Video: Emily King – “Every Part” (Live Piano Session)


The graceful miss Emily King met up with her pal Ethan for an impromptu piano session. What resulted was a chilling live rendition of “Every Part” from her recent Seven EP, which hopefully you heard in July! Simple, modest, and beautiful – signature Emily.

Lead vocalist Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine recently performed a cover of “Take Care,” the title track from Drake’s most recent album. The performance was for her BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge Special. Sort of trippy to hear her signature dramatic vocals and orchestral sound over this song. Soak it up!

Video: Kendra Morris – “Concrete Wave”


New Wax Poetics Records signee Kendra Morris has just dropped the first single and video from her spring 2012 slated album. The dynamic personality and bellowing voice sings to command an audience.

The song is “about going after something that is so wrong,” says Kendra, “but it feels so good, and you go ahead and do it anyways. You ride that wave, and the high it gives you is incredible, but eventually you hit a crack in the pavement and are bound to spill.”

The video is an interesting tale of an obsessive lover that chases the laissez-faire Kendra to no avail. The sassy singer teases him along much to his chagrin.

New Track: Planningtorock- “Living It Out” (When Saints Go Machine Remix)


Planningtorock is a little difficult to forget with her quirky tunes. We introduced you the creative genius back in September with her “Living It Out” video, and today we have a pretty awesome remix from the super rad When Saints Go Machine.

And it’s not like the Saints are any more normal. What transpires is an eerie electro pop remix on a tripped out extraterrestrial kick. Enjoy and download below!
