Macklemore – Thrift Store

Macklemore was already one of my favorite hip-hop artist of the moment, but well I think he might just have been promoted to numer two, after Chill Bump of course. This video is hilarious, this is exactly what you see if you turn on MTV. Mainstream just got taken down by an independent artist. I can’t wait to see the video for American.

Chill Bump

At the beginning of summer, I did a post about Chill Bump. At the time I had only listened to their Hidden String EP thinking that I would listen to the rest later. Well, I never got to it and completely forgot about them. Today, a friend to whom I had gave the EP earlier, brought them up and made me listen to their other stuff. Gotta say, thank you. Chill Bump deserves way more than just one post. So far they have released five EP (available for free), apparently all this year. These guys have something to say, listen to the lyrics of each song, you might realize a thing or two. Here are my favorite songs, I highly recommend to get this discography.

Reminder

Yes, three more summery songs for you guys. If I were you, I would head over to our Summer Playlist to enjoy it one last time before summer runs out. School is creeping up on us and before you know it the playlist will be gone. Don’t worry, the other ones will stay. If you are smart enough, you might even be able to track it down through the abyss of the internet.

Willis Earl Beal – Acousmatic Sorcery

Willes Earl Beal. Have you ever heard this name anywhere ? Probably not, he released an album in 2012 that went pretty unnoticed, at least for this side of the world. Get ready to have your breath taken by this young man. His voice his incredibly amazing, plus he’s got some style, like he said it himself : “its less about the fact that i’m good, but more about how you do it. Its about style, people like style, if you’ve got style then they’re more willing to be on your side, they’re more willing to believe“. Watch the video below to get an idea of what the character is all about. Personally, this alone seduced me.

Daydream (Noah Hyde Remix) – Youth Lagoon

Do you remember Youth Lagoon? If not, check out this post because it’s definitely worth your time. Anyway, Noah Hyde remixed Daydream and gave it a brand new spin. Not as good as the original, but maybe this version will get you hooked on Youth Lagoon.

Sunday Chill

It’s sunday, I think you know what’s coming. Yes, we are going to chill, and there is nothing more satisfying than chilling to some good tunes. You know I’m right, so give these three songs a chance while you try to rest. Sunday nights aren’t good for anything else anyway.

Summer Goes On

I’m back. I just finished going through hours of music and I found a few tracks worthy of your attention. Well, I know you’ve been waiting for a new post for a while now so I won’t try to think about cleverly things to say and I’ll cut straight to the chase. Today, I’ve got three summery tracks to remind you that the bikini season isn’t over yet. Enjoy while it lasts. Also, head over to our headquarter page for an awesome video of the last song.

Robotic Pirate Monkey

Robotic Pirate Monkey is an electronic trio from Denver, Colorado. I was first introduced to them by Wise when their first EP came out. Today, they released a new one. I decided to bring one of their new sons along with older ones. I’m pretty sure that these guys didn’t make it across the ocean. Hera are the tunes. Also, I won’t be posting for a week, I’m going on a road trip to Cornwall. More tunes when I get back.

200

Tonight we reach an other milestone with our 200th post. We can proudly say that we have featured more than 500 songs since our beginning back in October. Whereas most music blog focus on quantity and new content, we concentrate our efforts on quality. We are not doing this for the money or the fame (if that’s even a thing), as you probably saw, there are no adds on this website and we intend to keep it this way as long as we can. We are here to open your ears to the wonderful outskirts of the music industry, to introduce you to unknown chef d’oeuvres and more importantly to help you chill after an long day in this much too busy world of ours. We are doing this because we love music, after all, we couldn’t live without it. All right, maybe we could but life would be horribly borring. Don’t worry, we won’t let that happen to you. We will always bring you more swells of exquisite music.
