There's no exact way of knowing how many songs are released in a day. Whether it be an eighteen second kazoo ditty on Soundcloud, or a Hypem track with 4 hearts, all music deserves a shot. Even on an independent blog like Earmilk, it's impossible to cover every band/song/remix worth listening too. That's why Straight From the Teet is back, and this time…IT'S DAILY! My name is Logan (aka Running) and I will be curating Earmilk's newest old feature, highlighting three up-and-coming artists from three different genres, so sit back and enjoy some good-old-fashioned, non-pasteurized, Earmilk. Drink it fast though, because I'll be coming back tomorrow with more…
I recently featured Blue Belt's track "Anymore" on SFTT and am happy to share another track off their upcoming eponymous LP. "E.Y.B." stands for "Eff Yr Blog" (ouch) and it's a great Animal Collective meets Beastie Boys type track, with a shout-along "Fuck Your Blog" chorus. You can find more info on this up-and-coming hip-hop troupe here, and be sure to stay tuned, because their debut release hits the blogosphere July 26.

Blue Belt – "E.Y.B."
What is up with ambient musicians being such hermits? There is literally no information about Σ-Fly other than what I could find on Bandcamp and Soundcloud. He/she/they recently released the Tides EP via Warminal Records (their website is just a picture with a Soundcloud link), and I'm very impressed by how evocative their music is. Disembodied pianos, hi-hat glitches, and the occasional heavy-handed snare flesh out most of the reverb-heavy soundscape. I'm a sucker for anything that treads on the border between pensive and melodramatic. Happy listening.

Marcel Everett is the type of person who makes me feel worthless. This fifteen-year-old produces an off-shoot of chillwave (which he calls "fro-fi") under the moniker xxyyxx, and was recently signed to Relief in Abstract Records. His debut album Still Sound made me grab a thesaurus. It's phantasmic summer hook-up music, substantial and-at the same time-airy. I hope that's vivid enough for your tastes.
