Fresh Music Monday: Gorillaz-Momentz

Like everyone else, I listened to Gorillaz highly anticipated album Humanz this past weekend. Although there was definitely some hits and misses, there was one single that stood out the most, “Momentz(featuring De La Soul).” The first time I listened to it, it just screams Gorillaz. Its so odd and different. It reminds me so much of, “Feel Good Inc.” Its a single that people will absolutely go crazy for, with immensely fun lyrics and over the top production.

Single Review: The Japanese House- ‘Saw You In A Dream’

Up and coming indie pop act, The Japanese House, have delivered a unique yet simple single, that does not rely on over the top productions. For those unfamilar with  The Japanese House, the act consisting of solo artist Amber Bain and in total has released three EPs; Pools to Bathe InClean, and Swim Against the Tide. If your a fan of Lana Del Rey, I highly reccomend you listen to The Japanese House. Bain has a mellow soft spoken voice that is very reminiscent to Del Rey. The only difference is that Bain depends more on pop-synth. Her breathy vocals mesh perfectly with the low tempo melody of synth music.
