Premiere: Strangeheart – Strangeheart

By Will Oliver, April 15th 2014


L.A. electronic indie-pop act Strangeheart are gearing up the release for their anticipated debut album A Common Theme, which will be released on May 6 (iTunes).

Last year we posted the band’s highly enjoyable debut single “In Another Life” and here we are a year later with the exclusive premiere of “Strangeheart”, the (self-titled) first single off the album.

The band layer on the synths and pile on the hooks. causing a shimmering burst of energy that just takes you over while listening. There’s the pop elegance of Empire Of The Sun found in the chorus, along with the live instrumentation of acts like Passion Pit, which separates Strangeheart from the rest of the pack. They’re the real deal, and this track is as enjoyable as one you’ll find today, or any day.

We are happy to premiere the stream of “Strangeheart”, which you can listen to below.

[new]: The Black Keys – Turn Blue

By Will Oliver, April 14th 2014

The Black Keys - Turn Blue

The Black Keys new album Turn Blue comes out on May 13 via Nonesuch Records. We already heard first single “Fever”, and now they have hit back with the title track.

We just have to accept that their old blues-inspired garage rock days are all but over at this point. “Turn Blue” sounds like something that could have been released on El Camino. The vibe on this one is very chill and laid back, something that plenty of people will enjoy this summer with a little something burning. I’m liking it more than “Fever”, which is a good sign for the rest of the album.

Stream “Turn Blue” below.

Odd Hours – Khaleesi

By Will Oliver, April 14th 2014

Odd Hours

Odd Hours are a male/female duo out of Detroit, not Westeros. Although the duo’s new single is given the title of “Khalessi”, something that will ring oh too familiar for fans of Game Of Thrones.

“Khalessi” is a hard-hitting track with some of that dirty garage rock sound that captivated the Yeah Yeah Yeahs in the early 00′s. It’s a song that craves some drunken moshing in a dirty club where the song is free to work its magic on all those who are willing to let it.

Enjoy below.

Beverly Girl – In The Street

By Will Oliver, April 14th 2014

Beverly Girl

Out of Helsinki, Finland come quartet Beverly Girl. Their sound is not an easy one to define to descriptive terms, as there’s quite a blend of mixtures going on in their sound.

Take “In The Street”, there are dance/synth-pop elements there, mixed with a noisy rock sound and even some funk. It bustles out of the gate with a unique energy and does so without losing any steam along the way.

It’s the lead single off of their debut album Feather and Dust, which is due out on May 22.

It’s a rather refreshing listen, and you can check it out right now below.

Books On Fate – Myth Of Trust

By Will Oliver, April 14th 2014

Books On Fate

Books On Fate is the project of San Francisco native Adam Dishart. Playing pop music tinged with melancholy, his latest single “Myth Of Trust” certainly lives up to that description and then some.

He links artists such as The Smiths and Mark Kozelek as influences, but I hear some Placebo in the new single. There’s heavy weight put on his vocals which guide the way for the rest of the track to work its magic.

Check out “Myth Of Trust” below.

Gasmilk – 2 Of Us

2 Of Us Single Cover Art

In March we shared with you a fun track from Oakland artist Gasmilk called “Slow” that was set to be featured on his debut EP.

He’s returned with another EP cut, this time it’s a track called “2 Of Us.” It’s a delightful synth-pop anthem with a heartache for love. A very enjoyable track and another reason to keep an eye on Gasmilk.

Enjoy “2 Of Us” below.

James Chance has recently been signed to True Groove Records, and to celebrate he’s released a special James Brown cover. He got together with The True Groove All-Stars and recorded a cover of Brown’s “I Don’t Want Nobody To Give Me Nothing.”

It’s a soulful cover, with plenty of the jazzy aspects required.

Sigur Ros Game Of Thrones

Last nights episode of Game Of Thrones was one of those episodes that just left you stunned. No spoilers here of course, but if you have yet to see it, what are you waiting for?

Sigur Rós made a special little cameo during last night’s episode – a rather hilarious bit actually. They also contributed a new cover of the songs brooding anthem “The Rains Of Castamere”, which The National covered two seasons ago.

Sigur Rós give the cover their own haunting spin, keeping the brooding nature very much in tact. It’s wonderful, as is everything Sigur Rós touch.

Listen to their version below.
