The Boxer Rebellion is a band that has been around for quite some time now without ever really achieving the large recognition one would expect from such a talented group. They formed in 2001 in the United Kingdom and very much so have the sound a band born of the ColdPlay, Radiohead, Oasis era would. However this is not a bad thing as they are often times a little slower and more mellow than there more pop friendly counter parts and peers. This song diamonds is a song that I keep listening to over and over, and is the first single from their new upcoming album. The song seems to hit a rather raw emotional nerve in a great way.
This song is the first single from Galantis, a side project created by Miike Snow cofounder Christian Karlsson. Christian is a very accomplished producer having worked on a wide range of artists from Britney Spears, Depeche Mode, Kelis, Madonna and many more. His expertise shines thru on this song as it is expertly paced and has a hypnotic beat. I find the vocals to be very captivating and the overall tone of the song to be very upbeat. Its one of those songs that gets stuck in your head all day and your day is better for it.
Brooke Fraser is already very popular and has hit #1 and #3 in music charts consistently in Australia and New Zealand. Now after signing with Sony she’s running around the world to share her new intimate soul sharing album Flags which was released in October 2010.
This song of hers continues to rise up from small beginnings into something great and powerful. It inspires, instills wonder in our minds, and stirs passion in our hearts. A love song asking, what makes me love you like I do? It must be something in the water she says, pointing to that deep mysterious and unexplainable feeling we have when we become deeply moved and impassioned by someone who has taken our heart. I can keep listening to this song again and again, and the music video artfully jumping from one life-style to another paints stories that we can relate to of love found and beauty that it brings.
After gathering together as the result of hearing 4 loves songs written by the now frontman Michael Angelakos, Passion Pit took form and released their debut EP “Chunk of Change” in 2008. However their first full length album Manners was released in 2009. You probably already know these guys very well already or have never heard of them. I particularly liked this song of theirs because of the happy teenage sounding PS22 chorus background vocals.
At first you might find the lead vocalist’s voice a little high pitched or strange, but it catches on quick and the beat is too easy to love. Quite a few of their songs have already been featured in movies and TV shows, but I still think a lot of people don’t know about them. I hope to hear more from these guys soon.

I happened to see a post on a friends Facebook page about this new artist so I decided to check him out. I instantly fell in love with this song he has “Free” on his ep so naturally I wanted to find more music from this guy. Once I found a few videos I became a fan & thought others should know about this guy. It’s rare to find artist these days who actually have talent (well not mainstream anyway). This guy Aarron Tyson is somewhat amazing. He plays the guitar, drums and the keys while also being the Songwriter and from what I’ve learned the Producer of his own music. I’d call him a Pop Music Superstar in the making, a breathe of fresh air musically and even has a image that’s not bad on the eyes.in fact goood. I thought he deserved “a song of the day” or Artist of the next decade request so I wanted to share his music. Hope you enjoy as much as I do.
“Get your Filthy Dukes off me!”, she cried before screaming and dashing out of the dark pulsing London nightclub. Funny scene huh, happens ALL THE TIME!
What’s with all the electronic music on the Song of the Day blog? This doesn’t sound like indie music, it’s like I’m in a Nintendo game from the 80’s or something? Which makes me wonder, did they have Nintendo in England in 1985 too? The guys from Filthy Dukes probably did, damn dirty remixers.
