From the famous Blue Room in Nashville comes Dinosaur Jr. with a fresh take on their single “It’s Goin’ Down”. The performer has teamed up with Third Man Records for Blue Room Session 7, and we’ve got it. The new take on the song is a live version of the original song. The lyrics for the song are sung over a guitar while drums and bass follow in the background. The live version is just as great as the original, making the listener feel like they are actually in the bands presence to make the listener feel like they are at a live concert.

Montreal-based No Joy has teamed up with Third Man Records for a Blue Room Session – a series of live recordings with bands – performing their single “Hawaii”. No Joy’s live version “Hawaii” displays a fun, fresh take on the song. It’s still got that rough edge we’re so fond of, and we’re floored by the intensity of the sound.

“Hawaii” on Blue Room Sessions is available now. Keep up with No Joy here.

After the release of her unmistakably incredible single “Little Moon”, Katie Ekin is back to mesmerize music listeners everywhere with her latest song “Someday I Will”. “Someday I Will” shows off Ekin’s skills as a singer, displaying that there is more behind her powerful voice. On top of Ekin’s voice is sift instrumentals that let the listener feel every emotion Katie Ekin feels throughout her music.  The song is all about wishing you could have said something to someone when you were living in the moment and not having the opportunity to tell that person how you feel because it is too late. It’s highly relatable, and very powerful.

Synth pop act The Old Pink House – comprised of Max Middleton, Harry Smith, James Grant, and Christopher Brown – is getting ready to take over the summer with their new music.  The Old Pink House takes it back to the 80s with their latest track “Jaded”, which is a mixture of guitar and bass, as well as vocals that are easy to listen to. The track talks about the things people go through in life, the things that people go through that often wear them down and make them feel trapped in a never ending cycle.

After a sell-out at last October’s headline show at Think Tank in Newcastle, The Old Pink House has announced an even bigger show at The Cluny this August. As well as this, there are upcoming slots at their hometown’s Hit the North Festival and the renowned Live at Leeds Festival.

“Shake Baby” is one of the newest singles from Katie Toupin, a track found on her upcoming EP Moroccan Ballroom. The track has a rock sound to it with an overlay of guitar that will have you jumping up and down, vibing to Toupin’s strong vocals.

In the video for the song, Katie Toupin is seen walking in the city to get to a destination. The singer walks through the city and later takes a subway getting to where her performance is. We may or may not have it on repeat. Right now.
