Donnis

Donnis is an up and coming rapper out of Atlanta Georgia who released his first mixtape in 2009.  His sound is made for the party scene, with catchy synths and lyrics based on the fast life.  His voice is comparable to B.O.B. but his content and lyrical style is in it’s own genre.

Gone

This song is made for the all nighters.  Play this track on the drive to a party and you’ll have the perfect balance of rager mentality mixed with the right balance of the chilled attitude.  Clever punchlines and a hook that describes most Saturday nights makes this song essential to the party playlist.

Underdog

Underdog displays the quick lyrical ability that he can bring.  The instrumentals seem throwback to an old school style of sampling makes the song sound like it could be a classic.


Cake

You all know who they are.  The alternative rock band out of California with half-spoken lyrics is at it again with a new album released yesterday called “Showroom of Compassion.”  This is the band’s first studio release since 2004 and is as unique as ever.  Sticking to their famous style Cake uses a variety of instruments, engaging lyrics, and basically just has as much fun as they always have.

Sick of You

Sick of You” is no surprise to traditional Cake fans.  A catchy tune filled with great guitar and bass lines, trumpets, and keyboards.   The lyrics grab your attention as they are nearly spoken as always, creating a pleasant contrast with the hook.  Classic Cake.

How do you think this song compares to the beloved Cake of the 90s?

James Blake

James Blake is a young London native with a striking voice and a style that most people aren’t used to.  He has roots in the dubstep scene and is poised to release his first album soon.  Blake utilizes piano tunes and seemingly eclectic electronic rythms to create slow meaningful melodies.

Limit to Your Love

Blake’s first single “Limit to Your Love” is a slow emotional song that emphasizes his unique vocal abilities and dubstep background.  Turn your bass up and be ready to empathize with this guy as you watch the mournfully lonely video.

What do you think of this guy’s unique sound?
