LeRiche is an artist that has been on our radar for the past few weeks. The glorious new track “Hair Elastic,” is the current single sharing the love and our ears are surely enticed. The track is co-produced by Nathan Ferraro & Ben Nudds for his next EP, due early 2020. “Hair Elastic” is a melancholic song about a little souvenir he keeps with him when he’s on the road. “Buried in my pocket / found your little hair elastic / And I can’t get past it,” he sings in his sweet falsetto…we’re head over heels!
No stranger to the music word, LeRiche’s second and most current EP, X-Dreamer — released in the UK/Europe on Fierce Panda, Australia and New Zealand on Indica, and Germany on Popup — has enabled him to do just that, tour, in Canada and overseas, including The Great Escape in the U.K., and all over Germany (he’ll return in January for 15 dates). It led to two nominations at the 2019 East Coast Music Awards, rising star and video of the year for “River Runs,” and four at the MusicNL Awards, including rising star and fan choice. The EP peaked at No. 21 on iTunes Canada’s alternative chart, was added to Sirius’ North Americana station, and various other playlists, and, to date, has accumulated almost 2 million streams worldwide.
2020 can’t come soon enough! Track out the track, below.

KilCool is one of the most infectious musical acts that has come across our ears in a long time. The New York based act has just released a phenomenal new album that needs to be on your radar, and NOW.
The record, released late August, is the perfectly titled “Low Tide.” The release is truly a labor of blood, sweat and tears from start to finish as each song has you diving in a bit deeper to noteworthy collection of songs. KilCool is a man of many hats; he sings, produces and DJs as well.
His influences ranging from James Blake to Common to Kanye West.The official first full length, each song stands prominently on it’s own while blending together for a blissful meeting of instrumentation and melodies.
Tracks like “Insecurities” remind us a bit of artists like Toro y Moi while “My Terms,” is filled with retro laced beats.
From start to finish “Low Tide” is the new sound of the future…and it is glorious. KilCool is definitely our favorite new discovery of 2019.

Muscle Beach is set to release their Hard Rock laced album this October titled “Charms,”…and we are excited.
Muscle Beach is not interested in repeating themselves. Despite crafting a sure-fire formula on their 2015 debut LP, the Denver Post-Hardcore trio’s upcoming album “Charms,” is intentionally more abrasive, more challenging and more fun all at the same time. “Charms,” was recorded in 2018 by Felipe Patino at Green Door Recordings in Denver. Mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege in Portland, PR, and is set to be release in 2019 on Denver Indie label, Sailor Records.
Leading up to the release of “Charms,” the band has completed 4-west coast tours, 1 Midwest tour and has found themselves on bills supporting artists such as The Dillinger Escape Plan, Retox, Whores., Lightning Bolt, Buildings, Meat Wave, Gaytheist, Great Falls and more.
New Noise Magazine states “The band’s extremely driving brand of post-hardcore recalls Refused. The Bronx and Kvelertak- shreadded screams and an anxious attack co-mingle with stadium-sized hooks and beats making for a combo of ‘punk’ and ‘rock’ that is both Aggro and catchy as hell.”
We couldn’t agree more…

Don Mai releases one of our favorite singles of the Summer, “Won’t Let You Down,” and we are certainly head over heels!
The singer-songwriter brings an out a unique and flavorful sound that has him recalling artists such as Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber and the classics such as Tracy Chapman. The new single is equal parts Pop driven with ambitious acoustic guitar elements which intertwine. The song creates a beautiful aura around Don Mai’s vision, as his lyrics take you on a very special journey.
Don shares of the single’s inspiration:
“I was inspired to write “Won’t Let You Down” because I was really into someone, but she had been through some bad relationships and had her walls up. Still to this day I’m not sure if she didn’t like me or if she just didn’t want to be hurt again. I was actually writing another song at the time but it wasn’t going anywhere, but as soon as I started writing this song. Everything pieced together perfectly and we even finished the whole recording in 1 day”
Don’s new single will resonate with many as it brings love and relationships to the table; proving we all have our walls in one way or another. The song brings emotional and sincere elements to the table within the lyricism, which is held up by a stunning bed of instrumentation that drives the song home.
