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.

Producer/Songwriter Christian Berishaj aka JMSN has been on my radar for as long as I’ve been digging for music. Since I discovered his music in 2012 he’s dropped multiple projects and all of them deliver.

Australian producers Hugo Gruzman and James Lyell come together as the electronic music duo Flight Facilities.
Their first original song just happened to be what pushed them in to the lime light. Crave you, written and performed by Giselle Rosselli. Crave you is a poppy house track about being interested in someone who doesn’t know you exist.

Lips is a girl with giant lips for a head.
New Zealand born and Brooklyn raised Stephanie Brown performs under a mask of bright red lips. Her mysterious wardrobe keeps the focus away from her looks and back to what’s important, the music.

This song includes two people previously introduced on my playlist. Which I try my hardest not to do for the sake of variety. But sometimes rules are meant to be broken. The reason both of these artists are back is because of their exceptional bodies of work. Every project released by them have equally resonated with me in some way or another.

20 Year old Mac Ayres exploded quickly with his first EP “Drive Slow”. As a kid from Sea Cliff, NY. He moved to Boston to attend the Berkeley College of Music. Being around so many different artists allowed him to explore different styles until he found the grove for his EP.
