Amo Amo tells stories far from what the eye can see on new single, “When I Look At You,”

Amo Amo wants to look at you, and chances are, you want to look at them too. The dream pop outfit’s third single, “When I Look at You,” stream from my speakers and puts a whole new endearing twist on how a simple look can subdue a person. With their mesmerizing vocals and psychedelic rock, the five piece has me wanting to share genuine (non-creepy) glances with other people, make someone smile, and to try and make the human connection more...human. The sheer beauty and elegance of the accompanying music video is moving in itself. There is a small ‘peeping tom’ aspect to the video, creating a humorous atmosphere that only adds to the originality of the band’s creativeness. 

Amo Amo just played a Valentines Show at The Moroccan Lounge, but if you weren’t there, you can find the rest of their tour dates on their website and keep a look out for an album release this spring. Kayla Hay

Hot Flash Heat Wave Releases Mood Ring EP Feb 15

After the “Sky So Blue” single released last month we were excited for Hot Flash Heat Wave’s EP release on February 15th. Praise Prince above we were not disappointed. Tracks are refreshingly varied and full of life, from surfy psych rock to electro pop-rock. Songs have similar feels as Animal Collective but with a touch of Smith Westerns and an Italian pop vibe. Can you picture it? Probably not but listen and discover what we’re putting down here. An EP favorite, “Floating,” starts with a chugging guitar moving with distorted spacey vibrations that gives the same feelings as the song’s title. Hot Flash Heat Wave kicked off their tour last night at The Independent and are about to glide across the states. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

   

Bertling Noise Laboratories "...into thin air"

Bertling Noise Laboratories are the bedroom recordings of Nick Bertling. This week he released a new EP called “…into thin air”, and it really caught us by surprise. This is well-crafted, melodic, indie rock with elements of Ben Folds and Ben Kweller, and probably some other guys named Ben.

Last month Nick posted that he had a total of 12 fans on Spotify and that number should be dramatically higher based on this EP alone.
