@BraveShores taking me higher.. I don’t care if I ever come down


Ok, I found some musical inspiration amidst a wild period of transition and uncertainty and have elected to return to the Orchard.

Toronto’s own electro-pop due, Brave Shores, unleashed an EP last October jam packed with edgy, hazy, summery anthems that launched into our faces an insanely energetic and infectiously fun song called “Never Come Down”.  The video, the lyrics and the soaring riffs make for two and a half minutes of full tilt, rock-out dance session.

“So sorry, as I’ve missed you.
Running with the crazy crowd
I’m climbing, going higher
I don’t care if I never come down
I don’t care if I never come down”

*NEW* @TheColourist – When I’m Away (..sing a song as you think of me)


Another one of my big finds from SXSW 2014 – The Colourist – just released a NEW track from their upcoming EP!! These guys took over The Webster here in NYC last Friday and delivered exactly what I needed in my life – a gloriously, infectiously synth-poppy rock show.

Ya dig?

“When I’m’ll be all I ever think about

When I come home.. you’ll be all I ever talk about”

#DeathCabforCutie – No Room in Frame “And we’ll both go on and be lonely with someone else”

2015-01-28 21.14.00Death Cab is continuing to define my 2015 with another dropped track that is simply magical. After managing to nab a pair of tickets for their last minute show at Music Hall of Williamsburg earlier this month.. I have been captivated by this new song they carefully laced into an otherwise classic hit-packed set. Below is the track, both recorded and live. I love this song. So. Much. The album drops March 31st.

The bassist described the new album: “The album’s called Kintsugi. It’s a Japanese style of art where they take fractured, broken ceramics and put them back together with very obvious, real gold. It’s making the repair of an object a visual part of its history. That resonated with us as a philosophy, and it connected to a lot of what we were going through, both professionally and personally.”

Death Cab for Cutie – No Room in Frame

“Was I in your way?
When the cameras turned to face you
No room in frame
For two”

Here’s the first time it was played live..   (note: I was at the second show they played it live in Brooklyn, NYC) :)))))

@PRIDESband – Higher Love “I know nothing will change..but I know the blood is still pumping in my veins”


My favorite band from SXSW 2014 unleashed a new epic synth-pop anthem earlier this month called “Higher Love” and holy flipmode it really digs to your core and makes their lyrics your own. Their passionate, heart-felt, synth-laced tracks are neatly embedded throughout my iPod playlist… they should be a staple in yours.

Prides – Higher Love

There’s another dawning,
A tremor where we stood,
They said I would never,
I said that I would.
That I would do something good,
That I would do something better,
That I would do something, something, something,
