When I first discovered this song I was blown away. With me recently getting into the indie scene I had a lot of ground to cover. This song always stood out to me and set a standard of creativity in the genre that I look for in other artists. This jazzy Lo-Fi electronic fusion was an undeniably great mix. Which was why Homeshake chose this as the lead single for his album Fresh Air.
Peter Sagar is the former guitarist of indie giant Mac DeMarco. Which makes perfect since when you think about it. Spending years behind an artist like that. Learning and honing your skills preparing for your big splash. I don’t blame him for going solo. Peter and Mac are still on good terms. It was just time for Peter to break off and show the world that he’s more than just a guitarist. And with this album he’s catapulted himself into the higher ranks of the indie scene and I’m sure there will come a time when he’s just as mainstream as Mac DeMarco. He has the potential to hold the torch.
I’m waving my Homeshake flag high. This guy is gonna be huge. Mark my words!

Parallelephants are a local synth pop band based out of San Antonio TX. Since I currently reside there, I’m pretty hip to what’s popular as far as local talent goes. This is my favorite local band and they don’t half as much love as they deserve in my opinion. Their unique blend of electronic, alternative and hip hop gives them a unique voice in the city that can’t be easily replicated.

Choker is back for his second EP Honeybloom and I couldn’t be happier. Seemingly out of nowhere he dropped this project with little to no promotion. Not one for social media, only sporting a Twitter account that tweets about twice a year. Choker mysteriously crept back onto the scene with a cryptic tweet stating that his new project was out now. He’s the type of artist who communicates through music only. And he has every right to because Honeybloom is amazing from start to finish.
