Première: Red Little Hands (Only You Know) by Le Days

Some speculate that the ulterior energy underlying the creative process of Le Days is a peculiar process, while others feel it is an esoteric journey of self-actualization, well then, meet Daniel for yourself — the mind behind the sonic madness of an age on the cusp of death.

Daniel has been experimenting with music and the intricacies of the arts for well over a decade and is in the perpetual process of utilizing himself as a conduit to the cosmos in order to show the universe his introspective vision dripping with a raw, and dangerous vibration of artistic freedom.

Here is “Red Little Hands (Only You Know)! A difficult watch, but equally as gripping in a stripped down, and artistic sense. Also, the music is mesmerizing as well, mind you. Now please sit back, and enjoy the newly released track off Le Days’ new project.

On “Red Little Hands (Only You Know)” Daniel takes us down a deep and painful journey few have ventured down. With stripped down acoustics, Daniel invites the listener to travel with him down the deep and dark rabbit hole. And includes a black and white visual that seems obsessive and somewhat gaunt — while provoking dark thoughts and the struggle of living inside of them.

And fret not, for the vocals of liquid gold will flow through you like a fine wine, and at times will seem as if they are on the verge of breaking you. But fear not, for the abyss of Le Days is little for than a black bed of velvet and plush pillows.

Max Bien-Kahn – Wrong Time [SRTV]

Tonight we bring to you a lo-fi track about loneliness in the city. Here is Max Bien-Kahn, and his lackadaisical psych-rock anthem infused with subtle undertones of rockabilly — “Wrong Time”. The song also features vocal harmonies from the lovely Esther Rose and Camille Weatherford (of the Lostines).

Max Bien-Kahn is a songwriter and multifaceted musician based out of New Orleans, Louisiana, where he is the bandleader and creative force behind Max & the Martians. “Wrong Time” is the closing track off Max’s most recent release (under his own name), On the Floor EP. Check it out on Spotify.

Friendly Faces – Why Do I Care [SRTV]

Tonight we bring to you an alternative psych-folk project out of the Windy City of Chicago. Here is the lo-fi bedroom track, Why Do I Care by Friendly Faces. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did. It’s an infectious little tune. Now roll one up, sit back, and take a load off. Friendly Faces will do the rest. Just relax.

The group consists of Cameron Goulder and Griffin Mang who write and record all of their own music. And although the aesthetic is exceedingly mellow in nature — we feel that this song would make for a beautiful background track as the world crumbles and burns to the ground in total chaos. In closing, the imperfections throughout are what makes this track simply perfect.

Give the project a listen on Spotify — they’ve got a slew of good stuff!

Man Tau – Green Bananas [SRTV]

Today, we’re airing Green Bananas by Man Tau. The underground track is a lovely antiquated melody in low fidelity. A true psychedelic slow-burner that evolves throughout — eventually erupting in a gritty guitar solo that will simply make one feel weak at the knees.

The song digs deep, and so should you. Now, take a listen and get lost in the sonic vibrations of Man Tau! Or what he likes to call — rainbow rock!

Being born with a heart (that was too big in all senses of the word), the past life of Man Tau was filled with numerous surgeries as well as a rocky childhood. But instead of giving up and throwing in the towel, Tau bounced back, listened to his above average heart, and made the choice to transform his emotions of heartbreak into music that may very well change a life, or many lives for that matter.

Keep up with Man Tau by giving him a follow on Instagram!

The Eclectic Selection Ft. Binker & Moses, Blume, Central Heat Exchange, and Hezzy Brae

Binker & Moses

Eccentric London jazz duo Binker & Moses are joined by artist Max Luthert on loops and electronics, who moved the eclectic sound into a more ambient & experimental space, while still staying true to the duo’s roots in riff-heavy free-form jazz.

Their latest track “Feed Infinite” is the projects first fresh material since their 2017 album “Journey To The Mountain Of Forever”, and its subsequent live albums “Alive In The East?” and “Escape The Flames”.

“Feed Infinite” was recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Studios by Max Luthert, who shifted the sound into an alternate universe that seemed to cross into the ambient, yet minimalistic and experimental space of jazz, whilst infusing elements of electronic music.

Binker and Moses are amongst a loose yet interconnected group of London-based jazz artists that are influenced by the music that surrounds them. Keep up with the project on YouTube.

Blume

“Just Take” is the first track off of the new album ‘In Reverse’ — released back on November 19. The mutating album consists of ten sweeping tracks filled with plentiful psychedelic goodness and experimentalism.

The writing and recording process took place in a dark little apartment spare room, in Downtown Edmonton, in the springtime of 2021 — and attains a more upbeat vibration in comparison to some of Blume’s heavier and hazier arrangements of the past.

“By the end of the process I was left with ten songs that I was pleased with. I feel like these ten songs take off where the previous album left off, but continue to grow into something new while still being familiar.”

And we feel the same. The nostalgic essence of Blume is almost too much for us to handle. The glistening soundscape seems to ripple with every pulsation. It’s a sonic spectacle to behold. It’s almost like we’ve heard it before.

Central Heat Exchange

Central Heat Exchange (C.H.E.) is an eclectic collaborative indie project — the primary individuals are Adam Soloway of Living Hour, Santiago RD of Daphne Tunes, and Jacob and Paul Stoltz of Varsity and Pool Holograph, though their forthcoming output involves an even broader network of artists.

Recorded in 2020 across thirteen different bedroom studios, the eleven tracks on their debut project explores themes of communication, companionship, separation and collectivism. And now, here is the blissful “Cold”, a frigid track filled with fragmented luminescence.

““Cold” is a dark & expansive psychedelic experience, and I wanted to create a video with cold colors and constantly morphing shapes to match. This was my first music video incorporating video feedback, which involves pointing a camera at its own monitor, tweaking camera placement and color settings, putting things in front of the camera, etc. It was a pretty pure and rewarding early experiment with the technique. I added Adam and my floating, singing heads into this world to complete the video.” — Jacob Stolz  

Hezzy Brae

Hezzy Brae is an eclectic and diverse recording artist out of Baltimore, Maryland. His melodic flow over the beat in low fidelity is as smooth as whipped cream dripping down a hot fudge sundae.

It’s good smoking music if your’e sitting by the beach, or anywhere really. And although it borders on the fringe of pop music, we still felt the track belonged in the Santa Rosa universe. Now take a listen. It’s a slow burner.

“Wanna get high when I’m already high but I wanna get higher.” Ah yes, the conundrum of the ancients still plagues us with its pestilence to this very day. Now go forth, and prosper.
