Halcyon Birds – Broken Back

by Marisa - January 28, 2015

It’s impossible not to draw comparisons between Broken Back and Milky Chance, the German duo that has permeated radio stations and Internet blogs alike with hit singles “Stolen Dance” and “Flashed Junk Mind.”  Broken Back shares several similarities with Milky Chance – they are also a European act (based in Paris) creating upbeat electro-indie-folk music, and […]

Letting Go – FMLYBND

by Vanessa - January 27, 2015

Things take a darker, more electro-focused turn for FMLYBND who are back with their first single of the new year, “Letting Go”. The Santa Barbara fam is releasing a new jam each month (a release strategy much like killer newbies, Oh Wonder) and today’s release should excite longtime listeners because it seems as though the […]

London’s delightful Years & Years are rising up fast, and the announcement of their recently awarded “BBC Sound of 2015″ title surely reminds us that 2015 is theirs for the taking.

With her own interesting 2009 “Swedish Idol” experience behind her and the thriving, tight-knit Swedish music community that’s helped raise her, this 22-year-old RCA recording artist has already had quite the journey and […]

Loveblood – Sundra Karma

by Dustin Trauernicht - January 15, 2015

By making myself easy to connect with, I hear music from all sorts of artists, but this one particularly stood out to me for some reason. Maybe it was because it’s a type of music that, due to personal preference, I tend to overlook. Either way, when I checked it out, I was nothing less than […]
