On November 20th, RAC‘s ‘Go Your Own Way’ tour stops in LA to show that following the music mold is never the way to go. Seeing Andre’s growth over the years as been a wonderfully heartwarming ride. Seeing his band headline their own tour alongside other rising greats is icing on the cake.

 

Big Data, Geographer, and filous will even out the night of good vibes. If you’ve ever seen any of these bands live, then you know this night is going to be one for the books.

 

HOW TO ENTER

Standard procedure. The contest ends at 12PM Wednesday, November 18th!

El Niño is underway shaping the months to come. Farther north, the heavens rain soft white on grey peaks. We edge closer and closer to the permanent snuggle of winter. Here are a few tracks to help the blood flow.

 

GEOFFROY – Soaked in Gold

Montreal’s Geoffroy and sauve are one in the same. Undeniably Chet-esque, there’s a romanticism in the electronic-acoustic style that sets him clearly apart. Soaked in Gold is out 11.13.

 

Finch Fetti x Sabrina Claudio – Hotline Bling (Drake Cover)

Finch Fetti and Sabrina Claudio turn this radio hit on its head with this wanting cover. Warm bass, faded synths, and angelic vocals exchange Drake‘s structures for a more late night lovers’ vibe.

 

RAC – 3AM ft. Katie Herzig (filous Remix)

RAC‘s Going Away Tour kicked off last week and the traveling party decided to create this lovely little heart-lifter to set the tone. Filous‘s lofty feel good sound added to Katie Herzig‘s romantic vocals takes it down a totally different road that still serves the hopeful purpose.

 

VIMES – Kyra

This quick mood setter drops in heavy with the mellow space. VIMES is a German duo that has been effectively combining the – lately – deeper musical ideals of the region. ‘Kyra’ is their latest foray into the steady drive of techno coupled with the humanism of heartbreak pop.

 

Charles Murdoch – Privacy ft. Oscar Key Sung

Charles Murdoch‘s soon-to-be debut POINT features the off-kilter rhythm of Oscar Key Sung in this curiously warm yet cautious track. POINT is out 12.11 on Future Classic.

 

World Champion – Shakes

As if it were any surprise, funky kraut-psych via World Champion coming by way of Australia has a lot of soul. Even less of a surprise, Future Classic picked these guys up for their forthcoming EP Avocado Galaxy (12.04).

San Francisco! RÜFÜS / RÜFÜS DU SOL wasn’t about to skip out on NorCal while on the west coast. You’d be hard pressed to find an artist not take an advantage of coming to this amazing city…in our favorite venue of the area, no less. Not to mention they’re bringing Cassian for support! Honestly, what this band brings to the table combining dancy, smooth electronic with a full live band is everything we ask for in a show. Simply cannot wait for this.

RÜFÜS / RÜFÜS DU SOL touches down in Los Angeles this Friday (11|6) for their ‘You Were Right’ tour. The tour title track is the first single off their very much anticipated sophomore release. It hints at everything that we love about Atlas and more – danceable and emotional. Their live show has received much acclaim; expect to hear new tracks as well as classics from this Sydney trio.

One of the most exciting things as a writer and fan is to see an artist come into their own greatness. In this case we have two rising stars that are showing a glimpse of just how great they will be. The passionately soulful and rhythmic vocals were so gently laid down by Skela that seems effortless. They come together with Jacobson’s flowy, ethereal production in such a way that oozes the feeling of crushing freshly fallen leaves in the fall. I expect to see a lot more coming from these two in the near future.
