2014 Predictions

I don’t know why I just said ‘predictions’. I’m not a psychic. I just hate those ‘Artists To Watch” lists.

Anyway, here are some of my top choices for artists that I think will blow up (even more) in 2014, and music I’m excited for.

Find me on Facebook or in the comments section to tell me who is on the top of your ‘predictions’ list. Continue reading


Fun Tunes For Your Friday

Happy Friday everyone! Here’s a short but long overdue post. 🙂

Minneapolis rapper Ecid dropped a new EP on Monday titled Euphoria (Vol. 2). The album picks up where the previous Vol. 1 left off but also leaves you anticipating his upcoming full-length. My personal favorite tune is “You’re Really Something”, but that might have something to do with Ceschi’s feature. Ecid’s first single from the EP, “G R U N G E H O T E L”, is the banger track – even as I was listening to it through headphones I felt like the walls around me were shaking. Check out a video for the single below or head to Bandcamp to download the album for free (you can also pay money for physical merch or get the deluxe version on iTunes).

But what is even better is that the whole channel is this group of amazing musicians, Postmodern Jukebox, covering current Top 40 songs in all different time-period styles including 40s, 50s and even Ragtime.

Fuck Yeah Females : Spotlight on Dessa

dessaIt’s no secret that I adore Dessa. Not in a creepy way, but a high school “YOU GET ME!” kind of way. I’ve been drawn to her music since I first heard of Doomtree years ago, and that connection was only solidified with her newest album, Parts of Speech.

A lot of her songs come off as a sort of spoken word piece, which is understandable since she’s such an incredible writer and poet. Her words flow so easily and with meaning – you can hear the happiness, the strength, and the sadness in her voice. Every live performance is like telling her story for the very first time – the good, the bad, and the love lost.
