Editor’s Note: Please welcome Nate Fritts to the Lacrosse All Stars! This isn’t his first time on the site of course, we had the pleasure of meeting Nate on the Rhino Lacrosse Camp Tour a couple summers back. Nate hales from Portland, Oregon, played at Bowdoin College (NESCAC) in Maine, and now resides in Boston, MA where he researches concussions and brain diseases when he’s not laxing.
Given the dramatic progress of the NCAA Tournament that everyone is buzzing about, I saw it fit to bring you some tracks from a bunch of college (or at least college-aged) kids that are making big sounds in the music world. We’ve got one new artist and one Music Monday double-dipper, both of which should be able to get you pumped for the next lax game or simply pick up your Monday.
Coyote Kisses – “This Is How You Know”
Let me introduce another newcomer to both my music library and Music Mondays…Coyote Kisses! Yes, it’s an incredible band name but beyond that, these kids can jam. The group is just two college kids who have been pumping out tunes in the genre that, according to their Facebook, they call “Space Punk.” Whatever you want to call it, this song is a hit that is just right to get the summer moving, as is the rest of their new Thunder Color EP (link below!).
Logic – “Nasty” [Explicit language]
We featured Logic with the first single off of Welcome to Forever back on March 4th in Music Monday: Walking West and it is now my pleasure to bring you the full mixtape. This is the first rap mixtape that I have enjoyed thoroughly, from beginning to end, in a long while. Choosing just one track for our post was nearly impossible, so I urge you to go out and listen to the rest (link below). Especially check out “Roll Call,” Logic’s ridiculous freestyle over the beat of Outkast’s “Ms. Jackson.” At just 23, Logic is proving himself as a flat out amazing lyricist (when you have rappers like Nas praising your work, you know you’re into something good).
