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.
First up is the English band Port Isla. Think of Fleet Foxes meets the Beatles. This unsigned band is picking up traction with their most recent release of the song "Sinking Ships." We featured an older tune that definitely posseses a Beatles vibe called "Silly Girl."
Next, we head to Sweden for a track by Ellinor Olovsdotter aka Elliphant. She brings an hip hop and dancehall swagger on her tune "Down On Life." Check out the really unique video for the song.
Portland Electronic band Chromatics is next with their unique take on New Order's classic tune "Ceremony."
Finally, we featured another cover song. This time it is a cover of Michael Jackson's "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)" by singer/songwriter/producer Nite Jewel.
