New Single: “Breathe” – Mammals

I’ve already shared my love of ambient music with my recent review of Sohn’s latest album; it’s great for focusing on work since the lyrics are gracefully folded in to the music, the rhythmic patterns are relaxing, and you just get an all around good feeling from it. This latest release from Mammals is absolutely beautiful and hits just the right spots: it’s peaceful, masterfully crafted, and leaves you wanting more as soon as the track ends.

New Single: “Believer” – Imagine Dragons

HOLY SHIIIIIIT this new single from Imagine Dragons, you guys.

Even though there’s a plethora of folksy artists out there, it’s always a pleasure to discover someone new with a unique sound that fits well in the genre without...

Chatting About Influences, Spotify, and More With KNGDAVD

Do you ever hear a song that just makes you stop in your tracks? That was me the first time I heard “Poppies” by KNGDAVD; it was catchy, the beats were unlike anything else I was listening to, and from the very first notes I wanted to know more and wanted to know who was behind the music that immediately sucked me in. I already mentioned that these guys were worth keeping an eye on in 2017, but today I’m unbelievably happy to say that I got a chance to chat with the boys and share that interview with...
