RxGF’s “How to Make It” is a darkly infectious take on the music industry’s choke-hold on young and aspiring performers, who often have no choice but to trust those who vow to make them a star. As such, “How to Make...
Tom Flash’s new track “Home” sports an immediately engaging guitar crawl reminiscent of Arctic Monkeys, before navigating through a variety of rock fixtures — from the punk-tinged chorus to the dexterous art-rock bursts. This dexterous and flavorful burst of art-rock is accompanied commendably by a variety of vocal fluctuations, which move quickly through various structural […] The post Tom Flash – “Home” appeared first on .
Corsica Arts Club’s previously featured track “California I Follow” was perfect for summer’s beginning, presenting a sound that incorporated hook-laden rock with surf-pop harmonizing. For their newest effort, Corsica Arts Club have crafted something quite different, and – in my opinion – their best release yet. “Untamed” is more nocturnal in its deep assortment of […] The post Corsica Arts Club – “Untamed” appeared first on .
I, Us, & We are a promising new group whose first single, “Sunday”, touts a richly intoxicating atmosphere reminiscent of both lushly entrancing R&B-pop in the vein of James Blake and The Weeknd, in addition to glistening electro-pop with memorably spacious soundscapes; Washed Out comes to mind immediately, especially considering the brilliantly executed synth flourishes […] The post I, Us, & We – “Sunday” appeared first on .

The melodic talents of Alex Craciunc, AKA Boehm, was evident very early into that track, as is the case with his newest remix […] The post Boehm – “Surviving the Times” (Nas vs. Fugees remix) appeared first on .
LA-based band The Great Escape seamlessly integrate elements of rock’s past and present to create a memorable sound with plenty of radio appeal. Amie Miriello’s passionate vocals will likely be the first thing to impress; her impressive range and emotive croon reminds of a less smoky Janis Joplin. Meanwhile, the solid instrumentation – courtesy of […] The post The Great Escape – “All I Think About” appeared first on .
Hot Flash Heat Wave have been one of my favorite discoveries this year; the San Francisco-based early twenty-somethings craft a serene blend of power-pop and surf-rock that manages a bevvy of punchy hooks despite the amiable nonchalance. This was on full display with brilliant track “Turning Blue“, off the band’s eponymous EP. It has been […] The post Hot Flash Heat Wave – “Hesitation” appeared first on .
