.Mosh – McQueen

ODDS ARE, YOU HAVEN’T HEARD OF “.MOSH”. Well thats all about to change. Adam Bignell, aka “.Mosh”, hailing from

Edmonton, Canada, has put up his initial album on Bandcamp. The album, titled “Monarchy” has a bunch of killer tracks, but for

this post, we are featuring “McQueen”. Perfect name for a tune that makes me feel like I’m cruising in the 80′s. The track is a sick

blend of funk, electro, and some rock. If you’re into Boys Noize, you’ll definitely dig this tune. Also be sure to check out his whole

album on Bandcamp. It is featured as a “name your price”, meaning $0.00-$1,000,000.00. Whatever your heart desires. Check

Sicker Than Your Average – uMaNg & Kick Back

YOU LIKE 90′s HIP-HOP? Then this jam is for you. Much of the rap music that comes out today is sugar

coated & dipped in honey. This tune is straight from the heart, you can really feel uMaNg’s emotions in this tune. In fact, you

can hear it throughout his entire “The First Impression LP”, which can be found on Bandcamp. uMaNg, or Umang Khosla,

which is his real name, moved from the East Coast to Utah, where he is based now. He managed to have his first LP “The First

Impression” featured in the Salt Lake Tribune. If you’ve heard this song before, its for damn good reason. If you haven’t listened

to uMaNg before, you better start right about now, cuz this guy has some of the freshest hip-hop I’ve heard in a while.

Youngblood Hawke-We Come Running(RAC Remix)

20121113-youngbloodhawke-600-1352837622

REMIX ARTIST COLLECTIVE just recently put out this groovy remix of Youngblood Hawkes single “We Come Running”. This is certainly one of the dancier mixes that RAC has done for a project.

THERES MORE! RAC was featured on Rolling Stones,regarding their newly created Hawke remix. Check out what they had to say about the artist collective’s recent work”

“‘We Come Running’ is a song about facing and conquering your fears.  It’s a reminder to always follow your passion, even if it’s seems, at times, impossible. It started as an internal message to the rest of the band and grew into something much larger and universal,” Youngblood Hawke’s Sam Martin tellsRolling Stone. “The song was written in the early stages of the band when we weren’t sure where our music our lives were headed. We went through so much in our personal lives while we were writing this record and sometimes it felt like nothing was ever going to get better. It was a reminder to for ourselves to keep putting our heart and soul into making music, because it’s really the only thing that keeps us going.”

Earl Sweatshirt “Chum”

171715

HIS FIRST SOLO since his official return back to the world of rap. Earl Sweatshirt brings us “Chum”, a track that presents more of Earl’s inside mind explaining his appreciation for his mom and how he misses his father “like when I was six”. The beat is nothing far from an in-house odd future wave… wobbly low pass bass and a looped piano riff. It’s an emotional song that will most likely turn up on Earl’s upcoming album tracklisting.

New Local Natives Single “Breakers”//Talk of New Album

OB-GD17H-001.pdf

THE INDIE ROCK BAND based in Silver Lake, CA, has released a single titled ‘Breakers’, planned to be released along with Local Native’s upcoming album “Hummingbird”, set to be released January 28th of 2013!

Breakers doesn’t stray far from the long track list of songs recorded by Local Natives. It’s a psychedelic clash of  electronic synth soloing, live recorded playful claps, and the mastered, uniquely magical sound that these artists never fail to present to it’s listeners.

 

A Bit of Their Past:

Their debut album, Gorilla Manor, was first released in the UK in November 2009, and later released in the US on February 16, 2010. The album received mostly positive reviews and debuted in the Billboard 200 and at No. 3 in the New Artist Chart. The Local Natives were at many times mentioned to be a “band with magical powers.”

Their sound has been described as “afropop-influenced guitars with hyperactive drumming and hooky three-part harmonies”.Clash Music has also described their style as pysch folk, or modern worldly folk.

DDV EXCLUSIVE: Cherokee – American Spirit EP//STREAM IT HERE

artworks-000032231029-t4x9fq-original

 

FRENCH DISCO DUO CHEROKEE brings us a newly released EP ‘American Spirit’

What to say about this?….YOU NEED TO LISTEN!

HANA YORI KICHOU NA and Darius (both form Cherokee) put together one of FUNKIEST..SEXIEST..MOST

Authentic compilation of French Disco I have heard in a while!! A combination of vocal slicing, breakbeat

authenticity, and the classic groovy waves that these French Producers keep flowin in their tracks. The sound of Cherokee is very

similar to producers SebastiAn, Shook, and Classixx. It’s the type of music that liberating

and sexy , serenading your ear drums with Shmoozy French Romanticism. You will not be disappointed.

When will Cherokee come to the US? They’ve done a mini tour and played at the Social AID and Pleasure

Club…but that is simply not enough. They’re popular everywhere in Europe it seems…why can’t you just come over

to the States and perform? Maybe DD Vinyl will have to do something about that ;]

 

Anyways, these producers are great and you can stream the EP ‘American Spirit’ below via Soundcloud! Listen Listen!

BREAKFAST “SUN/MOON” Album

sunn

 

IT HAS BEEN HARD WORK IN THE STUDIO these past 2 years for the newly risen Los Angeles band Breakfast,

who released their debut album “Sun/Moon” this past week. The 15 track album is anything but a single, pin

pointed genre. It is a collaborative clash of aethereal vocal soloings by lead female singer Andrea Adolph; new

electronic drum kicks and daunting synth arpeggiators by producer Sean Dwyer; the wonderfully positive and up

lifting, folkish vocals of Max Bussell and Luciano Russo.

 

 

IT IS AN ERIE SOUND, yet it can be mistaken for a summer album? It is a wonder as to how these artists managed

to pull of an album, filled of so many emotions and struggles, and have it all sound so in sync and in touch with

itself and the overall  flow of the album. Listening to the song such as “The Final Ending”(lyrics by Max Bussell):

its a track  that is such an uplifting, empowering track.  The most beautiful piece on the album  ”Valsa Triste”, is a

song that has such a powerful, mysterious pull on human emotion. Listening to ” Valsa Triste” for the first time, it

is as if one’s mind focuses in on the saddened, beautiful past that each of us all hold within. Songs like these make

the album “Sun/Moon” a musical masterpiece.

ALL IN ALL, it is an absolutely beautiful work of art. “Sun/Moon”, as an album, defines the skill and the ethic that

these artists all hold and share, promising a great future for Breakfast. Stay tuned with more Breakfast music and

updates by visiting their website at:  www.wearebreakfast.com
