Multi-Instrumentalist Tash Sultana Delivers Must Watch Tiny Desk Concert With Live Looping

Tash Sultana Tiny Desk

Australian artist Tash Sultana has had me very excited lately with her insane live multi-instrumental approach and uniquely awesome songs. She is a one person band playing almost every instrument on top of having an incredible voice. She is also the latest artist to be picked to do an for NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series.

She performs nearly a half hour set playing guitar as her main instrument, with a synth, some samplers and countless pedals for effects and looping. She also uses two microphones for different effects

This truly blew me away as you can really feel her emotion. Sit back, make sure to listen on speakers, put it on full screen, properly soak this one in. Enjoy!

[EXCLUSIVE] Pretty Lights Announces Epic 2-Day Mini Festival At The Gorge

Pretty Lights Live - The Gorge

Pretty Lights has secured himself amongst the electronic festival elite, headlining just about every festival in North America. He has such a dedicated fanbase that travels to see him play that he has recently begun throwing his own mini festivals which he first launched with the Episodic journey last fall with 5 stops across the US.

Well today TSIS has the exclusive scoop on the next chapter in his live journey. He has set his sights on The Gorge, an iconic venue just a few hours outside of Seattle. It's home to multi-genre festival Sasquatch and electronic festival Magnifique who had their inaugural edition last year. The Gorge has had various touring legends like Phish, Dave Matthews and Foo Fighters headline in the past. It does not typically host electronic headliners so Pretty Lights is breaking down some serious barriers here. The Gorge undoubtedly one of the most beautiful venues in the world and there couldn't be a better location for Pretty Lights to host this epic event.

The two-day event will take place from Aug. 4-5 and feature Atmosphere, STS9 Tipper, Lettuce, Cherub, Manic Focus, Chali 2na, Kasbo, Marvel Years and Maddy O'Neal. We'll definitely be making the trip out for this one. Exclusive fan pre-sale tickets will be available on Monday (Apr. 3) at 12pm PST. Enjoy!

Kendrick Lamar Goes Hard On New Must-Hear Song “HUMBLE.” + Music Video

Kendrick Lamar Humble Screen Shot

Kendrick Lamar has shared a new song off his album and we couldn't be more excited about his upcoming album after hearing this. Well this new track “Humble” confirms our speculation... HE GOES SO HARD. The epic beat was produced by Mike WiLL Made It.

It comes complete with an absolutely incredible music video and I am speechless. He literally raps about sex, money, pussy, etc all while dressed up like the pope... A complete 180 from To Pimp A Butterfly... and we love it. This obviously isn't Kendrick changing who he is, but he's giving the people what they want here and doing it better then anyone. This follows up his incredible recent single "The Heart Part 4" and now our Kendrick excitement is at al all time high. Sit back and patiently wait for what's next with this album. We will keep you posted... Enjoy!
