I found out about Heypenny from a random site when I was trying to watch a tv show online, their song, Cop Car was playing on an ad. I checked them out and when I found out about their music I automatically loved it and bought everything. Their music is so catchy and yet so indie at the same time. The melodies and the vocals are a kind of style that's for the indie music scene. They formed in Fayette, making music since 2003, releasing their first album, Use These Spoons in 2005. They released their second album in February 2011, and have recieved some recognition for the songs, "Parade" and "Cop Car".
Nonetheless the songs of this band is amazing and you should check them out.

ArtistoftheWeek:Vanessa Carlton8/22/11-8/29/11

Vanessa Carlton has been a favorite of mine since her hit, "A Thousand Miles" in 2002. Her music has hit me ever since. Through the years fans have noticed that she has grown into her own identity as a singer/songwriter. Moving from A&R records, and releasing her albums at a good regular speed, once every three years. She's been showing off her creative styles in her third album, Heroes and Thieves and have really stepped away from the piano and into the folk sounds into her recent album, Rabbits On the Run.
Vanessa Carlton may have been known for her hit, but since then she has grown out of that song into a brand new world of music. You can see how she abandons the song in the beginning of the music video, "Nolita Fairytale". Her recent single, "Carousel", still keeps the sound of Carlton, with a twist of a new sound. Reminiscent of adventure and folklore, in the song. Carousel is kind of a sampler of what is in the album, Rabbits On The Run.
Looking at all that Carlton has done with her music and in life, I see this woman becoming a cult-classic musician.
Winning a certain audience of people with her music now, until the day she retires. She has gotten what she wanted, loyal and devoted fans.
Vanessa Carlton is a musician beyond her one-hit, beyond her record label. She is a true singer/songwriter that is becoming more of herself every single day.

Gomez is an English indie rock band, best know for their album, How We Operate and being covered on Grey's Anatomy. They have been featured on many television shows in the past three years since their most famous song, "How We Operate," came over to the US. They're albums have been recognized for critical acclaim and indie fans all over the earth. Hitting the indie scene with their song, "Notice," that song that gives everyone that feeling they had when someone they liked didn't notice them. As for their sound it has a hint of Americana in it. So songs sound a little country, with a twang and a fiddle in the background. Aside from all of this, Gomez is a great band and you should check them out. Especially when school's coming around.

ArtistoftheWeek:Hannah Georgas8/8/11-8/15/11

Hannah Georgas is a Canadian singer/songwriter with a constant drive for music. If it's either listening to all sorts of music to writing all kinds of music, this artist has a varied sense of musical love. (I think that Georgas might have a case of "Pop ears," loving any type of music as long as it has catchy hook/relatable lyrics). This musician is so cool and outgoing, especially in her music.
From her debut release, The Beat Stuff EP, there are songs that are personal and at times a little funny. The first song, "The Beat Stuff," is a way to express her reason of why she chose music to do and to become a music. The addiction and need for music in her life gave her to motivation to do it. Which is a really impressive step into her career. Another song called, "Mama's Boy", is a lyrically comedic song about her break up from a pathetic jerk.
Her debut album, This Is Good, starts off with a great song for the morning called, "Chit Chat". This song is perfect to listen to for going back to school. The end of summer is coming so have this song on to help to ease into the start of that droning year of school. Another song for those droning school days is, "Bang Bang You're Dead," this song is perfect for if someone is talking bad about you. It's all said in the lyrics, how it's done, the song makes you just want to laugh about it all.All in All, Hannah Georgas is a great musician to have for your music collection, especially if you love artists like, Alanis Morrissette, Jenny Owen Youngs Lelia Broussard, and any other female singer/songwriter out there.

ArtistoftheWeek:EMI MARIA8/1/11-8/8/11

EMI Maria, is like a breath of fresh air when you're a little tired of Japanese pop and you want some R&B. This musician has an outstanding style of soul. Mixing her style with the Japanese language, keeping the music fresh one album at a time. The music is so similar yet so varied that it makes you wonder, why would I ever want to check out any other JR&B artist? From EMI Maria's, "Mr. Alien," to "Focus On Me," her songs are so catchy and seductive, making your body sway back and forth with the beat while still having a bounce in your step.
If you haven't heard of her you need to check her out, she's a talent you shouldn't miss.
