In rare moments of insanity, I get this overwhelming desire to blog about something outside of the scope of music. To pontificate and philosophize on matters both urbane and banal or greater or lesser import – in short to offer the world the gift of my wisdom on matters geo-politcal and inter-stellar.  Fortunately for me and more importantly for you, those moments pass and then I hear some great new music that blows me away.

 The Velveteens formed in the summer of 2012. The band’s sound seamlessly blends influences as diverse as sixties girls groups, Morrissey and hip-hop with classical theory and a buoyant spirit that is instantly infectious.  Do you remember?, from the band’s two song Bedroom Demos release, is pure pop heaven.  Check out Velveteens.

I couldn’t find any videos for The Velveteens, so here is the Velveteen Rabbit

We first told you about Bright Little Field when we talked about their ukulele tribute to The Replacements.  Today, we have an original song by the band called Rubber Chicken.

In case you missed it, here is information on the Replacements tribute:

The Skeleton at the Feast is fronted by Belmont University student Levi Gordon and lays down some dope and fly… okay I’ll stop… I just can’t pull that off.  These Kids is part of a Noisetrade sampler released in conjunction with Urban Pop Showcase at the university.  Production on the song is by the one and only Hayden Coleman who we have featured here a few time.  Self-described as
“Hip-hop with a brain”, this track is pretty darn cool. Check it out.

Here’s an older live performace by The Skeletons at the Feast
Sarah J. Hyland is a jazz-influenced Australian singer. Flying into Your Arms is the lead track from her 2007 album A Girl Like Me.
