Belgium producer and multi-instrumentalist Halibab Matador (founding member of YellowStraps) releases first single as a solo artist.
Inspired by the FKJ song of the same name, Skyline was originally a hip-hop/jazz remix of the song created a few years ago, before Halibab Matador created a composition based on the original sound, injecting soulful guitars, synths and vocal samples.
“I’ve had ‘No Tellin” ready for a while but it wasn’t the right time. Country music needs a club banger, so I finally said to the team ‘Let’s drop it!’,” said Jones. “I’ve tested it on tour and with my DJ’s homies and the reaction is always real swell. Shout out to Chris Stevens and my guy Mars who helped bring those drums to another new level.”

HUEMEN Strive For Royalty With New EP KING, Out May 9
“This song was an outward expression of what’s been in me. Kingly mindset. King Talk,” says NFinity about the track. “This wasn’t me claiming I need a crown as of yet, this was vocal royalty. I looked deep within myself. This is why in the first verse I started with ‘If I think it, I can have it, if I dream it I can grab it, nothing is stopping me.’ This was a sink or swim record. I also wanted to inspire the King in others, when they’re saying these lyrics, they’re empowering themselves. King is a mentality, not just a position of power. The king comes before the crown.”
Listen to John Andrews & The Yawns’ “Never Go Away” ahead of the release of his new album, Love For The Underdog – Out April 28th on Woodsist
John Andrews is something of an open secret in a certain corner of the music scene: a versatile musician & animator. A film school drop out whose work hat-tips tradition as much as outsider anti-aesthetics. He’s spent over a decade on the DIY circuit, playing early house shows alongside then up-and-coming peers Weyes Blood and Daniel Bachman. Today he is still out there projecting his sketchy hand drawn animations during his performances in coffee shops, small galleries and non-traditional venues. Andrews’ painterly approach now introduces us to his version of New York City, the place he was bound to end up after years of dwelling in Pennsylvania farm towns and New Hampshire barns. There is handmade vibrancy to the world he’s imagined for us here: intimate moments seen from the interior, looking outward from hole-in-the-wall restaurants, theaters and the fragments of peace found within the restless and dirty street corners.
Discrepancies Release New Single “Recovery”
Southern Rockers 13South drop second single “High Enuff” from their upcoming self-titled record High Enuff.
“‘High Enuff’ is a tongue-in-cheek song, a call to arms for youth and the old schoolers still in their prime. Hopefully everyone else is reminded of that first taste of freedom of letting go of the cares of the world before you feel the weight of the world later in life,” said Chris Blevins (co-founder).
AVE Have Unleashed Captivating New Single, “Let Down”
“The song ‘Let Down’ is about a toxic relationship that makes the other person feel worthless,” the band shares. “The type of relationship that logic says you should get out of, but something keeps you there. It is inspired by a real-life relationship and details the emotional rollercoaster that happened. The song is available everywhere along with a music video. This song is for anyone going through a breakup, or anyone who just loves modern pop-punk vibes.”
