Review: Mother Mother live @ Troubadour *high energy hard rock!

May 24th, 2017 by | Alternative/Indie, Concert/Festival Review, Electronic Rock, Music Video, Rock |

5-piece indie rock band Mother Mother surprised the shit out of me with high energy hard rock, getting the whole crowd banging their heads along with the five-piece band. It was a packed house last night at the famous Troubadour in West Hollywood as an equal number of males and females rocked out to Mother Mother.

Each song they performed felt like an epic hard rock ballad, I hope this band can perform in arenas and larger venues because their sound is best suited to be played loud and they will definitely be playing in venues larger than the Troubadour. But for every fan there last night, we were delighted with a long set of hard rocking songs that reminded me of bands like QueenYoungblood Hawke and Coheed & Cambria.

Yes, I mentioned three bands that don’t have much in common but while enjoying Mother Mother‘s set, I felt like they were a mix of rock, with influences of electro, punk and some pop with the harmonies. Many of the songs felt like awesome roller coaster rides of sound, sonically dynamic and exhilarating!

It’s hard to pick a favorite because I enjoyed most of them and sometimes it was hard to hear what they were singing so hard to remember many of them but their new single “Love Stuck” is catchy and probably my favorite. Watch the official video for it below and learn about all the songs Mother Mother played in their set last night! (more…)

Video: Aeroplane & Purple Disco Machine ft. Aloe Blacc – “Counting On Me” *dance

May 13th, 2017 by | Dance, Disco, Electropop, House, Music Video |

Aeroplane Purple Disco Machine got the smooth voice of one of my favorite contemporary singers, Aloe Blacc, as well as a gospel chorus for their latest dance release, “Counting On Me”. This infectious dance track is just what’s needed to turn your party into a dance party and it makes you want to move! It’s a soulful upbeat dance track that reminds me of Disclosure.

Continuing to make waves at home and abroad is Australian outfit Winston Surfshirt, who recently shared their new video for debut single “Be About You”. The video brings their unique blend of hip-hop, rap, and blissful dream pop to life as the band hang out, cut shapes and introduce themselves as Winston Surfshirt.

“Be About You” is suave, has this chill vibe and I’m low-key swaying my head as I’m listening to this song and writing about it. Definitely looking forward to hearing more. Watch the video to “Be About You” below. (more…)

Introducing Polaroid Summer *uplifting electric indie pop

April 20th, 2017 by | Electropop, Hidden Gem, Pop, synthpop |

Happy to introduce Houston indie pop band Polaroid Summer with their debut single, “The Giant”. It’s a fun uplifting track that is easy to sing along to and leaves me wanting more from these guys. I can’t wait to hear what’s next and think they have a really strong debut that should get them on some good local shows. I can’t wait to read about them doing big things at SXSW 2018 as I imagine a year from now the number of people that are fans of these guys will grow immensely.

The upbeat and catchy track is the first official release from Polaroid Summer, the new project from members of Houston bands Lost Element and VerseCity.Stream “The Giant” below.

Miami Horror – “The Shapes” *artsy concept album

March 24th, 2017 by | Album/Mixtape/EP Review, Alternative/Indie, Electropop, New Wave, synthpop |

One of my favorite Australian bands is back with some great new music with their new concept album, The Shapes. After a two-year hiatus spent writing, experimenting and exploring, Melbourne’s Miami Horror return with their new conceptual project The Shapes.

The Shapes comes to life as a sonic / art experience and sees the band delve deep into rhythm and percussion with influences ranging from the art pop and lyrical wit of Talking Heads to Caribbean funk and African beats.  The first taste from The Shapes, “Leila” embodies the glitzy, glamorous sunshine of LA, draped in 80s synth melodies and topped with those iconic Miami Horror vocals, it’s a fitting first single.

Stream The Shapes below.

Watch: Speelburg – “Pulse Of A Million” *alternative psychedelic pop

March 16th, 2017 by | Alternative/Indie, Dance, Electronic Rock, Electropop, Hidden Gem, Music Video, Pop |

When I first heard this song, I thought it was weird yet grabbed me because of its upbeat nature and I like the alternative, almost psychedelic vibes with uplifting lyrical content. Speelburg is intriguing, cool, strange, awesome and exciting! I really want to hear more from them and catch Speelburg (real name Noah Sacré) live!
