EXCITED ABOUT: Wall – Untitled

NEW MUSIC: Ekurtis – HumDrum (Video)

“HumDrum” immediately captivates with its charming and essentially super catchy melody, the soft vocals and its minimalistic instrumentation.

NEW MUSIC: W. H. Lung – Really Something! (Video)

Watching the video to the stunning “Really Something!” (“Nothing Is”) it is impossible not to draw comparisons with the awesomeness and fascinating vibe of Radiohead’s Live From The Basement videos.
