Lotte Kestner

"True Faith" (New Order Cover)

Love this. 

Here is the OG version. 

Check out danceyrselfclean, great blog


Lotte Kestner, True Faith (New Order cover found on her fantastic covers album “Stolen”)

Really Lotte Kestner has so won me over and I’m pretty certain she can sing her order at a Chinese restaurant and I’d want to play it on repeat.  I definitely would love to hear her duet with Matt Berniger, her version of “Fake Empire” is pretty epic and well she can do some New Order like the best of them too.  ”True Faith” sounds damn great with Lotte at the covering helm.  Seriously check this one out!

Model’s Can’t Fuck

"Give It Time"

MCF is the one man band project of Hungarian based singer/songwriter Árpi Szarvas.  Taking his cues from artists like Pink Floyd, Eno, Kraftwerk, and Giorgio Moroder, he blends a surprisingly modern take on late 60’s psych and 70’s electro.

Check out his 3 song Move To Iceland EP on bandcamp.

Young Man

"Then and Now"

Audiotree Live Session + mp3

Loving this.


Last night was the second time I was lucky enough to catch these talented young gents live. With Chicago’s Young Man, fronted by 22 year old Colin Caulfield, the brilliance runs deep and the need for special effects are minimal. It’s truly a pleasure to experience a live show that out shines an artist’s recorded work. Doesn’t happen that often. Listen to this amazing track above and watch the live recording below. So good.

Blake Mills


Big thanks to IGIF for introducing me to producer/writer Blake Mills.  This brilliantly arranged/recorded pop gem takes a Fleetwood Mac-esq turn for the better.  This one is gonna stick around on my short playlist.

"Don’t Just Sit There"

An engineer friend of mine tipped me off to the beautiful vocals of Brookyln four-piece Lucius last week and I have been blissin’ out to the catchy lead single ever since.     

You should grab their self-titled EP off their website and be sure to check them out this week during SXSW.  They are sure to generate some buzz.

"Night Faces"

This is how you do stripped down and honest…with talent and passion.


Doesn’t this sound like if Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham never joined Fleetwood Mac, and instead retired to a small farm where they continued to herd sheep for a living and occasionally sing by the campfire?

Hundred Waters


Back in May of last year I had the honor of producing a 7” for Hundred Waters at Stadium Red in Harlem.  We recorded alternate acoustic versions of Vistor and Caverns from their debut full length.  

Yours Truly was on hand to capture the gorgeous solo piano performance that followed, just the second and final take from Nicole.
