Do you love live music, good times, cold drinks, new people, any of the bands above, and helping a great cause? Of course you do! If you live anywhere near Los Angeles you can roll all that goodness into one night this Saturday to help us raise money for Charity Water! (& celebrate my birthday!) Charity: Water is a non-profit organization that brings clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries. This charity is unique as 100% of all public donations directly fund water projects.

1 billion people on this planet do not have access to clean, safe drinking water. That’s 1 in 8 of us. Tackling other issues like health, education, hunger, and civil rights is almost impossible in countries where something as fundamental as clean water is unavailable.

Your $20 admission to this event will provide clean water to another Read more

[MP3] Mind The Gap – “Find My Way”

do you understand where i’m coming from

♫ Mind The Gap – Find My Way

  • Who: “A Korean, a Sri Lankan, a Mexican, and a Jew from Cleveland.”
  • What: Danceable indie pop, like Theme Park, Yournalist, The Eclectic Moniker.
  • Where: Los Angeles + Facebook / Soundcloud / Amazon
  • When: New EP coming this spring.
  • Why: Mind The Gap broke into TBE’s pages with the soft-hearted wailer “Once You Leave” back in July and now they are back with another highly grooveable jam to prime us for their new EP. “Find My Way” and a little more angular edge than “Once You leave” and I like the direction things are shifting. We need this kind of bonkers bongo action to summon the sun!

[MP3] Mind The Gap – “Once You Leave”

driving away on a rainy day, is this a sign i should stay?

♫ Mind The Gap – Once You Leave

This isn’t the kind of drama you hear in music these days. It isn’t Hurts’ brand of over the top emoting, and it isn’t all lovey electro love-song either. This is the kind of polished dramatic pop that feels specifically 90s and instantly brings me back to my days next to the radio (Dishwalla’s classic “Counting Blue Cars” anyone?). From the cinematic tension of the opening, to the soaring chorus, I’m hooked and ‘singing’ along. Mind The Gap are also from LA so it’s completely possible they are feeding off the same vibes I grew up with. However, even more likely is that they just know how to write a tune.
