Song Pick of the Day




SONG PICK: Henry Jamison – American Babes

On the heel of Henry Jamison’s upcoming album “Gloria Duplex” out on February 8 via Akira Records arrives the absolutely gorgeous “American Babes”, with distinct story telling, exquisite production and vocals to get lost in. As if this was not yet sufficient, “American Babes” also features a subtle at first but long-lasting serious catchiness. It[…]

SONG PICK: Woman’s Hour – Luke

“Conversations” the debut album by U.K. trio Woman’s Hour was one of my favorite albums in 2014. There was silence around the band since then and they actually broke up while working on their second album “Ephyra.” But fortunately they are back and the record is ready for release on[…]

SONG PICK: Hanford Reach – Asunder

Mid 80s and early 90s guitar driven post-punk never fully disappeared but it seems to pop up again more often, especially in New York as neo-psych duo Hanford Reach are proof. The sparsely arranged “Asunder” marks the lead single from their just released EP “Nathalie” (stream here). “Asunder” takes the listener[…]

SONG PICK: Butterjack – Hot Sauce

“Hot Sauce” has ‘party music’ written all over its album cover bottle, well not literally but figuratively. The new single by English singer-producer Aiden Grimshaw aka Butterjack is one hot and sexy dish, and a major dance floor invitation. It is still only February but I can easily see this fun and[…]

SONG PICK: Thayer Sarrano – Grace Goes On

Thayer Sarrano is a singer/songwriter from Athens, Georgia and her new song “Grace Goes On” moves along an effect-heavy guitar line that keeps you on the edge for the entire song. But what is the chiming sound in the beginning? Thayer explains: That instrument is a Chimeatron, It was in[…]

SONG PICK: Sylvie Kreusch – Please To Devon

Belgian singer/songwriter Sylvie Kreusch goes full throttle into this relationship, no prisoners taken. A heavy piano line and an ominously screeching saxophone add serious drama to Sylvie’s second single “Please To Devon”: “I’m no a person to cross to, baby,” she chants and you know she means business. Listen to[…]

SONG PICK: Bestman – 143

Sure, music does not know boundaries and is also not restricted to certain areas to originate from, yet I was utterly surprised to learn that the joyous, bright and dance floor-ready “143” is the creation of a synth-pop band in Chicago! Said synth-pop act is Bestman, and fronted by singer/songwriter Brian[…]

SONG PICK: FEET – English Weather

Last year, English indie-rockers FEET got some fine buzz going with their singles “Petty Thieving” and “Backseat Driver”, but the praise will only continue with the release of their new single “English Weather”. The song was written during what the band now calls the “Barn Sessions”, when they had some time in-between[…]

SONG PICK: Blu DeTiger – In My Head

The beat that is in Blu DeTiger’s head starts slowly, almost as a distraction but not before long it turns into a full-fledged high-energy disco party. The message is simple: music can be the best medicine and a good rhythm can indeed drive you forward. Blu is based in New[…]
