Campbell L. Sangster’s single Odds Are Stacked

Can We Hang On? – New Single from Cold War Kids

Cold War Kids have released a new single from the album L.A. Divine out today, 3/7/17. If you have been anticipating their fresh offerings, it is good to know the wait is over. The single “Can We Hang On?” comes to us with promises of more honest, soul driven fare. The song asks the timeless questions in any long term relationship. Where did our passion and obsession go? Can we survive what is happening? Moreover, what in the hell happens tomorrow?

Milky Chance Ego Review

Milky Chance Ego Single Review

A unique singing voice and clever lyrics highlight”Ego,” a catchy new tune from Milky Chance. The song makes the listener think; and anything today that requires thought is refreshing. Is the singer talking about his ego or someone special in his life? It comes across as both in a sort of stream of consciousness battle within his thoughts. Of course in the end it doesn’t really matter how we interpret the meaning. The band has forced the act of interpretation and that is much more valuable.

Pierce the Veil Debuts New Music Video

Floral and Fading – New Music from Pierce the Veil

Pierce the Veil recently debuted a music video for their new, and charming as hell, pop punk track, “Floral and Fading”. It’s a classic emo hit that might seem shockingly overproduced and synthy if you aren’t used to Fearless Records, but there is something to be said for that sticky sweet and nostalgic 3rd wave emo sound. Lighthearted delivery of suicidal lyrics, a music video that nods to “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, and the never forgotten “woah-oh” laced breakdown together are oddly classic at this point.

Kolars

Kolars is the newish lovechild of two former members of modern folk band He’s My Brother She’s My Sister. Rob and Lauren Kolar have crafted a distinctively creative sound that I’d categorize as Danceabilly.  Imagine what would happen when Bleachers collide with Social Distortion – that’s the best way I can describe their sound.

Mellencamp Easy Target Review

John Mellencamp – “Easy Target” Single Review

Mellencamp Easy TargetJohn Mellencamp has released a new song entitled “Easy Target.” Unfortunately,John seems to have missed the target anyway. I applaud his attempt at keeping the plight of African Americans living in the inner city on the forefront, but this sad, nay, depressing rendition of the dire straits faced by many young blacks is empty.
