[Folk Rock] Lady Lamb the Beekeeper – Rooftop

Originating from Portland, Maine is the folk artist Aly Spaltro, better known as Lady Lamb the Beekeeper. Having spent four years working at a DVD store which submerged her in a sea of films and soundtracks ranging from the Rocky Horror Picture Show to Spider-Man, this lovely artist has grown to produce a most unique and eclectic rock sound in the realm of folk music. Kicking off the tune with a lighthearted acoustic melody, the song progresses into a medley of upbeat instrumentals. Keep your ears to the ground for her debut studio album, Ripely Pine coming February 19th, 2013 via Ba Da Bing! Records.

[R&B] Miguel – The Thrill (Live)


Suave, emotionally-charged R&B breakout star Miguel reveals a special video for his track “The Thrill”. Unlike most music videos, this one does without the flash and gaudiness, instead stripping it down and focusing on the art of the performance. Produced by the gifted folks at Yours Truly (who almost always create stunning, intimate visuals like this), it’s the kind of piece that reminds us why we are so drawn to artists like Miguel: for the heart in music.

Miguel’s Kaliedoscope Dream is out now.

[Amazing] Rhye – The Fall (Live) + Two Inch Punch’s Can’t You Stay Rework


Rhye is no stranger to the pages of The Music Ninja, and with such stunning electro-soul music, can you blame us? For both the new and old fans, this post is sort of a Rhye goodie bag, featuring both a tender & heartbreaking live version of “The Fall,” and a beautifully twisted & warped take from the UK producer Two Inch Punch. Enjoy!

[Synth Pop] Ra Ra Riot – Beta Love

New York’s Ra Ra Riot are geared up to release their third album, Beta Love, in January. The follow-up to 2010′s excellent The Orchard, the LP contains this title track, which was released just the other day. After the departure of cellist/vocalist Alexandra Lawn earlier in this year, it’s evident that the (now) four-piece are dabbling with more electronics…but we’re not complaining. “Beta Love” is a well-crafted, yet simple pop song that seems right out of the Passion Pit playbook. We dare you to try and take this off repeat — the heavenly falsettos and bubblegum synths are enough to make even the toughest bro go weak in the knees.

Beta Love comes out January 22nd, 2013 via Barsuk Records.
