Bryson Cone's "Desire" Leaves Us Desiring His Debut

It's likely you've heard the smooth croon of Bryson Cone before. Be it as the frontman of Fog Father, an appearing face in Reptaliens or belting out all the slick R&B jams at your local karaoke spot, Bryson Cone has got a voice rich like butter and a knack for catchily hitting some keys. If his other projects weren't proof enough, his first few solo singles sure are, especially the one coming off of his upcoming debut.

"Desire," which officially came out a few days ago, is a lush art-pop diddy with intriguing effects and a lyrical story centered around unrequited proclivity and the search for a resolution. The song digs deeper than its colorful tunage let's off, layering airy synths with meaningful elements. 

Expect Bryson Cone's debut album sometime this Spring.

Zook Drops a Lo-Fi, Psychedelic Folk Surprise

We stumbled upon this beautiful mesh of of lo-fi, psychedelic, garage rock, and country and couldn't help sharing it. Carrots is an EP that draws on a whole plethora of genres and musical elements to craft something remarkably fresh. Groovy acoustic guitar rhtyhms draw on the retro psychedelic, folk rock traits of bands like T. Rex and The Brian Jonestown Masssacre while tiny tin-can, creepy, distorted vocals prove reminiscent of more recent lo-fi outfits like King Tuff. The songs periodically veer off into saccharine, psychedelic instrumentals, rising and falling into crescendos of reversed guitar riffs. It's as if someone found a way to make jam bands less tiresome, indulging in the blissful potential of a guitar solo with enough taste to know when to bring it back home. There's virtually nothing online about this guy. He's got a facebook page with two likes and a bandcamp account, but with a first release like this, let's hope we hear more from him soon. - Andrew Strader

PREMIERE: Rafael Vigilantics - "Ramblin' Bones"

 Blending folk, neo-soul and hip hop in a broodingly mysterious yet openly raw manner, Rafael Vigilantics shares with us a new haunting and emotional track titled "Ramblin' Bones." Co-written with Noah Harmon of Airborne Toxic Event, "Ramblin' Bones" tells a tale of long living with the skeletons in our closet. Captured with relatable lyrics and captivating with its video visuals, "Ramblin' Bones" shares a struggle we've all gone through - not being able to let our demons go.

On making the track, Rafael Vigilantics says "'Ramblin’ Bones' is about never being able to quite go home or leave behind the things that haunt us, about how a fresh start seems to only come from the deepest and most brutal of fires."

Even though we can't escape what ills us, we can at least escape into Rafael Vigilantics' beautifully shot video. Watch it below.
