We’re a music blog with a charitable twist. When you listen to the songs below, we make a donation to charity. Same goes for any song you listen to on our site. That means there’s plenty of music and plenty of love to go around.
Pull yourself out of that static song rut with us by coming back each day for five brand new club/living room/office/car/whenever/wherever bangers. We’re meant to be together.
1“Catch & Release” – Matt Simons
Genre: Light House
Definitely my favorite song lately. It’s a little like Postal Service and a little like Ed Sheeran. The Deepend add a third element that makes this the model Summer kick-back song.
2“Brave” – Amarante
Influenced by bands like Fleet Foxes and Local Natives, L.A. natives Amarante bring out the soft and catchy California charisma with a hint of backwoods spirit. New album Spirit of the Abyss is out now.
3“Caution Cares” – Hayden Calnin
It starts out good, don’t get me wrong. Well — the entire song is low-key whispy perfection. Let’s be real. But the payoff happens around 2:45.
4“Silence Has Left” – Exit Glaciers
Genre: Soft Rock
The four piece from Denton, Texas (along with Wesley Jensen, if you recall) is giving the small town a great musical name. Through a laid-back Fleetwood Mac style comfort, Exit Glaciers completely wrap you in.
5“High Flying Faith” – EZTV
The band Jim James of My Morning Jacket would be in if he weren’t in My Morning Jacket. “High Flying Faith” features Jenny Lewis. EZTV‘s September 30 release High In Place will also feature several other big names. Stay tuned.
