Odd Us singer-songwriter Aras Baskauskas has called quite a few places home. After playing basketball for UC Irvine, the L.A. native moved to Lithuania to play pro ball, but not for long. He then lived for a time in South Africa, where he opened his own yoga studio. Sometime during all of this, he also managed to win a season of ‘Survivor.’ Clearly the wearer of many hats, Baskauskas is also a skilled musician and artist.

The guys of Brave Young Lion are fresh out of college, and their debut EP, ‘Same Old Game,’ is filled with smart indie-rock reflecting on that often-confusing time when 20-somethings are just coming into their own.
Philly trio Metropolis America calls their sound “cold pop,” as it’s their modern interpretation of the Cold War era in the U.S. They're possibly referring to the tension built between their smartly crafted, electro-infused pop songs and frontman Cristian Mora’s deadpan vocals.
No, Sunwolf's 'Push It' is not a rock 'n' roll cover of Salt-n-Pepa's 1988 single of the same name. It is, however, still a worthwhile listen that'll help you "push" the limits of your dreary Monday afternoon.
Today's free MP3 comes from Portland, Ore.-based singer John Amadon, whose new album 'The Bursting Sheaf' melds the folky sounds of the Northwest with classic rock rhythms.
Seattle quintet Atomic Bride have created a set of four mesmerizing tracks on their latest EP, ‘Electric Order,’ which lands Sept. 14. We say mesmerizing not just because the group knows how to craft a fine-tuned song, but because they also serve up some seriously gritty psychedelic pop that might leave you in a trance by the EP’s end.
We'd like to think blues-rock icon Jack White would be flattered there's an insane dance move named in his honor. According to New York funksters Spirit Animal, 'The Black Jack White' requires throwing your fists in the air, doing a little two-step and shaking your hands like they've gone to sleep.
Nobody, Ever are made up of dudes that look like the bartenders of the club you're supposed to be seeing the band in. But once the four-piece get up onstage, they lay it all on the line, cracking skulls with righteous amounts of sludgy rock. And you, the unassuming audience member, stand there totally slayed by the guy that made you a vodka tonic 15 minutes prior.
There's a lot of evidence to suggest that emo (at least it's earliest iteration) is making a comeback in modern rock music. Philadelphia's Balance and Composure pick up where Sunny Day Real Estate left off, but they add absolutely brutal layers of blitzkrieg distortion.
As rents continue to climb in the American musical hotbed of Brooklyn, N.Y., we're going to see a lot more bands moving to the outskirts -- or staying where they came from. Long Island's Bellegards are one of the best projects we've heard from the suburbs of New York City.
