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.

Review: Ocelot Robot album release party at Molly Malone’s

September 30th, 2013 by | Concert/Festival Review, Pop, Rock |

Last Thursday, I witnessed one of my favorite emerging pop rock acts out of Los Angeles in Ocelot Robot. This group knows how to shred as they headlined a kick ass concert at Molly Malone’s in Los Angeles for their new album release, Etheldo (iTunes).

I love how their set started with harmonized vocals really getting the crowd to sing along to new hits like “Undercover” and “Lost in L.A.”. Ocelot Robot is kind of a throwback band and unlike many of the new bands coming out in that you know your going to get a kick ass show seeing the quartet of drummer, guitarist, bassist and lead vocalist. However they jam out, are super fun to watch and even did an unexpected rocking cover of Rihanna‘s “Stay”, which everybody seemed to enjoy.

Look out for an upcoming music video from the band but until then, stream Etheldo below. My favorite songs are “Back To Buffalo”, “Undercover”, Lost In L.A.” and “Black Mini Skirt”. Stream and DOWNLOAD below.

Capital Cities cover ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’

August 16th, 2012 by | Alternative/Indie, Electronic Rock, Electropop, Pop |

Working on covers is a sacred exercise for Capital Cities. They meticulously pick songs that they love and then explore them until new harmonic and rhythmic ideas emerge, hopefully bringing a freshness to a timeless melody and lyric.

With “Nothing Compares 2 U”, Capital Cities has this smooth electro pop/rock vibe that anybody can like. It’s no wonder Perez Hilton considers these dudes the “best band in Los Angeles”!

Stream and download “Nothing Compares 2 U” below.

Here’s some info on the original song and how it became popular: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nothing_Compares_2_U
