Lenore.’s harmonious self-titled debut album (album review)

Lenore.’s harmonious self-titled debut album (album review)

When considering some of the great harmonious folk/alt-folk bands today, the names Lucius, Joseph, and The Wild Reeds immediately spring to mind. Another name to add to this list is Lenore. Centered around the gorgeous vocals of Joy Pearson and Rebecca Marie Miller, the Portland, Oregon-based band’s debut album is a thing of beauty. Not exactly traditional folk, Lenore.’s music […]

L.A. Witch get wicked on their self-titled debut album (album review)

L.A. Witch get wicked on their self-titled debut album (album review)

Is it some sort of magic to conjure a brand new song out of the air? To cast a spell over an audience that keeps them mesmerized from opening chords to the final, clamouring crescendo? Despite the name, L.A. Witch claim not to partake in any sort of witchcraft, though they do admit to their Los Angeles heritage. Yet their […]

Heathen Sons – “Heathen Sons”

Heathen Sons – “Heathen Sons”

Last summer, I heard whispering of a band called Heathen Sons. It was through that grapevine that I heard they were rocking the Nashville scene with acts like Two Cow Garage, American Aquarium, and the Turnpike Troubadours. In 2015, they released a killer EP, Through The Eyes of a Lion, which gave audiences a small taste of their stellar rock […]

FURS – “Just Kids”

For over two years, London-based quartet FURS have been teasing us with infectious single after infectious single. It began with “Just Kids”. The song was deliriously brilliant psychedelic pop that completely grabbed your attention with the anthemic instrumentation and frontwoman Elle Wade’s dreamy vocals. Not surprisingly, the song attracted the attention of many across the blogosphere and was a Hype […]

HÆLOS’ existential debut album “Full Circle”

HÆLOS’ existential debut album “Full Circle”

The past year has been a whirlwind for London trio HÆLOS. Their debut single, “Dust”, was a massive hit in cyberspace with more than 257,000 spins on SoundCloud. It was an introduction to the band’s dark, cosmic electronica, which blended the sensual and captivating trip-hop of Massive Attack and the otherworldly soundscapes of M83. They followed that up with two […]

Good English – “Good English”

Good English – “Good English”

I’ve been waiting for that one, “melt-your-face” album. A record that rocks hard from start to finish and that is just unrelenting in its intensity with the lyrics to match. In the previous two years, it didn’t take long as Eagulls and the band formerly known as Viet Cong released cataclysmic, debut albums in the first month of 2014 and […]

Lexi Strate – “Waves” (album premiere and exclusive stream)

It’s easy to add the label “emerging pop star” to a new artist. Any individual making pop music could be deemed that, especially given the direction the genre has been heading for the past five years and possibly longer.

Mundo Musique: The Dazzling Debut Album by Springtime Carnivore

Mundo Musique: The Dazzling Debut Album by Springtime Carnivore

  Two weeks ago, we took a sneak peek into the first singles of Greta Morgan’s project, Springtime Carnivore, and her self-titled debut album. “Name on the Matchbook” and “Sun Went Black” are 60s- & ’70s-inspired pop and neo-soul songs that are extremely catchy and singable. They are also clever yet fun, and their sound recalled the positive energy and buzz of Fitz and the Tantrums’ surprising in […]
