Kicking Sunrise - "Underneath"

Right Coast Music recording artists Kicking Sunrise are scheduled to release a new single this Friday, August 23rd entitled “Underneath” thru multiple streaming and downloadable platforms. And the advance listening I have heard is one of a song catchy and very radio ready.

The band has been together since 2013 and garnered some attention after posting a cover of Justin Timberlake’s song “Suit and Tie” to YouTube. Followed by debut single, “Here’s to the Sunrise” in 2015 which was then picked up for CBS3 Philly as their theme song.

Kicking Sunrise has also shared the stage with such big acts as, O-Town, Aaron Carter, Ryan Cabrera and many more. The band currently has a handful of shows coming up which you can find at their website below along with more information.

Blindside - Gravedigger

THANK GOD FOR BLINDSIDE. They have returned with new single, “Gravedigger.” Precise and urgent and full of power and soul. Plain and simple.

Almost exactly 8 years ago Blindside left us with their 2011 record, With Shivering Hearts We Wait.  If this new single is a sign of what’s to come, well, it could not come fast enough. Maybe I am biased as I absolutely love this band, but let’s face the facts here. We want to be moved and shaken and feel, it’s long overdue. Where is that passion? It’s right here. For what so many others lack, this quartet from Sweden are desperately trying to pick up the slack for. Blindside is that type of band, continuing to wear their heart(s) on a tattered and dirty sleeve that has survived storm after storm. – The band had done some teasing on social media late June and announced the new single on the 24th. After a brief delay it went live early July accompanied by a lyric video (see below). Waking from their slumber Blindside has let out a scream that must be heard. As perfect and tightly woven as “Gravedigger” is, the rawness that the band possess is still honored, and every shattered piece is spit shined. Have they outdone themselves? Quite possibly, but it is hard to say with just one song. That being said, the band always sounds fresh and well rested on every record and better and better. No need for unnecessary bells and whistles on “Gravedigger”, it stands firmly on it’s own with no disguise. – LISTEN AND TELL YOUR FRIENDS.

In conjunction with my review from last week of the Captain Black Heart record, Budgie, I wanted to share the debut single and video for their song “Surf”.

The album will be released on Friday October 6th, wanted to give it another push. Please check these guys out, they have delivered a really wonderful record.

Lisa Loeb - 3,2,1 Let Go singleThe super charming Lisa Loeb returns with her new single “3,2,1 Let Go” August 5th on Canadian Indie Label Blacktop Records!

You’ll remember Lisa mainly from her big 90’s hit “Stay (I Missed You)” included on the Reality Bites Movie Soundtrack and her now classic record with her then band Nine Stories entitled Tails.

“3,2,1 Let Go” is destined to be one of your favorite end of Summer songs. Just over two and a half minutes of bouncy pop perfection coated with the sweet candy tone in Loeb’s voice this is a much needed contribution to the Alt Pop music world. Quite honestly there is no reason why this can’t be another mega hit for Lisa Loeb. But, we all know the musical landscape has drastically changed since the mid 90’s… One can only hope that Loeb’s fanbase is sitting ready for this new single and will share it with their friends. A fun addition to the release is the inclusion of B-Side “The Disappointing Pancake”, a gather round the fire kinda tongue-in-cheek folk song about, well…a disappointing pancake. You’ll eat it up!

You can grab the new single on a Limited Edition 7 inch vinyl through The Blacktop Records bandcamp page. Get your orders in fast as the vinyl won’t last.
