Mwahaha - "Sundown" by Matt Valerio

Just like this blog right here…Bay Area band Mwahaha has been fairly quiet for some time. In addition to focusing on some other projects (vocalist Ross Peacock has been spending a lot of his time performing with Zachary James Watkins as Watkins/Peacock), they sadly lost their dear bandmate, visual artist Cyrus Tilton to cancer in 2017. Fortunately, Cyus had already recorded some of the initial ideas that ended up helping to shape this amazing record.

The track above is just a taste of what you’ll hear when their new record Lovers comes out in September.

Whitey - "Can't Go Out, Can't Stay In" / "Wrap It Up" by Matt Bomarr

whitey - "can't go out, can't stay in" (download)
Whitey is from London. He's a highly respected multi-instrumentalist who has recorded a few albums of his own, and done official remixes for Bloc Party, Cut Copy, Soulwax and Chromeo."Can't Go Out, Can't Stay In" is a mellow, summer day sort of song from his album The Light at the End of the Tunnel Is a Train. "Wrap It Up" is more upbeat and dancey, and is from the album Great Shakes, which, due to a very early leak on the internet, was never officially released. Recommended if you like LCD Soundsystem.
