Moon Kissed – Run Away

NYC plays host to all sorts of musical styles and types - on this occasion we meet the chirpy alt rock trio of Moon Kissed. These girls are ridiculously talented and making some infectious uplifting pop rock type stuff. I'm not one to listen to this style usually to be perfectly honest - however the... Continue Reading →

Sister Ivy – Dark Magic

I put this one on the back burner last night and had a re-listen this evening, yes, I was right, it is quite the mellow tune indeed. Sister Ivy is a Jazz Soul outfit from North Carolina with a nice and chilled out vibe going on, which gets my support. The languid style of lead... Continue Reading →

Porch Kat – The Last Piece of My Mind

A stylish four piece from Indiana - Porch Kat are a smooth fusion rock band playing very well-rounded and uplifting jingles. These guys are gathering ground day-by-day over in the states and I'm liking their sounds. The Last Piece of My Mind is a little gem of a thing really that begins with a nice... Continue Reading →

LEISURE – On my mind

We were lucky enough to cop a few tickets for Auckland's gem of a band LEISURE in Oslo, London on May the 3rd. Their new release 'On my mind' is a feel good anthem if I've ever heard one. Without a release in just over three years, I was beginning to get worried that these... Continue Reading →

MOTTRON – Lighter

Brooding synths litter this debut from new French pop act MOTTRON from the outset. The song plods along purposefly and eerily - the intensity continues throughout and an acidic synth melody drives home it's powerful intentions. The electronic production of this song reminds me slightly of something 'Son of Kick' would have produced a few... Continue Reading →

Clément Froissart – Peupleraie

Very nicely assembled synth-pop stuff here from French artist Clément Froissart. This is his new solo project as he splinters from his band 'Concorde'. This song and it's eerie drone synth running throughout (similar to Beach House - Norway) really stands out from first listen. This is just a superbly written piece of emotive music,...

Kalabrese – Ligestuetz (Ft. Lara Stoll)

Very interesting sounds here from Zurich's Kalabrese! I know this fella from before and his brilliant 2014 indie disco track 'Kafi Lied' where he sang nice and pensively alongside Sarah Palin. This new one is ripped from a new three song EP 'Let Me Be Your Princess' and gets the write up due to it's... Continue Reading →

The Tallest Man On Earth – I’m a Stranger Now

I don't think I have written about 'The Tallest Man on Earth' on this site before. No idea why I haven't really as he is completely in the A class of musicians of our generation! His ability to match the most complex guitar plucking with his compelling voice seamlessly makes him a golden treasure. I... Continue Reading →

Sparrows – Do You Wanna Dance?

Gold from Sydney based Australian artist Jessica Nitties AKA 'Sparrows' - uplifting stuff to say the least. This was my first tune I've found through The Hype Machine and I'm extremely glad I persevered on my search through the heaps of stuff on that platform. 'Do you wanna Dance' opens with an intriguing, brooding and... Continue Reading →
