KennyHoopla – Lost Cause// (ft. grandson)

Has a pinch of Goth, a hard dance beat, and slightly distorted vocals. The chorus has a very infectious melody. Grandson elevated the track to a more modern dance number with the beat and haunting elements. Grandson also made the chorus hit harder and added other elements like the guitar and his voice to really propel it.

KennyHoopla (aka Kenneth La’ron) is Wisconsin-based performer. Grandson (aka Jordan Benjamin) is a Canadian/American alternative artist.


[verse 1 - KennyHoopla] 
Be my baby, be my girl
Have my baby, have my girl
Running crazy, run your suburbs

There's a bounty?on my neck
If they catch me,?they get a check
Never give them no respect
'Cause all authority have told me

[Chorus - KennyHoopla & grandson]
You're just a lost cause
She said, "I know how people like you end up"
And if I die young
I was born with a target on my head
Yeah, yeah, yeah
With a target on my head
Yeah, yeah, yeah

[verse 2 - grandson]
You're the best worst thing that's happened to me
Don't give it up, no way, pass it to me
Not a flash in the pan
You're a flash bang
Actually in the backseat laughing at me
94 Porsche you were giving me trouble
Not too slick and you're not too subtle
Windows down getting high when we're going
Through the tunnel
Trip and I slip in the puddle
On my own for a moment
But you don't wanna hold it
So you damn near froze it
Feeling me composing
Imma swipe down on a knee, derose it

For fans of: Twenty One Pilots

Rey Pila – Let It Burn

One of my favorite finds this year is Rey Pila. Think a cross between Sparks and The Presets with a splash of Interpol for good measure. Their latest release, ‘Let it Burn‘, which was produced by Dave Sitek (TV On the Radio), is my favorite track from them thus far. However Disciples IV is a very close second.

Rey Pila is a four-piece band from Mexico City. Rey Pila translates to ‘King Battery’.

Here is a track from the Sparks: Here is a track from The Presets: Rey Pila: Rey Pila Disciples IV: Rey Pila – Anxious

Welcome Center – Is This All There Is?

Think a cross between Death Cab for Cutie and LCD Soundsystem and you land pretty near to this new releases from Welcome Center. This number has expressive vocals, rocking drums and synth elements. Dig that plucky bassline and Jesse Smiths’ voice riding high over it. Welcome Center is Jesse Smith and Aaron Sternick.
