Watch Superorganism perform ‘Everybody Wants To Be Famous’ in a pool

640 366

In the video, Superorganism perform with their sprawling, multi-limbed collection of international musicians and pop culture junkies. They had us at their debut single, “Something for your M.I.N.D.” Recently, we’ve been playing “Everybody Wants To Be Famous.” We can’t get enough of them. Their songs have a way of getting stuck in your M.I.N.D.


Watch Superorganism perform “Everybody Wants To Be Famous” below as they give off their infectious, supernatural, fun vibes and synth dangerously close to water.

Courtney Barnett is coming to Milwaukee!

640 424

In October, we’ll be seeing Courtney Barnett in Milwaukee with special guest Waxahatchee opening the show. And, by the time Barnett will be in town, we’ll already be jamming to her new album, “Tell Me How You Really Feel” which is coming out on May 18.

The pre-sale will start on Thursday, March 22 at noon. To buy advance tickets, use the code: nameless. The regular sale will begin the next day, on Friday at 10 a.m.

Courtney Barnett in Milwaukee

We’ve already gotten a sneak peak of her upcoming album with two singles. The first, “Nameless, Faceless,” is an infectious punk rock anthem. Simmering with indignation and sarcasm, it examines the phenomenon of incessant and anonymous internet trolls. Through song, Barnett is using the medium she knows best to return fire.

“Need A Little Time” is the second preview we’ve seen of “Tell Me How You Really Feel.” With it, Barnett has revealed an exhilarating and unexpected shift. We know to expect a new-found directness with this record, a muscularity to the instrumentation, a tenderness in her voice and a boldness to the lyrics. It speaks to Barnett entering a remarkable new phase of her musical evolution.

Listen to both tracks below.

Cowgirl Jordy debuts with twang and honesty

640 360

An accurate capture of their compilation, Shearer describes her influence as ‘half indebted to the classic country sounds of [Townes] Van Zandt and [George] Jones and half to Of Montreal and Teenage Fanclub. Recorded in true Todd Rundgren style with drums first and everything else layered after!’.

Their sound is unique but even more impressive with poetic story-telling and a true look into relatable perspectives to what many young adults face today. Listen to “Wild Bleeding Heart” by Cowgirl Jordy below.
