Music of the Week #5

November is almost end, but the good music is still here. This week we show you the three music bands of the week on FrostClick.

  1. Andres Puche: Sur
    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.
  2. The Suffers: Make Some Room

    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.
  3. Little Brothers: Nostalgia Trip
    little brothers
    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.

Music of the Week #3

Happy week everyone! On Monday we love to share good alternative music. On FrostClick we publish reviews of new music bands that share their music for free. This week, we are featuring this three amazing artists. If you like to listen to electronic, hip hop, pop, rock, or funk, you will love this recommendations.

  1. Jasmine Jordan: Time Travel EP

    jasminejordanFeaturing four tracks, Jordan puts her own modern flavor in the well-loved ’70s urban soul, as greatly seen in the first track, Possibilities. Here, Jordan succeeds in combining funk and contemporary pop stylings to the vintage grittynes of ’70s music. Press play and let lush, rich vocals turn up your groove.

  2. Digital Velvet: Digital Velvet EP

    Digital Velvet: Digital Velvet EP
    Described as “funeral” and “death metal,” the self-titled EP is in league with the moodiest and darkest melodies out there when it comes to its unique, atmospheric arrangements.

  3. David Amber: David Amber and Friends, Vol. 1

    David Amber
    David Amber and Friends, Vol. 1 brings back the flavor of the previous decade while still electrifying our ears by adding his modern twist in every track.

Black ELement free album blasts on FrostWire

I first had the chance to listen to this album last year and it went straight to my iPod because of Black ELement’s innate energetic talent to rap and to make really good hip hop. It truly stands out from the hundreds of wanna-be-rappers we’ve had to listen to in order to make our FrostWire featured picks every month.
