Kate Earl reveals herself with Downtown Records & “Stronger”

For all my Marie Digby or Rachael Yamagata fans, Kate Earl will rock your socks off! This L.A. based artist is new on the scene with her alternative pop rock vibe. She perfectly captures the laid back California essence and incorporates it into her music style. After signing with Downtown Records, she released her new album “Stronger” in November 2012 and is conducting a nationwide tour! As I am a fan of her type of music genre, I decided to check this new artists’ album out! When first hearing her song “Melody”, I felt like it was going to be a similar rendition to Yael Naim “New Song”. Both songs start off with a piano intro and soft melodies and vocals. However, Kate definitely makes her voice more distinct and carries on the song to her own flow. Her tone and pitch just seem to flow with the melody and it gives her listeners a carefree, relaxing, yet preppy vibe! Kate shows her love for music through her songs and lets her emotions be revealed. You can tell that the artist connects with her music, sometimes the only things in life she needs are her “melodies”.

What If I Was Nothing- All That Remains

If you’re feeling in a bit of a hardcore mood, this song will definitely make you want to rock out! I always feel that rock music is always too hardcore for me, but this song killed it with its slow intro that slowly fades into All That Remains signature beat!

Some New Electro to warm our Bass!

I have been listening to Dada Life for years now! Ever since “Happy Violence”, I have been hooked on this Swedish duo! Dada Life is continuously rising to fame and getting more and more popular with their second hit “Kick Out the Epic Motherf***er”! After seeing them live at the Electric Daisy Carnival in Vegas this past June, I had grown to love them even more. Not only are their songs and remixes sick, they also have the best stage presence. The amount of energy along with their champagne popping and inflatable bananas makes their listeners feel compelled to love them! No lie, they can pump up a crowd with the beats of their songs.

Some more on their crazy intense outlooks on life, #therulesofdada:

  • Never bring your brain to a rave.
  • Doing the “airpiano” on stage while looking up in the air? Never. The “heart sign” with both your hands? F**K NO.
  • Tickle-punch-tickle-combo. Happy Violence!
  • Cheating is winning.
  • If you’re stuck, there’s only one solution: go harder.
  • If you only need one word to describe a song in the studio…then it’s done!
  • No bananas on the rider? Then we do our two hour deep/tech house set. Everything under 118 BPM.
  • PLUR = Potassium Lust Unity Rage
  • Arriving beautiful – leaving ugly.
  • Beautiful music = boring music. At least today.
  • Never BBQ before a gig.
  • If you don’t want to get wet, you don’t want to have fun.
  • Bass don’t cry.
  • Changing underwear at the club is cheating. Even for the members of Dada Life.
  • Never bring your brain into the club.
  • Art should be loud as fuck.
  • Always kick out the epic motherfucker. Always.
  • Everything is free.

If this doesn’t convince you just check out one of their songs and don’t forget to download their new album “The Rules of Dada” on iTunes http://bit.ly/SL2LSA!
