Ellie Goulding Alt-J Cover (Song of the week!)

28 May

This past issue we featured a blogger who talked about her experience taking her young son to an Alt-J show in New York City. Ever since featuring the article, I have been OBSESSED with Alt-J. Literally it’s just been on repeat.

An interesting choice for Ellie Goulding to cover but it is down right sexy. The sax breakdown mid song has landed this our song of the week. Image


We know you know… where the music is!

14 May

We love stories that start off, “So I found this band…”

We want to know how you discover music! Through a blog? On the radio? Your super hipster musician neighbor you happen to catch in the elevator every so often? 

We love opener bands at shows. They’re similar enough to the band you’re there to see but just different enough to catch your attention. (Plus, they’re usually the life of the party!) One time we found ourselves sitting behind the merch table with a band we didn’t even know. Everybody thought we were the girlfriends. Super entertaining and they were a really awesome band! 

What’s your unusual music discovery story?!

The White Buffalo

Hey Fans check out this great find that our new favorite blogger shared!

BB Batez


I find my self sifting through countless rock bands, since that is where my truest hunger is usually fulfilled. Every now and then, I run into an R&B, Rap, and even a country artist who catches my ear as something much more than ordinary.  The White Buffalo are not ordinary.

The White Buffalo grabbed my heartstrings when I first listened to “Wish it Were True.” I shared it with my wife and she couldn’t stop the tears as they dropped to the floor.  I couldn’t help but think this dude is the long lost brother of Eddie Vedder (not a bad thing) performing this song, but in other songs he pulled my memory strings toward some old time, country, male artist greats. Now this band has gained some popularity due to some performances for Sons of Anarchy, which by the way is one of my favorite shows on Television. You…

And his name is Kevin Healey. He has literally done everything in the music business and has given us so much advice as we embarked on the adventure that has become Unsung Mag.

He recently released this song and we love love it!

Interviews with Indie musicians


Jenavive is a self-titled Canadian indie rock band from Calgary, Alberta in Canada that formed in 2010. Their wide background of musical tastes has influenced their live and studio sound. Their signature style is sweet yet powerful vocals over a backdrop of genre-blending, pop culture inspired indie rock.

The group consists of:

Jenavive Smith– Vocals & keyboard
Brett Elliot– Bass
Reggie Smith– Guitar
Anthony Speelman– Drums

Jenavive kindly answered my questions and hopefully you learn a little about this wonderful Canadian band.

What got you into being a musician?
I’ve been playing piano my whole life. My parents really encouraged me to learn an instrument and I kept at it. Now I can teach piano and a couple other instruments. I always wanted to sing when I was younger but it took a while to get the nerve to do it.

How long have been a musician?

Looking past the doldrums of Winter 2013 to a better Spring and Record Store Day 2013 which this year will be Saturday April  20th.

I think it’s just the best that Jack White is voted Record Store Day Ambassador 2013. He always supports this event and I have purchased several of his exclusive Record Store Day collectibles the past few Record Store Days.

Jack you are the man! Here is what Jack White has to say officially about Record Store Day…

Years ago someone told me that 1,200 high school kids were given a survey. A question was posed to them: Have you ever been to a stand-alone record shop? The number of kids that answered “yes” was… zero.

Zero? How could that be possible? Then I got realistic and thought to myself, “Can you blame them?” How can record shops (or any shop for that matter) compete with Netflix, TiVo…

Something a little dreamy for Valentine’s Day

Mikky Ekko is getting a lot of recognition working with Rihanna recently… but honestly, it’s this song that put him on the map for us.

He’s like John Mayer meets Johnny Depp. Kind of mysterious and super sexy and a killer voice.

You’re welcome 😉

So… this is perfect!

Let's Blow this Joint

I’ve been looking at these love song playlists for years now. There are some pretty okay songs amongst these lists, but in general it’s the same repertoire of “The Smiths” ballads, of course a Brighteyes song or equally somber sounding male whiner, and then there’s that one Ben Folds song that could easily be mistaken for pedophilia at one point. I’d rather listen to the love songs that reflect what I believe true love is, that intensely, beautiful, somewhat silly, and elating feeling. These are the styles of love songs and ballads that I have compiled. Along with trying to find songs that matched my sentiments, I found that I was drawn toward that type of songs that described a sort of nostalgic and comfortable love. That is why some of these songs favor the imagery of home, because calling something home is the ultimate settlement of love. When you find that…
