Listen To This: Hold On Tight!

Filed under: AnglophiliaListen To This

The British do folk soooo well!

If you like Mumford & Sons or Ed Sheeran, then you will equally love Passenger.

His voice is so special! And his song Let Her Go is so earnest and endearing and excellent! We think it could be a big hit in America!

Check it out above!

Listen To This: It's YOU!

Filed under: LatinoliciousListen To This

When you hear "Latin pop", one usually thinks Thalia, Paulina Rubio or the likes. However, Carla Morrison is making Latin pop that transcends the genre and uplifts it!

She's infusing a real singer/songwriter vibe to Latin pop and making it super COOL!

Plus, she's a gay ally and made an adorable pro same sex marriage music video for Eres Tú, a song of hers we are obsessed with!

Check out the awesomeness above!

We asked you all to send us your best takes on Kacey Musgraves' masterpiece of a country song Merry Go Round, and you sent in some beautiful renditions!

THANK YOU to everyone who entered! Perez personally watched each and everyone! We can't wait to keep this up next year!!!!

Congratulations to our winner All About Maggie, who took out the alterna in Kacey's original and went super country fabulous with her take! Think Reba and Wynonna!

Check out the awesomeness above!

By contrast, Flatiron Junction, our wonderful second place winners, strip the song down and turn it into a pretty pretty pretty duet!

Listen To This: The A Team!

Filed under: AnglophiliaListen To This

She's like the female Ed Sheeran!

Kal Lavelle reminds us of our cherished ginger god - and that is a GREAT THING!

She is part of this great movement of British folk and singer/songwriter artists, like Laura Marling, whom she also reminds us of.

Lavelle's song The Ocean is so exquisitely beautiful and raw.

Just her voice and her acoustic guitar!

Simple and stunning!

Melodic!

And those lyrics!!!! It's as if she's talking directly to you!

Check out The Ocean (above)!
