listen: “Christmas Lights”

Thanksgiving has come and gone and today is the first Monday in December, which means in my eyes (and apparently my eyes only), that it’s officially the right time for Christmas to begin. For the next four weeks, “Thoughts.Suggestions.Lifestyle” will switch open the music page and suggest Christmas songs that you should listen to during … Continue reading

listen: Poliça

Songs: Violent Games, Wandering Star, Lay Your Cards Out I feel that for the past two weeks, I have been on a kick with indie bands fronted by women with strong vocals backed with haunting instrumentals. Based on my new discovery of electronic/ R&B group, Poliça, I don’t see that changing anytime soon. The relatively new … Continue reading

listen: MS MR

Songs: Bones, Hurricane, Ash Tree Lane I have been hearing about the band, MS MR, for about a year now and have only managed to actually listen to some of their songs a couple weeks ago. I’m glad that I found the time to do so because now, I’m obsessed. The duo, which consists of … Continue reading

listen: Miike Snow

Songs: “Animal“, “Bavarian One“, “Silvia” , “Cult Logic“, and “Plastic Jungle“ Turn on the radio to any station and you’ll find it hard to escape to influence of EDM (Electronic/Dance Music). The genre has entered mainstream culture in recent years and I might be aging myself with this sentence, but as much as like it, … Continue reading

listen: HAIM

Songs: Falling, The Wire, Forever There has been a lot of buzz surrounding the band, Haim, consisting of sisters Alana, Este, and Danielle Haim. Their music has hints of folk-rock mixed in with R&B. On paper, the combination sounds “Interesting”, but after one listen of any of the songs they have released, you forget all your … Continue reading

listen: Fitz and the Tantrums

  Songs: Out of My League, 6AM, Money Grabber Even though I have heard of the pop soul band, Fitz and the Tantrums, back when they were the house band for the ESPYs a few years back, I only recently became a fan of theirs once I heard their insanely catchy single, “Out of My … Continue reading

listen: Grouplove

Songs: Tongue Tied, Ways to Go Unless you have been leaving under a rock, it would have to be difficult to miss the 2012 breakout single for the band, Grouplove, entitled “Tongue Tied”. This extremely catchy tune was played nonstop on radio airwaves, commercials, and popular television shows during that year. Now, the band is … Continue reading

Listen: A Fine Frenzy

Songs: “Blow Away“,”Almost Lover” and “Now is the Start” I’ve been a fan of Alison Sudol aka Fine Frenzy for quite some time now. The first song I heard of hers was “Almost Lover”, a very haunting, emotional ballad about a love gone sour in 2006 and was immediately hooked. The group has released 3 … Continue reading

Listen: Florence + the Machine

Songs: “Dog Days are Over“, “Shake it Out“, “Breath of Life“, and “Seven Devils” From the moment I heard, “Dog Days are Over”, I knew I had found my newest musical obsession. Florence + the Machine came on to the scene in 2009 with their debut album, “Lungs”  and have not left since. The band … Continue reading

Listen: Mumford and Sons

Songs: “The Cave“, “I Will Wait“, and “Babel” Most people’s introduction to English folk band, Mumford and Sons, was their spectacular performance of their hit song, “The Cave” at the 2010 Grammys. Record sales went up instantly, making their debut album, “Sigh No More” go double platinum in the United States. Just last week, the … Continue reading

Listen: Imagine Dragons

Songs: “It’s Time” and “Radioactive” As mentioned before, a great way to learn about new music is from television shows, but movie trailers have some great gems too. For the movie adaptation of the novel, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”, during the end montage, the song, “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons was played and … Continue reading

Listen: Walk the Moon

Listen: “Anna Sun”, “Tightrope” and “Quesadilla” Brace yourself, you’re about to be introduced to the next big thing in the music industry. Walk the Moon, the indie pop-rock from Ohio, formed back in 2008 and recently released their self-title debut album. They have been on several “bands to watch” lists from Nylon to Esquire and … Continue reading

Listen: Bombay Bicycle Club

Songs: “Shuffle” and “How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep” For fans of Jack Penate, Two Door Cinema Club, and any other British indie bands, you’ll probably like Bombay Bicycle Club.
