With the release of the Levity Remixes EP, she has taken yet another step in the right direction by teaming up with a collection of fellow rising musicians and allowing them to put their …

Bonfire are a four piece post hardcore outfit based out of Saskatoon, Canada. They just released a short split with fellow Canadian singer/songwriter New Born. Bonfire’s contribution is the emotion-inducing single “Before You Left.” We are happy to have teamed up with the band to premiere the music video for this song. You can check it out below the jump.

“Before You Left” isn’t your typical music video, as it’s a conglomerate of year’s worth of home videos stitched together. It provides a hint of nostalgia for anyone who is familiar with the shaky, often pixelated, home videos from …

Allison Weiss Streams New EP, ‘Remember When’

After weeks of teasing from Allison Weiss (a single here, a stream there), today her five-song EP, Remember When, was made available for purchase, digitally and otherwise. Furthermore, the entire thing is now available to stream as well.

The title track and “Giving Up” are great examples of what Weiss does best: indie pop with heart and a driving beat. Robyn cover “Call Your Girlfriend” showcases the raw emotion in the cracking of her voice. The cover to the EP is grabbing–bubblegum pink with a black crayon sketch of a campfire–and gets you ready to reminisce with Weiss …

Every Weezer Fan Needs To Spend Time With ‘You Blue It!’ This Week

It’s truly rare that a covers album rises above the level of novelty to become something worth longtime admiration. Of the dozens, if not hundreds of covers releases and compilations created every year, only a handful are ever deemed worthy of coverage by the vast majority of press, and of those few even less are ever spoken of in a positive light. It would certainly appear that people enjoy a good cover, but only to a certain degree, and I’ll be the first to admit that that certainly applies to me. To be completely honest, I have only found one …

Artist: Allison Weiss
Album: Remember When EP

Allison Weiss has been using her guitar to win over hearts since she was 14 years old.

The EP starts off with the title track. This is my personal favorite song on the EP. It’s full of that …
