High Tide 15:47
And The Bubble Burst

There’s nothing quite like waking up on Friday morning. The sun is shining a little brighter, traffic seems to flow a little easier than usual, and no matter how much work you have lying in front of you, it’s not as daunting knowing that a few days of freedom are right around the bend. This particular Friday has another big, shiny layer added to it, though, as we bring you a first look and listen to this brand new tune from Newcastle six-piece High Tide 15:47.

Within seconds of pressing play, you’ll find yourself completely entranced, helplessly grinning, bobbing your head, and incessantly tapping you foot. These reactions are brought fourth by playful percussion-style vocal harmonies that follow along the beat, providing a lighthearted mood from the start. From there, reverb-drenched guitars come charging in, adding a perfect amount of energy. The cherry on top? Steven Gordon’s psychedelically-treated, hazy vocals, which should have you singing along in no time.

This may be the first time you’re hearing of the lads, but after experiencing support from acts like Primal Sream, Wolf Alice, Eagulls, and countless others, it won’t be long before you’re seeing their name pop up on the regular.

If you’re feeling what Steven Gordon (vocals, guitar), Dan Murray (guitar), Al Charnley (guitar), Nick Hodgson (bass), Gaz Murray (keys) and Cole Gilroy (drums) are laying down, make sure to head out today and pick up this gem on iTunes, or add it to your “Favorites” playlist on Spotify.

Austin Paul X SNDNGCHLLZ X Byrdipop – Binary [TMN PREMIERE]

binary
Binary
Austin Paul X SNDNGCHLLZ X Byrdipop

Miami based Austin Paul, SNDNGCHLLZ, and Byrdipop have come together in a collaborative track that’s absolutely mesmerizing, and they pulled it off in less than 48 hours. What’s even more impressive is the fact that these three haven’t previously worked together. They were partnered up in a celebration of local music by the forthcoming lll Points Festival, which takes place October 7th – 9th, at Mana Wynwood.

This is the the third release on the festival’s 1st compilation, with one more release yet to come in the pack. “Binary,” as they’ve titled it, is a wonderfully sonic listening experience that pulls elements from RnB, ambient electronica, and pure experimental bliss. It only takes a few seconds to lock you in, and once it does, you’ll be wondering where you can get more.

Hopefully this admirable project from lll Points Festival helps inspire these budding artists to work together more, because, quite frankly, we need more.

There are still tickets available, so if you want to see acts like M83, Thievery Corporation, LCD Soundsystem, Method Man and Redman, Black Coffee, Earl Sweatshirt, and close to a hundred more, we highly recommend picking them up now.

Lotus Talks Red Rocks, “Eat the Light,” and Sour Beers from Crooked Stave [EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]

lotus

Lotus is once again adorning legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater with their unparalleled sonic and visual experience, showcasing their brand new album, Eat The Light. If you’re not up to speed on their latest offering, it brings a fresh perspective that hasn’t been seen by fans yet. The entire album, all 10 tracks, feature vocals, something that this storied fivesome has never done before.

Some of those vocalists will even make an appearance this weekend at Red Rocks, including Denver’s Gabe Otto of Pan Astral (“Eats the Light”) and Rachel Eisenstat of Raven Jane (“Suntan”) as well as LA’s Oriel Poole (“Anti-Gravity”). Additionally, fans will get treated to two knockout openers with El Ten Eleven and Tycho, both of which are favorites around TMN HQ.

Before you head out to buy tickets, take a moment to check out our conversation with Luke Miller, the man behind the guitars and keys for Lotus.

TMN: Thanks for taking some time to sit down with us, virtually. We’re excited to see your upcoming show at Red Rocks. Speaking of that show–you guys are no stranger to that venue. Does it lose it’s luster after having played there already? We have to imagine each time is just as incredible as the first.

Lotus: Red Rocks is always breathtaking and inspiring no matter how many times you go there. I think each time we play Red Rocks we get more comfortable with it. The first time is kind of intimidating since it’s such a historic place. But relaxing into the venue and vibe of the crowd there usually begets a better show rather than trying to stress and over-reach.

TMN: For those who’ve been to your shows in the past, what can they expect this go around?

Lotus: Well, last time at Red Rocks we did the Talking Heads De-Constructed. This time, we’re back to a regular Lotus show. So expect the typical Lotus stew of genres and all the jams that go with it. Plus a killer light show, we are rolling out new productions. And we’ve got a few other surprises in store.

[Indie] Flawes – Consolation / Don’t Wait for Me

flawes

At this point, London-based Flawes doesn’t really need much of a push from us. After a “Track of the Week” selection from BBC Radio 1, smashing up Spotify’s Viral Charts, and getting massive air time on Fox’s hit television series “Lie To Me,” the world already has their ears fixated on this impressive up-and-coming band.

The two-track selection we’re offering up below should be more than enough to get your feet wet. In all honesty, you’ll pry dive head in after the first track, much like we did, giving in to larger-than-life nature of both “Consolation” and “Don’t Wait for Me.”

Before you get your suit on, know that these are two massively different tracks, even though they fall into the same neat little box, stylistically. “Consolation” reminds us a little bit of one of our favorite artists, Jack Garratt, showcasing a powerful range of vocals behind artfully crafted basslines, guitar samples, and rhythmic percussion.

Conversely, “Don’t Wait For Me” has a more delicate nature to it, brought forth by digitally treated acoustic guitar riffs. It has an air around it that could easily cross over between a dusty, middle-America saloon, and high-end speakers from the most discerning music snobs.

That’s the beauty in these tunes though – they cross over effortlessly, bringing a massive appeal to those who don’t have their head buried in the music blogosphere and those that do. And, for us, we can’t help but think that’s a recipe for tremendous success.

You can find these two on the bands EPs, Ctrl and Unspkn, which are both out via Red Bull Records.

[Resident Artist(s) of the Month] The Hunna

Album Hero Press Shot

As a person that easily binge watches TV shows, it is easy to get to a point where you have almost seen it all. Or at least, all that appeals your interest. Yet, the minute that you find out the release date of your favorite show’s next season, you suddenly have more purpose in life. Ok, maybe my life is a “little bit” more Netflix-driven than yours, but my point is that finding out when The Hunnaa was releasing their full-length debut, 100, gave me just enough rivaling purpose. Introduced through their lusciously euphoric rock single ‘Bonfire’ back in October 2015, capable of filling rooms with their anthemic rock sound, The UK-based four-piece grabbed our hearts and ears from the very start. Ten months, millions of Spotify streams later and praised Zane Lowe, Annie Mac and Huw Stephens, The Hunna have captured just more than an audience. They are one of the few bands today that can define their own following as a ‘movement’ and 100 further proves their case.

This brings us to why we are incredibly honored to present the next Artist(s) of the month: The Hunna, as their kicking off their debut album this week. Join us this month as we get to know Ryan (Vocals/Guitar), Dan (Lead Guitar), Jermaine (Bass) and Jack (Drums) and their quest to conquer the world (musically).

’You & Me’
’We Could Be’
’Still Got Blood’
’Be Young’
’She’s Casual’
