I appreciate you for showing some love to these artists, streaming these albums is a really cool way to help this artist, remember to give them a follow, a + (Spotify), and a heart (social media), you might already know it but I have to say it: you rock! Waste no more time and let’s get to it!



1.- “Adverse Camber” by no ordinary fish is a really well-written and crafted retro alt-rock album. This is a soulful record of the golden era of classic rock, seamlessly blending the best of 60s pop and 90s alternative indie vibes. Hailing from Exeter, UK, this four-piece band, led by Stuart Pearce, Debbie Pearce, Rich Booth, and Gary McMullen, has curated an album that resonates with warm, fuzzy guitar tones and infectious harmony vocals, reminiscent of the legendary sounds of The Beatles.

2.- Significance is the debut album from a stunning new alt-rock project featuring Craig Douglas Miller’s return to music after 20 years, collaborating with Marty Willson-Piper (The Chuch, Noctorum, The Saints) Michael Jerome (pop poppins, Better Than Ezra, Richard Thompson) and more. It’s guitar-based alt-rock that wears its influences on its sleeve, with feet firmly planted in the 80s/90s alt-rock and post-punk. But with a modern edge that makes it timeless.

3.- In Sweden’s darkest woods there’s a micro polis named Tranås and behind all its fur coats, gossip girls and dramas stand DEGREES (DGRS), an emotive two-man band featuring Mikael Jakobsson and Rickard Folke. The guys met in 2001 and have been friends ever since. With the same love for music, both stuck in a crazy small town, they decided to put their hearts and brains together in September 2008 to form the band DEGREES. The songs on their fifth album “Pt. V” were recorded in 2012 but set aside and eventually forgotten for over 10 years. In 2023 the band decided to finally release their last album

4.- This January, Irina Imme has embarked on a new era with “Globe” being the first single on that path. This era, ultimately leading up to a new EP “Blue Forever“, tackles serious themes with moody and edgy alt-rock-infused melodies and lyricism while allowing us to live out all that painful stuff that’s building up inside. You can keep reading our review of “Globe” the single here.

5.- Martina Magionami, aka La Marti, is an independent singer-songwriter from Florence, Italy. Her music is a blend of folk and country with indie/alt-pop influences. LOOP [EP] is a small collection of moments of ordinary madness with songs in Italian and English.

6.- “Warm Waters,” the debut solo release by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Samantha Christine, takes you on a high desert trip through the brutality and beauty of the irresistibly magical and yet inhospitable landscape where the album’s songs took their final form. The Santa Fe, New Mexico-based musician has written an album that is heavy, yet sparse, pretty, yet discordant, and utterly devastating, yet hopeful.

7.- Close Drive is a four-piece band from the suburbs of Philadelphia PA. The band consists of John Antoni (guitar/backing vox) Brandon Higgins (guitar/ lead vox), William Higgins (bass, backing vox and Kevin Sullivan (drums). Playing originally as a duo the band expanded and is now actively playing shows all around the North East.

“Our first studio EP, “Old Daze,” came about with selections that we kept on the backburner as
well as songs we started writing with the conception of this project in mind. It is true to the Close Drive sound in all ways. We have upbeat poppier tracks followed by folkier more intimate tunes all in which possess catchy hooks that will have the listener singing along to by the second chorus.

8.- Hailing from the rain-soaked streets of Seattle, comes the punk rock sweethearts, Kids on Fire. Like the sun peaking through the grey Pacific Northwest clouds, Kids on Fire have crafted songs that reflect the determined optimism and resiliency that can exist in us all, even in the midst of isolation, turmoil, and struggle. With themes touching on social commentary, personal and communal growth, as well as loss, Kids On Fire have birthed a new record, The Best of the Worst of Times, that takes the pensive energy created by two years of isolation and hardship to culminate in a high powered burst of punk rock catharsis.

9.- Double StarLate at Night Inside My Head” in their own words: “We think of Double Star as something of a time-traveling expedition. Many of our songs come from riffs we wrote when we were teenagers–so we’re collaborating with each other but also with our younger selves–and our younger selves were trying to write songs that sounded like music of an earlier generation. So, it’s fun to work on a riff you wrote when you were 15 years old when you were trying to sound like a band that had broken up 15 or 30 years earlier… and then trying to update that to your current tastes and sensibilities
