You don’t know what love isI can honestly tell you thisPeople that love do not purposely cause painThey are there for others when it starts to rainWhen those dark clouds roll inWhen they fall from grace again
Julien the Child sounded like a strange name for a music project to me, but I have heard worse. This one is the brainchild of a Floridian named Oliver Eldridge. His music is inspired by Joy Division (you’ll hear that in this new song) and has been compared to the “lyrical depth” of Bright Eyes. His music has a great beat that you can dance to and that has that vintage electronic feel to it that can be enjoyed with music from bands like Joy Division and Echo and the Bunnymen.
Dislike Trump? So does Californian singer-songwriter Eric Anders, who very recently released his ten-song anti-Trump album. The album is titled ‘Eleven Nine.’ Anders is donating all of the proceeds from this album to Lambda Legal, which is a “501(c)(3) nonprofit, is a national organization committed to achieving full recognition of the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and everyone living with HIV through impact litigation, education and public policy work,” according to their website.
American High are a rock quartet hailing from Sacramento, California. In March they released this debut full-length album, 'Bones in the Attic, Flowers in the Basement', and I was able to get a little 5-song taste of it through SoundCloud. Their music is catchy and has kind of a 60s and 70s rock influence to it, mixed with some folk and Americana as well.
Saint Blasphemer is a prog rock sounding metal band. Their music seems to defy rock genres. They hail from Santa Ana, California, and have a new 5-song EP out. The band consists of John Castellon on guitar, Thomas Monroe on vocals, Steve Shell on bass guitar, and Steve Ybarra on drums.
Roger Jaeger seems to have found a way to blend together the sounds of the radio pop rock you hear each day on commercials and walking through the grocery store with a more outside the normal pop atmosphere sound. It’s kind of like college rock meets pop rock. It’s sensible, sounds good, is different, but has that Top 40 vibe nonetheless. Jaeger hails from Oklahoma and “Elevator” is a track from his third album, ‘Start Over.’
