NoMBe

Image may contain: one or more people

Noah McBeth (alias Nombe) was born in Germany and now lives in California. His music combines Electronica, Soul, and Indie-rock. He has been around music all his life...oh and his godmother is Chaka Khan. That kinda helps give you a good musical push in the right direction.

So chill, so sultry, so funky, so nice.









RECOMMENDED!!!

This is another rising star for sure.

Allison Crutchfield

Image may contain: 1 person, standing and outdoor

'Tourist in This Town' is the debut solo album from Allison Crutchfield. Here she has made an essential album for any fan of the 90's indie-pop Sound (think Belly and The Breeders). The heartfelt lyrics resonate as the catchy melodies and twangy guitars make you smile and leave you with that warm and fuzzy feeling.

Truly an exquisite pop experience.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - The Lord Of Lightning vs Balrog

Basement Revolver

Image may contain: 1 person, indoor

Wearing their 90s influences on their sleeve, Basement Revolver has managed to do what few bands can....make something unique. These Canadian rockers are one to keep an eye (and ear) on.

You can hear bits of The Pixies, Catherine Wheel and others in their sound but the combination of fantastic music and angelic vocals raise them above the crowd.

Seriously one of the best things I've heard all year.

I expect great things from Basement Revolver.

Hype Machine




I have been, and still am, honored and proud to have had my blog picked (back in 2014) to be part of The Hype Machine blogroll that helps people find new music.

Help me and many others to help keep Hype Machine running for many more years to come.

In their own words....

"How did we get here?

Hype Machine was built in a college dorm room in 2005, and over the years has grown into a dedicated community of music fans. We are a team of three—an independent company without investors or funding. Most of our revenue comes from ads on the desktop site, but due to changes in online advertising, this is no longer enough to support the service.

We’ve been amplifying the work of emerging musicians, writers, and communities for the last 12 years. Remaining independent has allowed us to make the kind of product we want to use ourselves: focused, playful, and in line with our ideas about what’s ethical. (We don’t collect or sell user data or emails, for example.)

What does Hype Machine do?

Hype Machine tracks music that people are talking about. We index hundreds of publications, handpicked as trusted voices in the global conversation about music. Our thinking is that if one of them liked something enough to write about it, it’s worth a listen.

Every track indexed ends up on the Latest page, whether it’s published by a site with 20,000 followers or 20. Listen and you might stumble into your new favorite song, a style of music you hadn't heard before, or an artist that was way off your radar.

Music is more accessible now than ever before thanks to streaming services. That’s great! We use them too. What makes Hype Machine unique is how we approach discovery—finding new and unfamiliar sounds through the lens of the writers in our index. Because sometimes, the most exciting stuff is just outside our listening habits.

How did it start?

In 2005, music discussion was dominated by a handful of large print magazines. Blogs emerged to cover a broader range of music beyond the top commercial releases of the day, spreading the conversation across thousands of sites.

Hype Machine brought all these posts together in one place for easy streaming. Built as a personal project, it quickly caught on with curious listeners. The following year, Anthony bought the hypem.com domain, moved Hype Machine from the server it shared with his collection of Godspeed You! Black Emperor concert photos, and increased capacity for our growing audience.

We're grateful that Hype Machine has been able to reach so many people over the years. It may seem like a large company from the outside, but it's just the three of us sitting around a kitchen table, answering emails and writing code.

Why are we raising money?

As music experiences on the internet have become more centralized, powered by a handful of large services, they’ve also become more alike. Today, a listener’s choice is between minor interface and catalog differences—a narrow way of interacting with a key part of contemporary culture. We think that people deserve a multitude of ways of experiencing music, and we’d like to build more of them with your support and feedback.

Crowdfunding is our sole option—online advertising only works well at immense scale (while introducing complex privacy issues), and venture capital prioritizes returns over sustainability.

Your monthly contribution will allow us to keep Hype Machine running, but most importantly, continue creating ways to explore new music. We’ve been thinking about these ideas for many years, and we’re ready to try more of them out with you.

Let's build it together.

—Dave, Zoya, and Anthony"

Floating Points - Silurian Blue

Miranda Lee Richards

Image may contain: one or more people

Miranda makes dreamy folk-rock, and it really does ROCK when it needs to (like the second track, The Wildwood). Beautiful vocals, haunting melodies and at times, some serious rock.

This is one talented lady who was destined to be a star.  Check out the PR bio below.

In their own words....

"Born in San Francisco after the summer of love and before the dawn of disco, MIRANDA LEE RICHARDS grew up in an artistic and bohemian environment that has informed her adult life and work. After graduating from San Francisco School Of The Arts, she began to pursue a musical career. She met Kirk Hammett from Metallica who taught her to play Mazzy Star songs on guitar. Her early demos reached Anton Newcombe and she joined his band, the Brian Jonestown Massacre. MIRANDA then signed to Virgin Records and released her debut album "The Herethereafter," a mix of folk, psychedelia, country and indie pop, and found fans worldwide."
