New Bleeders, “Ox Blood”

I’m loving this new angst-y new wave mp3, “Ox Blood.” The New Bleeders are from Belgium and that’s about all you are going to find out about them. I believe they are too busy writing songs that will have you mentally crawling up the walls, and don’t have time to do any sort of PR/Marketing type stuff.

Junior Toots, “Ready To Come Over”

Junior Toots isn’t just a nod to one of the most successful reggae bands; Junior Toots is Toots Hibbert’s son, lead singer and founder of Toots and the Maytals. This is Junior’s first album, and from the sound of it Junior has lifted his genetically programed gift of song writing into the Bob Marley caste. “Ready To Come Over” is a song about the return to the land of King Selassie I, covets all the righteousness of Jah rastafari.

And like any hip young band on the East Coast, they relocated to Brooklyn. “Dimmer” is the opening track from the 2009 album Grrr… and is everything indie rock represents: sweat lyrics, soft acoustics, and hipster accessible.

Dirty raw funk

Do you think 4 white guys from Ohio can’t play funk? Think again cause some of the dirtiest-stripped-down-raw-daddy funk being made today are the product of 4-white dudes from Ohio called The Jive Turkeys. The “B.A. – Single” is beautifully recorded and flawlessly mixed, receiving nods from the who’s-who of the funk world — mainly Wax Poetics. But when you swing as heavy as The Jive Turkeys do, expect the professional recognition reserved only for bands of their caliber.

Supreme Beings Of Leisure, “Never the Same”

Supreme Beings of Leisure’s “Never the Same” is a beautifully crafted mp3 that is groovy, cinematic, and funky, all at the same time. Not to go all Pandora on you, but if you liked Moby’s 1999 album Play, then you’ll love “Never the Same.”

Infernal Overdrive, “Duel”

Brooklyn’s Infernal Overdrive sound as if they were raised on a steady diet of Grand Funk Railroad. Their timing couldn’t be better with Van Halen recently touring and releasing and a new album, the public’s ears are tuned back into the 70’s rock channel. “Duel” is a rambunctious tune with big drums and plenty of power chords – so turn it up!

Kylesa, “Decend Within”

If you are, or you’re aspiring to be a metal head, you know the band Kylesa. Formed in Savannah, GA in 2001, “Descend Within” is from the band’s debut self-titled album. Known for their many interpretations of metal, “Descend Within” was laid down on a day the band felt like stoner-rock and math-rock sound awesome together, and they do.

Punx Soundcheck “Nobody Move” Moves Plenty

Alright, lots of parties around the world today for various reasons. Is there ever a bad reason for a party? Methinks not. Here’s some fun ‘lectronic dance floor spaz material for any occasion. Music deconstructs itself down to molecules and electrons in the hands of today’s laptop wielding sound architects, to give us crispy club jamz like this. I like.

Superbad dupstep!

East Coast dubstep producer Humble Dinosaur takes the vocal sample of “I’m Superbad” from the scene in the movie Superbad when they’re about to cop booze with a fake ID and Mc Fogell is trying to pussy out. Then HD slaps a billowing baseline down. The beat is slowed down to a drunken pace. Then the ‘worrier charge’ is let off in the background. All the ingredients to make an unruly and ominous tune that is sure to satisfy the itch of any dubstep junky.
