Mona Lisa by Dead Sara

“Mona Lisa”is the first single from the new album. It starts off with some background noise and finger-snapping along with a little band hum. Then the song kicks in with a snaky guitar line and a solid rhythm section. Armstrong gets to have a lot of fun with her vocals on this track. And while […]

Something Good by Dead Sara

“Something Good”is not the first single off of the album but it should be. Seems tailor-made for radio with a chorus that will quickly get stuck in your brain and verses that are begging to be sung along with. The production is clean and the music is very straightforward. – (sound is a little subpar)

Dead Sara

Dead Sara have been highlighted by me previously, and they just released their second album “Pleasure To Meet You”. The band, evoking shades of Hole, Sleater-Kinney and L7 play straightforward guitar driven rock. The band comparisons are mostly due to vocalist/guitarist Emily Armstrong and guitarist Siouxsie Medley – you don’t see too many female-fronted rock […]

Hotel Ceiling by Rixton

A haunting song with an equally haunting music video. It begins with finding love then losing it. It deals with the emotions felt after losing a loved one; the confusion, guilt, anger, and much more. In the song he describes the love as dead while the music video has a man missing while his love […]

The Book of Love by Gavin James

People say you can’t describe love but this song comes pretty close. The vocals are soulful and James displays amazing range. It is slow and meaningful conveying endless emotion. He sings all about what love means and what the person he loves means to him. His sound is equally if not more amazing live and […]

Work Song by Hozier

Off of the same album as the hit song “Take Me to Church” this ballad is soulful, emotional, and addicting. It is a story from finding love in a time of hardness to death and coming back to love again. It is not a traditional love song but combines interesting music with meaningful lyrics to […]

St. Jude by Florence and the Machine

St. Jude by Florence and the Machine Unlike their past popular pop ballads this song is slow and haunting with a video to match. As usual the vocals are amazing but this time they take a more serious tone. It is a song about lost causes and their patron saint, St, Jude. The song tells […]

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 […]

“Man is Strange” by Skylar Fri

This new artist an amazing vocalist and has a clear talent for songwriting as well. Her sound is similar to Lana Del Rey but with a more electronic pop styling. This song is her first and was released in November of 2014. The song deals with the strange nature of man as the title implies. […]

Lostboycrow

This artist is new to the industry but already off to a great start. He released his first song “Adolescent” in December of 2014 and then “Hiy Hiy” in January 2015. He describes his music as a “pop minded vocalist’s dark love affair with the world of modern R and B”. Both songs begin with […]
