The last time we heard a new Suede song was a decade ago. If you’ve forgotten “Attitude,” well, you’re not alone. But the once-great UK band have not just fully reunited but they have a brand new album called Bloodsports due in March. To give us a taste of what Suede circa 2K13 sounds like, [...]

Njomza breathy vocals that echo throughout her track “High” will leave you just that, elevated and wanting more. As the tune progresses her voice reaches a crescendo that goes from silky to more robust and full. The melodies and instruments used in the track aid in making this a remarkable song.

Christmas music is often the worst genre of music. Often just a quick cashgrab, original songs are either ignored to do the umpteenth version of “White Christmas” or some kinda unlistenable. One of the better originals written in the last 30 years is Wham!’s “Last Christmas,” which has become the victim of numerous covers. I [...]

John Talabot and Pional have been busy this year and now they have taken on The XX with “Chained”. This track is definitely a standout piece that is a bit more unobtrusive for a “dance” tune. The breathy vocals, instruments, and the synthesized beats are laid one element on top of each other. Combined the [...]

Marnie Stern is a dynamo which is evident in her unique style of music that she produces. She has been able to do some fancy guitar work and has a way of blending genres in one track. Her new song “Year of the Glad” is no different she employs her heavy incontestable vocals, and high [...]

We have a new stream by M.I.A. it is a synthesized, super produced and experimental sounding song. “Attention” is representative of great production with the use of chants, ethnic beats, and dissonant instrumental arrangements. The lyrical content is not as catchy as past releases but, if you are a big M.I.A. fan then you can [...]

The Prodigy has teamed up with Major Lazer on their classic track “Smack my Bitch Up”. The Prodigy will be re-releasing their monumental album The Fat of the Land. The track still maintains its original frenetic high energy but is made to sound more current. It was key to maintain the same intense bold sound [...]

The commercials are on TV. The displays and merchandise are in the stores. The music has entered retail spots and radio. Christmas has officially begun. Joining in on the festive season – and one week after giving away a full album covering Sade’s Love Deluxe – is indie pop duo The Rosebuds, who have put [...]

Amherst, Massachusetts “fun-rockers” California X previously released a rad, scuzz’n’fuzz-filled 7″ earlier this year, and now they’re set to come back in January with a self-titled debut album for Don Giovanni Records. A must have for anyone into “noisy 80s Western Mass rock, fuzzy 90s garage pop, and classic post-hardcore SST sounds.”

Raleigh, North Carolina indie pop duo The Rosebuds have put out a few great albums of their own in the last decade – see 2005′s Birds Make Good Neighbors and 2007′s Night of the Furies. But for their latest project, they chose to cover an album they consider to be one the band’s greatest influences: [...]
