These folks may be popular, but it’s the first I’m hearing of them, and damn am I smitten. Margret Ran Magnusdóttir, an openly gay singer, fronts the Icelandic Vök trio, and I only mention that because she’s made a point of sharing how her story, from an Icelandic perspective, has influenced her music. Regardless of what’s influenced her […]
Monophona, you’ve impressed me. “Thumb” sticks out like a sore one in the best way possible – it’s madly unique with acoustic instrumentation, sampled backgrounds, and dark/edgy atmospherics. All in all, it adds up to an odd assortment of beautiful sounds and a track that I’m finding tricky to get out of my […]
Since I usually don’t post on the weekends, it would be wise to give you more music on Fridays. Lucky for us, Mansions on the Moon just released their new s/t album, and it’s thoroughly impressive. They use their softer acoustic skills more this time around (which we knew they already had from […]
It’s time for a little late night drive. Passing through city lights, everyone out and wasted, I’m pretending to know their conversations. Windows closed, the silence in my car larger than the life outside of it. Some holding hands, others dancing on the sidewalks, more running through the streets. I grip the cold […]
Alice Lake has returned to my life in convincing fashion with her debut EP, The Evolution. Mixing sounds that you may not typically hear together — tender singer/songwriter vocals with some heavy electronic/experimental backing — Alice and the Glass Lake provide a delightfully meandering album. It’s clear, however, that the songs are carefully crafted […]

Fallulah makes a quick return to Knox Road (see previously posted “Out Of It”) with her latest head-bopping single, “Dried Out Cities.” The Danish superstar is delivering pop hit after pop hit and there’s no slowing down in sight. Enjoy the ride while it lasts.

Wildlife Control, fast becoming one of my favorite new bands, is back with “Ages Places.” Love the build-up in this one.
See my previous post about them and don’t be afraid to hop on their bandwagon as it steamrolls its way through indiedom.

I guess I’m in a “luminous” mood this week? Two posts in a row with luminous in the title? Yeah, bizarre. But good thing that doesn’t stop me from posting! Last Lynx are out with their new killer single, “Luminous Blue,” on the heels of the massive success of “Killing Switch,” which, despite […]
Fallulah, one of my favorite Danish artists and occupying space on many a mix I have made, recently teamed up with our good friends over at Danger Village PR. People I like joining together? Always a good thing. And I have quickly been satisfied, as the catchy singer/songwriter just re-released her pop hit, […]
