Zoya - "Lunar Eclipsed" (Live video)

If you are into world music, which I am, then you should thoroughly enjoy this song from folk-fusion singer Zoya.

Born in New Delhi and raised in Southern California, Zoya released her first album at age 13 and spent years studying traditional dance with renowned Bollywood choreographer Nakul Dev Mahajan.

Zoya spent the past several years in Boston, working the local music scene and attending classes at Berklee College of Music. She just earned an undergraduate degree in music business so she's a double threat!

Check out the live video for 'Lunar Eclipsed' below.

She is one to watch. Expect big things!

Here is a cover of a Camille song she did.



The Talks

Love Ska? Miss the Specials? Then I've got just the thing for you.


This is infectiously fun!

Now where are my Doc Martens?

Here's the video for 'Don't Look Behind You'.

The album will be out at the end of November!




Figgy - Missing You EP

I've posted about Figgy before but then it was all about his remixes. Now...it's all about the originals!

Check out these sweet deep house tunes.

Turn it up!

So good.




Public School & ALLIE X - Don't Wake Me Up

This is a very gripping single. A very strong and emotional vocal backed solely by a bass. Co-written by Allie X, the track will be on Public Schools debut release, out in December or January.

Simon Shackleton - DISTRIKT Music

I've been a huge fan of Elite force AKA Simon Shackleton and for years he has played epic sets at Burning Man. This year was no exception.

In his own words...

"There is nothing in the world quite like closing a perfect day on the Playa with a Sunset set at DISTRIKT. This year the whole team worked tirelessly to create a brand new stage set, and the view from the booth as the sun set over the Man, casting its orange glow onto the distant mountains, was simply breathtaking. As you dance your way through the crowd at Distrikt, you'll see every single person wearing a beaming smile from ear to ear (and not much else). It's the epitome of love on the dancefloor - everyone is, quite literally, having THE time of their lives."

Turn this up and get ready to dance your ass off for the next 2 hours!

Soft Touch

Morgan Z of Chrome Canyon and Mark Palgy of VHS or Beta have joined forces to generate Soft Touch. Their sound weaves through disco, house, and funk.

Completely retro yet so fresh.


Buy the Real Love single HERE!!



Yellerkin - Tools

Yellerkin is an American indie folk band based in Brooklyn, New York.

Combine sweet melodies and harmonies with cool beats and great music and you've got the ingredients for great band.

Check it!

Here is the trippy video too.

This is one to watch for sure.



I'm a sucker for some electro-pop and PROM fit the bill to a T. This Brooklyn based duo is pumping out sweet tunes and you need to be listening to them NOW.



The Slow Readers Club - Forever In Your Debt (video)

Fans of Interpol with dig this Manchester based indie band.

Smart lyrics and pulsating rhythms drive the songs from start to finish.

Here is an earlier tune, 'Don't Mind'.

They need to release their album sooner than later.

So good.



Little Arrow - Loss Um (Video)


This is a lovely bit of folk rock. Well produced and full of emotion.

Lead singer, William Hughes, describes the album as “concerning the human spirit, the pains and great joys of human relationships as we gain and lose others throughout our life. It also expresses solace, which can be found through immersion into the outside environment. But most importantly it expresses collaboration between five good friends sharing high and lows and dancing in each other’s heads.”

Lots of feels in this one.

Listen for yourself.

Here is a remix of the track by Phinite.

Download it HERE!!!





Baby Taylor - Las Vegas (Video)

Cover photo

Hailing from Scotland, singer-songwriter Baby Taylor mixes her vengeful lyrics with acoustic sounds and the mix is very captivating.

She completed her album 'A Moment of Sympathy for all my Enemies' at the age of 17, which is out now!

Check it out!

Check out another song, 'four hearts'.

Buy the album HERE!!



Sun Gods to Gamma Rays - A Ghost To Find (video)

A Ghost to Find cover art

Sun Gods to Gamma Rays is a dream pop band from Minnesota.

This is the first single from Sun Gods to Gamma Rays' upcoming full length album, "A Ghost to Find,"out in November.

Looking forward to the full release as this is a little bit of awesome.






 John Justise is the driving force behind 'Justisewewant' which he uses to release his avant-garde electronic jazz.

I am not a hundred percent sure where I land on this yet but it's definitely interesting and he's is very talented.

Check it out and decide for yourself.

Download the album HERE!! (name your own price!)



Sunday, October 19, 2014


If you love synth-pop and wish you could be back in the 80's  skating around a roller rink on a Friday night....then I've got the band for you.

I present.... Paperwhite. The brother/sister duo of Katie and Ben Marshall hail from Brooklyn and I can't get enough of their retro sound.

Between Chvrches, Austra and Paperwhite I am one happy synth-pop loving fool.

Their debut EP, Magic, is out in November and a full length album will be out in 2015.





Zola Blood - Meridian EP

Zola Blood will be releasing their Meridian EP shortly. The ambient electronica they make is comparable to if Kenna and Radiohead had a love child. Great lyrics and outstanding layers of sound to accompany it.

Seriously good stuff.

Here are a few more tracks to get you excited about the release.

Pre-Order it HERE!!



Jo Mango - Transformuration

Jo Mango has released a remix album, entitled Transformuration. The album is a reimagining of all 10 tracks from her alternative folk 2012 sophomore release, Murmuration.

Just to get an idea of what to expect, here is a video of the original version of Evermore.

Here is the remix by The Cormorant.

For those that aren't into the original folk album (which is outstanding) then the remix album should do the the trick. It's loaded with up and down tempo beats and blips while maintaining the original feel that should keep most fans happy.

You can download the remix HERE!!

Buy the whole remix album HERE!!!



Hello! Beautiful - Echoes in the Pier

Fans of The Postal Service will enjoy the dream-pop sounds of Hello!Beautiful.

Jeremy Parker is the one man band playing everything and even producing it all himself.

The lyrics are catchy and music is very energetic and fun. Mr Parker has loads of talent and if this single is any indication, he'll be all over the place very soon.

I can see this being huge with the kids and the kids at heart.

His debut album is out in November!




This is haunting and enthralling. I was hooked from the first beat.

Amazing vocals and lush symphonic sounds, beats and bass to back it up.

Call it Electro-RnB, Electro-Soul...whatever you want to call it, it's good.



Osca - Blood w/ The Night VI

Two great bands that sound great together.

I'll let the music speak for itself.




Ummagma - Kiev Remixes EP

I've been a huge supporter of Ummagma and their dream-pop shoegaze sound and they have just release a remix EP for their track 'Kiev'.

Here is the video for Kiev.

Here are clips of several of the remixes.





Vök - Tension (Official Music Video)

I fell in love with this band the moment I heard them. So unique and so original.

Here is the video for their second single 'Tension'.

Here is the Aei remix of 'Tension'.

Fickle Friends - P L A Y (Foreign Skin Remix)

Before yesterday I never heard of either of these artists.

Today I am a HUGE fan of both.

Here is the original.

Here is the remix by Foreign Skin.

Both are great in there own right...but that remix really has me movin'!





If you enjoy ambient down-tempo stuff like I do then you should really like Evitceles. Along the lines of Boards of Canada and Burial.

Really trippy and cool.

Download his stuff HERE.



VITAMIN - We Breathe Fire

Fans of Passion Pit and MGMT should dig the new single from Vitamin, 'We Breath Fire'.

Their brand of psychedelic-electro-pop is very catchy and fun.

Been listening to this all afternoon.

Smiles all around.

Here are a couple other tunes for your enjoyment.


Liz Vice

I listen to a little bit of everything. What I really love about this blog is being able to expose people to music they may have never thought to check out.

I keeping with that, here is an amazing soul singer, Liz Vice. I hope you like it as much as I do.

In her own words...

""There's A Light" is Liz Vice's debut album, and we here at Deeper Well could not be more excited about it if we tried (trust us, we tried, couldn't get more excited)! Recorded almost entirely live to analog tape over the spring & summer of 2013 in Portland, OR, this album is a gospel-fueled nod to the R&B / soul records of the 60's and 70's - modern enough not to be "throw back", classically influenced enough to feel timeless."

It's really good.





Eilidh McKellar - "Hold Steady" (Official Music Video)

Discovered on YouTube by guitar great, Joe Bonamassa, McKellar, a dazzling 20-year-old phenom from Edinburgh, Scotland, is taking the music world by storm with her raspy voice and amazing guitar skills.

The girl can play!

Check out her video for "Hold Steady".

Her new album, Delta Devil Dreams, is out now.

Here is a taste of the album.

Petter Carlsen

Norwegian singer Petter Carlsen sure knows how to make brooding, atmospheric and emotional music. For someone who has 3 albums out, I don't know how I've never heard of him before,

Very cinematic. Very moving. Very good.

Here is his new single, 'Tiger'.

Download it HERE!!

Here is a live version of another track, 'You begin where everything ends'.



Black Honey

These may all be demos but they sure sounds polished and ready for the masses to me.

I've had this on repeat all day. The guitars are warm and fuzzy, just the way I like them, and the vocals are lush, sexy and cool.

I'm really diggin' the combo.

Their first album can't get here fast enough.



Glyphs - The Machine


Ready for a bit of musical stew? Throw in a bit of  Aphex Twin style broken beats and bleeps, add some shoegazey drones and pepper it with dreamy echoed vocals and you get Glyphs.

Download it HERE!!


Hundred Waters - Animal (Live Video From San Francisco)

I was already in love with this album but seeing them live just cements it.





Vérité - Weekend (Molina Remix)

I'm a fan of the original and I can already see the club kids going bonkers over this remix.


Rod Ladgrove - Love The Way It Hurts

Rod Ladgrove

I am totally getting the Elliot Smith vibe on this new single from Australian singer Rod Ladgrove.

Perfect introspective music for rainy days.

Here's the video too!




Fans of Lissie, Fleetwood Mac and indie rock (with some subtle hints of RnB) should thoroughly enjoy the UK based 6 piece The Night VI.

Sophie-Rose Harper's smooth vocals help guide the band through multiple genres and in the end are like our tour guide on a very enjoyable journey through the landscape that is The Night VI.

Sirena - Chemicals

Here is yet another moving, emotive electro-pop artist who sounds wise beyond her years.

Take a listen to Sirena.



Fable - Fragile

I've been intrigued by Fable for a while now and here is the third song from her EP, Parasite. It still blows my mind she is only 19. If she sounds this good now, I can't wait to see what she's doing in 10 years!

Her full length album can't come soon enough.


LE VERY - Playground

This little bit of electro-pop awesomeness found its way into my inbox this week and I'm glad it did.

Enjoy LE VERY!

Their debut EP, 'Playground', will be out in November.




Like R&B? Like sexy electronica? Enjoy SBTRKT or James Blake? Then you'll love Hawkon!

If your lady doesn't like this, she's dead inside.


Amateur Dance

Amateur Dance sure makes some awesomely deep, emotional and moving house music for someone who is only 20 years old.

Dig it. I know I am.







Duly Noted Records has a hit on there hands and it's called Osca. Think Imagine Dragons meets Coldplay.

The Blood EP will be available in November



Mr President - Hips Shaking

Hips Shaking cover art

This is what sexy sounds like.

Soooooooooooooo groovy.

Here is a taste of the album.





IGZ - Gotta Do

This underground hip-hop single is from IGZ,  a 25 year old recording artist out of Toronto, Canada.

It's a catchy track and it's got me interested in seeing what else he can do.

His full length album should be out in early 2015.


Pill Hill - It Tastes a Little Sweeter

With hints of Toad The Wet Sprocket and the Gin Blossoms, Pill Hill does a great job of taking the working man college rock vibe and adding a bit of warmth and a personal touch that is lacking in a lot of music these days. With influences that range all the way back to the 70's, these Minneapolis rockers have put together an album that is really fresh, fun and a feel good slice of Americana.

This is a perfect soundtrack to that weekend drive to nowhere in particular.

Here is a sample from 'It Tastes A Little Sweeter', the first single 'Butterscotch House'.

Download the new album HERE!!! (name your own price)

My album of the month.





Attaque - Change Your Mind (Official Music Video)

I've been a fan of Attaque for a while and he's just released a video for 'Change Your Mind'.

I love how he seamlessly mixes electronica with shoegazey guitars to create this ethereal sound.


His full length album, ON LY OU will be release at the end of the month.





This is a little different from what I normally post but it's got my feet tapping so I thought I'd pass it along. Alchemist is a 4 piece from Auckland, NZ. Think Muse meets 30 Seconds To Mars.

It gets a bit heavy. Just so you know.
