Tiesto vs DeGraw

I’m not really sure how DJs like Tiesto get their samples and I’m never really sure if they are sampling or creating something new… but this is a sample right? If not, Gavin DeGraw better sue the heck out of Tiesto…

How have they not been sued?

Rixton is the newest boy band from the UK that is attempting to market themselves as a rock band. But how has Rob Thomas of Matchbox 20 not sued them yet? Listen to the chorus’s of these songs…

Bleachers

New track from the guy who is not the lead guy in Fun.

but he is also cool.

But this song isn’t as good as the first single.

but it’s still good.

This band is going to be the next big thing on the indie, electronic, chick singer front. Think CHVRCHES or MS MR or any other band that forces you to capitalize their entire name. Very cool. Only one original song out so far, but some amazing covers are available on youtube as well, including a Miley Cyrus tune.

Twin Forks

Chris Carrabba goes folk.

Dashboard Confessional got bored of singing about exgirlfriends’ hair being everywhere, reminding them of scandals and infidelities. Now Christopher is happier, but his hair is still as dark and slicked back. He added a mandolin to the troup and started singing happier songs with a folky bounce. Not quite the same neo-folk as we’ve been seeing the past few years from bands like the Lumineers, Of Monsters & Men or Mumford and his Sons, but it’s closer than it used to be. Not that Dashboard didn’t originate with acoustic albums… so really, it’s just old Dashboard with a mandolin. Pretty cool album though. Dig on it for a while.

Bleachers

From the guitarist of Fun.

Who was also the dude from Steel Train, which is an awesome band if you don’t know ‘em.

Comes a new band, that currently only has one song. They are called Bleachers, and it’s a cool song. With a super sweet piano based loop and oddly low volume distorted microphone vocals. Also, Donna from Parks & Rec is in the video. So boom goes the dynomite. Like it?
