Freedom Fry, “Shaky Ground (Hey Na Na Na)”

Listening to indie pop from California on a dreary winter day is an effective method of escapism: you forget the snow and the freezing temperatures. When you crank the tunes and close your eyes, you feel transported to a land of warm beaches and convertibles. Freedom Fry – the L.A.-based duo of Parisian singer/songwriter Marie Seyrat and Michigan native Bruce […]

Involved, “Radiation Leak”

Today I’m sharing a new video for a really cool electronic driven instrumental track from the international duo Involved.

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 […]

To Kill A King – Love is Not Control

I have been following UK’s To Kill A King (TKAK) for quite a while.
