Top Albums for Nathan

Honestly, I thought about foregoing a year-end list this year. I mean, if you read our site, you know what we love. But, list making can be fun, especially if you really really love music. My criteria was simple, and not based on what I think is “best,” but rather looking at the stuff I listened to the most, and eventually bought (or was gifted). Popular locals for my Nathan Wrapped have me living on an island in between San Francisco and Australia; label of the year would be Trouble in Mind (congrats to Bill and family!); genre would be: most awesome. Again, this is one man’s personal tastes, take it for what its worth.

Last Week’s Jams (10.2 – 10.6)

Kind of a hectic week on my end over here, with RayRay being out of town, B.Gray getting ready to fest, and well, the usual life goes on. Managed to squeeze in a couple of phenomenal shows, so that’s a bonus, catching both Lewsberg and the Walkmen. Tons of fun songs hit last week, though admittedly, it seemed a bit thin in comparison to weeks gone by. Still, Onyon dropped fresh tunes, and Lower Plenty finally dropped their marvelous new No Poets LP. Loved that English Teacher bop, so chose it to start off the playlist. Unfortunately, one of my favorite tunes was that new Lightheaded, but it wasn’t streaming yet, so be sure to check in with Slumberland Records on that note. Monday is here. So is the music.

It’s Friday, and while Austin is focused on ACL Weekend One, I’m here to turn your ears towards some great albums that you’ll benefit from if you’re into the whole streaming process. Several of these we’ve talked about quite a bit, so it’s good that now you can get your hands on them in their entirety. Going to start with what’s quickly becoming one of my favorite LPs of the year, then let you pick and choose what’s your flavor.

Last Week’s Jams (9.25 – 9.29)

While it seemed like a slow week, in my brain at least, there was lots of really great stuff to cover over on the site. We were happy to host the new video from Seablite, so be sure you drop in and give it a couple of looks. Plus, our Rock n’ Recipes features returned with Spain’s Melenas, who dropped their new Ahora LP on Friday. Plus, Austin was alive and kicking with new stuff from Molly Burch, Semihelix and Sun June. Seeing our old friends in Pop Filter return to the fold was just a little cherry on top of a great week of music. There’s lots more for you to find in this playlist!

Class Drop Just Another Number

We ran a fresh track from Class just a few weeks ago, and the group are back with another tune from their forthcoming LP, If You’ve Got Nothing. While their first single flirted with the catchy realm of pop punk meets power pop, their latest is all bite and no bullshit. It opens with this dangerous riff, setting the scene for a stalking vocal performance that leaves the group growling through an old school brand of rock n’ roll. An emphatic refrain is barked at the listener as noise swell and punches to the close. Feel It Records will drop the LP on October 6th.

Last Week’s Jams – (9.11 – 9.15)

It seems weird to say, but last week was the first time in a long time where I was able to find every song we covered on all the DSPs! Does this mean I’ve gone mainstream? Anyways, we had a few premieres running from the likes of Class and Alijca-Pop, so be sure to check those jams out.. And, as per usual, dipped our toes in the Austin pond, with new stuff from Holy Wire and the stream of Will Johnson‘s new LP. Oh, and we made sure we had as much Oceanic coverage as possible, throwing our weight behind Soft Covers, Native Cats, The Small Intestines and Exek! Give a listen to the singles below!

Class Announce New LP, Share Behind the Ball

Pressing play on any record or track from Class is going to have you immediately digging through your closet for that OG leather jacket and a pair of black sunglasses; it’s an all encompassing cool that’s simply inescapable. Today, they add to their legend with the announcement of If You’ve Got Nothing, their latest ripper. The announce comes with a new jam that’s currently rattling the speakers here; it’s high-octane riffs run amok, with a rhythm section built in to tickle your ears. Still, like any Class record would have, there’s this anthemic quality that makes your listening experience such a joy; that owes to the handclaps and “ahhs,” all of which get executed with effortless cool. I know you’re digging it, so be sure to grab a copy of If You’ve Got Nothing before it drops on October 6th via Feel It Records.
