youwont5

Back in November, Old Flame duo, You Won’t set-up shop at Audiotree for a little while to throw down a handful of tracks from their debut album, ‘Skeptic Goodbye.’ Being described as, mournful and pop-minded, Audiotree went on to talk about the hidden power and emotion found within You Won’t's sound and how the band has the personality and potential to be the next big thing in the indie world, we agree.

Sleeping Bag & Rozwell Kid: 'Chincilla'

Off of their collaboration EP entitled, ‘Dreamboats,’ the brand new video for Sleeping Bag & Rozwell Kid’s track, ‘Chinchilla,’ has just premiered on Esquire.com. Describing the EP as a, “sunny disposition from the fuzz, reverb, and simple power chords inspires the kind of affection you’d normally reserve for Weezer’s Blue and other alt-rock gems from your teenage years,” Esquire went on to talk about how the video transforms, “beloved snack foods into demons.”
