Song Pick of the Day




Synth Lovers Cafe

Synth Lovers Cafe – On my Own (ft. Emily Zuzik)

Synth Lovers Cafe is actually a playlist of synth-based music which is not the same as electronic music. It is also the moniker of a London-based producer who released a handful of songs this year. If this sounds all very geeky, add singer/songwriter Emily Zuzik of Woves and her soulful[…]

Eliza Edens – I Needed You [Video]

Born and raised in rural Massachusetts and currently living in Brooklyn, NY⁠ —via Colorado and then Philadelphia— Eliza Edens delights with the delicate and enthralling “I Needed You.” The single is the latest offering from Eliza’s upcoming sophomore album, We’ll Become the Flowers, out October 14th. On her album, Eliza[…]

Lexi Mariah

Lexi Mariah – Queen of Broken Hearts

Lexi Mariah is not the “Queen of Broken Hearts” – she just does not want to be blamed for everything that goes wrong in her relationship. The Connecticut-based singer/songwriter packs her latest song with playful card game metaphors, and while the problems are real, she shows that humor can be[…]

Kimi Stär – Bodies

Electronic alt-pop duo Kimi Stär (pronounced Kee-mee Star) consists of indie house producer/vocalist ZOSIA and pop singer/songwriter Kaitlyn Kaerhart. The two artists had originally met in Los Angeles, CA, and soon thereafter moved both to Brooklyn, NY, where they decided to form a band. Their first single was “Wildfire,” followed[…]

Asha Gold – Up To Me

At first, “Up To Me” may sound like an obsessive relationship. But the airy, bouncy production and the repeated use of the far too familiar word “lockdown” hint that London-based singer/songwriter Asha Gold does not mean it that seriously. In fact, the song is not even about a specific person,[…]

Arny Margret – sniglar [Video]

The new single “sniglar” by Icelandic singer/songwriter Arny Margret is nothing short of utterly gorgeous. From its soothing vocal delivery to its mesmerizing and simply beautiful production. While ‘sníglar’ is Icelandic for ‘snail,” Arny Margret sings in English and clearly knows the language very well as her lyrics are powerful[…]

Abby Sage

Abby Sage – The Florist

“The Florist” is a metaphor for a person who dispenses happiness to others, which is something that L.A.-based singer/songwriter Abby Sage strives for in real life. But the song comes with a curious restraint in production and vocals that hints at a darker side in the life of a “florist,”[…]

JoJo Worthington – Win Butler

Canadian singer, songwriter, and producer JoJo Worthington isn’t afraid to tackle one of her biggest inspirations head-on. Who dares to call her new song “Win Butler?” Must be someone who’s not only out for short-lived buzz but someone who can back it up with substance. And oh, is there substance[…]

Sister Wives – Greater Place

“’Greater Place’ is our love song to joy,” said Sister Wives, the Sheffield, UK-based band of Donna Lee (vocals/keys/synths), Rose Love (vocals/bass), Liv Willars (vocals/guitar), Lisa O’Hara (vocals/drums). But don’t expect soaring chorales or jubilating string arrangements. The four women stay true to their roots in gritty rock and show[…]

Florence Arman – Stupid Heart

Aren’t we all tempted from time to time to think of our feelings as having a stupid heart? Falling in love with the wrong person but also believing in a person’s words and getting fooled, two just name two examples. I think it is easy to relate to “Stupid Heart,”[…]
