If the name Topher Mohr sounds familiar to you, it might be because he's spent the last few years working with the great Mayer Hawthorne. Or perhaps you came across his incredible debut Phlotilla. 2014 finds Topher Mohr working on his solo project yet again, which, unsurprisingly, is as good as you'd expect. Today we're premiering the song "Do You" (in the replies), a smooth R&B track with a hook that will probably leave you wanting more. Luckily, Mohr is currently working on a new EP, so keep an eye out for that in the foreseeable future... and enjoy this great track for the time being!

It was pretty similar to what I would have done [when writing a song] on my own. Except when I was putting the music together I was maybe thinking of making something a...

I'm very excited to share a brand new music video from one of my new favorite bands, Souvenirs.

This is your favorite band you haven't even heard of yet. Head to the replies to check out their video for "A Mile High", off their debut album You, Fear And Me out December 16th via...

Out October 7 via Animal Style Records is Wolves At Bayís latest EP, When Iím Dead, and you can stream the release in its entirety in the replies. The band lists Thursday as an influence, and I think thatís a fair comparison ó they also take cues from the gruff vocal stylings of acts like Hot Water Music and Polar Bear Club, and generally walk the familiar ground of fiery, loud, intense music written by angry, angsty young people. Itís a cool EP, and you can preorder it digitally here and on cassette here.

There was a time when I owned newfoundglory2.com and updated it with news about the band because I didn't think their official site had enough information or media on it. I think that was sometime around 1999. I checked once after I let the domain expire and it was redirecting to some spam site; however, I believe it's now officially dead and gone. While I doubt that I'll be playing necromancer on it anytime soon, I can use this site to premiere a track from New Found Glory's upcoming album Resurrection. If you hit the replies you can stream "Stubborn" and be pulled back in time to when pop-punk and AOL Instant Messenger went hand in hand. Like what you hear? Make sure you've got the...
