Lunova Labs: [shhht_13]

Inspired by transcendentalism, Lunova Labs pays homage to the forerunners of the movement by naming each of the tracks in this EP after some of the leaders' major works. This short EP resounds in transcendentalist perception. It takes the idea of spirituality and nature and incorporates them into each cut. The result is a sonic landscape the showcases a mix of vocals and nature samples along with dreamy instrument work. Listening to [Shhht_13] is like being transported to another world where eclecticism, spirituality and oneness with nature exists.

Royal Teeth: Act Naturally

After some time spent on perfecting their lush melodies, it looks as if Royal Teeth are ready to become the next big thing. Hailing from New Orleans, the band is composed of Gary Larsen (Vocals/ Guitars), Nora Patterson (Vocals), Joshua Wells (Bass), Josh Hefner (Percussion), Stevie Billeaud (Guitar/Keys) and Andrew Poe (Vocals/Keys/Guitar/ Percussion). Their newly released debut album, Act Naturally, has five hits that will surely fit into everyone's playlist. One thing I like about Royal Teeth's music is their eager attempt to try something new producing tracks that play between dance pop and electronica.

Armen at the Bazaar: Noor

When I first heard Armen at the Bazaar's Drive With Me, the first thing that came to my mind was that it was equal parts weird and awesome. Indeed the album is an eclectic combination of sounds. From pop rock, to indie, to sometimes random bits, the record gives these things a fresh take. Listening to the artist feels as if you're globe trotting and exploring different regions all over the world. Armen at the Bazaar is described as a one-man-band making music from Montreal. He started out young, playing in the Toronto Children's Chorus and fronting for various bands later on. His music is honestly tough to classify although he cites that it's a mix of alternative, indie and pop.

Revolution, I Love You: We Choose to Go to the Moon

Philly based duo, Revolution, I Love You (R,ILY) comes out with their debut compilation We Choose to Go to the Moon. Despite being newcomers, they've been making quite the impression with their indie-electronic rock sound; motivating listeners to find out more about them after just one listen. Their 10-track album is filled with beautiful layers of synths, pianos and vocals. It's hard to believe sometimes that there's just two of them in the group instead of a full-on 3 or 5 piece. We Choose to Go to the Moon is essentially a hodge podge of pop, electronica, pop music and dance rolled into one lovely package.

Thin White Lines: The Silent Voices EP

Fancy some alternative punk rock music? You can get your dose with Thin White Lines' latest release, The Silent Voices. The album came about after these Aussie natives got a little bit weary of the music they were making. They wanted something louder and edgier with a more punk rock feel, hence, they came up with this brand new explosive sound. This record is the band's debut EP. It comes hooked with 5 original singles which were all recorded in a matter of 2 days, mastered by the band members and then released back in February 2011.

Martin Parks: Thankful for Sound

Martin Parks isn't the name of a single artist. It's actually a duo made up of Roman Lee & Jacque Hammond. The merger of these two amazing artists equates a great sound revolution, much like their namesake being borrowed from two of the most well-known civil rights activists there ever was: Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks. Thankful for Sound is the duo's latest record. It's an album that creatively mixes hip hop, soul, jazz, R&B and even a bit of electronic dance. Thanks to this lush combination the album is exciting, upbeat and worth grabbing at first chance.

Republic of Lights: Go Rococo

After receiving a huge amount of praise and positive reviews for their album as well as live performances, Republic of Light seems to have had a good start on their musical journey. These Chicago natives created quite a bit of noise in the indie music world with their album Go Rococo. The crew is composed of Alan on vocals, Brian on guitars, Greg on keyboards and Rosie on guitars. Combining a flurry of indie pop, new wave, great lyrics and tons of catchy rhythm; the band is easily likable while the record is a great go-to album if you want something to keep your energy up and bouncing.
