Cash Pony – Snake


Scouring the web for good music is hard work. But every once in a while, I run across a gem like this! Odd time, creamy guitars and an immaculate horn section never hurt anyone. This is a great progressive band with relatable music.

Wild Belle- “It’s Too Late”

What an amazing sound these two have created… that’s Elliot and Natalie Bergman of Wild Belle whom I was referring to. You can hear quite the combination of genres mixed together in this one song. Seems like they’d be great to see live, and I can only imagine that everyone’s off their seats, dancing away… Keep an eye open for more good music from Wild Belle, since they just signed a 3-album contract with Columbia Records.

See You at Hangtown Halloween 2012, Oct. 26-28

After attending this year’s High Sierra Music Festival, I had met some folks (long time festival goers), who turned me on to what they referred to as “The best music festival of the year”, Hangtown Halloween. So you can imagine with little over a month away, and after just returning from Burning Man, I am overly excited to experience a weekend full of spectacular live music, dancing, and good people. This year Railroad Earth will be hosting the festival, while giving three performances throughout the weekend.
Besides looking forward to the entire festival blowing my mind, I can’t wait for a particular highlight, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and their tribute to the Beastie Boys… this should be quite the show!Tickets are still available, so grab them while you can (link below), check out the full lineup for 2012 and catch the video footage from last year’s Hangtown Halloween below. So grab a few costumes, your tent, and I’ll see you there!

Gary Clark Jr.- “Ain’t Messin’ Around”

Blak and Blue is dropping at the end of next month, 10/22, and should be pretty damn amazing, after all the hard work he’s been doing this year. He’s one of the greatest guitarists out there right now, and I recommend checking his other music out as soon as you have a chance.
