MP3: The Deadly Syndrome – Whatever Comes Our Way

Date October 24, 2012

This blog has a storied history with LA indie folk/rock band, The Deadly Syndrome. We were actually the first blog to post about them way back in 2006, and it’s great to hear they’re still making beautiful music six years after we received their 4-track demo in our mailbox. I’ve spend the afternoon listening to […]

MP3: Murals – Eyes Of Love

Date October 8, 2012

“Eyes of Love” by Louisville-based Murals is a gorgeous folk song that I’ve wanted to post here for a while but unfortunately never got around to until now. Take that as evidence of my absent-mindedness, and not a slight against this blissful track which sounds like it was plucked from the psychedelic movement of the late-60’s […]

We’ve already heard the amazing “Laura” and now Natasha Khan has released another wonderful track which also takes its title from a girls first name and reflects […]

MP3: Peace – California Daze

Date September 6, 2012

As we’re quickly approaching autumn, Birmingham, UK quartet Peace delivers the perfect last hurrah for the summer season with”California Daze”. The track has a wistful, nostalgic vibe and not just because it sounds quite a bit like another English foursome. It’s just solid songwriting and a back-to-basics approach with fantastic guitar lines, vocal hooks and […]

MP3: A.C. Newman – I’m Not Talking

Date August 30, 2012

It’s not uncommon for a band frontman to do solo work on the side, but few have been as rewarding as New Pornographers singer/songwriter A.C. Newman. His solo albums have included some of his very best tracks like “The Heartbreak Rides” and “Miracle Drug and his new album Shut Down The Streets looks to be […]
