New Music Finds in Rock, Alternative, Dance and Rap

by

With so much wonderful new music to choose from, it’s tough to stay current with what’s out there. Here are some of the stand out performers I’ve been drawn to lately that you may also enjoy.

Alternative: Tennis — a bit like Lana Del Ray took a trip back to the seventies.

Alternative: Drab Majesty think Bowie and The Cure revived. It’s about time!

Rap: Machine Gun Kelly — P.Diddy’s closet fave, raised on Eminem now surpassing his skills

Rock: Bad Rabbits — vocals of John Legend with the rock style of the Black Keys, but make no mistake, they defy both R & B and rock making their own whole new lovechild.

Alternative: Lorde — there’s no comparison and we all know who she is. Her latest, Melodrama debuted Friday, June 16. Just as good as she ever was.

The Best of the Best in Alternative Music This Month

by

For all you connoisseurs of alternative music, May and June have birthed some fantastic releases.

Here are a few of my top picks:

The Birthday Massacre’s Under Your Spell — is a bit of Phantogram and Muse but they have a style all their own. They got the title right, they’ll easily put you under their spell.

Matt and Sam’s Brother, My Brain Hurts A Lot — Nirvana-esque lyrics set to Mumford and Sons type music, their brains may hurt but my brain sure feels better when I listen to them.

Julia Holter’s, In the Same Room — With piano accompaniment that rivals Lady Gaga, Holter’s voice breaks into songs that seem to be written on the spot, but her sound does more than work for her, it keeps you craving more.

Land of Talk‘s After Youth — Reminiscent of the GoGo’s or the Cranberries.
