Deaton Chris Anthony shares “I Shake That Ath” ahead of Friday’s ‘Boogy Woogy’ EP release

“I Shake That Ath” is yet another eclectic, perfect sample-heavy pastiche of early-to-mid 2000s and 90s references from Deaton, all pieced together with a gleeful sense of impishness and a radiant positivity. With tinny, programmed percussion, a blown-out beat, and high, cutting synths, “I Shake That Ath” recalls early noughties club-ready hip hop as Deaton Chris Anthony dispels the insecurities of knowing people are talking about you and embarks on a journey of self-love and celebrating successes. The release follows previous singles, “I Love All My Friends,” Deaton’s ode to his friends, and the UK Garage-indebted “Tuethday” featuring Baby A.

New Music From Jacob Banks “The Devil That I Know” Out Now On Interscope Records

The stripped-down production of “Devil That I Know” highlights Banks’ emotive vocals. His rich baritone trembles over delicate piano lines and wordless hums as he sings: “We can’t get any higher / We can’t get past messiah.” His songwriting is always captivating, but he shines brightest when he’s singing about the knotty complexities of love, as he does here. The video captures something similar, as Banks and his new bride drive through the countryside tailing cans from their sedan as small elements of doubt, doom, and danger appear and subside.

‘I Dare You’ from singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Estella Dawn


Nashville’s Zayde Wølf has released “Born Ready (Reimagined)” a reinterpretation of one of Wølf’s most beloved songs “Born Ready,” from his debut full length album Golden Age. “Born Ready (Reimagined)” is part of a series that sees Zayde Wølf mastermind Dustin Burnett reinterpreting some of his most popular songs. “Last year I hit one of those songwriting walls,” says Burnett on how the concept of the series started. “I couldn’t get over it. No new idea seemed compelling. I was listening to alot of soundtracks and started writing mini orchestral type themes and song ideas and mixing those with my older songs. The best news is that these reimagined songs have helped me break out of the creativity slump.” Wølf will be releasing an EP of these “Reimagined” songs on October 30th.


Lanterns On The Lake Share New Track “The Realist”

Of the track and EP vocalist Hazel Wilde says: “The Realist is a song about being a dreamer, clinging to a vision and following your heart – even when that path can seem deluded to others. It was one of the songs that didn’t make it onto the album Spook The Herd as it didn’t fit sonically or narratively. It felt like it came from another place. So we began putting together this EP. We wanted to sculpt an intimate “headphones” record. One for the introverts and dreamers, the ones that still find beauty and magic in things. Recording some of the songs over lockdown in our homes helped in creating that world.”

Singer/songwriter/producer Sven Gamsky, known as Still Woozy shares the lyric video for his recently released track “BS” today. On cozy, self-produced song Woozy invites his listeners into his soul – he shares honest lyrics about “struggling with his brain,” as he puts it, but ultimately bringing the best version of himself to the people he loves. “BS” is Still Woozy’s second single of 2020, arriving in the misty wake of April’s “Window,” which Earmilk recognized as “a promising first step of the new decade that expands on his groovy DIY aesthetic while maintaining a touching intimacy” and NME called a “party-starting DIY banger[s].” Watch the lyric video HERE.
