(๑ ऀืົཽ₍₍ළ₎₎ ऀืົཽ)✧ ‘Get Happy’ is a song we recorded one day in January 2014 but laid to rest as we got lost in the commotion of touring and moving to separate cities. As the year progressed, we found our live show intensify but still had all these softer recordings which would never be released. Hence we present Get Happy / Get Happier, where we explore both sides: the original demo and a fun, double-time edit made one day in August.

It’s been way too long since we were blown away by someone from around here, but we feel like these brilliant throwback soul jams from Crowley’s Leon Bridges are pretty undeniable. We don’t know much about Bridges at this point, and it’s hard to believe that this kid channeling a young Sam Cooke comes from our own backyard, or anywhere, but we can’t escape the promise of greatness we keep hearing in his timeless songs. Recorded in Fort Worth and produced by Austin Jenkins + Josh Block of White Denim; download “Coming Home” + “Better Man” below:
Download an adventurous, very deep lil’ pre-CMJ-warm-up mix from one of our favorite new producers/eternally shining cave diamond, Lexington’s Ellie Herring. Ellie says the mix is made up of “sounds that remind me of a lot of things I’ve <3′d about this year so far“, so immerse yourself in the aqueous future vibes below, and catch Ellie live along with TOPS, Saint Pepsi, Tei Shi, and Lydia Ainsworth next Thursday night at our CMJ party.
