Missy Higgins has granted us the pleasure of a new album containing her beautiful vocals after 5 years of leaving her piano behind. Her new album, realeased this year, "The Ol Razzle Dazzle", is a definite hit and long awaited gift of music. One single off of this hit of an album is called, "Everyone's Waiting". We were waiting Missy and we couldn't be more pleased! Expect to hear heartfelt lyrics and a voice full of emotion in this album as Missy returns to what she does best: music!
You can check this song out and a few other new songs as well as some of her older songs (but still all goodies) here. Let us know what you think of Missy Higgins return to the spotlight!
Is Delicate Steve really "My Bloody Valentine, minus the guitars?" Or "a hydro-electric Mothra rising from the ashes of an African village burned to the ground by post-rock minotaurs?" Well, no, but that's how pop-culture writer Chuck Klosterman depicted them in their official bio. In reality, Delicate Steve is a New Jersey 5-piece instrumental band fronted by Steve Marion. Their mix of live and electronic beats and funky guitar makes them stand out both in the world of droning post-rock music and upbeat electronica. "Afria Talks To You" is the first single off their new album Positive Force out July 10. It features some groovy slide guitar backed by a steady, driving beat. It's a funky jam and something a bit different. Check it out for yourself here.
River City Extension is a band so full of sound. The eight piece ensemble has a fun, folky, jump up and down sound that features guitars, drums, trumpets, cellos, keyboards, banjos and so much more. "Point of Surrender", off their most recent album Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Your Anger, doesn't stray from this tradition, starting slow with simple piano and drums and building to a full on Guns & Roses style guitar solo. You can't have a bad time listening to this band. Check it out here!

St. Patrick's Day is upon us! Time to wear green, drink beer with green food coloring and talk in bad Irish accents.

When someone says to you "Sappy 70's music," I bet you automatically think of England Dan and John Ford Coley.
They had a lot of "soft rock" hits during that decade. We put ED and JFC in the same category as Seals and Crofts, Bread, and later--Air...
