Involved, “Radiation Leak”

Involved, “Radiation Leak”

Today I’m sharing a new video for a really cool electronic driven instrumental track from the international duo Involved. I don’t share a lot of videos unless it’s the only way to share a song, but sometimes the artistic element of a video plus the mood of the song comes together and creates something really cool. The new video for Involved’s “Radiation […]

The Lost Poets, “Mouth”

The Lost Poets, “Mouth”

The Lost Poets are considered a mix of grunge, sludge, rock and swamp blues, but I just checked the box of “really good” and “share-worthy”. They are definitely on the harder side, but there is so much more going on with the duo from Stockholm, Sweden. The duo together is producing what could be considered dark, grungy rock, which is really great. The […]

Breakfast in Fur, “Flyaway Garden”

Breakfast in Fur, “Flyaway Garden”

Breakfast in Fur hail from New Paltz, NY and are becoming a band that I keep going back to. This is another one that does not fit in any one box or genre, and a characteristic I really love. Flyaway Garden was recorded in various studios, living rooms and attics throughout the Hudson Valley and is a wonderful compilation of what seems to […]

Nate Paladino – “Good Boy”

Nate Paladino – “Good Boy”

One of my favorite parts of being a contributor of The Revue is posting whatever strikes my fancy. We have no genre boxes we have to check off (or restrictions for that matter), and it is whatever I hear that I make a connection with that I end up sharing.  My hope in sharing what I like, is that it might make a connection […]

A Quick Conversation with….Maybelleen

I love finding out about great new bands, being able to do a Q&A and reviewing their recently released EP all at once.  That great new band for me today is Maybelleen who are from Montréal and are comprised of Peter and Charles Camiré, a young brother duo. The boys have been raised surrounded by the music of their dad, a […]

Tomas Doncker Band – “Big Apple Blues”

Tomas Doncker Band – “Big Apple Blues”

I have huge respect for the blues and especially for how much it has influenced some of the great rock and roll pioneers and even current bands we love today. I grew up in a household where thankfully rock n’ roll was shared heavily along with blues influences such as BB King, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Muddy Waters (Thanks Dad!). I enjoy a […]

A Quick Conversation with…Made Violent

I have been following Made Violent for a while now and each single they end up releasing stays in rotation on my popular playlists.  The trio are from Buffalo, NY and started officially playing as Made Violent toward the end of 2013 and are definitely ones to watch. Their short description on Facebook reads “WORLD FAMOUS AMERICAN ROCK BAND” and I […]

A Quick Conversation with…TMM

I live in Austin, TX and always love finding out about a new band from my current place of residence. Austin touts itself as the Music Capitol of the World so there is no surprise that even if I dedicated all my time on bands with Austin connections only, I could be writing for quite a while. I happened across Texas […]

To Kill A King – Love is Not Control

To Kill A King – Love is Not Control

I have been following UK’s To Kill A King (TKAK) for quite a while. I can actually thank them for getting me turned onto Sofar Sounds Austin as they were promoting playing with Sofar during SXSW last year. Although I did not get to see them play at a Sofar gig,  I did get to see them open for Bastille […]

A Quick Conversation with….Coquin Migale

Last month, we shared the brand new track “Gold” from UK based band Coquin Migale (pronounced Coke-win Mig-ale). They just released their second EP Feel, and based on their new material – this is definitely a band to keep your eye on, especially since they will be supporting PEACE at The Cluny in March.  Coquin Migale is comprised of Alex Soper – Guitar […]

hd hausmann – “an island without”

We have a mystery band on our hands that goes by the name of hd hausmann. We don’t have much information on this artist. What we do know is that they are from the UK and that it is a collaboration effort with multiple artists and that’s about it.  Maybe the name is in lowercase letters to make a point that the […]

Mundo Musique: Pink Feathers – “The Feeling’s Gone”

Pink Feathers is Liz Anjos from Portland, OR and after releasing her mesmerizing track “In A Spell” over a year ago she has since guest appeared on a few different tracks with RAC and has garnered a following with her lovely dreamy voice. She just released her debut EP Invisible Lines this week and it is some pretty stellar electro dream pop. If […]

Mundo Musique: The Goodnight – “Back to Life”

Mundo Musique: The Goodnight – “Back to Life”

I have a thing for very well polished indie/pop/rock bands and the majority of the time I get into a band and then they become “mainstream”. Walk the Moon and Bastille are perfect examples for me. Walk the Moon started with a large college aged following and finally grew to blow up onto the mainstream alternative rock charts. Bastille played live last year […]

Mundo Musique: Velcro Mary – “Whatever Helps You Sleep At Night”

Velcro Mary is an indie rock band out of Charlotte, North Carolina who is working on a new album to be released in 2015 titled Static Canyon Echoes. The first single “Whatever Helps You Sleep At Night” happens to be some  good grungy DIY alternative rock. An older track that is pretty good as well is “Something In My Eye” which showcases a little […]

Mundo Musique: PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING – “GAGARIN”

If you do not know the genius of PSB or PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING, the video for GAGARIN will be a great introduction. I was lucky enough to see them live earlier this year at SXSW and I was not disappointed. PSB takes old footage and audio from historical archives and turns them into songs. As far as innovative and different, […]

Mundo Musique: A-L-X – “Timebomb”

A-L-X is a Scottish singer/songwriter who resides in London and really is an artist to keep an eye on. With his latest release ‘Timebomb’ he mixes soulful vocals with catchy guitar riffs and mesmerizing beats.  The new video is directed by young British creative Kate Moross and premiered earlier this month. His previous tracks “Allure” and “Beautiful Criminal” have even gotten some recognition […]

Mundo Musique: Hidden Gem – WOOF

I haven’t been too intrigued by a solo artist in quite a long while. I came across WOOF recently who is actually Kelan Bonislawski from NJ and he is making music on his own and posting songs on soundcloud. He has quite an extensive list of songs on his soundcloud and everything I have heard so far is really, really good. The one […]

A Quick Conversation With……Beware of Darkness

A Quick Conversation With……Beware of Darkness

Beware of Darkness in my opinion is an underrated rock band that hasn’t quite gotten the recognition they deserve. They originally formed in Santa Barbara, CA in 2011, but they now call Los Angeles home. Beware of Darkness is fronted by Kyle Nicolaides. Last year their debut album Orthodox was released and garnered some buzz with their first single “Howl” peaking at #6 on the Billboard US Hot […]

Mundo Musique: Hockey Dad  – ‘Seaweed’

Mundo Musique: Hockey Dad – ‘Seaweed’

I have been following these guys for a few months. Hockey Dad are a duo from Australia and they are a nice mix of surf rock sprinkled with a tinge of shoegaze that is truly worth listening to. Hockey Dad came out with their debut EP Dreamin’ this past summer and ‘Seaweed’ is the second single off that release.  Their first single ‘I need […]

Mundo Musique: Dead Seem Old – ‘They Won’t Find Us’

Dead Seem Old  is a London  based indie/pop project created by songwriter/artist Thom Wicks. The debut single ‘They Won’t Find Us’ was written in a hotel room while traveling to Indonesia and Wicks recorded the song in collaboration with drummer/producer Javier Weyler. The airy guitar and catchy but serious lyrics are extremely infectious. After hearing this one track, I am […]
