OK Go – The Writing’s On the Wall

It’s that bass guitar that is so Joy Divsion / New Order that I love.  Of course it’s more than just a bass guitar beating away, the harmonies in the chorus take it all to another level.

Willa – Stay The Night

Dreamy electro-dream-rock with bombastic drums and milky synths.

WILLA is an electro pop artist based in Vancouver, Canada. “Stay The Night” is her debut single and was produced by Mother Mother frontman Ryan Guldemond.

Viet Cong – Silhouettes

Moody rock with a solid nod to 80’s goth-punk.   Both of these tracks from the Viet Cong’s soon to be released full length (out January 20th) sound solid.


Mini Mansions – Death Is A Girl

“Death Is A Girl” is the first single from their upcoming album, The Great Pretenders, due in early 2015 on T Bone Burnett’s Electromagnectic Recordings.

Mini Mansions are T Bone Burnett’s first signing, and also likely the only record you’ll hear that features both Brian Wilson and Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner. Drummer Michael Shuman in the band is also bassist for Queens of the Stone Age.
