This blog is dedicated to spotlighting select songs of independent or small-label artists. These songs can often (but not always) be characterized as pop music, encompassing its many sub-genres. However, none of these songs can be classified as “Top 40″ (or any sub-genre thereof) typically heard on American radio and television. Proving that good, quality pop music is available…you just have to be willing to search for it or know where to find it. This blog takes away all of the work and leads the reader/listener straight to the discovery and enjoyment. The ultimate goal, of course, is to bring these “unknown” artists to the attention of the general public and give them well-deserved attention.
Song in the Spotlight: “She Walks In” (Easton, from H & H (2010))
Genre: Pop Rock
Review: From what little information there is available, TuneTraveller thinks Easton is still together as a band. Hard to tell for certain. What’s not uncertain is the mass appeal of “She Walks In.” Fun, catchy, up-tempo, high energy…all rolled together into one infectious pop song. And it doesn’t hurt that the lyrical content is a theme most everyone will find relatable. But don’t take TuneTraveller’s word for it…give it a spin and check it out for yourself. Because if you don’t like “She Walks In” then you need to schedule an appointment with the school nurse or your audiologist because there’s definitely something wrong with your hearing. Easton is practically giving the song away on Bandcamp so sign up for your digital download today. In any event, that’s a better outcome than discovering you’re tone-deaf. Rating: 4 1/2 stars (out of 5)
