New Music: Pigeon John | The Bomb

4 Jan

 

For most of this past decade it can remembered with the music industry against the ropes, ducking and diving, desperately avoiding that knock-out blow. But, like a Rocky montage, the show is only about to begin, so as we enter a new year lets come out swinging. *Ding ding* round 11 and welcome Pigeon John.

Hit random on my iTunes this morning and this little gem came blasting out. Turned my speakers up loud. Forgot, the lovely guys at Bank Robber Music sent me a beautiful digital hamper with some new and old tunes to enjoy! And boy am I enjoying them!

If you like the swinging sounds of Cee-Lo this is definitely someone you should be looking out for. With wit, charisma and a smooth flow I can’t help but say great things about Sunny Cal Hip-Hop Indie chap! Even Volkswagen loves this track!

14 Dec

Indie-Folk group, Noah And The Whale bring Christmas a little early with two new songs streaming. The upbeat “LI.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.” shows a more obvious pop side than usual, while remaining true to the sound they have crafted for themselves.

Head over to www.noahandthewhale.com to listen to the second song “Wild Thing”. Have some fun with the tape-deck they have set up for this song.

Noah And The Whale have used their own website as well as their Sound Cloud profile to release their new songs. With so many sites and platforms to share music on, would you prefer bands share their new music in one place (band website, myspace, facebook)? Or do you like the content that different sites offer, and don’t mind the jumping back and forth?

New Music: Wild Orchid Children

6 Dec

One of the many projects created by members of recently reunited Gatsby’s American Dream, Wild Orchid Children are exploring beyond their pasts, as well as their influences. After the initial hiatus of Gatsby’s, a new group emerged called Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground, drawing heavily on the sound of the likes of The Beatles. Kay Kay emerged with a “softer” sound, that focused on melody and orchestration. Created simultaneously as Kay Kay, Wild Orchid Children are a psychedelic, no-rules mass of sound acting as the evil twin in the birth of these two bands.
