Fly My Pretties – “Black Hole” (video premiere)

Fly My Pretties – “Black Hole” (video premiere)

When a band sounds as good in real time as they do in a studio, like  Fly My Pretties do, they may as well forego the whole studio experience and just release a live album. And that’s exactly what the New Zealand super-collective are doing. Tomorrow, they will release String Theory (The Complete Show), which features 18 songs from their […]

Anxiety Club – “Be Still” (video premiere)

Anxiety Club – “Be Still” (video premiere)

Wellington’s motto is “the coolest little capital in the world,” and the New Zealand city has earned it. Despite a population that is just four percent the size of London, Wellington possesses fantastic restaurants, excellent micro-breweries, and an exceptional arts community. Its music scene is surprisingly rich and diverse, but you have to live here to really appreciate it. One […]

Robb Murphy – “Italian Dreams” (single and video premiere)

Robb Murphy – “Italian Dreams” (single and video premiere)

Place a Belfast-born folk-singer-songwriter into Italy for the summer and what do you get? The answer is an uplifting, pop melody that transports us into ‘Dolce far niente’ – the sweetness of doing nothing. “Italian Dreams” is that song, from the pen and studio of Robb Murphy, and we’re delighted to premiere it, along with a beautifully quirky animated lyric […]

Alessandro Ciminata – “Demons” (video premiere)

One of the most difficult things for a person to do is be honest with himself. This means being open to criticism and being self-critical, realizing that maybe what he’s doing isn’t quite working. For an artist who opens up her soul and heart for everyone to hear, it can be devastating to accept that one’s art hasn’t appealed to […]

Moon Loves Honey – “Should Have Waited” (video premiere)

Moon Loves Honey – “Should Have Waited” (video premiere)

Moon Loves Honey is a talented, dream-rock band from Aarhus, Denmark. Actually, it’s a one-man band and the brainchild of Jeppe Dengsø. For the past few years, Dengsø has been creating feel-good dream-rock with just the right amount of reverb, breathy vocals and floating harmonies to fill any dream-rock lover’s soul. Today, he debuts the video for his stellar single, “Should Have […]

Animal House – “Coca Cola” (video premiere)

Animal House – “Coca Cola” (video premiere)

In the classic party movie, Animal House, the Delta Tau Chi fraternity is on double secret probation (whatever that is) because its members violated every Faber College rule and are flunking their courses. Instead of investing their time to studying, they decide to host a toga party, which is one of the great moments in film history. (John Belushi in […]

Lanikai – “Motor Inn” (video premiere)

Lanikai – “Motor Inn” (video premiere)

A year ago, rising Canadian indie-pop duo Imaginary Cities announced they were taking a hiatus. For how long the break will last is unknown, but this doesn’t mean the band members have completely separated themselves from making new music. In November of 2016, Marti Sarbit released her debut, solo EP under the moniker Lanikai, which had critics applauding its retro-inspired, […]

Burning Motherfuckers – “Rolling on the Sound of Silence’” (video premiere)

Burning Motherfuckers – “Rolling on the Sound of Silence’” (video premiere)

It wasn’t long ago when a popular music site anointed Norway as the new center of indie-pop innovation (and we would agree). The Nordic country is also home to some of the most creative rock music on the planet. By rock, we mean the breadth of the vast  – metal, doom, garage, indie, and on and on. In some cases, […]

Fly My Pretties – “Closer” (video premiere)

Fly My Pretties – “Closer” (video premiere)

Every country has a band to call their own, where every single and album is fully embraced by the locals and every show is sold out. The fandom spans generations, as grandparents are attending gigs with their kids and grandchildren. In Canada, The Tragically Hip are that band. In Australia, The Jezabels and Cold Chisel would don the crowns. In […]

Hey Bulldog – “Stranger” (video premiere)

Hey Bulldog – “Stranger” (video premiere)

Remember when The Black Keys use to create dirty, gritty garage-rock? Their early records, particularly Thickfreakness and Magic Potion, remain their best because the music was raw, unrelenting, and full of energy. Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney were just two ordinary guys who knew only two things – play it loud and hard. While The Black Keys have moved on […]

Quinn Devlin & The Bridge Street Kings – “Three Star Cellophane Cocaine Brain” (single premiere)

Quinn Devlin & The Bridge Street Kings – “Three Star Cellophane Cocaine Brain” (single premiere)

We’re going to make a bold prediction right now: Quinn Devlin & The Bridge Street Kings will grace the Quad Stage at Newport Folk Festival within five years (and probably less). This collective from New York City is that good. They first caught our attention last October with “Deep In Your Heart,” a classic soul/folk-rock song that echoes Van Morrison back in the […]

Gentleman Brawlers – “Can’t Always” (video premiere)

Gentleman Brawlers – “Can’t Always” (video premiere)

There are two things we have to come to learn about Brooklyn/Queens collective Gentleman Brawlers. First, frontwoman Becca Fox loves to dance. In the band’s video “My Theory”, which we premiered eleven months ago, we watch her and her friends dancing in a New York City apartment and on the rooftop. Second, this is a band that will not abide […]

Anna Coddington – “Without A Fight” (single premiere)

Anna Coddington – “Without A Fight” (single premiere)

All Anna Coddington needs to do is discover the cure for cancer and win the Nobel Peace Prize because the Auckland-based artist has practically done it all. Her résumé is remarkable. New Zealanders will recognize Coddington for her longstanding involvement with Kiwi super-collective Fly My Pretties, playing guitar and drums and singing vocals. Her solo work has also garnered national […]

Heyrocco Live Sessions – “Venice Beach”

Heyrocco Live Sessions – “Venice Beach”

Every ten days or so, we have had the privilege of showing videos from intimate live sessions by grunge rockers Heyrocco. Each video features a song from the band’s excellent new EP, Waiting for Cool, which showcased a young band maturing before for eyes. Two videos have been shared to date: “Yeah” and “It’s Always Something New”. Today, the third session […]

Heyrocco Live Sessions – “Yeah”

Heyrocco Live Sessions – “Yeah”

When Heyrocco arrived on the indie scene a few years ago, they used several slogans to promote themselves. They profess to be South Carolina’s “first rock ‘n roll band”, which might be the case to the state that has brought us Hootie & The Blowfish. Their debut LP, Teenage Movie Soundtrack (Old Flame Records), was described as “Disney Grunge”, as their […]

Esbie Fonte – “Yesterday’s News” (video premiere)

Esbie Fonte – “Yesterday’s News” (video premiere)

Likely every other music fan has a soft spot for Tori Amos, Natalie Merchant, or Margo Timmins of Cowboy Junkies and likely spun one of their songs or albums to help them through a difficult time. They were like that one friend you could confide in, telling her or him every secret or feeling. Newcomer Esbie Fonte has that same […]

Ghost King – “Leech” (Video Premiere)

Ghost King – “Leech” (Video Premiere)

Last month, we were introduced to Bronx, New York foursome Ghost King, who had just released their debut album, Bones. The lead single was “Bones 1 & 2”, a ’60s psychedelic-tinged, folk-rock anthem that simply was awesome. On the same album is the terrific “Leech”. This surprisingly melodic number recalls the psychedelic, surf-rock of the ’70s and ’80s. The crystalline guitar […]

Monograms – “Downer” (video premiere)

Brooklyn-based indie rock trio Monograms has the sonic solution to cure those pesky negative thoughts that plague us all from time to time. Their newest video, “Downer”, is awash in a neon rainbow palette with the pulsing visual energy of Silversun Pickups’ “Panic Switch”. The music here is reminiscent of early Bloc Party: from the first notes, your pulse quickens. You […]

Diana Ebe – “Elusive Pleasure” (single premiere)

Diana Ebe – “Elusive Pleasure” (single premiere)

The feeling of isolation is something we all have experienced at least once, if not many times, in our lives. Sometimes, though, it is a necessary encounter in order to achieve one’s dreams, find a loved one, or discover something new about oneself. All of these possibilities are communicated in Diana Ebe‘s new single, “Elusive Pleasure”, which we are immensely […]

Amana Melome’ – “If and When” (video premiere)

Amana Melome’ – “If and When” (video premiere)

Singer-songwriter Amana Melome’ first caught our attention back in January 2015 when her Lock and Key EP was released. The EP was refreshing and inventive, combining acid jazz, funk-infused jazz, and 50s-era blues and soul music. Beyond the music, Melome’s story also fascinated us, as she comes from a family with a long history in music. Her grandfather, Jimmy Woode, was […]
