Song Of The Day: ProJect Aspect - Custie Bear

Denver-native Jay Jaramillo is well known in the Colorado scene under the moniker ProJect Aspect, but with dope tracks like "Custie Bear"off his recently released album Automagically, he's clearly shown that he can cast a wider net. According to Jaramillo, "a lot of emotion goes into writing tracks for me. The biggest opportunity to express my rawest of feelings and lay them all out on the table. I write songs to perform them live. Nothing make my heart happier than playing live music and connecting with new people."

ProJect Aspect has performed alongside such artists as EOTO, MartyParty, VibeSquaD and NiT GriT, and at such festivals as Sonic Bloom, Wakarusa and Global Dance Festival.  Jaramillo is currently touring in San Francisco with back-to-back shows today and tomorrow at the Icon Lounge with JOBOT, and at Folsom with FreQ Nasty, Wick-It the Instigator, and Sleepyhead, before returning to Colorado for a New Years Eve run.

You can download "Custie Bear" and the whole Automagically album for free at 1320 Records, and check out all of ProJect Aspects's tunes right here.

Song Of The Day: Lotus - Massif

Image Courtesy of SCI Fidelity Records
The five-piece Philadelphia-based progressive electronic jam band Lotus have just released the first single off their upcoming album Build, "Massif." The album, their eighth overall, and first since 2011's self-titled Lotus, will be released on February 19th. In the 13 years since the bands origin in Indiana, the group's sound has traversed a broad array of influences, changing styles, and the adoption of vocals. Yet a crucial component to what defines Lotus sonically is their driving energy, apparent at every live performance, and certainly found here in this single.

Having recently announced their 2013 Winter Tour, Lotus is gearing up for New Years Eve at the Rams Head Live! in Baltimore, with shows in Chicago and Pittsburg. After a brief, and well earned break, the group will return with shows in Burlington, Boston, New York, leading all the way up to March where they will be performing back-to-back nights in Atlanta, GA, and will likely be ready to announce their Summer plans.
