Check out the diverse, experimental new single from John Mark McMillan titled “Mercury & Lightning”, below. Pre-order the album today on iTunes and get 4 songs instantly!
The spotlight should shine brightly on this new band called Voyagers out of Washington state. The band just released their debut single titled “No Consequence” (through bandcamp for name your price) and it is a refreshing take on the post-hardcore/indie rock genre. Smooth vocals that aren’t off tune, well placed bass, guitars, and percussion. I’m loving the bass heavy sound (at least on my stereo) and I feel these guys have a lot to say through their music and a sound that will keep them ahead of the pack. Please give these guys a listen and prepare yourselves for the sounds of Voyagers. RIYL: Thursday, Sparta, Thrice, Brand New, Jimmy Eat World, and DENS. More news to follow.

I want to encourage all of you to check out this new laid back indie rock/pop band called LOWERCASE committee. They are from Las Vegas, feature 3 brothers (and their friend on Drums), and would please fans of Walk The Moon, Two Door Cinema Club, Foster the People, and Coldplay. I’m loving their new song titled “I Know” that you can see the lyric video for below. The band was formerly known as Three Cord. You can also hear their beautiful take on the Coldplay song, “The Scientist” after the bump. Make sure to follow them on Facebook here. Thanks John Gagnon of the band TAKE for the recommendation.

A new band has formed called “CHPTRS” and they have released their debut titled “Chapter One” through iTunes. This mysterious band features Josh Auer of Pax 217 and formerly of OC Supertones, AVNER. His new band writes the kind of moody, ambient, post indie rock that will enlighten your senses and make for completely memorable listening experience. This is the kind of album you listen to in full from start to finish. They call themselves “Cinematic Indie Rock” which you would definitely agree with upon listening. It is available here on iTunes and they have instagram account here to follow (@wearechptrs). I don’t see a Facebook/Twitter/YouTube yet but you can get the release on a few other networks like Amazon and Google Play so get it where you can. You can also purchase on CD right here.

I am a personal fan of the music from this So Cal. dirty blues duo named Little Hurricane. I’ve been promoting their music since the very beginning when I found out Anthony Catalano (Ex-Next in Line) began a new project. You may not appreciate the fondness I have for this group nor agree with me that they are one of finest most cutting edge indie artists in their genre. One thing is for certain I’m a sucker for a good hook in song and I feel that these two make beautiful music that anyone can enjoy. They may not fit the standard “guidelines” of typical IVM releases but don’t let that sway you from enjoying their music. This new music video for their track “OTL” is HEAVY in content and presentation. It’s very well done and suiting for this modern day love song. Did I tell you that Anthony and drummer CC just recently got married? That’s what this song is about, their enduring love for one another. I’m including the video below along with a few others including the Little Hurricane version of the Next in Line classic “Ocean’s Firing”. Check it out. The group’s third full length, “Same Sun Same Moon” releases worldwide on April 14th 2017.
