Review: Urban Cone at Bardot *electric catchy pop

February 8th, 2017 by | Concert/Festival Review, Electronic Rock, Electropop, Pop |

Monday night I caught the recently signed to Interscope band Urban Cone as they rocked the intimate stage at Bardot in front of a small but packed house in Hollywood. They were so damn catchy with their infectious electro-pop, I enjoyed just about every song they performed in their short but jam-packed set.

 

Last week they released the catchy pop hit, “Old School” which should be all over pop/top 40 radio stations and garnering tons of streams online. They’ve been making catchy alternative electro pop tracks for years and it seems with a major label backing, they could finally break out in the US as they continue to gain recognition, they clearly have what it takes and as they got a fun sound that’s hard not to like.

Stream or watch my 4 favorites they performed live below, “Old School”, “Sadness Disease” and “Come Back To Me” and “Urban Photograph”. (more…)

Review: X Ambassadors at Bootleg Theatre *excellent

April 7th, 2014 by | Concert/Festival Review, Rock |

Last Thursday I saw an excellent performance from X Ambassadors, who debuted new tracks off their latest EP, The Reason as well as did a brief cover of “Sabotage” by Beastie Boys to lead into another one of their tracks. They even performed two songs in their encore, including “Brother” off their first EP and a song with Jamie N Commons, “Jungle”, that makes me want to see the film the song was made for.

Overall a very impressive performance from the rising Brooklyn band signed to Kid In A Korner’s label (Imagine Dragons, Skylar Grey, Jamie N Commons), the subsidiary under Interscope led by producer Alex Da Kid. I highly recommend catching X Ambassadors live as they will not disappoint because of their high energy, catchy hooks and the drums and guitar are straight fire throughout the song.

I loved all but 1 song, some acoustic slowed-down jam that I wasn’t in the mood for. Other than that, nearly perfect set and this group is going to blow up once their debut album drops! Stream “Brother” and The Reason EP below, all the tracks on that are STRAIGHT FIRE!

Review: X Ambassadors – The Reason EP

April 3rd, 2014 by | Miscellaneous |

X Ambassadors recently put out a new EP, The Reason EP, that has 5 tracks I pretty much love. It’s hard to describe their sound but with production from Alex Da Kid (Imagine DragonsJamie N Commons), you know this is a project you need to listen to! The production is superb, the lyrics are catchy from beginning to end and it’s a rock album that has great instrumentals as well.

Stream the 5-track EP below and purchase it on iTunes if you are feeling it’s as legit as I feel it is. I seriously enjoy all the tracks so stream it below to see what all the hype is about.

Tonight I will be seeing them in Los Angeles and can’t wait to hear what they have to offer live. Below find out if they are coming to your hometown.  (more…)
