Song of the Day: Phantogram “Don’t Move”

Ahhh Phantogram I love you. Don’t Move has been stuck in my head all week and I’m determined to cover it…somehow this will happen! This fantastic Saratoga Springs duo (appropriately named Josh and Sarah…me and my brother’s name thank you very much) is another indie/electro/psych pop, whatever the hell you want to call it, band with an absolutely delicious sound.

Check them out for yourself and go buy their EP Nightlife!

Song of the Day: Purity Ring “Belispeak”

TGIF!!! The weekend is here and I’ve got lots of good music streaming through my headphones today, especially my pick for Song of the Day.

Purity Ring is an electro pop, or “Future Pop” if we’re getting technical, duo from Canada. They’ve yet to release a full length album as a group but you can find a few tracks floating around the blogosphere. The thing I love the most about this band is their use of synth style instrumentation underneath Megan James’ ethereal vocals. Their hip-hop, R&B and pop influences are intertwined to make a unique record, beautifully mastered for my wannabe hipster taste.

They’ll be opening for Neon Indian next month at the Granada so definitely expect a full report on the show! In the meantime check out their latest single Belispeak!

Ellie Goulding & The Boom Blasters – New Music!

The summer is flying by and I’ve been busy having fun with different types of music and artists. Side note – it is hatch chili season (finally) and I’m definitely due for a food post soon so send me your ideas for hatch recipes so I can get to cooking!

I recently recorded a cover of Guns and Horses from one of my favorite artists, Ellie Goulding. The fabulous Jon C from the band Intake helped me out with his guitar and vocal skills so check it out!

On the opposite end of the music spectrum…I’ve been recording some fun pop tunes with producer and songwriter, Ben C Jones. I love writing and playing my own music, but every once in a while it’s fun to step outside the norm and have a little fun. Sometimes I feel like music is taken a little too seriously, so with that, here is a sample of my electro-pop side (any takers on some alter-ego pop names…let me know). 🙂
