Sales – Vow

This is a new two-piece that’s been putting out singles somewhat randomly all year. Their songs remind me slightly of Real Estate if they had a cutesy, low-toned, female vocalist. This band, SALES, just finished a tour on the east coast – some dates with Gems and Hundred Waters. Hopefully they tour more and put out a full length soon because I can’t get enough of these singles. They’re superb for relaxing and reflecting in the summertime. Check out “Renee” and “Chinese New Year” if you want to hear more smooth songs from these chill cats.

VIDEO PREMIERE: Andrew Jackson Jihad Feature

Sean Bonnette, singer/guitarist of Andrew Jackson Jihad, came to the WDBM studio to talk about his songwriting as well as perform a song for us. If you’ve ever wanted to know a bit more about this folk-punk band, their frontman has some interesting things to say.

Ben Frost – Nolan

Ben Frost is a lot of things and boring is not one of them. Recently he released a brand new album called Aurora that features a lot of experimental instrumental music. This song Nolan is perfect for so many reasons, one being the fact that this song is broken down into many different segments that makes it seem like you’re listening to multiple songs. This is perfect headphone music, once it encloses you in its grasp it grabs a hold of you and takes you to a whole different world of music.
