The Philly-based rock band Free Energy, who previously dropped that infectious 2010 hit “Bang Pop,” is prepped to release their sophomore album Love Sign. The second single off it, “Hangin,” is a great little funky-rock song with a sound that’s reminiscent of the 90’s. It is almost impossible for me to listen to “Hangin” without thinking about bands like Spin Doctors. Even if it’s not “magical,” I got to say that the track is a great preview of their new material. Pop-Rock fans, you can now hold on to your chairs, Free Energy are poised to release something good, something real good.
Love Sign will be out on January 15 via DFA Records. For further information, visit their official site.
Another huge release for Seven Lions, the Santa Barbara producer that is becoming bigger by the minute. Taking one step back from the constant “the louder the better” approach currently in the dubstep scene, Seven Lion remixes Delerium’s ‘Days Turn Into Nights’ with its soothing vocals and inspiring crescendos oozing with a distinctive electro progressive sound. The track is being sold exclusively on beatport and you can stream it below.

With a crazy amount of remixes of this song, it is easy to dust this off to the side. Yet Brazilian producer Chrizz Luvly has been able to inject enough electronic aggression to bring this classic back to life. It may not be the most original rendition but we have been impressed with Chrizz Luvly production ever since the release of his original track ‘Demon‘. You can go to his soundcloud to listen to all his recent remixes we strongly approve.

Austin you never cease to surprise us. Blurring the lines between bickering Americana and indie pop, local band The Lennings have risen from Austin music scene through their melodically rich instrumentation of acoustic guitar and banjos and with the captivating vocals of lead singer Jason Lemming (a.k.a. Jason Jinyma). Their style provides a window into a world of harmonics and genuine lyrics proclaiming to focus on “finding the beauty and absurdity in the mundane and inanimate.”, which they do. Last fall, their cover of “You’re The Only That I Want” (by Grease) made its way to the big screen featured on the NBC show Parenthood last fall. And just last night’, their soft and powerful single ‘B-12′ from the upcoming album Inside will also appear on MTV’s “Underemployed” this Saturday (12/8) night at 8/7PM Central

Oh Terravita, what have you gone and done? This one is a game-changer for sure. So here’s the brief of what’s about to go down once you hit play. You’ll be greeted with a funky jam of bass guitar and drums and instantly groove to this fresh approach from these dubstep specialists. Enter the build and the unleashing of raw bass force that you craved since you spied the name of the artist in this post.

Who would’ve thought Beach House‘s “Silver Soul” would be sampled twice in the same year? The Inglewood rapper even makes reference to the sample within the context of the song, as he brags about his “beach house.” Shawn Chrystopher‘s “Who Mad” basically serves up a giant middle finger to all his haters, with fellow SoCal emcee, Buddy, doing some smack talking of his own . According to Shawn Chrys, this track is only a warmup for his upcoming lovestory LP, dropping on February 12th. Had this come out a month earlier, it could’ve served as a victory anthem for the president in a tightly contested electoral race.
