Coasts: “Wash Away”

The fourth (and fifth) Coasts song I get to post on Knox Road? My am I lucky. More of the standard Coasts euphoria, which they’re somehow able to provide on every song they make. Not an easy feat, my friends!

Bonus:

The 4 song EP, with the title track above, is out via [...]

Brave Shores: “Dancing Underwater”

Start your weekend with this rollicking new jam from Jay and Stefanie McCarrol, the brother/sister duo Brave Shores, off their new EP out October 28.

Bonus:

Faux Fix

This is how music discovery should work. I hear a great track by a well-established artist and it happens to feature a relative unknown with whom I begin to fall in love. Such a love story happened yesterday, when I posted Son Lux’s “No Fate Awaits Me” featuring vocals by Faux Fix. Well [...]

[MP3] Son Lux: “No Fate Awaits Me” (feat. Faux Fix)

This is one doozy of a new song from Son Lux, aka Ryan Lott, off the Original Score & Songs Inspired By The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby, for the movie which, if you can’t tell by the title of the album, Son Lux scored. So many commas. This track, “No Fate Awaits Me,” featuring [...]

Wilder Maker: “Hope Springs”

He’s growing tired. His energy isn’t where it used to be. He thinks about what he was doing 2 years ago; 5 years ago; 10 years ago. Times were happier then, werent they? But even then, he used to think about how much better things were going to be in 10 years, 5 [...]

Charlotte McCafferty: “The Messenger”

Charlotte McCafferty is a student at the University of Maryland (maybe now you’ll understand the Knox Road name if you didn’t already) and whenever I get a chance to highlight our alma mater’s talent, I don’t hesitate. McCafferty is working on a solo album of original songs, and from the sound of her first [...]

Benjamin Shaw: “You & Me”

The sun is setting earlier these days. Autumn is just around the corner. I always dread summer’s end, but there’s an acute nostalgia that comes with shorter days and longer nights. The cold brings memories of a different time in life. Of carpools and afterschool sports and spin the bottle. Of sitting in [...]

Leitbur releases new single “Heartsink” as cancer fundraiser

Sometimes everything gets a bit too real. Emotions shift, materialism becomes non-existent, and life is put into perspective. Jaron Widman, one half of the LA Leitbur duo, was producing a new album when he received his diagnosis. Bills piled up, but he stuck it out, and he’s here today, doing what he loves, [...]

S/T new album from SOS out today

The killer new album from SOS is out today, but you may be surprised I’m posting it on Knox Road. I’m not typically one to write much about R&B, but this sophomore effort is engaging me in an unexpected way. The production is the clear stand out here, blurring the lines (yikes, no [...]
