Today, UK-based trio GoGo Penguin (pianist Chris Illingworth, bassist Nick Blacka and drummer Rob Turner) release the new single “Ocean in a Drop,” taken from their new EP Ocean in a Drop: Music for Film (out October 4th via Blue Note Records). The track follows the first single “Time Lapse City,” which was acclaimed by BrooklynVegan, Jazziz, and EARMILK, who praised the band’s “reputation of producing groovy, jazz-tinged music with an astounding level of creative vitality.”
“People aren’t always upfront about the way they feel,” says John The Blind. “Love and sex would be a lot easier if everyone was transparent. [‘The Running’] is about what I was going through. The woman I was dating knew the whole time that it was never going to work out and kept me in the dark.”
The Outfit, from Chicago, have been creating a buzz since coming on to the rock scene. Their first single “Soldier Boy,” released in 2018, secured the #34 spot on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart. The band isn’t re-inventing the wheel, and it never tries to; that’s its charm. The three words to describe the band are Original, Bold, Rock. The Outfit shows they have the chops of veteran musicians, yet the forward thinking attitude to make an impact with a fresh unique sound for today’s music scene.

FINNEAS Releases ‘I Don’t Miss You At All.’
Today, 22-year-old songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and artist FINNEAS, returns with “I Don’t Miss You At All,” another moody and infectious cut taken from his highly anticipated debut EP, Blood Harmony, out on October 4.
“LOVE U” highlights the inimitable vocal interplay between the group’s members as hypnotic harmonies bounce over buoyant production. Everything builds towards the cheeky, clever, and catchy chorus, “I really wanna love you, but I can’t say the word I want to, because they won’t play it on the radio, but I know you know.” Meanwhile, will.i.am adds a new dimension altogether to “WHO DO U LOVE?” Not only does he flip the beat, but he provides his own slick and swaggering verse. In addition to clocking a cumulative total of 22 million streams, the original has been rising the chart at Top 40 Radio heading towards Top 25. This achievement cemented Monsta X as “only the second K-Pop group ever to enter the Top 40 Airplay Chart.”
Samm Henshaw releases soulful new track ‘Only One To Blame’
Harnessing a transcendent vibe, ‘Only One To Blame’ sees Henshaw deliver four-and-a-half minutes of rousing soul music. An undeniably feelgood affair, the track’s lyrics confront mistakes made in the past, while remaining ultimately positive for the future. It follows on from last month’s ‘The World Is Mine’, a well-received single draped in classic soul sensibilities, displaying a musical maturity far beyond Henshaw’s years.
