[Indie/Hip-Hop] Ash Riser – Ghosts LP

If there was only one project you could listen to all week, make it Ghosts by Ash Riser. For one, it’s packed with seventeen tracks, so you’re sure to get your fill, along with some variety. Secondly, it’s an extraordinary project that only Ash has the ability to put together.

As you might guess from an album called Ghosts, the mood overall is quite haunting and dark. Ash has already established himself as a unique creator, but with this LP he cements an undeniable pillar deep in the ground and high in the air for everyone to see that he is a must know artist. He kicks up some hip-hop, but his indie sound doesn’t hold him to any one genre throughout the project. Ghosts isn’t something that should really be analyzed as it speaks for itself in a way that is unrivaled. If you’d like a copy, hit up the digital service of your choice to get it.

[Indie Dance] Phil Good – I Miss You

I Miss You

If Phil Good ever stopped making music, we’d miss him. We’d miss him so much in fact, we’d go outside the window of his house and sing his new song “I Miss You” despite being utterly atrocious singers. Hopefully we don’t have to do that and we can leave the singing to Phil.

“I Miss You” is Phil’s best track yet, which is saying a lot given his powerful, but still small catalog. His indie-pop meets electronic sound is just what the radio needs; a genuinely good song that wasn’t made specifically with the radio in mind. It feels like an indie track, but it’s so much more than that. Phil always manages to keep his sights on the underground while managing to release works that have crazy potential. Only time will tell just how high Phil can go, but we’re philling good about him… okay bye now, just listen to “I Miss You” and enjoy.

Tansu – These Things [TMN DEBUT PREMIERE]

These Things (SINGLE)

It’s Friday, which means you probably need a healthy groove to help escort you into a (hopefully) lengthy holiday weekend. My suggestion? How about some big, driving kick drums, pronounced claps, and some eye-opening vocals from a stellar new act?

If you’re nodding your head in approval, which, I fully expect you are, it’s probably time you press play and get a proper introduction to Tansu. With a bigger-than-life vocal presence, this brand new indie pop act could easily shake up the the scene.

Another shiny, shimmering product of the illustrious Berklee College of Music, Turkish-born, London-raised Tansu is everything we love about pop, without what makes us cringe. Hand-crafted lyrics, carefully poured over with production from LITTLE PLANET MUSIC aka Dave Rublin (American Authors) are true, heartfelt, and easy to get into to. At times, it has calls on associations of monster acts, mainly X Ambassadors and Lorde, yet it comes without the army of a major label, which is damn impressive.

Keep your eyes and ears open for more from Tansu. We have a feeling that you’ll be hearing more and more about her very soon.
