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.
This week we featured the music blog Indie Shuffle based out of San Francisco. We pick four tracks from this blog. We kicked it off with Internet sensation Lana Del Rey, who recently signed to Interscope records. We played the older song "Diet Mtn Dew." Chicago's YAWN was next with their song "YumYum," which kind of reminds me of cross between Animal Collective and Vampire Weekend. The track came from their album Open Season, which is available now. Then we had a remix of Little Dragon's "Little Man" produced by Benji Boko. Finally, the LA duo The Peach Kings with their new single "Thieves and Kings."
