Over the weekend Little Red Lung teased a new video and today my Christmas finally arrived for me! The song performed is a cover of Jim Croce’s Time in a Bottle, which was filmed in L.A.’s Blaster Master Productions studios.
When Zoe of Little Red Lung sings – I listen! Her voice is delicate yet strong, she makes you feel so many emotions.
Lauren Little, Ben Epand, Will Weissman and Jesse Magnuson = Queen Caveat
Queen Caveat, one of LA’s favorite indie rock band, recently released their new EP, Manufactured Happiness and I have been in musical heaven ever since.
When I first listened to Manufactured Happiness the song that hit me the hardest was Brave Boy. Lauren Little’s voice is absolutely perfect and the emotional range she exudes both pain and strength and when she sings…”I’m not afraid of being called crazy anymore…” I swear I lose my mind…..but in a good way.
But after listening to this EP several times, I simply cannot choose my favorite song because each song is genuinely great. Almost as if this was a small glimpse into Queen Caveat’s soul as a band. From the moment the first track, Marion which jump starts a heart thumping ride from beginning to end.
Manufactured Happiness leaves me with the same feeling I have when I see Queen Caveat live – excited, exhilarated & fucking happy. If you’re headed to South by Southwest this year make sure to schedule some time to see Queen Caveat!
Artist: The Filthy Souls (Members: Dave Green – Guitar / Vocals, Danny Wagstaff – Guitar, Mike Meza II – Bass, Topher Gale – Drums)
Song: Cold Hearts
In honor of The Filthy Souls kicking off their month long residency at the Hemingway Lounge, I chose one of my favorite songs from their latest EP. Something about this song gets to me….there’s this raw rock sound combined with Dave Green’s voice creates something amazing that gets under your skin. I’m not ashamed to admit that Filthy have captured my musical heart and I don’t ever want to cleansed!
Come out to The Hemingway Lounge to see this amazing band live along with Nightmare & The Cat and other special guests. Now this is how you kick off a residency!
Today, Tic Tic Boom! released a new video for their song ‘How It Ends’, directed by lead singer Leilani Francisco. If you follow the band on Instagram, Twitter and/or Facebook the last few weeks, you would have seen them leaving hints about the video shoot.
And my patience has been rewarded……
Its a great video and I simply was not prepared for the Romeo + Juliet twist I have to admit I was a blubbering fool by the end of this video. This video makes me EXCITED for the things to come with this band!
Save the day for Tic Tic Boom’s EP release, ‘It’s The Heart That’s a Fool’ on October 8th!!
This morning I decided to check out the Twitter recommends column on my feed and saw the name Dead Sara randomly and kinda glad I did. Well apparently I’m late to the part because it seems many have been following this LA band for some time and they even toured with Muse (not bad at all!). I would like to see this band live, I know it would be an intense experience. It seems they’re currently working on a new album….will definately check it out when it’s released.
Sage and the Saint’s new EP ‘I Will Lie’, is a well written homage to country music.
When I first listened to the EP the song ‘Love and Pain’made me burst out in tears. Not the watery or welled up eyes but big fat tears that cause me to ugly cry right in the middle of my cubicle. Between the piano intro and Sage’s voice which is filled with so much emotion you have no choice to feel….something.
Lyrically it’s completely relatable and when I should have been paying attention to the EP, I began to think about my personal life. I love songs that make me think and drive me to make changes. If this was Sage’s goal then mission accomplished.
Her song writing has grown so much since her last EP ‘Learning to Walk’ (FYIAshtray is still my favorite song!). When I first heard the song ‘Take me to the South’ I felt it was nice bar song and didn’t think too much about it. But it’s the song that I find myself humming the most. It’s the type of song that’ll pop in your head on a regular basis but not in that irritating way. It’s like finding a twenty dollar bill in your wallet – just makes you happy.
“Take me to the south where the things move slow, we can talk about life, the city been mean and I’m tired of these street….”
Now I know why she left LA for the Nashville!
To say I enjoyed this EP would be an understatement.
Wires In the Walls released their new video ‘In the Rain’. The cool part is the guys filmed, edited and added special effects all on their own. The pooled their talents together and created this cool video.
