MusicMayday Parade

If you haven’t heard of Mayday Parade yet, you have definitely got to check them out! They are a pop punk band from Tallahassee, Florida. One thing that is really cool about this band is that they are so close and are willing to do anything for each other. With a group of five guys, they are always having fun, and never taking anything too seriously.

 

Their newest album, Anywhere But Here was released on October 6, 2009 and ever since they have been attracting new fans from all over the world. Mayday Parade is very versatile and relates to many listeners. Here they talk about one of the cool things about their album, “We were striving to make a record that meshed together really well and that was actually an album in the sense that all the songs sound different, but are working together toward a common theme.” They actually even had 50 songs to choose from while putting together the album and it was a hard choice to decide which ones to use. Some songs were easy to pick but others were more difficult because they each had different songs they loved. At the end they just ended up choosing the songs by voting on each. Looks like this method really worked because this album is a big hit and I love every song!

Check out their video for their song Anywhere But Here in their album Anywhere But Here

 

MusicSparks the Rescue


Not much comes to mind when thinking about the state of Maine except for their thousands of lakes… that is until now.

Sparks the Rescue is a 5-man pop/rock band ensemble from Portland, Maine. Their originality, high energy, and musical talent makes this band a force to reckon with.

Ten years in the making has evolved Sparks the Rescue, comprised of Alex Roy (vocals),Toby McAllister (guitar), Patrick O’Connell(guitar), Ben Briggs (bass) and Nathan Spencer (drums) from high school wannabes to rock stars. In 2009, MTV crowned them the official winner of the “I Want My Music On MTV! Competition!, and they are now are touring across the country on the VANS WARPED TOUR.

Their latest single “We Love Like Vampires” off of their “Eyes to the Sun” album has caught the attention of fans and vampire lovers everywhere. They have incorporated societies obsession/fad with vampires into a pop/rock love song.

I love their music video because it is unique, yet relatable, and I must say they do look good with fangs!

MusicSantigold + Animatronic Love = I’m A Lady

Ok, so finally here is an animatronic LOVE song that I’m in LOVE with: “I’m A Lady” by Santigold. Check out this video, where Santi White who makes up the Santigold voice, sings her heart out.

Here, a lone man makes his perfect robotic lady on a rooftop in NYC. This video is much more low key than either the Lady Gaga one or the Black Eyed Peas one. However, I truly enjoy listening to this song over and over.

 

 

MusicNew Single from She & Him!

Summer is fast approaching, and I have a feeling that She & Him‘s new album Volume Two will be essential part of my summer soundtrack.

If you aren’t familiar with She & Him, here’s the breakdown:

The band consists of M. Ward, a indie singer-songwriter who rose to fame out of the Portland, Oregon, music scene, and Zooey Deschanel, one of our favorite actresses here at Lulus.com. M. Ward was impressed by Zooey’s singing in the movie Elf, and after she sent him some demos, he insisted she record them proper. Thus, She & Him was born.

I first heard of She & Him almost two years ago to the day, when I was asked to record a video review of their first album, Volume One, for the college radio station I was working for. I’ve had them stuck in my head ever since.

The pair just premiered the video for their new single “In the Sun” that’s absolutely adorable. Check it out below: 

Their sophomore album, Volume Two, hits stores March 23, so mark your calendars.
