Stream Best Coast – Crazy For You

It’s yet another dreamy lo-fi beach / surf – pop act, but this one in particular shines in a crowded room.  Their music is a mix of california breezes, the beach boys and a near gospel like vocal styling.  This album is a definite recommendation.

These United States – Everything Touches Everything

Will it Ever The Secret Door Night And The Revolution I’m not sure how these guys slipped through the cracks with this album but Everything Touches Everything is one superb album.  These United States tackle that americana folk style that drips with pedal steel strings and great vocals.

‘The Happy Loss’ by sonofthesunmusic As suggested from Ryan of rslblog.com I sat down to check out Son of the Sun and found a full streaming version of their brand new album The Happy Loss.  This album has the potential to make Son of the Sun a break out band.  This one is definitely worth [...]

The Pass – Treatment of the Sun

Pop Synth band The Pass, out of Kentucky, are setting up a release to their upcoming album Burst with this video.  Premiered on Pretty Much Amazing the song ‘Treatment of the Sun’ kind of sounds like Empire of the Sun.  It’s highly catchy, danceable, and the video is a lot of fun. The Pass – [...]
