Home Alone Skyfall Dots

Home Alone

On the new release Home Alone picks up those same blown out sunglasses with his trademark “dark sun” feel. Tracks like “Melon Collie” transcend the desert wonderer, thirsty for H20. Instead, the consumption is colored dots in the sky and you eat them to survive. The new album Crumbs was just released on the wonderful Bad Pop label out of Mexico. A very choice decision on Thomas Mazurkiewicz part, aka bluntastic supreme. If you missed Teddybears & Weed which came out earlier this year, I encourage you to nab that as well. Both releases have soul searching instrumentals that end up dropping into memorable hooks, showing off Thomas’s super cool vocal delivery; a stone bleached, pass out style, which finds you laying downtown in the park. I’m really enjoying the track “Swaying” off this new joint. He’s clever with his beats, which gets me almost every time. Nab both releases for free.

Notyou, May Is In Love

Sometimes its just fine to tell someone how you feel. The new Notyou,may song “Wine” does just that. There are words on the walls if you stop for a second and read them. You might find the word love hanging from a tree branch in the yard you ignore everyday. I think we all spend a grip of time trying to figure out what the hell it is we’re all doing. But this seems tolerable if we are in love, sharing wine with that person, exploring the riches of our ethos. There is very little in life as strong as the bond you form with the person you try to spend most of your time with. It’s nice to hear a song that openly sings about that. Being in love and talking about it can’t help but be cheesy, but the courage to do so makes you unique. Notyou,may is Allan Vizzuett, co-founder of Matinée as Hell, and Bad Pop Records.

Please don’t smoke, its bad for your health.
