Este, Danielle, and Alana Haim are sisters from Los Angeles who know how to rock. Their sound resembles a mix of 90′s R&B mixed with 70′s Rock. In others words, if Destiny’s Child teamed up with Fleetwood Mac, their musical creation would sound similar to HAIM. Their debut album, Days Are Gone, released September 27th and has been a huge success. The girls have been touring and playing music festivals all around the world. This past weekend they performed Sunday at the Treasure Island Music Festival in San Francisco and absolutely killed it. “Falling” gets a funky electro disco remix from the UK duo, Psychemagik.
Based on this remix, it is apparent that MS MR and CHVRCHES would make beautiful babies. MS MR (pronounced Miss Mister) is a New-York based duo consisting of a female vocalist and male producer. Their sound can be described as indie pop with some dark wave elements. “Hurricane” is the title track from their debut album, Secondhand Rapture, released May 14, 2013. This track is remixed into an upbeat, Madonna-esque, 80′s pop ballad by the Scottish synthpop trio, CHVRCHES. Their debut album, The Bones Of What You Believe was released September 20, 2013.
This five piece indie pop group from New York City is in the midst of a breakthrough with their retro yet modern characteristics and vocals reminiscent of Steve Nicks. Haerts‘ debut EP, Hemiplegia, released October 2nd, was co-produced by St. Lucia and features aspects of 80′s throwback pop. Indie/electro/pop L.A. trio, Wildcat! Wildcat!, successfully remixed the track with perfectly infused synths and bass, elevating it to be better than the original. Catch Wildcat! Wildcat! on tour with MS MR, October 16th and 17th at the Troubadour in West Hollywood.
An oldie but goodie! This classy and catchy indie pop track by Feist is amped up to an electronic dimension by German DJ/producer Boys Noize. “My Moon My Man” was the first single off Feist‘s third album, The Reminder, released March 2006. The remix is featured as a bonus track on Boys Noize‘s debut album, Oi Oi Oi. If you are going to HARD’s Day of the Dead, don’t miss Boys Noize performing Saturday, November 2nd, along with other EDM superstars such as Skrillex, Nero, and Zeds Dead to name a few.
London Grammar is an electro/indie-pop trio from Nottingham, England. Their music has been described as “a blend of ambient, ethereal and classical sounds” with emotionally driven guitar, vocals, and lyrics. Lead singer Hannah Reid‘s powerful voice has previously been compared to the fabulous Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine. JOBE, another artist from the UK, gives this song a deep house remake with thumping drums, brooding vocals, and a rumbling bassline guaranteed to initiate shivers. The original of this track is featured on London Grammar‘s debut album, If You Wait, released September 9th. They are also performing tonight at the Troubadour in West Hollywood with Jaymes Young.
