Rise Up by Andre Day

Andra Day owes her success to YouTube, thanks to a cover of Jessie J’s “Mamma Knows Best” in 2012. This cover reached number 2 on the YouTube Music Charts and lead to Andra signing a record deal with Warner Bros. Records. Prior to the release of her debut album, Andra was featured in Rolling Stones […]

Do You Remember by Jarryd James

Jarryd comes to us from Australia, where he began playing in a band called Holland in 2012. The band recorded a debut album, but it was never released and this led Jarryd to fall into depression and quit making music. In late 2014, he was asked to accompany some friends on a tour as their […]

My love is cool (Favorites) by Wolf Alice

I’m tapping into another London-based band this week, not all-female but led by a female vocalist.  Wolf Alice formed back in 2010 as a duo and released an EP, but grew to their current quartet in 2012.  The band released a number of singles before releasing an EP in 2013 which got a lot of […]

Adore Life (Favorites) by Savages

London quartet Savages played their first show 4 years ago.  Since then the all-female post-punk band released some singles then a much acclaimed 2013 album titled “Silence Yourself”.  The band immediately garnered a lot of buzz through their singles and their raucous live performances at high visibility shows including CMJ Music Marathon in NY and […]

Pillowtalk by Zayn

Former 1Direction frontman releases his (highly anticipated) first single off forth-coming solo album. I think that the lyrics really capture exactly what his message was trying to convey. Below we have found an interview snippet about the new song from former 1D Zayn Malik. Zayn Malik Explains The Real Meaning Behind ‘Pillowtalk’: It’s Not Only […]

Samson by Regina Spektor

The first time I heard this song was on The Voice (performance below) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-hh5WOz8RY I couldn’t believe it–had I heard this Regina Spektor song before? It turns out this song is older…regardless, I decided to post this song, in the spirit of timeless music; lasting forever. Until next time…get LOUD AND NOISY!

Quintessential Bowie

Hey Noisy Planet! As promised here is our quintessential David Bowie top ten list. We have scoured in music mayhem all morning–while mourning the demise of Bowie. How do pay tribute to such an icon? His name alone invokes a sense of mystery, awe and admiration. But alas, let’s get loud and noisy and make […]

No Bad Vibez by Rich White Ladies

This song combines an interesting electronic-pop sound with stunning vocals to create a totally unique sound. The lyrics describe luxe, tropical living and create an anthem for any spring or summer vacation. It is a nice pick-me-up on any day to get rid of the bad vibes. It is the last song off of the […]

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 […]
