On Repeat: BOYS FOREVER

Last year Patrick Doyle, former drummer for British indie pop band Veronica Falls, released his debut as Boys Forever with a really great self-titled album. We just recently caught wind of how great this record is and now it’s in heavy rotation. Listen to the instantly catchy closing track “Underground”.

Though Doyle is from London, he recorded the album in sunny Los Angeles and he shot a video there for the standout track “Voice In My Head”.

Boys Forever is out now on Amour Foo Records.

TORO Y MOI – Omaha

Toro Y Moi contributes to the Our First 100 Days compilation for the 13th day of that tyrant’s presidency. So far, the comp has also featured great artists like Angel Olsen, PWR BTTM, S. Carey and more.

“Omaha” is a lovely, introspective piece that is quite good. Along with the new track, TYM added the following statement:

“Im not a political person. I’m not an activist. But I’d like to show my support somehow. Do you think we’re stuck in a system? The more we can educate ourselves on race, sex, and religion the better. Just be decent. Stop the violence.”

With Trump’s first 100 days in office upon us, action must be taken to protect the causes that will come under threat from this administration.

Our First 100 Days seeks to aid in that protection. Joining together with artists and labels we will be releasing one rare, unreleased or exclusive song per day to you via Bandcamp.

For a minimum contribution of $30, supporters will be able to access all 100 songs in the project, including new music from Angel Olsen, How To Dress Well, Toro Y Moi, The Range and many more.

All profits raised from Our First 100 Days will go directly to organizations working on the front lines of climate, women’s rights, immigration and fairness.

The project was started in conjunction with Secretly Group and 30 Songs, 30 Days, and aims to raise funds and awareness for organizations supporting causes that are under threat by the proposed policies of a Trump administration. This project is produced with the help of Revolutions Per Minute, an organization that provides strategy and support for artists making change.
