L.O.V.E. Culture – FLUIDITY
L.O.V.E. Culture is a local collective of young artists who came together to create a new project called FLUIDITY. The group is made up of Cheech Foreign, Rob Mari, EASY, Spirit and Flash the Samurai, while the album was produced by 1VARTS. FLUIDITY, despite preconceived notions about their young age, feels like a much more mature work, giving insight into Jacksonville cityscape and the culture surrounding our community. The 40-minute work is solid from start to finish, with a broad range of musical styles converging to make something amazing. If you’re looking to check out FLUIDITY yourself, visit L.O.V.E. Culture’s Soundcloud page and give it a listen.

Plastic Pinks – El Animal
Miami-based Plastic Pinks are that good old kind of face-melting rock that makes you wanna shotgun a PBR tallboy and crush it against your skull … which always seems like a good idea at the time. The band is comprised of two brothers from Puerto Rico, Augie Pink (rhythm guitar/vocals) and June Summer (lead vocals), as well as Rod Woolf (lead guitar), Trevor Mustoe (drums) and Dane Giordano (bass). What makes this new release all the more worthy of your precious time is that some of the songs for the EP were mixed by Gordon Raphael, who produced The Strokes first two albums. Give their new EP a listen via their Soundcloud or Bandcamp.
