Best Coast - The Only Place

The LA based duo are back with their second studio album The Only Place. The catchy sunny pop album is a nice addition to the summery weather this weekend. Check out the California themed title track. 

Why would you live anywhere else?/ We’ve got the ocean, got the babes/ Got the sun, we’ve got the waves…

Sol - 2020

Over the past few years Sol had been working hard trying to break into the hip-hop scene. Born and raised in Seattle, the 23 year old Universty of Washington grad is now moving up North American charts with his debut release “Yours Truly”. His “Dear Friends” EP gained him some momentum in 2011 and his 2012 album debuted  strongly at #1 on the iTunes hip-hop chart. 

With his down to earth style, Sol delivers meaningful hip-hop paired with soulful, uplifting beats. If anything, Sol is an artist on the rise. His credits include opening or shared performances with Wu-Tang Clan, Mike Posner and Seattle’s Macklemore.    I hope there’s more to come from Sol. He certainly seems to think so: “Let’s get it straight/I’m on the rise/And I can only trust me, myself and I.”

His previous EPs can all be downloaded for free here: http://solsays.com/media
