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.

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

April 27th, 2017 by | Alternative/Indie, Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video, synthpop |

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…)

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!

Watch: Magic Giant – “Set On Fire” acoustic *mesmerizing!

March 15th, 2017 by | Alternative/Indie, Chill/Jam/Reggae, Hidden Gem, Music Video, Pop, Rock |

My favorite emerging band Magic Giant. Yes, my favorite emerging band who continues to climb higher and higher in the mainstream music scene and whose tours are lasting longer and longer have released a new video and I love it!

They were couch-crashing at a friend’s farm in upstate NY and woke up to this beautiful scene outside their window. It was so serene that it inspired this acoustic arrangement of Set on Fire which you should watch below.

Video: Winstons – “Without You” *soulful blues rock

March 10th, 2017 by | Alternative/Indie, Music Video, Rock |

Winstons is a garage-soul duo out of Virginia, residing in Brooklyn. They do love songs, blue songs, and dance songs with drums, guitar, harmonies, and a harmonica.

The lead singer sounds like the lead singer from Kings Of Leon with the soulful rock melodies of The Black Keys and Alabama Shakes. Their sound has drawn comparisons to Screaming’ Jay Hawkins and The Cramps. I really like what they are bringing in “Without You” and can’t wait to hear more, one of my new favorite bands!

Watch the video to “Without You” below.

Video: Faulkner – “Revolutionary” *catchy rock-pop

February 2nd, 2017 by | Alternative/Indie, Music Video, Rock |

I had heard of Faulkner doing shows in LA but never pursued it as I didn’t know much about them. However, when their team sent “Revolutionary” over, I knew I had to write about this rock-pop track which is getting quite the buzz for an independent artist.

The bicoastal four piece have been getting a ton of love for their newest single, “Revolutionary” (off their debut album “REVANCHIST”) which is everything you could ever want from a grunge infused pop-rock track. The song has been even been featured on iconic L.A. radio station KROQ and has well over two million views on YouTube.

I caught them do a 5-6 song exclusive set in Hollywood, performing a track that will be with a fairly big rapper later this year (sorry I can’t reveal) and a couple others tracks there were quite catchy. They have a good stage presence and hopefully will get some tour dates going so they can gain further exposure.

Watch the music video for “Revolutionary” below. (more…)
