Video: Jessie Jones – Quicksilver Screen

Jessie Jones dances through the Southern Californian landscape in her video for Quicksilver Screen. The retro look fits well to the psychedelic pop song with a weird edge. I love it and will now listen to her selft titled debut album.

Song Pick of the Day: Sabina Ddumba – Not Too Young

It’s Friday, so let’s get the party started with this Song Pick of the Day Not Too Young by Swedish singer Sabina Ddumba. She’s obviously upset that some say she’s too young to understand love. She’s probably right, but I hope she made the right decision.

Song Pick of the Day: St. Tropez – Son Of God

Before you even had a chance to further think about Son Of God and what’s really going on here, the track’s already over with only 2 minutes and 17 seconds yet this was plenty of time to make you crave more. Just hit the play-button again, and start Son Of[…]

3 Is A Band: XY&O (xyando)

Always on the look-out for cool trios, I came across XY&O  (also spelled xyando) last week, and was immediately hooked! Couldn’t believe my luck. It was one of these accidental stumbles -my favorite- me just browsing around SoundCloud and picking up on songs. Fahrenheit got released less than two weeks  ago and[…]

Song Pick of the Day: Lauren Marsh – Promise

Our Song Pick of the Day is the upbeat pop anthem Promise by New Jersey singer/songwriter Lauren Marsh. It’s is about shrugging off bad experiences and enjoying life to the fullest and that message cannot be reinforced too often.

VIDEO: Nicky Venus – Legacy

How about a video for Wednesday and making this our very own #VideoWednesday?! We have something brand new and smokin’ hot for you with the beautifully haunting “Legacy” by San Diego resident Nicky Venus. “Legacy” is electro-pop at its best, think mid-80s Depeche Mode and then some. The video itself is[…]

PHOTOS: Lena Fayre plays her elegant pop at The Delancey (CMJ)

L.A. artist Lena Fayre has been around a few years and it is entirely my fault that I haven’t heard about her until last CMJ, where she fortunately played a few showcases, among them the Atypical Sounds/Audiofemme takeover at The Delancey. See photos of her show below and listen to[…]

PHOTOS: DF3 brought joyful synth pop to Leftfield (CMJ)

DF3, a synth pop trio from California via Mexico and Brooklyn, were scheduled to play two shows for CMJ 2015, both at equally intimate dance clubs on the Lower East Side. First up was their show at Leftfield, which I decided to catch. Two days later, a show at Fat[…]

Song Pick of the Day: Rare Monk – California

Casually letting SoundCloud run, I came across a one year old track by Portland’s (Oregon) Rare Monk and checked to see if there’s by any chance a newer, equally cool song and holy cow – there’s the yesterday released California! What. A. Song. The chorus goes California will burn and this already[…]

PHOTOS: Gold Child charms CMJ

We saw Gold Child, the band of singer/songwriter Emily Fehler, two times at CMJ: one was in the enchanted setting of the rooftop on The Delancey, which mixed tropical plants with Northeastern fall decoration. There she played an acoustic set, together with drummer Jake Beal and guitarist David Von Bader,[…]

Video: Ellie Herring – Why’d You

I still can get over Ellie Herring jumping into that muddy lake on such a dreary fall day. But apparently what she finds there makes it worth for her. The rest of us can enjoy the soundtrack with its relentless techno beat and the cool vocals. And by the way,[…]

Song Pick of the Day: Dahlia Sleeps – Breathe

Start the week with this beautiful Song Pick of the Day Breathe by London duo Dahlia Sleeps. With its restraint, emotional vocals and build up it reminds me on Banks’ work. I didn’t find anything else by them yet, but will keep my eyes open.

PHOTOS: Lara Snow live in New York City

We’ve already posted a bunch about Lara Snow, a new electro pop artist from Tel Aviv who visited New York for CMJ. She and her collaborator and drummer Jonathan Harpak convinced us at two shows a few weeks ago with energetic and catchy songs and an overall great performance. Listen[…]
