Lots of songs never make it to the radio that are getting lots of attention online. Live tracks, sanctioned and unsanctioned remixes, mash-ups, overlooked gems by unsigned artists. Every week on “Are You Feeling This,” we invite you to hear what the buzz is all about. You tell us what you think. Vote in the 'Are You Feeling This' poll, and leave a comment.
The first track of the evening came from the supergroup Atoms For Peace, which features Radiohead's Thom Yorke, Nigel Godrich, Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea, Joey Waronker (Beck), and Mauro Refosco. We played their new track called "Default."
Next up is the song "Heartbeat" from The Kopecky Family Band, who just self-released the track. The track comes from their forthcoming album Kids Raising Kids. You can download the tune via Rolling Stone's website.
The next band, Hudson Taylor, consists of brothers aged 18 and 20. They are originally from Ireland, and definitely posess a Mumford & Sons vibe. Check out the tune "Battles," which we played this evening.
Finally, we have new music from Two Door Cinema Club. The tune "The World Is Watching" features an 88Nine favorite, Valentina. The track comes from their new album beacon.
