The Night – Honne

by Vanessa - November 26, 2014

I’ve come to the conclusion that Britain’s two-piece soul machine Honne is my favorite new act this Fall. As temperatures finally dropped (slowly, and inconsistently) in Los Angeles, I began seeking a different auditory texture that encompassed the range of emotions that the chillier seasons sneakily expose. Honne’s music epitomizes this collage of emotion: smooth […]

Coloring – Kevin Garrett

by Vanessa - November 24, 2014

Brooklyn’s Kevin Garrett has pulled me in real, real close with this one. “Coloring” is a stunning debut, touching on the painful remnants of a relationship and its complicated, undecided fate. Tender yet potent lyrics float over delicate instrumentals with just enough punch to keep you listening through the end, although you know where the […]

#icanteven (feat. French Montana) – The Neighborhood

by chelsea - November 22, 2014

At first glance, you’d think The Neigborhood was taking a stab at dramatic girls all across the Internet with the title of their latest track, ‘#icanteven’ featuring French Montana. This song features the familiar style of glazed-over vocals from The Neighborhood, expressing emotions over a relationship split apart by cheating, while French makes a quick […]

Wicket Youth – Sego

by Alexandria - November 19, 2014

Meet Sego, the band whose latest single “Wicket Youth” will without a doubt infiltrate your eardrums for the next few weeks. I think you’ll agree that the Los Angeles duo, Spencer Peterson and Thomas Carroll, brings forth the same spellbinding vibes found in the works of LCD Soundsystem and Bloc Party mixed with a dash […]

Paranoia – Max Frost

by Marisa - November 11, 2014

Since first listening “White Lies” last May, I have remained a huge fan of the immensely gifted Max Frost. After he released his Low High Low EP, the Austin native has just wrapped up a tour with Fitz and the Tantrums, kept the fans appeased with weekly covers on his Youtube page, and been working on his forthcoming full-length album. Off that […]

Wicked Ones – DOROTHY

by Alexandria - November 8, 2014

Remember when rock music used to be raw, manic, wickedly soulful and all around badass? Well that old school style is finally back thanks to the Los Angeles-based band, DOROTHY. While it seems the recent trend in music has been to decorate songs with bouncy, playful pop synths, DOROTHY is much too talented for those […]

Around the Bends – Osca

by Marisa - October 13, 2014

Over the past few months, London four-piece Osca been quietly dropped two standout singles, “Blood” and “Illume,” off their upcoming Blood EP that drops November 17th. These first releases have garnered a justifiably impressive amount of critical acclaim and blogger love. Their latest song, “Around the Bends,” follows suit, an inspiring feel-good indie-pop track that is stirring and soothing […]

Directed by Colm Dillane of Kid Super, this is a bohemian trip into the inner dimensions of a personal relationship. The video aims to […]
