Lonely Biscuits "Things Sure Have Changed"

Local heroes The Lonely Biscuits are quickly becoming the center of attention from Nashville to gaining national exposure when winning the title of mtvU’s College Band of the Year. Having recently released a sick new EP entitled "Things Sure Have Changed," the Biscuits are moving quickly in the direction towards stardom.

"Things Sure Have Changed" is a brilliant work that features the boy’s chill persona laced with a cool and inspiring funk rhythm. Not many artists can twist an album to contain hints of hip hop, reggae, funk, blues and even a little rap all into one album which leaves fans begging for more. With attractive beats and inspiring lyrics, The Lonely Biscuits made a splash with their newly released EP. The foursome is surely not far from hitting rock star status. Check out the EP at their iTunes store HERE-Maria Hartfield


New Heyward Howkins LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Heyward Howkins creates pleasantly beautiful, polished songs that make you feel like you just learned something new about yourself. Yeah, he's the friend that you want with the guitar while sitting around the bonfire on an autumn night. You can stream (below) and purchase his new LP Be Frank, Furness out today.


NYC Album of the Month: Blanche Blanche Blanche - "Breaking Mirrors"

Musical instability in rock music is not appreciated by all, but if you caught that bug - say - from Syd Barret's solo records, or from The Pixies (like we did) it's then very very hard not to embrace it. In their bizarre and (in most cases) gently noisy new album "Breaking Mirrors," Brooklyn duo/quartet Blanche Blanche Blanche cultivates music instability - together with a few other sonic ideas, like a certain angularity that has nothing to do with squares and rectangles, but rather with weirdly shaped polygons. The songs in "Breaking Mirrors" are actually very poppy, they feature simple melodies and structures, but (like all our favorite records) they sound nothing like pop. Sarah Smith's dead pan vocals and ambivalent lirycs double the feeling of estrangedness, and numb alienation created by arrangements that sound like geometry lessons disturbed by radio interferences. Somewhat reminiscent of Suicide and early Wire, but playing their electric instruments with an even more mechanical approach through bit crunching effects and fidelity disintegrating devices, Blanche Blanche Blanche pull off an imaginative hybrid of lo-fi, math rock, goth, noise rock and industrial, that shies away from all current trends, and sounds as fresh and challenging as it sounds, well... depressing. Which is something that's actually making us quite happy right now!


New Video: "Head On" (Live - SoulPancake) - Man Man's Honus Honus

We instantly fell in love with "Head On," Man Man's attempt at writing a hit for their final contractual release with Anti-. And now, it's even more charmingly adorable to us with this performance by Honu Honus on the back of moving flatbed truck for SoulPancake. Thanks to The Swollen Fox for bringing it to our attention and making our day.
