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 […]

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!

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 […]

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 […]

First by Cold War Kids

Cold War Kids released their 5th album in October – “Hold My Home”.  Hailing from the OC in Fullerton, CA, the band released their first full length album “Robbers & Cowards” in 2006.  Their debut came after some well-hyped EPs and live performances, and it showed a great deal of promise for the band (and […]

Neverminders by In The Valley Below

“Neverminders” is another standout track from “The Belt” that immediately grabbed my attention out the first time I heard it.  A pretty straightforward guitar/synth driven song, highlighted by alternating vocals during the verses and an easy to sing along chorus of “Neverminders, Neverminders, Neverminders coming for your crown”.This track has some retro elements, I hear […]

Ghost by Ella Henderson

Ella Henderson – “Ghost” – Ella comes to us from England, where she has been singing since she was 3yrs old for her family.  At the age of 5, she taught herself to play the piano and began putting on Christmas performances for her family every year going forward.  Thanks to these many performances, she […]
