Supergroup raprock band, Transplants got their mainstream success with their unique piano hook and croons once their track “Dimaond and Guns” was chosen for a Garnier Fructis shampoo commercial.

It’s been three solid years since we’ve heard something new from M. Ward’s indie duo, She & Him. Their latest release “Volume 3” continues to showcase their easy listening tunes with Zooey Deschanel’s alluring croons and while it may seem repetitive at first, their album explores new territory midway through.

REVIEW: Never Shout Never – ‘Indigo’

Folk music has been the latest trend flowing through mainstream radio and Never Shout Never’s upcoming release “Indigo” tosses their hat into the ring with an added twist. Unlike typical, folk music where a guitar’s rhythm has a steady riff, the band’s upcoming release “Indigo” incorporates pop-rock tracks with the occasional return to their indie-roots, […]
