So, you wanna be famous rock star, huh? Maybe you just want to play in a successful independent band and have a career that pays your rent and covers the monthly cost of that $30,000 student loan. Well, one of the the best arts that you can master in life is the art of “Ear Hustling.”

Spring has sprung and brought along the fantastic Los Angeles based electro-pop duo, Backnbloom and their album, Music for the Modern Monkey.

Backnbloom’s electro-pop is innovative, catchy, spry, loads of fun and total headphone ear candy. It’s amazing to note that so many different sounds can emerge from two mere mortals.

Color Theory is an electronic indie piano pop band comprised of one member: Brian Hazard, from Huntington Beach, California. The Sound is his eighth album, which came out in August 2010. Color Theory’s sound has been likened to The Postal Service, Owl City, and Depeche Mode. In all reality, it sounds like a grown up version of Owl City, and, at times, reminiscent of Mae. I think what I like most about Color Theory is the melody and the layers of electronic harmony built on top of each other. Also, a lot of times electronic bands usually stick to the keyboard instead of the piano, but Hazard incorporates both and it’s a wonderfully pleasant mix.

If you are a true Hip Hop fan, chances are, you know of the legendary NY-based underground rapper, Percee P. Gaining notoriety in the underground scene thanks to years of success and perseverance, as well as legendary battles with Fat Joe, Eminem, and Lord Finesse (among many others), Percee P is one of the innovators and originators of today’s DIY Hip Hop scene. Read a fantastic interview by Substance Abuse’s Eso Tre, and learn a little about the origin of old-school Hip Hop: Underground style!

That’s right folks, wait no more – Earbits merchandise is here!

Some of us love our sleep; others detest the daily necessity of powering off. But either way, most every night, you are lured into a heavy slumber. There are five stages of sleep, all distinctly different sections of a single process. Earbits Radio is here to take you through each stage of that journey.

Stage 1 – Theta Waves

After seeing Foxy Shazam’s music video for “I Like It” off their latest album, The Church of Rock and Roll, I just haven’t been able to get them off my mind, particularly lead singer Eric Sean Nally. He has a voice reminiscent of Freddie Mercury and all the charisma of a rock and roll God. He’s everything rock and roll should be, and he’s every reason why we fell in love with rock music in the 60s. I’m not sure how this band has been able to stay under my radar, because they’ve been around since the early 2000’s and have definitely been noticed by SPIN magazine, Alternative Press, and have been touring with bands like the Strokes and Hole.

The cover for Kev Rowe’s 2010 album ‘Hi Love’ features a picture of the singer/songwriter relaxing alone with nothing but his thoughts on a sunny beach, and that’s exactly how the music makes you feel.  Rowe’s positive, mellow tracks evoke the laid-back simplicity of Rowe’s native South Carolina, but his lyricism is still filled with very human doubts and uncertainties.
