Mundo Musique Hidden Gems: Julia Holter – Pushkin

I always find it really interesting to see how a song came to be.  This week, Julia Holter was interviewed by Hrishikesh Hirway on his fantastic podcast Song Exploder where musicians talk about how one of their songs came into existence. On her episode, Holter talked about the composition of her song “Horns Surrounding Me” off of last year’s Loud City Song.  In the […]

Mundo Musique: Max Frost –  ‘Paranoia’

Mundo Musique: Max Frost – ‘Paranoia’

Max Frost is from Austin and I’m super excited he has a new single out . Frost has a way of writing a song with serious content and turn it into a track you really want to move to. His most popular single last year was ‘White Lies‘,  and for a while I couldn’t keep it off repeat.   ‘White Lies’ is about a relationship full of […]

Mundo Musique: Coquin Migale – ‘Gold’

Mundo Musique: Coquin Migale – ‘Gold’

Coquin Migale came out with their debut EP last year which was a great starting point for this band.  If you are looking for a funny video this week – check out their home made “unofficial video” for last year’s release Forty Four. The video totally confirms my first original thought – that these lads would be super cool to hang out with. […]

Mundo Musique: The Decemberists “Make You Better”

Colin Meloy has been one of my favorite songwriters for quite some time now. I luckily caught his solo set at Newport in 2013, and that afternoon he promised us some new Decemberists music. Over a year later, the band has shared “Make You Better” from What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World which will be out on January […]

Mundo Musique: Sumeau Covers The Misfits, Paul McCartney, & Taylor Swift

One of my favourite music discoveries of the year is LA-based, indie psych-pop duo Sumeau, who released a “hidden gem” with their self-titled album earlier this year. Over the past few weeks, Kat Primeau and Chris Sousa released two covers from some extremely popular artists, putting their own psych-pop touches to the tracks. I admit that I’m quite biased when […]

New York’s Keith Varick goes by just his last name, Varick.  On November 4th, Varick is going to release his debut record, Boundless EP.

Mundo Musique: Leon Bridges

Mundo Musique: Leon Bridges

Fort Worth, Texas singer and guitarist Leon Bridges released two incredible tracks last week, “Coming Home” and “Better Man”.  It’s 100% authentic throwback soul, and rhythm and blues.  There has been a bit of a modern revival with artists like Gary Clark Jr, but Bridges’ music feels more like early Sam Cooke, production included. And that’s not a bad thing, […]

Mundo Musique: Weezer’s “Everything Will Be Alright In The End”

I wasn’t originally going to write about Weezer today, but I gave Everything Will Be Alright In The End a chance last night, and I couldn’t help myself.  This is the Weezer I love, carefree yet intelligent and quirky.  Rivers Cuomo channels Rivers Cuomo of 20 years ago, and that leads to a pretty memorable and fun record, especially for […]

Mundo Musique: Screaming Females “Wishing Well”

“Wishing Well” is not your typical Screaming Females song.  It’s a power pop track from the punk rock trio from New Jersey.  It’s been described as “family-friendly” and that’s true, it’s poppy, and it’s even got a little 60’s R&B style solo to it, but it does have a bit of a roar and Marissa Paternoster’s unmistakable voice. It’s a […]
