GoldenWest update *4 new super-future songs!

June 16th, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop, Rock |

GoldenWest is one of those super-future bands that are on their way to mainstream attention. If you are not following them on facebook and twitter yet, I highly recommend you do so as they have been on a free-track binge, giving the world dope new tracks about almost weekly. GoldenWest is also the owner of our most-commented blog post as they sampled one of my favorite Bibio tracks in “Lovers Name”.

Out of the last 6 or 7 tracks they have released since May, there’s four which I am a big fan of. Get more of their music off their website.
GoldenWest – Live Forever
GoldenWest – Don’t Stop (Sun Drop)
GoldenWest – Fuck You, I’m From California
GoldenWest – Smoke Makes Love

After the jump, watch this compilation video of all the best (and worst) parts of California but mostly Los Angeles. (more…)

Best You Never Heard II: Fall/Winter edition

December 30th, 2010 by | Alternative/Indie, Before Bigs Exclusive, Daily Mix, Dance, Hip-Hop/Rap, Mashup, Pop, R&B, Remix, Rock |

It’s that time of the year where we would like to give back. Sometimes I feel we don’t give back to our readers enough and we are working to fix that in 2011. Until then, here’s a mixtape we created.

It’s called Best You Never Heard II, which is a mixtape showcasing some of the best up-and-coming talent in music from the last several months. It’s a collection of 20 songs of mostly hip-hop with a little bit of rock, pop, R&B and mashups/remixes (much like our site’s content).

Listen to the mixtape below, and download through mediafire.

GoldenWest – Black.Gold

December 22nd, 2010 by | Alternative/Indie, Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop, Rock |

GoldenWest, a band I still have mixed feelings over even though they got a good alternative hip-hop/rock thing going on that I always love. But still on the fence and I think “Black.Gold” should give you a more positive impression of them.

Goldenwest – Lovers’ Names

October 26th, 2010 by | Alternative/Indie, Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop, R&B |

Sometimes I find a band that busts onto the scene with some very good songs but they only have a few released and I just want more.

Goldenwest is from Los Angeles, has a unique alternative sound I can’t really put a genre label onto except some indie, hip-hop, R&B and a little pop.

Goldenwest – Lovers’ Names

Update: Been getting a lot of comments on this track because I learned Goldenwest sampled Bibio’s “Lovers’ Carvings” in the majority of the above song.
