Tiny Masters of Today - "Skeletons"
Comprised of siblings Ivan and Ada (aged 13 and 11 respectively) Tiny Masters of Today are a preteen post-punk duo that are already making waves in the UK. Geez man, when I was 13 I was busy dreaming of girls and watching the freaking Facts of Life on TV. These guys are getting played on BBC and making David Bowie say things like "genius."
"Skeletons" is like a punch in the gut with its hard hitting percussion, distorted saw guitar dance-floor beats. If these kids are this good now, just think of what they will unleash once they've hit puberty. Take that, Hanson!
Emilie Mover - "Brand New"
Emilie Mover has a voice like a gypsy sprite looking for love in the Shire. Originally from Canada she now makes her home in New York City. Her music has made appearances in commercials and on the television shows The Ghost Whisperer and Gray's Anatomy. She makes music like a folk dream mixed equally with a fascinated joy of life and an eternal sadness at what it brings.
"Brand New" catches the optimism of a thousand sunny days shining brightly on her back. It will easily be stuck in your head as it is now stuck in mine. Not that I mind, for if a song is going to be stuck in my head, this isn't a bad choice. Not in the least.
