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.

We kicked it off with singer/songwriter Valerie June, who is originally from Memphis.  We featured her track Workin' Woman Blues.  The track has an upbeat American vibe with little bit of funk.  Her forthcoming album is being produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys. Check out the video for the tune here.

Next, the band Pulp returns with a track called " After You" produced by James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem.  The track was actually recorded a few months ago, but recently released on the internet. 

England has been on a roll with roster of amazing artists like Michael Kiwanuka and Lianne La Havas.  This next artist is no different.  His name is Jacob Banks, and you should definitely keep your eye on him.  We played his track "Kids On The Corner." 

Finally, if you like Allen Stone, you will like our last artist by the name of James Bay. Bay is singer/songwriter from England with amazing hair, but an outstanding voice.  We featured the song "When Were On Fire."
