Chloe Bodur’s New Single “Glory”

Chloe Bodur is sharing with our listeners her single “Glory”.  Chloe has a nice alto sound which glides through this Jazz/Soul infused single.  “Glory” starts out with instrumentals until the 30 second mark and then Chloe comes in with the vocals.  Within the instrumentals an electric guitar is used to give this single a little of an electronic sound, but once the vocals hit you know your in for a smooth ride.  Check out Chloe Budor’s single “Glory” through SoundCloud – Richard:

Premiering The Captain’s Son’s Latest Single “Aloha Love”

The listeners of ComicPop Library get an after Christmas present from The Captain’s Son, with the premiere for their single “Aloha Love”!

The group has been hard at work this holiday season putting on the finishing touches of their newest single and our listeners to get the first chance to enjoy it.  Now that “Aloha Love” has been lovingly crafted it is ready to be received by the world.

With The Captain’s Son I get to enjoy several sounds that has influenced them and this one is no different.  “Aloha Love” takes us back in the day again, which I love, and as the single’s title suggests the band pays homage to the Jan & Dean/Beach Boys sound.  One of my first concerts as a teenager that my parents took me to, and this was back in the mid to late 1980’s I’m not quite that old yet, was to a Beach Boys concert.  The Captain’s Son, with their heavy guitar strumming, took me back to that concert experience and when I fell in love with the Beach Sound.

I really enjoy The Captain’s Son and can’t wait to hear what they will gift us with next.  Until then enjoy this late Christmas present, “Aloha Love”, through The Captain’s Son’s SoundCloud page – Richard:

Presley Tennant’s Christmas Single “Santa Tell Me” Cover

I know it is after Christmas, but this came in from Presley Tennant and I wanted to feature it.  This fits in with our last post for our Christmas podcast discussing the manga, Sweet Rein.  Presley covers Ariana Grande’s “Santa Tell Me” to share the Christmas joy with everyone.  Presley gives our listeners a great rendition of this single with a pure voice that shines through.  The music video has a young feel to it that makes it fun to watch.  It’s going to be exciting to see what other presents Presley will give listeners this next year.  So take a moment after your holiday season to remember the weekend with Presley Tennant’s music video, where she covers “Santa Tell Me”, from her YouTube channel – Richard:
