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. […]

“Renegade” by Shy Girls

This song is my favorite off of this Portland native’s newest album. The entire album is an amazing display of his vocal range and his smooth voice makes you never want to stop listening. It is hard to talk about him without comparing him to The Weeknd. Their voices are surprisingly similar but what they […]

“All We Need” by Odesza ft.Shy Girls

This song has a catchy electronic beat with stunning vocals. Shy Girls comes onto this track and adds an extra dimension of vocal talent. The beat is something that would fare very well at a house party but upon closer listening the song is much deeper than just something played for teens and twenty-something’s to […]

“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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
