Don’t let that picture above fool you, the man behind Brooklyn-based Cassettes Won’t Listen can make some really diverse music.
Listening to shuffle every so often I get to revisit music I gave plenty of listens to awhile back and today, the airy indietronica track, “Waiting,” came through my speakers. I love the light hand-claps, glitchy beats and searing synths. And before the song was nearly finished I was already searching through pages and pages of what the multi-instrumentalist, Jason Drake, was up to next.
Grab “Waiting” below and check out what he’s recently been up to. The Primitive Radio Gods song is absolutely frenetic and a unique take.

Be sure to right-click and enjoy. And if you’re looking for more, check out CWL’s newest project, Dfalt. It’s some grimey sounds.
It’s been gorgeous lately here in Philadelphia. My windows have been wide open for an incredible amount of consecutive days which has only been getting me more and more excited for the summer. There’s something different about that particular season, maybe it’s the dynamic energy.
Anyways, let Country Mice’s track, “Morning Son,” be your anthem for this brilliant morning. It’s a churning folk-rock song with slightly heavy content, and I really dig the psychedelic guitars that make an appearance towards the end. Grab the track below and listen to the rest of their album, Twister.
Morning Son – Country Mice
Right-click and enjoy. Also save the date, May 7th they’ll be in our neck of the woods Philly.
From the explosion of an introduction I knew I’d love the first track I heard from Brooklyn’s The N’ere Do Wells. “Jungle” is one of three demo tracks these four friends have up on their bandcamp site (expect a March completion date) and it’s a whole mix of lo-fi vocals, slamming percussion, and energetic guitar riffs.
Garage rock at its finest, this song deserves the head phones to be removed and the volume turned up. Plus, I can’t hate a band that describes themselves as “back to mono.”

I’ve made the declaration in the past that Brooklyn’s Little Anchor is more or less the epitome of cute.
Perhaps it’s that soft and innocent sounding voice of lead singer Alexa, or maybe it’s those simple pop elements the band seems to so effortlessly create. Whatever the reason, if you happen to find yourself in Philadelphia tonight then a stop at The Fire to catch these guys should be on your agenda.
“Don’t Be Scared To Move” is all about simple feel-good melodies and taking a chance with someone you care about. It’s also the lead-off track on the Yellow Lights 6-track album which they recently released last month. If you like what you hear make sure to visit their bandcamp which is chock-full of catchy folk-pop tunes (one track even shouts out Maryland, swoon).
See you at the show!
You guys, I’m getting MAD excited about Coachella..and that there’s only 10 days left. Now, if only Southwest would get their damn acts together and are able to send me safely to Cali without a hole in the cabin, I may die happy.
All I know is I will be absolutely MIA for this one. Trying to figure out logistically how to navigate the sea of concert-goers and manage to hang onto at least one person I’ll be there with..ah, that’s probably not going to happen. It’s all about the experience anyways..even if there are some SERIOUS stage conflicts, I shall not fret. I’m there to have a good time and see some incredible acts.
So, introducing my Coachella sampler. Within the past couple of months I’ve peppered posts with artists that are going to be playing, but now it’s getting down to the nitty-gritty. The next 10 days will be focused solely on the festival, k?
As always, right-click and save.
Ratatat – Guitar, meet your new friend synthesizer. These two Brooklynites know how to create somecrazy, mind-altering electronic tunes that I used to love weirding all of my friends out to.
Delorean – Quite an eclectic group coming all the way from across the Atlantic. They’re a mix of club beats along with some indie-rock, one of the hottest bands coming out of Spain today. I predict they will put on an amazing show.
Glasser – Meet female singer-songwriter, Cameron Mesirow, who’s blazing her own “Bjork-styled”
trail. She’s one of those acts you can’t exactly put your finger on but you know she’s talented and you know you love it. Plus her dad’s one of the guys in the Blue Man Group. Sweet.
