killthemusic

“When you listen to this record, I won’t be as presumptuous to say that we’ve captured the “sound” of Oakland in our little nine-song record. The best that I can hope for is that it gives you a 31-minute glimpse into the Oakland music communities that we’ve found for ourselves, for Trace Repeat.” Experience Oakland through the eyes of 6-piece Oakland based funk and soul band Trace Repeat in their guest blog on Kill The Music here.

Substream Premieres The Sometimes Island’s “Can’t Move On”

7BFB3918-EE82-4E0F-987A-54AE4D2319E7

The Sometimes Island is premiering a second track, “Can’t Move On” from their upcoming EP exclusively on Substream.  The single is equipped with dreamy harmonies, synth tones, and a bass line perfect for summer nights.  Lyrical content courtesy ofMatt Blankenship Jr., the man behind The Sometimes Island, really shines in this track that tackles the struggle of being between two feuding exes.

“Two very close friends of mine were dating, and when they broke up I was in the middle of it, hearing both sides and feeling very torn. Those sentiments channeled into this song, written from each of their perspectives. The inability to communicate – with battle lines drawn and pride on the line – made me feel a little like a cloud floating over a battlefield. This song was my way of dealing with it, using the music symbolically to put in little silences and finally an explosive, dramatic bridge.”

Keep an eye, and an ear, out for the full EP set to release July 28th.  The Sometimes Island will also be heading out on a West Coast tour later this summer.
