Flobots- Gonna Be Free

Denver based rock & hip hop group, Flobots, released a new single to their sophomore album Circle In The Square.  The new album is supposed to have some catchy anthems on it like their debut Fight With Tools did, while still attempting to create a new sound for the band.  I’m really looking forward to the new…

The YesGoodMusic Summer Chill Playlist

Anthony covered The YesGoodMusic Summer Party Playlist pretty nicely and I was having a lazy Thursday, so I thought why not create a YesGoodMusic Summer Chill Playlist.  I compiled a couple of my favorite current laid back songs to make this 18 track playlist.  The list features tracks from The xx, A$AP Rocky, Cris Cab,…

Asher Roth – Good Morning View

As promised Asher unleashed this new jam similar to “Outside” in its summer feel.

Bon Iver- “Towers” Music Video

Grammy-winning indie band Bon Iver just released a music video for “Towers”, one of my favorites off their sophomore album. As CoS pointed out, the main character seems to be taken from the cover of Led Zeppelin IV, which I thought was really cool. I love seeing new indie bands paying homage to the classics.
