Argentinian-born, Brooklyn-based songstress Tei Shi’s songs have been described as everything from “bedroom music” and “mermaid rock” to “future pop” and “alt-R&B”.
On her debut visit to Morning Becomes Eclectic, the singer treated us to a few tunes from her Verde EP and threw in a cover of Beyonce’s “No Angel”.
She said she was drawn to it because it was a little grittier than a lot …

Song Premiere: The Frightnrs Cover Etta James’ “I’d Rather Go Blind”

Posted June 25, 2015 by | 0 Comments | 730 views]

It’s strange to hear a reggae remix of one of the most painful love songs of all time, but somehow The Frightnrs totally make it work — and makes me want to slow dance with my head on someone’s shoulder…on a Caribbean beach…at midnight…with a full moon shining down on us.
No matter what you’ve been through in your life as far as love and …

Jet Trash

Jet Trash took their name from a line in a Tom Waits song though they have very little in common with him sonically. The San Francisco quartet have arrived with a gleefully relentless rush of a song that should kick off every single one of your summer road trip mixes.
With “Baby C’mon,” Jet Trash pays homage to their garage rock forebears (and contemporaries), but they imbue the track …

Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment – Surf
Okay, so the headline to this post is slightly misleading; Surf isn’t technically a Chance The Rapper album, though he does feature prominently on the release in his role as vocalist and arranger.
Instead, what we get is a highly anticipated album led by Chance’s friend and frequent collaborator, Donnie Trumpet, which has been rumored to be on …

Beach Baby – “No Mind No Money”
There’s something seductive about this song that just draws me in. Since I consider myself a beach baby at heart, I immediately liked their name and the music suits it.
Fans of Mac Demarco should really dig this one.
The band is based in London and have plans to play on our shores this Fall.

XO – “Flames of a Phoenix”

Meg Mac – “Roll Up Your Sleeve”
Jason Bentley has been spinning this track for a few weeks and I absolutely love it.
We were talking about it in the studio and, as he says, “it has an Adele soulfulness, but she totally owns it.”
This Melbourne-based singer is definitely one to watch and this track appears on her self-titled debut EP, out last month.

Seoul – “The …
