The Villain – Mesita

by Vanessa Palmer - (Contact) - June 27, 2014

Colorado’s James Cooley has earned a permanent spot on my radar as Mesita, the outfit he performs under, with which he created this spectacularly devilish cut, “The Villain”. The track will serve as the first single of Cooley’s upcoming 5th album, Infinity Sky Deluxe, to be released this Fall. We’re greeted immediately with an abundance ... Listen & Download

Envy – Bel Heir

by Carolyn Davis - (Contact) - June 9, 2014

Kollectors, you may want to be sitting down for this. “Envy” is the last single of the single-a-month campaign from Bel Heir. “Envy” speaks for itself, we envy those past months where we took Bel Heir’s singles for granted. But don’t fret because I am also the bearer of good news; Bel Heir is working ... Listen & Download

Never Gonna Let You Go – Jackson Breit

by Marisa Yang - (Contact) - June 3, 2014

It’s always a good day when Jackson Breit gives us new music! I’ve been following his career for over a year now, and he’s one of the most consistent artists that I never get tired of hearing. Even after the release of his bad ass two-part Good Times and Bad Times EP earlier this year, he’s ... Listen & Download

Gates – SPEAK

by Marisa Yang - (Contact) - May 28, 2014

The last we heard from Austin-based four-piece SPEAK was back in February, with their wintery, moody single, “This Much I Know.” Now the seasons have changed, and SPEAK gives us a completely different sound in “Gates,” one that sounds far more similar to the anthemic indie-rock of “Be Reasonable, Diane” or “Peaks.” With the distinct vocals and high-quality ...

Attica ’71 – Olivver

by Vanessa Palmer - (Contact) - May 6, 2014

We all know the Los Angeles-based band The Neighbourhood, who absolutely blew up over the past year. The five #hoodlums became four when the band lost Bryan Sammis due to unknown circumstances just a couple months ago. In the short period of time that’s passed, Bryan (who artistically goes by “Olivver“) has kept extremely busy. ... Listen & Download

Messiah (Official Music Video) – Prides

by Marisa Yang - (Contact) - April 27, 2014

You may remember Prides from their infectious anthemic single, “The Seeds You Sow,” which we immediately loved back in January. Since then, the Scottish group has released their EP The Seeds You Sow and a music video for their second single, “Messiah,” an epic follow-up to the sun-soaked radiance of the first. With a sound ripe for radio play, ... Listen & Download

Sea Salt – Sun Culture

by Marisa Yang - (Contact) - April 9, 2014

For any fans of The 1975, Smallpools, or Two Door Cinema Club, I’d like to introduce you to your newest obsession: Sun Culture. The project of singer/songwriter/producer Chase McCoy, Sun Culture hails from Nashville, Tennessee, although from the warm, summery sound it’s just as easy to imagine them on a beautiful coast. With spring here ... Listen & Download

A Different Gravity – Seaver’s Express

by Marisa Yang - (Contact) - April 9, 2014

Meet Seaver’s Express, a rising band from Boston, Massachusetts. These guys just won the Battle of the Bands at Boston College and have a close relationship with William Bolton, the mastermind behind Kollection favorite Times New Roman, so I had high hopes when I pressed play and was not at all disappointed with their single, “A Different ...
