There’s a new electro band from NYC making waves in the music blogging world. Formed by former TV/TV members Josh Ocean and Eric “Doc” Mendelsohn And after watching their new video premiere, I can see why. Catchy beats, gritty vocals, and cool visuals make Ghost Beach a new band to watch and keep on your radar for 2012!
Two years ago, “Good Girls Go Bad” was my jam for a long time. Honestly, it was just because of Leighton Meester. Ever since then, Cobra Starship has been pretty quiet. With their fourth album coming out soon, they’ve decided to start making some noise again. “You Make Me Feel…” is a modern day pop song. Relying on a steady dance beat and catchy hook, this song is everything it was supposed to be – a dance track. I expect it to make its rounds on the radio and clubs. But in the meantime, dance to “You Make Me Feel…” here:
Like this song? Be on the lookout for Cobra Starship’s upcoming album, Night Shades, dropping sometime soon.
Summer is here! Well sort of. Although it might not be officially Summer yet, the songs that are coming out make it sound like Summer is in full swing. Here are some songs that you might’ve missed over the past couple of weeks!
House music and Europe?? Who would’ve thunk it!? Just kidding, everyone thunk it because, let’s face it, when you think of bass thumping electro music, you can’t help but think of a sweaty night club in Europe. Swedish House Mafia would definitely be played in said sweaty clubs. This group of Swedish DJ’s, yes, they’re actually Swedish, have been producing beats since late 2008. They’ve been associated with such artists as Tinie Tempah and Pharrell. So check out “Save the World” and get this party started right:

How long has it been friends? Oh..it’s been that long huh, yeah sorry about that. So how about I fill your weekend with some great tunes to enjoy while you drink some beers and grill out with your buds. Enjoy everyone, sorry it’s been so long.
The sun is out. It’s going to be at least 80 degrees here in DC. Summer is right around the corner. So what does that mean? Party songs – loud bass and 808 drum beats, synthesized melodies and simple yet catchy hooks. “Top of the World” by The Cataracs and Dev is a great example of what a Summer song should be. Although it’s been out for a while, this song has yet to hit the airwaves. The Cataracs and Dev have been featured on this blog before, but I think this is their most fun and best song I’ve heard. With The Cataracs laying down verses and providing the beat and Dev providing the hook, they’ve created another hit. In fact, I don’t understand why they’re just not one group. Anyway, forget your allergies and spring right into Summer with “Top of the World.”:
Like this song? Be on the lookout for a new album by The Cataracs dropping sometime this year and be sure to check out Dev’s new album, The Night the Sun Came Up, dropping April 2011.
To be honest, I was not a huge fan of “Hold It Against Me”.” It was ok when it first came out, then after a while, it just got old. Britney Spears’ new song, however, is a song I don’t mind listening to. “Till the World Ends” is not a song about the end of the world; in fact, there’s nothing apocalyptic about it. In fact, it almost sounds like something from a Brazilian carnival; or as someone put it, a soccer match — a very gay soccer match. The anthem-y sound of this song is what makes it catchy. “Woooaaaaaaooohhhh” hasn’t been this catchy since “Zombie Nation”. Chances are you’ve heard this song before, but there’s no reason why we can’t make sure we have it just in case you didn’t. So check out “Till the World Ends”, and if you’re wondering, yes, this song is better than Lady Gaga’s song:

It sucks that there’s a big chance there won’t be a 2011 NFL season. It’s hard to think about what we’d we do without football distracting us for a couple of hours on Mondays, Thursdays, and Sundays. Audio Push, or “The Push,” has managed to take all of that and make a song that sounds like it’s supposed to be about football, but is actually about big ‘ol butts. Sneaky, sneaky. They’ve already provided me with one of my favorite songs (and dance moves) “Teach Me How to Jerk” and it seems like they’ve given me another song to party to. There’s a certain flow to their raps and a distinct Cali-inspired sound to their beats that makes me like them. So try to do the reject and check out “Throw It Back”:
Like this song? Their interestingly titled freshman album, Broadies Over Woadies, will be dropping soon-ish.
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! Pitbullswitches it up here is back with another dance track. Here he talks about flying all around the world and spreading love and dance, much like a Latino Santa. Latino Santa is joined on the track by Chris Brown. Now, I appreciate that he’s trying to make a comeback. With Yeah x3 and being featured on other songs, he’s on his way to making that possible. But, will he ever be as big as he was before that fateful night? No – and I’m ok with that. So check out “International Love”:
Like this song? Check out El Santa’s new album Planet Pit, dropping in March 2011.
After he released “2012 (It Ain’t the End)“, I thought that Jay Sean had another hit that would be overplayed on the radio. Now, although this song made it big in the UK, it only made it to #31 on the US Billboard Charts. Looks like this ol’ broad can be wrong sometimes. Well it looks like this new song might be a little more successful. “Hit the Lights” is a new song with a very catchy beat, addicting hook , and a smooth verse laid down by Lil Wayne. Check out “Hit the Lights” below:
Like this song? Lookout for Jay Sean’s new album, Freeze Time, dropping February 22nd.
If you missed it last week, I don’t have as much time as I used to, so I am just dropping mp3′s in here that I am currently listening to for that week. So enjoy the free music and a trip into my musical mind!
