Matt Corby: Monday (audio video)

Its a known fact that Matt Corby has been the Musical Prince in my heart since I saw him perform at Sxsw in 2011.  Sadly, Matt been off the grid for more than a year….but if you thinkg about it…..he performed at nearly every festival in the UK & Australia, it’s no wonder why he needed a break. During that time he went back into writers mode….and released his new single ‘Monday‘.

And with new music = live shows!

That’s right Matt will be performing live in Australia, so check out his site for more date information!

Be sure to check out the new single on iTunes, YouTube and Spotify.

Listen to new song ‘Monday’ here:

Honestly there is no reason why this song isn’t added to your collection!

#TBT – Matt Corby – Souls A’Fire (Secret Garden Party 2013)

MattCorbyNYC2012I have way too many videos I rarely share….honestly, I take the video with the sole purpose of blogging but lets face it I get lazy. Here’s one of the rare videos I did post from one of Corby’s last Secret Garden parties in California in 2013. And in the spirit of Throw Back Thursday or #TBT I decided to revisit one of my favorite moments in the show.

As Matt is playing Souls A’Fire a nearby train goes by and Matt briefly stops singing to comment on the train but goes right back into singing.

Matt has been on hiatus for a while and hopes he makes his way back to Los Angeles because I miss his beautiful voice.

 

 

Saint Motel @ Tarfest

Indie band Saint Motel played a free show, the Tarfest at the La Brea Tarpits in LA. There is nothing like watching good music as the sunset in LA.

Video: Dead Sara – Weatherman

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.

New Music: TicTic Boom!- These Motions

There’s is nothing like getting an email from one of your favorite bands with a link to their new music. So you can imagine the kind of happy dance I put on for my dog when I saw the Tic Tic Boom! email for their new song ‘These Motions’.

Mark your calendars –> new EP titled It’s the Heart That’s a Fool available October 8th! YAH!!

Video: Wires in the Walls “In the Rain”

Leap, Timber, Leap

Leap, Timber, Leap

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. 

Enjoy.

The Filthy Souls destroying the competition……

On Tuesday evening I finally had a chance to see The Filthy Souls at the KROQ: Locals Only show at The Roxy. I was delighted to find they were even better than they expected. I usually find new music at live shows, so I’m leery of finding music when I find someone online. I wonder will they be good live? Can they keep me engaged? Or are they assholes who’d make me leave in the middle of the set. The Filthy Souls were AMAZING! And yes they’re on my list of bands I need to see again, and again!

Sadly there was no merchandise but they did say an EP was in the works and yes I will have a copy as soon as its released. Until then lets help Filthy keep their #1 reign on the KROQ: Locals Only Show…..so go VOTE!! 😉 Until then enjoy the video (sorry its a little shaky :/)

Nico Vega – Lead to Light (Bronson Island)

Since I saw Nico Vega open for Imagine Dragons I’ve been slightly obsessed with them. At the moment Nico Vega is on tour with Crash Kings and they took a moment to stop by Bronson Island to perform an accoustic-ish version of their song ‘Lead to Light’ from their EP ‘Fury oh Fury’.

Never fails lead singer, Aja, gives me chills whenever she sings!

Also, Nico Vega currently has a pledge campaign in progress to raise money for their full length album. If you like what you see check out their campaign! PLEDGE NOW!
