listen: “Elevate” by St. Lucia

Even though it’s only May, there has been talk about what the song of the summer will be. Some early contenders include catchy hits by Iggy Azalea and Calvin Harris, but I would like to throw “Elevate” by the Brooklyn based St. Lucia into the ring. The band, which is lead by the perfectly-coiffed Jean-Philip Grobler, is … Continue reading

listen: Jenny Lewis “Completely Not Me”

  If you caught the one hour season premiere of HBO’s “Girls” last Sunday, my song suggestion for the week will sound very familiar. During the closing credits of the episode titled “Truth or Dare”, singer Jenny Lewis’ new single, “Completely Not Me” played loudly and boisterously, the perfect way to end an episode where … 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: Sia

Songs: Breathe Me, Soon We’ll Be Found, You’ve Changed, Electric Heart I just want to precipice this post by saying I am so happy for all the success that Sia has been experiencing the past couple years. I was first introduced to Sia with her hauntingly beautiful “Breathe Me” and have been a fan 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: Ingrid Michaelson

Songs: Everybody, The Chain, Be OK, Keep Breathing If you’ve seen an episode of “Grey’s  Anatomy”, you definitely know who Ingrid Michaelson is. Her music has been the soundtrack to several popular movies and television shows. She is like the female version of Jason Mraz, with her laid-black arrangements and vocals. I think the first … 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: Tegan and Sara

Songs: “Back into Your Head” “Closer” Tegan and Sara are having a moment. Over the last few months, they have become more mainstream with their hit song, “Closer”, getting play on the radio and their songs appearing on MTV’s “Awkward”. But some may be surprised to find that these indie pop twins have been making … Continue reading

Listen: “If I Ever Feel Better”, “Girlfriend”, “Too Young” Phoenix is a band that has been around for a while and in recent years, have become extremely successful in mainstream music.

Songs: Midnight City, Graveyard Girl, Couleurs France’s M83,  the brain child of Anthony Gonzalez, seems to get bigger in popularity and sound each year. “Midnight City” was the song no one could or wanted to escape in 2011, which was the lead single off the double album, “Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming”.
