It only takes the first two chords for this song to catch your attention, so by the time this singer’s sweet vocals hit your eardrums, you know you are hooked. He is the type of singer that makes you go “damn!” after singing only one line. Once the drum line drops, you can’t help but bop to the...

It was difficult for me to choose a song to lose my Song-of-the-Day virginity to, but “Dang!” was compelling from the first beat. I think it was this fact alone that pushed me to make my choice. The first time I heard it, I was hooked by the time Anderson .Paak’s barely-audible breath comes aro...

    It’s hard to find a sound that is quite as unique as Daniel Caesar’s, an up and coming singer/songwriter from Toronto, Canada. He does not fit into any musical ‘box’, as each of his songs contain characteristics from many different genres. His new single ‘Japanese Denim’ is ...

Listening to a song like “Crown Violet” puts you in a different place. One second you’re knee deep in snow and the next you’re on a beach. Miles of white sand stretch out on either side of you and you’re compelled to listen for hours as you ponder the meaning of adulthood and life itself. ...

Tillman incorporates both cynical humor and politics into his lyrics which I believe makes Father John Misty more re...
