'Everything' Live in the Studio with Hundred Waters

Hundred Waters have been releasing new music with a frequency that makes it hard to keep up.  It truly feels that way because their music seems hard to fully comprehend no matter how many times, or how close you've listened.  Their Currency EP has been out for about a month, and was followed by the new single 'Blanket Me' that comes from their upcoming album Communicating.  This morning we're excited to share an unexpected video from the studio.  The band performs 'Everything' from Currency, and it really lives up to the title when experienced from this perspective.

Listen to Currency and 'Blanket Me'

Hundred Waters: 'Blanket Me'

'Blanket Me' is the latest release from Hundred Waters.  It follows the release of the Currency EP, and performances at FORM Arcosanti.  As they complete the work on their new album 'Communicating', it's release has been announced for September.  Much like Currency, the album art for 'Blanket Me' is quite unique.  That image much like the song feels like they are drawing you in to something much bigger than just an album.  We can't wait.  Listen below, and take in the beautiful, hand written lyrics.

Hundred Waters: "Particle"

Hundred Waters have released a new song, and quite sudden at that.  "Particle" was released just over an hour ago with the band sharing the album art on Instagram in conjunction with the release on major platforms.  It's been a while since their last releases, The Moon Rang Like A Bell: Remixes and "Show Me Love" with Skrillex, Chance the Rapper, Moses Sumney, and Robin Hannibal.  The wildly unpredictable Hundred Waters catalogue has led the way for "Particle" and hopefully for a third album.  Download "Particle" free at Hundred-Waters.com or get it here.

21 Things That Make The WAYHOME Lineup GREAT

The Wayhome Festival lineup for 2017 was announced a couple of weeks ago, and the reactions were strong. Aside from the fact that more acts are still to be announced, many took to social media to express their displeasure with the bill.

There are a few things we think people should remember: first, Wayhome is not Lollapalooza. It's a lot closer to Sasquatch. Which is an amazing festival - one of the best actually. It's a bit smaller and the magnitude of superstar performers may not be what some people had hoped - especially after being treated to the likes of Neil Young, Kendrick, Arcade Fire and LCD Soundsystem over the last couple of years (to name a few).

It's also important to keep in mind that Wayhome goes late, and their will undoubtedly be someone amazing on during anyone you may not want to see. And that's where the rest of the lineup comes in.

The thing about it is, it's actually STACKED. And we can prove it - and not just with a 'top 5' - because you need to be busy the whole time! Here are 21 things that make Wayhome an essential festival to check out:

21. Constantines

These guys are legends. Any chance you get to see Constantines - take it. Your life will be better.

20. Frank Ocean

We've all been waiting a long time for anything from Frank! And now, we get a headline slot that is sure to be life changing.

19. The Drums

All of their music is great, but we couldn't be more excited for this new stuff.

18. Darcys

Darcys are the best. One of the coolest Canadian bands out - you'd be crazy to miss out on them!

17. Colony House

Their uplifting rock magic is perfect for any summer night. This will be awesome.

16. Margaret Glaspy

One of our favorite new finds (for us) on this lineup, we will be front and center for this one!

15. Hundred Waters

They make some of the most fascinating, lush and beautiful music around - they will be perfect at Wayhome.

14. JAHKOY

Proving they thought of everything - including LOTS of super fresh R&B. Jahkoy is great!

13. Mura Masa

If you'd like to see into the future, post up at Mura Musa's stage. This will be huge.

12. Banks

 One of the most exceptional performers and creators of dark, modern pop music - Banks is some you absolutely cannot miss.

11. Charles Bradley

We have seen this guy change the weather before. Charles Bradley is the perfect addition to any outdoor festival lineup.

10. The Shins

After all these years we still haven't had the pleasure of seeing these guys live, thanks to Wayhome - we are about to fix that.

9. Jagwar Ma

We can't imagine a better vibe than Australia's trailblazing Jagwar Ma on a hot August afternoon. This is a great booking right here.

8. Phantogram

Between two incredible LPs AND the Big Grams project with Big Boi of Outkast, Phantogram have pretty much been on FIRE for a long time now.

7. Andy Shauf

One of the best albums of 2016, we should all be so lucky to see this brilliant artist play it live. Can't wait for this one!

6. Schoolboy Q

There's nothing to not love about Schoolboy Q. The man is a beast of an mc and an elite live performer.

5. Danny Brown

4. PUP

If there was one thing missing from last year - it was PUP.

3. Tanya Tagaq

The brilliant artist and Inuit throat singer, we are on the edge of our seats from Tanya Tagaq's performance.

2. Justice

We have our fingers crossed that this will be a late night show - Justice live is utter insanity.

1. Solange

Her album is beyond incredible, we have a feeling this performance will be one of our favorite things of 2017.
