The Republic of Wolves – Oarsman

Long Island’s The Republic of Wolves seem to be one of those bands that gets a lot of media buzz, but just can’t seem to garner the attention of fans. With a heavy, downtrodden rock sound, these guys often get compared to Devil and God-era Brand New, and with good reason. The two bands may sound like brothers separated at birth, but The Republic of Wolves brings with them a sense of grace that Brand New seems to lack (no offense hardcore fans). With only two EPs and one full-length, The Republic of Wolves are sure to be doing great things in music. Check out “Oarsman” off their debut LP Varuna below. Read More…

Efterklang – I Was Playing Drums

Copenhagen down-tempo indie rock band Efterklang takes their name from the Danish word meaning”reverberation” or “remembrance;” a word that is all too fitting for the band. Bass-heavy, piano-driven tunes provide the perfect platform for deep contemplation about life, love, or what you’re going to eat for dinner. Though they’re a three member band, eight members are added for their live show, creating a spectacular display of music and movement that is sure to stick with anyone who catches a glimpse. Check out the music video for “I Was Playing Drums” off of their 2009 release Magic Chairs below. Read More…

Jenny Lewis – The Next Messiah

Straight out of California, Jenny Lewis was destined for greatness. Starting as a child actress, she was able to snag roles in The Wizard, Pleasantville, and Uncle Tom’s Cabin to name a few. Turning her focus towards music, she was able to form the ever-popular Rilo Kiley and hit it big with the band until splitting in 2011. Jenny Lewis wasn’t done though, releasing several solo albums and starting a project with boyfriend John Vanderslice appropriately titled Jenny and Johnny. The standout song of any of these projects is this nearly nine minute, three-part romp about a girl and her father. As groovy as it is long, the jazzy flow of the song makes it feel a lot shorter. Check out the track off Acid Tongue below. Read More…
