Stream: The Griswolds – Beware The Dog *new indie pop-rock single

May 20th, 2014 by | Alternative/Indie, Pop, Rock |

artworks 000078845514 8749c2 t500x500 Stream: The Griswolds   Beware The Dog *new indie pop rock singleMy favorite up-and-coming Australian band, The Griswolds, released their latest single off their debut album, “Beware The Dog” and it’s so much fun! I love the pop-rock vibe that is just so catchy and sounds a bit tropical, like your dancing on a raft floating down a tropical Amazonian river with exotic animals and tribal people following you along the river dancing and cheering as you are dancing on this raft floating down some exotic river outside your comfort zone.

Stream the new Tony Hoffer (Beck, M83) produced single ”Beware The Dog” from The Griswolds below.

I can’t wait for The Griswolds debut album to come out, it’s going to be great!

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!

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.
