At least once a week Manley and I have a mini music meeting in our office. We blast the new, new and we're either jamming out or yelling "Next!" Hey, being a music nerd can be brutal, but someone has to do it. We rounded up some jams that we think you should be listening to right now, check them out!

Manley says:

Foals - Exits - I'm so excited for new music from Foals that I could swear! I get a Talking Heads vibe from Exits a bit and I can’t wait to see what other new tricks they have up their sleeves when the new album comes out this March.

Briston Maroney - Under My Skin - I miss good old fashioned bluesy rock music with big guitars. This scratches that itch perfectly. For fans of early Black Keys. 

Walk the Moon - Timebomb - I was originally upset that this wasn’t a Rancid cover, but now that I'm over that I really dig the song.

 

Alyssa says:

Vampire Weekend Harmony Hall - If it feels like it's been forever since we heard any new music from Vampire Weekend, that's because it has been! They haven't released any new tunes in six years. Six! I am a hardcore VW fan and stoked that today they gifted us with not one, but two new songs! Harmony Hall is by far my favorite of the two. What do you think?

 

Alice Merton Learn to Live - Alice Merton just released her debut full-length album and it is a BOP of an LP! I am really enjoying it and even though this song is my fav at the moment, 2 Kids, Homesick and I Don't Hold A Grudge are all solid tracks as well and you should just listen to the entire thing!

 

Jenny Lewis - Red Bull & Hennessy - It's been five years since Jenny Lewis dropped an album and 2019 will break that silent streak. Her upcoming LP, On The Line, will hit us March 22nd and this is the first taste! Let me know what you think.
