Song Premiere: TRASHCLUB, “Dusty Midnight”

Evan Andree and Travis Bunn never expected to form TRASHCLUB. The two met by chance in Los Angeles, where they’d separately relocated—drummer Bunn from Arizona, and singer/guitarist Andree from Atlanta—to try their hand at songwriting and producing. The two hit it off instantly, ended up playing each other some tracks they were working on, and decided to link up the following week to make some music together. … Continue reading Song Premiere: TRASHCLUB, “Dusty Midnight”

Brahm Shares Single “Lobotronix”

On January 18th, 2016, Washington, D.C. musician Brahm (born Chaz Barber) posted a cryptic message on Facebook: “Rebirth”.  Following that post, Brahm posted pictures with nothing tied to them: a classic cat keyboard scratcher, a box full of floppy disks, and his logo.  The anticipation was crippling for Brahm’s fans; all of them enquiring to find out what was happening.  … Continue reading Brahm Shares Single “Lobotronix”

Song Premiere: Sami Wolf, “Driving 90”

Chicago-based Sami Wolf doesn’t need any gimmicks to sell her raw blend of acoustic rap.

Most of her debut, See You on The … Continue reading Song Premiere: Sami Wolf, “Driving 90”
