A tip of the virtual cap to all of those smokey voiced classics from yesteryear. Bo Saris has successfully done just that, providing us with a soulful tune that would be respected back in the day, as well as any soul lover in 2013.
This London based crooner has skills that most guys would kill for, casually draping love enriched lyrics over familiar instrumentation. “Little Bit More,” is his most recent, dropping just three days ago. Take a listen, and get taken back to a simpler time.
There’s nothing more exciting than hearing that artist that makes you stop and say, “who’s that?” You know the one we’re talking about. The one that stops you dead in your tracks, leaving you fumbling through your pockets in a feeble attempt to open your iPhone. Today though, there’s no need to bring out the Shazam app. For a lot of you, this will be one of those bands, and luckily for you – we’re here to share it with you.
Dropping just a month ago, London based indie rockers We the Wild have accomplished a handsomely constructed EP, comprised of four ear and heart catching tunes. With an infectious blend of traditional pop structure, classic rock, blues and electronica, we’re instantly intrigued.
First up on the EP is one of our favorites, “You Lost My Mind,” is comprised of light tickling of the ivories, finger blistering guitar bends and love centric lyrics. Between the electronic, repitious percussions and the distorted vocals of the lead singer, this tune is all set for the repeat button.
Our other favorite on the EP (not taking anything away from the other fantastic tracks) is the ever-so-catchy pop tune, “Body Electric Blue,” which calls on associations like Imagine Dragons and X Ambassadors. It’s buzzing with familiarity, yet still maintains it’s own unique personality.
This EP is solid front to back. Don’t take our word for it though – press play and start enjoying for yourself.

They come together via Germany, Norway and the United States.
Kaleida is an electronic duo composed of Christina Wood (vocals) an Cicely Goulder (keys and production). Their first EP ‘Think’ is set for release in December of this year and in expectation they have released their lead and title track ‘Think’. Wood has stunning vocals, a low voice that commands attention, she can make the lyrics come across however she so chooses. Goulder has an ear for the beat and carries the melody of this song with her electronic beats and her love of synthesizers. The duo shows they have a unique sound in all good ways. Keep an eye out for their full EP later next month.
New York based space pop group The Landing is an act of creation and discovery. With little information out this newcomer, all we have to talk about is the music.
Today we’re excited to offer up a premiere of “Anxieties” from this mysterious, soft-sung pop outfit. With calmly welcoming outer worldly notes fluttering across a slow, repetitious beat, we’re left focusing in on the lead singer’s voice, which is quite enjoyable. In the same vein as Mansions on the Moon or Carousel, these guys (and/or gals) have a good thing going with just their second tune. We’re already looking forward to their next release.

After you slowly climb out of bed, throw away the remnants from last night’s festivities and piece together your life, know that we have you covered. Screw Red Bull. We have a tasty serving of gold old fashioned Rock and Roll to wake you up.
Yet again we find ourselves writing about another Brooklyn band. This isn’t on purpose, we swear. It just so happens that Brooklyn is churning out tons of solid tunes, and SPIRIT ANIMAL is the latest in our findings. The Big Apple based quartet has more than just a solid beard to offer up. While that is an impressive feat of manliness that even Ron Swanson would give an approving nod to, these cats also have a electrifying sound that could get anyone up on their feet.
Today we’re proud to bring you their video for “Radio Brain,” which serves up monstrously crunchy guitar riffs, a frenetic vocal range and of course, a bad ass video. As depicted below, we see the band panicking as they search high and low for “Radio Brain” on Spotify, to no avail. Take a look for yourself!
