Good stuff

Love Me Tinder by Emma Di Lemma

Indie Band Guru

Fun song with a heart pounding beat. Even funner when you absorb what the song is really about. 

Michael Ige submitted media.

Distant Dream- (Lyric Version) by Uncle Tadashi & Da Boyz

Indie Band Guru

Not one of your best tracks in my opinion. 
The message and story are clear but the song just doesn't grab attention and offer the fun of the past music that you sent us. 

Robert Dauphinais submitted media.

Indie Band Guru

Solid raw punk sound. The lyrics are deep at points.
If I had to nitpick, the guitar melody may get a little too repetitive.

YOU'RE NOT MY FRIEND by Phoebe Silva X The Warm Blooded

Indie Band Guru

Video is very good. Good classic groove to the song. 

Nick Arneson submitted media.

Indie Band Guru

Entertaining video and excellent use of sound. Solid programming of the beats.

Pretty Obsession by Daulton Hopkins

Indie Band Guru

Smooth production. Nice use of the full sonic spectrum. 
If I had to nitpick, it may need some breaks of the beat to keep the attention of the listener.

I like your story. Flesh out your artist bio a little more. 
Get in touch with your next single to possibly set up a premiere. Reach out at Keith@IndieBandGuru.com

Unspool My Heart by 9 o'clock Nasty

Indie Band Guru

Catchy groove. and always an interesting topic. 

Guy Shearer submitted media.

Let's Talk About Your Boyfriend by Nine O'Clock Nasty

Indie Band Guru

Definitely an interesting track. I think it pushes your brand well. 
I may turn the vocals up a little in the mix. They should be the highlight.

Milky hands by Sahana Naresh

Indie Band Guru

Very beautiful song. The listener can feel the emotion in your laid back vocals. The ukulele does add a nice element to keep the song cute and gives it a kind of beach vibe. 
We will share it on our socials.

I Walk Alone by The Daily Spreadsheets

Indie Band Guru

Has a raw sound that hits that underground indie genre well. The straight up beat keeps the groove going well.
If I had to nit pick on something, the vocals seem a little whiny.

TheMeskimo submitted media.

The Most Delightful Dirge by The Meskimo

Indie Band Guru

Cool chill vibe with some psychedelia thrown in for good measure. Good background music.

Roy Freeman submitted media.

Oliver by Gal Musette

Indie Band Guru

nice vocal delivery. Very pretty song. The male vocal (is that Rufus?) breaks up the song nicely to grab the listener.

Roy Freeman submitted media.

Indie Band Guru

Beautifully unique vocals. The interesting beat and instrumentation keep the attention of the listener as well. Quality songwriting.
Honestly, I expected a different tone with the title "Summertime". I was pleasantly surprised.

Disaffected Scrolling Thru by Incendiary Sweet

Indie Band Guru

Solid songwriting. The opening is quite different. Kind of feels like 2 separate songs. Not sure about commercial viability. Possibly with a bigger production style and focus. Personally I like the rockin' section more.

Early PR would probably mention the wheelchair-bound front woman angle but then could focus on the music after that. It is rare (especially in the rock vein) so it would be a catching point. 

Ricky Moore submitted media.

Indie Band Guru

I like the raw effects laid down on this one. Kind of a future/punk sound.
Lots of sounds coming together in a mellow way sometimes and jarring way at others. 

Charlie Duda submitted media.

Marbles by Charlie Duda

Indie Band Guru

Congrats on the release. Fun little melody that gets real catchy. Has a throwback feel to 60's pop.

If I had to nitpick it takes a little too long to get to the meat of the song/vocals 

Charlie Duda submitted media.

Really Really by Charlie Duda

Indie Band Guru

Nice sound bringing back memories of the mellow mid 90's alt-rock. Solid production. I may pop the lyrics a little more in front to grab attention with the chorus.

Nice to see you again by Jack Hamill

Indie Band Guru

Definitely think you are on to something. Unique voice that drips emotion. The drenched production works on this song. I'd like to see you explore other production styles too. 

Henry Alexander submitted media.

Tell The Future by Henry Alexander

Indie Band Guru

I like the way the song attacks right away. Vocals are unique. Cool insertion of innovative sounds as well.

Frederic Winther submitted media.

Radio Sound by Nova Waves

Indie Band Guru

Definitely an Elliot Smith vibe but kicked up with a more modern sound. 
Cool song that is pop-relatable but extends into other realms. And yes the melody does creep its way into the listener's subconscious!

Natalie Barth submitted media.

Horoscope by Natalie Barth

Indie Band Guru

I like how the production builds from relatively simple at the start to a mix of many sounds as the song progresses. An intriguing song that I feel has potential. If I had to nit pick, the hook could grab more. A little too similar sounding to the rest of the track.

submitted media.

Indie Band Guru

Solid! I like the simple beat allowing the focus to be on the flow.  Video is well made too.
If I had nitpick, I would look for a catchier hook.
Good work

Clifford Reeves submitted media.

3 AM by Clifford

Indie Band Guru

The dark electro beat is quite mesmerizing.
Not sure about the repeated verse. It gets a little repetitive (but it sticks in my head so....) 
The sped up verse is really good and creates some energy to change it up. 

Annalisa Giolo submitted media.

Invisible City by Inanna

Indie Band Guru

Fantastic video. Multiple great visuals. 
The emotional vocals push forward the meaning of the song well. 
Keep connecting with the community to build a raving fanbase.

Painful and Slow by Marcelo Quinonez ft. 33trees

Indie Band Guru

Solid song with a strong message. The afro-latin flair adds an interesting element that draws attention.
This song could connect with listeners on an emotional level.

Henry Alexander submitted media.

Crush by Henry Alexander

Indie Band Guru

Good attention grabbing song. The emotion pours out in the vocals. 
The video is well made as well. Top notch stuff, especially for a newer artist.

Sugar by Niamh Watson

Indie Band Guru

Smooth beautiful voice (amazed Niamh is only 16!). Sweet summery song that creeps into your head. 

Gabriel Bass submitted media.

I Got Your Light by Kora Karuna

Indie Band Guru

The interesting experimentation grabs attention. (It may get a little repetitive, in my opinion though) 
Great imagery in the video to tell the story.

To The Top by Cluttered Clarity

Indie Band Guru

Definitely has a catchy groove and solid beat. The vocals are mixed very well.
The horns mix it up a little. The song may appeal to an older crowd trying to hold onto their youth

submitted media.

In The Unknown by Nelss

Indie Band Guru

cool synth pop sound. The beat is solid. I might like to hear a bigger bass drum to keep the beat in the dance music vibe. 
Keep making contacts with other artists in the scene. That is the best way to build. Work together.

Bre Cabin submitted media.

Rhiannon's Synthetics by Bre Cabin

Indie Band Guru

It is certainly different. The song seems to go in a lot of different directions. Odd mix.
The pieces are pretty but a little too 'arty' for my taste.

Kevin Rogers submitted media.

Passenger by Shoemaker Levee

Indie Band Guru

A wide diversity of genres collide for a complete sonic explosion. Very interesting. 
If I had to nitpick it took a little time into the song to see where it was really going. 
We will be sharing the track.

Nightingale by Sukh

Indie Band Guru

Beautiful arrangement and production. The emotion comes through the speakers over the dark yet uplifting melody.

Tarantino by THE FRST

Indie Band Guru

Love the laid back indie vibe of the track. Has a classic late 90's feel. Cool guitar tone as well.
We can share it on our socials.

Ricardo Temporao submitted media.

Indie Band Guru

The juxtaposition of the laid back vocals and the interesting keyboard melody really grabbed my attention. This track could go in multiple directions. Very listenable.
The video adds a nice layer letting the fans behind the recording scenes. 

Jo Garcia-Reger submitted media.

Until It Was Done by Jo Garcia-Reger

Indie Band Guru

Nice simplistic song. Vocals are good. The big anthemic sound is great but it takes a little while to get to. The guitar cuts in and out a little creating a jarring effect that I do not really like personally. But it does have a nice raw acoustic effect. 

Wilson Getchell submitted media.

I Hope I Make It by Wilson Getchell (from the band Thirsty Curses)

Indie Band Guru

Great work. Sound is high quality for a couch concert. This should reach your fans well.
We would love to have you come on and to a Live Stream in our IBG LIVE group on Facebook. 
Get in touch. @IndieBandGuru

Bones by Oliver Stay

Indie Band Guru

Loving the retro feel of this. Could hit what is going on in music right now. Look for outlets that are highlighting the newest song by The Weeknd.
