Another Monday is upon us. If you’re like me, you’re suffering from post Grammy hangover. Now that the best music of 2010 has been showcased, performed, and awarded, where do we go from here? Well, we can start with some new music from bands that you may not be aware of, but deserve some recognition. That’s what New Music Monday is all about. Here’s some great new music to help get you through your week and prepare you for the weekend (a mere 5 days away). Enjoy!
Death Blossoms – Bass Down Low (Kill Kill Metal Remix)
First up is Death Blossoms with their intense remix of Dev’s Bass Down Low. This superb remix adds heavy industrial metal beats to a club hit. The remix adds some life to the song and helps expand the listening audience to more than just club music lovers. Check it out for yourselves.
David Lowery – The Palace Guards
Next up is the title track from David Lowery’s The Palace Guards (available now). This indie singer/songwriter, of Camper Van Beethoven and Cracker fame, has released his own collection of music that never quite fit the mold for either of those bands. The results are stunning, as you can hear in lead single, The Palace Guards. This is a great introduction to David Lowery, and if you love acoustic, indie, modern folk rock, then you will love this song. A free download is available by clicking the link below. Give it a listen or three!
Occult Detective Club – C’mon Levi
Rounding out this version of New Music Monday is the ferocious single, C’mon Levi, by Occult Detective Club. Rife with punk vibes, hard rocking drums, and an upbeat tempo, C’mon Levi is a phenomenal song that will have your feet stomping, fist pumping, and blood flowing fast. It’s a perfect tune to get you going on a Monday morning. You can download the single for free by clicking on the link below.
