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 two up-and-coming artists from two 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…
Does anyone remember the movie Vanilla Sky? I envision Jamie Way doing the soundtrack. His brand of indie-breakbeat evokes imagery of urban decay, unrequited love, and all those other melodrama pieces that I secretly enjoy. His latest release "Running Blind" is self described as "a sense of deja-vu that never really happened", which leaves me hoping he'll release an album of equally cinematic tracks with equally pretentious descriptions. Send this guy some love.

Jamie Way – "50K"
I recently featured Zero Star on SFTT and am happy to say that my prediction came true. The Columbus native just released the record Don't Look Now which is filled with stellar neo-soul production, clever rhymes, and-of course-one of my favorite tracks of 2011: "72' Dolphins". You can peep the visuals for that track below and check the entire album out via the above Bandcamp link. Happy listening.
