5 Best Covers From Hangout Music Festival 2015

In DubEra, Festivals, Florida by Maxx McInerneyLeave a Comment

Hangout Festival has something special about it. Located right outside of Florida on the beautiful beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama, our team has attended the past 5 years and seen some kick ass cover songs at the festival. I don’t know if something about the beach makes you want to play cover tunes, but it’s a tradition we now look forward too and one that impresses us every time. The beach tends to bring out the best in bands and it keeps …

EVENT PREVIEW: Tycho Is Coming To Downtown Miami On June 10th

In Florida by Maxx McInerneyLeave a Comment

Trippy, uplifting, airy, soothing, vibey, and mysterious would all be words to describe the productions of Tycho. Originally a solo project, Tycho is now a 3 piece band. This is an artist we’ve been looking forward to seeing for a while. One of the few we haven’t had the pleasure of watching live. Tycho will be performing at Grand Central in Downtown Miami next month as they cruise the country on a Summer tour. It will be interesting to see …

Hiatus Kaiyote: Australian Jazz Purveyors With a Modern, Diverse Style

In New York by Chris TartLeave a Comment

An Australian quartet by the name of Hiatus Kaiyote has been all over the internet for years now with their mix of jazz, soul, hip hop, and progressive time signatures. I was lucky enough to catch their recent sold out show at New York City’s Gramercy Theatre, which spawned a few ideas on the modern band, the state of modern jazz, and the continuation of Australian dominance in music. For starters, Hiatus Kaiyote is a freshly assorted sound: a spastic blend for J Dilla …

NEW MUSIC: Koan Sound – Forgotten Myths EP [Electronic/Glitch/Downtempo]

This duo from the UK has been on our radar for quite some time now. Every one of their EPs is full of power. They can produce the heaviest of tracks and the most elegant of tracks. The new EP hits multiple genres from heavy glitch hop, to drum and bass, to some soothing downtempo. They use a hip hop/ glitch foundation for majority of their works which gets our attention almost every time. The sounds they use make you …

Hangout Music Festival 2015 set times are out. Everyone will undoubtably have something they love and hate about them. Creating a festival schedule is a tricky thing because you just can’t please everyone. Here are some of our thoughts on the 2015 Schedule. First of all we hate that they put Umphrey’s and Foo Fighters at the same time. Nothing we can do though. The second thing were not very thrilled about is a lot of the acts were excited …

FESTIVAL REVIEW: In The Allman’s Absence, Wanee Still Thrives

In Festivals, Florida by Chris Tart5 Comments

Over the past four years, our outlet has been to the Suwannee somewhere around 20 times. Each festival is special and brings a unique experience, but one festival is the biggest. Wanee, both in attendance and in caliber of artistry, is always the largest gathering at the beloved Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. With the Allman Brothers Band calling it a day, there was a huge void to be filled – an impossible one. Nevertheless, thousands and thousands of …
