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 In, Clean, 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.
Circa Waves have officially released their most touching music video yet. Shot in their hometown in Liverpool, the video for ‘Love’s Run Out’ features tender moments between singer Kieran and his cat, and behind the scenes footage of the band. The single is off their newest album, Different Creatures which is out now. Check it out:
The fun rumbuctious style, was the first thing that caught my attention. “Turn It Up” by The Wrecks is catchy mix of nostalgia and youthfulness. The single’s chaotic style–filled with memorable guitar riffs and drum beats– is the perfect mix of indie rock and punk. The witty/catchy lyrics are unique and one of kind. The band ability to demonstrate their youthful through the fast paced single, definitely makes ‘Turn It Up’ a must listen.
The Wrecks hail from Los Angeles, Ca. The group consists of Nick Anderson (vocals/guitar), Nick Schmidt (guitar), Harrison Nussbaum (guitar), Aaron Kelley (bass), and Billy Nally (drums).
The date has been set. Gorillaz are releasing their new album Humanz on April 28.

Instead of celebrating the start of spring, Weezer is bring summer early with their new single “Feels Like Summer.” The single’s eccentric pop and synth production is an experimental delight. Fans might not like how it strays away from Weezer’s signature indie rock sound, but I think it’s quite enjoyable. Its catchy and still has those funky Weezer lyrics.
The single is assumed to be the lead single of The Black Album. The follow up album to last years, White Album. Lead singer, Rivers Cuomo has previously stated that the album would be more gritty, tackling “more mature topics” and be “less summer day and more winter night.” But with the realize of this single, its feels like that might not be 100% true.
It’s been a huge week for Lana Del Rey. Two days after the leak and release of her new single “Love,” she has released a music video to accompany the song.
Directed by Rich Lee, the vintage video features enchanting Del Rey singing to a captivated audience. As the video progresses, the scenery suddenly shifts to feature stunning outer-space landscapes, as young lovers journey around the galaxy.
“Love” is the first single from Del Rey’s untitled fifth studio album, which fans can expect later this year. Check it out
Prisoner by Ryan Adams
Skin Companion EP II by Flume
In a sea of infinite amount of music being upload everyday, I still end up feeling like I have nothing left to listen. Time and time again, I crave music that makes me feel alive and soothes my soul. Mother Mother’s newest album No Culture has been the closest answer to my prayers. The album cover, a creepy baby in black ink, makes their music seem dark and deceiving, but its exactly what I’ve been craving. Its the perfect mix of rock, alternative and pop. Its been a while I’ve loved an album from beginning to end. The albums experimentations with sounds and lyrics is different, in a good type of way.
Mother Mother is a Canadian indie rock band based in Vancouver, British Columbia. The band consists of Ryan Guldemond on guitar and vocals, Molly Guldemond on vocals and keyboard, Jasmin Parkin on keyboard and vocals, and Ali Siadat on drums. The album opens up with the fiery single “Free.” The screeching chorus paired with the intense emotional guitar and drum melodies, is a signal of what to expect from the LP. The whole album is intensely fun to listen to with important messages of friendship and the world around us.
