Rare Monk – Death By Proxy

Rare Monk are a melting pot of indie rock. Combining all different types of rock including, but not limited to soul, garage, indie, folk, and electronic. Like a broken down, raw version of Atlas Genius, the Portland-based five-piece have only been in the scene for a couple years. Often getting into fits of experimental, psychedelic rage, Rare Monk could be described as a mix between Surfer Blood and The Killers. Check out the song “Death By Proxy” off their 2013 album Sleep/Attack below. Read More…

Electric President – Ten Thousand Lines

Ben Cooper has been making music under many names, but when Alex Kane joins in to form Electric President, things are taken to a whole new level. A perfect mix of electronic and indie, the two Floridians can span the entire range of human emotion in the limits of one song. At times beautiful, at times creepy, and at time both, Electric President and subsequent albums contain very thoughtful, well-structured songs that can have a profound effect on the music experience. If you’re digging this, be sure to look up some of Ben Cooper’s other projects Radical Face, Iron Orchestra, Helicopter Project, and Mother’s Basement.

Listen to “Ten Thousand Lines” off their 2006 self-titled, debut album below. Read More…

Cotton Jones – Up A Tree (Went This Heart I Have)

Fans of Page France have been wondering for years what happened to the band after suddenly quitting with very little warning. Well your search is over. Cotton Jones (formerly known as The Cotton Jones Basket Ride) have been making music since 2008 and have advanced from releasing EPs off of Ann Arbor-based Quite Scientific Records to currently being signed to Suicide Squeeze. Blending psychedelic folk with indie rock (and some clear baroque influences for you classical fans out there), Cotton Jones is the epitome of hippie music. Like The Mamas and The Papas after a Saturday morning wake and bake, they make some of the most relaxed and peaceful music out there. Check out “Up A Tree (Went This Heart I Have)” off their 2009 Suicide Squeeze debut Paranoid Cocoon below.
