Phoenix AZ modern rockers Kongos have a new song for us (actually it came out on Friday). New record is called Egomaniac and it’s out on June 10th. The song is called “Take It From Me.” Has a nice deep bounce and drives along at slow to mid-tempo. Sounds almost like it wants to be a running song.

Go with yourself.

I had a chance to talk with Dylan Kongos from the modern rockers Kongos.  He dialled up the show from the Lower Eastside of Manhattan the other day.

We talked about the accordion that threads together Kongos’ smash “Come With Me Now” and the world music inspirations.  I also ask Dylan about his old man, John Kongos, who had some European and South African hits in the 1970s.   Have a listen to “He’s Gonna Step on You Again.”

Neon Trees
Neon Trees are a band we do know here at the Zone.  The group from Provo, Utah had a hit on the Zone back in 2010 called “Animal.” New record is called Pop Psychology and it’s out in April.  This song about sleeping with your buddy is charting it up on the modern rockers in the U S of A.

American Authors are a positive rock band from Brooklyn.  Their song is called “Best Day of My Life.”  The style is similar to Lumineers or Of Monsters and Men, they sing about positivity, and their logo looks like a coffee shopI think these guys will do alright.

Kongos are a brother band from South Africa now living in Arizona.  The four brothers bring a noise that melds a little accordion into an AWOLNATION-esque beat. (I’d share the band’s official stream, but they have “embedding” turned off)

Lastly… maybe the highest charting song we’re not playing too much in Canada, Phantogram.  The longtime friends from Upstate New York have a record out in February called Voices.  Song is getting blasted pretty regualr on KROQ and The End in Seattle.

You feeling any of these song?  All of these songs?  DERP! none of these songs?

Go with yourself.
