Jenn Wasner and Beth Varden - I Can’t Stand (Zola Jesus Cover)
Off The Friends Records 2011 Compilation. I blogged about this track a while back. You can read about it and listen HERE.
Ifan Dayfdd - Treehouse
This video is fucking dope, giving viewers a much more candid look inside the world of the electronic producer on the rise. And well you don’t need me to tell you this track is next level. Go buy Ifan Dayfdd’sTreehouse EP if you haven’t already, HERE.
Rhye - Open
Promiscuous hipster sex is the epitome of LA. Insane that this is the LA duo, Rhye’s first single. Really hoping they start playing shows in LA soon.
Elephant & Castle’s Mapzzz x Signal Flow Sharkbite Session - Sweet Someone
The first in the ongoing series of performances from burgeoning artists and producers live in Oakland’s Sharkbite Studios. Elephant & Castle is one talented dude with his hands in so many projects, def keep an eye on this guy.
Flavio Rodriguez - Ego
The homie at Egyptian Maraccas sent me this video he helped produce, and well, it’s really sexy and beautiful. Great tune as well. I’m just going to come out and say it, all of my friends are more talented than me. This vid is a perfect example. Flavio Rodriguez is a lucky guy.
Julia Holter - In The Same Room
She’s a babe with some serious lungs. Dig this video a whole bunch too. Julia Holter’s album Ekstasis drops March 8th. Be sure to snag it from RVNG HERE.
