Sykes started out as a visual artist, and her music speaks to that. It’s heavy and solemn, and ever changing in terms of style and substance. The band’s live show is, surely, a spellbinding experience.” - Groovemine, Audiofile

Jesse is an old friend of Jeff’s from Seattle, who many years ago, used to practice in his moms basement (ha!). She was in a different band then, but now tours as the Sweet Hereafter and they’re amazingly talented. She has a gorgeous voice, also very very sweet. We had a chance to chat with her for a bit, her and Jeff reminisced for a while and she later signed our concert posters (I’ll upload a picture tonight). Check out their music here. You’ll thank me!

A new Defining Genre is out discussing the lusciousness of Brazilian bossa nova:

"An offspring of samba and jazz, bossa nova offers complex harmonies, a second beat emphasis, limited percussion, and a swaying, lazy afternoon feel." - Groovemine

Consider expanding your international music horizons with the Finnish band Regina. Groovemine gives this album four stars:

On the whole though, the band definitely has a sunshiney bent such as on unpronounceable standout track “Jos Et Sä Soita.” With its cheery keyboard backings and a melody that teases listeners, the song sounds a lot like the backing track for some Cher Horowitz-esque (lead character from ‘90s teen flick Clueless) shopping spree. There’s also the funk guitars, organ beeps on “Päivät Valuvat.” The chorus of this song also reveals a trend on the album, Regina tends to make its choruses consist only of the song titles and “oohs” or “ahhs.” But that’s not a deterrent to enjoying them, it just makes it easier to sing along.
