Desert Weather's "Still in My Head" is a joyous garage-rock jam

A shrieking cry opens Desert Weather's swaggering new single, "Still in My Head." The garage rock quartet captures the euphoric excitement of meeting a special someone whose spirit is infectious. Led by singer Eric Smedberg's vocal nonchalance, the band tears through a raw, yet exuberant guitar work that's backed up by a chugging backbeat. "I'm screaming your name/from the top of my lungs," he openly declares, fully surrendering to a rush of emotions that are impossible to contain. And as it unfolds, we can't help but feel the excitement, too. 

"Still in My Head" is the first single off the band's forthcoming EP, due out later this year. Juan Rodríguez

   

Broke For Free (BFF) releases video that’s weird in a good way

Broke for Free (BFF) just released a fun and weird video for their new track “Jibberish (Feat Awon)" and it is a weird and fun trip we won't even try to explain. Mouths all over the place and we're loving it. The man behind the noise, Tom Cascino, says his influences range from Outkast to Tycho, Modest Mouse to Tyler the Creator. He’s an all over the place hip hop eletro pop creator and “Jibberish” is a perfect introduction to his work. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
