Rose of the West

Rose of the West, a quintet from Milwaukee lead by Gina Barrington, offers luscious dream-pop.

Billie Eilish

Billie Eilish’s 1st album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, has just been released.

Hard to believe this is her debut as her songs have hundreds of millions of streams.

And this L.A. singer/songwriter is a mere 17.

“Bad Guy” is a sample of her talent.

The album was released last year but deserves more attention.  Hear a couple of songs:  “Just Like You” and “Sports”.

Now that I have surfaced from the deep I can post once again with a song of the day.

We so enjoyed Stella Donnelly’s powerful Thrush Metal EP last year.

The Black Keys

The Black Keys, better than ever with “Lo/Hi”, their first new music in 5 years.



Gorgeous ethereal sounds from Finnish musician GEA, the moniker of Laura Avonius.

Her debut album Butterflies came out a couple of years ago.

As the seasons change, her new song “Snow” is a melancholy memory of winters past.
