T.E.E.D is back with the new song 'Leave A Light On'

In unexpected, yet welcome news Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs has returned with his first new release in some time.  'Leave A Light On' is a new single, and it's quite unlike anything we've heard from T.E.E.D. before.  This song is a raw, emotional journey, from its quiet, intimate beginning to it's booming crescendo and beyond.  T.E.E.D. returns with something refreshing that somehow feels brand new and familiar at the same time.  Does this mean there's more new music coming from T.E.E.D.?  We sure hope so...

Tom Misch on NPR's Tiny Desk Concert

From the first moments of his Tiny Desk Concert it's clear there's something special about Tom Misch.  He and his band bring three songs to NPR's legendary series, 2 from this years Geographyand 1 from the 2016 release Reverie.  The band opens with 'It Runs Through Me', the song from his latest release that features hip hop legends De La Soul.  'I Wish' follows, and they return to Geography for the finale 'Movie'.  Where Tom Misch first got attention making up tempo beats, his sound has evolved into this soul influenced gem you'll witness here.

VIDEO: DJ Muggs & Meyhem Lauren 'Frozen Angels'


Meyhem Lauren and DJ Muggs are at it again, this time they've dropped the Frozen Angels EP, an 8 song record where this unstoppable duo do what they do best.  They've also released the video for the title track, and it is a perfect fit for so many reasons.  It's rugged effects match the grimy sound, much like the clips of the harpist that combine the visual with the audio impeccably in a way where it compliments the edgy side of the track.  The same balance is seen in the setting for the video, from the ornately designed churches to the streets outside.  This is a glimpse at their heavyweight new record, you need to hear it for yourselves.

Tennyson Performs 'Uh Oh' Live w/ Miguel Atwood-Ferguson & his Band


 Tennyson collaborated with Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and his band to perform this new, vibrant, larger than life rendition of 'Uh Oh!'.  The unexpected performance took place at the legendary Valentine Studios in Los Angeles.  This is a brilliant follow up to Tennyson's Uh Oh! EP, including the brilliant 'Cry Bird' video.  It's one of many notable collaborations that Atwood-Ferguson has embarked upon leading up to his 2018 solo album release on Brainfeeder.  The setting seems to lend some magic to this song, the studio started by former Capitol Records engineer Jimmy Valentine in what had previously been a dentist office.  Play this one loud, you won't regret it.
