Everest | Let Go

I have to give full propers to my brother for this one, he kept on me about listening to them after seeing them on Late Night Jim Jam. And honestly I'm glad he did.

With a sound that ranges from jangly drawl-laden rock to Jeff Buckley sounding slow burners, they have a sound that's going to stick in your head, specifically the above track.

I wish I wouldn't have missed them when they were at The Granada.

White Mystery | Powerglove

Having never been a fan of the White Stripes and only being a casual fan of the two-man combo that is The Black Keys, White Mystery bring the one-two punch to the guitar/drum combo that I like more than anything, aggression.

Alex and Francis White, a brother/sister combo eschew the white man blues of the Stripes and Keys and bring a more forceful punk feel to the game. Alex's vocals recall those of a Joplin meets the Stooges will all the raw power in tact.

Millionyoung | Chlorophyl

I'm working on a project for a client and it involves Florida musician Millionyoung and I pretty much instantly loved his music. And it pretty much hit me, he's in the same fucking "chillwave" sub-sub-sub-genre as Neon Indian.

However, you know what Millionyoung has in common with Neon Indian? They are both electronic acts. You know what the difference between the two is? You don't have to "get" Millionyoung, you listen, you like, then you love.
