Last Week’s Jam’s Today (2.28 – 3.4)

Last week was one of those weeks where I wanted to write about all the songs; Ryan crushed it with tons of SXSW interviews, letting you get to know the likes of Best Move, Coyle Girelli, No Swoon and more. So, we’ve got to go back and give you a quick list of all the jams, and there were tons! You had new stuff from Austinites Friday Boys, Bright Light Social Hour and Wiretree, then Neutrals and Mick Love made my weekend with hits at the end of the week. There’s tons to browse through here, so go check it out.

Babehoven Shares Dissociative Tally

Maya Bon, aka Babehoven, set out to craft a tune that expresses her own dissociative tendencies, crafting a piece that utilizes an adjusted vocal to create this modern delirium that operates like a musical black hole that refuses to let you go. Listening through on repeat, the song has this old school slow-core feel to it, something that really just feels primal in its existence, like we’ve been stripped down to our barest existence, only to find joy in pop music. There’s a nice little twist in the song waiting for you at the end too, so don’t just nod your head in agreement, indulge in this jewel; Babehoven releases the Yellow has a Pretty Good Reputation on January 29th.
