Groove to the Melody of Melody

12 01 2009

There is a time and place for relaxing acoustically styled jazz, and Melody has hit the proverbial nail on the head. Featuring female singer, Melody Gardot, Melody matches the seductive quality of other jazz female vocalists such as Norah Jones. If the lighting is dim, Melody adds the perfect touch for dinner, late night studying, or what ever else you might think of. I recommending giving “Goodnite” a listen. It offers a walking bass line enhanced by Gardot’s melodic voice. They’ll be performing in Washington DC in a few days and have the potential to join the major music scene. Hit up their website and you’ll have the opportunity to listen to a few songs simply by loading the website; it’s Flash based. Keep it running in the background while you do some work and let me know what you think. Oh, and try not to fall asleep, it really is relaxing.

An Endless Sporadic, Still Unsigned

12 01 2009

Despite having been featured in both Guitar Hero III and Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland, An Endless Sporadic remains unsigned. Their music features metal structure and chord progressions, yet utilizes clean and innovative melodies. Their songs are not predominately heavy, but still offer those with long enough hair an opportunity to do some head-banging. Ff you can’t master “Impulse”, their hit from Guitar Hero III, on expert, I still recommend you give An Endless Sporadic a listen. Even who steer clear of metal might be pleasantly surprised.

Guru Josh Project

10 01 2009

Formed in 2007 Guru Josh Project is a techno/electronic band which brings back some of the rave flavor of the 1990’s. Their blend of classic rave beats and thumping bass meets an instrument typically foreign to techno: the saxophone. They have become quite popular in Germany, but it proves difficult to find their music in the United States. Check out their MySpace page below to demo some of their most famous songs including “Infinity Mixes.”

State Of Ohio

9 01 2009

State of Ohio is an indie rock and pop band based in Cleveland. Their sound is a great mix of punk energy, classic rock riffs, and catchy pop choruses (think The Ramones meets Tom Petty meets the Beatles). The band has gotten rave reviews in the Cleveland area and are working on branching out and playing shows across the nation. Give their music a listen and make sure to see them live if they come to your town.

Welcome to the Bungle

9 01 2009

They’re not quite new. In fact, the band formed in the 1985 and has since disbanded. However, if you haven’t had a chance to listen to Mr. Bungle, you’re missing a bit of great music. I’m not sure there is a specific genre to catagorize Mr. Bungle, but I think it falls somewhere between electronic and alternative rock/metal. Give it a listen and let me know what you think. Their music is available on iTunes as well, but here on their website you can demo a few songs.

Check Out Full Service

7 01 2009

Full Service, a reggae-fusion-rock-funk-etc. band from Austin, Texas definitely deserves being checked out. They’re growing in the Austin music scene and recently spent some time in Philadelphia writing and recording their new album. From their witty stage names, like Hoagie and Bone Saw, to their eclectic repertoire, Full Service has the potential to become an exceptional band if they continue to keep on rocking.
