Playlist Alert: January Sounds is Here.

January Sounds is finally here. I would like to apologize for the delay by offering you some of the best music to hit your ears in a long time.

39 tracks, mostly spanking new music featuring Portugal the Man, Dr. Dog, Palace, and Phantogram.

If you only have time for one song “Veins” by Palace is an absolute gem. Share and enjoy.

“Steady” – The Staves



When it comes to music, I am a sucker for three things:

1) Female Vocalists

2) Whistling

3) Brother/Sister Bands

Well, two out of three ain’t bad, right?

The Staves are a trio of English singers who, over the course of 5 trips to Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon’s hometown of Eau Claire, recorded their latest. This week they released their first single titled “Steady.” It’s unbelievable. One of the best tracks I have heard in months. Please enjoy this indie-folk goodness.

WE’RE BACK! “Little Hands” – Inland Sky


Welcome to 2015 – you made it!

We’ve taken a nice little break during the holiday season, and have a ridiculous amount of material to share with you all. Buckle up, this is going to be an awesome ride. All of us at ASM are refreshed and can’t wait to hit the ground running.

January 1st, 2015 marks a new beginning. “Little Hands” by Inland Sky perfectly captures the unbridled optimism that a fresh start represents. The world is what we make of it. Take chances, live in the moment and stick to your guns. This is going to be a great one.

“Little hands, the world is yours/
hold it close with open arms,

Little feet, with miles ahead/
take is slow see it all take it in.”
