April 8th, 2014 by | Alternative/Indie, Concert/Festival Review, Hidden Gem, Music Video, Pop, Rock |

1957299 saints of valory 617 409 600x397 Hidden Gem: Saints of Valory *upbeat alternative Pop/RockI don’t know how I discovered this band, I just found four of their songs on my iTunes that I downloaded in December and finally got to. But wow, Saints of Valory‘s four song Possibilities EP is some great upbeat fun that I enjoy very much! This rock/alternative/pop band signed to Atlantic Records and are a hit!

Stream the Saints of Valory‘s Possibilities EP to understand the hype, my favorites are “Kids”, “Long Time Coming” and “Back Up”.

Oh wait, now I remember how I might have discovered them! When I was really into ”Royals” covers, I think I came across theres and became a fan of the band. Watch their Saints of Valory‘s acoustic cover to “Royals”, the harmonized vocals are hot and makes you want to sing along to Lorde‘s catchy lyrics!

Video+Download: Jhameel – Lion’s Den *Game Of Thrones song

April 6th, 2014 by | Alternative/Indie, Music Video |

unnamed2 600x600 Video+Download: Jhameel   Lions Den *Game Of Thrones songRising indie pop artist Jhameel has released a new song and video that’s a tribute to HBO’s Game Of Thrones series. I’m a little late on this but today’s a good day to release this with the new season of the show starting tonight (CANT WAIT!!!).

The video is for his new single Lion’s Den, the title track off his upcoming album.  It features a flaming torch, a majestic wolf, and some bad-ass armor (to protect him from the haters). I’m glad Jhameel is as obsessed with Game Of Thrones as I and many other fans of the show are!

Anyway watch “Lion’s Den” below, it’s a relaxed song perfect for a Sunday and to get you pumped for GOT returning tonight! (more…)

Ghost Beach Miracle Le Youth Remix 600x600 Video: Ghost Beach   MiracleI can’t believe I haven’t posted the new music video from Ghost Beach! What’s wrong with me, this song “Miracle” is a hit, probably one of the catchiest songs I heard in 2013 and now the video is out to get you pumped for their tour.

Watch “Miracle” below and get their debut album Blonde (iTunes).  (more…)

Download: Rob Cantor – GHOST *alternative pop

April 5th, 2014 by | Alternative/Indie, Pop |

unnamed 431x600 Download: Rob Cantor   GHOST *alternative popQuite an interesting release from Rob Cantor with “Ghost”. It’s fairly different from “Old Bike” and sounds a bit Foals-esque, and I think the build in the bridge is actually pretty fantastic. It’s more laid back and I think Rob Cantor is almost there is making some great music.

Stream and download “Ghost” below.

Introducing SIREN… I Think I Like You

April 4th, 2014 by | Alternative/Indie, Electropop, Pop |


The title above is the exact subject of how I received the email from this up-and-coming female pop duo from Los Angeles and is exactly how I feel about their music right now. I think I like it but I’m not quite sure. However I feel compelled enough to post it as I love the beat, the chorus in “I Think I Like You” is fun with them singing about how it’s complicated is real cool.

I almost want to wait until the video comes out but this duo SIREN may just have a chance to become real big so it’s probably a good idea I jump on it and post it now before the other blogs forget to credit us for posting this.

Video: Wunder Wunder – Coastline *upbeat retro psychadelia

April 3rd, 2014 by | Alternative/Indie, Music Video, Rock |

wunder Video: Wunder Wunder   Coastline *upbeat retro psychadelia

We initially introduced you to Wunder Wunder through “Sure Stuck” which was a very fun track that I wanted to listen to while cruising on a long board through a beach town. Their latest “Coastline” makes you want to ride your longboard skateboard to the beach.

This song makes me want to run to a beach and see how far I go until I’m annoyed by all the salt water and call it quits and say, “fuck sand” as I inevitably will say at some point when I go to the beach. Anyways, shouts to Noisey for premiering Wunder Wunder‘s latest video for “Coastline”, it’s a fun beach rock retro psychadelia type of song that’s easy to enjoy.

Watch “Coastline” below.

Video: Chance Waters ft. The Griswolds – Bonnie *indie hip-pop

April 1st, 2014 by | Alternative/Indie, Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video, Pop |

unnamed 600x360 Video: Chance Waters ft. The Griswolds   Bonnie *indie hip popNot sure how to categorize this song but I think it has this hip indie pop-rock feel that is very fun from some awesome Australian musicians in MC Chance Waters and infectious pop-rock band The Griswolds, my favorite emerging pop-rock band in Australia and maybe worldwide!

The video is the perfect companion piece to the multi-talented Chance Waters‘ ”Bonnie,” the MC’s collaboration with Sydney indie-poppers The Griswolds. The song blurs lines with pop hooks, harmonies, swathes of live instrumentation and world class production from Adelaide producer One Above (Hilltop Hoods).You can hear elements of Lily Allen crossed with Macklemore, crossed with the jubilation of such modern pop upstarts as Capital Cities.

Watch “Bonnie” below and start singing along to the catchy chorus. Do me a favor and comment below if you know anybody named Bonnie and who is younger than 30 years old. (more…)

The Icelandic hipsters were out in full force supporting Iceland band Steed Lord and although it wasn’t the largest crowd until the headliner Steed Lord got everybody dancing, it was still a fun show filled with new songs I have come to enjoy.
