DYLYN 's newest single “Wolf” was just released and is now available to stream and share on Soundcloud/Spotify.
"This song was the aftermath of a shitty breakup and my family divide. It was as if the universe was telling me to rebel and revert to autopilot. Shutting my feelings off for a little while was a much easier way to live - misery loves a hot guy. This new track along with my other recent releases are all authentically me. Writing them was like a therapy session dedicated to the last three years of my life. I wanted to incorporate 80s synth, punk garage style drums to match my deep vocals - mixing the old with the new. It helped pinpoint exactly how I was feeling. Through the breakups, family breakups, the ups and downs - I was able to release songs chronologically synced to the stages of my emotions. The new track "Wolf" is a direct reflection of how I felt about men post-breakup. You become reckless, rebellious and ultimately don't give a shit about other people’s feelings. Watch for my debut EP Sauvignon and a Kimono Feb 23rd!"
The glue that binds it all together is Herman himself, who wrote, recorded, mixed, and played every instrument in this collection. Who is Tom Herman Jr. anyway? A mythic hermit from south Jersey? A well-honed bedroom savant? Listen and let us know. He’s still trying to find out.
Releasing today, Justin Levinson's "I'll Make It In Hollywood" is a beach-y, sugary '60s pop tune. Heavily influenced by The Beatles and Beach Boys, it's a playful number -- though written with a subtle cynical undertone, over-exaggerating the ease of rising to stardom and retiring in Malibu.
"I really wanted to release a bright/ beachy summery track at the beginning of the year," Justin explains. "Like the previous record, we kept a lot of the '60s pop inspired sound... big vocal arrangements, wurly and mellotron. Though the song may appear to be about a fella who is quite confident he's going to hit the big time in Hollywood, there is actually a bit of a subtle cynical undertone. I tried to tap into some of the hardship creatives go through in a lighthearted manner."
Jacob Faurholt is one of Denmark’s most prolific songwriters. He releases music both solo and under the moniker Crystal Shipsss. His music ranges from lo-fi home recordings, 90es inspired indie rock to ambient drone metal.
A Lake of Distortion, Faurholt’s 6th solo album, is a collection of fragile folk songs and fuzzy lo-fi pop carefully sequenced to work as a whole. It consists of 10 twisted love songs filled with joy and anxiety. The album was mainly written, recorded & mixed in Faurholt’s bedroom (in between work and other daily obligations) and the intimacy and urgency from that setting is apparent throughout the album. After recording the basic tracks Faurholt invited musician friends to work on the songs, among others Soren Brothers (Man Meets Bear), William Kudahl (Infants), Claus Frøhlich (Younolovebunny), Samuel Gray (Sam Gray Singing) and Jens Christian Madsen (Tjaere+Fjer). The recorded tracks were exchanged between them by e-mail. The albums short, melodic and fragile songs draws references to Bee Thousand era Guided By Voices, early Sparklehorse, and Daniel Johnston who is namedropped on the albums last song “Listening To Devil Town”.

"Some great Hammond/Wurlitzer-driven contemporary soul rock seasoned with a good dose of humour and vintage flavors by Nashvillian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Robert Ledet. Definitely worth more than a listen!"
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
