I Wont Let You Down by OK Go

“I Won’t Let You Down” – This song is somewhat of a departure from the original sound of the band; honestly, the entire 4th album is a step in a different direction musically. Upon first listen of this song, it sounds like something you might hear in the late 70’s early 80’s. The band stated […]

Hotel Anywhere by Cold War Kids

“Hotel Anywhere” is a bouncier tune, driven by Maust’s bass line.  It starts off big right from the get go, drums, guitar and the bass firing on all cylinders, along with some nice keyboard accents.  This is much more of an anthem song, with a big U2-esque chorus.  It’s fun to listen to and I […]

The catchy chorus is hard not to enjoy also. The video features the band dancing on treadmills in […]

Here With Me by Susie Suh & Robot Koch

Susie Suh & Robot Koch – “Here With Me” – I’ve had this song listed as a song to share with the group since last year, but I kept passing it up to share other artist.  Part of the reason I kept passing it by, is because there really isn’t much information about Susie Suh […]
