HIP PREMIERE – DJ REAL: DON’T DANCE ON MY BABY

  Today we have an exclusive from San Francisco’s DJ REAL (Nick Stargu) called “Don’t Dance On My Baby”. The track is from his upcoming album “They’ll Say Yes” and is a lively, Zappa-esque, tongue-in-cheek track about the rave culture (though, Nick admits, he has never attended one). The lyrical content is worth putting the […]

THE PARROTS: No Me Gustas, Te Quiero

  To start the week off, I have a new one from The Parrots. The track is a mellow, droning track that you would never guess comes from a band in Madrid. Its laid-back vibe has a sexy swagger that can get a bit hypnotic through the fuzzed out, retro ambiance. The allure of the […]

Coast Modern: Guru

  I absolutely love this band. If you have not given the last track “Animals” a spin, I suggest you do so here. Their newest track, “Guru”, snuck through the cracks but once I gave it a listen I had to share it. It has a wonderfully spacey and delicious tropical groove with lyrics that […]
