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 […]

Indie labels win government grants

Nonstop Feeling (Favorites) by Turnstile

Turnstile has some similarities to FIDLAR by embracing a punk style of music, but they are also very different in their influences and direction.  They have more of a hardcore attitude, and a punk-metal sound.  They hail from Baltimore, which is definitely not SoCal.  They are not as laid back, but they do have some […]

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 […]

Foo Fighters and Yes’ Jon Davison Cover Rush’s “Tom Sawyer”
