Balmorhea

21 Oct

Balmorhea is a  band that is strongly influenced by classical music and post-rock. They play beautiful instrumental  music that can evoke strong emotions. They are not a very popular band, but one that I think everyone should know. I just bought their latest cd Constellations which came out earlier this year. I love everything they do.

Artist Spotlight: Los Lonely Boys

22 Sep

So I found about the Los Lonely Boys from my iTunes library. I was scrolling through exploring my music, nostalgically listening songs I haven’t listen to while, and when I got to them I clicked on their song “My Way” and I was like why have I never listened to these guys before? They are awesome! I look online for some more music by them and I found out that I did actually know a song by them, “Heaven”, which was number one the charts in 2004. Their latin rhythms and their awesome rock riffs are great and they are definitely worth a listen. So check them out.

Local Music: The Lords of Liechtenstein

8 Sep

The Lords of Liechtenstein are an acoustic rock duo straight out of Homdel, NJ. These two brothers’ catchy melodies and great vocals are reminiscent of the music of Matt Costa and Marcy Playground and remind me of happy times relaxing in the sun. What really stikes me about the band is their versatility. The duo creates a very full sound in their music and utilizes a variety of instruments including ukulele, mandoline and piano. Although they do not have a drummer during live performances, Noah covers the drums and percussion as well as the ukulele and keyboard on their demo tracks. Be sure to check them out on their facebook here. Also if you like their music and live near New Brunswick, NJ they will be playing a show at The Court Tavern on October 8. Check out their facebook event here for more info. Happy Listening!
