Cobi Mike’s recent decision to leave Gentlemen Hall (Island Records) to release his first solo project arose from his desire to rediscover his voice and share his personal message. As part of the successful Gentlemen Hall, he has shared the stage with such powerhouses as Beyonce, One Republic and Young the Giant. With the help of Grammy Award-winning engineer Tom Weir (Blondie, Willie Nelson) and an all-star cast of musicians, Cobi Mike’s debut single combines beautiful electronic and acoustic elements.
Have a listen below to Walking Through The Fire:
Growing up on the streets of South Central, Los Angeles, Autumn In June’s childhood was saturated by violence, gang culture and a community revere for rap music. Escaping the violence, Autumn In June took a leap of faith and began to experiment with an array of music to which his peers were aggressively opposed. The locals soon gave him the name of Autumn In June as they considered him to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Despite the often-negative criticism he received Autumn In June embraced this title and decided to continue to make the kind of music that he truly loved and to inspire other people to be proud of who they are. Autumn In June is one of the few, if not the first, indie-pop artist to emerge from South Central, Los Angeles.
His debut EP is insanely amazing mixing electronic and hip-hop beats, with soulful pop lyrics. Check out his single "Hey Arnold" here:
Acclaimed indie surf rock, Latin musical collective Salt Petal just released a video for their popular single “Por La Luna” and I am loving it! The band’s exuberant and unique blend of indie rock, cumbia, and South American beats is showcased perfectly by a beautiful montage of imagery by Director Camille Stochitch and cinematographer Ludovia Isidori.
Thanks to Priceonomics and an anonymous source at the booking agency Degy Entertainment, we have a list of the asking prices of hundreds of musical acts, from the ones who are just slightly more successful than a bar band to the the elite few who ask a million dollars just to show up—¦

Orsten – Adagio Sostenuto
Here’s a pretty awesome mix that someone named lytebryte25 on 8tracks.com put together that makes you want to stay in bed and think things over. If you like good music, give this a shot, even though I wouldn’t necessarily be rocking this type of music in my car on a daily basis, I found myself thoroughly engaged in it.
Here’s a pretty freaking awesome video of two 1st graders performing the Foo Fighters’ ‘Everlong’ at the Electric Picknic Festival. Unless you can come up with a video of a dog and cat doing a rendition of Elton John’s “Your Song”, I’m hereby proclaiming this video, The Most Awesome Video Of The Week.
