Mannequins on 7th Street, based in London but originally from Belgium, makes perfect rainy day music. Looking for the next Zero 7, but in male form? Well, the Mannequins duo is delivering similar blissed out electronic music and you’d be remiss not to keep track of their promising future.
“Keep Me From It,” the first single from super new Danish artist, My Heart The Brave, takes some time to heat up, but once it does, it’s an all out parade. Saccharine vocals over electronic glitches usually find their way into many an indie fan’s heart. “Keep Me From It” should ensure My [...]
New Tunng? Yes, please. You know I am affectionate toward the London crew, and their new song, “The Village,” does little to alter that. The song is 4 minutes 33 seconds, and I’ve listened to it 5 times in the last 22 minutes and 45 seconds. Math!
“The Village” is the new single [...]
A new song from our Toronto friends, Miss Elizabeth, premiered on MOKB last week, and I’m beginning to think the duo can do no (rhymez, yo!) wrong. Atmospheric harmonies and a sensory experience make “Ein Weißwein” one to remember.

Well, I held back on this for a bit so there wouldn’t be much bias in posting, but now it’s time for show and tell. Consider it a special Sunday night post. Black Light Dinner Party, whom I’ve previously written about in a mysterious way, recently released their new song “We Are Golden.” And [...]
Miss Elizabeth is two dudes out of Toronto, one of whom I’ve written about in the past. Absurdly catchy electronic pop, Miss Elizabeth is one of those bands I can listen to on the crowded NYC subway and lose myself. I’d be tapping my feet and bopping my head and shaking my body [...]
It’s bright music Monday on Knox Road! Junior Prom, a new Brooklyn duo, create some of the most infectious pop I’ve heard in, well, forever, and they’re barely even rookies. They began recording their first material in the winter and are gradually releasing tracks this summer. We’ll keep you updated either here or [...]
And for once, everything felt just right.

A mere 339 plays on Last.fm…and the music is actually really good! Oak Island, aka Jeff Zito, is the kind of artist I’m more than willing to post about.
A musician, writer (check out his blog, “Eating A Hobo”, here), and apparent cat-lover (check out his Bandcamp pics…) based out of Queens, New York, [...]
