We don’t get to post everything we listen to directly on the site, for various reasons. That doesn’t mean we aren’t keeping our ears to the grapevine though. This month was special with songs from our Beats, Burgers, Frisbee artist, Flamingosis, Angelo Mota, Toro Y Moi, & Fly Anakin (my personal favorite). By no means is this list final, so if you feel like we’re missing out on some tunes, send them this wayyyy. While you’re streaming the playlist, hit that follow button on our Soundcloud to stay ahead of the wave.
The art scene in Baltimore will always have a special place in my heart. I witnessed a large yet close knit community of artistic individuals who expressed themselves however they wanted. It was a cold ass winter weekend of Valentine’s Day touring with Win from Slackgaze and I was welcomed by the likes of Amy Reid of Chiffon and Abdu Ali. Well anyway, I also stopped by the Bell Foundery and was blown away by the presentations and performances of each artist including Elon. Here he collides with Butch Dawson to output some really awesome experimental music. I must return to the DMV to discover more!
I’m still recovering from this weekends Slackfest in Brooklyn, but when I dropped this Wam G. in my speakers I was given new life. It’s my first project experience with the New Jersey native, but it has me questioning why I haven’t been hipped to him yet. The last installment of the series, “Gee.Requisite.Vol3” offers a glimpse into Wam G.’s growth as an artist. The Wam G. you start with grows and matures as the projects progresses; by “My.Gawd” you can sense a shift in his voice. He begins diving into the realities of life and leaves you with a feeling that Wam is on his way up. Take a listen below and check out my favorite tracks.
I really like this guy’s stuff especially “Adult Swim” and The Sky God EP (Side A). Funny enough, I was listening to DaDunDun and his name is listed VIIth.
Yes I know I’m the biggest Jon Bap fan girl ever. The Michigan architect puts together some of the tastiest sounds [DM’s has been on a forever loop] while he simply exudes coolness from his rhymes and nothing seems to be overdone with his execution. 1TL2A or 1 Thing Leads 2 Another, consists of statements feelings, and insecurities he should have expressed at certain times in which he decides to lay ’em out now. Brace yourself on the first track though. The sub-bass and sustained kicks come in real skrong.
“They say, if you really want someone’s attention, you gotta strip naked; Showcasing your insecurities/flaws, all while stroking your ego…”
I feel like I shouldn’t be nice as I type this. I’ve been listening to nothing but the NJ punk-rap duo Ho99o9’s debut EP “HORRORs Of 1999″ since it dropped and honestly… I feel like saying something nice would not be doing the project justice. Talking about the “uncomfortable groaning and discordant noise,” that makes the project so epic would definitely not do it justice. Telling y’all to “listen to this with the lights on…” *insert straight face emoji*
I don’t know what I like more on “Fall Out of Love”, JUMPSWIM‘s playful production or Ninna Lundberg‘s amazing vocals. It’s probably a tie. This is an international connection between London producer duo JUMPSWIM and Denmark folk singer Ninna Lundberg. After I put on my google goggles, I found that this is a remake of Ninna’s indie folk single from 2013 of the same title. The connections don’t stop there with the JUMPSWIM and Ninna linking up last year for “Do for Love“, a beautiful cover of Bobby Caldwell’s “What You Won’t Do For Love” for all the old souls out there. I rarely listen to folk, but this girl can sing!
This weekend (6/19) the Museache squad has the opportunity to showcase a few of our favorite artists at the all weekend SlackFest. Starting on Friday at the Nola, Darling and then finishing up at The Silent Barn in Brooklyn. The lineup features beautiful artists such as Hadassah, Sado-San, Mal Devisa, and of course our specially curated lineup Saturday Night. Now don’t be fooled by the word festival, because this performances will be as intimate a candle lit dinner. Maybe not that close, but you get the picture. You can grab tickets and view the full schedule of what you’ll be in for below. View Full Schedule
