Sometimes it’s really difficult to discover new great artists on the Internet. That’s the reason why we created FrostClick, in order to review and share the music of alternative artists. Today we want to introduce five amazing artists that you must listen to today!
Melissa is a great singer. We just love her. She started signing professionally at the age of 5, began playing shows since high school – and after some considerable success moved to NYC to take on music as a full time profession. Since then she performed at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Saban Theater, Bitter End, and Village Underground.Feels Good is singer’s latest mixtape, carefully crafted with a help of few friends such as Eazi Money, Paulie, Quill Quasar, Vicky Victoria and Gabby Brielle. The songs are a mixture of fierce pop, hip-hop, and RnB, setting the mood right from the very beginning with sultry beats accompanied by Melissa’s gorgeous vocals luring you in.
Kellee Maize’s thoughtful & inspiring lyrics and the underling message of love are the most prominent. If you’ve listened to any of her previous releases, like ‘Owl Time‘, ‘Integration‘ or ‘Aligned Archetype‘, you know spiritualism takes a very important part of her work.‘The 5th Element’ is the slowest of all Kellee’s previous releases, with influences mainly from various types of electronic music. We even hear Kellee softer side singing as opposed to rapping in few of the tracks. Heavy southern style bass track ‘Dancing with Lightning’ opens the album just right.
Listening to Jill Zimmerman’s music is like snuggling under a thick cozy blanket on a cold night. Her lyrics are introspective, honest and relatable; and paired with her warm guitar harmonies, they create an uplifting air of ease and tranquillity. The charming mix is often given touches of piano and harmonica, but the spotlight never wanders from Jill’s voice and her guitar.
Heavily influenced by acts such as Miriam Makeba and Tracy Chapman, Naomi Wachira fuses contemporary themes with African-inspired rhythms to carve out a catchy variety of folk that’s guaranteed to appeal to the genre’s avid listeners.
Pop music is not as simple as people think. Pop music can be complex, interesting, with incredible and deep melodies. So today, we want to share 5 alternative pop bands that you must listen to. You can listen to their music for free, and support them with donations if you like them.
Monk Turner has earned every right to be called the “galactic defender of the concept album”. With a prolific output of over 20 concept albums released in a decade, Monk has experimented with a plethora of styles and genres, collaborated with a staggering number of artists; and explored themes ranging from colours (Kaleidoscope) to a fictional portrait of L.A. in a pre-earthquake crisis (Emergency Songs). It’s hard not to be excited about his latest –God Complex.
Bursting with vibrant sonic oddness, Prisms EP by Warehouse Eyes treats us with eclectic harmonies, experimentation, and an elite musical taste.
Warehouse Eyes is a four-man band from Minneapolis consisting of Jennie Lawless (vocals, synthesizers), Christopher Williams (vocal, keys, and synthesizers), Kevin Scott (bass), and Alexander Young (drums).
Lily Wolf, the duo formed by Lily Wolfson and producer Alex Neuhausen, has achieved considerable success over the years with their work being featured on shows like The Bad Girls Club and Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Deleted Scenes is their third studio album and quite possibly their best.
Yesper is one of those rare Seattle jewels you can find for free on the internet. Every song on his album is kind of peculiar, engaging, magical. He recorded senses sensei EP in empty penthouses in a high rise apartment building under construction as his Bandcamp page suggests.
Singer/songwriter Candythief presents The Starting Gun, a six-piece collection of pop psychedelic pieces that’s bursting with sonic flavor in every play.
All in all, The Starting Gun gives a visual of what Candythief can offer to the table. The songs here feel finished, every line is cut perfectly to fit the melody, making it easy for listeners to digest the whole album.
#Rock #Indie Futurelight from Poland are no newbies in the indie-rock scene. Their first EP, released in 2014 gained them considerable attention in online circles and was also reviewed here on FrostClick. The band now returns with their second EP, Better Place, which sees them experimenting with a tinge of electronic music in their rock.
For music lovers, finding the right track that suits your palette may be a never-ending task. At times, it may be a hit and miss, jumping from one promising song to another. In I’m Not a Pilot‘s latest release titled The Story So Far, indie pop junkies who thrives in the musicality of Coldplay, Jimmy Eat World, and Ra Ra Riot may have found a perfect match.

Alternative rock is in full gear with Brandy Zdan‘s self-titled album.
Even though this is just Zdan’s first album, the Canadian singer has been a mainstay in the indie rock scene for years and has made a name for herself. Now based in Nashville, TN, Zdan’s career has seen a lot of milestones. She collaborated with Twilight Hotel for two albums: High Prayer in 2008 and When the Wolves Go Blind in 2011, which was nominated in Canada’s Juno Awards. She has also toured and debuted her EP, Lone Hunter, in 2013.
Musical duo Jack Milas and Oli Chang have been conquering the indie scene bit by bit. The Brooklyn-based musicians have already toured with big-name bands such as the Vampire Weekend, Empire Of The Sun, Sky Ferreira, and Stars. In Ocean to City EP and Some Sketches, Milas and Chang have created five tracks that mirror their experiences while traveling and touring around the country.
#Indie Coma Cinema‘s music sounds as if it came from a strange and quiet place. The band never references specific geography, but the depressive attitude in their music is one where the city moves at a slow pace, not NYC music here. This is not a 100% -depressive state- record, I think this record sings about missed opportunities, boredom and 0 things to look for. But the strangest thing that I found in this record is that you can have pop tunes here, even with the band not trying hard to accomplish this.
We recommend you Time Travel Lover. Time Travel Lover transcends the Hollywood formula of romantic comedy, creating a punching unromantic comedy that’s simple, entertaining, and incredibly brilliant, all packed in approximately ten minutes. The short is directed by Bo Mirosseni, written by Elisha Yaffe, and presented under Partizan Films.

Shinobi Ninja is an American rock band from Brooklyn, New York. The band is known for high-energy performances and eclectic sound, blending music genres such as Hip Hop, Punk, Funk, Metal, Reggae, Electronic, and Rock.
Lisa Richards is not your ordinary singer/songwriter. This Queensland native has been honing her music for decades with five recorded albums under her belt and years of touring while based in New York City and Austin, Texas.
Let’s hop on the time machine and backtrack to Drake‘s ’07 release, Comeback Season. The 23-track mixtape showcases the rapper’s development as an artist. The collection features collabs from various players in the industry such as Andreena Mill, Trey Songz, Dwele, Little Brother, Rich Boy, Malice Of The Clipse, Nickelus F, Richie Sosa, Robin Thicke, and Lil Wayne.
Accompany your travels with the latest EP from singer/songwriter Fleurie titled Fear & Fable. The Nashville-based artist cooks up seven pop-induced tracks that will make your every journey more memorable, tying the perfect anthem to every foreign landscape.
The album utilizes the rapper/producer’s tried-and-tested formula of hip hop + RnB that has brought success, not only to Soulja Boy, but to a lot of hip hop artists in the past. What makes this formula work is the perfect match between the evocative sensuality of RnB tunes and famous hip hop themes.
Welcome the new year with ambient electropop tunes from New York-based songstress Noosa. In her latest album released on 20 May 2014 titled Wonderland, Noosa treats old fans and casual listeners with nine tracks of impeccable tunes.
Jack White brought back the old and dusty blues to the mainstream music charts. He made it cool again, he turned on a fuzz pedal and gave us riffs that we are still singing nowadays.
He evolved the dusty blues into something that teenagers, hipsters, selected ears, could listen and enjoy. Countless bands, very successful and famous ones (insert The Black Keys here) and not that famous ones all over the world, were influenced by him. HolySexyBastards is one of them. This is a Venezuela born, Canada based band and they can hit you like a 350 truck going at full speed.
Miami rapper Rick Ross delivers as promised his new free mixtape “Black Dollar”. Download the Black Dollar mixtape by clicking on the button above. It will take you to DatPiff, but since it’s a promoted mixtape, you don’t even need the DatPiff account to download it.
Andres Puche is the lead singer of HolySexyBastards (we reviewed their previous album right here on the HolySexyBastards) and in his first solo album he gives us a whole new side of his musical brain or alterego. Sur is a record that goes around folk, pop, cuban trova, psychedelic sounds and even shades of hip hop. His influences do vary, and his album can sound alike Tame Impala and Silvio Rodriguez all at once.
Hailing from Houston, Texas, The Suffers is a ten-piece band that offers a rich blend of classic American soul with rock n’ roll. Giving a foundation to vocalist Kam Franklin is a well-founded, solid sections of rhythm and horn.
Little Brothers are a talented crew not afraid to break boundaries. Though the styles can seem somewhat abrasive, none of it sounds stale. Nothing is overdone, everything is fresh. Such a thing can’t be emphasized enough in music. Indie music is having a bit of an identity crisis and Nostalgia Trip 2011 fits that category pretty well. The sporadic nature of the music really makes you wonder whether this album was actually made in the 21st century.
