Katie Herzig - New Music Video and New Album Out Today!

Katie Herzig, who has been featured here before, has a new album out today titled The Waking Sleep. She also released the new video for her first single on the album "Free My Mind" which you can watch below. Katie has a wonderful folk but also quirky pop sound that makes her music unique and a joy to listen to. You can't help but tap your toes to her songs. If you like artist like Sia or Ingrid Michaelson you will love Katie Herzig! You can buy the album on iTunesAmazon or her website.

Katie Herzig - Free My Mind from Katie Herzig on Vimeo.

Apparently for this video 2000 post-its, 300 Q-tips, and 3,000 glue dots were used in the making of this video.

Mutemath's new single Odd Soul!

Mutemath is one of my top 5 favorite bands. I also think they are one of the top 5 underrated bands as well. Finally a few weeks ago I was able to see them live for the first time and I was thoroughly impressed. They played almost all new songs and put on a great show. The drummer has to tape his headphones to his head so they don't fly off while he is playing. That's when you know you are doing it right.

I got the courage to go up to Paul Meany, the lead singer, and tell him how much I loved their music. I always feel like a music nerd doing that but it had to be done. They needed to know. Paul was so nice. I actually forgot to say my name when I introduced myself and so he asked me and asked us all questions about ourselves. They have a new album coming out titled Odd Soul in the next month or two and I can tell you that its going to be one of their best. So far the two singles included the title track Odd Soul have been released and I am loving them. Check out the music video below!

Kimbra - Good Intent (New Official Video)

If its not already obvious I'm a huge fan of New Zealand singer Kimbra. She's only 21 but her voice and talent goes well beyond her age. This new music video is just fabulous. Eagerly awaiting the album's release in the U.S.! Check out the video for Settle Down as well!

New Video From Andrew Belle - Ladder

Absolutely loving this new video that just came out from Andrew Belle. I particularly love the part when he uses his vest as a parachute. Vests are more then just stylish these days...
