Cate Von Csoke 2020 Visions

“Visions For 2020” – an Eclectic Holiday Playlist by Cate Von Csoke

We are going into the last month of 2020, a year like no other. And while for most of us the holidays are very different from previous years, one constant remains: music is an important ingredient for the season. With that in mind, Australian, Brooklyn-based singer, songwriter Cate Von Csoke[…]

Artemis Orion

SONG PICK: Artemis Orion – You Are Your Own Home

L.A.-based singer, songwriter and producer Artemis Orion has a mantra for you in case bad news, hopelessness or simply the darkness of winter seem to overwhelm you. “You Are Your Own Home” she sings and lets the synths shimmer like rays of sunshine breaking through the clouds after a storm.[…]

SONG PICK: Piqued Jacks – Golden Mine

When a song starts with its chorus, our ears perk up and our interest is peaked. As it is the case with “Golden Mine”, the new single by Italian indie rock-quartet Piqued Jacks. “Golden Mine” marks the second single of Picked Jacks’ upcoming album “Synchronizer”, produced by Brett Shaw (Foals),[…]

Alaska Reid

SONG PICK: Alaska Reid – Big Bunny (Video)

Alaska Reid is a singer, songwriter and guitarist originally from Montana and now residing in Los Angeles. After playing in the band Alyeska she is now recording music under her own name. Her latest release is “Big Bunny,” an infectious track with a fuzzy guitar over electronic beats, which reflects[…]

SONG PICK: Hilang Child – King Quail (Video)

“King Quail” is every bit as mesmerizing as you would expect from a song with royalty in the title. It is the super gorgeous new single by Brighton-based singer, musician, and songwriter Hilang Child, ahead of his upcoming album “Every Mover”. Leading up to his album, the Welsh-Indonesian artist nee[…]

Sólveig Matthildur

SONG PICK: Sólveig Matthildur – Venus (Video)

Sólveig Mathildur is a musician from Iceland, maybe best known as keyboardist and singer in the spooky dark wave trio Kaelan Mikla. Solo she shows a gentler side with beautiful Nordic synth pop, bright but with a good dose of melancholy. Her latest song “Venus” is a moving ballad about[…]

SONG PICK: Dawson Gamble – What You Don’t Know

Toronto-based singer/songwriter Dawson Gamble just released “What You Don’t Know”, his most personal and maybe also ambitious single to date. The track swirls and builds, with an infectious catchiness, and I get quite the Panic! At The Disco vibe, aka the appeal of Brendon Uri’s vocals. Dawson is not only[…]

Kat Duma

SONG PICK: Kat Duma – System

Our collective 2020 experience surly will long resonate in the arts. “System,” the new song by Toronto-based singer and producer Kat Duma is a good example: almost an instrumental and without much of an explicit intention, it perfectly reflects the unique melange of this year’s emotions: uncertainty, worry but also[…]

SONG PICK: Aly Jett – Bad Dreams

While “Reverie”, one of Aly Jett‘s previous singles featured a melodic piano backdrop, she changes gears drastically in “Bad Dreams”, replacing the mellow piano with fierce guitars and steady percussions. Alone her soft, appealing vocals provide a reprieve from the feeling of unease. We reached out to the California-based singer/songwriter[…]

VIDEO PICKS OF THE WEEK: Ella Grace, GHXST, Kinlaw, October Drift

Ella Grace – I Wonder London-based singer/songwriter Ella Grace seems to be in good spirits in her new video “I Wonder,” but the song is about how a relationship can fade in times of enforced distance. Ella explains: The person I’d been seeing and planning a future with was in[…]

Irene Skylakaki

SONG PICK: Irene Skylakaki – Sutherland Avenue

Greek singer/songwriter Irene Skylakaki does something of an experiment with her song “Southerland Avenue:” while she ostensibly sings about a failed relationship of her own, she does it in a way that invites you to fill in the blanks. Then the song fades out with a 80 seconds long instrumental[…]

SONG PICK: Eric Selby – Another Page

The smooth vocals and the coaxing blues guitar in “Another Page” make for love at first listen. The new single by Eric Selby has a beautifully chill flow with lots of lovely pop sprinkles thrown in. Having made a name for himself as sought after session musician, Eric Selby now releases his[…]

Laura Jinn

Track by Track: New EP “Sick!” by Laura Jinn

Today, Brooklyn singer, songwriter, and producer Laura Jinn releases her new EP “Sick!,” a razor-sharp production, both musically and lyrically. Set to classic synth-pop reminiscent of early Depeche Mode, Laura gives an honest account of the life around her. And while she does not beat around the bush with her message,[…]

C'Est Karma

SONG PICK: C’Est Karma – Industrial Salt

Karma Catena aka C’est Karma is a singer, songwriter and producer from Luxemburg. Her latest single “Industrial Salt” is a stunning electronic track which comes up with a new sonic surprise around every corner and accumulates loads of of chills-inducing drama on the way. Karma took the inspiration from her[…]
