RAC (remixed artist collective) is well known for putting an upbeat yet chill spin to plenty of artists’ tracks ranging from Tokyo Police Club to U2.

Johnny Drennan is a University of Tennessee sophomore from Nashville. Last year, he was a contestant on American Idol, and since then he’s begun pursuing a career in music with his younger sister, Olivia. Here’s an original song titled “I Should Know”
The jingly-jangly track “Little Talks” was just put out by sextet Of Monsters and Men… I’ll put a hundred bucks down that this track will be on some Target, Apple, or Prius ad in the near future. The playful back-and-forth banter of the female and male vocals is extremely reminiscent of the Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros‘ track “Home” (not coincidentally they seem to get compared to the band quite often). It comes as no surprise that these talented six hail from Iceland, the small nation that has since spit out other extremely talented musicians such as Sigur Ros and Bjork. You can stream the new track below. Enjoy.
New, purchasable Jack White single off of his upcoming “debut” (not sure if I would call it his debut album, he’s already had a lot of experience in other projects) album titled Blunderbuss. The album represents White‘s first time releasing solo material. You can check out his website here.

I know what you’re thinking. Quirky, catchy indie rock? Really? Yeah, I thought it was extinct too… But of course, some bands still need to supply Apple with catchy commercial music. Enter Hospitality. A Brooklyn-based trio (of course they’re from Brooklyn).
Arrested Development fans should be familiar with the appearance of Alia Shawkat AKA Maeby Fünke. Besides the stereotypical image/background of the band, the track is actually pretty good… and damn catchy. Don’t be surprised to hear it in a commercial or indie flick soon.
The young Belgian Drum & Bass producer dropped an incredible new track via renowed D&B label Hospital Records. The track takes a while to peak, but when Netsky finally gets in his zone, the energy is incredible—it’s one of those few tracks that will just fill a room (or a pair of headphones) with spirit and excitement.
Do yourself a favor and stream + download the incredible track below. ENJOY!
