Pense Bem – Manoel Tosto

There’s always a special feeling when I listen to Manoel Tosto’s music, it speaks to me about how life could be, I feel like I could really use some more of that kind of energy in my life.

Broad Rock – Butcher Brown

The latest from #KingButch is a tactful type of funk. The grasp on their own sound is evident.

Summer Nights – Noah Rosen (ft. Alex Jones, Joe Newton, Tommy & Danny Ferdon)

A creation of lively instrumental abundance. The act of speaking through sound without the boundaries or barriers confined within the walls of words. A universal feeling induced only by pure instrumentation to awaken the sounds of the soul…

clarity – vivaellipsis, har:low

March into the Sea – Pelican

If you’re looking for a sad song this week I’m sorry but you’re shit out of luck.  If however you’re looking to get to grips with your grief, maybe take it out and show it what you think of it – this might be the perfect track.
