New York’s A Go Go by SLAVE to the SQUAREwave

Standard

bchangefrontsmall[1]A disco-like beat with a nice guitar-edge and theatrical vocals surprisingly work well in this song. This is from SLAVE to the SQUAREwave‘s  sixth album, Big Change.

With over 8 albums released this Toronto band has stayed under the radar. They were introduced to me by my late friend, Don Berns (aka Doctor Trance) and I’m glad he did. They have a very distinct sound and they definitely need more exposure.

I could only find a live version of this song that I could share. This is from the CBC’s Radio On The Go.

Where The Kids Are by Blondfire

Standard

This lame psychedelic video is nothing special, unless you like seeing people bathe in food.

Blondfire fill the dance floor with this ditty. This is off their third EP, Where The Kids Are.

This LA brother and sister duo have released a few EPS and 2 albums, the most recent, Young Heart in 2014. They have an indie pop vibe, and many of their songs are varied from each other. Which means you won’t get bored of them. If you don’t like one song, you’ll like another or, you’ll like most of them.

Fire Ant by Alex Winston

Standard

Odd animated video.

Cute little child-like ditty from Alex Winston. This is off the her EP, Velvet Elvis.

This American indie pop singer has released only one album, and a few EPs. She sounds like a cross between Amy Winehouse and Regina Spektor.  Her music is hard to find, but definitely worth listening to. Here’s hoping she makes the leap to mainstream radio without compromising on her style.

Grown Up by Danny Brown

Standard

A great video with a younger version of Danny Brown rapping and doing kid things. My favourite moment in the video is when he crosses the street holding his mom’s hand.

This indie Detroit rapper has the perfect music and rap style for this particular song. It has turned me back onto rap, but it stands miles away from the rest of his music, transcending the rap genre. This is a non-album single.

Danny Brown has released 3 albums and 3 EPs. You can also download a lot of his Mixtapes gratis from his website. Here’s hoping for more songs like this from him. If you’re not into rap, you probably won’t like any of his other music.
