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.”

Listen to “Shifter” on Earbits Radio

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.

AG has built a career on taking risks. And, she’s at it again!

On October 9th, the anniversary of John Lennon’s birth, AG will release “The Beatles” – her cutting edge EP, featuring six Beatles songs redone with her own personal touch. And, this week, we are lucky enough to have a fantastic track from it, exclusively on Earbits!

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.

Originally from Covington, Kentucky, Jesse Thomas packed up and headed west to Los Angeles in 2008. She had little more than her car and a dream…

To become an actress.

Fast-forward to 2012, and Jesse is gearing up for the Valentine’s Day release of her debut full-length album on Red Parade Music, ‘War Dancer’. She has been featured in the “New and Noteworthy” section, as well as the “Indie Spotlight” on iTunes. “You I Want”, off of her Hazel EP, was featured by Starbuck’s as their “Pick of the Week”, both nationally as well as in Canada. She had another song used on Teen Nick’s “Degrassi”, and recently opened for John Mayer (and as a result, made a video about having his baby).

Mark Cote's 'Fun House of Your Mind'One of the common criticisms of digital music is that it lacks the artwork and, of course, tangibility found on cassettes, vinyl records and CDs, among other forms of music distribution.  It’s a treat, then, when an artist takes the time to craft a visually appealing album.

That’s exactly what singer/songwriter Mark Cote has done with his new album, entitled Funhouse Of Your Mind.  The disc comes enclosed in a visually appealing case, featuring a design style similar to that found on the artist’s website.  The intriguing design adds to Cote’s concept behind the album, which deals with the various emotions contained within the complex “funhouse” of the mind.

Coming up, we’ll be featuring the soulful tunes of Buckman Coe on earbits. Buckman is a talented songwriter and guitarist living in Canada. His influences include Ben Harper, Jeff Buckley, Neil Young, Bob Marley and countless others. The playful vocals on Jokers Always Crush reminds me of Red Hot Chili Peppers a bit, except (and don’t kill me for saying it) Coe’s vocals are stronger than Kiedis’s.

Check out Buckman’s newest video, Not So Far Fetched on YouTube.
