Brittany. Howard. That’s all you need to know. Such power, yet mixed in with soulful control in her voice. You’ve got to stop what you’re doing and give this track a listen.
This early 70’s dream-filled, rock track will make you reminisce on the moments you’ll never forget. Believe me, all you need to do is press play.
English band Free’s “I’m a Mover” is music to my ears, and it’s the track I want to listen to while driving my pony on a stretch of cracked grey highway over green hills.

If 2020 were a woman, this blues-rock track — also called “Woman,” from San Francisco-based band Down Dirty Shake — would undoubtedly make for a more than appropriate theme song.
Don’t be too shocked when I introduce yet another aussie band. You may gasp. I know it’s getting a bit out of hand. At this point my musical garden is beyond fecund with sun kissed flora in the form of Australian born tunes…
What a time to be alive music lovers of the world! I had a profound moment of happiness in mindblowing proportions watching this group of snazzy fellows jam together recently in San Francisco. The band is composed of Dalton Allison, Jake Hirshland, Javi Reyes, Wesley Toledo, Matt Williams and Joe Keery (an inactive contributing member for the foreseeable future)…
Hi, hello and welcome snazzy music lovers. I present to you this week a window into the inner workings of Mild Orange. I am fairly certain they’re cool with it if we just take a quick peek inside. These mellow kiwi fellows have a beautiful ability to share simple words and sounds with a truly relatable and meaningful message to go along with it…
Sundown Syndrome is a seriously underrated song of a now wildly popular band. My 16 year old self was introduced to the genius work of Kevin Parker by a childhood friend from New Zealand. To him I am forever grateful.
I just dig this track big time. I know old school fans of EODM didn’t rate the album highly compared to their previous albums but it just kicks arse for me.
Sad music doesn’t have to bring you down – sometimes a sad song punches you in the gut and leaves you staggering but strangely energized. When you have a lyricist like Craig Finn and a guitar player like Tad Kubler, you get pummeled on many different levels.
For their first new material since 2013’s Reflektor, indie art collective Arcade Fire recruit legendary gospel singer Mavis Staples to present a clear and simple warning to our leaders: I give you power and I can take it away. This is not a threat, Mr Trump. it’s a promise.
If I could have one wish, it would be that this song would start playing as soon as I enter a lucid dream (that beautiful space between waking life and deep slumber when my body is completely relaxed and weightless but I still complete control over my thoughts and movements.)
My optimism and imagination has led to accusations of living with my head in the clouds. I have learned to embrace this as part of my creativity and this song as the anthem.
Blood Orange has been one of my recent favorite artists. His ability to seamlessly blend different styles of music makes for a delightful sound.
Since moving to Phoenix, Arizona, I have been fortunate to meet lots of creative and inspiring people. Saddles is an example of the local talent that motivates me to create. This song is from their newly released album, “ Yoke.”
I was excited when I moved to Tucson, Arizona after attending high school in a Virginia suburb. The desert landscape, colorful homes and alternative music felt so vibrant. Harlem is a garage band that originated in Tucson during this time of my life.
To me, “Painter In Your Pocket” represents the new confidence, views and creations that evolve with experience. I find this song interesting because it shows this growth through the eyes of the past.
