Heard this one playing during a commercial on spotify earlier and figured I might as well post about it before I hear it 900 times. Yeah that's right, I'm too cheap to pay for spotify premium. What do you think you are better than me!? SON OF A BITCH!!! Get me a drink. Anywho, I think it's safe to say that Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats (great name by the way) will be popping up all over the place if you haven't heard of them already. Check out this extremely catchy tune below and grab their new Self-Titled debut album which is available now.

I came across "Calendar" by Treelines earlier today while listening to an Indie-Rock/Alternative Compilation made by Alexrainbird, and I haven't been able to get this song out of my head since. To be honest, it wasn't even fair. When the song opened with an acoustic guitar and a harmonica I was already hooked. By the time the stomping and clapping started, I was already opening my wallet. And when the trombone mixed in beautifully with the the tamborine, my pants were around my ankles I was in bliss. Stream the track below from this Indie Folk trio out of Vancouver who have been described as "unintentionally Canadian", and check out some more of their music over at their bandcamp page.

Heard this soulful tune playing at the end of the latest episode of Power and it definitely grew on me quickly. It started off pretty slow and subtle, but as the song went on I found myself more and more enthralled with this unbelievably talented blues musician. "Your Love Will Blow Me Away When Your Heart Aches" won't be winning any awards for shortest song title any time soon, but if Son Little keeps hitting tunes with these powerful vocals I think we'll be hearing a lot more of his name very soon...

Heard this one playing at the end of the last episode of Ray Donovan and thought to myself, I don't remember this My Morning Jacket song. Well that's because I was wrong, sort of. Since unbeknownst to me, Jim James (lead singer of MMJ) apparently messed around a did a solo project a few years back. So now it looks like I have to go and listen to his Regions of Light and Sound of God album, which is kind of like finding that hidden track when you just finished listening to a great album. Check out "State of the Art (A.E.I.O.U.)" below and zone on out into oblivion...

Perfect tune for a Throwback Thursday here. I just got done watching Southland Tales and I gotta ask, why has no one ever told me about this film? I've never heard of it before, but it is a B-listers wet dream. I'll be honest, one of the more entertaining parts of the film is seeing all of the familiar actors who show up in every scene, and you're just kind of sitting there the whole movie going, holy shit, I can't believe that chick is in this movie. It's a good watch if your bored or zoned out, and don't ruin it by looking anything up about this film beforehand. But yeah, when the credits rolled, "Tender" by Blur kicked in and it reminded me of simpler times...

Let's be honest, the weekend officially starts on Thursday. Unless you're an alcoholic, then the weekend never really ends. Haha, ha, hmmm. Anywho, FIDLAR just released a new video for a more upbeat version of their familiar jam "West Coast" and it has everything you need to kick the weekend into gear. I'm talking booze, girls, tattoos and just all out debauchery, not to mention a pretty kickass sound that will get your feet moving right when the distorted guitar riff gets going. This new song will be featured on their forthcoming second album Too due out September 4th. Also, the band is making a second video for this track that will be completely made by the fans as a thank you for their support. Head on over to their website for more details. Digging the "Bro Hymn" vibe in the beginning of the video too...

Just heard this track playing in the background while I was watching the latest episode of Mr. Robot where Eliot was going through his trippy dream sequence while he was doped out on heroin, and had to stop what I was doing to find out who was singing this perfectly tripped-out tune. Turns out it is the song "Queen" by Perfume Genius, and what a perfect track it was. Check it out below and be sure and listen to the rest of their album Too Bright. I know that is the first thing I'm gonna do tonight...
