Robby Hunter Band has always done great on GMAD and HypeMachine (specifically with Hard On Me and Bust), and today they are back with a brand new song entitled “Bull Ride”. The song is the second taste of things to come since their debut album Magic City Hippies (released in July 2013) and sets the bar high for things to come. The guys have been busy working on their sophomore LP Hippie Castle, named in honor of the 1970s Miami bungalow they call their home and headquarters.

The Nashville band, Under Great Lights, is one of our favorite new acts of 2014 and today they are back with a new release in the form of a lyric video (done by Will Weyer) for a brand new song “4:20″. While the song clearly has a home with any stoner, the overall song is true to the UGL brand with nothing but upbeat, positive, fun vibes. If you missed their previous releases, including their hit “This Must Be Love”, check them out here. The guys are gearing up for their debut EP release next month, so give them a follow on Twitter and enjoy!
The first time I stumbled upon I Know The Chiefback in November of last year I have been anticipating some amazing work from the group. I Know The Chief are the lovechild of former indie band, ‘Passport’. Describing their euphoric sound as ‘Jungle Disco’ the band is one you are going to want to keep on your radar. Here they lets loose a FREE cover to an Arctic Monkey’s song “R U Mine?”. Let us know what you think and don’t forget to check out more music via SoundCloud and to follow them on Twitter. Enjoy.
It’s been over a month since we last heard from alt-J when they released “Left Hand Free,” the catchy second single taken from their upcoming album This Is All Yours — slated for release September 22nd. Now the Leeds, England trio are back with another taste of the new LP which showcases the distinct experimental funk-rock sound they have been crafting and perfecting since their debut album. On “Every Other Freckle” you can easily find yourself slipping into the groove of the beat, coming as a welcomed return to the style that garnered them so much acclaim after An Awesome Wave. The bass-heavy vibe is undeniable but there is a certain delicacy to the approach of this new track and in our opinion is the most impressive of the three released singles. Preorder This Is All Yours from iTunes below to receive all 3 tracks immediately and head over to Facebook and SoundCloud for more alt-J. Enjoy!
Earlier today Visionary Music Group member Jon Bellion dropped a brand new record titled “Simple and Sweet” along with some pretty awesome visuals to accompany the release.

Not only did Jon bless us with new music today, he also announced the release date of his next project “The Definition” which will be released on September 23rd of this year. On top of all of this great news, he’s also recently announced a nationwide headlining “Beautiful Mind Tour” which you can check out and purchase tickets for by visiting the official website via the link below.

“The budget was through the floor, so me and Kavan The Kid just hit a grocery store and invited over a bunch of people from the internet. I remember looking around my house and thinking ‘who the fuck are these people and where are their clothes?’ It took a whole day to clean up, and if my landlord sees this I’m pretty sure my label will not be getting back the damage deposit.” -Nova Rockafeller
