The ol' TWTR blog comes back to life a bit (although still no new podcast episodes for the foreseeable future) to spread the word about the fantastic Los Angeles-based band, Lo Moon.
Clint Eastburn has kept very busy lately producing catchy, electro-pop goodness—as he says—"in an attic off South Street" in Philly. Recording simply as Eastburn, the songwriter/musician/producer released a five-song EP called Good Morning on his Bandcamp and Soundcloud profiles in 2012. He has received positive buzz from Philadelphia Weekly's "On the Record" column and PW's Make … Continue reading Artist to Watch: Eastburn
I can't believe I haven't written an Artist to Watch post on Australian singer-songwriter Kate Miller-Heidke until now.* My wife and I saw her open for Ben Folds in Montclair, N.J., in April 2010 and instantly became huge fans of hers. Miller-Heidke's third album, Nightflight, has deservedly received very positive reviews from a number of … Continue reading Artist to Watch: Kate Miller-Heidke
I first learned of Oxford, Miss.-based singer/songwriter/musician Dent May when I heard the song "Eastover Wivez"—a bonus track on his 2009 release, The Good Feeling Music of Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele (released under the name of Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele)—on satellite radio a couple of years ago. It was one of … Continue reading Artist to Watch: Dent May

The opening piano chords had this certain timbre that intrigued me. Then, when soulful horns, bass line and vocals kicked in, I was really drawn into the song. Finally, the male … Continue reading Artist to Watch: Fitz and the Tantrums
Right on the heels of the post I did on Passion Pit the other day, I would like to share with you another artist to watch. I first heard of Winter Gloves when I happened to catch the track "Invisible" from their "about a girl" CD on XM Radio's The Verge channel. It was the … Continue reading Artist to Watch: Winter Gloves
As someone who uses Pandora as a tool for new music discovery and listens to WXPN, the great radio station operating out of Philadelphia's University of Pennsylvania, and to the emerging artist channels on XM Radio, I sometimes hear a band I like and think to myself, "You know, I wish I blogged about them … Continue reading Artist to Watch: Passion Pit
