13 Best Music Review Sites To Submit To (Or Read!)

Thousands of musicians play in bars each night just waiting to be discovered by the right person.

With so many musicians in that in-between stage — producing quality music but not quite making […]

Remington Super 60 Entice Us Down ‘The Highway Again’

Remington Super 60 is no stranger to the music scene. The band has been making music since 1998 but has experienced enough internal change to keep up with the ebb and flow of the industry. Their newest single “The Highway Again” reveals their ability to stay relevant while maintaining an old-school charm.  The lyrics […]

Trentemøller goes out on a limb “In The Garden”

Danish composer and producer Trentemøller combines his electro-pop genius with the indie-pop vocals of Lina Tullgren to create a dreamy electro-pop masterpiece. The first few bars of “In The Garden” make the listener think they are about to dive into an upbeat bop. But they will soon find that Trentemøller waxes reflective once again.  […]

Bitter Calm Warns You: “Don’t Look Down”

Diving Into Minru’s “Lakes”

Swedish indie artist Minru begins her single “Lakes” with a subtle bass line, leaving us wondering where the song might go from here. Initially, the song creates a sultry atmosphere, but soon develops into a dreamy folk pop number. As the song progresses, the instrumentation retains its minimalist approach while still accomplishing a full sound. […]

ELKI’s “Nightmare” is a Dream Come True

Australian indie artist ELKI cuts right to the chase in her new single “Nightmare.” We usually get a musical introduction from artists before they dive into the lyrics. Not so with ELKI. Immediately ELKI begins to tell a story in which insecurity and hope collide to the tune of a soft beach-pop number. The combination […]

An Emotional Take on Foxpaw’s “D Minor”

Foxpaw is a self-proclaimed “folk emo solo project.” If you’re looking for a second opinion, I agree with the diagnosis. You easily gather that from their singles, but their Spotify description fits perfectly too. Now I’ve never been one for the emo scene — disappointing, I know. But no matter your familiarity with the genre, […]

Living Vicariously through littleDEATH’s “Losemyhead”

littleDEATH surprised me. I guess you can’t completely judge a book by its cover or a band by its name. Right away I thought, “This is not my genre.” I joke about being punk. I am not. At all. I love a good pop-punk number riddled with teen-angst. But if you took one look at […]
