BlahBlahBlahScience Premieres Albert Kass

Albert Kass is here with his new single "Hurricane!" In the vein of Neil Young meets Real Estate, Kass is closing out 2018 with new single "Hurricane" from his forthcoming album.

BlahBlahBlahScience calls it, "A spare acoustic-driven track that reminds melodically a bit of Neil Young...'Hurricane' is described by Kass as 'my coming of age-you know, that feeling of loss, of coming to terms with the harsh realization that life isn't handed to you.' That narrative of realization is neatly juxtaposed on the track to a subtly sweet main melody."

The 405 Premieres Nightseason

The electrifying duo Nightseason are here with their Coasts EP, a stunning collection of tracks touching on themes of love written exclusively via email. Cut from the same cloth as artists like Yoke Lore, Sir Sly, and Alt-J, Nightseason mixes alt-rock instrumentation with ambient pop elements, resulting in their moody, get-down jams.

Their new track "Wear The Treads Off" from the EP is a slow-burner, wrought with emotion and sincerity. Nightseason tells the story of someone who has given up on love as you hear the heavy-hitting line, "I don't believe in love anymore."

The 405 writes, "the track is a balmy effort, floating through the canal of downtempo alt-rock while overlooking an ambient pop landscape that one wouldn't want to dare pass up...the pair dig deep here with great empathy and strong conviction. The end result is heady and may have listeners feeling a sense of palpable desolation if their mindset is thinking 'I don't believe in love anymore' as well." 

Sports End the Year with a Bang!

The electrifying trio Sports bring their hypnotic, funky, and charming sound to life in their album, Everyone's Invited, which was released earlier this year. 

"Don't Tell Me," a funky, get-down jam off the album, is a head-turner from start to finish. Bringing back the warm sounds of the 70's with soulful guitar riffs, dreamy soundscapes, retro synths, and hushed vocals, Sports deliver a glitzy tune perfect for ringing in the new year.  Give it a listen here!

The Music Ninja Premieres Vern Matz

Indie trio Vern Matz are back with their follow-up single "Tiny Nuclear Reactor." The Music Ninja says "It's not hard to hear nods to Ben Folds or Deathcab for Cutie, what with the casual vocal cadence and soft guitar strums. It should be noted that while this feat is often emulated, it's rarely effective. That's not the case with Vern Matz.”

Consequence of Sound Premieres Baby FuzZ

With a voice that defies genres and transcends time, Baby FuzZ grabs your attention with honeyed vocals in the anthemic ballad, “I’m Still Holding Out For You”.

Consequence of Sound says "His vocals, soaked in a somber potion, hang over warm piano and the occasional glam-rock shriek of an electric guitar. Think of a cross between Tobias Jesso Jr. and The Struts."

All Things Go Premieres mxmtoon

mxmtoon, the stunning project of Oakland-based Maia, brings her ukulele playing, folk-enriched style, and personal story to life in her new single "i feel like chet."

All Things Go says, "Armed with just a ukelele and her voice, mxmtoon is turning a lot of heads. The 18-year-old Oakland artist has been creating enchanting bedroom-folk singles since 2017. Today she keeps things going with "i feel like chet," an ode to legendary jazz trumpeter Chet Baker."

GRAACE releases her SELF SABOTAGE EP

Listen: "SOS"  // Stream SELF SABOTAGE EP 

The Line of Best Fit says "Honest and intimate like a spoken diary entry, 'SOS' combines GRAACE's layered angelic vocals over a luminous piano melody that develops into an endearing pop ballad."

It's the kind of song you actually can't get out of your head - it's catchy, it's dancey, but it's also real and relatable. GRAACE continues to get very real and very raw in her SELF SABOTAGE EP and "SOS" brings a powerful story to life.
