Ive been crazy busy lately and so I haven’t been posting, so i guess that explains to some degree how much i enjoyed this song. I know Ive made it a point to say that I’m not a big fan of surf rock but now and again I’m pleasantly surprised and this song definitely fits the bill. Although the lyrics arnt that happy the song is undeniably upbeat and catchy. Well enough said, check it out.
Although mostly known for featuring on Rihanna’s single “Stay,” Mikky Ekko’s music falls in the vein of indy rock/pop. Hailing from Louisiana, he has a psychedelic sound and thought provoking lyrics. Check out his single “kids.” There’s definitely no RnB to be had here!
Drawing influence from literary icons ranging from Shakespeare to Steinbeck, Mumford & Sons is the most visible contemporary band of their genre. Using markedly folk instruments like the banjo and mandolin, they have an interesting mix of bluegrass and indy rock among other things. Here’s the title track from their #1 album entitled “Babel.”
MS MR is a relatively new pop duo out of New York. They’re debut LP was only released on May 14 of this year. With their vintage sound and heartfelt lyrics, though, they’re well on their way to making their mark on the music industry. They’ve already gotten a foothold in Europe and show no signs of stopping any time soon.
Ciara has been puttin’ on for the ATL for quite some time and has enjoyed longevity that many didn’t expecte her to achieve. This new collaboration with Nicki Minaj definitely has the makings of another chart topper for the down south diva. Cheers
Sigur Ros is back at it again with more dreamy alt rock. This video is their newest from their album Kveikur that dropped mid June. It’s a very interesting video as well! Here’s to the hipster in us all.
Ok I know this is an old song but hey I don’t care, I do what I want. Maybe just slightly repetitive but I have no trouble looking over that. I’m sure you’ve heard it before but if not then enjoy away. FYI Fucked Up won the 2009 Polaris Music Prize, seem to love destroying things, and also enjoy long walks on the beach.
