Was your office as crazy as ours was this week with all these snow storms and snow days?! Either way, we’re finally back on track — and just in time for the weekend! So let’s take a look at the best newbies circling the internet this week.
Mount Eerie takes over the album premieres this week. He’s out with his latest, which is fueled by a plethora of instrumental sounds, made to seemingly texturize the world all around. It’s beautifully whimsical at times, but also filled to the brim with bits of buzzing, noisy Rock. Lots of experimentation going on with this one!
Moving right along to track premieres, and there are a TON. Butch Walker‘s latest features melodic piano over guitar-picking, along with a must-read interview; Torche busts out another ferocious, drum-o-licious Rock treat; Bosq (along with Nicole Willis) goes to Brazil to bring you the Disco beat; Revolution Saints powers up a golden-oldie Rock sound; My Midnight Heart takes you on a shimmering, crescendoing journey of whimsical vocals atop bass drums, and Malik B & Mr. Green team up with Benefit for a classic Hip-Hop vibe. Whew! Now try all those on for size.
That’s all for this week, folks — have a splendid weekend, and Happy Superbowl Sunday!
