#NewMusicMonday: Lindstrøm & Todd Terje

It's Monday. Again. And you need to dance. Fortunately, with this song, that problem's solved. [You're welcome.] Today's selection is the delicious retro techno of Lindstrøm & Todd Terje from Norway, a tribute to all the places they want to go and the adventures they haven't had. Yet. (In case you've never heard of Lanzarote, the … Continue reading #NewMusicMonday: Lindstrøm & Todd Terje

#NewMusicMonday: Haim

I am a pop-lover at heart. I think that's why I fell in love with this girl-fronted band, and this song especially. Haim is a sister trio from LA who grew up playing small gigs with their parents, who played for a hobby. Together with their drummer, who happens to be a guy, they've  launched … Continue reading #NewMusicMonday: Haim

#NewMusicMonday: Laura Marling

I don't know what to do with Laura Marling. She is so deceptively deep. I say deceptive because look at her. She's angelic, the golden hair and giant blue eyes, staring off above you into another world. And she is only 23. She shouldn't have this kind of experience, the kind she crams into her … Continue reading #NewMusicMonday: Laura Marling

#NewMusicMonday: Pas Neos

After a short reprieve, I'm back with #NewMusicMonday. And I'm really excited to introduce this band to you. I discovered Pas Neos about two years ago. Bob Powers and Caleb Culver formed this brilliant duo, along with other musical accompaniment, and they blended synth and live instruments to make their own brand of music . … Continue reading #NewMusicMonday: Pas Neos

#NewMusicMonday: The Blackbird Revue

This week's new music feature is a long time coming. I've seen The Blackbird Revue play quite a few shows over the past five years, since they formed their current configuration of the now husband and wife duo, Jacob and Danielle Prestidge. Not all musicians can play a show that matches the pleasure and sound … Continue reading #NewMusicMonday: The Blackbird Revue

#NewMusicMonday: The Strypes

Had fun watching this week's featured band, The Strypes, rock out this weekend. Sure they live in Ireland. But the video, shot beautifully in black and white to match their 1960's sound, gives you the feeling you're right in the rock-infused chaos, jamming out in angsty black right alongside them. In someone's garage, perhaps. These … Continue reading #NewMusicMonday: The Strypes

#NewMusicMonday: Kate Simko

Meet American music school reject, Kate Simko, electronic music producer, composer and DJ. Fortunately for her, and the music world, London accepted her and her electronic music as legitimate, not some synthetic impostor. It might appear that Kate is some pretentious musical elitist who planned on moving to Europe anyway because it's cooler, but under the … Continue reading #NewMusicMonday: Kate Simko

#NewMusicMonday: Connor Pledger

I discovered this week's up-and-coming musician feature, Connor Pledger, after connecting with Philip Scheidt, a diversely talented bass player, last weekend. [Philip is a strikingly gifted musician in his own right, but profoundly humble as he serves the musicians he plays with. He really impressed me. Check out his musical contributions here. You will not be disappointed.] Connor … Continue reading #NewMusicMonday: Connor Pledger
