So I stumbled upon these guys that go by the name Fatch the other day and have listened to their whole project “French Are Trully Cool & Handsome” several times. Based out of Paris, France these guys have an incredible indie sound that makes me want more from the guys. With that being said I wanted to introduce you to them and give you all my favorite track off the project titled “My Friend”. If you are digging the vibes as much as I am be sure to check our more of their music via Soundcloud and don’t forget to follow them on Twitter for future releases. Enjoy.

Kygo has become one of my favorite producers recently. Being able to take any track and make it a beautiful tropical masterpiece is what makes the 22 year old producer from Norway so amazing. Here he takes Benjamin Francis Leftwich‘s single “Shine” and put his master skills to it. Such a great feel to a single. If you have missed any of Kygo’s previous work be sure to check out his Soundcloud and don’t forget to follow him on Twitter. Enjoy.

Hey guys! Here’s my remix of Benjamin Francis Leftwich’s “Shine”. I think Benjamin has an amazing voice, so I decided to do a remix. Hope you like it! -Kygo

Pujol, the Nashville based power-house fronted by mastermind Daniel Pujol, is quickly becoming a leader in the new sounds of underground rock n’ roll being pumped out of middle Tennessee.  If getting the nod of approval from Jack White’s Third Man Records isn’t enough, Pujol’s teaming up with Saddle Creek Records once again for this new project.  With the announcement of ‘KLUDGE’, an EP to follow up their 2012 release United States of Being, Pujol’s unique & catchy sound sound has been grabbing the attention of fans all over the country.  In their newest single, ‘Circles’, Pujol shows off his incredible guitar work and dynamic melodic genius.  Be sure to stay up with both Pujol and Saddle Creek Records to get all the news on ‘KLUDGE’, out May 20th. If you dig this also check out ‘Pitch Black‘, another banger off ‘KLUDGE’. Enjoy.

CHERUB has been having an insane growth within the last year or so. From going on a headlining tour, playing at the majority of music festivals this summer to getting a picture in the latest issue of Rolling Stone, these guys are some of the hottest producers in the game right now. Cherub is originally from Nashville, TN and are good friends of ours here at GMAD. Just this past year we got to link up with them when they were in town for a Live On The Green afterparty at Marathon Music Works. [Watch Video Here] Anyways, we are super excited for the release of Cherub’s upcoming project ‘Year Of The Caprese’ set for release May 27th.

Bent Denim – Epistolary EP

+10
-1
  

“Epistolary” begins with Bent Denim’s roots on the opening track,  Southern Cities. Both members of the band, Dennis Sager and Ben Littlejohn, come from from the great state of Texas, but now live separately in different states (Dennis-Louisiana / Ben-Tennessee) and because of this, they were forced to write “Epistolary” by sending each other their ideas via email. Southern Cities couldn’t be a more perfect way to start the EP.

Living Room reminds me of the sweetest and most fragile aspects of the late great Sparklehorse that I find so soothing and close to my heart, then it kicks right into Fuel. Your soul is initially shocked by the change of pace, your head starts bobbing and your heart starts racing. If you’ve been listening intently to “Epistolary”, by now you have no control over your body – Bent Denim is controlling you now.

Periodic Table takes you right back into the relaxed introspective side of Bent Denim, with lyrics that hit close to home. I often mistake them for my own subconscious monologue, and as it ends you’re given Window. You hear birds, you close your eyes and envision the most beautiful scenery. Just when you see this window in your mind, the image is quickly removed and now you’re underwater drifting to the swells and pulses of Nine Years.

“Epistolary” ends on a melancholy note, with Cavalcade leaving you thinking.

In all “Epistolary” is a beautiful EP that feels more like an album in the best ways. The seamless flow of songs and the emotional ride Bent Denim takes you on with “Epistolary” is thoughtful, exciting, and leaves you questioning where you are right now on this earth, the person you once were, and the person you strive to be.

Artwork by Young & Sick, who has done projects for Foster The People, Maroon 5 and Robin Thicke. CDs are available now, however, we at GMAD cannot wait until “Epistolary” is available on vinyl and cassette!

Since we last gave you an update on GMAD favorite SonReal, the Canadian emcee has been playing packed shows and preparing for an upcoming “Winter and the Wolves Tour”, which will be taking him all across the western US supporting Seattle’s own, Grieves. Today he took a break to release a very intimate live version of his song “Let Me”, along with the help of fellow Vancouver based band, The Boom Booms. Through SonReal’s attitude, swagger, and unmistakeable talent, It’s clear to see why we here at GMAD have been impressed by him for a while now. Check out more of SonReal on Facebook, and enjoy!
