There is nothing quite like a beautiful, soul-infused anthem in the middle of the summer. Corey Harper will provide you the soundtrack to happiness in the form of "California Sun." The 21-year-old singer/songwriter has taken us to great heights in his debut single (and video) for the track, instantly hooking us to his blissful blues and pleasant guitar melodies. The vibe is reminiscent to that of Stevie Ray Vaughan or John Mayer, creating an accessible and emotionally invested art that we just had to put on your radar.

"I'm not going anywhere fast 'cause you always come right backYou remind me of the California sun. I don't feel you as much when I get drunk."

Feelings are subjective so there's no definite with how you will feel while watching the new music video for CHCKLK's "Rising Up." The artistic video consists of the depiction of life and death whether they are meant to be taken literally or symbolically. One thing for certain is the fact that it's serious. Right off the bat, the story starts with an execution scene and puts emphasis on how something is coming to an end. As a gun is pointed at a man's head, the scene cuts to beautiful landscape shots of a forest. From there, the camera pans over a group of friends standing around a dug-out hole, CHCKLK waking up in the middle of a desert and running into himself as a separate being, and the previously-mentioned group of friends attacking the executioner before he can shoot the main character. Not being hyperbolic here, but the video for "Rising Up" has one of the most intriguing stories for a music video that we've seen in a long time. The last frames of the video show the words "Kids of the Forest" and "Rise Up" which is an ode to his collective.

On "Rising Up" CHCKLK had to say:

"We seek fulfillment in different ways, but is it possible to ever be ready for death? Some live monotonously, praying for excitement before the end. Some live on the edge, praying not to fall off. But no matter how we live, is anyone ever truly ready to die?"

Stellar Young is a 5 piece band from Upstate New York made up of Dave Parker (Bass), Tim Brosnan (Drums),  John Glenn (Vocals/Keys), Erik Flora (Guitar/Vocals) and Kyle Hatch (Guitar/Vocals). You could call Stellar Young "rock" but that doesn't really do their sound justice. John Glenn's voice stand out by being unique and songs are driven by chord-y guitar parts. On top of that, harmony vocals are always on point and extra percussion adds an extra little flavor.

 

 

The Woodstock Sessions offer you an experience you can't get anywhere else. The sessions take place in Applehead Recording Studio and allow fans of an artist to experience an in-studio live performance that will later be turned into a live album. In between takes, there is usually a meal and moments to meet the musicians themselves. What more could you really ask for? The Stellar Young session was a pair recording with another band called Northern Faces. Some past bands featured have been the legendary punk band Bad Brains, the Black Crowes' guitarist Rich Robinson and Chino Moreno's side project Team Sleep.

"Rations" is the latest music from the group since their 2014 album Vessel. Vessel was appropriately recorded previous at Applehead back in the summer of that year. Woodstock Sessions Vol. 5 comes out August 12 -- Listen below to the brand new song "Rations" and tell us what you think!

Electro pop duo Chairlift are back with another solid single. Happy Friday!

The track is called "Get Real," but isn't the first we've heard of it. It's been heard played live in a handful of instances, and, in fact, the two tweeted about working on a project with the same title almost three whole years ago. A resurfacing? Perhaps they tried to scrap it and simply couldn't. Perhaps they were waiting for just the right moment to drop it...

Anyways, "Get Real" is as real as it gets, and we're thankful a studio recording has finally unveiled. You can hear it below.

Last month, Bibi Bourelly and Earl St. Clair dropped a soul infused single, "Perfect," what we haven't gotten enough of. The label mates are simply kindred musical spirits, combining their powerful voices together to create a sense of euphoria. The energy continues with a visual element to "Perfect," showing the two in their respective places engulfed in white. But, as the lyrics state, "you're a little too perfect for me," things start to lose their shine and the "perfection" is masked by an aesthetic completely different... Slightly disturbing, but point proven.

Check it out above. We'll just leave this here...
