Review:: In The Inbetween | Seiichi Daimo
Singer-songwriter Seiichi Daimo recently released his debut EP, In The Inbetween, which combines the sound of folk with lyrics similar to indie-pop songs. Daimo’s style is unique as he includes many aspects of different genres in his music. Throughout this EP, we are able to see the versatility in Daimo’s voice and how well it pairs with multiple instruments, which makes his music truly diverse.

Review:: Make Out King & Other Stories of Love | The Tontons
If your musical taste includes Lauren Hill and Under the Influence of Giants, The Tontons are the perfect mix of the two, plus a dash of Jimi Hendrix here and there. The psychedelic rock of The Tontons includes the “old-soul” voice of frontwoman Asli Omar with the beats and a breezy background sound reminiscent of decades past.

Review: HEART | Alexz Johnson
For Those Who Like: Duffy, Lily Allen, Kelly Clarkson
You know the feeling that you get when you hear the ice cream truck coming down your street no matter how old you are? That excitement and rush, running to try and beat all the other kids to get in line first generates a nostalgic vibe with a twist of adrenaline. Then you get your delicious ice pop and begin eating it, racing to finish before it starts to melt. The sweet and refreshing taste the treat leaves is a pick me up and the highlight of a summer day. Heart EP by Alexz Johnson is comparable to this. It creates that feeling of anticipation that starts in your stomach and pulsates throughout your bones, making you eager to hear what is to come next.
