Chances are you are struggling to get going this morning. Whether it was from all the drinking you had to do in order to make last night's Superbowl watchable or because you were huffing paint down on the corner with the bums again, you probably need something to ease you back into this week like an old man into a nice warm bath. Lucky for you, The Lumineers felt that this was the appropriate time to release a new song off of their forthcoming sophomore album Cleopatra, and it has everything you need and more. The new track "Ophelia" comes on soft and tickles your eardrums with some soothing piano which leads directly into those tranquil harmonies that we've all come to love from this trio out of Denver, Colorado. New album is due out April 8th...

This new track from Bronze Radio Return popped up on Spotify the other day when I was listening to a few random playlists I came across and needless to say, I like it a lot. It's just such an incredibly upbeat song that you find yourself anxiously waiting for the song to be over just so you can hit the repeat button again. Fun fact about this sextet out of Hartford, Connecticut: The name Bronze Radio Return was inspired by an old radio that lead singer Chris Henderson grew up listening to in his fathers art studio in Maine. The band now likes to think that the music they create pays homage to the music they grew up listening to. Pretty neat stuff, huh? "Light Me Up" is the lead single off of the band's newly released album of the same name...

If movies have taught me anything, it is that zombies love to dance. So if you ever find yourself in a situation where you are surrounded by zombies and have no way out, you may as well arm yourself with the only defense that has ever been proven to work. A kickass zombie apocalypse music playlist. Seriously, just blast this shit as loud as possible and within seconds all those crip-walking dead fuckers will bust out some beautifully choreographed dance moves that will leave you in awe. It will be at that moment when you can decide whether to flee or join in, but the choice seems obvious to me. Seeing as how you will be safe unless the music stops, you should hop in line and do the dance of the living dead with those brain-eating bastards...

So you're looking for a chill new song that will perfectly describe your current situation in the most relaxing way possible? Well look no further, cause Snakehips is picking up what you're putting down with their unbelievably laid back weekend anthem "All My Friends". With the combination of the silky smooth vocals of Tinashe, Chance the Rapper's toned down bars and a ridiculously catchy hook, I have a feeling that "All My Friends" will be digging this new jam real soon. Song is available for download through the iTunes link below.

I used to have a nightlight when I was a kid. It was shaped like the front of a train and stuck out of the socket in the wall shining light everywhere. Silversun Pickups also have a "Nightlight", although if I had known about their type of nightlight when I was a kid I probably would've never fallen asleep. Know what I'm saying? Yeah me neither. New album Better Nature drops September 25th...

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.
