February 10th, 2016 / Comments Off on New single from Some Gifts – All Washed Up / by Mog/
Some Gifts is a three-piece from Los Angeles, making hook-y, energetic art-rock with alternative and punk influences. This is the first single off their upcoming 11-song debut album, Win Instantly, out in March.
The band formed in 2013 when singer/guitarist Vic Lazar (formerly of Buffalo, NY bands Patrons of Sweet and Knife Crazy) began jamming with drummer Steve Aguilera, who then recruited longtime friend and fellow musician Mike Jung for bass duty.
Some Gifts quickly began playing shows in Los Angeles and Orange County, and has since released two digital EPs: the debut All These Ghosts, and the follow-up EP System Failure.
The band has been featured on Thought Catalog as one of ‘6 Awesome Bands You Need to Know Now’, was an ‘Artist of the Month’ nominee in The Deli music magazine, and has been covered on music blogs including Buzzbands.la and Obscure Sound.

February 10th, 2016 / Comments Off on New track from Orouni – The Peanut Specialist / by Mog/
The Peanut Specialist is from the Paris-based songwriter/producer Orouni and is an English pop piece inspired by the spirit of Motown girls’ bands. The story recounts the construction of a (real) safe located in Norway that contains seeds from around the world (in the case of an urgent need to reseed a country ravaged by war, a typhoon, or even the apocalypse).
Orouni conscientiously stacked layers of sounds together until the instruments were scrambled into one, resting onto a very solid yet unpredictable pillar of rhythm (with Steffen Charron on bass and Dimitri Dedonder on drums). He decided to replace his own voice with the female tones of Amélie and Clémentine (Water Babies), Dorothée Hannequin (The Rodeo) and Barbara Silverstone.
