Check out his new single, “Feel Your Love" out August 24th in the UK.
This is Allie X. Get familiar. The Canadian-born/LA based singer/songwriter has already earned praise from Katy Perry, who called her song “Catch" a "Spring Jam!" Allie’s sound changes from song to song, but think CHVRCHES mixed with Polly Scattergood + some Marina & The Diamonds and a little of the Ting Tings. Check out her video for the song “Bitch" on my blog:

Ellie Goulding first got me into altjband when she covered their 2012 single “Tessellate.” Now, it’s another pop singer…Miley Cyrus…who’s getting interested in this British indie pop band once again. Their new song, “Hunger Of The Pine" features a sample of Miley’s "4X4,” a song taken from her last album, Bangerz. The video is absolutely gorgeous…haunting and not very uplifting…but gorgeous nonetheless. Check it out on my blog. “Hunger Of The Pine” is featured on the band’s upcoming sophomore album, This Is All Yours, out September 22nd.(Canvasback/Infectious Music/Atlantic Records).
Drum & Bass producer/remixer/DJ High Contrast has a new song out that features UK singer/songwriter Clare Maguire. Check out the stunning “Who Do You Love” Part 2 on my blog (Part 1 coming soon!):
