Journeyman Positronic synths in the speakers with pop song ”When You Fall Down”

Positronic is the creation of Michael L. McDannold. Michael is from the Inland Empire in Southern California and has been making catchy synth-pop music since 1988. His first band was formed in 1988 with some friends from High School called Foundation. His next band was also with some friends from High School and was called Optic Rain. Shortly after Optic Rain broke up however, Michael moved to Michigan to marry the love of his life. After being in one more band, Michael decided to rather venture out on his own and came up with the name, Positronic because his music has a positive message and he loves electronic. Now back in his home of California, this is an artist who is ready to push his music to all corners of the world.

When You Fall Down” is a positive song with a strong message of help during these dark times. He is there for the love of his life and wants here to know that he is there for her always. This indie-pop song is a welcome addition to Positronic’s collection.

Uncle Ben’s Children are here with instrumental track ”Ice Cream & Heroin”

This is the most different songs of 2020. There is no doubt about that at all. This is free jazz, filled with smokey sax and upstart beats. This song sums up year perfectly. You don’t quite know what to expect and everything is so unique. ”Ice Cream & Heroin” is the new song from the young band and it’s an interestingly named track.

Uncle Ben’s Children are based outta Lake Elsinore in Riverside County, California. The band like to just go for it and you can tell that they don’t take themselves too seriously. This is a 3 piece and you can tell that they are quite tight as their music is so well connected and produced. With no vocals they have to put in a bit extra and manage to get the job done with awesome results. This is a niche band that have a flavor for everyone.

California indie rock duo The Mulroys stimulate sadness with excellent ”I Don’t Want To Do This”

With electrically shocked memories of previous relationships that ended like a beautiful summer. You sit back and remember the good times to see if they out way the bad elements. Like a skater falling off their board, you can’t stay on the ramp all the time. Sometimes, you know that you can’t do this for a minute further.

Formally known as Rollers, Singer-songwriter Erik Mullin and guitarist-songwriter TJ Royer are a formidable duo as The Mulroys and this new track is taken off 2020’s first full length album called Splitsville. Recorded at Tiny Telephone Studios in San Francisco and Oakland, this is a band to turn up loud. They wanted something extra so grabbed good friend and veteran rocker Mark Maiggard from Louis XIV on drums and Michigan’s own Chris Diener as bassist for the recording. You can hear the extra grand touch on ”I Don’t Want To Do This”.

The Mulroys exude confidence and have a blues tingled indie rock style that is a pleasure to listen to. On their new single ”I Don’t Want To Do This” the duo are on top form. The vocals are smooth and the guitar background creates a warm feeling despite the sad topic. This is older Americana Kings Of Leon vibes soaked with some warm Californian sunshine.

Head to Bandcamp for this terrific single from the US band with lots to offer.

California R&B singer Morgan Crite brings us that special feeling with ”Look of Love”

Morgan Crite has a special voice and sings with such love and affection. ”Look of Love” is all about knowing that your special crush is into you too. You just know and feel it inside your body and bones. That is a stunning feeling and one that you cherish and wish could last forever.

Morgan is from Bakersfield, California and is making his mark in the music scene. With just three singles out he is a new name in the game but shows a lot of potential. His voice is pure and he takes us into his picture of love and seems to have that butterfly feeling inside his stomach. He is clearly taken aback and this is a really good R&B effort from the young singer.

Look of Love” will be a popular R&B song that is played when the lights are lit dimly and let’s hope that he creates more songs like this. I anticipate him joining forces with a female singer soon on a song as this will be an intriguing dynamic. Morgan Crite is a name to watching in the US music scene for 2020 and beyond.

Follow Morgan via Spotify and hear this song and more from this US singer-songwriter.

San Fernando Valley’s Chatrooms might just be my new favorite band. They sparkle in unimaginable ways with their dazzlingly hot ”Palm Reader” single. This has all the right vibes from start to finish and 2020 is blessed with one of the best songs of the year.
