Episode – “Hold On (Feat. Stefan Weiner)”

episide-stefanweiner2One part melodic beats from Episode, one part vulnerably honest lyrics and vocals from Stefan Weiner. One great song. Episode has said that this is a part of a project on “finding a balance between accepting and determining your own reality.” I can’t wait for more!


The Wind and the Wave – “Don’t You Forget About Me (Simple Minds cover)”


Breakfast Club anyone? Love The Wind and the Wave‘s folk spin on this classic.

The Saint Johns – “Your Head and Your Heart”


Hailing from Florida, this country folk duo settled down in Nashville to bring us this lovely sound:

Frightened Rabbit in Concert at Webster Hall

This weekend I went to see Frightened Rabbit in concert at Webster Hall. Great live performance for the most part. The lead singer and songwriter, Scott Hutchison, isn’t much of a talker (or maybe he used up his banter in the show the night before), but he really proved his stage presence when he ventured up to the balcony among some of the audience to perform an acoustic song with no mic. The only interruptions were an offered, and taken, shot of patron from a nearby fan and one “WOOOOO” from the crowd as he started his somber song.  He captured the attention of the whole venue, and managed to keep it, for a great moment that really connected with the crowd.

Bastille – “Of The Night”

Of the Night is a dark, dance-infused loop of heavy beats. A song that fits in a party scene as much as a murder scene: just watch their recently premiered video. I love to see music videos with such well directed concepts: story lines that create a new perspective of the song instead of stealing attention from it. Listen and watch to the haunting pop of Bastille above.

Yeah Boy – “Can’t Get Enough”
