SONG PICK: Victory Chimes – Halos

With its brooding and melancholic vibe, “Halos” comes right in time for the change of seasons here on the East Coast, when the days are getting shorter and the skies a little grayer with Winter on the horizon. This is a song to get totally lost in, unconsciously hitting the[…]

SONG PICK: Yukon Era – Knife Skies

Unexpected harmonies, contrasting with a poignant instrumentation, held together by an overall jazzy feel and fantastic vocals. “Knife Skies” is an incredible masterpiece of a post-punk song, which should put Yukon Era firmly on the map.

SONG PICK: Marie Davidson – So Right

When I saw Marie Davidson two years ago at SXSW she used a table full of electronic equipment to create a powerful and menacing wall of sound, so impressive that she easily shooed away two policemen who arrived to enforce the Austin 2 am curfew. But her music back then[…]

With guitars so irresistibly bright and glistening, comes a feeling of everything is possible, supporting the track’s title “Free Yourself”.
