Bristol, England’s Fuck Buttons have finally released their first album in almost five years. The whacked out electronic duo create drone-y, experimental music along the lines of Tobacco. While the live show may not be something to gawk at (trust me, it’s not), it does make for some good, fun, and generally strange dance music. If they’re playing a festival you’re going to, check ‘em out. If not for the music then for the people watching. Check out their track “The Red Wing” off their new album Slow Focus below. Read More…
British music producer Matthew Barnes, better known as Forest Swords, makes the kind of downtempo electronic music that you can get lost in for hours.

His choppy, computerized vocals soar and gently carry you from the beginning of the song to the end. Though typically slow to build, it is the peaks and troughs of his music that create such emotionality and expression. Check out the first single off of his debut full-length Engravings (out August 26th) below. Read More…

The Brooklyn-based five-piece make fun, poppy, groove-based rock music that you may have to actively stop yourself from dancing to. The kicker? They’re in high school. Hell, the drummer isn’t even there yet. He’s still in middle school. While the shock value of young musicians may have declined over the past few years, there is still something to be said about a bunch of teens who clearly understand rock and funk and didn’t start a One Direction cover band. Check out a live take of their track “Killer” below. Read More…
