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.

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.

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.

Video: iSH – Light Up feat. Daniel Richter *hip-pop fun

April 3rd, 2014 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video, Pop |

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…)

Video: Chance Waters ft. The Griswolds – Bonnie *indie hip-pop

April 1st, 2014 by | Alternative/Indie, Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video, Pop |

unnamed 600x360 Video: Chance Waters ft. The Griswolds   Bonnie *indie hip popNot sure how to categorize this song but I think it has this hip indie pop-rock feel that is very fun from some awesome Australian musicians in MC Chance Waters and infectious pop-rock band The Griswolds, my favorite emerging pop-rock band in Australia and maybe worldwide!

The video is the perfect companion piece to the multi-talented Chance Waters‘ ”Bonnie,” the MC’s collaboration with Sydney indie-poppers The Griswolds. The song blurs lines with pop hooks, harmonies, swathes of live instrumentation and world class production from Adelaide producer One Above (Hilltop Hoods).You can hear elements of Lily Allen crossed with Macklemore, crossed with the jubilation of such modern pop upstarts as Capital Cities.

Watch “Bonnie” below and start singing along to the catchy chorus. Do me a favor and comment below if you know anybody named Bonnie and who is younger than 30 years old. (more…)

Download: Gallant – Jupiter Grayscale *sensual glittery R&B soul

March 30th, 2014 by | Alternative/Indie, Pop, R&B |

image001 600x399 Download: Gallant   Jupiter Grayscale *sensual glittery R&B soulToday is Lazy Sunday but I’ve decided to get out of bed and blog after lying down and listening to this track earlier today and realizing it’s sensual soulful joy with glittery beats from producer Maths Time Joy and vocal ecstasy from Gallant.

Hotly tipped LA artist Gallant has revealed a new track today in “Jupiter Greyscale”. Produced by Maths Time Joy and featured on Gallant’s upcoming debut EP Zebra, the track is a study in intricate beats from MTJ and the showstopping vocal of Gallant.

The artist has gained fans at Pitchfork, The Guardian, NME, Noisey and BBC Radio 1 with his chilling falsetto, beguiling many on tracks from his upcoming debut EP, Zebra.  Following If It Hurts, Manhattan and Forfeit is Jupiter Greyscale. Hooking up with hotly tipped UK producer Maths Time Joy, the track is a study in intricate beats and stunning vocals. With Zebra fast approaching, this track is yet another example of why Gallant is on the rise. Follow him on facebook for more on this emerging talent.
