Calling Earth by PiMO

Liane Chan

Pretty cool track with some gorgeous imagery, those landscapes were great eye candy to an already diverse hypnotic electronic soundtrack. There's a lot of different sounds that make this track both interesting and unusual, particularly the synths after the avalanche scenes. The music syncs well with the lightning also. The scenes near the end were particularly eye catching by how unusual and almost alien they seemed.

Bryn Athyn by The Coffinstuffers

Liane Chan

Some of the backing instruments sound a little too loud during the intro, but aside from that, the song is interesting and sort of unusual. It structurally sounds different from a lot of songs, though that could be more because of the vocals and use of synth sounds. This track does make me want to hear more!

This track has a very otherworldly quality and while very electronic and synth-sounding, definitely flows very naturally and goes well with the video - which is very cool also. Well done track and video - it does a great job of making you feel like you're entering new and unusual worlds.

Both songs have a very quaint folksy feel to them, and remind me a little of Belle & Sebastian and similar indie pop bands (especially the first song). The instruments blend well together and the songs are very distinctive sounding. The lyrics seem to tell some interesting stories, which also helps these songs seem more interesting. The more I listen to these songs, the more I like them - so I think they could definitely be popular with college rock/indie pop fans.

Great song and video, starts off well with a nice blend of instruments and the vocals mix well with them. The video is very colorful and keeps you watching without distracting too much from the song. I enjoyed the sound and lyrics of the song, I'd love to hear more!

The Claw by Chasbo Zelena

Liane Chan

I think I like this song more when I don't watch the video, which is kind of silly and seems more like a home movie. It's not really what I'd usually listen to, but it's kind of catchy and fun. 

12/8 12/8 submitted media.

Liane Chan

I enjoyed it a lot, the intro is very different from the rest of the song which isn't a bad thing. I find the progression to be very interesting and gradual. I'd describe the sound as indie synth pop, which is probably one of my favorites. It reminds me of bands like the Legends from Sweden and similar artists on Labrador Records, which might be a good place to start asking about labels. I found the production to be pretty good, I don't really any suggestions on changing it. Thanks for sharing with me, I will definitely continue listening!

Whirl Music by Jasper X

Liane Chan

I like this song's overall sound and the lyrics are interesting. Vocals go well with the instrumentation, the song has slightly sad contemplative sound despite being slightly upbeat. It's a short sweet song that leaves you wanting more.

Calling Me by Midnight Mystery Club

Liane Chan

I found myself wanting to listen to it more each time. Catchy and probably fun to dance to, I think it could be a hit. Sounds very radio friendly too. Great track!

Butterfly (Music Video) by David Rosen

Liane Chan

Interesting video that for some reason reminded me of Scientology ads, but also maybe Tron. The music wasn't bad, but the track was very brief and ended rather abruptly. Appropriate for the digital age, it seems to symbolize some sort of fusion.

Shiva by Elay Arson

Liane Chan

Dark and heavy sounding, I liked it for the most part considering it's not a style of music I usually like. The industrial sounding opening is an interesting contrast to the vocal like synth and drum sounds alternating with the heavier parts and overall provides a menacingly dark sounding atmosphere. 

Qyko submitted media.

Under My Skin by Qÿko

Liane Chan

A little harsh in some parts, but the breaks are nice and keep the track from being too repetitive. Instrumentation and opening are pretty good, nice beat throughout.

KNOWLEDG3 by MiDMaC

Liane Chan

Hard to tell if this is a whole track by the length of it, but it seems to have a kind of mystical sounding background music (and vocals) with a trance-like rap that ends abruptly. Maybe the vocals are not clear since I had some trouble making out the words after multiple listens.  Overall, not bad - I think it just ends too suddenly. 

Qyko submitted media.

Liane Chan

This is a good motivational song, I like the mix of instruments and the gradual speed increase of beats as it moves on. Synths are always good and this one uses them well. I don't usually like long songs, but I actually think this is one that I'd want to hear more of. It has a lot going for it.

I Don't Care by marijuanal

Liane Chan

Kind of long for a punk song, but I enjoyed most of it. There was kind of an unexpected break which came out of nowhere, not sure how necessary it is. Overall, well done and aside from the length and break, I wouldn't change a thing!

Oskar Barczak submitted media.

Gone by Stohou

Liane Chan

There's some interesting parts of this track, some of the instrumental breaks and vocal sounds are really nice - though it does overall lend more to being background music. It is very relaxing and sensual sounding, reminds me of Chillout Electronica compilations. It would probably fit in to a soundtrack well.

My Theory by GENTLEMAN BRAWLERS

Liane Chan

It has an interesting backbeat, though it doesn't quite mix well with the vocals. It's a very downtempo sounding during the majority track, so maybe it isn't focused on vocals. I like the instrumental break at the 3 minute mark, though it does kind of come out of nowhere.

Party Hard by marijuanal

Liane Chan

Very short, but sweet. Kind of want to hear more since it seems to get better as it goes on. I think the intro was louder than the rest of the bridge/chorus.

Zero Gravity by Martin Tillman

Liane Chan

A really beautiful and moving composition. I wouldn't change a thing. Reading the story behind it makes it even better, I can't really add much other than it seems to accomplish its goal of encouraging those who need it to battle their obstacles. Excellent work!

Strange Dayz Btech Lounge Jazz Mix Preview by vocals written and sung by Garnet Jade. Music by Brian Nance

Liane Chan

Nice sound overall, sounds like some cool chillout music. Gives the feel of a late night lounge bar.

Courtney Brough submitted media.

Liane Chan

For some reason, this song seems very familiar. It's very dreamlike and escapist in sound. Eventually it did end up sounding more like background music, but I think it's still appealing in that way. It gives the feeling of being on some sort of island getaway, though it lyrically seems to be about feeling at home with a loved one. Very nice vocals too!

Josh Hamill submitted media.

Underground by The Interstellar Vessel

Liane Chan

This song has kind of a raw psych rock sound that  sounds like it's from a different time. I like the very distinct electronic sounds that remind me of old space shows from the 60's. The more I listen to it, the more I like it!

Bigfoot Woman by Bigfoot Woman

Liane Chan

Parts of it were good (guitars and vocals), but the song was weak and the lyrics didn't make much sense. It had kind of a cool bluesy folk sound, but the lyrics could be better.

Alison by memoryfield (featuring Iris)

Liane Chan

I kind of like this cover more than the original song, though I don't really care much for the original. The video is sort of kitschy and cheesy, though sort of fitting for the track. The brass instruments were a nice addition. I think the old 70's style costumes and decor were probably the most amusing thing about this video.   

morland gryder submitted media.

Liane Chan

This song has a nice uplifting quality to it, slightly folky vocals and pleasant sounding arrangement. The video has a carefree feeling and matches the song well. It is a peaceful and relaxing sound.

Jason Kendall by Make Big Plans

Liane Chan

It's a sweet track, dreamlike opening instrumentally - the beat is very bouncy and upbeat. Vocals and lyrics are nice too, overall a very pleasant sound. It sounds like it could be good in commercials. 

Liz Larin submitted media.

Liane Chan

It's a very strong track with an uplifting sound. The visuals that accompany the song are a good match to it. The vocals and lyrics are very powerful and it has a pretty nice beat once it builds up to the main verse of the song. It would be great on a soundtrack.

Fall For You (Again) by The Late Innings

Liane Chan

This has a very warm, familiar post punk sound with the synths and instrumentation, lyrics, and vocals. This track has a slower beat and pace throughout, which seems to keep it from sounding too tied to any specific time. It reminds me of some new wave era bands (one I was just listening to called The Wild Swans). There are probably others, but that's the one that first came to mind. Anyways, I really like the song and look forward to hearing more!

Good Feeling by Benjimanji

Liane Chan

An upbeat happy tune, I like the keyboard fills and swinging beat. It's got a fun indie pop sound that gives an almost Spring Break party feel. Probably would work well at a beach party.

The Only Girl You Know by Goodnight

Liane Chan

Interesting use of different instruments, it has a very worldly sound that could be from many places without sounding too much like a specific one. The different vocals are a nice contrast. The video itself has some jarring imagery, though overall has a vintage feel that is strangely familiar.

Black Water by Lucien Dante

Liane Chan

I like the wide dynamic range of this song, the instrumentation and vocals are a nice mix. I could see it being used on a soundtrack for something. 

Andres Aloi submitted media.

Liane Chan

I like the song itself and the lyrics, though I think the opening is very different from what the song ends up sounding like. It actually kind of reminds me of a lot of music from the modern rock songs of the 90's. The video is interesting, it reminds me of early computer animation. It's kind of retro and modern all at once.

I Choose Love by Mego

Liane Chan

Great track, musically and lyrically. I love the synths and beats. Consider me a new fan. Well done!

Until We Rest by Sleep Status

Liane Chan

The buildup at the start to the instruments seems a little too long. The music itself is good, though slightly overpowered by the vocals. The song does have a nice dark, slightly sinister sound. 

Sleep Status submitted media.

See by Sleep Status

Liane Chan

Overall, a good song though there is something off putting about the intro, maybe a little out of tune. I liked the instrumentation and the music itself.

Rocket League Theme Song "Firework" by Hollywood Principle

Liane Chan

A little pop, R&B, and dance music in a 60 second sample - a nice taste, I'd love to hear more! It reminds me of some 80's/90's pop hits, so it might appeal to that generation.

David Cox submitted media.

Liane Chan

This is a really high energy track and well done video. Exciting sound with a lot of momentum, seems like it would be a real crowd pleaser. It's good mix of rock with big band sound, I'd love to hear more!

Her and the Furl by Lemac

Liane Chan

I love the lo-fi vocals and loungey beats, it's a really great track. Makes me feel like I'm floating, which is always nice. It's a great mix of dreamy trip hop. I hope to hear more from you!

Solo Mission to Sol by Voidvast

Liane Chan

It's nice background music, sort of down beat and electronic. It gives the feeling of being in space. Reminds me of the music used in a game called PixelJunk Shooter.

Mona and her Alpaca by Eve's Twin Lover

Liane Chan

Great pop song, makes nostalgic of the 90's for some reason. After several listens, I still want to keep hearing it. I think it would be great for college radio since it does have kind of cool indie feel to it.

I'M GONNA CHANGE ONE DAY by HOWLONG WOLF

Liane Chan

This song has an interesting sound, kind of downbeat - sort of like The Police's "Walking on the Moon." Seems a little sad at times, but interesting to listen to.

I Want To Know by Robot Garden

Liane Chan

The song was good and the video was funny and engaging. I liked the comic book elements and funny hashtags and emoji. Definitely made for the modern user of technology. It sounds very radio friendly too. I hope it gets played!

Fountain Of Youth by Robot Garden

Liane Chan

Sounds a little new wave, but starts off like a bedroom recording. Aside from that, I liked it. The song itself is very catchy and the lyrics are sweet.

Seeing What's Next (Preview) by Hollywood Principle

Liane Chan

Short snippet (or song), but I liked it. The vocals and music blend well together and it's got a cool sound. I hope to hear more!
