“Origami”, the new single by PLAZA continues to demonstrate that these four Brits are a seriously gifted indie rock band and one must not loose out of sight. The new track comes ahead of their EP scheduled for April and it exquisitely plays with major and minor chords, switching between a melancholic to[…]

VIDEO: Dorine Levy – Feelings

We have already picked “Feelings” as our Song Pick of the Day a few weeks ago, but together with this atmospheric video the song becomes even better. Watch Dorine and some fancily dressed friends roam a barren cityscape (which looks like a food market after dark).

SONG PICK: Sandscape – Artificial Rush

At glamglare we are big fans of Eliza Shaddad, who released an excellent EP “Run” last year. Now she teamed up with producer Dan Sonabend to form Sandscape. Today’s Song Pick of the Day is their debut single “Artificial Rush”, a shapeshifting track fit for an post-apocalyptic jazz lounge. It[…]

SONG PICK: Tempers – Further

“Further” is the new song by NYC-based electronic duo Tempers, comprised of Jasmine Golestaneh and Eddie Cooper, and the compelling single ahead of their upcoming EP “Fundamental Fantasy” out on February 24. With “Further”, the two created once again their very own brand of sparsely instrumented dark electronica contrasting with a bright melody[…]

SONG PICK: Esther Joy Lane – Ever Ever

So far I have learned about the work of U.K. singer/producer Esther Joy Lane only randomly via the discovery feature of Soundcloud, although I believe she deserves being talked about all over the place. Her latest, brand new track “Ever Ever” is an ethereal but melancholic synth pop piece. It[…]

VIDEO: I Know Leopard – Rather Be Lonely

The video to “Rather Be Lonely” by Australian quartet I Know Leopard came out just recently, and while it tells a rather heartbreaking story, it never takes away from the gorgeous song itself. I suggest to simply watch the video, enjoy the beautiful track and then check out what the video’s[…]

VIDEO: Black Heart – Alekto

Watch the different personalities of Corina Cinkl aka Black Heart flicker through this video. “Alekto” is a slow-moving dark track, like twilight on a winter day. Aptly, Black Heart released it on one of the shortest days of the year on an EP, together with two equally good remixes. Check[…]

SONG PICK: DarkDARK – Restless (ft. Haley Bonar)

darkDARK is a producer duo from L.A. and Austin and they teamed up with Haley Bonar, who released the excellent album “Impossible Dream” last year. The result is “Restless”, an electro-pop track with chiming synths that tells the story of two people who want to end their restlessness together. Listen[…]

3 Is A Band: Seldom Few

No place is too big or too small for like-minded people not finding each other with the intention to create something new and ideally great together. In the case of Seldom Few, three musicians came together on Isles of Lewis, a small island north of Scotland. There is Ali Murray on guitars and lending the trio his[…]

SONG PICK: HeadAche – Trepidation

British four-piece HeadAche just released their self-titled debut album which is the perfect record for fans of down-to-earth post punk rock. Taken from this album is the single “Trepidation”, the maybe catchiest and certainly damn cool track. All the elements a rock-loving heart desires are there: heavy drums, fiercely strumming guitars, anthemic chorus,[…]

VIDEO: LANTRNS – Gold Threads

Exactly one year ago we saw Brooklyn three-piece LANTRNS live at Palisades for the first show of the year. Since then, LANTRNS played many more shows and now released a brand new song and video. Watch Kaitlyn and her band mates in “Gold Threads” now:

SONG PICK: Half Waif – Severed Logic

Out Song Pick of the Day, “Severed Logic” by Brooklyn three-piece Half Waif is the first single of the upcoming EP “form/a”, due out February 24 on Cascine. On the EP singer and songwriter Nandi Rose Plunkett contemplates the meaning of home, which is not easy to nail down in[…]

PHOTOS: American Wrestlers Live at Baby’s All Right

American Wrestlers‘ self-titled debut album gathered critical acclaim and following up attention and success is never easy. Yet “Goodbye Terrible Youth”, out now on Fat Possum, can easily hold with its predecessor, it is yet again a decisively lo-fi album, packed with beautifully crafted, personal and meaningful songs. Seeing American Wrestlers live, was[…]

PHOTOS: The Sedona Effect live at The Delancey

Kai Irina Hahn of The Sedona Effect likes to share the stage not only with three band members, but also a snake. I have to admit that I was rather happy that she had to leave the reptile at home because of the cold winter weather. But even without live[…]
