Ryan Scott Graham is no stranger to an instrument, or an album. The musician releases music with State Champs, is the former guitarist of Good Luck Varsity, and has released his solo projects' second album.

Under the moniker Speak Low If You Speak Love, Graham has dropped a collection titled Nearsighted with Pure Noise Records today. The projects' first album in three years chronicles his expansion and growth in the time between collections.

Pick up your copy of the album here, and find what Graham had to say about it below.

[imgfull] [/imgfull]

"Working on 'Nearsighted' was an immense process. I wanted to experiment in a big way with my songwriting and my drummer Drew and I sat with each song for days, weeks, (even years on a handful of tunes) just toiling with each chord progression, making sure every note had purpose. I'm older now, and I'm always looking for new ways to express certain ideas, so I really feel we captured that with the sound of this record. It's different enough to be interesting and fun, but still the Speak Low I think many have come to know. Our producer Aaron Marsh took these songs and really changed the game. It was a pleasure working with an artist I've looked up to for years." - Ryan Scott Graham

<![CDATA[Inbox Jukebox #026 – The Ramona Flowers, DYLYN, iamhill + Rafferty]]> http://idobi.com/news/inbox-jukebox-026/ Fri, 19 Jan 2018 13:30:44 +0000 Tom http://idobi.com/news/inbox-jukebox-026/ http://i.ido.bi/assets/post/2018/01/image-150x150.png The Inbox Jukebox is the new column bringing you fresh new tunes and bands.... [blockquotefull]So...basically, we're having a 80s orgasm on today's Inbox Jukebox. Enjoy:[/blockquotefull]
The Ramona Flowers - "Strangers"

[imgfull][/imgfull]

Gotdamn, The Ramona Flowers just made our day. Their 80s groove "Strangers" will get you funk'd up. The song may have released in Nov of 2017 but it hit our inbox this morning and we can't stop dancing in the mirror. This is the tune that'll get your fingers popping and your hips wiggling all day long. As for the strangers you meet, well, they'll just have to join you.

[youtube][/youtube]

DYLYN - "Wolf"

[imgfull][/imgfull]

"Wolf" by DYLYN should come with a warning sign—bring on the flashing lights, blaring like we've entered a red light district of killer 80s synths and lethal leather stilettos clicking out the beat. This track is beautiful but deadly and we're all in. DYLYN says "misery loves a hot guy" and "Wolf" is a serious man eater. Press play because it's game on.


--



iamhill - "Give It A Rest"

[imgfull][/imgfull]

When "Give It A Rest" kicks in you have no idea what's happening. The track literally swallows the vocal like a woman being shushed...but then that same woman takes centerstage and takes over. iamhill says the vocals have, "...this ‘fuck it’ vibe that I couldn’t throw away." We say hell yeah. "GIAR" is defiant—peppered with 80s R&B atmosphere, a pounding heartbeat going womp, womp, womp, womp and the growing growl of a rock-chick who can't be bothered with the bullsh!t...other than rocking you hard.


--



Rafferty - "White Flower"

[imgfull]
[/imgfull]

Remember when it was "a nice day for a White Wedding"? Rafferty is taking us back to 1982 in order to rock us into 2018. This time around, it's a nice day for "White Flower", Rafferty's latest is sex inside a guitar lick. It's all about rebel 80s beats, a Billy Idol-reminiscent rumble, and riffs that roar. You know how we said we were having an 80s orgasm? Well, this is the sonic climax.

What better way to kick off a weekend than with new music? Fridays are always chock full of the latest songs and albums ready to be the soundtrack to everyone’s antics, and here you’ll find some of the week’s standout releases. Whether you’re ready to spin an anticipated song from a favorite artist or just taking a look at what’s out there, there’s a whole lot of tunes to dive right into. Who knows—maybe you’ll find your next obsession.

Fall Out Boy - Mania


Fall Out Boy has emerged from the Chicago hardcore scene, became a staple in pop-punk, survived a break-up, saved rock and roll, and with their sixth full-length, Mania, it feels like they’re just getting started. Mania leaves no time for filler as the output only offers 10 songs, but those 10 make a huge impact: “Wilson (Expensive Mistakes)” is a career defining song for the band, while “Heaven’s Gate” proves that frontman Patrick Stump’s vocals only get better with age.



The Chainsmokers - “Sick Boy”


twenty one pilots have been MIA lately, so The Chainsmokers are coming in hot to capitalize big time. The duo’s latest single, “Sick Boy,” drops their patented EDM act for a glimmering pop anthem—definitely something out of the handbook of Tyler Joseph mixed with a little of Jon Bellion. It’s a change of pace for the “Closer” stars—but one that hits just as hard as their material usually does.



Justin Timberlake - “Supplies”


It’s tough to come to terms with but we should probably just accept that *NSYNC is never coming back. The good news is that Justin Timberlake’s new track “Issues” sounds pretty dang close to what the group may have sounded like in 2018 anyway. The latest Man of the Woods song is yet another Neptunes-produced number and the first time they’ve worked with solo JT music since his Justified debut. With a light hip-hop feel, Timberlake’s pop vocal lines never miss a beat.


Waterparks - “Not Warriors”


For a pop-punk band, Waterparks are proving to be quite eclectic when it comes to their upcoming album Entertainment. “Not Warriors”, the third song released from the LP thus far, takes Entertainment in another new direction for the band—a healthy dose of rock with added electronic vibes to bring their uniqueness to another entertaining level.



Moose Blood - “It’s Too Much”


Releasing the closer of your album before its release date is almost like a “spoiler alert” for music. Sometimes people want that kind of surprise and, for Moose Blood fans, it might just give a little bit of insight into what the record is all about. “It’s Too Much” is an emotionally-charged rocker with a steady guitar line before it bursts open in its bridge, ending a record that will hopefully pack as much power as the track that finishes it.



Betty Who - “Ignore Me”


Betty Who is an artist impossible to ignore. With her pitch perfect pop, she’s been one of the most exciting musicians in the genre—with two excellent LPs to boot (her latest, The Valley, came out last year). Now, as an independent artist, Betty’s letting her creativity flow free. “Ignore Me” is a simplistic dreamy tune with strong points vocally that highlight her pride, power, and conviction.


Circa Survive - “Chances Are”


To raise money for the ongoing relief effort in Puerto Rico, Circa Survive is doing their part by releasing a cover and donating all proceeds to the cause. They’re taken on Bob Marley’s “Chances Are” in a collaboration with Dub Trio to give the island tune an alt makeover. It’s a surprise to no one, but frontman Anthony Green is a natural when it comes to making a song his own—with his singular voice—and he does so here with ease.

Head here to pick up "Chances Are" and donate to the hurricane relief effort for Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.



Bleachers - “Alfie’s Song
(Not So Typical Love Song)”


Marking the first material since last year’s album, Gone Now, Bleachers kicks off 2018 with a bang with “Alfie’s Song.” Taken off the soundtrack to the upcoming film Love, Simon, musician Jack Antonoff was born to pen feel-good songs with substance. This infectious pop number is nothing new when it comes to what Antonoff is known for but it solidifies his chokehold on the genre.


Of Mice & Men - Defy


Losing a vocalist is never easy—oftentimes a band just becomes a shell of themselves with someone new at the helm. For Of Mice & Men it was the departure of frontman Austin Carlile that led to the band’s fifth studio album, Defy. Stepping into his shoes is bassist Aaron Pauley. Pauley helps keep things familiar, but what’s important is the band’s metalcore is hardly watered down—they’ve got a new lease on life and Defy proves it with every riff.


Dashboard Confessional
- “Heart Beat Here”


It isn’t realistic to expect the Dashboard Confessional of old on Crooked Shadows, the band’s first full-length in nearly a decade. Still, the latest track, “Heart Beat Here,” shows that some qualities are never lost, no matter how much time has past. Dashboard fans may remember that the song was actually released in 2016 as a sneak-peek into what Chris Carrabba was cooking up in the studio, but this official album version just helps make the new era a reality. The Crooked Shadows single is an optimistic acoustic tune with Carrabba laying his heart out on the line, and that’s when Dashboard is at their best.



Other new releases:
AWOLNATION - “Handyman”
The Decemberists - “Severed”
Troye Sivan - “The Good Side”
Alvarez Kings - “The Other Side of Sadness”
Editors - “Magazine”
Maroon 5 - “Wait” (Chromeo Remix)

<![CDATA[Killing Time on Tour that Won’t Kill You: Guest Post by Marianas Trench Guitarist Matt Webb]]> http://idobi.com/editorial/killing-time-on-tour-that-wont-kill-you-guest-post-by-marianas-trench-guitarist-matt-webb/ Thu, 18 Jan 2018 13:00:17 +0000 Tom http://idobi.com/editorial/killing-time-on-tour-that-wont-kill-you-guest-post-by-marianas-trench-guitarist-matt-webb/ http://i.ido.bi/assets/post/2018/01/Screen-Shot-2018-01-17-at-17.06.52-150x150.png The road is my favourite place to be, but the void between shows can... [/imgfull]

The road is my favourite place to be, but the void between shows can suck. How does Marianas Trench pass the time you ask? Like this…

#1. GAMBLING


I’m not talking a seedy casino here. Both band and crew get daily per diems. A little cash to buy some food, catch a movie, take a cab, whatever. Intelligent people would spend this money on important things, like breakfast. But more often than not, you’ll find all members of our organization huddled around a riveting game of LCR. Basically there is a 1 in 10 chance your gonna win everyone’s per diem, so usually you lose, and usually you cry. But the thrill can’t be beat.


#2. GETTING RIPPED


It is my dream to travel with a full mobile gym. We don’t, but we try. We have PowerBlocks (fancy weights), skipping ropes, push up bars, ab wheels, yoga mats, chin-up bars, and all kinds of sexy Lululemon attire. The goal of the day is to out “bicep” the other guy and work off whatever calories you may have consumed in liquid form, the night before. You will literally see us transform from pudding blobs to svelte human specimens over the course of a tour. And this is important.


#3. FINE DINING


Every city has a famous restaurant and I want to go there. I’m not interested in spending hundreds of dollars on caviar and champagne, I want the hole in the wall restaurant with the best lobster roll, the best pulled pork, the best sushi, the best vibe, the best flaming whatever. I thoroughly enjoy hunting for these places all over the world, experiencing local culture and cuisine, and then bragging to other band members about how much better I am than them at everything because I ate whatever meal I just ate.


#4. SIGHT SEEING


Every city also has a sight to see, and I also want to go there. There is never much time in the day to do anything on tour. Between shower, soundcheck, meals and show, your day can fill up fast, which is why it is very important to research ahead of time and be an efficient tourist. While laying in my bunk at night, I’ll do a little digging online for something awesome to see in tomorrow’s city. The second the bus rolls into town, I’m off the bus crushing some breakfast, then in an cab/Uber to whatever famous landmark I’ve decided to visit. Whether it's a statue of Rocky Balboa in Philly or The Louvre in Paris, I get there first thing in the morning, snap the picture, take a deep breath and absorb my surroundings, text my mom about it, and jump back in the cab. In and out, like a bank robber.


#5. MARGAREET AND GREET


Sound check is starting and our legendary fans are rolling in for a little pre-show action. Time to see if my guitar works, share some laughs with our new friends, snap some pics, sign some weird stuff, and enjoy a margarita. We developed an enjoyable early evening ritual of ending our meet and greets with a margarita. Some venues make 'em awesome, other venues make 'em terrible. Either way, we will consume. Doesn’t happen every day, but on the days that it does, you’ll know.

Marianas Trench's new song "Rhythm of Your Heart" is out now!

Five years is a long time to gather inspiration. Alexander Fairchild has used that time to create a sound that's soon to be your favorite, after you hit play on his brand new track "Arizona".

Premiering exclusively with idobi.com, the song is taken from Fairchild's forthcoming EP Too Young For New York. Out on January 26th, we're looking forward to hearing what other smooth indie tracks he has to offer.



"'Arizona' is about non-committal (hi, New York) and wild memories from non-committal; eventually you find yourself at the precipice of 'I really like this person—wait I love this person.' And that’s when you get scared. And worried. And then you think about how everything has been so good." –Alexander Fairchild

[/imgfull]

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Dolores O'Riordan from The Cranberries and D.A.R.K., who died suddenly at the age of 46 in London on January 15, 2018. Her beautiful voice inspired a whole generation and touched the hearts of so many of us, and our thoughts are with her family and friends. We’ll leave you with some words from Dolores’ D.A.R.K. band mates:


Band mate and partner Olé Koretsky said, "My friend, partner, and the love of my life is gone. My heart is broken and it is beyond repair. Dolores is beautiful. Her art is beautiful. Her family is beautiful. The energy she continues to radiate is undeniable. I am lost. I miss her so much. I will continue to stumble around this planet for some time knowing well there's no real place for me here now."


"I am heartbroken and devastated by the news of the sudden and unexpected passing of Dolores," said band mate Andy Rourke. "I have truly enjoyed the years we spent together and feel privileged to call her a close friend. It was a bonus to work with her in our band D.A.R.K. and witness firsthand her breathtaking and unique talent. I will miss her terribly. I send my love and condolences to her family and loved ones."

<![CDATA[First Listen: Enter “The Woods” with Presley Tennant’s New Track]]> http://idobi.com/1st-listen/first-listen-enter-the-woods-with-presley-tennants-new-track/ Wed, 17 Jan 2018 10:00:23 +0000 Tom http://idobi.com/1st-listen/first-listen-enter-the-woods-with-presley-tennants-new-track/ http://i.ido.bi/assets/post/2018/01/Presley-Tennant-150x150.png Presley Tennant showcases her stunning new track, "The Woods", exclusively for idobi.com. [/imgfull]

It's been a good few years for the new rising star of IMCG Productions/Shi Records, Presley Tennant, especially when it comes to live shows. Her sweet pop sound took her to stages like Staples Center and VidCon 2016, and we're guessing 2018 will be even bigger for the dynamic artist.

Today, her sound is bringing her to idobi.com, where you can see her striking new video for "The Woods" exclusively. The soft and elegant song serves as an introduction to the rising star, and with her breathtaking voice, we're excited to see what's next.

[youtube]
[/youtube]

"'The Woods' is a song I hold very dear to me. While I know how I feel about it, sometimes it stumps me on how to explain it in words. It's a metaphorical story of me as little red riding hood and the woods represents a place of the unknown and unpredictable. I'm trying to make it in the world and the wolf or creatures as stated in my song are the evil people in the world with selfish intentions; while they seem so big they are actually really small. It’s about a never ending fight between good and evil, the story of conquering my fears and staying on my path to handle the the things that try to tear me down. However, with everything trying to break me down, I’m getting stronger as I keep moving down the path while temptation is coming at me. In life everyone will be approached by some sort of evil or unknown, and it’s our decision to choose to be apart of it or not. Not everyone has the best intentions at heart and it’s up to us to push through it. I choose to leave them behind...they can follow and chase but will never take the lead in my life. I’m in control of what path and destiny I choose to take and not the others."
- Presley Tennant

Photo: Danny DeRusso[/caption]

Candy Ambulance was made to play CBGB's (if it were still open, that is.) Bringing back the raw, unpredictable energy of grunge, the band is making noises you don't want to sleep on—so listen to their latest single, "Spray", below.

Known for their insane and energetic live shows, the band is the sonic equivalent of mile high mohawks and leather jackets. Y'know, the kind of punk rock that made this scene what it is.

Today, Candy Ambulance is letting us play their newest track for the first time. Sharing a title with their upcoming EP, "Spray" gives us a taste of what we're in for when the collection drops on February 16th.



"'Spray' is a song about mania. The 'I cannot stop until the cleaning is done, please don’t somehow intentionally suck the water out of the rag you mopped the floor with' mania that creeps in sometimes, late night. The kind that later ignores a ringing alarm because you stayed up all night worrying about this stuff. The kind that is so tired. We hope that when you hear 'Spray', you’re late for work.” – Candy Ambulance

This Is Us reflects on life lessons and asks the hard questions this week. With Kate (Chrissy Metz) preparing for a wedding, and Randall’s (Sterling K. Brown) dive into the past of the second father he’s loved and lost, emotions are running high—maybe more so than ever before.

We’ll see some sage advice handed down by Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) in the triplets’ past, but we’ll also be enveloped in the future, where it’s time for Kevin (Justin Hartley) to find out if Miguel’s (Jon Huertas) love for his mother overlapped his friendship with his father, a question we’re not sure we’re ready to be answered. But there’s no stopping now, because This Is Us is nothing if not our favorite show to ugly cry to.

We don’t think anyone in Riverdale bothered making resolutions to be better this year—only to create more drama—and oh boy, are they upping their game...by shutting down Southside High. All we can say is, good luck to the teachers of Riverdale High, y’all deserve a raise for all the added stress students about to enter the halls.

Riverdale airs on Wednesdays on The CW.

From The CW:
NEW YEAR, NEW DRAMA — Tensions mount when the sudden shut down of Southside High forces Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and his fellow serpents to transfer to Riverdale High. Veronica (Camila Mendes) ensures Hiram (Mark Consuelos) and Hermoine (Marisol Nichols) that she’s still on board with their plans for SoDale. Archie (KJ Apa) is conflicted when he is asked to gather some information on Hiram’s suspicious business dealings. Betty (Lili Reinhart) sets out on a quest to find her long-lost brother, Chic (guest star Hart Denton).

Grown-ish continues to hit the “uhhh yeah, been there” moments we all half-cringe, half-snort-laugh at. In “Starboy”, Zoey (Yara Shahidi) tutors the star basketball player so she can get a letter of recommendation from Dean Parker (Chris Parnell) and they’re about to get a grade A+ for total will-they-won’t-they chemistry.

Watch grown-ish every Wednesday on Freeform.

From Freeform:
Zoey makes a deal with Dean Parker to tutor the star basketball player in order to get a letter of recommendation, but her friends seem to think the relationship is something more.

On NBC




[caption id="attachment_279382" align="alignright" width="1000"] Photo by: Colleen Hayes/NBC[/caption]

Eleanor (Kristen Bell) & Co. are on a mission...with kind of a detour through IHOP (but in The Bad Place the pancakes eat you). They’re going incognito, which means dressing up and taking on new, not-so-Good-Place personas—or in the case of Janet (D’Arcy Carden), faking the Bad Janet attitude...yeah, we’re already laughing. The Place they end up in is gonna give Chidi (William Jackson Harper) some serious heartburn...although it seems Jason (Manny Jacinto) fits right in and Tahani (Jameela Jamil) can still namedrop. Turns out Hell really is a delayed train journey (although a three hour delay is nothing compared to Earth, just sayin’).

Dive into The Good Place this Thursday on NBC.

From NBC:
A CHANGE OF SCENERY MIGHT BE IN ORDER - Eleanor (Kristen Bell), Chidi (William Jackson Harper), Tahani (Jameela Jamil), Janet (D'Arcy Carden) and Jason (Manny Jacinto) head to a destination that may have lasting implications. Ted Danson also stars.

We were always kinda really rooting for Vince (Bobby Cannavale), but hey, the show’s called Will & Grace, not Will & Vince, right? And honestly, Vince should know better than to invite the crazy into his own wedding...he really brought this week’s episode scene on himself, honey.

Crash the wedding with Will & Grace on NBC tomorrow.

From Will & Grace to Grace and Frankie, we are feeling #blessed this week. Netflix’s brightest show returns to make us snort with laughter and be fiercely proud of these two boss ladies...and their hilariously bumbling ex-husbands.

[youtube][/youtube]

From Netflix:
In Grace and Frankie, Jane Fonda (“Grace”) and Lily Tomlin (“Frankie”) star as two women whose lives are suddenly turned upside down when their husbands reveal they are gay and leave them for each other.

<![CDATA[Awsten + Travis’ Slumber Party Starts TONIGHT + You’re All Invited]]> http://idobi.com/news/awsten-travis-slumber-party-starts-tonight-youre-all-invited/ Mon, 15 Jan 2018 15:39:07 +0000 Tom http://idobi.com/news/awsten-travis-slumber-party-starts-tonight-youre-all-invited/ http://i.ido.bi/assets/post/2018/01/DTN1JtpVwAAvWwm-150x150.jpg Pack your PJs, Awsten + Travis' Slumber Party kicks off tonight! [/imgfull]

Waterparks' Awsten Knight is on a quest to conquer our airwaves, and we're feeling like Lucky People. Starting tonight at 7pm ET, the vocalist is having a slumber party with Travis Riddle on ido.bi/player, and you're all invited.

Awsten and Travis will be reading bedtime stories to make you feel all fuzzy inside—and by that, we totally mean fanfics. Listen in to hear them tell stories the internet has written just for them, and hear the word "quiver" more times than is probably necessary.

It all starts TONIGHT (1/15) at 7pm ET. Tune in, then meet us back here every Monday at the same time for another episode of Awsten + Travis' Slumber Party. (Just leave your grandma at home, we're doing this one NSFW.)
