#skoaradio 10/31/2015 liner notes
When a new song comes out of nowhere and suddenly becomes your favorite.

When a new song comes out of nowhere and suddenly becomes your favorite.

Happy Halloween broadband buds!
Gotta say, the jams in this week's #skoaradio are so good it's SCARY! hahahaha oh boy am I bad at #relevantcontent sometimes but WE'RE HERE TO TALK MUSIC ANYWAYS SO WHATEVER. I dug up some spooktacular new tunes this week from Sinden, The 1975, Jamie Woon, MALAA, and more so it's a pretty damn good mixtape if I do say so myself. Lots of new music out this week so I hope you weren't planning on buying your family any expensive Christmas gifts because you're about to exceed your budget on music for the zillionth time.

Don't forget you can grab the Spotify playlist at the bottom of this post so you can treasure the order I painstakingly put these songs in. Or you can hit shuffle. Whatever.

Until next week!



[Listen] The Neighbourhood - "A Little Death"

A few weeks back The Neighbourhood gave us a brand new track in the form of "Let It Go", a song that will be included on both the band's debut album and a 7" single called "Thank You". Now, the band has dropped the b-side to "Let It Go", a subtle, brooding number that fits right into the band's current repertoire. 2012 has already proven to be a standout year for The Neighbourhood, so let's see how 2013 goes. Stream "A Little Death" below.

We here at SKOA have been fans of The Neighbourhood from the get-go (how could you not be with a song called "Sweater Weather"?), and things are coming together nicely for the band. First, they re-released their debut EP and now they've signed to Columbia Records with a full album in the works. "Let It Go" is the first new material from the band since signing to Columbia, and they're clearly not fucking around. Serving as the b-side to the upcoming 7" single "Thank You", "Let It Go" has a tinge of hip-hop to it, whether it's in the instrumentals or the psuedo-rap stylings of Jesse James Rutherford. In the end, it all works surprisingly well. Check it out below.

California outfit The Neighbourhood have a single EP to their name, but they are one of the most promising discoveries of the year. Now, the Newbury Park, CA quintet are working on their debut full-length, and in the midst of recording they churned out a new version of their song "Female Robbery". The result is a much more gritty song, with distorted vocals and much more prominent percussion coming together with heavy-hitting delivery.

Along with the reworked version of the song, the band has released a new version of the video for "Female Robbery". Much like the song, the video is similar to the original with its use of found footage, but the end result is a grittier, darker tale. Watch it above.

You've seen us obsessing over The Neighbourhood for a few months now as they've slowly introduced themselves to us track by track with songs like "Female Robbery" and "Sweater Weather". Well now you can be a full-fledge fan with us by grabbing their debut EP I'm Sorry in exchange for the ability to receive updates on your soon-to-be favorite new band.

The band has a couple of dates in California this month. Make sure you have a look at the dates over on their Facebook page.

I just can't get enough of The Neighbourhood. After obsessively playing "Female Robbery" until I swear I was dreaming the song, the band is back with a new track, "Sweater Weather". The lyrics are sweet, the melody is soothing and dark, and the vocals give you goosebumps on the back of your neck. I can't wait to see what else this band has up their sleeve. They are slowly climbing higher on my list of new favorites of the year.

Once you've enjoyed the video above, make sure you grab the track here.

Last week, Newbury Park, CA quintet The Neighbourhood released the video for their single, "Female Robbery" from their upcoming debut EP that is slated for a late March/early April release. The song is dark, dismal and peppered with paranoia but also incredibly infectious because by the end of the song you want to put it on again to enjoy its hazy guitars and steadily churning percussion.

Looking forward to hearing more from these guys. Should you find that you enjoyed the video above, make sure you grab the track below.
