If I Were You


Claud is the solo project of Claud Mintz (aka Toast) who happens to be a close friend of Clairo (who I am also a fan of) whom they met when they were both students at Syracuse.

Just a damn good song with a funny as hell video from an artist I've never heard of before.

Brian recommends...



I couldn't find much about the artist, but this song is perfect to mellow out and relax to.

Saw Lightning


A collaboration between Beck and Pharrell.

New to You and Throwbacks

These are some our favorites that are not necessarily new.

Brian recommends...


Cigarettes After Sex

If you haven't heard of Cigarettes After Sex, this is a great way to start. They have an awesome sound reminiscent of Mazzy Star. Start with this song and then I recommend "Crush", a more recent release.

Common People


Not a new band but 100% new to me. I was very familiar with the cover but had never heard the original. The entire album, "Different Class", is really worth your time.

Cerca & Extraño

Entre Rios

Continuing on the Latin alternative theme I've had the past few issues, this is a song from Ely Guerra's third album from 1999. Wait for takes a little while to build, but it's worth it.

Common People

Captain Kirk I mean William Shatner

And now that you've heard the original, you can listen to the cover that you've probably heard a thousand times before.
