Song Pick of the Day




SONG PICK: Hunter As A Horse – Fallen Leaves

“Fallen Leaves” is a sad song about a rapidly cooling relationship. “Live is cruel and complicated” and yes, in such situations it may look exactly like this. Singer/guitarist Mia van Wyk speak-sings much of the song, which generates a calm reflective mood, while Paul Gala’s synths soar like the emotions[…]

SONG PICK: Lost Woods – Vodka Ocean

“Vodka Ocean”, is the up-tempo, superbly catchy single for Lost Woods’ upcoming EP. The song deals with the singer’s regret of having gotten really drunk during a music festival, and subsequently having thrown up over his girlfriend’s and his stuff in their tent. While this doesn’t paint too rosy a picture, the song is way[…]

SONG PICK: Phoria – Everything Beta

Today’s Song Pick comes from the Brighton, UK five-piece Phoria. “Everything Beta” layers dense electronic soundscapes with Trewin Howard’s vocals floating above. It is difficult to escape the allure of this track: it engulfs you like a stream of warm water. Their debut album “Volition” is announced for June 3.

SONG PICK: Leitbur – I Need You

There is plenty of promise with a touch of longing right from the start of “I Need You”, a beautifully infectious  synthpop gem by LA duo Leitbur .”I Need You” is also the first single to their upcoming album “Antique Travelers” to drop on May 6th. “You’re the best person I know, I need you[…]

SONG PICK: r00ms – Bittersweet

Surly there is no lack of girl/boy duos from L.A.: we had quite a number of them as Song Picks of the Day lately. On the other hand it seems to be natural to do music together with your loved one. In case of r00ms, we don’t really know if[…]

SONG PICK: Chaika – The Quietness

Urgent, menacing undertones, creating a chilling dark vibe. Driving beats, staccato vocals, spitting out word for word, until the relentlessly pushing forward beats slow down half way through, taking a break in their vitality, the piercing guitar melody almost coming to a complete halt, lingering along, prolonging the exhaustion and eventually… fade out. Leeds four-piece Chaika released with[…]

SONG PICK: Maria Usbeck – Moai Y Yo

Up for something beautiful? Listen to “Moai Y Yo” from multi-cultural artist Maria Usbeck. The song floats past you like a creek in glistening sunshine. This effect comes from a skillful production mixing electronic and acoustic elements as well as Maria’s warm vocals. Her album “Amparo” is scheduled for a[…]

SONG PICK: Exes – Twentythousand

In this Song Pick of the Day, Exes singer Allie McDonald finds herself in pickle: how to escape an intense relationship that seems broken beyond repair? There is a lot of glass to be heard in the track, which emphasizes the fragile state of mind of its protagonist. “Twentythousand” is[…]

SONG PICK: Samuel Ford – This Is A Waltz

The title of today’s Song Pick holds the promise of something alluring and unique: “This Is A Waltz” is exactly that – a slowly intensifying track composed in 3/4 time yet there’s nothing quaint or dull about it. “This Is A Waltz” by singer/songwriter Samuel Ford is exciting as it can be with its beautiful waltz structure and[…]

SONG PICK: Ramsey – Pay

L.A. producer and singer Ramsey sings about the escape from a bad relationship in her latest single “Pay”, so bad that the man in question ends up behind bars. There is a lot of menace in the production and her vocals are full of the emotions of a woman whose[…]
