Beggin For Thread - BANKS

BANKS comes out swinging with this single, leading up to her first album, Goddess. Her voice is smoky and her music is almost reminiscent of Fiona Apple, but with a bit more energy in her step. Her lyrics and voice leave her exposed and vulnerable, and that chorus will leave you bobbing your head all day as you leave the song on repeat.

We think BANKS will be big, so keep an eye out for her. She’s dark and emotional, but she takes all of this brooding material inside her and fashions a beautiful song with depth. Her album is intended to drop September 5th, 2014. For additional fun, check out “Drowning.”

timetogetsome said: Hello how do i become a blogger? I have always been able to make sound judgments (get it ha) about a wide variety of music genres. Or do you only accept submissions? Thanks, Eleanor Goldson

To get started, we like someone to do a trial submission for us. Pick a song you’re really into (or a band you feel should be featured) and submit a 100-200 word post about them. If we dig it and you had fun doing it, we have someone usually do a few more before pulling them on. We’re always looking for more help.

Playlist: Covers
Cover songs are always polarizing - you either love them or you can’t stand them, often from a state of disbelief that another artist would touch such a well-established song. I’m from the former camp. Half the time, I don’t realize I’m listening to a cover until the chorus kicks in, and the other half of the time, I’m excited to be hearing a new-to-me song to which I already know all the words.
So this playlist is a sort of toast to the artists whose creativity and originality lent itself to being repackaged in a new form. Each of the artists presented here took a song they know and love and put their own twist on it, whether by changing the instrumentation, arrangement, tempo, or genre entirely. I think that’s what makes cover songs so fun, that you catch a glimpse into what inspires established artists.
After all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Weatherbox - Flies In All Directions

Finding themselves somewhere between the emo revival and experimentalism, Weatherbox really knocked it out of the park with their new album, “Flies In All Directions.” Essentially the brainchild of Brain Warren, the album lives up to its name sonically. I hear a little Say Anything, a little Saves the Day, a little bit of The Fall of Troy, all culminating into a dreamy album that reflects the last 5 years of emotional turmoil that Warren and his bandmates experienced. Unpredictable and melodic, it’s a great album from start to finish.

Thanks for posting a track from this album, Dom!
