Megan McDuffee

SONG PICK: Megan McDuffee – 13th Hour

Megan McDuffee is a composer and producer, and while she is busy creating soundtracks for games and film, she also found time to sing her own songs. “Inner Demons” is her first album in 10 years and it presents ten electronic pop songs of classic beauty. Our song pick of[…]

SONG PICK: Mewn – I’m Only Talking

Manchester art-rock five-piece Mewn release with “I’m Only Talking” the second single from their upcoming debut EP Landscapes Unchanged via Simonie Records out later this month. The almost seven minutes long track starts on a bright high note but not even halfway through takes a different, more pensive turn, with[…]

SONG PICK: Jenny Palacios – Noah (Video)

Canadian singer/songwriter Jenny Palacios tells an untypical love story in her new song “Noah.” Neither happily ever after nor heartbreak, this goes somewhere in between, when the sparks of potential mutual attraction already deliver happiness. It is big pop music statement that Jenny makes here and she sums up perfectly[…]

SONG PICK: E.W. Harris – Bad Ghost

  “Bad Ghost,” the new single by eclectic singer/songwriter E.W. Harris is a glorious piece of music where pensive and thought-provoking songwriting, paired with emotive vocals and skillful fingerpicking meets modern finishing touches. The Brooklyn-based artist premiered “Bad Ghost” on Saturday live at the newly (re-)opened Footlight Presents at the[…]

Billie Flynn

SONG PICK: Billie Flynn – Hey Stranger

“Hey Stranger,” tells the story of a relationship reflected in the moment of an encounter years after it ended. U.K. singer/songwriter Billie Flynn delivers it as much sonically as through the lyrics: the way she sings and the music slowly builds hints a more extensive emotional engagement than she wants[…]

SONG PICK: 88/89 – Bite the Bullet

Awww – I remember 1988 and 1989 well, but contrary to Michael Hornby (vocals) and Jack James (guitar), neither of these two years were the one I was born in. In 88/89‘s case, though, their birth years not only make for a cool band name but also set the tone[…]


SONG PICK: CYPRSS – The House I Hate

“The House I Hate” is a not-so-subtle song about the struggle of accepting yourself and how to overcome a constant state of self-loathing. Nashville-based musician CYPRSS delivers her message as a trendy, but elegant pop song that packs a few surprises. CYPRSS says about the song: “My favorite thing about[…]

SONG PICK: Ásgeir – Sunday Drive (Video)

Icelandic singer/songwriter Ásgeir releases the hauntingly beautiful and utterly mesmerizing “Sunday Drive,” a song based on a personal experience that could have ended very differently! It is surprising and then again maybe not at all, that it took one of Iceland’s finest musicians so long to put this particular childhood memory[…]

Sam Blacky

SONG PICK: Sam Blacky – No More

SONG PICK: Johnny Lloyd – Joypolis

Not so British songwriter, singer, and film composer Johnny Lloyd, who gears up for his third solo album La La La out July 16th, 2021 via Xtra Mile Recordings. (Pre-order now.) Providing us with another taste[…]
