Black Sheep by gin Wigmore

Gin Wigmore – “Black Sheep” – Gin Wigmore hails from Auckland, New Zealand and I came to know her through a streaming radio station that I frequent. Upon first listen to her, I found many similarities between her, Amy Winehouse and Duffy. Initially I actually thought I was listening to Duffy, so I was pleasantly […]

“Echo”- EP by VÉRITÉ

This EP is VÉRITÉ’s first and I can already tell this girl has a serious future in the music industry. Not only is she vocally talented but also her songs show variety and can appeal to all types of pop lovers from the more electronic side to more indie. Her songs are the type of […]

A New Wave by The Sleater-Kinney

“A New Wave” kicks right off with some great guitar and a ton of exuberance. It’s probably the most “fun” song on the album, and it should be since the song is basically about how great it is for them to play music together. The verses are sung by Brownstein and then Brownstein and Tucker […]

Is It Horrible by Marmozets

“Is It Horrible” starts off sounding a little more subdued. You’re thinking, “this really isn’t that frantic or urgent…”. Wait until about 45 seconds in when Becca lets out an anguished wail and then everything kicks up several notches. This song also has some interesting instrumental sections as the band members are locked in pretty […]

Looking Too Closely by Fink

Fink – “Looking Too Closely” – Fink comes to us from the UK and I was lucky enough to stumble upon these gents while watching a TV show.  Before Fink actually became a band, the lead singer was a very successful electronic/dance DJ on the European scene in the early 2000’s. In the early stages […]

Mouthful of Love by Young Heart Attack

“Mouthful of Love”(explicit)– The lead track kicks off the album with an instrumental jam for the first 45 seconds before the vocalists kick in, trading lines back and forth.  Stephens takes over on the chorus, and you notice how her voice complements Hodge’s nicely.  There’s not much else to say, the track just barrels along […]

Ember City by Mastadon

Mastadon “Ember City” – I’m including this track which appears near the end of the album because it might be my favorite.  It starts off inauspiciously, but once it gets to the first chorus, that’s what starts to set it apart.  This song has a great chorus that really gets nestled deep in your brain.  […]

Over You by Ingrid Michaelson ft. A Great Big World

Ingrid Michaelson Ft. A Great Big World – “Over You” – I’ve provided a few tracks by Ingrid in the past, and I’m pretty sure most of you are aware of who she is. If you aren’t familiar with her name, I guarantee you that you are familiar with a few of her most famous […]

Starlite by Young Heart Attack

“Starlite” – The band actually got funding for an actual video for this song.  This song is a little slower than “Mouthful of Love” but probably even more fun.  This is a rocking song about young love and it really sounds like a song you’d hear blasting from car stereos in the summer time as […]
