Drop by #hidden-gems and you’ll see a track that @velvor considers to be one of the best songs ever. It’s not the first time Bob Moses has been mentioned on The Needle, but it’s hard to ignore when someone makes a statement that includes the words “best ever”. Bob Moses is a duo originally out of Vancouver, B.C., but are based in NYC and are turning heads worldwide including Turkey...where they perform just 5 days before Thanksgiving. Here’s Bob Moses’ ‘Before I Fall’ released on his latest album Days Gone By under Domino Records:

Speaking of Domino Records, some Arctic Monkeys was dropped in the #indie bucket last week. It’s been 10 years since “I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor” came out and that’s good enough reason to let it play. Not much more needed to say about a name probably familiar to most. Rock on…

What else is going on?

 

You may remember a couple weeks back when the ‘PopcornTime for music’, Aurous, released their beta to the public. Well, not surprisingly, a Federal Judge in Florida has since ordered that it be temporarily shut down during the trial that the major record labels are bringing against it. Surprisingly (maybe?), Aurous is actually suspending downloads of its app. We’ll have to wait and see what happens from here...


Despite the fact that his label doesn’t have an agreement with Soundcloud, Kanye dropped two new tracks on there anyways for the first time in a couple years. You’ll see the news of his new tracks everywhere you go, so you might as well just listen to them...it could actually be more work to try and avoid them. Here’s one of the songs, “When I See”:

Also, for you #metal fans, if you’ve got $5,000 extra bucks, now’s your chance to own your own label. There’s one for sale on Craigslist.

Don’t sleep on…


It’s a good week for Vancouver I guess. #house producer Jack J. who hails from Vancouver and puts music out under the D.C. label, Future Times, has it. Released back in July, his track “Thirstin’” came on a 12” along with another jam called “Atmosphère”...both of which I assume had their fair share of airplay at underground house venues across the globe. Whether or not, #house is your genre of choice, I’d give this one a listen and see if it won’t force your head to bob:
