WillMoffettWill Moffett is an emerging singer and songwriter from Chicago whose musical style is straight to the point indie rock.

Music is an emotional outlet for Moffet whose lyrics are obviously genuinely straight from the heart and a way to release all the stress of life, and Moffett is a fairly diverse songwriter with tunes that range from punk and rock to blues and ballads. His single, “I Want My Money Back”, is raw but catchy, with a severe punk edge, while his single “Being Ignored” has a cool rock and hard rock feel that’s full and rich and smooth.   You can listen to Will’s music, download “I Want My Money Back” and follow him at the links below, so check it out today!

Unlike choosing our individual favorite songs of the year, or collectively deciding what the 50 Best Albums Of 2014 were, figuring out what independent labels made the biggest impression on us was overwhelmingly easy. Our criteria was simple: Which independent albums caught us by surprise this year, and who released them? There are dozens of labels not included on this list that we have personal affinities for, but these are the six that we could agree had the most impact on both national and international underground scenes, and whose rosters made regular appearances on Stereogum this year. These are the labels that champion artists we’ve seen in basements and in DIY venues, or who we discovered on SoundCloud while getting ready to go out. These are the labels that we have to thank for what comes next.
6 Breakout Indie Labels Of 2014 – Stereogum.

With so many talented bands out there, carving out a space in the jam arena can be a challenge these days. Just over a week ago though, I had the opportunity to play a show at Hank’s Pub with a sweet, new band called The New Outdoors, and these guys appear to be challenging the standard definition of jam a bit by mixing it with blues and a little twist of dirty, indie rock.

This trio has only been playing together for about six months, and I was initially surprised to see them take the stage with no bass (just drums and two guitars). They ripped out an hour-long original set of tasty jams though like it was nobody’s business, and Sean O’Brien even switched it up to play bass late in the set!   Andrew Shough’s chill vocals were the cream and sugar to my coffee, especially while also playing guitar. His rich vocals are a standout and would lend themselves well to any number of acts. Ryan Magner is the centerpiece, holding them all together on the drums and driving each tune exactly where it needs to go. Together, the trio’s relaxed, smooth jams have a little funk and a little blues guitar making The New Outdoors easy to groove too!  The oh-so-smooth guitar leads and fills take it up a few notches, and there’s a killer dirty, grungy, and almost psychedelic sound to their tunes that take it to the interesting and intriguing and “I want more” level!   These cats are hitting the Dayton scene right now, and YOU should make it a point to catch an upcoming show, or two or three!

Maybe you heard that YouTube will soon be integrating a licensed music service and that many indie videos will be coming down.  Read this article to find out the details.  It’s a complex situation, but this makes it a little clearer.

afterlifepromotionToday, we are stoked to help present the release of the brand new video for the hot, new song, “The Afterlife”, from indie rockers, To No End! “The Afterlife” comes to us off the Cincinnati and Dayton Ohio based act’s sophomore album, Peril & Paracosm, which has received rave reviews and tons of local press, and for good reason (We snagged a copy of this album earlier this year and saw these guys live, and they blew us away!) “The Afterlife” is a dark and soulful song that really gets in your brain, and the new video incorporates those feelings perfectly with hazy, live performance style images and deep shadows interspersed with flickering images of things not quite seen.  With excellent hooks, heavy blues rock guitar, funky rhythms, fantastic vocals, a trippy breakdown, and a visual feast, what’s not to love about “The Afterlife”!

Cover_Front_3_Tracks_PromoRussian singer-songwriter, Paul Kremleff, recently released his cool and upbeat, “3 Tracks Promo” EP from his upcoming album, “Lounge For Intellectuals”.  Kremleff is not just a singer and songwriter.  He is also a musician and the sole producer and creator for his upcoming album.  A unique mix of electronic pop and easy-listening, the new EP will definitely leave you relaxed.

Kremleff’s vocals have a richness and tone similar to that of Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode), but Kremleff’s melodic and lyrical sensibilities are more along the lines of crooners like Barry Manilow.   Each track off the new EP builds nicely with just the right amount of musical depth and layering at just the right time.   The EP also has a fair amount of variety between tracks.  While the overall feel is definitely in the pop and easy-listening veins, influences of everything from disco and smooth jazz to new wave and British rock are weaved into the threads of the musical landscape.   This EP is definitely one to check out and add to your feel good playlist!
