Synthly Awesome: Jasia / Inverbatim

So, it’s spring in Amsterdam and that means EVERYTHING IS AMAZING! Because when 10646699_353420544818072_4046789265927652851_nthe sunshine hits this city, suddenly the Dutch crawl out of their typically walled-up phase and start smiling and dancing around the streets in total joy and everything is immediately awesome in this little village.
I just stumbled on Jasia today and this song is accompanying the breeze blowing off the canal, through the tree beside my window and into my office. So, overall, today is winning. Even for a Monday.
Jasia is classically trained in vocals, violins and guitars, which sounds damn sexy. Couple that with him being born in Jamaica, raised in the US and now living in Australia and we get a young artist who has not just an interesting story but also a rad sound. Nice one, Jasia!
Jasia is here.

New on the radar: Emilie Nicolas / Pstereo

So, maybe she put this track out a year ago, but some things just don’t lose their sparkle 1897932_541265312656227_1627559304_nover a year. Emilie Nicolas is yet another thing coming out of Norway that rules. Listen to her voice – there is nothing wrong with this song. I’m gobbling up everything of hers that I can find online and so far, I’m in love. She sounds so right now and her vocals are fierce, no hint of effort. Nice work, Emilie. Keep putting out the goods, we’re listening.

Indie Submission: Nolan Kennedy / Devil Creeps

From the indie submission bucket, I present Nolan Kennedy. NYC inhabitant, Nolan is a solid singer songwriter worth a listen. I clicked on this video in Nolan’s super great email (I tell you, there’s an art to writing a cold email pitch to music supervisors/bloggers…he nailed it) and was happily surprised by his music. The guy has a knack for songwriting and singing, that’s clear.
I scrolled through his Spotify music and I like what I heard. Nice work, Nolan Kennedy. I wish you luck!
Peep this video, friends.

SXSW Artist: Jack Garratt / The Love You’re Given

I’m trying to get through the lists of artists attending SXSW and I’m pretty sure it’s near to1452302_10152899693504631_5526026073946725233_n impossible. Help a sister out!
Alright, so digging through this morning, I found out that Jack Garrett will be out of London and playing in Austin for the conference. I’ll find myself there, for sure. Because I’m digging him and I suspect there’ll be some good head-nodding-while-drinking situation happening here. He’s on Facebook.

Killing it! AWOLNATION / Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)

Of course you know AWOLNATION. Errrrybody does after Sail became such a beast of a 10945599_10152811029108692_3834805391851462128_nradio song. At any rate, I was sort of turned off by hearing more because, you know, once something becomes too available and too overplayed it turns me off. But, I pressed play on this sucker and it’s a jam for sure. For sure. I dig it. I can hardly wait for the radio to kill it to death by overplaying it (RIP song).
