The Kid and I tackled the sufferance in grief with their Indie Garage Rock hit “White Feather”

The Kid and I’s latest Indie Garage Rock track, “White Feather”, is a tender extension of compassion orchestrated to reach out to anyone who knows how hard the grief hits while validating the struggles of anyone coming of age and attempting not to slip through the cracks.

Their exuberantly raucous Garage sound which is laden with scuzzy hooks amps up the energy while the imploringly empathetic vocals offer a grabbable olive branch of connection. I can imagine it will be a fair while befor the infectiously charismatic chorus stops reverberating around my mind, but the earworm to the epic infusion of Pop Punk, Alt Rock and indie will always be welcome.

You can check out White Feather which dropped on November 13th via SoundCloud.

Take a trip with The Jay Hill Band’s filthy feel-good Rock hit “Goin to California”

Take a trip with The Jay Hill Band’s sleazy new feat of Rock “Goin’ to California” which drips with Axl Rose-style cool and stamped the trailblazer’s signature sound on the airwaves with maximum impact.

Setting The Jay Hill Band leagues apart from any other up and coming artist in their genre is the energetic attitude and their distinctive brand of punchy feel-good-aural-filth. If you could imagine what Buckcherry’s tracks would sound like if they poured a little soul into the mix, you’ll get a good impression of what is waiting for you when you hit play.

You can check out the official video to Goin’ to California via YouTube.

JRtheBand has unleashed a monstrous Alt-Rock earworm with “Stray Dog”

Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist JRtheBand dropped the video to their single Stray Dog on July 30th. If you’ve forgotten how it feels to experience a fresh new take on Alt-Rock which speaks to your soul, hit play.

Starting off with a ring of discordant distortion, the soundscape quickly shifts into a melodically transfixing feat of American Rock with slight nuances of the Alt 90s sound. Reminiscences in the vocals to Kurt Cobain’s in Plateau was definitely there, but the bluesy country twang on the slightly noisy grungy vibe gave the evolution of Alt-Rock a brand-new trajectory. The artist’s endearing vibe which could be comparable to Matthew Caws (Nada Surf) was the icing on the aural cake.

Florida’s Most Promising Alt Rock Act GREYE Have Dropped the Colossal Track “So Far So Good”

Through dominating vocals atop of sultry Rock rhythms, Floridian Alt-Rock artist GREYE created an unforgettable release with their latest single “So Far So Good” which is the second track to be released from their upcoming album of the same title.

With the first single release grabbing the #1 spot on the World Indie Chart, it’s easy to expect big things for GREYE. Possibly even bigger than the anthemic sound they alchemically cooked up in So Far So Good.

The vocals find the perfect balance between ferocity and harmony, any fans of Joan Jett and later formed 90s Riot Grrrl artists will undoubtedly be bowled over by this colossal single.

With a powerhouse of instrumentalists laying down soaring riffs and laying the Wah on thick, So Far So Good has all the accessibility of Classic Rock, but underestimating GREYE’s distinctive talent would be a dangerous move.

https://wildsundays.bandcamp.com/releases

Exception” is the debut single from the Boston, Massachusetts-based Indie Pop Rock newcomer Wild Sundays. Prepare for a rhythmically slick soul-soothing Indie earworm before hitting play.

The anthemic energy of Exception is nicely paired with the intimately candid lyrics and vocals which invite you to aurally swim in the depths of the vocalist’s authentic and sincere expression.

With most Indie tracks, you can immediately guess who the artist is trying to assimilate. But Wild Sundays pull from a variety of sub-genres to deliver an overwhelmingly contemporary resounding sound which will appease Rock fans of all inclinations.

Whether you love to listen to Bon Jovi, Arctic Monkeys, Foo Fighters, or Manic Street Preachers, you’re sure to appreciate Exception.
