Thoreau – Afraid

“Afraid of never having friends I can trust.”

This track entered my inbox at the perfect time.  I am doing a shit ton of purging lately.  Mostly with friends because I am SINGLE AF, so I don’t have a love interest making my life difficult!  I just don’t have time for the negativity anymore, nor have I ever and I am at a stage in my life where it’s just not cool to be raging every week, picking arguments and acting childish.  I want nothing more than the utmost respect and anything less is out the door.  At a certain point you have to grow up and if your friends, or just any relationship you have in general isn’t following that lead or you are falling off the pages with them, it’s time to move on.  There are plenty of fish in the sea whether it’s with love or friendships, don’t waste your time.  I think we hang on to negative relationships in fear of being alone, as humans whether you want to admit it or not being alone is scary, but you have to be able to understand what being alone is in order to truly conquer your fears.  You can only trust yourself at the end of the day, trusting yourself makes it harder to be afraid of the decisions you make.

I am really diggin’ this track for the chill vibe, talking about a deep message that has meaning for all of us.  I like that, chill, yet deep.  It’s much easier to connect to a deeper message when it’s being delivered with a chill attitude.  Good stuff!  If your week didn’t start off too hot, I believe this will get you on the right track.  Own your life and your decisions and remember you deserve all the best so purge the assholes and move on!

Bronze Whale – Gold Grain ft. Jet Horns

Austin based duo Bronze Whale, consisting of Aaron Jaques and Benny Alley, are no strangers to the music scene. The guys have been continually paving their own way whether it was remixes, original content or artwork that they create themselves. More recently the guys discovered their abilities in singing and songwriting when Benny decided to hop on a track. Since then their sound has started to flourish, incorporating indie electronic music with soul elements and even some hip hop in the drums.

On their last track ‘Patterns,’ the boys received an upload from Mr. Suicide Sheeep, a premiere with Magnetic Magazine, a Hype Machine #1 and also got it licensed with Play Network, distributed in Korea and in Apple Music’s Today’s Chill.

Now the boys follow it up with their release ‘Gold Grain,’ featuring Jet Horns on part of the production along with Benny on the verses. The song bounces with wth minimal elements from their signature breakbeat drums to Benny’s unique voice and pulsing saw synths. With such a signature sound and lots of content ready, you can be sure this will be a good year for the Bronze Whale duo.”

Oh hey there! It’s been a while, but I am here for you today to deliver an exquisite Summer track.  Ok so it’s not exactly Summer, but you understand what I am saying.  The Summer vibes are everywhere right now.  Rooftop parties have started, ladies in sundresses, dudes rockin’ muscles tee’s and sporting their favorite kicks.  People are much happier when they aren’t freezing their asses off and I couldn’t have been happier myself to receive a track in my inbox that symbolized everything we all are feeling with the sun rays upon us, ( sorry Cali people you don’t count, you are spoiled with that sunshine everyday!)  If you want to get more of what you are hearing then check out the fan link!

I have some more exciting stuff to share.  I think I have mentioned that I wrote my first book and I am shopping it to agents as we speak, so for now you cannot get a copy, but you can keep yourself updated.  So check out my Instagram @mollieerin14 and check out my website Single AF World,because once all is said and done I will be giving away some free EMPT merch and Single AF merch!  Exciting right?!  Almost as exciting as Summer (wink wink).  Enjoy this fabulous Monday and if you aren’t then put this baby on repeat! xx

LEVV – Hands On Me

This track speaks specifically to a situation that we are facing today here and now.  This track is a true story that speaks on sexual assault, about the artist who trusted someone who stole her trust.  This is such a touchy subject, but one that many of us are finally speaking out about, I know I am.  I am also a victim of sexual assault, it is a subject for so many years that I was afraid to face, afraid that someone might call me a liar, or maybe I was just being over dramatic.  That’s how many of us were made to feel right? #metoo, it’s something everyone should be taking very seriously.  I want my tiny little daughter to grow up in a world where she won’t have to worry about anyone taking advantage of her beauty inside and out.  Hopefully we can all make this world a safer, in the work place and outside of it as well.  I know that I am trying to get my message out there.  I recently finished a book about being a single parent and some of the tough shit I had to go through in my life that has allowed me to be a strong Women able to bring up a daughter on my own.  Until the release of the book I hope you will follow my blog correlating to the book along with the social media to get you hyped for the release! www.singleafworld.com  

I hope more artists such as LEVV make music with messages such as this because people really resonate with music and lyrics in a beautifully emotional way.  Please take a listen to this, listen to the message and whoever you are, Women or Man, be respectful, enjoy life and remember that we are all trying to make our planet a wonderful place for the budding generation of little humans!

Cazzette – Run The World (PLS&TY Remix)

Oh hey!  It’s been a while since I have written.  Just like the title of this track I am out here trying to “run the world”, so to speak, it’s a full time job and life has taken me in many different directions.  I guess you could say I am trying to juggle it all and figure out how to give myself more arms and legs in order to get it all done.  I am very much into the vibe of this track and the “caffeine” boost it gives me for the weekend, it is Friday right?  See what I mean, I am losing track of the time and days with everything I have going on, some exciting stuff that I can’t share quite yet…

PLS&TY is quickly becoming one of the most distinguished stars of the Future Bass world today. Remixing classic RnB and hip-hop tunes to sublime effect, rising forward-thinking producer PLS&TY has already amassed tens of millions of plays on Soundcloud alone and hit the #1 spot on the HypeMachine charts an unprecedented thirteen times – and all this in the space of just one year. 

With influential tastemaker blogs profiling his work on a regular basis, releases for distinguished labels like OWSLA, Dim Mak, Disruptor Records/Sony Music Entertainment, Island Records, Wind-Up/Concord Music Group and more, his chilled, wavy electronic production has won him fans right the way around the world. “

Hope you are excited for the weekend and if you aren’t yet in weekend mode this track should do the trick. xx

Cardiknox – Bad Boys

“Why do I fall for the bad boys, maybe I’m not such a good girl.”

This song speaks to me.  I mean literally it’s telling my story in terms of my dating life.  It’s actually kind of a depressing subject , maybe more dark comedy, but this track really gives the subject a happy feeling.  I cannot stop listening because the lyrics just ring me in to very recent situations.  I am not really sure why I go for the bad boys.  It’s a question I ask myself all of the time because I am not a bad girl, in all honesty not to toot my own horn but you would think I would be the type of girl most men would want, well nice men.  The bad ones don’t care about loyalty, honesty, and pure love.  I dated nice guys before but always got bored with them, isn’t there a happy medium, like a bad boy with nice tendencies? Who knows, I am probably asking too much, but for some reason I do keep going back to these bad boys, these narcissictic assholes who charm me like crazy in the beginning and then fizzle into their true self ones they see the love in my eyes.  I am sure a therapist would tell me I have daddy problems or something way to obvious along those lines.  I think I just like the adrenaline rush, these bad boys sure do keep me on my toes!

I am really digging the vibe of this track and whether you are in the most amazing relationship (I hate you..just kidding), or like me and still longing for that sexy bad boy…or girl, this one’s for you friend! xx

Parker – Spark EP

I really dig the surprise in the track, you will hear it around 46 seconds and what you think is going to happen doesn’t.  When I first took a listen I assumed this was the moment the big techno beat was going to come in for probably a solid 30 seconds but much to my surprise it was more of a beat drop, some cool effects and a really dope/chill rhythm that I could really vibe too without feeling too hyper.  Well done, I love a good surprise.

Everything that “sparks” the world today has been a surprise.  At this point we should all expect the unexpected.  I am glad that music is still keeping me on my toes with tracks such as this one but in terms of the world, nothing surprises me anymore, in fact the bigger the situation the less surprised I am.  Shock factor is what the world is all about right now, turning us all into robots that are unfazed.  Sad, but I think there is still so much to look forward too if we can look beyond the drama.

Really enjoyed receiving this track in my inbox, I hope gives your Monday the start to the week that you have been looking for, that element of surprise that you might need in your day, enjoy! xx

CHEF BAER – Summertime (feat. TeaMarrr)

It’s official. Summer has ended and I couldn’t be more pleased.  I love Fall and the vibe of this soulful track brings me there with the leaves slowly falling off the trees and the winds picking up giving me that cool air that I have been craving oh so much.  I haven’t been posting as much lately, been leaving the responsibilities up to our other wonderful writers.  Reason being that I am currently writing a book that is due on January 1st and trying not to break my focus but alas I have some writers block and need to turn my attention somewhere else for the moment so that I can get out of my head and take a little vacation to write about music.  I feel like this Summer has been about a lot of electro pop, dance tracks.  I needed something a little more relaxed, with some deep meaning.  The lyrics are the female version of so many men I know, hard to trust, always scheming, totally full of themselves.  Maybe it’s the world right now and everything we are influenced by that is taking away the ability to be honest and real, thank goodness I haven’t lost my realness through all the “plastic” changes, you know what I mean.

I hope everyone is enjoying the change is seasons as much as I am and the chill vibe of this track to balance the mood. Shout out to our readers for staying as loyal as you always have. Happy Fall!

Darci – Seeing Colors

Darci delivers, no disappointments, thanks Darci!  I always look forward to a Darci track, this one sways a bit different then some of the rest but it immediately had my body moving as I sat at my computer opening music submissions. It’s indie pop, but I am definitely feeling an R&B vibe as well, it’s mixed in so well that you may not notice upon first listen but listen again and you will see what I am saying, FIRE!

I am seeing colors more and more these days.  Obviously in NYC you see colors all around in terms of everything, the people, the lights, the buildings, etc. etc.  But I am talking about colors in the sense of the world just becoming more vibrant for me, more exciting, not dull at all, it’s been a sensory overload since I got back to NY with my daughter and I am embracing it as I find that fucking rainbow with all it’s colors and that damn pot of gold, I am gonna get it I swear, just watch me.  I am staring straight at it and I am not breaking my stare.

It’s crazy that Summer is more than half way over, sorry for reminding you all, not going to lie Fall is my favorite season but this track has me thinking back to beginning of Summer and I’m driving through the memories like a speed racer to where I am right now.  Really feeling this track, I know you will too, so press play and enjoy the weekend!

Transviolet – The Hamptons

This track is very fitting for my Summer thus far.  Yes, I have spent almost every weekend in the Hamptons, BUT I am not doing all the typical Hampton activities, honestly it’s a nice convenient get away that costs me nothing, but the gas I have to put into my car.  When you live in NY sometimes you just need to recharge the battery and that can mean just driving an hour upstate, to get that fresh breeze from the ocean and get a slight change in scenery.  If you are a true New Yorker after about two to three days in the country you are missing the concrete jungle.  I am attempting to get my mind in a place where it wants to start dating again, I am a true believer that are entire selfs have more than one mind, we think with different parts of ourselves.  So a part of me is like, girl get your cute ass out there and start dating, then another part of me is like I don’t need the stress of it and I don’t have time, so which part of me is going to win, there are bets being placed so jump right in if you like a good bet, HA!  Tall, dark and handsome (and smart), where are you!? Maybe you are in the Hamptons but honestly I doubt it, I am sure I will stumble across you when I least expect it so in the meantime I am dreaming about you while the Hampton beach breezes lull me to sleep.

I am really digging the vibe and the non-apologetic generosity of images, in the lyrics of this track, so press play and enjoy!

Thoreau – Bronze Whale x Popeska – Imagine Ft. Tom Aspaul (Thoreau Remix)

This song reminds me of being about 19 or 20 years old and partying at the Rockstar mansion in Los Angeles. My days of clubbing and partying like that are way over, unless of course someone invites me on a special Vegas trip or something similar then I might just have to say YES!  I like to live a life of YES but I think as you grow up a world of saying YES to everything can get pretty complicated.  So now a days I like to “imagine” what it might be like to say yes to everything, do everything sexy smile that comes my way, to every party invite, every adventure.  Wouldn’t that be nice?!

I have to actually remind myself that I need to spend less time imagining and more time doing, doing all of the things my little heart desires.  I don’t believe that there should be anything in this world that holds you back but I think sometimes we all get stuck in the moments of our “priorities.”  I put the word priorities in quotes because sometimes we really just need to rearrange about every few weeks or so before we get so stuck in a routine that our imaginations get lost in the consistencies of life, and that’s no fun!

I am going to put this one on repeat and start living in my imaginations and making them reality, enjoy!
