spill your guts
I’m always excited to see a new project from the genre-bending artist Dream Beach. It’s been about a month since the Detroit-based artist’s last release and he’s back with a new one. I remember being introduced to this producer when his track “drove my car into the ocean“ got some well deserved attention. I highly recommend that you check out that song as well as the myriad of other refined tracks Dream Beach has released in the past. You never quite know what you’re going to get from this musician but all of his creations seem to be rebelliously different while still completing their specific musical ideas.
The new song is called “Spill Your Guts” and it definitely fulfills my high expectations. It has an alternative vocal melody backed by some creative electronic production. Stream the new single here and discover the fresh sound that is Dream Beach.
The musical world was meant to be explored. But truth be told, some of us are way more adventurous than others. So, if you have a hard time being the Indian Jones of the internet, don’t you worry your pretty little ears. We are the master ninjas of all musical exploration. We’ll do all the work and put together a little playlist for you, right here, once a week, every week. You’re welcome.
’Argonaut&wasp – The Sneeze’
’Silences – There’s A Wolf’
’James Hoffman – To Hear You Again’
’Ruby The RabbitFoot – Ways’
’Henri Bardot – Make You Love Me’
Today marks an unorthodox holiday, and it’s one of our favorites because we get to celebrate a group of people that are responsible for the existence of a few things: ourselves just to name one, but fantastic music, as well. Today is International Women’s Day, and here at TMN we’re not bringing you some $4.95 Hallmark e-card; we’re bringing you an homage to the wonderfully talented females of the world who have made significant contributions to music in the form of a TMN super-playlist, encompassing genres of all kinds, from indie-rock to house, old and new. We’re bringing you everything from Grimes to HAIM, and we think this playlist encapsulates a wide array of musical talents that everyone ought to have on their radar.
So, while you’re listening to this playlist, take some time to shout out to the women in your life who’ve made this awesome existence possible through their perseverance and passion because – seriously folks, it can be rough out there sometimes. We love you, women! Thank you for doing what you do.
Now let’s celebrate with a good old fashioned dance party.

Usually, we try to bring you a healthy amount of backstory on budding new artists. Today is not that day. We have absolutely nothing to share with you in regards to WEIRDO, other than that they’re brand new, wildly addictive, and a perfect addition to your upcoming warm weather playlists.
“Butter” is the first tune from this brand-spanking-new act, and it’s rife with an undeniably quirky charm. The synths and playful guitar work create a fun-loving soundscape, which perfectly carry lyrics that are all-too-easy to pick up. Trust us, you’ll be singing along after only a few listens through.
Take a gander above, then head over to WEIRDO’s facebook page and throw them a like. We’re pretty sure you’ll be hearing more from them soon.
As we begin to finally shake the last remaining traces of winter, Summer Heart comes in the clutch with a brand new single to complement the shifting seasons. “The Forbidden” is the type of tune that will perfectly soundtrack your first beach trip of the season with a wave of warm synths coupled with an inherently hopeful tone throughout. Summer Heart delivers a sound that exhibits a sense of escapism defined by the warm weather ahead and shows just how much a little bit of sunshine, whether from his music or the sun itself, can instantly improve your day.
There’s not shortage of solace to be obtained in this Swedish native’s discography so far, and “The Forbidden” builds upon his strong foundation in a calm and collected manner. With an EP on the way and performances at SXSW scheduled, Summer Heart shows no signs of slowing down his prolific nature any time soon. Give yourself some time to lounge and enjoy his latest effort above.
It’s no secret that we’ve grown very close with and fond of our friends at Red Bull Sound Select. Truly one of the few major corporations involved in music putting their influence to good use, the amazing curators, thinkers, and artists involved with RBSS have always had their ears to the streets towards burgeoning artists across a plethora of genres; inciting within us Ninjas a need to see each and every one of their eclectic showcases near our respective hometowns. In the past few years alone in this writer’s fair (and Superbowl defending champion) city of Denver, we’ve been privy to some of our favorite acts including The Internet, (the artists formerly known as) Viet Cong, Shigeto & Cloud Nothings; and with that, we’ve already come up on another tastefully crafted night of music provided by the RBSS crew. We’ve been excited as ever since first hearing rumblings about this one a while back, and finally on 3/31, Seattle based producer SANGO will make his way to the Mile High City to headline a night of top-to-bottom heat, which will also see performances from SPZRKT (Spazzy Rocket), and CRL CRRLL (Carl Carrell).
In anticipation of the next Denver stop for Red Bull Sound Select, we’ve put together a mini-playlist featuring selections from each artist on the night’s bill. As with every RBSS show, an early RSVP will get you in for the measly price of $3, so hop to it here and get there early to guarantee your spot. We’ll see you on the floor.
’SANGO – Life Without God Is Nothing’
’SPZRKT – Hesitate ft. MaSAXgo (prod. by Tyshane)’
’CRL CRRLL – Get It Together’
