Duo You+Me, made up of Alecia Moore (P!NK) and Dallas Green of City and Colour released their debut album, rose ave. last week on October 14th. The sound on the album is very folk-y, with a heavy accoustic guitar presence and beautiful vocal harmonies.
The project was not always intended to be a full-length album; Pink commented that, "We really had no intention for this to become what it is. We were just two friends getting together and doing what we love and I couldn’t be more proud of what we accomplished." What started as two friends singing and playing guitar together has already been immensely successful. The album has already been immensely succesful, debuting on the Billboard Hot 200 at ##4 and #1 on the Folk Album Chart.
Check out the video for "Break The Cycle", a single off of rose ave.!
You+Me's rose ave. is avaible for purchase here!
German rock sensation Tokio Hotel have released their album, Kings of Suburbia, after almost five years of silence. The group relocated to Los Angeles to gain back a sense of anonymity, and get back to what they love the most, creating fresh new music.
This project is the product of reinvention in the L.A. nightlife and many long nights. Inspired by the sounds of the club scene, Tokio Hotel mixed what they would see DJ's doing with their own original formula, expanding on their guitars, bass and drums to include pianos and synthesizers. With the blending of live instruments and electronic beats, the band has created a new identity for themselves, capturing their new outlook on their sound.
Check out their video for the single, "Love Who Loves You Back"!

We have a fun track premiere for you today from an LA Indie-Pop band called Act As If! Their new song is called "All Our Friends". This track is on repeat at the Buzznet office and we hope you love it just as much as we do!
'All Our Friends' is a song about so many things. I couldn't sleep one night...I kept thinking of a conversation I'd had earlier with a friend...about love and work and friends and death (all the good stuff). So this song was born from of all that. I think the overall inspiration is that life is short, and we need to work hard to make the most of it--while somehow not taking it all so seriously. (And by the way, please call me if you have any advice on this." - Peter Verdell / vocalist
What do you think of the song?
