Aly & AJ are back with a new single titled "Church." A tongue-in-cheek track features some glorious pop synth reminiscent of the 80s. The duo's gorgeous vocals overlap with a kaleidoscopic burst of synth, thus flooding our eardrums and our hearts
It was a truly magical night to roam the streets of New York City and beyond transcendental to meet The New Tarot's Monika & Karen Walker. Our destination - Yorkafe Deux, a lovely tiny nook of a café on the East 59th Street. I first notice Karen (vocals/keyboard), comfortably seated in the corner and surrounded by kids. She greeted me with the biggest smile. There's something very darling and comforting about her aura. A very sensitive soul who finds a creative outlet everywhere - whether it be through the music that she makes with her sister, by writing in her journal or even drawing with the kids at the local coffee shop. While Monika was busy with tarot readings, I've asked Karen if it would be alright to ask her a bunch of questions.
Coming from a small town in Oklahoma, Lauren Carnahan has first dazzled her hometown audience at the age of four when she performed “Tomorrow” (from Annie) at her hometown church. Little girl, who was adopted at birth and had just survived heart surgery, received a standing ovation from the churchgoers. That was the defining moment of what’s soon to become her life’s calling.
Who says rock ’n’ roll is dead? If you do, then you haven’t met Gutxi Bibang. He is an unlikely candidate to carry the rock 'n’ roll torch, a second-generation African from the Basque region of northern Spain. Yet he still has more in common with larger-than-life musical icons like Jimi Hendrix, Led Zepplin, and Peter Tosh than he does with his Basque countrymen. Even his unique moniker speaks of his cultural clash heritage – Gutxi (pronounced “Gu-chee”), a common nickname in his Basque homeland, and Bibang, from his roots in Africa.

Meet Grace Mitchell, your new obsession. She has been on so many “Artists To Watch” lists, but I have found out about her by clicking on a Facebook Ad for her “NoLo” video. When I saw it, I thought: “What is this? Looks fun!” But fun doesn't even begin to describe this young up-and-coming artist.
