"The thrill is in the trouble," sings Mr. Big's unmistakable frontman Eric Martin on their slick new single "Everybody Needs a Little Trouble." The band has been around for roughly 25 years now and they never seem to falter, which is to say that I've never heard...Read more
Back on February 13th of this year, I posted Sigrid's "Don't Kill My Vibe" as our song of the day. At the time, it was a little-known song that was only available to stream on Spotify. It had no music video and if it was on...Read more
Elohim's latest single, "Skinny Legs," might strike you as an abstract, maybe even inaccessible, song the first few times you listen to it. I even wondered if it was too bizarre for me when it first wormed its way inside my ears. That said, I put...Read more
interview by Michael McCarthy If you haven’t heard of rising disco pop starlet Lily McQueen yet, you should watch the video for her glittery pop nugget “Chasing Your Love” below. It’s one of the most infectious songs I’ve heard in weeks. Her whole album, which comes out on June 30th via Concierge Records,...Read more
As you probably have figured out by now, most of our song of the day selections are chosen because they're catchy. It's almost an unwritten rule that we only select the most infectious tunes we come across. There are exceptions to this rule and today is...Read more
"Why Bother" is the second single from Luke Faas, a 23-year-old Norwegian singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. It follows his debut single, "Should've Seen It." At first, the lyrics of the punchy, seductive, electro-soul "Why Bother" might sound apathetic, like a depressed person not wanting to bother...Read more
Massive, pulsating beats that nod to the pop of the '80's make Lily McQueen's fantastic new single, "Chasing Your Love," both powerful as gunshots and as addictive as nicotine gum. She's so cool that she'll frost up your headphones in spite of the fact that her vocals...Read more
"Hook, Line & Sinker" is the ass-kicking second song to be released from Royal Blood's forthcoming album How Did We Get So Dark?, which will be released on June 16th via Warner Bros. Records. If the rest of the album rocks as hard as this one we're...Read more
Terence Ryan hails from our neck of the woods, Boston, Massachusetts. His location is what motivated us to check out his new song/video "Mean It," but even if he wasn't from Boston we'd still be making it our song of the day for today because it's a...Read more
It's Goldfrapp so, of course, it's good. No, it's better than good. It's fan-fucking-tastic. Let its throbbing beats overcome you and move your body as the dancers do in the red hot video. Or at least getup and dance. It's a sin to...
Dear Readers, It is with much regret that I have to inform you that I will be unable to cover the Boston Calling music festival later this month. This is for one simple reason: they are not offering me press credentials this time. What are press credentials? That’s just a fancy way of...Read more
interview by Michael McCarthy It’s no secret that Warrant are one of my favorite heavy metal bands. They’ve been one ever since I saw the video for their first single, “Down Boys,” on MTV back in the later part of the ’80’s. Their blend of melodic vocals and sonorous music has always impressed...Read more
interview by Michael McCarthy When Sam Levin’s album Frame of Mind was sent to me by his publicist it was recommended if you like The Head and the Heart, Kings of Leon, The Lumineers, Imagine Dragons, Bon Iver, Bahamas and Jose Gonzales. Naturally, with an impressive list like that, I had to give...Read more
interview by Michael McCarthy There are three songs I’ve been listening to on a loop lately. “Chasing the Dragon,” “King of the Ring,” and “Lords of Thunder.” These are the songs the press was allowed to hear prior to interviewing members of the band Adrenaline Mob about their forthcoming new album We the...Read more
Wendy Bevan, who I interviewed late last year, has a new EP coming out on May 12th via Kwaidan / !K7 Records called Love from the Moon and today we have the luxurious title track for you. Dig that rolling bass and her icy vocals during the electro-pop...
