Darren Guyaz & Beth Wesche didn’t set out to become the folk-pop duo known as “March To May.” There were no flyers or “musicians wanted” advertisements to formulate this project.
Through chance encounters and a road trip with friends, the Seattle based musicians simply found each other and their affinity for music.
It’s no surprise that their songs are refreshingly organic, with no preconceived notions of what their art should be. Darren & Beth view March To May as a constant evolution and plan to constantly include other artists on their musical journey.
“The Water’s Edge,” is the debut release from March To May, which sounds like anything but a debut. The songs are masterfully crafted, sonically beautiful and lyrically resplendent.
It features the #1 Yallwire video single, “Embers.”

New England based veteran musician, Nick Duane, has been a long time advocate for original Indie music, stating, “You make your music regardless of a recording contract or a live band or any of the arbitrary rules.” With so much of the industry putting out cookie cutter pop songs, Nicks music is refreshingly original. Equally important… his songs are well crafted art brimming with emotion. Stylistically, his music can be described as indie rock infused with ambient synth pop… think 80’s-90’s Bowie meets Sting.

“Cosmic Carnival,” is the new studio album from east coast psychedelic-indie-rock group, The Striped Bananas.
Their classic sound is teeming with organ, guitars, lush vocals and even sitar! Reminiscent of Moby Grape, The Rolling Stones and The Beach Boys, members Duncan, Chantelle & Andrew aim to bring a modern perspective to psychedelic music while respecting their influences from the 60’s and 70’s.
“Cosmic Carnival” is available on CD, Vinyl or digitally, and features 10 new tracks including a trippy cover of Del Shannon’s “Runaway.” My favorite track, “Girl You Got Me Feeling Alright,” will have you bobbing your head along before the verse lyrics kick in.

Mythical Records announces the 2015 release of The Synthetic Dream Foundation – “The Witch King (1st Movement).” This release is the first part of a trilogy, with 3 new songs being released every two months for the rest of the year.
Combining dark contemporary classical music with industrial strength electronics and beats, TSDF’s art moves the listener through a myriad of sonic landscapes. Listing to the tracks, “In the Realms of the Unreal,” “The Human Harvest” and “In Letters of Black Night” make it easy to see why The Synthetic Dream Foundation is in demand for film scores and remixing. Not limited by any single genre, and overflowing with creativity, TSDF simply creates true art by using organic and synthetic textures.

After listening to The Fabulous Downey Brothers upcoming record, “Squiggle Dot Dot,” I could hardly wait to put a visual to this incredibly quirky, energetic pop music blowing up my speakers. With hints of Devo, B-52’s and They Might Be Giants, my curiosity was peaked. I went on YouTube and watched the video for “Fun At The Mall,” and was not disappointed! The band far surpassed my expectations of what a live performance would look like. Hailing from Olympia & Seattle, Washington, The Fabulous Downey Brothers consist of Sean, Louis, Freddy, Chandra, Alex, Josh & Liam.
Their upcoming release “Squiggle Dot Dot” comes out June 6 in digital stores through Swoon Records.
(available on tapes, CDs & vinyl in summer)
The album is available to preview in iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.

In 2014 NYC pop band Rexford released it’s debut EP, “Good Lie.”
Matthew Hashimoto, Derek Nelson and Floris Boere’s goal was to “just write good songs.”
With so many bands focusing on defining their sound and image, Rexford’s honest approach to music has paid off. Not only are the songs memorable, they’re refreshingly original, best described as Pop Music with a hint of Soul and sprinkled with Indie.
Much of their sound can be credited to the engineering and production skills of keyboardist, Floris Boere.
With the addition of Eitan Akman, Rexford can often be found headlining NYC venues such as Rockwood Music Hall, Spike Hill and Piano’s.
Check out their NEW single, “Back Around.”Available on iTunes

Los Angeles based blues rock band, Them Howling Bones, prides themselves on taking rock back to its roots. Emulating the attitude of some of their influences from the ’70’s, this band makes fearless, in-your-face rock and roll that bleeds emotion. The band’s ability to connect with total strangers through music is no mystery. There’s nothing fake here. No cookie-cutter song structures or vocals hidden in reverb and pitch correction… Just honest tracks performed with the common goal to “move people with great songs.”

“Why fit in, when you were born to stand out?”
No one lives up to this saying better than Wu-Tang Clan-affiliated rapper Christ Bearer.
He may be best known as the rapper who cut off his penis and jumped off a second story balcony claiming that “sex is for mortals, and I am a god…” but Christ Bearer does more than stand out in every aspect of life.
It is now act two in C.B.’s hip-hop career,
or the Second Coming, if you will…
Earlier this month Christ Bearer released,
