The Pass – Without Warning *indie electronic rock

July 28th, 2012 by | Alternative/Indie, Electronic Rock |

The Pass recently released the first single off their upcoming album Melt.

Here’s what The Pass had to say to us about the song and the upcoming album:

We’re very excited to share our first single, “Without Warning”, off our second LP, Melt.  For close to two years now we’ve been working on Melt and had the wonderful mixing help of Alex Aldi who recently finished up work with the new Passion Pit and Holy Ghost!.  We’re staying a little mum on the release date/label for now, but wanted to give a taste off our new record which as all bands who send their work to bloggers…we hope you enjoy.

Melt is the culmination of taking a lot of our goals when we started our band and combining it with all the things we learned being together for two and a half years.  Everything you learn on the road……what works and what doesnt……what you like and what you dont, what makes people want to smile or scratch their heads.  Ultimately, our goal was still to make a fun album but also reach new levels of emotion…..nostalgia and intrigue, longing and desire, complacency or heartbrokenness. Some songs have a bit darker or experimental sound than our previous album while others would be very at home at a disco.

Stream and DOWNLOAD “Without Warning” below. It’s a MUST-LISTEN indie electronic rock song!

Another new chill-hop jam from Aer, “Like The Way”. This is off their upcoming album, The Bright Side, dropping next Tuesday July 30th.

I like the chill guitar riff on this, the lyrics are alright, the video is kind of boring but the song is real chill-hop love song. It’s the second single to the album following Aer‘s June 25 release of “Floats My Boat.”

Watch the video to “Like The Way” and if you like the song, buy it on iTunes. (more…)

Saint Motel – 1997 *lounge pop

May 18th, 2012 by | Alternative/Indie, Pop |

Saint Motel is pleased to announce the release of their debut full-length, Voyeur, due out July 10. In celebration of the release, the band is dropping their latest single, “1997,” for free download. The shimmering track showcases the band’s unique perspective. It’s a playfully-sadistic anecdote about a group of friends sensing the world will end in 1997. The track is an enjoyable composite of sounds, blending together tuneful keyboard strokes and the twang of the guitar with the horn-section and singer A/J Jackson’s soft vocal delivery.

Listen and download “1997” below.

The band will embark on a national headlining tour kicking off on July 12th at San Francisco’s Pop Scene. Additionally, they will be hosting a hometown record release show in Los Angeles at the El Rey Theatre on Saturday, July 14th. Below I’ve listed the rest of their tour dates. (more…)
