Review: JR JR @ The Echo *incredible!!!

May 30th, 2017 by | Alternative/Indie, Concert/Festival Review, Electronic Rock, Electropop, Pop, synthpop |

Last Thursday I saw JR JR at The Echo in Echo Park, Los Angeles. They were the best band I’ve ever seen perform at that venue and one of the best performances I’ve seen this year. They performed for over an hour and it felt like it was never going to end as they played many tracks they haven’t released yet as well as personal favorites like “Gone”, 2017 release “Same Dark Places”, “Simple Girl”, “If You Didn’t See Me”, “As Time Goes” and “We Almost Lost Detroit”. I loved every song they performed and just wish I knew the songs they haven’t released yet as I loved all of those too. They had tons of energy, good banter in between songs and the live looping the lead singer did to start each song really created such a beautiful sound. You can tell these guys are influenced by The Beatles, punk rock

Stream the songs I mentioned above and many more as you deserve to listen to all of JR JR to get an idea how good they are.

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.

Let Aloe Blacc take you higher on “Counting On Me,” below. It’s out Monday, May 15, on Spinnin’ Records.

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.
