Made In Heights – Ghosts

madeinheights

Made In Heights are that mysterious band that continue to release tunes that are absolutely addictive in every way. This time around they’ve got something a bit sweeter and softer but it doesn’t lack any of their usual catchiness that always has their fans hooked. “Ghosts” is their newest addition to their music collection and it’s another noteworthy jam. Hopefully this is a look into the future for a new album? We will keep our eyes peeled!

jonbellionjpg

When new breaking out artists come along, it’s crucial for them to make our heads turn. Whether it be with their choice of singles or even the look of their music videos. In this case, we’ve got both reeling us in. Jon Bellion is a combination of cool, edgy, and catchy pop. Whether we’re talking about his single “Carry Your Throne” or just taking a look at his explosive music video for it, it’s all quite eye catching. It’s bound to get him in big lights. Jon Bellion seems to be doing it all right at this point and he’ll only continue to rise as he drops his album The Definition on September 23rd. Check out the “Carry Your Throne” video below and be sure to catch Bellion on his upcoming tour.

Sam Smith – I’m Not the Only One (Feat. ASAP Rocky)

sam-smith

Sam Smith has been blowing up the world and our hearts so it’s only fair we get a new remake of a song here or there. “I’m Not the Only One” is a track that definitely stands out on his gorgeous debut album, so it’s exciting that he’s managed to add a new twist to it.  When you think Sam Smith, collaborations with hip hop artists may not pop in your mind but that can now end. ASAP Rocky has added his own edge to the beautifully sorrowful track “I’m Not the Only One” and it’s a good one. Listen to the feature below.

Alex Feder – Moments of Silence

AlexFeder25-608x608

When my alarm clock goes off at 6:15 every morning, I groggily roll over and reach for the remote control so I can have the news playing in the background while I slowly get out of bed. Somehow I find it’s a nice way to have some educational background noise as I’m gearing up for another workday.

The thing I often have to stop and think about is how often all we hear about on the news is bad news. ISIS threats, police shootings, riots, virus outbreaks, domestic violence, kidnappings…that’s all we tend to hear about. It’s a nice feeling to feel as though I know what’s going on in the world, but god damn is this shit depressing!

Well it seems that Alex Feder knows exactly what I’m talking about. In his song “Moments of Silence,” his first verse writes the story beautifully for me. He writes “You’re not alone. We’ll all be screwed when the morning comes. We’ll all be in mourning when the screws come undone. Everything is alright, everything is alright. You weren’t wrong, I spend most of my time just waiting around, as if good news will one day just find me somehow. Our hearts are so wired, our loves are so violent. These days the kids dance to moments of silence.  Our hearts are so wired, our loves are so violent. These days the kids dance to moments of silence. Everything is alright, everything is alright.” It’s as though he read my mind, but also put a romantic spin on it. That’s the power of great songwriting; it gets in your head and it can create a story all its own at the same time.

So who is this Alex Feder, you might ask? If he sounds familiar, it might be because you’ve heard his music before under a different name. We used to know Alex Feder as pop artist Leonard Friend, who we’ve written about a handful of times in the past. “Moments of Silence” is his first official single as Alex Feder. It’s not very often that I get the time to write about new music on here anymore (which, trust me, is a very heartbreaking reality for me), but when I heard this song tonight, I had to share it with you guys. Hopefully you’ll have a similar reaction to mine.

Jessie Ware – Want Your Feeling

Jessie-Ware

The beauty that Jessie Ware brings to the music world is something to truly appreciate. Her simply smooth, soulful pipes continue to tell countless love stories and we can’t help but fall head over heels for her over and over again. “Want Your Feeling” is a catchy, classy little gem that’ll be yet another wonderful addition to her upcoming album Tough Love. Her highly anticipated sophomore release will be out October 21, and it’s bound to be the perfectly sweet sound to your cool autumn days.

BROODS – Four Walls

sibling duo

BROODS just uploaded ‘Four Walls’ from their album Evergreen, which was released on August 22, 2014. This sibling duo from New Zealand has impressed me track after track, and ‘Four Walls’ is no exception. There is something about the way BROODS combines the blend of slow tempo snares with soft vocals that produces a track that flows so incredibly well. This track is like a dream you don’t want to wake up from.

Only Real – Pass the Pain

onlyreal

Yes, summer may be winding down far too quickly. With August almost at its end and school books starting to be bought. Luckily though, that’s not stopping some last minute summer friendly songs to be released for our season lovin’ ears. Only Real brings the catchy pop-grunge sound again with his newest single “Pass the Pain”. It’s upbeat, got a bit of surfer vibes, an will likely be perfect for those last summer strolls with the windows down around your neighbourhood. Check out the tune below and keep an eye out for Only Real’s debut album, coming soon.

Eyelid Kid – Sleeps Well on Knives

eyelid-kid

I received a submission from a mysterious group by the name of Eyelid Kid, whose SoundCloud page currently only features two songs and tells me nothing more than that they’re from “Nowhereville, United States.” No external links to a YouTube channel, a Facebook page, a Twitter account…they just left an email address. So I figured all I had to go on was the music behind this really strange and dark song title. I guess that’s cool, though. Unbiased listens are always a good thing, right?

Well luckily the music brought more clarity. I found myself listening a couple times over to “Sleeps Well On Knives,” intrigued by the sound of the music (the lyrics are a little hard to decipher, but what I could catch was alluring as well: “So I’m giving up on giving up, always trying to cover a hole in my soul that’s always been full).

After falling in love with the song, I did a bit more Internet research and found out that it’s a group band that comes from Southern California. They call their music “psychedelic pop music,” though all the songs are “pop tunes at their core.” (Note to self: they are clearly sitting on more than the two songs that I can find. That’s exciting.)

Lil-Silva-What-Son

It may be nearing the last month of summer, but that doesn’t mean that we won’t be having a few more addictive warm weather jams coming our way. “Don’t You Love” is everything right, especially for your long summer nights. It’s sexy, smooth, and as catchy as they get. The combination of Lil Silva’s soul and Banks’ soothing vibe, you just can’t go wrong. Trust in the fact that this track will have you in the right vibe and will definitely be on repeat for the rest of your summer days. For more goodness, check out Lil Silva’s EP Mabel, out August 4th.

Astronomyy – Nothin On My Mind

astronomyy

Astronomyy finished 2013 with a perfect record. After following up his phenomenal debut track “Don’t Need U” with two singles that only improved on his lush guitar-heavy r&b style, he was 3 for 3. We couldn’t wait to see what he had planned for 2014 — only to see him disappear for the next nine months. I mean, he kept posting really pretty pictures on his instagram account and let us know he was recording an EP at legendary Abbey Road Studios, but his Soundcloud page stayed frustratingly silent. Until now.

Is it safe to say he’s 4 for 4?
