The Indie-Folk four piece band Tors is releasing a much anticipated EP entitled Merry Go Round next month and judging by the title track, which was released this week, there is much to get excited about. On the criteria of meaningful lyrics, vocal harmonics, and dance-ability, the band gets high marks across the board.
Song of the Day from Nashville’s Jessie Early
Indie pop artist Jessie Early is releasing her new EP Wild Honey on March 31. “Body Can’t Hold” is one of the debut singles. Early is from Nashville, where many great artists have emerged through the years. There seems to be a bit of musical magic in that place, and it looks like Jessie got a wave of the wand.
SOTD: The Classic Crime – Holy Water
After a five year hiatus, Seattle-based The Classic Crime are back with a vibrant, hopeful new track. “Holy Water” is the first track off of their forthcoming album How To Be Human. If “Holy Water” is a sign of what is in store on the album, we are all in for a treat.
New Music from Campbell L. Sangster
If you were to delve into Campbell L. Sangster’s (a.k.a Lin Sangster) background, you would find quite an impressive resume. Originally from Liverpool, now in London, she has been on the music scene since the eighties. She has composed/scored music for several documentaries, feature films, and T.V., been in a few bands and had two sessions with John Peel on BBC.
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 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.
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 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.
