LATE NIGHT: Titanics – Close Enough

Imagine at the end of a hectic day with only little to no time for slowing down, to start listening to “Close Enough”: it’s easy to get lost in a positively refreshing bliss of sound and sheer beauty. It’s all I wish for in a song to help me rewind. “Close Enough” is the latest[…]

NEW TRACK: ARI – Tiny Bubbles

Listen to Canadian singer ARI’s new song “Tiny Bubbles”, which comes with bouncy synth lines and cheerleader chants. It is as crazy fun as Lowell’s “Bells”, one of my favorite tracks. Ari’s debut EP “Tunnel Vision” is scheduled for June 17.

SONG PICK: Night Games – Suffocate

SONG PICK: PLAZA – Blood Orange

“Blood Orange”, the newest single by PLAZA, a young indie-rock band from the industrial seaside town of Hartlepool, surprises with its blend of opposites.

SONG PICK: Pierce Fulton – False Proof

When “False Proof” landed in my inbox, I listened to the track without any prior knowledge or bias and loved what I heard: a smooth, alt-rock song, with an irresistible hook and intriguing song progression, charming vocals and an overall groovy vibe. After having listened to it for the third time, I knew[…]

SONG PICK: Factory Floor – Dial Me In

Factory Floor, the masters of endlessly building semi-instrumental, apocalyptic tracks are back with a new single off their upcoming album “25 25”, announced for August 25. Their debut was one of my favorite records in 2013 and judging from “Dial Me In”, they stay course with their signature sound and[…]
