Alessia Cara – Wild Things

This fun, young, energetic song has a pretty straight forward message. It is about being young making a name for yourself, making your life. Being hip to the beat and dancing to it at the same time. The entire song has a great message and great beat to dance too. Letting people know that it […]

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 […]

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!

Where Are You Now by Skrillex and Diplo feat. Justin Bieber

Something about this song gets stuck in my head. I can’t tell if it is the melodic rhythm of Diplo and his metronome style–Skrillex spilling the bass like sips of honey–or Bieber offering a subtle hints of soul. For whatever reason, I think this new single has potential to become an anthem this summer. The […]

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 […]

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 […]
