Review: Walk The Moon, Saint Motel and Holychild at The Greek Theatre

November 3rd, 2015 by | Alternative/Indie, Concert/Festival Review, Electronic Rock, Electropop, New Wave, Pop, Rock, synthpop |

The best concert I attended this year was seeing Walk The Moon, Saint Motel and a bit of HOLYCHILD live at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. It was an incredible show mostly because of Walk The Moon, Saint Motel and the perfect weather at the magical outdoor intimate venue of The Greek, where almost a full moon led to an incredible night of catchy tunes.

SXSW 2011 hangover: W-Z

April 20th, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Dance, Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop, Rock |

I know Coachella ended yesterday and SXSW ended a few weeks ago so I promise this is the last I mention how many dope artists were at that event, not mention on twitter how much I wished I could have gone to Coachella, SXSW and basically any music festival. Time to contact these festivals and demand press passes?

Anyways last leg of my SXSW 2011 coverage includes female Asian rockers, some hip-hop over video game beats and my favorite song with the word “Whale” in it.

Female Asian rockers!!! Wonfu are cute because you don’t understand what their saying but you just like how catchy and pleasant they sound for a retro rock band.
WonFu – Do Re Mi
Next is a band that seems to have the ingredients to blow up and be heard on rock radio stations throughout the US. Walk The Moon is catchy, vocals sound unique yet appealing, overall an enjoyable sound.
Walk The Moon – Anna Sun
YTCracker is a website hacker (breaking into several US government sites), DJ, nerdcore hip-hop artist and owns his own independent record label. When I mean nerdcore I’m talking big nerdy hip-hop style with real dope nintendo instrumentals.

The build-up is one of the best I have heard for a non-electronic song. Well I can’t really think of many other songs and remember a great build-up but with Yellow Ostrich‘s “Whale”, I enjoy how it all starts from one sound and evolves with many more sounds as the song progresses.
Yellow Ostritch – WHALE
Lastly for an upbeat alternative electronic/hip-hop sound is WICKER with “People Going Crazy”. This group already sounds better than 3OH!3 and All Out, two other artists that have a similar sound.
