artitst: Summer Fiction | genre: indie, folk, rock | label: unsigned
At first listen it was almost as if these cats were channeling The Jam…but ’tis not so. I checked…no channeling. Good song though. “Chandeliers” from Summer Fiction‘s self-titled, debut release is a folky/indie-pop ditty that waxes a bit retro…but in a good way for sure. We totally dig the old school vibe laid down by the b/w presentation as it most certainly adds to the mystique of the video.
We did take a listen to some of their other songs via their Myspace page (click here) and there definitely some other notable tracks. Be sure to look for a full-fledged review in the not so distant future but, in the meantime, enjoy the vid and be sure check ‘em out online at MySpace and iTunes.
genre: electro | alt-rock
What happens when a classic 60′s/70′s vibe collides with indie-alt-rock? Capelle happens. These blokes from London beautifully mix hard rock guitars with urban beats and vibrant vocals. The result is a brilliant new disc entitled Money Now, Money How, Money When. One of the things that we are constantly on the look out for here at Froglix is the “it” factor. However, the “it” factor can be different things to different people. For us, it’s talented musicians with a truly unique sound that can translate equally well both in studio and on stage. Nic Capelle (lead vocals) and his compadres (Fotis – lead guitar, Quinton – bass, Kris – drums, and Sven – backing vocals and keys) really do pull “it” off smashingly well. In addition to the teaser video above, we have included (2) additional tracks to the global broadcast. While we really dig Capelle, we’d much rather hear what you think.
