Jamaican Queens - Kids Get Away

Indiedance. Singer/songwriter Ryan Spencer said he drew inspiration from a vicious attack a friend of his suffered in Detroit.
Says Spencer: "I wrote this song to myself as a reminder that I live in a very dangerous place and that I shouldn't be so naive. Violence is everywhere, and though I'm more likely to be victimized in Detroit than almost anywhere else, this city also has so much going for it that no other place I've ever been does. The possibility of violence is no reason to flee what I feel to be the best place I've ever lived. This song is a reminder to myself of that. Be careful, but don't give in to fear."

Embers - Hollow cage

Take a few minutes and listen to this song. Embers is a new band from Manchester with an epic sound that has elements of post-rock, psychedelia, shoegaze, ambient and even choral music. Think about the massive sound of Muse and Sigur Rós.
My guess is this band will be very successfull. Still unsigned though!
