FROTH OF THE DAY: JAY SOM – THE BUS SONG

Are you like me? Do you like listening to Elliott Smith and Alex G and spending the night questioning every aspect of your life? In that case, let me introduce you to Jay Som. Hailing from Oakland, she is creating introspective pop with a real purpose and her latest single, ’The Bus Song’, is a refined and thorough example of ‘guitar music’. It’s a beaut mix of lo-fi guitar layering (with plenty of those beautiful romanticised tones to kick you into a pit of self-examination) and bright harmonies, bursting with positive vibes. The result is dreamy and blissful, with just the slightest nod to something heavier (I suspect we’ll see that a bit later). And although there is enough emotion and poetic dialogue to match the visionaries I opened with, Jay Som writes songs with a genuine air of happiness. It’s nice, and believe me, we need more nice music.

Jay Som’s debut LP, Everybody Works, is out March 10 via Polyvinyl.

FROTH OF THE DAY: SAMPHA ‘(NO ONE KNOWS ME) LIKE THE PIANO’

You will struggle to find anyone else that can break you down and make you feel ‘real things’ as well as Sampha can. The London based multi-talented and multifaceted young artist is on the brink of taking the world by storm, and if you think I’m a being a tad over zealous, then you need to listen to his latest single ‘(No One Knows Me) Like The Piano’. The third taste of his debut LP, Process, the track is a gorgeous stripped back self-reflection. Acting as a dedication to his late mother, Sampha is only backed by his own keywork (and a very subtle beat). Although he’s no stranger to laying it out there, this seems to one of the most honest moments Sampha has allowed us in on. And it’s reflected by his soulful vocals and spacious soundscape. A deeply personal and honest insight into his life, one that captivates immediately and refuses to let you walk away. I’m not crying, YOU’RE CRYING.

GREEN BUZZARD RELEASE NEW SINGLE ‘DO YOU EVER GLOW?’

15203332_1333581256660732_8218696816050322932_n

‘Do You Ever Glow?’ is the first single to be taken from a forthcoming EP. Recorded and mixed by Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett, DZ Deathrays), this single and forthcoming EP sees Green Buzzard really step things up a notch sonically… this new found production allows Paddy Harrowsmith’s pop sensibility to shine through in a way which it has yet to do. Speaking of the song, Harrowsmith had the following to offer: “Ayeeee… gather round wee children, let me tell you a tale from a looong looong time agooo. A time of myth and legend, where dragons soared high above and a song, of great power, was first sung . I was there, one of the few to hear it, and it goes a little like this….”

We are beyond thrilled with proceedings from the 2016 ARIA awards, which saw Mansfield’s Violent Soho take home the awards for Best Rock Album for WACO along with Best Group.

FROTH OF THE DAY: SOHN – CONRAD

14195378_1112498565503576_2694485703275344765_o

English musician/songwriter/producer SOHN is back with a brooding new single, ‘Conrad’. The second lifted from his long awaited follow-up to debut LP Tremors, the single seamlessly blends organic percussion and sweeping synthesizers with SOHN’s sultry vocals. The progression from his earlier work is apparent from the production not only alone – he ventures far beyond the borders set for him by his first record. The result between this and the formerly released ‘Signals’ is a delight of rhythmic textures and bold new sounds, a statement of intent which suggests there’s something indeed very special on the horizon come January.

JACK RIVER SHARES OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR ‘PALO ALTO’

14495416_1241793442517618_8205998210313523928_n

Jack River has today revealed the hazy visuals to ‘Palo Alto’, the lead single taken from her debut EP Highway Songs No. 2 (out now via I Oh You). The beautiful yet gritty video for ‘Palo Alto’ which premiered overnight via DIY, was shot in the back of a 1985 Ford Bronco and directed by Holly Rankin (aka Jack River) and friends in and around L.A.

Rankin explains its concept: “From the minute the song began to come together, in my mind I saw hazed out afternoon light and everyday suburbia out the window. That golden feeling of looking back through hazed summer light on something you can’t let go of yet.”

The footage that bends around the in-car shots came from different places and times – similar to how Rankin made the song. “We bought a late ’90s DV cam, and some old footage of someone’s holiday was still on there, it felt the perfect distant memory so we added it in,” she begins. “Some of the footage was shot in my hometown, this little coastal town four hours from Sydney – my friends and I decked out an old drive through with disco lights and filmed it.”
