SONG PICK: Ask Carol – Mountains of Cash

Ask Carol is a two-guitar duo from Norway and their song “Mountains is Cash” is hard to get out of your head once you’ve heard it. They played SXSW this March and are planning an EP and a full length for this year. Listen to “Mountains of Cash” on SoundCloud[…]


There is an airy lightness to “Wave After Wave” amidst the powerful and strong setting. Like flirty seagulls approaching the coast, circling above the water, contemplating things while waves playfully roll ashore. Though this would tell only half the story, because while starting out all mellow, with sparse, finger picking and[…]

NEW MUSIC: Host – Goodbye

“Goodbye”, the debut single by Ireland-based singer/producer Host is a triumphant, bright pop song with a nod to the 80s. Its topic is rather sad, though, as Host explains: Goodbye is about putting your heart and soul into a shit relationship that inevitably falls apart  right before your eyes, but[…]

SONG PICK: Mars Motel – Living In The Moment

Leave it to Brooklyn-based indie rockers Mars Motel to create irresistible jangly dream pop because they did it again with the gorgeous “Living In The Moment” – maybe the dreamiest of their singles to date.

There are two things to report about our favorite dance music duo Sofi Tukker: First their debut album “Treehouse” is out, packed with hit songs like “Johny” or “Fuck They”. Second, their new single “Baby I’m A Queen” tackles the use “Baby” as a nickname, which happens to be the[…]

SONG PICK: Zoey Lily – Last Goodbye

From the NYC point of view, our Song Pick of the Day is somewhat of a counter-programming. With spring finally knocking on the door you’re inclined to think about new beginnings, but London-based singer/producer Zoey Lily is about to bid a reluctant “Last Goodbye” in her latest single. Zoey explains:[…]

NEW MUSIC: Brunswick – nevermine

If someone makes music as absolutely exciting as Brunswick, then they can get away with making themselves rare. For now. Understandable, that the 19 years old singer/songwriter/producer is rolling out his online-persona slowly but this will change quickly if he keeps on releasing one extraordinarily awesome single after the other.[…]
