Jareth – Rings of Saturn (Submission)

When it’s time to wake up, everything should work with you to make it synonymous with a smooth landing. If there are noises that work against the rhythm of your mind, you might open up your eyes. Right now, it is a few minutes to three in the morning. Everything is still in the house. The streets are quiet. People are resting, alas. Jareth and the sound of her voice will not interrupt anyone whose dreaming [when I am not]. Therefore, that makes me happy. For that reason alone, I’d like for you to check out the British Contemporary R&B singer-songwriter’s latest record, ‘Rings of Saturn’ below.


Heartthrob Chassis – Check You Out (Submission)

Next, comes the emphatically-versed ‘Check You Out’ by Heartthrob Chassis. Short and sweet, the Detroit, Michigan-based Garage Rock band fronted by Margaret Doll Rod sings about checking someone out. Vocally, it reminds me of early female-led Grunge bands from the late eighties to early nineties! The album comes out September 21 on Milan Records. Stay tuned!

Van Bobbi – Kickdrum Heartbeat (Submission)

Everything about ‘Kickdrum Heartbeat’ makes me very happy. Please, Mr Van Bobbi, keep at making music. You have an outstanding spirit, a natural knack for it. If you’re looking to wake up on a good note, our guy from Downtown Los Angeles is one to watch and support. Listen to the record referred to as ‘a spiritual elixir meant to uplift and regenerate the soul’. As he wishes, Van Bobbi’s music is inspiring healthiness and encouraging people to celebrate life, as it is today.


Spirit Award – Supreme Truth (Submission)

Everything about ‘Supreme Truth’ screams a day at the beach with bearded men who like to drink cold brews, back to back. Without going deeper into what that vision is, the musical group encapsulates a vibe that reminds me of bare feet on warm concrete. Hear Spirit Award’s apt record for the morning below. It’s from the Seattle, Washington-based Indie Rock trio’s forthcoming album entitled, ‘Muted Crowd’.

Basement Revolver – Heavy Eyes (Submission)

Continuing that vibe that I mentioned earlier, one of my favourite group’s Basement Revolver, released a new track. Rightfully, it is called ‘Heavy Eyes’. Normally, when one is in a tranquil state, their eyes may be heavy. It’s approaching three-thirty in the morning. My eyes are fighting with my mind, but none of them is winning. Hear the incredible experimental soundscape that is ‘Heavy Eyes’ now.


Zac Ali – 3am $us Boy (Submission) (Bonus)

You know what time it is, so either you’re heading to bed like me, or you are going to wake up to dance to the record. If the person who likes or loves you will only call you during the wee hours, it is said that they are after one thing. Get them out of your life, unless you are using each other for the same thing.
