Indie artists & more in our new music bin

Last week's additions to our New Music bin came mostly from well-known bands. This week we're emphasizing emerging, indie artists.

Night Talks is preparing to release its debut full-length album, and we expect it to bring a lot of attention to this Los Angeles alt-rock band. We've been playing the debut single, "Green," for a while and now we're adding the second release, "Mr. Bloom."

Lead singer and songwriter Soraya Sebghati told LA music blog GrimyGoods that "it’s the only song (on the album) that’s not based in my own reality. The song is based on the main character in the James Joyce novel Ulysses." Expect to hear more intelligent rock/pop when the rest of the album drops.

And speaking of intelligent music, Bryan Hansen Band has just released its latest full-length project, When You Stop Pulling Back.

Guitarist-singer Hansen's clever lyrics are backed by a terrific band blending jazz, pop and R&B influences.

We're putting "One More Blues" into our New Music rotation, and you'll be hearing other tracks from the album, showing off this New Jersey outfit's wide musical range,

Jumping from Jersey to western Canada, we take another taste from Wild Son's self-titled debut album. "Build The Future" Mitch Howanyk's violin gives this rock band its unique sound. Check out "Build the Future" in our new-music spotlight.

Our other new-music adds this week are just a little closer to the mainstream: Texas duo Jamestown Revival's single "Love Is A Burden" and a joyous new release by Australia's Temper Trap, "Alive."

We'd like to know what new music you think we should add to our mix! Comment here or shout out to us on Facebook or Twitter.
