Yesterday, a fairly obscure group of friends from DC, named Spektrem, released their newest song “All Too Soon”. The track itself is incredible, especially for a collective that has been around for about a year with only a handful of songs under its belt. It has a tremendous prog house rhythm with great vocals incorporated. From start to finish, it sounds like a classic progressive house song that you would hear blaring in a club, and hopefully it soon will be. Spektrem has set the bar high with “All Too Soon.” So be sure to check this one out.
As dark and mysterious as Purity Ring‘s music is, it makes surprisingly good material for a remix. That’s exactly what New York based rapper T.Shirt does on this mixtape, grabbing bits and pieces from Purity Ring’s excellent debut album, Shrines, and adding some mellow bars of his own. T.Shirt doesn’t miss a beat on this project, matching each unique note with perfect rhythm. He even switches his style multiple times throughout, showcasing his diverse skillset as an emcee and his ability to adapt easily to changes within the flow of the music. While T.Shirt doesn’t remix the album track by track, he does bring together an awesome 15-minute blend that shows exactly the type of music these two forces could create should they choose to collaborate sometime in the future. For now, we can only hope for more.
Los Angeles based indie rockers Bear Attack met at a Popular Music Course at USC, and decided to start playing together after being backup musicians for other various Southern California bands. After they formed, they created their first EP Shapes, which features the song below. “The Backpack Song” is a soft, inviting, and endearing track. Between the gorgeous vocal harmonies and the classical piano, this is one that’s perfect for a lazy Sunday with your lover.
These guys are playing with one of our all time favorites, Lady Danville, at the On the Rise Concert Series this Thursday. If we could, we would definitely be there. Since we can’t, you should attend and let us know how it goes.
Today has been an incredible day for music, and it just got even better thanks to the Santa Barbra natives, Candyland. They are back to their filthy ways, this time tackling the Stafford Brothers track “Pressure”. These two just get it, starting with a intense intro that grabs you instantly. Then slowly building it up with the vocals that are meshed flawlessly with this insane melody. The drop is just brain scrambling Dubstep at itsΒ absoluteΒ finest. Featuring some hard hitting laser infused wobbles that make me want to two step around my room by myself. Look forward to their album dropping, hopefully soon, can’t get enough from these two. And best of all this remix is free, Cheers.

If you were lucky enough to be one of the 120,000 people in attendance, then you get to relive a small part of what must have been a life-changing weekend. For those of us who couldn’t make it out to Belgium this summer, the next 20 minutes will truly be extraordinary. You are about to be transported to the most theatric and stunning festival this world very well may have to offer. The main stage itself has so much detail to it, not to mention just the sheer magnitude of it. One wet, wild, and crazy dance extravaganza is waiting for you next summer, all you have to do is skip over the little pond to Europe. Easy, right?
While watching this video, you’ll get goosebumps and probably grow pretty envious, it’s only natural. My biggest hope for everyone reading this is that you get to experience a festival of this caliber at some point in your life. Enjoy, ninjas!
The new video for “I Will Wait” is absolutely stunning, full of breathtaking views of both Mumford & Sons and the rapturous crowd at Colorado’s beautiful outdoor Red Rocks Amphiteatre. The song itself is a slice of well-crafted poignancy, and the video, directed by FRED&NICK, only heightens its emotional breadth. It’s brilliantly shot, giving an intimate, close-up look at the band’s performance, while also showing just how far the English folk group has come β there are literally swaths of people completely overcome by the song. Honestly, seeing that large mass of fans clapping and jumping around ecstatically gave me chills. It’s true what they say, music really has the power to inspire and move.
Below is the recorded version of “I Will Wait”. Mumford & Sons new album Babel comes out September 24th on Glassnote.
