WATCH — Cigarettes After Sex On NPR’s Tiny Desk

December 14th, 2017

“It’s easy to get lost in the myriad of live sessions that magazines, radio stations and other media offer to artists. They’re a great way to see a band you love in a new light. NPR and their Tiny Desk Concert is one of the best of these formats and when Cigarettes After Sex came along to play the TDC there was an expectant hush.”

NEWS — Anchor FM Is Coming

December 13th, 2017

“A quarter of Americans listen to podcasts each month, but far fewer make them.

Anchor is a startup that is looking to change that with its app that makes it easy to record and distribute content. Anchor also has a discovery platform, which allows users to find audio across categories like news, sports, music and tech.

“We built the product to be the easiest way to create, share, and interact with audio,” said Anchor CEO and co-founder Michael Mignano. “We’re seeing more and more regular people want to jump in and start creating audio.”

It’s not just a record button, Anchor also allows for users to make calls directly via the app, facilitating a podcast conversation with multiple parties. It also enables listeners to dial-in and participate.

Anchor also has the rights to music tracks through partnerships with Apple Music and Spotify. And it’s not just the Anchor platform, everything can be posted on Apple podcasts, Google Play and devices like Alexa.

“Audio is having a moment,” said GV general partner M.G. Siegler, about why he invested. “We’ve seen this with the rise of Amazon Echo, Google Home and Apple AirPods. Anchor is one of the companies in prime position to take advantage of all of this and move the audio space forward, in particular when it comes to interaction and production.”

Anchor is available on Android and iOS.

LISTEN — Rhye’s “Count To Five” + Tour Dates

December 13th, 2017

“The delicate, sensuous Los Angels project Rhye has been steadily releasing tracks over the last few months; we’ve posted “Please” and “Taste.” Now we’ve finally gotten word on the impending release of Rhye’s second album, the follow-up to the 2013 debut Woman. The new album is called Blood, and it’s coming in a couple of months. In a statement, frontman Milosh says, “We’ve spent the last few years on the road translating the Woman album from a bedroom project into a full live experience. With Blood, it’s been the opposite process; the music and sounds were really born out of the live environment and are built for performance.” They’ve also shared the lightly funky new track “Count To Five.” Listen to that and check out the new album’s tracklist below.”

WATCH — Ezri’s “Be Right Back”

December 13th, 2017

“To win the hearts of hip-hop purists, Ezri unleashed his video “be right back,” which showcases his precociousness on the mic. “I’m afraid of losing my mama’s support/ She’s disappointed because I’m smoking marijuana for sport,” he ruminates over the booming track. The stirring visual finds Ezri entrapped in some troublesome activities with his boys. While he desperately tries to decipher what’s right and wrong, he ultimately follows his heart.”

Live a day in Ezri’s shoes. Watch the video below.
