Featured Artist: Kyle Andrews


Featured Track: “Heart U 4 Ever”
Album: Robot Learn Love
Facebook: /thekyleandrews
Twitter: @TheKyleAndrews

You’d think someone who’s been hailed by NPR as a pop genius would record in a glossy studio, but that’s not Kyle Andrews’ style. Rather, this Nashville electro-pop wizard records his ruthlessly danceable tracks exclusively at home…but you’d never know it by how shiny they sound. Andrews’ recent releases, including the Kangaroo EP and full-length Robot Learn Love, are as precise – yet warm and fun – as anything he’s ever put out. If you missed Andrews’ hit “You Always Make Me Smile” in a Holiday Inn campaign a couple years back, you can still catch his super-catchy “Heart U 4 Ever” in the trailer for our current season of Roxy Refreshments!

Download of the Week: Hunx “Always Forever”

Although typically backed by his band of Punx, Oakland’s Seth Bogart (a.k.a. Hunx) steps out for a solo record this February. Borrowing from the best of ‘60s garage pop and girl groups, Hunx’s upcoming album, Hairdresser Blues, is full of hyper-catchy garage pop tunes like “Always Forever” that we can’t stop playing over and over. A hair stylist himself, Bogart sings from the heart on this concise collection of hits, so if you’re looking to beat the winter blues by bouncing around the room, this is the record for you!

Featured Artist: Brian Jonestown Massacre


Featured Track: “Straight Up and Down”
Album: Take it From the Man
Official Site: brianjonestownmassacre.com

While it’s likely that most common word used to describe Brian Jonestown Massacre is “infamous,” the group’s brilliant music far outweighs whatever outrageous shenanigans have been attributed to them throughout their nearly two-decade stint on the scene. Led by indie rock royalty figure Anton Newcombe, BJM have been mesmerizing and alienating audiences since forming in San Francisco in the early ‘90s, and their signature psychedelic sound hasn’t lightened up much over the years. Listen for their track “Straight Up And Down” in the trailer for the upcoming feature The Water Dancer, starring surfer Stephanie Gilmore.
