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 […]

Brooklyn-based indie rock trio Monograms has the sonic solution to cure those pesky negative thoughts that plague us all from time to time.

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 […]

Caralis – “Logic” (video premiere)

Caralis – “Logic” (video premiere)

Music videos – you either love them or hate them. Often times, they can distract from the quality of the music, either covering up something great or making amends for something not so good. They can be overdone and over-the-top, but some can be so simple yet be brilliant. Arguably the best music video ever created was for Fat Boy […]

Glass Spells – “Rebellion” (video premiere)

Glass Spells – “Rebellion” (video premiere)

Last fall, Karen O told Rolling Stone Magazine that there weren’t any immediate plans for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs to record again, as she was “in the full-time job of [motherhood] at the moment.” To the chagrin of fans around the word, we’re left wondering when, if there will be another album. Just as that news was dropped, an unexpected […]

Happy Hollows – “Way Home” (video premiere)

It wasn’t long ago when Happy Hollows were considered to be the next great indie-rock band, mentioned as being this generation’s Elastica or the heirs to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Their first record, 2008’s Imaginary EP, was a solid introduction to a new band that was exploring new indie-rock depths like the aforementioned groups. They quickly followed with their 2009 debut […]

For close to a decade, Lisa Masia and Marina Cristofalo, through their alter-ego Lilies on Mars, have been creating music that can best be described as transcendent. From their self-titled, debut EP in 2008 to their more recent release, the splendid ∆GO, the natives of Cagliari, Sardina have been pushing the limits on folk and pop music. Their experimentalism has not […]

Video: Instant Empire – “Dead Air”

Many bands sing about a corrupt system, and being cheated, however not many use the “Konami Code” to make their point.  On their new track, “Dead Air”, Denver’s Instant Empire sing “Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, b, a, start”, referring to the famous cheat code.  The song is a pretty groovy indie rocker, with a bassline that […]
