This year was much more of a songs year for us... probably having more to do with our listening habits than any lack of noteworthy albums (there are plenty) or any ominous "death of the album" that's been prophesied for at least a half decade now. Nope... We're just a songs blog, by and large. We listen almost exclusively to songs from new bands we're considering writing about. So hopefully this list will open your ears to some great songs you may have missed and reinforce the awesomeness of the ones you already know and love: [...]
When a band's soundcloud suddenly vanishes from the 'net, and old videos removed from YouTube, something's clearly afoot. That something, in this case, turned out for the moment to be Fantasy Island 's debut EP, FI . It remains to be seen if this is an album precursor of some kind (I personally know two labels and two management groups that have been chomping at the bit for a while now), but for now, listen up and listen good: FI EP by Fantasy Island [...]
Some great stuff this month. Astronauts, Etc. "You Can Yell" and Macklemore x Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" were definitely my two favorites. That doesn't mean the others weren't good...these two were just above and beyond. If you haven't heard either, you didn't have a good month. As I went through attempting to make this playlist, I found that most of the actual tracks this time are on the Spotify version...most of the best of the best were only streamable, so there's not going to be a lot listed here. Be sure to check it out on Spotify. [...]

After reading about these dudes on I Guess I'm Floating and listening to them several times...I have to second that blogger's humble opine. I can't say I've been hearing anything else quite like Fantasy Island. Take this track "Evergreen" for example. It has so many shifts and movements within it this thing is practically an onion. You can just keep peeling and peeling. The intro is melodic and stately, but that is quickly washed away in a cascade of keys that reminds me of a jaunt through a dark forest...an evergreen wood, maybe? The song continues to [...]
Following on from "Breaking A Heart" in the early reaches of December, Californian duo Fantasy Island have shared another new track - "Alone". continue reading >>
As glamorous as it sounds to be sitting in a hundred-year-old Villa in Tuscany, gazing out my hundred-year-old window pane at the snow falling on the hundred-year-old olive grove below, one must realize that the price I pay for all that antiquated charm is a not-so-charming hundred-year-old European heating system. Right now, as much as I appreciate the Italian countryside in all its rustic splendor, I can’t help but fantasize about what it would be like to walk around my bedroom wearing less than the ski suit I am currently sporting. #Champagneproblems? Maybe. So, instead of [...]
We’re big fans of LA duo Fantasy Island ( listen to the mix they put together for us last year ) - and their latest track ‘Alone’ only strengthens our affections tenfold.
Fantasy Island , the awesome new band we told you about back in December , have released a new funky jam entitled, “Alone”. The song certainly has a confident bop, but it is as chill as can be. It’s like a perfect cross between the bygone Motown era and the chillwave era of now. Also, lovely verses that have the vocals matching the riff spot on. Really solid song right here.
Word is that "Alone" will be released later this year, so enjoy the stream until then.
