Wow! That is all we can say. I am not sure if London Grammar are capable of anything less than perfection. The group previously released the excellent songs "Hey Now" and "Metal & Dust," now we get the ballad titled "Wasting My Young Years" that pulls at your heart strings. The song further confirms the fact this act is fully worthy of a next big thing label. They just have that "it" factor. Listen below.

Panties, moist, and juicy are the most common words that people have a strong dislike for in any context, except for moist in describing cake. Elliphant's latest video for "Make it Juicy" does not do anything to help the latter of those three. The black and white video shows lots of liquid spewing out of the mouth and may be NSFW. Proper manners go all out the window on this one. Her self-titled EP is out now via Bigger Splash Records. Watch below.
Hollywood, CA surf rock band Beach Day announced the release of their full-length debut, Trip Trap Attack, via Kanine Records just in time for the summer on June 18th.

It only clocks in at two-minutes, but its girl group harmonies drenched in sunshine is an appealing listen. Check it out for yourself below. [...]

"Hounds", the second single from Montreal's Valleys , sounds of hurt with Matilda Perks morose vocals and atmospheric piano chords.

The Biters have done it again. And by that I mean melted my face off (quite literally) with their audacious rock n’ roll artistry. I’m referring of course to the hot-off-the-presses uncensored video for "Hallucination Generation", the lead track from their latest EP Last of a Dying Breed which we here at MOKB, bonafide Biters fans , are more than psyched to premiere. As evidenced by their body of work, a rapid-fire series of EP’s since 2010, each loaded with electrifying, hook-filled pop, this foursome from Atlanta [...]

The song is a smooth commentary on the current state of affairs in Europe. We have had it on repeat for the last hour. Listen below.

Night Beds lush country-tinged album Country Sleep is one of our favorites thus far in this early year. In the latest episode of the A.V. Clubs Undercover, singer Winston Yellon does his take on Swedish pop singer Robyn and her song "Dancing On My Own". Yellon's reason for selecting the song was because "he has it blasting in his house all of the time." This is something that we can fully appreciate and encourage. Some of us at MOKB may or may not be known from time [...]
A couple of years back, we posted the song "Kellies" that was a part of a limited edition tour-only cassette from Tape Deck Mountain . Since then, the band has signed to the fantastic Lefse Records and released a new EP, Slow Salvation , this past March that includes the previously mentioned dark, shoegazey song. In the low budget, DIY video, the band takes that sound and puts it in front of a red, omininous backdrop with found clips that parading across the screen. It [...]
