Formerly a side project of Menomena co-creator Brent Knopf, Ramona Falls has become the indie stylist’s current mainstay. Named after a waterfall near Mt. Hood, Ramona Falls creates the same stir of emotion Menomena does, but with a deeper, fuller sound. It sounds like Brent Knopf took his Menomena sound and met up with some of the guys from As Tall As Lions. As ambient, moody, and quirky as ever, Ramona Falls swells and swirls evoking a sense of serenity akin to that of the ocean. Check out the track “The Space Between Lightning and Thunder” off their 2012 album Prophet below. Read More…

Yoni Wolf is known by many names. Why?, cLOUDDEAD, and Doseone are just a few of the acts that Wolf has attached his name to. The California-born alternative hip-hop purveyor has been known for making folk and indie rock-tinged hip-hop since 2004. Why? boasts a general eerie feeling, while mixing in inventive beats, imaginative lyrics, and Yoni Wolf’s trademark, Interpol-esque vocal twang. Four albums and three EPs in eight years (not to mention releases by his other projects) proves that Yoni Wolf is a busy man, and we’re all to gain from it. Check out the track “The Vowels, pt. Two” off their 2008 release Alopecia below. Read More…
