Hundreds: “Ten Headed Beast”

Hundreds new video for “Ten Headed Beast” is colorful and beautifully imagined, but the main reason why I’m posting it here is because I can’t stop listening to the song itself.

“Ten Headed Beast” is off the album Aftermath.

Joseph

Today in bands that need way more recognition comes Joseph, a sister trio out of the Pacific Northwest (actually, a small town named Joseph in eastern Oregon.) I’d be happy for them coming from such a beautiful place if it meant they’d still tour on this side of the country, but from the looks of […]

Diagrams: “Phantom Power”

Tunng has been one of my favorite bands over the last several years, and former member Sam Genders is creating equally delightful pop under a new name, Diagrams. Diagrams actually released a debut EP in 2012, but he has a new album, Chromatics, coming out on Full Time Hobby in January and just […]

New Mansions on the Moon album

Since I usually don’t post on the weekends, it would be wise to give you more music on Fridays. Lucky for us, Mansions on the Moon just released their new s/t album, and it’s thoroughly impressive. They use their softer acoustic skills more this time around (which we knew they already had from […]

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 […]

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 […]
