Did you take any days off this summer, head into the woods to find your local watering hole? Brooklyn-via-Australia duo HIGH HIGHS did, bringing a video camera to capture the dives, backflips and carefree atmosphere of their day. Check out their video for their great cover of “A Real Human Being”, the College feat. Electric Youth song we all fell for from the Drive soundtrack. Grab the song on itunes here.
Rogue Wave are set to release their fifth studio album, Nightingale Floors on June 4th via Vagrant, and our first listen is in the single “College”. The brainchild of Zach Schwartz (aka Zach Rogue), Rogue Wave formed in 2002 in Oakland, CA. While the line-up has changed from album to album, the two constants have always been Zach and drummer Pat Spurgeon. Nightingale Floors finds the group secure in its sound and brimming with confidence. The result can only be described as a triumphant return to form.
Take a listen to music in a poppier direction for west coast artist Germany Germany, on an album he has coming out on July 16th called Blank Mind Empty Heart. The vocals come care of the albums’ producer Kotomi, check out “With You” and their cover of “Real Hero” by College/Electric Youth (the track a lot of us fell in love with from the Drive soundtrack).
