They may have changed their name to Making Marks but we will always know this Oslo band as My Little Pony. Hard to accept the change in fact given that they released an album called ‘My Little Pony Plays The Hits of My Little Pony’. A band with a sense of humour and one capable of turning the tragic nature of growing old into something sweet and uplifting. ‘A Song For You (On Your 40th Birthday)’ glories on the journey to that point through the prism of the best music ever made. If your life hasn’t yet begun then this [...]
Kids are cute. Occasionally they have extremely ambitious and logically impossible goals like growing up to be a dinosaur or living off of Lunchables and Sunny D forever. That being said, Sufjan Stevens' has company. His ambitious musical map of the US of A project, had he continued, would have came to a close around 2053 with Stevens sitting at the ripe age of 78. Seems unlikely. Of course, I would have loved to see it happen. The man can write damn good music, which is why I'm here writing about how you should listen to his album [...]
On his forthcoming Fake Four collaboration album with producer/drummer Madadam , singer/songwriter/multi-instru mentalist Gregory Pepper will mash his clever pop compositions with hip hop rhythms. BIG HUGE TRUCK has been in the works since 2008 and will finally see a release on June 18th with help from various artists from the Fake Four roster including: Kirby Dominant, Ceschi Ramos, Awol One, Open Mike Eagle , and more. Let's Be Homies is the first single from the album and is more or less [...]
The XX and Grizzly Bear, huh? I don't know about you, but when I heard about this intriguing double bill, my mind leapt immediately to the question, "Will they form a supergroup called 'Grixxly??'" With the obvious answer being probably not, I next considered what backstage banter between the two groups might sound like… GRIZZLY [...]
When it comes to one band covering another, I'm not sure you could go anymore to the extreme opposite ends of the musical spectrum than this one right here. On one end you have the seemingly sweet, innocent electro pop rocker Lauren Mayberry of CHVRCHES , and on the other, Zach de la Rocha and Rage Against The Machine's anger-filled anthem " Killing In The Name Of ". It kind of reminds me of JellyBean!'s " Underwear Is For Wearing, Not For Showing Off! ", which is a cover of Sisqo's " Thong Song " that shouldn't [...]
Greetings from Kentucky, y'all! I bring to you one of my most anticipated albums of this year with Jinja Safari's debut, self-titled, album. Unless you count Locked By Land as a proper album, then this is their sophomore effort. The band continues with their worldly sound in bringing joyous music to our ears. This is a flawless album, with every track bringing something new to the table, giving an overall grandeur to their sound. Every little detail in Jinja Safari's songs are perfectly placed within the wide scheme of their music, whether it be the tribal rhythms or [...]
kate boy - the way we are oh the synth beats are even more wondrously chaotic than in ' northern lights '! i can't wait to see what kate and her crew will do for the video! future post to come, just wanted you to hear this awesome song first! http://feeds.feedburner.com/Wo ngiesMusicWorld
Wild Nothing’s Empty Estate is definitely worth renting, but only diehard fans will think it’s worth owning. Captured Tracks, 2013 6.1 / 10 Rather than release a clunky transitional album, Jack Tatum (aka...
Hey Anna: Pompette EP - Hey Anna is a band made up of Anna, Katie and Erin Rauch-Sassen on vocals, Matthew Langner on drums and Andrew Smolin on guitar. Katie plays bass and Anna and Erin do keyboards and synths sometimes, too. The band has been putting out music since their first single, ‘Blackout’ in July 2012. Their self-titled EP was released last September and now we have the Pompette EP this spring. So, creation isn’t the problem. In fact, there isn’t a problem at all. As the cover art for [...]
Just one more month to go until the debut record of Sub Pop signed Rose Windows will finally see the light of day. In November of 2011, the band led by Seattle songwriter Chris Cheveyo began working on the album with local producer Randall Dunn ( SunnO))) , Boris ) and has compiled songs that are influenced by "the Band’s folk-infused rock, The Doors organ-driven psychedelia, and Black Sabbath’s blues-based dirges" . Now a fairly epic track was made available for free - it's called "Wartime Lovers" . [...]
MyPet dropped Bodysnatcher two days ago and I’m very pumped as they only have one other song out in the world, as far as I know, and it’s bananas. Catch them at mypetmusic.com
Following up on 2012’s self-titled EP, Portland’s Pure Bathing Culture will releasing their debut full-length Moon Tides this Summer. First single “Pendulum” is a warm and reminiscing slice of seaside indie-pop that will be best enjoyed at the brisk of morning. Sarah Versprille’s ethereal vocals give us hope among all of the despair.
I don't know about you, but I can't think of a more awkward time in my life than when I was in high school. Thankfully, my awkward times in high school can't even compare to those of Jenna Hamilton from MTV's teenage comedy Awkward . Starring Ashley Rickards as the super ill-fated Jenna, Awkward follows the craziness that poor Jenna just can't avoid as she chases her dream boy. The show is like PG version of the American Pie series crossed with My So Called Life , filled with plenty of hilarious [...]
When IS TROPICAL unveiled their first music video of their new record I’m Leaving the music world was shocked. In Dancing Anymore a boy is masturbating almost the whole time. But actually it was quite a good idea to shoot such a bizarre video- they’ reached many people’s attention. Now the London-based trios whole second The post Is Tropical - I'm Leaving appeared first on Nothing But Hope And Passion - NBHAP - Music Magazine & more .

Believe us, deeming something "floaty", one of the most silliest and over-used descriptors of the music blogger lexicon, is about as annoying for us to write (again) as it is for you to see (again), but sometimes it really is just the perfectly succinct way to sum up a song. Case in point, Portland indie duo Pure Bathing Culture 's "Pendulum", a chill, smoldering wonder that, fueled by Sarah Versprille's ethereal coos and her and bandmate Dan Hindman's lush bed of 802s-indebted electro-pop gleam, seems to hover somewhere above the ground and below the clouds while emitting [...]
Canopy Climbers' album, Miles , nears closer to its June 18th release date, and the band teases some more with their new single, "Always". The previously featured, " Stuck ", originally caught my attention, and hearing Canopy Climbers' debut album, Distances , won me over. I've become a big fan of these guys' music. Expect to see a few more Canopy Climbers features here on The Record Stache in between now and the release of Miles . Until then, enjoy this stream of "Always". It's a fine piece of guitar pop. [...]
