Starbenders’ is wanting everyone to enjoy their latest single “Julian”. This is glam rock at it’s finest. This was a fun listen. The music gets into you and for some reason, at least for me, I couldn’t help but bob my head and have a grin on my face. The vocals aren’t lost in the instruments and everything just fits together perfectly on this single. Can’t wait to check out more of their music. So get into Starbenders’ fun single “Julian through SoundCloud – Richard:

Ascending Dawn hits it out of the park again with “Inside the Silence”. This single infuses that hard rockin’ beat again for us heavy metal/hard rock lovers. Marlain’s vocals give the single a clear tone that resonates through the instrumentals to ease some of the harshness that sometimes comes across in this type of music. I love this blending and can’t wait to hear more. The band is wanting you to experience their music in preparation for the Coalesce LP release on December 1. So until then Ascending Dawn wants you to rock with them with their single “Inside the Silence” through their YouTube – Richard:
Ben and Andy give us an acoustical version of Queen’s single “Save Me”. This is a very clean and crisp rendition of the single. The piano is beautifully done with the vocals hitting the mark on everything. Ben and Andy’s acoustical version isn’t as bombastic as Queen’s, but it is just as powerful. The video is just a studio type video, but the star of the video is the song. Take a moment and enjoy Ben and Andy’s “Save Me” Queen cover through their YouTube channel – Richard:

Laure Z is giving us a bright shining song with her single “I Will Follow You”. With the whistling and ukulele this song has a light airy feel to it. The second and third verse goes into a more rounded sound with more instruments coming in giving more of a pop sound. But it is definitely that first and fourth verse that gives one that folk springy sound that is fun to hear during a more dreary time of year with our weather. “I Will Follow You” comes from Laure Z’s EP Girls Don’t Wait, which will be available on December 1. Until then enjoy Laure Z’s springy single “I Will Follow You” through SoundCloud – Richard:

Common Deer is sharing with our listeners again. This time it is for their music video for their single “Glass”. The single keeps with their folk/pop feel that I enjoy. “Glass” is a slower contemplative song that flows around you. The music doesn’t make any hard waves, but is soothing even though it talks about relationships and how there can be waves. The music video is really nicely done and shows all the group as they perform. Take a contemplative breath and enjoy Common Deer’s music video for “Glass” through their The Strombo Show’s YouTube channel – Richard:
“The Deep End” takes one on a journey like all relationships are. Oparu gives us a 1990’s style single with the powerful instrumentals and electronic sound. When she goes into the chorus of the single the music swells up over her sound as she is singing “deep end”. For this song I believe that might be intentional, because in the deep end you tend to struggle as the water is washing over you, very nice symbolism. The lyric video takes you on a journey as well through waterways and city scapes. All around a very nice sound. Here’s Oparu’s lyric video for “The Deep End” through her YouTube channel – Richard:
