New Music Sunday: June 29 2014

Two Sundays ago it was father’s day and the boys over in Paradise Fears decided to release the song “Stories In The Dark” which lead singer Sam Miller says, “everything i know about myself, i know because of the stories my dad told me when i was a kid.” This song really shares the emotion that Sam has when he reminisces about the stories he used to hear from his own father. The guys released this song for free download so their fans could share it with their special story tellers in their lives. It was made clear that it is not only for fathers. Everyone has a special storyteller be it a relative, friend, caregiver. I personally shared this video with my father because he used to read me stories when I was younger and introduced me to the whole world of music.

Head on over to soundcloud to check out the song and snag a download if you like what you hear! I hope you enjoy

Music Video Monday: the Colourist- Little Games (2013- Universal Republic Records)

This video makes me feel

So in 5 days, this band will be opening up for Panic! at the Show Risa and I are going to. I had never heard of them until a few weeks ago. We looked them up on itunes, listened to this song and I literally have been hooked. It has the catchy rhythm and I love the vocals. Overall, it is one of those tracks that makes me want to get up and dance. I can’t wait to see them live and look forward to a review then!

Check out the Colourist on twitter, facebook and youtube!

Acoustic Wednesday: All Time Low- Damned if I Do Ya (Damned If I Don’t)

All Time Low is always one of those go to bands, I listen to them in any mood. They have a song for when I’m happy, sad or when I feel like pushing assholes down the stairs. Check out this acoustic version they did for Alter The Press! Also is it just me or is Alex about to lose his pants?

This is one of my favourite tracks off of the new record Biography of Heartbreak. This acoustic video really lets you see how much emotion singer Joel Kanitz lets out when he performs.

Enjoy

The Years- Casualties

I saw this band on my 20th birthday at a small bar venue in Toronto last year and they were so great. I just love their whole Red Wine and Clarity album (which you can download for free on facebook). I love their acoustic rock sound on their album and I think that these guys have so much potential. They are all so talented and dedicated, they interact with their fans on twitter and like I said in a previous post, I find to be an important aspect of the music industry today.

What else to say about these guys? I don’t even know how to express my love for their music, check it out for yourself and let me know what you think!

Hit them up on Twitter & Facebook

Keep an eye out for tomorrows Music Video Monday!

Music Video Monday 26: Fourth and Coast - Hopeless Romantic

This music video makes me feel:

like dancing.

I discovered fourth and coast when James told me about his band in line at the Paradise Fears concert in Detroit, he walked up to us shyly with his fancy iphone in his hand and asked me to listen to his band, and I was more than willing to do so, here I am standing there thinking, “there is an extremely cute guy promoting his band in front of me, keep it cool”. He kept squinting because the sun was in his eyes and he had his fake, no lens glasses. His band was playing with Hello Highway and he called us his Canadian girls. The night I got home, I purchased their EP on itunes and have been jamming it since (oh yeah, this concert was in february). They released this music video and I think it is adorable. I like that they include all the band members, even if they don’t all sing. It’s good to give everyone a bit of camera time. I love the beach so maybe I’m a little bit biased but I think beach dates are the cutest.


Feel free to check out fourth and coast on Twitter, Facebook AND EVEN TUMBLR


Until next week, keep on rockin’

Once Upon A Time- HeartAttack (Demi Lovato Cover)

I’d be lying if I said these guys were new to me, but I don’t believe I’ve ever posted about them on this blog so here goes. If you know me, you know I have a thing for Arizona boys, they’re just so fantastic (sorry fangirling moment). Almost all the bands I’ve listened to that come from Arizona are kick ass, when this band followed me on twitter about a year ago, they were really into communicating with fans and building friendships which I always find to be an admirable trait in a band. In today’s society where social networking is so prevalent, it’s nice to see bands take the time to interact with the fans who help their name get out their.


I chose this song because it’s the most recent recording I’ve found by them and they’ve grown a lot over the last year. The OUAT that I listened to a year ago sounds quite different from the one this year. They’re the same great guys but I love seeing the growth and progress that they have made.

On their facebook page, their cover photo has the date 5.28.13 that is coming up soon, and it has been described as the Next Chapter of their story. So hook it up on facebook and find out what the next chapter is!

I would highly suggest following these guys, checking them out and saying hi, they’re uber nice and friendly.

Check them out on Twitter Facebook

Music Video Monday 25: Paradise Fears- Mirrors (Justin Timberlake Covers)

This Music Video makes me feel-

IN LOVE

Okay, as you guys know, I’m a bit of a fangirl when it comes to Paradise Fears. I just admire everything that these boys do. Their covers are always so unique and creative. I love this version of this song, the piano part in the beginning gives me shivers, and Sam Miller’s adorable little smiles throughout just melt my heart. I don’t have anything really to say except that I think this is great and I hope you guys enjoy it, just as much as I did.

Until next week,

xoxo
