameel – “Wicked”

Jhameel WickedAs I’m typing this Jhameel is #2 on We Are The Hunted‘s emerging artist list! There is a reason I put this guy’s stuff up every chance I get. For fuck’s sake have you ever heard someone with more potential?!? Next week he drops his acoustic track which is the one I’m looking forward to the most out of the “Waves” series, something inside me says it’s going to be magical.

Download: Alabama Shakes – “On Your Way”

Alabama ShakesYou know that friend of yours who is obsessed with Adele; The one who only seems to think that one good singer has surfaced since the cold war and that singer is Adele? We all have one. Alabama Shakes is the closest thing to gaining any sort of ground in the indie vs mainstream battle with said friend. I’m not even a huge Janis Joplin fan but there is something about listening to “On Your Way”  that makes me really appreciate what she did for music and her role in getting us to the point that we have a new band like Alabama Shakes.

Download: Phantogram – “Turning Into Stone”

Phantogram

To say I was timid about the Nightlife EP would be an understatement, something in me believed that Phantogram would never come close to making anything that could ever hold a candle to “Eyelid Movies.” It feels good to be wrong sometimes… this is one of those moments.

Download: Cults Featuring Freddie Gibbs – “Bad Things”

CultsOutside of J. Nolan there hasn’t been another rapper I’ve name dropped in as many conversations about the future of Hip-Hop as Freddie Gibbs. The guy is the best of the best and still floating under the radar. Cults bringing him on board for this song takes the whole Washed Out/Nas mashup to an entire new cross genre level. I expect to hear this one remixed a couple thousand times in the months to come.

Download: Death In The Afternoon – “Oh Youth!”

Death In The Afternoon

Oh Youth!” is an ambient New Wave track that consistently floats in the background around my apartment, it’s an ideal companion for doing just about anything.

Download: Amanda Mair – “Doubt”

Amanda Mair

Doubt” belongs on the Footloose soundtrack (original or remake take your pick). It’s 80’s montage perfection. John Hughes could have put this one to some real use.

Download: Emil And Friends – “Crystal Ball”

Emil And Friends

This song came out in October and is my first experience with Emil And Friends. “Crystal Ball” is synth work at its finest.

Download: Coolrunnings – “The Fool”

Coolrunnings

I downloaded a handful of tracks from these guys out of Knoxville and on first listen wasn’t that impressed. Not that I didn’t think their music was good it just didn’t stand out to me. I’ve noticed them popping up more and more frequently over the last month and a half on blogs I respect causing me to reevaluate my initial impression off Coolrunnings. So last weekend I sat down and gave them a second chance, I wonder how many other bands I’ve written off when shuffling through new songs that are actually really good, I bet there has been a lot.

Download: Pictureplane – “Post Physical”

Pictureplane

Travis Egedy creates some damn good mixtape music. “Post Physical” has made it on nearly every mix I’ve made up for friends as of late, this song speaks for itself as to why.

Download: Cut Copy – “So Haunted”

Cut CopyMelbourne‘s Cut Copy have been make huge waves in the mid-west psyche over the last few years. It’s hard to pinpoint what it is about these guys that makes those of us half-way around the world attach with such magnetism other than it’s just really solid music that works well to sing along and tap your feet with. What other reason do we need?
