Warning, things are about to get hot and heavy up in here. Seriously, this video has multiple couples literally “latching” on to each other ushered by new comer and collaborator Sam Smith’s silky vocals perfectly capturing that feeling of the first time you fall head over heels in love with someone. In the way that you can’t keep your hands off each other and can’t wait to get them home alone. Oh man, that is the best!
Here’s a debut single worth listening to you from brooklyn-based Tiger Dare. If you’re into Widowspeak then you’ll probably dig this mellow little gem with it’s jangly guitar melody pushing it along. You might also learn a few little life lessons by listening closely to the lyrics. “The love you make in August is worth twice as much when it snows.” True that!
Tiger Dare are in the midst of recording their debut EP. You can keep up with their progress over on their site tigerdare.tumblr.com.
Long time friends (since kindergarten) Sarah Kinlaw and Bryan Keller decided to start making music together in 2009. After teaming up with artist and drummer Andrew Spaulding in the Spring of 2011, the band evolved and saw the release of an EP entitled NOUS.
For a three piece their sound is surprisingly lush and layered. Sarah’s voice will undoubtedly enrapture you. “Disciple Fix” is the second single off their upcoming debut full length Enso which they will be releasing themselves on September 7th.
Known for creating lush layers of indie folk-pop Breakfast In Fur are back at it again lending three new tracks to Team Love Records Die Pflaz compilation disc which also features local artists Shana Falana, Blood Letters, and Cycad.
I love when beach pop isn’t produced anywhere near a beach. Listening to the lo-fi fuzzy beach pop created by Nashville locals Big Surr you would never know the difference.
A few months back they released this three track EP with the folks over at Infinity Cat Records. My personal favorite and first track “Cosine Tangent” has a pretty amazing guitar solo around 4:10 which for one perfect minute brings you straight out of the fuzziness before dropping you back in for the rest of the EP. I wish I had this album for the summers I spent getting baked and bruised on various Rhode Island beaches.
About three weeks back I was checking out Stadiums & Shrines website revamp (it looks great you should have a look) and I came across Parisian “Magenta” indie rockers Apes & Horses. I must have listened to the track ten times in a row and each time my heart nearly burst in to a billion bloody little pieces. While the four piece sounds tight and polished you will see that the lead singers voice has that certain je ne sais quoi.
In “Miracles” the track below he seems to be channeling a lofi version of The Boss especially when the chorus kicks in again at 3:48 and he wails “And we were young.” It just has Bruce written all over it. It’s almost ironic that a Parisian band can channel such a pure American icon. Oh well, c’est la vie.
See what I did there with all the French language references? Clever, no?

About two weeks I was introduced via email inbox (see I do read them) to this single from emerging LA based group Oren Lyons. This past January the group was formed by multi-instrumentalist composer Gueorgui Linev (formerly of Lonely Trees). You can hear his orchestral influence all over this track and it’s simply gorgeous.
Lead singer Kristianne Bautista vocals are so sultry and powerful as they wind their way perfectly through the grand instrumentation. As far as I can tell “Forever Found” is the only track they have released, but from what I’ve heard they’ll be releasing a full album this year. Something we can all look forward to!
