DAS RACIST



So Good! First off go to their band camp (link 'BandCamp' below the picture) for 20 FREE mp3 tracks! They are all amazing songs. Das Racist is an alternative hip-hop group from Brooklyn, NYC. Their style is somewhat different, with humorous rap, it is not like any other rap group that I know of. I encourage all to take a listen to their work.

Noah And The Whale



I am sure everyone has heard of this English Indie Folk band from England. I first heard of them with their song 5 Years Time, and then recently I heard Give a Little Love, which made me love them ten times more. Those two songs I think sound completely different. I love how deep the lead singers voice can get.

Future Islands - Tin Man

I wanted to share this one song by the Future Islands because it is currently on repeat on my ipod. I am just in love with the lead singers voice.
I was able to find a source to give a Free Download on my page but here is a free download for Tin Man on this other amazing music blog.



Gui Boratto



Gui Boratto is an electronic music producer form Sao Paulo, Brazil. His work is amazing and my ultimate favorite song is No Turning Back, the song seriously puts me in a state where I forget my problems. I wish I knew how to get you this for free but I could not find and a way. Simply buy this song on iTunes, it's well worth the money.

Nightmare & The Cat



Love this! I have been a fan of Django Stewart for a while now, I saw his old band Django James & The Midnight Squires back in 2009 at eVocal in Costa Mesa during Young the Giant (The Jakes) residency there. What I remember is the vibe from the lead singer in Django James. Unfortunately they broke up and I sort of forgot about that musician up till recently when I saw Django Stewart on NYLON: Band Crush with his new band Nightmare & the Cat! I am so excited for all these songs. What attracts me to their songs the most I think is his voice, it's so unique. My favorite song is Desert Heir.

Shakey Graves



Alejandro Rose-Garcia is the singer song writer for Shakey Graves. I some how stumbled upon Shakey Graves through a blog and fell in love with the music. You must know these songs are amazing, he is extremely talented. The song that I first heard was I'm On Fire but after to listening to his album they are all my favorite. I downloaded his album Roll the Bones off of his band camp and it's all I'm listening too. It reminds me of like a solo version of Mumford and Suns & mix between Dr. Dog & great lyrics. Well that was the first thing that came to my mind. I don't see a a tour yet, but I am crossing my fingers for a show in Los Angeles sometime soon.

You should as well Download his album Roll the Bones




Roll The Bones - Shakey Graves from CATJAM Studio on Vimeo.

Jamie XX



Jamie Smith (from The XX) or known by his stage name Jamie XX. He is an English music producer and remix artist if you will. His proffessional musical career started when he joined The XX. I recently heard his remix from Jack Penate - Pull My Heart Away. Seriously an amazing artist. I saw The XX at Coachella back in 2010 and had no idea one of the band member is INSANELY awesome. There is a strong rumor that Jamie XX is going to be playing at Coachella 2012, and I for one hope this rumor is true because I would LOVE to hear his tunes live & loud. Also I suggest listening to his remix of Radiohead - Blom.




Here is as well a FREE DOWNLOAD of Jamie XX BBC Radio Essential Mix
it's over an hour long of amazing tunes, your welcome.

Pink Ganter



Refreshing to hear some clean remixes. Markus Ganter is a German producer form Maheim, Germany. When researching him I couldn't find much, but that doesn't even matter. All you need to know are the songs he is producing. Check out his soundclod for The Naked Famous remix.



Also while you're at it listen to my favorite song, So This is Goodbye

Mackintosh Braun



Lovely band I stumbled upon on Pandora (my playlist is form Empire of the Sun).  I thought I would share this find with you guys! Check out their facebook you can get a couple free remixs. I can't stop listening to Wake Up, it's my favorite.
