Mating Ritual: "Thief"

Mating Ritual is the work of Ryan Marshall Lawhon from the bands Pacific Air, and KOKO.  With that in mind, not only is "Thief" a bit different from the rest of the project but it's boldly different from his previous work.  The song comes from the upcoming album How You Gonna Stop It?, and the melancholy vibe is a huge part of the appeal.  "Thief" appeared on the television series How To Get Away With Murder, building anticipation for the release. 

The album is out on June 9th on Lawhon's own label Smooth Jaws, preorder it here.

Yellow Claw's track "Open" comes from their new album Los Amsterdam.  This one features the production duo Moksi and Dutch vocalist Jonna Fraser.  Fraser's voice is all over the radio in the Netherlands, but with the studio session with Yellow Claw for what became the song "Open" he released his first song in english.  "Open" is one of the dopest tracks on Los Amsterdam but it's putting popular Dutch music front and center for a global audience.  In listening to you not only discover a great track, but a brilliant voice that you may not have heard before...
