New week, new music! Check out what we’re listening too:
K.Flay – Life As A Dog
K. Flay is like none other. She crafts lyrics like a hip hop artist and has no problem conquering the straight up rap style, but she couples this with slowed down indie synth beats and adds a punk-rock edge to create a unique sonic experience. Life As A Dog is her newest album, self-released with the help of a Pledge Music campaign. This is the kind of record that is easy to get lost in with its lazy beats and K. Flay’s laid back, transfixing vocal. My favorite tracks are the somewhat more punchy “I’m Good” and the single, “Thicker Than Dust”, an anthem of friendship which feels lyrically relevant and has me singing along by the second chorus. I’m always in the market for something refreshing and compelling, and this album is just that. I highly recommend you checking it out!

My Goodness – Shiver + Shake
I’ve been looking forward to more from this band since I heard their single, “Cold Feet Killer” last year. Listening to the stream of this album, I hear everything you might want from a promising rock band. They’ve got the punch, the guitars, the bluesy accents, the howling vocal, the beats that make you want to bang your head and move your feet…more of this in my ears please!
You can stream the album here. Listen to “Sweet Tooth” to get a good taste
