Rising Taiwanese act The Fur. enjoyed galavanting around SXSW 2019. We know this because they shared a brief glimpse of the experience with us. Check out the view from their lens below, then head over to take a listen to their debut album Town.

“Yes, we are so happy to play at SXSW.”

We got hair done at artist lounge and felt cool and ready to be on stage.

Edit.

Ren made a new friend.

Zero is at Walmart.

We saw someone wearing the same shirt as Ren’s, so took a secret photo with him. Nobody noticed.

It’s challenging to finish a stage setting within a short period of time at B.D. Riley’s. We yelled at each other in Mandarin and moved so quickly to get the change-over done as fast as possible. It’s so much fun to recall how we did the show.

We shopped at a toy store. How we wish to bring all the Rick and Morty toys back to Taiwan but we can’t.

Amy Darling is here, and she is making it quite obvious that she is NOT messing around. For the artist’s debut music video, she takes her incredible persona and rocket launches it at the music industry, utilizing psychedelic effects and bright colors to grab your attention. Once the melody grabs onto you, hold on for dear life because this act is re-defining what it’s like to be a femme fatale.

Enjoy the video below, and be sure to drop some love on Amy’s social media in support of her debut release!

natalie lynn, “one”

natalie lynn, “one”

Pop/rock musician Natalie Lynn has released a sparkling, fun track as her debut with “One”. Starting with upbeat synth and incredibly invigorating percussion, Natalie’s vocals are introduced amidst a cloud of cotton candy sound, strength and vulnerability dripping from her lips. The bridge brings with it more 80s and 90s influence, and we’re fully on board with the freeing, incredible feeling it brings out in all of us.

Natalie Lynn describes the track like a rollercoaster. “Pure excitement and vulnerability. The feeling like you might just be on the top of the world.

the head and the heart, “missed connection”

the head and the heart, “missed connection”

The Head and The Heart have announced their new album Living Mirage will be out May 17th, and leading up to this release that have debuted a new track titled “Missed Connection”. Containing a smooth bass line, heavenly vocals and harmonies, “Missed Connection” holds a little bit of a different sound from the rest of what The Head and The Heart has had to offer, according to drummer Tyler Williams. “A lot of the beats on that song are quicker, and there are high hats that were never in our music before”.

With that being said, “Missed Connection” still has that feel that we have grown accustomed to experiencing from TheHead and The Heart. This means a perfect combination of alternative, pop, and indie-folk, creating another hit for the six musicians. This upcoming album suggests that this will beThe Head and The Heart’s best work to date. Member Jon Russell has stated proudly that, “this is literally the most work we’ve ever done on an album,” and it definitely shows in “Missed Connection”. Let’s hope for more of the same when “Living Mirage” releases on May 17th.

On Saturday, March 9th, the illustrious Flor opened for Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness at the Truman in Kansas City, MO. The city welcomed them back like old friends, as they explained how the city had accepted them so graciously during their first performance at that venue last year. Their soundscape is magical, and the feeling in the room as they performed was no different. Here are a selection of our favorites – unedited – so you can experience some of that energy.

P.S. If you haven’t seen them live, then you haven’t experienced the electricity of “Warm Blood” the way it was meant to be enjoyed

prep rally, “roll with the punches”

prep rally, “roll with the punches”

“Roll With the Punches”, the new single from Prep Rally, is a synthy pop track full of fight and perseverance.  The message is exactly what the title suggests.  This single will be featured on Prep Rally’s upcoming EP “Head Rush”, which will be out April 2.

The upbeat piano and chimes in the background create a positive vibe to support the lyrics. The electronic duo based out of Denver is able to create an environment within the track that suggests when one is down it does not always have to be sadness around them.  Unfortunately, most will give up, and even listen to sad music to drown their feelings. Not PrepRally. They believe in picking yourself back up and dealing with whatever is thrown your way, and this single supports that.

Make sure to keep an eye out for the upcoming EP “Head Rush”, and check out Prep Rally’s website at http://www.preprallymusic.com/.
