REVIEW: Eden The Cat – Live In A Basement Apartment

Artist: Eden The Cat
Album: Live In A Basement Apartment
Genre: Folk, Acoustic

The best music hits you like a drug. It rolls over your body with a sensation that can only be compared to the first drag on a much needed cigarette or the first sip of that whiskey you’ve been thinking about since lunch. You get high off great music. A high, I might add, that no amount of liquor, weed, smoke, or pills is ever going to replace. Great music puts you in a state of intoxication so entirely satisfying you don’t need anything else to be …

Julia Nunes Mends Broken Hearts With “Something Bad”

Julia Nunes is the kind of musical sensation that can only exist in the new millennium. You may not be familiar with her music, but if that’s true it’s likely due more to the amount of time you’ve spent on YouTube than her marketing efforts. Nunes leveraged the world’s largest video platform to build an audience from the ground up, and along the way she won the hearts of many influential industry pros, including the ever-amazing Ben Folds. Her new album is just a little under a month away, and earlier this week Nunes shared a video for one of …

This just might be the greatest video on the internet today.

American Opera has spent the entirety of his summer on the Vans Warped Tour, and each week along the way he has released an acoustic cover of material from other various Warped Tour artists.

Yes, the Michigan-born singer-songwriter has transformed Riff Raff’s biggest song into an acoustic offering that will have you …

Watch Leon Bridges Perform “Coming Home” Acoustic

2015 is the year of Leon Bridges. In a time where everyone is fighting over social media about whether or not they get the opportunities or co-signs they deserve, Bridges is focused solely on resurrecting a long lost sound that is desperately needed in today’s music climate. We have been following his rise since the fall of 2014, and with the release of Coming Home in June he took yet another step towards being the international sensation we know he will eventually become.

You Cannot Resist Brian Marquis’ New “From Boston” Video

Brian Marquis initially found his way into the national spotlight during his time with Therefore I Am. Those days have come and gone however, and now Marquis makes his living as a singer-songwriter with a record deal through Equal Vision and some of the catchiest acoustic songs you have ever heard. You may have heard the solo record he released last year, but something tells me many of you missed it. Either way, I’m fairly confident everyone will fall further in love with Marquis after witnessing his new music video.

“From Boston” is a song that is both hilarious …

Theory Of A Deadman Go Acoustic, Butcher Tove Lo’s “Habits”

Modern rock greats Theory Of A Deadman have built their career on brutally honest lyricism and catchy, damn near impossible to ignore rock melodies. Their albums are littered with tales of love and heartache, as well as the substance abuse that often follows, so it kind of makes sense that the group would attempt to cover Swedish singer Tove Lo‘s chart-topping hit about those very same topics, right?

Recently, Theory Of A Deadman attempted to satiate fans’ demand for new material by announcing the release an acoustic EP, Angel, set to hit stores on April 28 through Roadrunner …

They teamed up with Absolutepunk to premiere the song, and you can also give it a listen below.

Cartel have kept themselves busy over the last 12 months, and they aren’t slowing things down in 2015.

Leon Bridges Shares “Coming Home” Mahogany Session

Fast-rising up and comer Leon Bridges is currently overseas making his first live appearances in Europe. Footage of his performances have yet to appear online, but earlier this week the Texas native visited the folks behind Mahogany Sessions to record a stripped-down version of “Coming Home” you won’t soon forget.

Set in what looks to be an abandoned building, Leon Bridges’ Mahogany Sessions appearance is one that takes place entirely in black and white.
