New Music super explosion again today so let’s get to it.

We’ll start with Australia’s Panama. His sophomore ep, Hope For Something, is out on June 23rd from Future Classic.

The press from blog hyper said, “This gem of a tune is ethereal and slow-burning, with a heartbreaking back story. It was written as a letter to a friend who took their life.”

I love Panama. He is an artist I routinely revisit and try to fit into my DJ sets. First listen of the new “Undertow,” I’m into it….. wait, was the name of that new Alvvays song also “undertow?”  ahhhhh ‘In Undertow.” Neat.



A band we know and love on the World Famous CFOX… Banners!

The British/Canadian (?) singer shared a new song today called “Someone To You.” It is a BIG sounding modern rock jammer that borrows a little from Mumford and Sons.

Michael Nelson says,  “When someone loves you, you feel like a rock star, like a hero. This song is about that, about wanting that and about making someone else feel that too.”

Harlem based Two Feet has a wave of energy behind today’s release, Momentum.

The ep features some light electonica and reverby guitar with a whisper like vocal.

It’s chill.

Happy Friday!

Go with yourself.

I love Aussie synth bro Panama. I still listen to “Stay Forever” regularly. “Always,” “Destroyer,” he has a bunch of beauties.

His new single is called “Hope For Something.” The song will be part of a new ep by the same name out on June 23rd.

It’s about a battle with yourself. This song was a bit like therapy for me as it helped me resolve some things I had been holding on to for a very long time. Writing is, was like self-talk.” 
– Panama singer/songerwriter, Jarrah McCleary


Love it.


Happy Thursday! I’ll be DJing tonight at Match Eatery and Public House in New West if you’re looking to get after weekend early.

panama stay forever

Another geographically named band from Australia. This is an older cut from Sydney’s Panama. But the song is new to me!

We previously enjoyed the minor modern rock hit “Always” on the blog earlier in the summer.

Panama released the wistful ode to suburban friendship in August as a free download. (actually I don’t know what they’re saying….I thought it said “Stay forever, friends, in the suburbs”…I’m an idiot.)

It took me a while to listen to this song, luckily an old Site of Sound blog post showed up on my feed.

Finally found a few moments to jam out a blog on a Tuesday. I don’t know about you, but I go through pretty much everyday in a state of overwhelmededness. Wake up, strap in, and ride that pony till bedtime. Repeat.

I took a couple days off at the end of this week to hit the Tall Tree Festival…so I do have my eye on that prize.

Earlier today I was trolling the charts of some modern rock radio stations in the States. Here are a few songs that caught my ear. In no order.

We’ll starts with a couple bros from Columbus, Ohio (Go Blue Jackets!) called Twenty One Pilots, and their emo tale of having their car radio stolen.  Poor little duders. Catchy jingle. I wanted to hate it, but kept hitting play on it.

The War on Drugs are starting to gain a little radio traction with their single “Red Eyes” off their 2014 record Lost in the Dream.

This one is from a guy named Max Frost. Reminds me of a slightly more eclectic Fitz and the Tantrums? maybe?

From Sydney, Australia… its Panama (the band…not the nation).

Australians are so hot right now…The GRISWOLDS singing about having the fun sucked out of them? sexual? or vampire?

Hozier gets all serious out at the end. “I was born sick but I love it.” Thanks Irish guy.

That’s what i got, go with yourself.
