Sundara Karma – “Youth Is Only Ever Fun in Retrospect”

Sundara Karma – “Youth Is Only Ever Fun in Retrospect”

For nearly three years, Sundara Karma have used the formula of periodically releasing anthemic singles with frenetic live shows to drive their rise.

Now 2017 arrives and with it comes their highly-anticipated album, Youth Is […]

Favorite EPs of 2016 – Part 3

Favorite EPs of 2016 – Part 3

Our final ten favorite EPs is littered with some of our all-time favorite artists. Some of the bands are ones we grew up listening to when we were much younger.

Sundara Karma – “Loveblood” EP

Sundara Karma – “Loveblood” EP

A little more than five years, four friends in their mid-teens formed Sundara Karma. Methodically and patiently, they developed their sound, polished their live shows, and started making waves outside their hometown of Reading. Their single, “Flame”, put them on nearly every music tastemaster’s radar, including our own. Their complete package of anthemic, ’90s-inspired pop-rock, thoughtful storytelling, and frenetic live […]

Mundo 50: RevueFest II

Mundo 50: RevueFest II

A year ago when the numerous festivals were announcing their lineups, we were joking around and exchanging names on the artists and bands we would invite if we could curate our own event. This little brainstorming session resulted in us sharing RevueFest, our make-believe, three-day festival. Like what we aimed to do here, the focus was on those hidden gems […]

The Mega, Mega Playlist of 2015

Throughout the year, we’ve shared many of them through three regular features – The Melodic Tonic, The Matinee, and The Weekend Showcase. While we could have rolled up all those singles into one mammoth playlist, that would have meant a playlist of nearly 1,500 songs, not to […]

Rendition – Remixes by Henry Krinkle, BAILE, and LuQus

Rendition – Remixes by Henry Krinkle, BAILE, and LuQus

This week’s Rendition features remixes by Henry Krinkle, BAILE, and LuQus. As always, the original is included for you to judge which version is better.   Sundara Karma – “Vivienne” (Henry Krinkle remix) The most impressive remixes are, in my opinion, those that can considerably slow down a track to the point where you almost don’t notice it. Sure the […]

Weekend Showcase – June 12th Edition

This week’s Weekend Showcase is a little bit longer because of all the great music we’ve received over the past week or so.
