Artist: The Villain and I
Song: The earth from the air
Why? Through a union of images, artistry and music the talented genius behind The Villain and I gives us his amazing track “The earth from the air” with visuals to match the pure masterpiece that is its soundscape. This track was the first I heard of The Villain and I and I knew then that I would listen to the next ones no matter what, enjoy!
Artist: Jennifer Paige
Song: Devil’s in the details
Why? An amazing and hypnotizing track by former 90’s pop star Jennifer Paige, who showcases that like a good wine, her voice and sound has only improved. While connecting with the modern trends in music, she lets her own personal charm and experiences become part of the soundscape she invites us into. This track is one of those that you can’t stop listening over and over again.
Song: Catch Me
Why? A favorite of Wolf in a Suit, Braves has become a must listen band that I recommend on an almost daily basis to anyone who asks me for a band to listen. The mystery that surrounds them only serves to enhance the magic of the unknown behind them plus the guys know how to make amazing music. With each and every track they put out having a life of their own and a sound so unique that its always something refreshing and new with them.
Artist: Gabriel Kelley
Why? Every once in a while we need to bring it back down to earth and enjoy a track that truly grounds us with a beautiful story within its melody and a clean unencumbered union of sounds that compliment each other just right. Gabriel transports us into the world of “Shoreline” and honestly it is beautiful and I would never want to leave it. Through its mature and truthful lyrics he finds a home for his voice and along the lines for our souls.
Artist: Ruby Empress
Song: Escapism Deluxe
Why? A provocative and strangely enticing music video that might make you feel tingling sensations all over your body, but don’t worry they are normal – they are part of the beauty and surreal charm of this track. The disco-inspired electropop melody of “Escapism Deluxe” is pure perfection, just an amazing track that is sure to get your body moving (the ways it might move in are unknown but it will surely be fun).
Artist: Born Stranger Ft. Caitlyn Scarlett
Song: Cheating Love
Why? A match made in music heaven, the vocals and sounds by Born Stranger is complimented perfectly by the playful nature of Caitlyn’s amazing vocals. This track is truly a marvel to behold and enjoy in every aspect, from the lyrics to the melody there’s simply no going wrong with “Cheating Love”. Enjoy this indie pop/rock gem that is sure to fill up every inch of your senses.
Artist: The Swoons ft. Johann Beach
Why? A track so soothing and haunting that it perfectly allows our imagination to picture the talented beauty that once was Marylin Monroe (the inspiration for the title and lyrics of this track). With Johann’s voice and The Swoons tunes and sounds this track transcends any limitations that we might impose on it genre wise and it engulfs us within the charming scenario that dwells in its soundscape.
Artist: Recent Rumors
Song: Blow me away
Why? Indie pop perfection served in the finest silverware made up of inviting sounds and fun and rightly executed vocals. This romantic track does its name honor by blowing us away from the very beginning and until the very end. There’s no wrong turn within this soundscape, the guys have ensured the listeners a refreshing experience and its easy to see that they are bound for bigger and greater things.
Artist: Finn Matthews
Song: I wrote a love song
Why? Beautiful and honest stripped down track by a young and talented singer/songwriter who took a dive into the emotions of his heart and came out with something enchanting. With a respect and passion for his craft he wrote lyrics that showoff a certain old soul that dwells within the confinements of his body and it is something that must be applauded.
