We are lucky to be streaming Astronauts, etc. on Earbits, but if the man behind the music, Anthony Ferraro, was able to put his two decades of study to use, we’d be discussing a new classical arrangement. That’s right, Classical music was his chosen path at one time. An unfortunate situation forced him to re-evaluate his musical future, and here we are…

Astronauts, etc. was born.

A tight, laid-back, well-arranged groove always seems to find itself at the center of an Astronauts, etc. track. Intricate alternative R&B and Soul that you can dance to. Word of advice: get ready to click the ‘Favorite’ button when you listen on Earbits – you’re going to want to hear Astronauts, etc. again.

Three Of Swords, by Mimi, an eclectic Singer-Songwriter from Toronto, begins with a song called “Goodbye Heartbeat.”  The track contains soft-spoken, airy vocals with varying rhythms and melodies over a frantically pulsating bass line.  An acoustic guitar plucks along steadily.  The song has a dreamy, ethereal quality that’s consistent throughout it’s nearly 4-minute run-time.

That pleasant tone is maintained throughout the rest of the album, although the ways in which Mimi delivers her songs greatly vary in style and arrangement.  The second track on the album, for instance, is rife with Latin flair— propelled by a cornet part played by Patric McGroarty and spot-on use of Spanish-language vocals.  The song is entitled “Porque Te Vas,” and it’s a cover of José Luis Perales’ 1972 song of the same name (originally performed by Jeanette).

Never once have I uttered the words “Funky fresh,” but with Wooster‘s album, If All The Dew Were Diamonds, it’s the only phrase that comes to mind, immediately describing the music. The album is definitely a genre bender and a great example of a band accurately throwing in hints of multiple styles, while never over saturating a particular taste.

As a broad comparison, if you’ve enjoyed Zooey Deschanel’s She & Him musical project, Jenny Mayhem has something suited for you. Perfectly quint at first introduction, Jenny Mayhem’s voice dances around the melody on her new single, “Shifter.”

The song is a mid tempo gem that’s littered with lyrical hints that she’s a big fan of the TV show, Fringe. That, or at least it sparked a thought that resulted in “Shifter” which is a reference to a shape changing person. Regardless of your television habits, the new song is incredibly charming from start to finish, completely unassuming the entire time.

Ray Recordings Sampler One is a collection of Jazz-kissed songs assembled by producer and songwriter, Filippo Gaetani. Gaetani has run Ray Recordings for the last decade, which currently takes shape as a mobile production company more than anything else. 24 tracks on the first sampler, all containing a cohesive elasticity in which they exist. While all songs will have their own fans and are good in their own right, some definitely jump out, deserving recognition more than the others.

I love my job. Not many people can say that. Why do I love it, you ask? I do nothing but listen to Earbits all day, which provides me some serious time to peruse the up and coming music that we are constantly adding. From Metal to Jazz, and everything in between, I am ever-impressed by the catalog that our music department is building. Frankly, it’s getting ridiculous.

What does this mean to you?

From the Beach Boys to the Allman Brothers and the Jackson 5 to the Black Crowes, brothers have been bickering and making phenomenal music since the dawn of rock. More recently bands like Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon and the National have found success because of and despite the unique relationship between brothers. Hoping to follow in this tradition are Dublin brothers, Dermot & Neil Walsh. The Walsh brothers are the sole members of the rock band, The Parlez, and they seem to be poised to follow in the footsteps of their predecessors.
