Enjoy it While it’s Fresh: Goldie

  Today TC foolishly decided to challenge me to a couple rounds of Super Smash Bros. so I decided to play through my soundcloud stream while we played.  After a few rounds in which TC never won, Goldie’s “Groovy Life” came on and I honestly thought that it was Chief Keef.  With some autotune and a great knack for writing …

Enjoy it While it’s Fresh: Grand Mariner

Grand Mariner are three dudes from New Jersey that don’t really like the beach that much despite sounding like they were raised on a healthy diet of King of the Beach and Afraid of Heights.  Happy to Birth is a scuzzy EP full of scuzzy surf-punk anthems, but you probably could’ve figured that out from reading the tracklist which includes …

Enjoy it While it’s Fresh: 12 Ghosts

12 Ghosts is the project of Nemo Simulacra, a dude who I know very little about.  His newest (probably not first, but again I really don’t know… I should do my research) release, electric sheep, was just put out by the cool dudes over at Staring at the Ceiling and is definitely one of the coolest and weirdest releases I’ll recommend …

Enjoy it While it’s Fresh: The Sweet Boys

During 2013 I got pretty used to the fact that the majority of indie rock submissions we’d get would be of the lo-fi and emo persuasion.  While I’m still digging a lot of the more emotive releases from last year, it was pretty cool when II dropped out of seemingly nowhere from The Sweet Boys.  On bandcamp, The Sweet Boys …

Enjoy it While it’s Fresh: Frankie Cosmos

I don’t know if I’d call it a conscious move or that the internet is finally reaching a 21st century ideal of post-genre bliss, but the blogosphere has seemed a lot less focused on new sounds and new-buzz-core-genres as of late.  It really doesn’t seem like people are looking for the next new chillwave anymore and it’s honestly pretty nice. …

Enjoy it While it’s Fresh: Eddie Caine

Eddie Caine is a rapper for people who like rap.  Listening through his patron Rita tape it becomes obvious that Caine not only has an incredible talent for telling stories but also holds high regard for hip-hop’s young history.  “Oh, I forgot it’s summertime,” he answers to a twisted Kanye sample on “sumHER”.  The most obvious comparison that Caine will …

Enjoy it While it’s Fresh: Little Pain

In case you didn’t know, we are fans of Sad Boys leader Yung Lean and his brand of emotional rap.  Yung Lean helped us become in tune with our emotions, and Little Pain is taking us to a new plateau of sad rap.  Little Pain doesn’t pop pills he pops tears.  Little Pain smokes while he cries.  Little Pain loves …
