Download: DWNTWN – Til Tomorrow *indie rock/pop

March 6th, 2014 by | Alternative/Indie, Electropop, Rock |

For a chilled out indie electro rock pop experience and different from their previous releases in that the drums just kick so well, “Til Tomorrow” is the latest release from LA trio DWNTWN. “Til Tomorrow” is laid back and fun, can sway to it and the vocals are a new experience with both Robert and Jamie both singing almost alternating with the vocals in an interesting way.

Stream “Til Tomorrow”, which is the first single off the forthcoming DWNTWN EP coming out end of April.

October 10th, 2013 by | Alternative/Indie, Music Video, Pop, Rock |

A band that’s about to become huge is Basic Vacation, especially when their EP comes out next Tuesday (October 15)! The New York City/Philly indie rock band recently got signed to Capital Records, CAA is doing their booking and big things will be on the horizon for them!

Watch the new video to their single, “I Believe” which is a fun pop-rock anthem that will catapult this group to what I’m hoping for is a national tour starting in 2014.


Tate Tucker – Go It Alone ft. Beck *indie/hip-hop

July 30th, 2012 by | Alternative/Indie, Chill/Jam/Reggae, Hip-Hop/Rap |

“Go It Alone” is the first single off Tate Tucker‘s next project, indie/hip-hop EP WEST/RIDGE. The track is produced by P.D. (a former Trumpet player in the Long Beach State Orchestra) and features a sample from Tate’s favorite Beck song “Go It  Alone”. The video is shot all over Los Angeles including Venice Beach and Santa Monica where Tate was raised.

Not only do I dig the production on this track but the video brings out the song’s chill vibes. Not sure if I dig the song’s message that much but I love how chill this song is as Tate Tucker is probably one of the most underrated up-and-coming rappers in the game, plus he goes to school so I have much respect for a musician that does school and music at the same time.

Stream and DOWNLOAD Tate Tucker‘s “Go It Alone”.

Watch “Go It Alone” below. (more…)
