Jamsday 9/1 “Work” by Hockey 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gaizwmc9u6I
Happy Jamsday, friends. A happy Labor Day as well. Enjoy accordingly; Drink beer, eat BBQ or binge watch The Office while eating pizza for the third straight day… It’s all deadly. Three day weekends are great, even more great when college football kicks off and the Noles are 1 - 0. I’m not going to talk about work because we all just have to go back tomorrow, so I will let this rad band out of Portland do it for me. I saw these guys with a small group in Orlando a couple years ago, and their sound couldn’t be more infectious. Drawing an immediate comparison to Talking Heads, I knew they had something special. This song comes off of their first album, but their second album was awesome and I know they won’t be stopping there. Have a great rest or your Jamsabor Day and enjoy “Work” by Hockey.
Cheers,
Pierce

Jamsday 8/25 “Wolves” by Dreamers 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmQy6qgV2cM
Happy Jamsday, friends. I hope everyone had a great weekend. For all that attended our Bushwick rooftop/Love Lounge party, thank you. It was quite the soiree, and we hope to have many more. This is my first post for this up and coming Brooklyn band, and the drummer just happens to be my roommate. After some re-branding and changing their name to Dreamers (formerly Motive), the guys have dawned some groovy attire and managed to keep their crunchy garage tunes. This was their first single released off the new album, set to drop 11/18. You can listen to both songs on their Soundcloud page, and below is an article Stereogum wrote for “My Little Match”, which was released this morning. I got to see their first gig as Dreamers and Nick’s voice croons as catchy as it sounds, and Chris’ on point backing vocals mesh perfect with the sultry bass line and heart pounding drum beat. Get ready to experience the Dreamers Universe. Have a great rest of your Jamsday and enjoy “Wolves” by Dreamers.

Jamsday 8/18 “Surprise” by Royal Headache 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44Pf2WpELgY
Happy Jamsday, friends. I hope everyone had a great weekend. The irony in this post is uncanny. Surprise! I have a royal headache this morning. Another day where I hate myself, hate my actions, but still love my best friends. I’m almost kind of glad this song is only a minute and half long, because my face might fall off my face. But, the song is super catchy and jams, so I take it back. The feeling of summer nostalgia kind of hit listening to this song as I watched the sun rise, chilling on a roof with 30 Bushwick hipsters, Sunday morning. It was actually quite mesmerizing, with plenty of cigarettes, flannel and “No, that song sucks, let’s play this one” to go around. So, however bad the headache, I don’t regret it, and will keep the youth alive for as long as I can go. Have a great rest of your Jamsday and enjoy “Surprise” by Royal Headache.

Jamsday 8/11 “Making Breakfast” by Twin Peaks 
http://music.twinpeaksdudes.com/track/making-breakfast
Happy Jamsday, friends. I hope everyone had a great weekend. 19 days till the presumptuous return of Florida State football. Presumptuous may not be the most politically correct term, but I’m going to leave it, because the dismantling of our opponents will be far from what is appropriate. Today’s tune comes from a great new band out of Chicago, Twin Peaks. A foursome of teenagers who seem to have classic rock & roll in their DNA. This album fucking rocks and has been playing non-stop at my abode. They are also good friends with the Orwells, who are also a teenage band from Chicago. Not sure what’s in the water their recently, but let it flow, these are some dope new jams and the garage influenced punk attitude creates crunchy vibes. With catchy lyrics layered with a catchy riff, this song is bound to be played a couple times over. Have a great rest of your Jamsday and enjoy “Making Breakfast” by Twin Peaks.

Dig Your Own Tune 8/8 “That’s Me” by Thompson Brandes
https://soundcloud.com/thompson-brandes/thats-me
Happy Friday, friends, and it’s a glorious one indeed. It’s time for good friends, cold beer and great music once again. So, what’s different with this Friday, you ask? I get to enjoy cold beer, with great music, that was recorded, written and produced by a best friend. That’s right, we got another yam yammich, from my main man, T Brandes (that was my attempt at a rhyme). Right out of the gate you get this soulful, California, beachy vibe that immediately made me want to walk out of the office, flip the bird, crack a cold one and sit my ass on a beach somewhere. There was a saying once I arrived in New York that went something like, “You never know who might be sitting next to.” Well, if you’re out on the left coast, be weary, you might just be sitting next to this guy, and you might want to hop on the train now. Hats off, dood, this one is one of my favorites. Have a great weekend and enjoy “That’s Me” by Thompson Brandes.

Jamsday 8/4 “Lady Luck” by Richard Swift 

http://youtu.be/U5Psyhlgx-4

http://youtu.be/4e4uquOfWug

Happy Jamsday, friends. I hope everyone had a great weekend, it was not as good as mine. There’s not a whole lot that hasn’t already been said, so I’ll skip my spiel on all of my injuries and how it might take me 30 days/nights to feel normal again, and just say that I have the best friends in the world. If there was a World Series of “How Cool Are Your Best Friends?”, no doubt in my mind we would take home that Guggenheim Goblet. I wouldn’t be who I am without them and I love them like Michael Burnett likes sucking down farts. Okay, now that that’s out of the way, I apologize for the tardiness of the jammage, but I needed to make sure I didn’t puke all day. You probably don’t know this guy, but you know his music. A very dope dude indeed. A well known producer in the biz, and he’s also in two bands, you may have heard of them, The Shins and The Black Keys. Yeah, this guy knows how to party. He also can surely jam out on his own accord as well. I put the live version in here, just so you can see how talented this man is. Have a great rest of your Jamsday and enjoy “Lady Luck” by Richard Swift.

Jamsday 7/28 “How We Be” by Sinkane 
https://soundcloud.com/sinkane/how-we-be
Happy Jamsday, friends. I hope everyone had a great weekend, and if you’re not excited this morning, then you must not be going to the greatest weekend known to man. That’s right, it’s Schoolboi week and the anticipation for my flight on Thursday is at an extreme high. But, since most of you aren’t eligible/invited to join in on our Brohemian Rhapsody of a trip, let this little diddy of jam help ease the pain. This song blends elements of electronica, pop and cool jazz. The bass line is really dope and I get a “I feel like dancin’” vibe. You can definitely hear his influences of working with various bands such as: Toro y Moi, Yeasayer and of Montreal. This kid has some serious talent and his new album drops September 2nd, hop on the train now. Have a great rest of your Jamsday and enjoy “How We Be” by Sinkane.

Happy Batman Day 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ateQQc-AgEM
Happy Batman Day, friends. Yes, it is indeed the greatest day of any made up holiday. But, to hell with that, this should be celebrated around the globe every year. Parades, parties, pin the tail on the Penguin… It will happen soon enough if I’m involved. I am obsessed with Batman, have been every since I saw the 1989 (the year that I was born, coincidence? I think not) film that featured Michael Keaton as Batman and Jack Nicholson as The Joker. Without Christopher Nolan (Thank you, Sir) then this would still be one of my favorite films of all time, well, I guess it still is, but as far as Batman goes, The Dark Knight series is the reason I live everyday. Although Seal’s song wasn’t featured in the 1989 film, it is by far the best Batman anthem there has been. When I was a kid, I wore a cape for years and imagined killing the bad guys whilst listening to “Kiss from a Rose”. There’s some imagery for your Wednesday…

Jamsday 7/21 “Day Glo” by Brazos 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIOQJZmUNpg

Happy Jamsday, friends. I hope everyone had a great weekend, I sure did. I did exactly what I said I would do on Friday; good friends, cold beer and great music. Oh, and I also rocked some dope new boots and you can check them out on Matt Cade’s Facebook page… But, this post isn’t about me, this one is dedicated to a dear friend of mine, Brazos Barber. I had the pleasure of meeting Braz’s father, some years ago, and I immediately knew he was a special person. Not only was he good people, but the love and affection he had for his family and their friends is something I aspire to be able to reflect in my life. Gone too soon, but never forgotten. And, to all the loved ones that we have lost, I hope they’re looking down in some sort of aspect of this line… “and juggle wine, the kind of wine that you don’t mind spillin’…” 
Cheers to you, Gary Barber.

Friday I’m In Love 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wa2nLEhUcZ0
Happy Friday, meekers. If you have any blues on this wonderful day, I’ve found your cure (see what I did there). Not sure why anyone would have any blues on a Friday… It’s the best day of the week for a reason. For me it means good friends, cold beer and great music. It doesn’t get much better than that, and I will be enjoying all three tonight. I love my friends, maybe just a little bit more than I do Fridays, so I will be enjoying the aforementioned with them… the Best Friends. Enjoy your Friday and weekend with “Friday I’m In Love” by The Cure.
