THE END (sort of)


Greetings readers, you probably noticed that the blog has been pretty dead the past three months or so. It's my fault. No excuses.

Reason being: I realized that running this blog has become somewhat of a chore. 

From when I started this blog back in 2011 I set out with the intention to have a cool, aesthetically pleasing, and fun place to share music I was listening to and uncovering. And now at the very start of 2015 I can safely say that I accomplished all of that. However, with more responsibilities in life and having less and less free time, I have been slacking on making blog posts and I knew in my heart it was time to call it quits. 

You guys have been awesome and provided me with such a great experience and given me a shit ton of likes on Facebook, followed me on twitter, kept up to date with me on Hypem, and emailed me like crazy. 

I have gotten to communicate and help some amazing musicians and I'll always remember this experience. 

THANK YOU ALL. SERIOUSLY. 

R.I.P. Not Final (2011-2015)

BUT WAIT...

It's not all over! I can't stop sharing music with people, so I made a simpler, straight to the point, easier to manage blog called Shrtcuts. I urge you to go check it out and keep following me in my endeavors! <3

OVRLKD: The Walters - I Love You So


It's time for the second OVRLKD post here on the blog because I definitely missed out on something very important last month. Towards the tail end of September a track entitled "I Love You So" was released on bandcamp by 'five regular hunks from Chicago' who called themselves The Walters. I didn't catch on to the musical act until a week or so ago thanks to a friend, but since then I've been hooked like it's nobody's business. A soft intro progressively builds into a full-fledged powerhouse of a song with soothing guitars and drums that help to stabilize the floating lyrics that are melancholic yet charming. Put simply: this song is like candy and I can't get enough, the chorus feels so good that you never want it to stop. With only this one song under their belt at the moment, I can't wait to hear the rest of Songs For Dads when it's released in mid-November via their bandcamp. Hats off to these guys.

Communions - So Long Sun


Danish quartet Communions have come out with a new single that sounds like a long lost track from the 80's indie scene. "So Long Sun" is anthemic and dreamy; growing into a colorful echo chamber of synths, tight guitar riffs, and lofty vocals. These guys know their stuff. Look for the So Long Sun/Love Stands Still single when it's released in November on Tough Love Records.

Andy Stott - Violence


Massive new tune from Andy Stott off of his upcoming album Faith In Strangers. The track "Violence" is dark, heavy, and sprawling; taking its time to make sure you feel and hear every distant echo and booming electronic sound. I imagine that this is what would play as a skyscraper is collapsing. Hear the rest of the album when it's released on November 18th via Modern Love.
