Singer-songwriter Taylor Berrett is new to the scene, but he’s been keeping busy. Last year, Berrett toured with Alex Care and now he will be releasing his debut album, Great Falls, on March 10, 2015, via Warner Bros. Records. This is a debut album I can’t wait to hear. He may get compared to Jason Mraz, but Berrett has a more nostalgic, feel-good vibe to him that makes him different. Have a listen to his track “Those Days“ above and you will see what I mean.
Brika, is an up and coming talent from Miami and her track, “Expectations” will have you hooked. She has almost 700,000 plays of the track on her SoundCloud page and 1.2 million plays between all four of her singles. Not bad for someone who began their career in 2013 according to her Facebook page.
Her other songs, “Gold”, “Option” and “Mumbai” each have a unique sound and her soothing voice blends well with each style. I definitely can’t wait to hear an album. Check out the music video for “Expectations” above and visit her SoundCloud page for more music.
This new track from Brooklyn duo, The Golden Pony sounds a bit strange at first, but as you continue to listen to “Filthy Lover“, well, you start to like it. It’s funky, crazy and cool all at once. Who said disco was dead? These guys have an interesting creative process and they shared how the song came about:
After creating the music for “Filthy Lover”, we thought a Chanty/Cheerleader kind of vocal would work nice, like in that 80’s track that goes ‘Hey Mickey your so fine you blow my mind.’ To flush the idea out we tried recording our own vocals and pitching them way up, which ended up sounding like a mix between a little kid and a Transvestite. We thought this worked nicely in a weird way, so that we left them in!
