Cinnamon Chasers Minimix Summer 2009

I wouldn't expect anything less from these guys to top off Summer 2009.

Their album A Million Miles From Home is one of my favorites this year, it is such a refreshing change of pace from all the dirty electro crap out there right now.

Evan Voytas

I will let other writers speak on my behalf on this one, I am too busy bobbing my head to this guy's music.

"After spending time in New York City, the deserts of New Mexico, a farmhouse in rural Pennsylvania, and a tour bus constantly surrounded by teenage girls, Evan Voytas is presently in Los Angeles. With influences ranging from underground hip hop to classic sunshine pop, Voytas dresses like your grandpa and sounds like the future." - Myspace Page

"Don’t sleep on him any longer, if this kid continues to write songs as good as “I Live This Life Here For You”, he could become our American version of M83." - In Flight At Night

"If you're not listening to Evan Voytas, you're seriously missing out... and I'm not just saying that. You're missing out on an art form here." - Circles of Concrete

I Live This Life Here For You

The Entrance Band

I have been following LA psychedelic blues outfit The Entrance Band for a few years now because I actually used to skateboard with band founder Guy Blakeslee back in the day in Baltimore. I lost track of him until a few years ago when I read a review of one of The Entrance Band's shows at Spaceland I believe.

Enough bullshit, these guys rock. Their new self titled album is filled with tasty blues licks, 60's Laurel Canyon psych-rock and space-aged guitar tones.

Highly recommended.




CFCF - Continent

Big Love (Fleetwood Mac Cover?)

You Hear Colours


Vampire Weekend - Horchata
