[LISTEN] KE$HA - DIE YOUNG (ACOUSTIC VERSION)

[LISTEN] KE$HA - DIE YOUNG (ACOUSTIC VERSION)

Ke$ha gets judged so much for having autotune music but people forget that she can actually sing. The music industry is a business that will sell the "best" product to the consumers. How the term "best" is being defined is often different depending on who you ask. But at the end of the day, if you have the sh*t to back up all the hype then you're golden. I think Ke$ha is doing a great job at balancing the "business" side of her music with her artistic approach. In other words, she knows what's going to sell while at the same time put out any doubts from the nay-sayers about her vocal abilities. Case in point, this great acoustic version of her latest single, "Die Young" from her upcoming album Warrior. Note that this isn't her first time doing something like this. Last December, she did an acoustic cover of Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right." Check out her acoustic version of "Die Young" right here!

[LISTEN] HUMP DAY MIX - WE FOUND NEW MUSIC NOVEMBER 2012

I'm so grateful to have Grant Owens and Joanne DeVault in my life! Their monthly radio show, We Found New Music, is a great complement to my Hump Day Mixes. In their November show, they brought in L.A.-based indie band, The Rebel Light, for a special interview. As you remember, The Rebel Light was SugarBang's Thirsty Thursday artist that we've been obsessing with ever since. I'm so glad Grant was able to get these guys on the show. The interview with the band is pretty hilarious and you can tell they are all about having a good time. In addtion to the great interview, Grant and Joanne played some great tracks including Young Liars, Electric Guest and Bright Light Bright Light. Be sure to check it out as they gave SugarBang a nice shout out. Do me a solid and check out the We Found New Music Facebook page for updates and the latest and greatest happenings. Thanks WFNM!

[INTRODUCING] TUESDAY TUNES DAY WITH GIN WIGMORE

[INTRODUCING] TUESDAY TUNES DAY WITH GIN WIGMORE

Please give a super warm welcome to Gin Wigmore for her single "Black Sheep" as our Tuesday Tunes Day track of the week. Although this song came out last year in Australia, U.S. audiences got a front row seat all thanks to my favorite Sunday night drama, Revenge. On Sunday's episode, the show teamed up with Target/Neiman Marcus calling their mini-sodes "The Gift of Revenge" where characters from the show were given a special gift wrapped in a white box with a black bow. Inside the box is something for the characters to wear with an invitation to an event. Well it turns out that Nolan was behind the entire thing and was actually throwing a party where Gin Wigmore performed! I think it was an incredibly clever tie-in between the show and the partners keeping the feel of the mini-sodes on par with the Revenge brand. What can I say, I'm a sucker for good advertising. Ok, back to the music. I'd describe Gin Wigmore's sound as a cross between Duffy meets Florence + the Machine meets Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. Be sure to check out this song!
