Austin, TX-based musician DEANO dropped his debut album “Instant Lovers” this week. Showcasing his songwriting and drummer skills, the Music Education major from Rhode Island brings an array tracks on his first album. He’s got a natural jazzy-bluegrass thing going for him that def reps the music scene in Austin. Deano brings home the Texas love featuring other Austin favorites on his album, such as 2012 Austin Music Award Winners for Best New Band, The Wheeler Brothers.
Currently Obsessed With: Trails and Ways
Gah, this band has such a fresh vibe. The indie quartet from Oakland has been making waves in the last year. In 2012 they were one of the Most Blogged About Artists on HypeMachine, gaining popularity for their remixes of songs such as M83’s Midnight City and Animal by Miike Snow. Although their remixes are awesome in their own right, it’s the bands singles such as Nunca, Tereza, and Border Crosser that give you a real feel for what makes their sound so unique. Think indie-samba beats with airy vocals that make for a perfect drive down the PCH during sunset. They’ve yet to release a debut album, but you can check out many of their singles on spotify. We can’t wait to hear what they have coming out next.
Watch Out For: The Wheeler Brothers
Following 2011’s southern home-grown sounding “Portraits”, the five-piece and five time Austin Music Award winners, The Wheeler Brothers, are gearing up to release their second album “Gold Boots Glitter” next month. The Austin-based band has never played a hometown gig that hasn’t sold out, and once you give them a listen you’ll be sure to understand why. Keep an ear open for these guys in 2013 as their music is sure to fill your ears, heart, and soul with feel good vibes.
Video of the Week: Wale Ft. Chinx Drugz & Fatz - Let A N***a Know
Uhhhhhhh nuh nah nuh naaaahhhhh. Skullcandy artist Wale pops off with this single Let A “N***a know ft Chinx Drugz & Fatz. In typical rap video fashion Wale and crew rock the New York street scene accompanied by hoodie-clad entourages, ridiculous cars, and some intensely oversized jewelry. What’s rad about this is Wale somehow reinvented the often cliche vibe of these videos by bringing a very “in-the-now” feel that other rappers can only attempt. Turn your bass up, lean back, and get into it.
