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.

RIYL: LCD Soundsystem, Soulwax, Kraftwerk, David Bowie

Paul McCartney - "Temporary Secretary" by Matt Bomarr

A huge departure from the McCartney music that everyone knows. "Temporary Secretary" is an upbeat, weird electronic track that'll get stuck in your head for days. McCartney II is his third solo album, and the first since the formation of Wings in 1971. It was released in 1980, a year before the band's dissolution and while their future lay in limbo. The album is a significant departure for McCartney, as much of the album relies heavily on synthesizers and studio experimentation. It has been cited as one of McCartney's most underrated and overlooked albums.
