The Winter Brave gained attention back in 2013 when Dave Grohl mentioned the band during his Reddit AMA. Drawing influence from the likes of The Black Keys, Cage the Elephant and Silversun Pickups, Boston brothers are releasing a new EP, The Hand You Never Seem to Lend, on July 28th. We're streaming a track from the effort titled "Taken" in the replies. With Grohl's stamp of approval, how could you not take a listen?

We spoke with X Ambassadors this week about their debut album VHS and their hit single "Renegades," currently the #1 Alternative song in the country. Check out the interview here.
Learn how to shut your ego out and make sure you’re not doing something out of sheer stubbornness and laziness. We made this record THREE times. That’s three almost entirely different records. Each time we thought it was done, and then we’d all come back to it and realize it wasn’t. It’s the hardest thing to start over again, but it will always be better a second time around.

Brandon Roundtree, formerly of Conditions, explains on Facebook why he called it quits.
I stopped playing music because I hated how dependent it made me on other people. My faith in what I was doing felt like a trapeze artist flailing from bar to bar, barely keeping in motion. I would sporadically meet amazing, naturally supportive people amongst the oceans of consumers and they would keep me going momentarily...only to inevitably be let down again at such an exponentially gargantuan rate that I would feel my personality change. I stopped playing music because I am a happy, extremely positive, and supportive person. I am back...and I buy music.

Google has launched an ad-supported music streaming service today, it's basically all playlist based.
The difference between this and Spotify is that with Google you never have control over exactly what songs are playing. Google Play Music product manager Elias Roman seems to think that many people won’t mind, since he believes most consumers are after an effortless “lean back” experience. “They want the music to be awesome. They want it to be contextually relevant, but they don’t want to tweak a lot of knobs,” he told The Verge.

Nas has written a statement on Instagram discussing racial inequality.
America has spent so much time, money & resources fighting wars abroad and completely fell asleep at the wheel of the war brewing within our cities, neighborhoods & blocks. We are supposed to stand for freedom & equal opportunity. That's supposed to mean MORE than just words but the actions of late just don't speak to what we are supposed to stand for. This is BIGGER than BLACK and WHITE. This is about America selling a false dream. Now we've obviously progressed since the inception of this nation but we took our eye off the ball and it feels as though things are moving backwards. As a black man, I find it difficult...

Burglary Years is a band from Boston that you could probably tag with a "dream-pop" label, but that doesn't stop the group from spending about half of its new six-minute single "Hatch" rocking out in a pretty heavy way. "Hatch," which you can find in the replies, is a song that lends itself to the listener as a perfectly adequate backdrop for zoning out and falling into its hazy melodies, but it's clear that the songwriting here is well thought out. Burglary Years will release 100 Roses this July via Boston-based label Disposable America, and the record has taken the group years to finalize; the result, if "Hatch" is proper indication, will be an LP worth listening to for its unique...

Remember when, way back when, on February 11, when I said that you guys should be listening to Microwave if you weren't already? Well guess what yes that's right folks, the guys in Microwave have sold out and are now teaming up with Taco Bell™ to present a (really nice) live acoustic video for their song "Labor Day." Check it out in the replies or on Taco Bell™'s Feed The Beat™ website. The band is going on tour with You Blew It! and Sorority Noise in August and if you're lucky, maybe you can steal some tacos from them.

Politics and music have come together any times in the past especially though punk music. Perfect Pussy, to many people seem, sonically radical or intensely personal but how does this relate to occupying a part of a famous art school? Here's an article on how this band helped me learn to stand up for the things most important to me.

If Cute Is What We Aim For hooked up with Motion City Soundtrack and had a baby, it would sound a lot like Treason This. The Wisconsin band will self-release their new EP, Always Perfect, on June 30th, but you can stream it now in its entirety in the replies. It's infectiously catchy with just enough uniqueness to make it stand out.

I recently sat down with Brent Martone of Head North in Philadelphia, to talk music, being signed, and their new EP Bloodlines -- check it out here.
The entire new record is a lot of stuff that is still pretty raw for me to play live. You know you play a song over and over and over again as much as it doesn’t lose its meaning to you its just you get used to the vibe that it gives off.
