Today’s Featured Exclusive

The Window

by Sam Russo

From Sam: ”The Window is about chasing down your demons, Evil Dead 2 style. It was the first song I recorded for Back To The Party and it’s the only good thing I’ve ever done before 7am with two guys in a sweaty room with a two-way mirror.” Back To The Party, his third album, is a diverse-sounding record with a broad spectrum of emotions on display. You can hear the loyalty and the love, the fear and the hope, the desperation and the triumph. You can also hear Sam trying new things as he crafts 33 minutes of his best stuff yet.

Mistakes

by One Million Motors

One Million Motors is deja vu, like stories from strangers where you already know the ending. lt's the coffee and cigarette musings of The Menzingers; the tongue twitching urgency of the Descendents; the stumbling everyman poetics of Dave Hause.
