posted by Oscar December 6, 2017

2017 was an unconventional year in new music for POD favorites Twin Peaks, who slowly but steadily shared an album’s worth of material, two songs at a time starting with “Tossing Tears” back in June. Today the group has shared the final two tracks that will complete their Sweet ’17 Singles series compilation album.

The album brings together 12 songs in total, with the last singles released today being “In The Meadow” and “We Will Not Make It (Not Without You).” While the 7-inches were only available to the 300 people who bought the subscription, all 12 songs will be compiled and released as a limited edition 12″ on February 9th via Grand Jury.

Listen to SWEET ’17 SINGLES below. Continue Reading

Portugal The Man

Portugal. The Man have also paid their respects to the late David Bowie, sharing their cover of one of his songs. The Alaskan group have released their rendition of Bowie’s “Moonage Daydream,” while also speaking of just how influential The Thin White Duke has been on their own career.

The tribute came with the following description on SoundCloud:

A few years back we were working ‘Moonage Daydream’ into our sets. It is impossible to explain the impact that Bowie had on our lives. Every ounce of our being has been influenced by him. He has no peers. Thank you David, for giving us these great gifts.
