Misun Sharpshooter

Misun (pronounced ‘me-sun’) is Washington, DC-based trio Misun Wojcik (vocals), Nacey (production) and William DeVon (bass/keys).  Their debut The Sea was released in the Summer of 2012 – while that was a while ago, I recommend checking out the full EP here. There is a lot more where that came from — below are some additional tracks floating around (and check out their SoundCloud page here).  Liking what you hear?  Live in LA?  Misun will be celebrating the release of their next single “Travel With Me / Sleep” on 7″ vinyl at Bootleg Bar on February 18th.

I n t r o d u c i n g: Laurel <3


I haven’t had a girl crush like this in awhile. Not since Florrie and then all of a sudden on a warm, sunny morning…. I n w a l k s Laurel. Laurel Arnell-Cullen is “London’s last sweetheart”

Check out Mankind and Blue Blood – Blue Blood was my first intro to Laurel – beautiful voice, beautiful beats. Soulful and passionate – a new addictive beauty to listen and daydream endlessly to…Laurel evokes those little painful moments of love that were the best and the worst all at once but most of all made you feel alive.


Take it slow I don’t need this
Birthday sex, you were the best
and Oh babe I’ll love you till your lonely
Oh babe, I’ll love you till you love me
I’ll love you till you love me


Ginger and the Ghost


I first heard of Ginger And The Ghost when I saw them live at sxsw this year. And my love for them has grown significantly from the moment Ginger went on stage to captivating the audience with her voice and ethereal costumes and then grew when I started listening to her tracks, watching her videos, oh and then came the remixes. The glorious, glorious remixes.

One Type Of Dark:

Is there just one type of dark?

looking through the telescope Im looking back at me

Wondering what type of girl I’m supposed to be

I’m the one that dreams in color

Ginger and the Ghost: One Type of Dark

Cheers Elephant – Doin’ It Right

wherever it takes me…


Et Musique Pour Tous posted about them a few weeks back and i loved it at first sight/listen.

Cheers Elephant is a quartet from Philly – they look and sound like what I imagine my pops and his friends to listen to in the 70′s sitting around in their puma track suits with some beers on their way to play basketball so naturally I’m in love with this album. They recently released ‘Like Wind Blows Fire’ – 10 tracks for $10. A few shows this month and next in Philly.

Stand out tracks: Peoples; Doin It Right; Leaves; Little Dog.
