Benny Benassi’s songs have undoubtedly inspired millions across the globe. From hard hitting, energetic tracks like “Satisfaction,” to uplifting vocal tracks like “Cinema” and “Paradise,” you won’t have to look long and hard to find someone who holds a track from this storied artist near and dear to their heart. Yet, as much as we associate our own musical journies with our favorite tracks, we often forget that artists are the exact same way. Songs throughout their upbringing and career inspired them and continued to influence their art, just as they have for us.

With that in mind, we wanted to ask our Resident Artist for ten songs that inspired him at some point in his life. From new wave, to disco, to progressive house, Benny dialed up an eclectic collection for your listening enjoyment.

Weakdays

Looking at the foreboding winter months quickly approaching on our calendars can be easy to do, especially considering that we’re already nearly halfway through August. Yet, we still have a few solid weekends that could be filled with plenty of warm-weather adventures, and Massachusetts-born, Oakland-based Grumpus has another addition to those accompanying playlists.

Dropping on his upcoming album, Sequestrian, “Weakdays” highlights the endearing indie pop qualities you’ll come to know and love from this budding young artist. Set to the backdrop of lazy strumming, the tune is defined by the unique and addictive vocal tone and lasting lyrics from solo member Graham Stevenson. It’ll squeeze perfectly in between both uplifting indie rock tracks and calming folk tunes, coming together in perfect harmony for that last road trip, camping excursion, or laid-back night on your back porch.

Make sure to follow Grumpus on Facebook to keep up to date with his upcoming releases and live shows.

Sloes – Young [TMN PREMIERE]

Sloes
Young

Sometimes it takes a little added inspiration to craft something truly worthwhile. It could come from reading a completely engrossing book, feverishly turning page after page as the clock seemingly ticks at an alarming pace. It could come from an epic adventure somewhere far, far across the globe, giving you that much-needed perspective that you had previously lacked. For London-based five-piece Sloes, it was the latter, and what resulted after was something you’ll want to be a part of.

This quintet originally started as a duo, with members Jerome and Jo songwriting as they traveled through Columbia. From there, piece-by-piece, others joined in, including Paul, Luke, and Katie–Jo’s little sister. Today’s premiere, “Young,” showcases the breadth of their collective talents.

Vocally, Jerome’s powerful tone and cadence instantly hooks you in. Things only grow more enveloping, as Katie comes in on accentuating harmonies, giving a glowing counter balance. The structure is intelligently crafted, harnessing elements of classic folk strings, clean guitar work, and rolling hi-hat hits that maintain a highly engaging energy throughout.

This is more than likely the first time you’re hearing about this act, but we can assure you it won’t be the last. Make sure to follow them on Facebook to keep up with future shows, releases, and general musings.

LIVE DATES:
Jul 31st, Sidmouth Fringe Sessions, Devon
Aug 3rd, BBC London Introducing Sessions at The Scoop, Southbank
Aug 27th, Stroud Fringe, Gloucestershire
Aug 30th, Old Street Records, London
Sep, 17th, City Square live at The Etihad Stadium, Manchester

Kid Bloom – Lately It Feels Alright [TMN PREMIERE]

Kid Bloom
Lately It Feels Alright

California five-piece Kid Bloom certainly knows how to pull on my 90s music-loving heart strings. Maybe it’s the casual vocal cadence that beckons back on acts like Beck or Cake. Maybe it’s the crunchy power chords that give me joyful flashbacks to start-to-finish listening sessions Weezer’s Blue album. Yet, as much as we hear influences from that era, we also catch plenty of modern vibes from some of their techniques, which call on associations of one of our personal favorites, Tame Impala. Either way, elements from both decades are coming together seamlessly, leaving us grinning ear-to-ear.

“Lately It Feels Alright” is the third single from their debut EP, A Different State of Mind, following up the release of the title track, and “Electric U.” Guitar driven in nature, it presents a wonderful collection of both psychedelic riffs and foot-tapping, distorted chords. Those dueling styles provide the perfect backdrop for the nonchalant vocal style, giving way to an immensely enjoyable 3-minute ride.

If you happen to be in the SoCal area this Friday, we highly recommend heading to the Soda Bar in San Diego to catch their opening set for T.O.L.D. If you’re anywhere else in the world, just make sure to follow these cats on Facebook to keep tabs on upcoming news.
