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.
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.
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.
#FrostWirePromotion #Electronic 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, TheStone 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.

The music of Final Round from Chicago is a head-on homage to the early pop-punk style brought about by Blink 182 and MxPx. The band’s catchy hooks and playful melody drive their sound while guitarist and frontman Matt Hampson’s bright progressions and sharp leads make the EP qualify as head-banging material.
Jyant‘s Love Overdose is exactly what its title claims it to be. The album’s 40 solid minutes of lovemaking music pack an intensity greater than anyone could have imagined before pressing play.
The three-track EP features pop-rock music in its most elementary form. Jeff relies on the genre’s basic blueprints for most part to create his tunes but takes care to add a few stylistic touches of his own here and there; fans of the simplistic manner of Coldplay or Imagine Dragons would find much appeal in the record.
#Electronic #Pop #Rock
Fresh Body Shop is the brainchild of France-based indie pop-rock musician Pedro Rousseau and with twenty studio albums under his belt and his music being featured on TV shows including Dexter, The Fosters and Gotham, its safe to say he is no amateur.
Dave Hedrick aka Color Out shares his tales of loneliness, sorrow and frustration against the backdrop of early 2000s rock music. He blends melody with grungy guitar chords and powerful drumming in the style of bands like Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age. However, soft and gentle instrumentation is given as much time in the limelight as the dense distortion; and sometimes they are woven together to contrast and complement each other like in Mercurial (Feat AJ Perdomo) and Anything But Everything.
Shinobi Ninja is an American rock band from Brooklyn, New York. The band is known for high-energy performances and eclectic sound, blending music genres such as Hip Hop, Punk, Funk, Metal, Reggae, Electronic, and Rock.
Lisa Richards is not your ordinary singer/songwriter. This Queensland native has been honing her music for decades with five recorded albums under her belt and years of touring while based in New York City and Austin, Texas.
Let’s hop on the time machine and backtrack to Drake‘s ’07 release, Comeback Season. The 23-track mixtape showcases the rapper’s development as an artist. The collection features collabs from various players in the industry such as Andreena Mill, Trey Songz, Dwele, Little Brother, Rich Boy, Malice Of The Clipse, Nickelus F, Richie Sosa, Robin Thicke, and Lil Wayne.
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.
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.
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 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.

Lisa Richards is not your ordinary singer/songwriter. This Queensland native has been honing her music for decades with five recorded albums under her belt and years of touring while based in New York City and Austin, Texas.

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‘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.
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.
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.”
