Stream: “Wilder” by Holmsey *laid back summer vibes

June 13th, 2017 by | Ambient, Chill/Jam/Reggae |

“Wilder” is the debut track from 18-year-old Australian musician Holmsey. Inspired by Australian bedroom producer turned sensation Flume, Mitchel Holmes (aka Holmsey) began developing his own signature sound determined to follow in the footsteps of his idol. Mitchell’s first original track “Wilder” instantly gained traction within numerous Youtube and Soundcloud tastemakers. “Wilder” was inspired by summer and is best consumed during calm warm summer nights.

Stream “Wilder” below.

Vampire Weekend new album in 2017?

June 12th, 2017 by | Alternative/Indie |

I’ve been hearing rumors that Vampire Weekend will be releasing a new record in 2017 as they’ve inked a deal with Columbia Records recently. Lead singer Ezra Koenig gave an update to Pitchfork in regards to this, saying the album is tentatively titled Mitsubishi Macchiato. This would be the band’s fourth album and first without Rostam Batmanglij, who has done fantastic work with Hamilton + Rostam, I just love the song, “A 1000 Times”.

Vampire Weekend are anticipated to follow up on the success of their first three albums, with the release of Mitsubishi Macchiato later this year. I can’t wait to hear anything new from VW, I just love this band and the eclectic sounds each of their previous releases have provided.

In the meantime, watch Vampire Weekend perform “Unbelievers” on SNL back in 2013. (more…)
