Hi 2 Four! Thanks for being here today!  Thank you for having me!  Is it harder to write or produce a song?  I’ve done both and both are fairly difficult but songwriting is a beast. There is a reason most mainstream songs have multiple writers and some of your favorites don’t even write. I think

Y’all are so talented and cool! More music soon?  Thank you and thank you so much for hosting this interview! More music is in the works for sure. We’re working on a couple singles which will come out this year alongside some music videos. We’re also working on our first full length album which will come out

Good grooves, solid rhymes and a generally chill vibe that carries from one melodic backing track to the next. What more do you need in a contemporary hip-hop debut? If you’re DICI, the answer – quite literally – is nothing else, and he shows us this without hesitation in his self-titled greenhorn EP. Comprised of

Hi Olivia! Thanks for being here!! Do you have a favorite holiday song? Of my own would be my latest Christmas song “Secret Santa” and from someone else would be “This Christmas” by Chris Brown! If you could choose anyone to make you dinner, who would it be and why? Probably my brother! He’s a great

Working what feels like a top-heavy synth pop track into an industrial but undeniably psychedelic-tinged rap song that could pass for club music might sound like a tall order for most artists, but for HEwas and Afroman, it would appear all too easy in their new collaborative single “Wholething.” Although steeped in much of the

In today’s fast-paced world, the most provocative individuals among us tend to be the multi-hyphenates, and in the case of author-motivator-model-entrepreneur-actress (and proud New Yorker) Sharon “Champagne” Terry, covering all the bases has never been optional. Champagne’s most recent work, a pair of urban fiction releases in The Goddess of Lust, Love & Infatuation Part 1 and Blissful

Hi Beth! Thank you for being here!  We are obsessed with your fashion style! How do you stay so current?  Well, thank you! I stay current through watching runway shows, attending music festivals, and, most importantly, staying creative in my fashion. What do you think goes into the perfect outfit?  I’m very much a “dress from

2020 has been a crazy year without question, but it’s also been a year in which we’ve seen one of the better summers for indie pop fans collectively experienced in the new millennium. Amidst a season of pure isolation for most of the world’s recording artists, incredible material has begun to come out of the

Fast, furious and packing far more of a sonic punch than most anything I’ve heard out of the mainstream lately, Jupiter in Velvet’s “Not Again” is definitely one of the more brutish moments to behold in Punk Goes the Velvet, but I wouldn’t say it’s the lone track sporting some muscle in this latest EP from

Who or what is the “Invisible Stranger?” For that Matter who and what are The PondHawks? An indie group out of Chicago, The PondHawks are one of music’s best kept secret treasures. Their release of “Invisible Stranger” serves to make them even more valuable to the music industry as well as to the history of

Origins: Singers and Songs that Made Me is the latest solo release from former Chicago bassist and vocalist Jeff Coffey. The album’s fourteen songs are covers from a wide spectrum of artists who Coffey has admired over the course of his life, but these are reverential treatments akin to pinning butterflies under glass. Coffey, instead, brings

Elz Bentley’s latest release “Buddha” comes with a matching music video further reinforcing the song’s potential impact. It’s a hallmark of Bentley’s career, thus far, that he pairs each new release with complementary visual material bursting with the same inspiration and skill heard in the song. It wraps its arms around the same urban imagery

Country fans have been leaning on the genre a lot in 2020, and as periods of great strife tend to teach us, few mediums are as medicinal as music is in times like these. In his new single “Two Lane Airplane,” country artist Gary Burk III is steering clear of negativity and downtrodden dirges and

Supple and smoothly applied to the blank canvas afforded by silence in the backdrop, the strings we initially make contact with in Jeffrey Li’s debut single “Anniversary” are a masterfully melodic element to say the least. A near-perfect complement to Li’s stunningly warm lead vocal, this textured component of a much grander harmony is far

In his new extended play, titled Insane, Tom Tikka & The Missing Hubcaps put their artistic narrative on the line for everyone to appreciate, and I must say, it’s one that feels rather refreshing this summer. Although rock has been struggling to stay relevant in the past few years, there isn’t any retrospection on Tikka’s part

From the depths of one of the coolest albums of the year “Doves of War” by the alt rock band Trenched, comes their hot new single “Wild Rides and Alibis.” An emotionally charged rendezvous with love, cheating, passion, obsessions and possession….at least at first glance. Musically driven by bass riffs and pounding skins, catchy and

Vaulting between a machine gun-style intensity and a swaggering, carefully timed execution, the flow of 8rooklyn 8atman’s verses in the new single “Chitty Bang” is as agile, lean and mean as they come – but it’s not free of muscular moxie. 8rooklyn 8atman has a very raw versatility to his sound, but while his greatest

If Tom Tikka and the Missing Hubcaps prove nothing else, they conclusively show when you play something is even more important than what you play. Take the drumming for example – by any measure, the drumming featured throughout the three song EP Working Class Voodoo is the ideal of blue collar meat and potatoes drumming, nothing intricate,

ILYAH is the rare modern performer who transcends geographic and cultural borders alike. The performer, of Moroccan descent, works out of the Boston, Massachusetts area but possesses a talent that has across the board appeal. His latest single “Habibi” shows off his cultural range without ever smacking of pretension for even a second. It’s a

Attracting the admiration of high profile artists like Lady Gaga, among others, AV Super Sunshine has amassed over 200,000 fans spanning an array of demo and geographic boundaries, the deceptively ambitious music spooling from his imagination has struck gold again with his new single “Smile”. He offers the track in two different mixes, an original
