What is FrostWire?
FrostWire is a free, open source BitTorrent client first released in September 2004, as a fork of LimeWire.

Have a happy week! Today we want to share with you the best alternative music of the week on FrostClick.com. Take your time to listen to these bands. You’ll love them!
Farahri is an artist that cares about the impact her music has on her fans just as much as she cares about her music making people dance. She describes her debut album No Fear Just Play as “emotionally provocative” and also maintains a public diary on her website to keep her fans updated with her state of mind – being a friend as much as she’s a musician.
Sheets by singer-songwriter Leah Lawson from Nashville pivots around the idea that there can often be much beauty in human frailty. Showing herself at her most vulnerable, Leah makes her music easy to relate to while she attempts to capture the mood we all have after a disappointing day.
Ty Andelman originally belongs to the group Lyonn as its vocalist. At Your Age, his first solo project, is a collection of tracks that he wrote before the formation of his band that could not be used in any of their records since they differed from the band’s style of music.
Acoustic rock band Fever Fever‘s debut album, Aftermath, was a slick collection of hook-heavy infectiously catchy pop-rock. Their latest release, however, finds the band putting away their electric guitars and basses to give us a set of acoustic renditions of some of the most-adored gems from their discography.
This week, let Kirsten Arian accompany your travels with feel-good alternative pop tunes in This City Kills. Featuring five tracks, Arian adds new flavors to give your everyday listening experience a kick of spice and freshness.
As you know, Funk is a music genre that originated in the mid- to late 1960s when African American musicians created a rhythmic, danceable new form of music through a mixture of soul music, jazz, and rhythm and blues.
Today, we want to share with you a 5 amazing funk music bands that you must listen to! These bands share their music using the Creative Commons license.
Moe Shop gives a certain spin to the Future Funk world. It has a very energetic vibe, leaning towards the Future side of the genre. It almost has sounds similar to J-Pop, but those kicks and snares are still laid over funk samples that will make you dance like you’re in an animated music video.
Lawrence is an eight-piece soul powerhouse from New York City. Led by the talented sibling vocal duo Clyde Lawrence and Gracie Lawrence, produced by Grammy Award winning producer Eric Kranso, and influenced by old school and new school giants, Lawrence presents a beautiful LP of dynamic vocals, powerful horns, and soulful grooves. As their first and maybe most important album, they’ve rightfully called this releaseBreakfast. We’ve found a sampling of some of the delicious tracks on the album.
LA-based group Shoos Off injects some funk into your day with Most Times EP. The album features five tracks that oozes with musings of pop, hip hop and r&b as well as a dash of eccentricity by using a wide range of instruments with a sense of control.
Ride and curl along waves of luscious ecojam funk in Hit Vibes by Saint Pepsi aka Ryan DeRobertis. Teeming with thirteen tracks, this album will get you moving through it’s creative experimentation on fresh hip grooves.
Taking a share of the delicious musical pie is newcomer Bonnie Bordeaux (even her name sounds super gorgeous), who’s bringing her own iteration of funk by tastefully concocting it with 40’s style of jazz and soul. The result? A stunning 7-track debut masterpiece that we’ll simply refer to as The Damsel Diaries.
Sometimes it’s really difficult to discover new great artists on the Internet. That’s the reason why we created FrostClick, in order to review and share the music of alternative artists. Today we want to introduce five amazing artists that you must listen to today!
Melissa is a great singer. We just love her. She started signing professionally at the age of 5, began playing shows since high school – and after some considerable success moved to NYC to take on music as a full time profession. Since then she performed at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Saban Theater, Bitter End, and Village Underground.Feels Good is singer’s latest mixtape, carefully crafted with a help of few friends such as Eazi Money, Paulie, Quill Quasar, Vicky Victoria and Gabby Brielle. The songs are a mixture of fierce pop, hip-hop, and RnB, setting the mood right from the very beginning with sultry beats accompanied by Melissa’s gorgeous vocals luring you in.
Kellee Maize’s thoughtful & inspiring lyrics and the underling message of love are the most prominent. If you’ve listened to any of her previous releases, like ‘Owl Time‘, ‘Integration‘ or ‘Aligned Archetype‘, you know spiritualism takes a very important part of her work.‘The 5th Element’ is the slowest of all Kellee’s previous releases, with influences mainly from various types of electronic music. We even hear Kellee softer side singing as opposed to rapping in few of the tracks. Heavy southern style bass track ‘Dancing with Lightning’ opens the album just right.
Joe Marson has a beautiful voice. Armed with a guitar, beautiful melodies and a voice that’s heartfelt and mesmerizing, Joe Marson and the Satisfied Mind has created a gem of a record.
Listening to Jill Zimmerman’s music is like snuggling under a thick cozy blanket on a cold night. Her lyrics are introspective, honest and relatable; and paired with her warm guitar harmonies, they create an uplifting air of ease and tranquillity. The charming mix is often given touches of piano and harmonica, but the spotlight never wanders from Jill’s voice and her guitar.
Heavily influenced by acts such as Miriam Makeba and Tracy Chapman, Naomi Wachira fuses contemporary themes with African-inspired rhythms to carve out a catchy variety of folk that’s guaranteed to appeal to the genre’s avid listeners.
Pop music is not as simple as people think. Pop music can be complex, interesting, with incredible and deep melodies. So today, we want to share 5 alternative pop bands that you must listen to. You can listen to their music for free, and support them with donations if you like them.
Monk Turner has earned every right to be called the “galactic defender of the concept album”. With a prolific output of over 20 concept albums released in a decade, Monk has experimented with a plethora of styles and genres, collaborated with a staggering number of artists; and explored themes ranging from colours (Kaleidoscope) to a fictional portrait of L.A. in a pre-earthquake crisis (Emergency Songs). It’s hard not to be excited about his latest –God Complex.
Bursting with vibrant sonic oddness, Prisms EP by Warehouse Eyes treats us with eclectic harmonies, experimentation, and an elite musical taste.
Warehouse Eyes is a four-man band from Minneapolis consisting of Jennie Lawless (vocals, synthesizers), Christopher Williams (vocal, keys, and synthesizers), Kevin Scott (bass), and Alexander Young (drums).
Lily Wolf, the duo formed by Lily Wolfson and producer Alex Neuhausen, has achieved considerable success over the years with their work being featured on shows like The Bad Girls Club and Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Deleted Scenes is their third studio album and quite possibly their best.
Yesper is one of those rare Seattle jewels you can find for free on the internet. Every song on his album is kind of peculiar, engaging, magical. He recorded senses sensei EP in empty penthouses in a high rise apartment building under construction as his Bandcamp page suggests.
Singer/songwriter Candythief presents The Starting Gun, a six-piece collection of pop psychedelic pieces that’s bursting with sonic flavor in every play.
All in all, The Starting Gun gives a visual of what Candythief can offer to the table. The songs here feel finished, every line is cut perfectly to fit the melody, making it easy for listeners to digest the whole album.
A new Music of the Week is ready! Listen to this incredible three music bands. If you like Electro, Rock or Soul, this is for you!.
The Code are rather fascinated with enigma. Their album cover is a stark white image of a cassette tape, their website and social media accounts do not reveal much about them, and their name as well, is a term associated with secrecy. Perhaps it is to focus all attention to their work rather than themselves, but there is a charm to this air of anonymity which also lingers in their music, intentionally or not.
#Alternative #Rock #Blues #Indie
Hailing from San Francisco, CA, The Stone Foxes has already made their name in the indie music landscape throug smooth blues mixed fused with a spicy kick of alternative rock. Stone Foxes consists of Shannon Koehler, Elliott Peltzman, Vince Dewald, Ben Andrews, Brian Bakalian, and Spence Koehler.
Toronto-based songstress Kiki Rowe might be a newcomer on the music scene, but that doesn’t mean that Kiki Rowe (Keandra Shan Lal) is not slowing down when it comes to great music. Kiki Rowe has been making waves in the indie landscape, and with the release of her self-titled album, the 19-year-old has formally debuted her journey to the music world.

Accompany your travels with the latest EP from singer/songwriter Fleurie titled Fear & Fable. The Nashville-based artist cooks up seven pop-induced tracks that will make your every journey more memorable, tying the perfect anthem to every foreign landscape.
The album utilizes the rapper/producer’s tried-and-tested formula of hip hop + RnB that has brought success, not only to Soulja Boy, but to a lot of hip hop artists in the past. What makes this formula work is the perfect match between the evocative sensuality of RnB tunes and famous hip hop themes.
Welcome the new year with ambient electropop tunes from New York-based songstress Noosa. In her latest album released on 20 May 2014 titled Wonderland, Noosa treats old fans and casual listeners with nine tracks of impeccable tunes.
Jack White brought back the old and dusty blues to the mainstream music charts. He made it cool again, he turned on a fuzz pedal and gave us riffs that we are still singing nowadays.
He evolved the dusty blues into something that teenagers, hipsters, selected ears, could listen and enjoy. Countless bands, very successful and famous ones (insert The Black Keys here) and not that famous ones all over the world, were influenced by him. HolySexyBastards is one of them. This is a Venezuela born, Canada based band and they can hit you like a 350 truck going at full speed.
Miami rapper Rick Ross delivers as promised his new free mixtape “Black Dollar”. Download the Black Dollar mixtape by clicking on the button above. It will take you to DatPiff, but since it’s a promoted mixtape, you don’t even need the DatPiff account to download it.
November is almost end, but the good music is still here. This week we show you the three music bands of the week on FrostClick.
- Andres Puche: Sur
Andres Puche is the lead singer of HolySexyBastards (we reviewed their previous album right here on the HolySexyBastards) and in his first solo album he gives us a whole new side of his musical brain or alterego. Sur is a record that goes around folk, pop, cuban trova, psychedelic sounds and even shades of hip hop. His influences do vary, and his album can sound alike Tame Impala and Silvio Rodriguez all at once.
- The Suffers: Make Some Room
Hailing from Houston, Texas, The Suffers is a ten-piece band that offers a rich blend of classic American soul with rock n’ roll. Giving a foundation to vocalist Kam Franklin is a well-founded, solid sections of rhythm and horn.
- Little Brothers: Nostalgia Trip
Little Brothers are a talented crew not afraid to break boundaries. Though the styles can seem somewhat abrasive, none of it sounds stale. Nothing is overdone, everything is fresh. Such a thing can’t be emphasized enough in music. Indie music is having a bit of an identity crisis and Nostalgia Trip 2011 fits that category pretty well. The sporadic nature of the music really makes you wonder whether this album was actually made in the 21st century.

- Mitch Murder: After Hours
Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden, Mitch Murder is the moniker of producer Johan Bengtsson, creating retro synth pieces that remind you of the ’80s. Amidst the sudden overflow of artists/producers creating ’80s club/electro music these days, Mitch Murder separates himself from the rest by staying true to his chosen era and creating a genuine representation of its sound and culture.
- Homestead: Homestead
Homestead‘s self-titled album portrays a blend of sound that reminds us what it means to be lost and found, to let go and discover, to wither in winter and bloom in spring. In this five-track ensemble, Matthew Brue (vocals/keys), Trey Glaspie (guitar), Chris Munoz (bass/synth), and Hunter Sprague (drums) treat listeners with upbeat, synth-driven alternative pop melodies.
- FLEGMATIC: Esprit de conquête, la mostla tape
French rock music doesn’t exactly have a reputation for being spectacular. When people think of French music, images of jazz bands in Parisian night clubs and street musicians on the Left Bank may come to mind. Crooners. Edith Piaf. Singers that put you in the mood for romance and bottles of wine under a cute full moon.
- The Peach Kings: Mojo Thunder EP
Featuring four alternative indie pieces, Mojo Thunder is a follow-up collection to the band’s debut EP,Handsome Moves. The Peach Kings is the brainchild of Paige Wood and Steven Dies. According to their website, this cinematic garage rock duo weaves “sexy and relatable songs are the soundtrack for their intimate love story.”
