Well, I am totally lost my words. Maggie Rogers definitely one of the best musician that I ever known. Last Tuesday, she shared a picture of her handwritten letter on Instagram and told us that she will released her brand new song, Split Stones. This song was released as a gift for all her fans who already make her ‘sang louder’ and ‘dance harder’. So, Split Stones might be her last single for a while and this is absolutely a great and wonderful single.

“‘Split Stones’ is a parting gift. This is me saying goodbye for a little while. Here’s to the end of the beginning and the start of everything else.” – Maggie Rogers-

For me, Split Stones already become our song of the month. This song is absolutely awesome and I can’t stop listening since it first released until now.  All I can say, this song is so ‘Maggie Rogers’. Still with R&B and electronic melodies, but this time she add the sound of glass, banjo play, and other nature and earth sound elements which makes everything so perfect to hear and dance. Plus, Maggie Rogers’ smooth and beautiful vocals absolutely fit with the melodies. What a perfect song. Absolutely perfect.

Somehow, Maggie Rogers never failed to amazed me since the first time she introduced us to her debut single Alaska until her awesome debut EP Now That The Light Is Fading. Everything she creates absolutely wonderful. All I can say is thank you so much Maggie Rogers for this absolutely wonderful gift for all of your fans around the world. Definitely can’t wait to hear new things from her.

Gordi Just Released Another Epic New Single, On My Side

Once again, Gordi amazed me and makes me lost my words every time she released her new music. Yes! Gordi is back with her epic new single, On My Side. On My Side is a second single from her upcoming debut album Reservoir which will released on August 25th 2017. This single was released and heard for the first time on Triple J radio on July 11th 2017 along with its cinematic music video.

On My Side is quite different from her other singles before. We usually heard more strings sound, piano tunes, and even electronic instruments in most of her songs. But this time, Gordi introduced us to her different music side. On My Side is melodically more vibrant, upbeat, and anthemic. I think this is the most playful songs I’ve ever heard from Gordi and it is so good and addicting. The sounds of guitar, percussion, and clapping hands makes this song has thick folk melodies than before. Definitely something irresistible and totally a great pleasure for your ears.

I can’t wait to hear her upcoming debut album in August. It will be one of the most anticipated album of the year. But for now, try to listen her epic brand new single and music video On My Side below. Don’t forget to share your thoughts and opinion about this song by give a comment in our music blog.

Take a Listen to “Million”, the New Addicting Single From Ider

I believe that Ider definitely will be something big since I heard their second single, Pulse. Glad that they still give me the same feeling with their latest single, Million. Their 4th single wraps in a slow down flowing tunes and rely on the harmony of the way they sing the song. I like how both of them take part in singing the song. The sparse piano chords not only get my attention in anticipating to where that this song will go but also help the chorus surprising me. And the way they bring back the slow tempo piano to end the song is a clever way in making me, and I believe other listeners, press the play button once again.

Now, if you haven’t heard their new single, kindly press the play button bellow and share with us what you thought about Million 🙂

“Big Mess” the New Album From Grouplove

What an exciting day! Two of my favorite bands just release their new album today; Bastille with their second LP, Wild World, and Grouplove with their 3rd album, Big Mess. Have you guys heard it? Before releasing the full album, the band released 4 singles, which were Welcome To Your Life, Do You Love Someone, Traumatized, and Enlighten Me. Big Mess itself consists of 11 songs that will take your mood to a fun roller coaster journey.

Grouplove-Big-Mess.jpg

I always love Grouplove for their full energy music and the harmony of the duet vocal from Hannah Hooper and Christian Zucconi. So, when I heard Welcome To Your Life and Do You Love Someone, I got impatient waiting for the album to be release. And Grouplove don’t disappointed me. They put the up beat and sing along song, Welcome To Your Life follow by Do You Love Someone, as the opening, which I believe will grab listener attention. Standing In The Sun maybe sounds a bit so so, but Enlighten Me will restore your attention. This slightly dark mood, slow down tempo song, will give you chance to chill for a moment before continuing dancing and sing along with them in Good Morning.

Once again, they reducing the tension with another slow tempo song, Spinning, before twisting the mood into a rock music through Cannonball, Traumatized, and Heart of Mine. What makes the rock songs interesting is how Hooper’s voice could smoothing the beat and get along with Zucconi’s scream. On the next song, Don’t Stop Making it Happen, Grouplove conjure the ground where you are standing into the dance floor and you’ll dance along with them. Without realize, you almost reach the end of the journey. So, they help you cooling down by putting a slightly slow down tempo song, Hollywood. This song is like a closing of the big mess yet fun time you’ve been through.

Now, do you want to experience the roller coaster mood journey that I’ve been trying to explain to you? Simply press the play button below and enjoy the Big Mess that Grouplove prepare for you 🙂

bastille-wild-world-new-album

For some of Bastille’s fans maybe they already received a warning that the band would like to do lots of exploration and experiment in this album. They did. You’ll find the heavy guitar that Dan once told fans, like in The Currents and Blame. Through Sent Them Off!, Oil On Water and Shame, we can deduce that trumpet sure become Bastille’s new buddy. You can also find a trace of their love toward movie in some of their intro, like in the Sent Them Off!. Even the way Dan presents the songs are also has a touch of exploration, like in the An Act of Kindness and Way Beyond. Also, almost all songs has a part of monologue like the one in a documentation or old movie.

The album may explore lots of new tunes, but you’ll still be able to recognize Bastillle’s signature, like the strings in Glory, the haunting backing vocals, the deep and thoughtful lyrics, and of course Dan’s voice. Worry not, most of the songs in Wild World still suit perfectly as our festival anthem. It kind a hard not to jump or dancing along with Bastille’s up beat song. In case you haven’t pre order the album, I suggest you to buy the complete version because I bet you don’t want to miss the studio version of Campus. Oh yes, Campus is one of my favorite in this album, together with Good GriefAn Act of KindnessWarmthWay BeyondOil on Water, and Shame. Meanwhile, here take a listen to the new album of Bastille, Wild World, and share with us your thought of the album 🙂

Bastille Revealed the 3rd Single, Send Them Off!

Count down to 8 days before the official Album release date, Bastille just revealed their next single, called Send Them Off! The song begins with a man talking like in an ancient movie or documentation, quite similar to the others songs before, Good Grief and Fake It. Then trumpet melodies greet you, remind you of a hero theme song back when you are a kid. After the intro, you finally hear how Dan sings the lyrics that he gave you a glimpse via his Instagram account.

Compare to the last single, Fake ItSend Them Off! has an easier melody to be stuck in your mind. It is an easy to singalong kind a song. Have you heard it? If you haven’t, kindly press the play button below.

I’m beginning to think that I’m a whining fan but… I still think that there’s something hanging in the air while listening to the new single from Bastille, Send Them Off! I still feel the song like almost finish, almost as good as any Bastille’s first album, and still think Bastille could make it better than the version they had released.

Still, I’m excited to hear the whole songs in the new album, which will be out on September 9th. Let’s see how Bastille surprise their fan!

The heroic email was a newsletter informed me that, there is a Wrong Crowd acoustic album, the East 1st Street Piano Tapes. Then, why do I call it a treat? Because a) Tom performed all the songs in the Wrong Crowd album just accompanied by piano, b) you know what to expect, right? it means you can be focus on hearing Tom’s soulful voice clearly and feel the emotion; a full band album is like seeing a colourful photograph–you see the beauty, while an acoustic album is like seeing a black and white photograph–you see the emotion, c) the quality of this acoustic album is a five stars, it makes you feel like Tom sings in front of you, it’s like you are attending an intimate gig. So, in case you’ve been wondering how does it feel like to wake up in the Sunday morning because someone is playing piano and sing casually-like the way he hum in the intro of Silhouette–in the next room, I guess this album can help you picture it.

On the other note, this acoustic album enhancing Tom as a singer and piano player you need to listen. Here, hear the whole Wrong Crowd album performed acoustically!
