Artist: Cory Wong feat. Louis Cole
Song: The Grid Generation
Album: The Lucky One

This song bursts with high energy and grandiloquent flair, featuring an explosion of horns and propelled forward by the mesmerizing beats of Louis Cole on drums. It’s from Cory Wong’s upcoming album, The Lucky One, out August 18! On Collaborating with multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Louis Cole, Grammy Award-nominated songwriter, producer, and guitarist Cory Wong says: “Louis Cole is a once-in-a-generation talent. He’s got a singular voice on the drums and it brings so much energy. The way he approaches rhythm on the drums is very similar to the way I approach rhythm on the guitar. Louis and I have talked for years about the fact that we are growing up in a generation where so much music is made ‘on the grid’ (to a metronome). Oftentimes, modern musicians snap their music right on the grid and it can start to feel lifeless; but Louis and I have an approach of recording on the grid, but letting the grid breathe. I think it’s important to keep the human elements of rhythm and the push-pull energy that naturally happens when we play our instruments.”

Artist: Foxtide
Song: Hold On

This vibrant new single is from Southern California garage rock band Foxtide’s upcoming third EP. On the inspiration, frontman Elijah Gibbins-Croft says, “Hold On’ incorporates influence from early 2000s garage rock while bringing something new to the table. The track is really a song about nostalgia, self-doubt and forgiveness. While the verses are a conversation between oneself, the chorus is simply asking someone’s forgiveness.”
