Friend sent this to me with the caption: “they’re a bunch of stoner 17 year olds.” With respect to my own sense of nostalgia, I really like what these kids are doing. Here’s a stream of their latest release, which happens to be self-titled. I’m shitfaced and I am not sorry. Fuck all of you. I know a kid named Grant, he’s Jewish.
Update: Grant is apparently a 16-year-old producer from Florida. Are you from Miami? Miami is the shit it’s mad dirty but you’ll get fucked the fuck up
I wanna go on an L ride past the Eiffel Tower too…

More auditory hypnosis from Columbus, Ohio’s Monster Rally. “Honey” is the lead single from his upcoming album Beyond the Sea, due out June 19th.

Good to see something other than hardcore coming out of my hometown and getting recognition. WaMoo Papez is Juan Alvarez, who is from NYC but is currently attending UAlcoholbany (seriously, spend one night there and tell me how much you remember). Either way, Alvarez’ stock in trade is dreamy, IDM influenced instrumental hip-hop. Definitely worth a listen.
New album from “Philadelphia’s premier Bat Mitzvah and Quincenera party band” this summer! Hoping that “Coral Gables” is an indication of how it’ll sound. Work Drugs make glo-fi really accessible, so I’ve got my money on this new album turning their current buzz into a dull roar. In the meantime, you can head over to their Bandcamp and see what else they have to offer (it’s all pretty great).
