Leagues, the Nashville-based trio, must figure out a way to bottle "Spotlight" so I can take shots of it whenever I need a boost. From the "Hey Mickey" intro to the grungy blasts of the guitars to the youthful proclamations of frontman, Thad Cockrell (I'm never gonna give you up/Spotlight), "Spotlight," the single from Leagues' debut album, …
I'm back! Sorry I have been an absentee blogger. I decided to go to California and get lost for a few days. I hope y'all didn't miss me too much, but while I was living it up on the beach I had another idea for a regular post that will help promote my love for not just a song, but an artist.
Willy Moon, well-dressed New Zealand musician, singer and producer. He makes an indescribable fusion between genres, but his music has the feel of 50s rock'n'roll. The song 'Yeah yeah' is from his debut album Here's Willy Moon, released in 2013. Simply makes you happy.
Bubblegum Lemonade is an offshoot of sorts for Lawrence 'Loz' McClusky, who is usually one half of Strawberry Whiplash with Sandra McClusky. He makes what is essentially pure jangly indie-pop with both outfits, but out right now is a lovely 7" vinyl (yes, that's right now) on the fabulous Matinee records from the former, a long-awaited follow-up to their 'Sophomore Release' album, that came out back in 2010.
For anyone curious about hearing ethereal music that mixes aspects of Psychedelic, New Wave, Electronica, Ambient and Indie Pop look no further. Bear In Heaven are a Brooklyn, N.Y. based band founded by singer/songwriter Jon Philpot
Up next is a sweet track by Salt Cathedral! It's entitled, "Move Along".
I really love the singers voices in this track. So crystal clear, and so enticing. Verses are really interesting, and choruses are amazing. Absolutely in love with the vocals in this track.
The beats are really interesting as well. I feel like the whole song just keeps on evolving throughout, and we hear more and more as it progresses.
Body of Work comes to us off of The Mynabirds' 2012 release Generals. The Omaha, Nebraska based group demonstrate their musicianship in this upbeat, quirky indie pop song through a mixture of well blended vocal tracks and multiple percussion textures. The song gives the listener a sense of open space due to the lack of midrange sounds usually provided by bass and guitar in other songs.

For their fourth album, Shout Out Louds from Sweden choose to continue in the same vein as their previous albums, but they do it so well its hard to argue or mess with a good thing. ~jk
