Ruby My Dear released their Balloons EP (their second) last month, and while their press release mentiosn everything from “skilled use of catchy melodies” to “amber-pop sensibilities and unconventional instrumentation of Adult Jazz”, what you want to focus on is just the music. Compliments are of course welcome, but you want to know if it moves you first. If the good words did move you, then watch the video made for the EP’s title track. If you sense “odd meters” and “complex basslines”, then come up with your own salutations too.

VIDEO/FREE MP3 DL: Allusondrugs’ “Am I Weird?

Their press release calls them “psychedelic alt-rock-grunge-pop weirdos” but I will simply call them Allusondrugs, a group from West Yorkshire, England. They’re trying to make a name for themselves and they’re hoping that this song will the bridge between them and you, the new listener. Their song is called “Am I Weird?”, a bit funny since the press release calls themselves but are they truly weird or is that a sense of humor to break the ice and discover who and what they really are? Find out for yourself. If the video moves you and you want to take the song with you on your travels, there is a free MP3 that awaits if you head here.

FREE MP3 DL: Scarf-ACE featuring Ralph V.’s “Pesos”


I’m not sure what rapper Scarface will think about hearing about a guy named Scarf-ACE coming out with his own music and career, but perhaps if needed, Scarf-ACE can have Scarface’s old name Akshen and become Axsh-N. Until then, let’s check out Scarf-ACE and a song that welcomes Ralph V. into the fold with “Pesos”, which both are hoping to make in bucketloads.

Or something like that. House this.
