You can also hear the other three tracks below […]

“Plastic Love” is the lead single from Peach Kelli Pop‘s forthcoming third album, the aptly titled III. It comes April 21 on Burger Records.

Troubadour Parade – “Where All The Kids Belong”

Troubadour Parade – “Where All The Kids Belong”

“Where All the Kids Belong” is the title track of Los Angeles-based Troubadour Parade. The track is a dance-electro-pop tune that is extremely catchy and really grows on you with each spin. It’s a track made for warmer days. The EP, though, isn’t just all dance and pop songs. “Salvation Sing to Me”, for instance, borders between choral pop and indie […]

BREAKFAST – “Boris”

BREAKFAST – “Boris”

“Boris” is another single from Los Angeles indie-pop band BREAKFAST. As is their trademark, the single is catchy, groovy, and tad funky, making it a fine addition on our Weekend Showcase for February 27, a playlist of new music from new bands you should get to know.   Another trademark of BREAKFAST – they like naming tracks after people’s names, such […]

Hidden Gem: Lion’s Mouth – “Lion’s Mouth”

Hidden Gem: Lion’s Mouth – “Lion’s Mouth”

Today we present Lion’s Mouth – a duo that has recently moved to Los Angeles from Wisconsin. After listening to their self-titled debut, it really begs the question as to why they are not more well-known. The fact that this is a female duo that rivals the percussion of The Dodos and vocals reminiscent of Katie Crutchfield (aka Waxahatchee) and early Lisa Loeb, the question […]

Max and the Moon – “Modern Love”

Max and the Moon – “Modern Love”

Max and the Moon are from California and were actually one of the bands I saw live last year at SXSW. They impressed me with their live set, and I have been following them since. They seem to create that perfect blend of synth-driven indie pop/rock goodness. With super catchy tracks like “Out of My Head” and “Crazy” that were released […]

Nate Paladino – “Good Boy”

One of my favorite parts of being a contributor of The Revue is posting whatever strikes my fancy. We have no genre boxes we have to check off (or restrictions for that matter), and it is whatever I hear that I make a connection with that I end up sharing.  My hope in sharing what I like, is that it might make a connection […]

Mundo Music: Electric Youth, “Innerworld”

Mundo Music: Electric Youth, “Innerworld”

I was remarking to my wife last week if any band or artist had, this year, produced a dreamier album than Dream Boat’s The Rose Explodes, which Rich reviewed last week. Just as I utter those words, Electric Youth, the young electronic, synth-pop duo from Los Angeles and Toronto, released Innerworld in advance. Whereas Dream Boat’s record is haunting and […]

Mundo Musique Hidden Gem: Sumeau

It’s always difficult for a band to get noticed. One of the best ways to get your music heard is on Soundcloud, which is where I discovered Sumeau – the indie, dream-pop band from Los Angeles. The main members are Chris Sousa and Kat Primeau, but in recording their first album – a 7″ inch single with “Next Day” and […]

Mundo Musique: The Electro-Disco of LA’s MOTORFIGHTR

Mundo Musique: The Electro-Disco of LA’s MOTORFIGHTR

When I saw the words MOTORFIGHTR in my inbox, my immediate reaction was that, with such a name, the band must be a hardcore, heavy metal band . When listening to it the first time, my reaction was, “This is really good.” Upon second listen, “This is awesome.” On third listen, I didn’t utter a single word but instead danced […]
