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!

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.

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.

Video: Dave Patten – This Ledge

April 4th, 2014 by | Music Video, Pop |

Screen shot 2013 10 12 at 6.36.27 PM 1024x570 600x333 Video: Dave Patten   This LedgeMy favorite Philly singer/songwriter Dave Patten is back with a new video, “This Ledge”. It’s a smooth track, not my favorite from him as it’s a little more laid back than his other material but I absolutely love the storytelling in all his videos and this video is no exception to how easy it is for Dave Patten to turn his songs into intricate short stories. The best way to describe Dave Patten‘s music is “feel good pop” because even if the story starts out negative, it always ends up becoming positive and uplifting as you can tell when you reach past the 3 minute mark in the song, but don’t skip ahead or the story is ruined!

“This Ledge” is off Patten’s EP, “Off This Ledge” (iTunes). Watch “This Ledge” 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.

bg4 610 600x337 Video: iSH   Light Up feat. Daniel Richter *hip pop funWhy has my favorite new hip-hop been coming out of Canada? With the latest video from Zoo Legacy to everything Drake puts out to always remembering who the most underrated hip-hop artist of all time is, K-Os, Canada has been balling more in the hip-hop department than America, step up Patriots!

Here’s the latest hip-pop video from iSH which sounds like a radio hit if more well known artists were attached to this production. Watch the video to “Light Up” featuring Daniel Richter below. (more…)
