Last month we had some great releases on Soundcloud, here’s my 30 favorite song releases below to stream (and some to download!).

Ok let’s get to discussing some of my favorites and ones that got personally sent to us.

Video: ASTR – Hold On We’re Going Home (Drake cover)

February 27th, 2014 by | Electropop, Music Video, synthpop |

ASTR performs a cover of Drake‘s “Hold On We’re Going Home”, a song I absolutely love. ENCORE! SESSIONS is the new and exciting music series brought to you exclusively by ABSOLUT & FORWARD. Shot in high definition, ENCORE! offers music fans a unique glimpse into the minds and meanderings of emerging talents. The live sessions are recorded twice a month at Le Baron Chinatown in New York.

ASTR performs tomorrow night with The Chain Gang of 1974 at The Echo, details here. Watch the sexy Drake cover below. (more…)

Hidden Gem: ASTR *NYC electronic/alternative duo

August 16th, 2012 by | Alternative/Indie, Dance, Electropop, Hidden Gem, Music Video |

ASTR is an electronic/alternative duo from New York City. Blending electronic music, cinematic themes and pop melodies, they have created a sound that balances the fine line between underground dance and indie cool. Described as “sexy, electronic yet eerie” their brand of “dark pop” has been compared to The Weeknd and Robyn.

I first heard “Razor” and really became intrigued by their new wave electro-pop/indie cool sound. I then heard “Goodnight”, didn’t like it, but also heard “Crumble” and a cover to a Beck song and became a serious fan of this band’s potential.

Stream all their song releases below. My favorite is “Razor” (DOWNLOAD).

Below is their first video, and it was produced solely by them, comprised of clips from other YouTube videos and footage from their iPhones. “Razor” has a great pop feeling with a dark indie lyrical undertone, and beautifully energetic electronic accompaniment– it has something for lovers of all genres, and it’ll still get you moving on the dance floor! Similar to Ellie Goulding‘s new tracks with sweet feminine vocal sounds and eery electronic production. Watch “Razor” below. (more…)
