“Gold in the Summertime” by Matt Nathanson

Matt Nathanson - PumpTheBeat.com

Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to the surefire jam of the summer. As far as I’m concerned, Matt Nathanson has been relatively irrelevant since his 2007 hit “Come On Get Higher”… until now. His brand new single “Gold in the Summertime” blends an old-school beat with clearly invigorated vocals and gives all of us another reason to be happy it’s summer. As the first single off of his upcoming album, Nathanson sure gives us something to look forward to. But for now, grab your speakers and head to the beach, the pool, or wherever your summer haven is and let the good vibes flow.

Native to Italy, he has toured all over the world with numerous groups. Currently, he resides in New York where he was inspired to produce a new sound under Porcelain Raft. His years of experience played a significant role in his unique psychedelic sound. His debut Strange Weekend has received critical acclaim for its dreamscape soundscapes and compelling delivery.

“Cheerleader” by Timeflies


We are now another Tuesday away from some brand new Timeflies music. For this Timeflies Tuesday the guy’s went after the recent radio smash “Cheerleader” by OMI.

Album: “Choose Your Weapon” by Hiatus Kaiyote


Hiatus Kaiyote’s new electro-psych jazz LP debuted 22nd on the 2015 Australian Charts. The quartet is fronted by guitarist/lead singer Nai Palm with Paul Bender on bass, Perrin Moss on drums, and Simon Mavin on keyboard. Choose Your Weapon is an extremely diverse album made up of numerous genres including slow jazz, R&B, funk, and electronica all textured with dream-like chill wave.

“Within the context of a playlist, any one of a dozen songs here could bridge ’50s bop to ’60s MPB, or ’70s art rock to ’80s boogie, or ’90s neo-soul to 2000s dubstep. Equally remarkable is that none of it seems devised. It’s like these musicians simply radiate the stuff.”” – All Music (4.5 / 5-star review)

With just two greatly admired album releases, the band have caught the attention of celebrated artists  such as Prince and Pharrell. Check out future tour dates in the link below.
