Welcome back to the Wrap-Up! This week we’ve got new tunes from Michael Christmas, Houseguests, and Tall Heights, plus a strangely touching car advertisement!


Plugging In and Pissing Off: Check Out this Mini-Documentary on Bob Dylan at Newport Folk Fest

In celebration of 50 years since Dylan’s wildly iconic performance at Rhode Island’s long-coveted Newport Folk Festival, executive producer Joseph Asad, along with director Phil Pinto and artists like Jim James and Courtney Barnett, released a sub-3-minute doc this week about the guy who found a way to play louder than everyone else. Take a peek below.

Edit: SYKE it’s just an elaborate Audi commercial. Still, worth a peep. 


How Many Times Do We Have to Tell You to Get On the Michael Christmas Train?

We said it before. I’ll say it again. Michael Christmas knows what he’s doing, and so will everyone and their grandma by the end of the year. He just dropped a new track, “Who?” produced by Qreamybeats. It’s tasty. He’s also hitting the road with Mac Miller in just a few weeks. Oh, and he’s got a new project, entitled What a Weird Day, on the way. So, listen up:

Houseguests’ A Carnival Game is Fun and Sad and Great (and Free)

Local indie punkz and self-proclaimed mediocre 80s hardcore group (tru) Houseguests recently premiered their debut EP, A Carnival Game, via some dashingly good-looking music blog. It’s fun, loud, in your face, and nostalgic as hell. Give it a listen below or click on that link in the preceding sentence to confirm that we were in fact just talking about ourselves.


Folk On Wall Street: Listen to Tall Heights’ “Spirit Cold”

New tunes from dreamy dudes. Way back in April we wrapped up a misty, verb-soaked performance of “Spirit Cold” from Tall Heights at the Shalin Liu Performance Center. Now, you can relive the magic and peep the single, radio-ready and all, courtesy of the Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy. The group’s 6-track EP Holding On, Holding Out is set to drop October 9.
