Hailing from Birmingham, AL St. Paul and the Broken Bones are bad to the bone. This boy can sing, and it's impossible not to get swept up in how good he does it. Unfortunately all they have released is an EP to date, but keep an eye on this talented group. Big things are coming.

Thank You Scientist has a very unique yet strangely familiar sound. It's like every band I absolutely loved in 9th grade suddenly formed a supergroup. They effortlessly bounce around from tight ska horns to emo-punk choruses to hardcore-like breakdowns. With songs averaging well over five minutes each, you never know where Thank You Scientist is going to take you. Check out "Feed The Horses" from their newest album Maps Of Non-Existent Places below. Welcome to your new guilty pleasure.
Like Hip-hop? How about weed? Well my friend this album is for you! Amen For Weed/ Hi-Life is a FREE album over at Bandcamp is a collection of Copenhagen artists expressing their love of the sticky icky. Take a nice sample hit below. It's pretty dope! (Look I made a pun!)
The UK based indie singer Daughter has finally dropped her debut full length album. If there is one thing to be said about Daughter, it's that she has been consistently brilliant with her previous releases. Here's hoping that If You Leave is a continuation of that hot streak. I think it's a safe bet.
What better song for the official start of the summer than a song about the ice cream man? Hailing from Vancouver, Five Alarm Funk is a high energy ska/funk band whose sound is just plain fun. Here for your viewing pleasure is their newest track/video "We All Scream".
Illiam B Gates just completed a tour of South Africa in September (their spring) for an amazing festival. He ended up writing an (upcoming) EP with Sibot, PH Fat, Jam Jarr and a few other amazing humans.
Youngsta and Gates were both feeling fresh and kicked out a summer jam we call Orange Sky. This one is all good times and good friends, so it's our pleasure to share it with you.
Turn the system up and let's roll...
Much love from ill.Gates, Youngsta and the Cape Town Studio Crew
Instead of trying to come up with my own description of what this thing is it's better to simply let this thing explain itself. Just know that it is awesome and that you should check it out.
"This is an algorithmically-generated map of the musical genre-space.
Genres and artists are positioned by code and data, adjusting for
legibility, but the underlying vectors are less interesting that the
juxtaposition and clusters that they produce, so the axes have been
deliberately left unlabeled and uncalibrated. You are invited to
imagine your own qualities and magnitudes that the geometry might
be expressing. I may occasionally spin the axes just to see what happens.

JENI aka Jenny Suk is a rising star on the YouTube front. Not only does she have quite the vocal range, but her production chops are pretty tight too. Here is her cover of SBTRKT's "Wildfire (fet. Little Dragon)" with some Drake thrown in for good measure. Keep an eye on this one.
It could be said that I have a soft spot for really good songwriters, especially those ones who can make a song with brutally realistic yet whimsical lyrics. Dad Rocks! falls right into that category. Their single "Funployment" is one that tells of life and career choices in a light, humorous fashion that I think most people can relate to. Not to mention they have an amazing band name.
With the absence of Jai Paul from the music scene over the past year, sometimes the best a fan can do is get a fresh take on a favorite track. Producer Filip Filipi has taken the wheel on that front with his remix of "Jasmine (Demo)". It's a nice track that stays true to the source material while adding in some hip-hop vocals. Here's to (hopefully) the triumphant return of Jai Paul.

Maximum Hedrum is the name of the band which, most notably, consists of New York based producer/dj Sam Spiegel and Sepultura lead singer Derrick Green. The fusion of New York experimental electronica with Brazilian heavy metal has fostered form a funky futuristic sound that is very much their own. The video listed below is for one of my favorites called "Synthesize" off their self titled album.
