Check out Thievery Corporation at House of Blues this Sunday

House of Blues is bringing in the duo of Rob Garza and Eric Hilton who make up the Ultra Smooth and Groove Inclined Thievery Corporation. I don't always recommend going out on a Sunday night to see a show, but this is may be the one exception where the rest of your week will be all the better for it. Who doesn't want to drift into the week swaying from side to side to the groove??

Hearts of Palm get mastered by Henrik

Hearts of Palm, based out of Los Angeles, have an album coming out called For Life. I doubt that this title has anything to do with spending time in the clink, or their loyalty to the LA Gang scene, but you never know.

H.o.P. just had a full write up done in the LA Times, and were proclaimed a "Buzz Band."

The first single off the album was mastered by Henrik Jonsson (Peter, Bjorn and John, Robyn, Lykki Li), and it just so happens that I have it right here for your downloading pleasure. Check it out, and let me know what you think.

Meet David Martin Moore

So I recently heard David Martin Moore and was stunned, and no that is not an exaggeration. I know that a lot of singer-songwriters come along and they get compared to Elliott Smith or Jeff Buckley, or in the case of Moore, Nick Drake. I don't like making those comparisons, and I'll tell you why. As each verse of Moores song Stray Age slowly unfolds, an underlying message of peace and contentment can be heard, and for me that's a message I need to hear daily.

He may be the latest in an entourage of amiable, melodic, and deep thinking journeymen to hit the indie scene, and will undoubtedly find himself being sized up against the Sam Beams or Bon Ivers, but if you take nothing from this review besides this - know that David Martin Moore sings about universal things that anyone at anytime can relate to, and that's the difference between being compared to someone and someone being compared to you.
