A friend of mine sent me over this track and I have to admit, I’m really digging it. Her name is Laura Jean Anderson and she’s got an amazing voice, great music and she is cute as hell. Expect big thing from her in 2016 and remember where you heard her first.
I am a new fan of this emerging LA based band DreamVacation. Their stunning new self-titled EP sweeps you away with a brooding melodic power and hard-edged yet atmospheric guitars behind lead singer Ray Silva’s emotional vocals. Check out the debut single “Window Room” below.

Heard this new song today by The Slightlys and can’t get it out of my head. “Desperate Measures” is a timeless indie rock anthem reminiscent of Foster the People and the Killers.

Lately I have been enjoying the new single from Ted Z and the Wranglers. The four piece, deliver outlaw americana-charged rock. Ted’s catchy story-songs are fully-realized tales of love, regret, getting older, and getting in trouble. I dig the Americana tunes, featuring quick picking and bluesy slide guitar over beats and swinging shuffles. In the span of a few years, Ted Z and the Wranglers have become one of Southern California’s most compelling and sought after Americana roots musical collectives. Take a listen.
Put aside 12 hours and find a comfortable place to sit, because these 12 albums will just suck you in and not let you go. No fillers, just song after song of musical bliss. Rest that skip button finger and enjoy the ride!
