Lots of songs never make it to the radio that are getting lots of attention online. Live tracks, sanctioned and unsanctioned remixes, mash-ups, overlooked gems by unsigned artists. Every week on “Are You Feeling This,” we invite you to hear what the buzz is all about. You tell us what you think. Vote in the Are You Feeling This poll, and leave a comment.
“Are You Feeling This” is sponsored by UniFi Records.
First up is the song "All Yr Songs" from Toronto musician Diamond Rings.
Diamond Rings is an emotional outlet for Toronto based artist and musician John O. His lyrically evocative pop songs are composed with a stolen MIDI keyboard, borrowed laptop, and second hand guitar.
Next is the return of Sweden's Lykke Li and her new single "Get Some" from her forthcoming album. You can download it for free from an earlier post.
From Michigan is producer Thomas Meluch aka Benoit Pioulard and his song "A Coin On The Tongue"
Finally we have the San Diego band TV Girl and their song "You Want It", which uses a sample of Todd Rundgren's "Hello It's Me." You can download their EP for free from their bandcamp page.
