Austin Mahone “The Secret” EP Is Out Now!

When we first heard Austin Mahone’s “Say Something” and
“Say You’re Just A Friend”, we instantly loved his classic pop sound (We’ve never been happier that we actually clicked on an Amazon music suggestion.)  But it was his hit single from last summer, “What About Love,” with its 90s sound and the video’s sweet choreography, that earned him the nickname “the one man boy band.”

Austin Mahone succeeds where others have yet to venture – filling the 90s boy band void in our hearts! (We’re talking real, dancing boy bands)!  His debut EP, “The Secret,” out this week, draws inspiration from and gives more than a few nods to 90s boy bands like *NSYNC and Backstreet Boys.  Songs like “Secret”, “Next To You”, and “Til I Find You” all have those classic throwback elements from the blaring bass in the chorus to the breakdowns that are just begging for a slow lean and pop, *NSYNC style.  If you have Backstreet Boys’ “The Call” stuck in your head after hearing Austin’s EP, we did too.  The (kind of) title track, “Secret” shows off the flashy bass line and synths that sound like an early Backstreet/*NSYNC track that never made the album cut – like that weird *NSYNC song that only got released in Germany.

Austin’s slow jams whole-heartedly channel the likes of 98 Degrees and O-Town (who are reuniting by the way).  While every album needs a good love song,  some of these might fall short of a 98 Degrees  “Because Of You”.  Those are big shoes to fill but Mahone took a chance and reached for it, and we have to give him major brownie points for trying!

Watch Austin Mahone perform “Shadow” live on the Today Show!

AJR Announce Partnership with Warner Brothers Records & Summer Tour Dates

NYC-based indie pop band AJR took to social media to share a letter with their fans announcing that their self-made label, AJR Productions, has entered into a partnership with Warner Brothers Records.   The unique arrangement will allow for the band to retain full creative control over their music, photos, videos, merchandise, etc, but ultimately allow for greater distribution.  Read the full letter below:

BkQGniXIEAAC7US
We’re looking forward to see what this year has in store for AJR!  Brothers Adam, Jack and Ryan Met have done an incredible job thus far of gaining support on their own, and this new partnership will definitely take the band to the next level.   One of the things we admire about AJR is that their music has only been touched by their hands: from songwriting to producing and recording.  We love that they promise to still write and record from their living room, and can’t wait to hear even more of their “folky-electronic-doowop-indie-pop music.”

Their single, “I’m Ready,” has been gaining a lot of radio play nationwide, and the video recently hit 1 Million views on Youtube! Check it out below!  (It’s a serious case of life imitating art).

AJR will be playing several radio festivals this summer, joining artists like Austin Mahone, Jason Derulo, Cody Simpson and Karmin.  Check out the dates below!

AJR’s Debut EP “6foot1” is officially out!

Last week, New York based pop trio AJR released their debut EP “6foot1” on iTunes and Amazon MP3. Now that we have had some time with the new songs, we are blown away with how talented these guys are!

Written, recorded, mixed and mastered all by themselves in their parents’ living room, AJR continues to impress us.  As if that wasn’t enough, the boys also designed the cover art.    And in case you were wondering where the title “6foot1” came from, it’s because Adam, Jack and Ryan are all 6 foot 1.  Here is our track-by-track review of the EP!

The opening track, “I’m Ready” is the brothers’ first single and has been climbing the Pop Chart on iTunes (as high as 98!).  Sampling the iconic Spongebob “I’m Ready” clip, AJR layered dubstep bass drops and the most catchy chorus we’ve heard all year.

The second track ,”Woody Allen”, has such a fun sound to it!  We aren’t quite sure what they mean when they say they feel like Woody Allen but it makes for a great song.  Also, the most inventive censoring of a word we’ve ever heard (we’re looking at you Ryan!).   This song has so many layers and we can’t stop listening to it!   We hear something new every time.

“Growing Old On Bleecker Street” isn’t exactly new to us, but every time we listen to this song, we wish we could live on Bleecker Street.   We love the ukelele and the melody of this song.  One of our favorite lyrics: “I woke up last night from a dream that we’d grow old on Bleecker Street. Sit by the fire and I’d play my guitar but dreams are only dreams.”

We are obsessed with the horns in “AfterHours.”    We can’t wait to hear this song live!   It’s super catchy and high energy chorus will have any venue rocking.   And are those water glasses we hear in the background?   Nice.

The EP closes with “Buy You a Rose,” which showcases Adam, Jack and Ryan’s unique voices and powerful harmonies.   Check out their beatboxing in the background (we already knew they had serious skills).   The gang vocals on this song are incredible.  Just listen to this song and you’ll see why it’s our favorite.

As we’ve mentioned, we are seriously looking forward to what’s in store from AJR next year, including the release of their full length debut album.  (PS guys, we are going to need studio versions of “The Green and The Town” and “Married on a Hill” hint hint)

The EP is available now on iTunes and Amazon MP3 for just $2.99!   That’s less than your morning latte.  Get it now!
