In today’s music industry, there are many hidden gems that lie beneath a surface filled with sugary sweet but manufactured pop acts. It is rare to find an artist that is 100% themself, with lyrics that inspire and a voice that stirs the soul. Ingrid Michaelson is one of these hidden gems. Though her music may be well known, heard across television and occasionally on the radio, including the poppy “Maybe” and “The Way I Am”, Michaelson, a New York-based singer-songwriter, generally goes unnoticed. However, with her newest album Lights Out and a stellar new single entitled “Girls Chase Boys,” Michaelson certainly has begun to get the recognition she deserves.

As a fan of Michaelson, I looked forward to this new album for months, anticipating new music and her upcoming tour. I expected great, but what she provided far exceeded my expectations. What Michaelson has produced is nothing short of spectacular.

The album starts out with the upbeat tune “Home.” The title hooked me immediately. With an electrifying feel to it, the song showcases Michaelson’s angelic voice. The song has a nostalgic feel to it, probably representing the meaning of the song: there’s no place like home.

Next up is the smash single from the album, “Girls Chase Boys.” Catchy, fun and road trip-worthy are only a few ways of describing this incredible song. It’s addictive and if the melody doesn’t hook you, the lyrics absolutely will. “All the broken hearts in the world still beat, let’s not make it harder than it has to be. It’s all the same thing, girls chase boys chase girls,” sings Michaelson. The song has earned its place as a love anthem. Everybody searches for love and everybody gets hurt by love. Love is for everyone, a powerful message in today’s society.

In today’s hyper-speed music world, 3 years feels more like 30 years…at least to some fans and especially fans of alt-pop/rockers The Cab.  It has been exactly that long since 2011’s breakout DIY effort Symphony Soldier and since last year’s signing with Republic Records, the group has been working hard for their third overall full length, their first on a label since 2008’s debut Whisper War.   But yesterday (April 15), frontman Alexander DeLeon posted a video clip on his Instagram (since posted also on the band’s official Facebook page) that teases the group working on their new music and that something is about to happen on April 29, which also happens to be The Cab Day.

Perhaps an album release, or the announcement of said album and potential release date (and album title as well?)?

Guess we are all gonna have to wait and see…but here’s the video.

Enjoy.

3 Doors Down will not be denied!  The long-time alt pop-rockets have announced today (Monday April 14, 2014) their summer plans that will see them hit the road for an extended engagement to promote their “3 Doors Down Acoustic – Songs From The Basement” AND an album announcement that has them releasing an album sometime in 2015.  This album will be the group’s sixth effort.

Their “Basement” dates are borne out of a series of performances back in January that saw the group perform some of their biggest hits in their song catalog in acoustic form and due to popular demand, the group is taking this from coast to coast with further digging up of their old music and restoring it in acoustic format.  Singer Brad Arnold shares,

“The acoustic shows are a blast, and we have an amazing connection with our fans during the performances. We are excited to get back out on the road and play these songs for the rest of America!”

In further detail of the album announcement, the group will be bunkering down in a Nashville studio to begin writing the aformentioned sixth effort that will be released next year.  Alongside the founding members, the new repertoire is a collective effort with all members participating in the writing process.

In addition, the band will be returning to the Hawaiian Islands for the 4th of July celebrations at Pearl Harbor- Hickman in Oahu to support the troops, an ardent and very close cause to the group.  This will be their first appearance on the islands since July 5, 2008 when they performed at the Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Honolulu.  Before their return, they will be at the Kadena Air Base at Okinawa, Japan for Freedom Fest June 28th and 29th.  This will be the band’s first visit to Okinawa.

Recap:

Archies unite!  In the re-relaunch of The Countdown and Countdown Mobile, David Archuleta reclaims the no. 1 spot, once again over perpetual runner-up Lucy Hale, who used her no. 1 finish in the mobile tally to do so.  Unfortunately for now former defending champ Florida Georgia Line, it was too little, too late as their no. 7 finish on the mobile tally sank their hopes at a back to back despite finishing up at no. 2 on the web tally side of things; ultimately they finished at no. 4 overall behind Aussie pop upstarts 5 Seconds of Summer.

Scotty McCreery and Danielle Bradbery round out the Top 6, Aloe Blacc is “The Man” at no. 7, followed by The Pretty Reckless at 8.  Little Mix and One Direction round out the Top 12.  HAIM is your latest leader of The Bubble at no. 13.

The next cycle, the 9th begins today at 2 pm ET and the first leaderboards will be issued Monday April 14 at 6 pm ET.  There are five new videos entering the cycle, which means we bade farewell to five existing videos that could not crack the Top 20!

The new vids are:

1.  Rixton | Me and My Broken Heart
2.  Sam Smith | Stay With Me
3.  Coldplay | Magic
4.  Shakira | Empire
5.  Before You Exit | Dangerous

Recap:

In The Web Tally:  David Archuleta remains in the no. 1 spot in the web tally as he creates distance between defending champ Florida Georgia Line (whose no. 1 defense is dashed by a significantly weakened position in the mobile tally) and fellow defending runner-up Lucy Hale at no. 3.  5 Seconds of Summer checks in at no. 4 while Scotty McCreery and Danielle Bradbery close out the Top 6.  Aloe Blacc remains “The Man” at no. 7 while One Direction is your leader of The Bubble at no. 13!

In The Mobile Tally:  Lucy Hale remains in the no. 1 spot, but she will need a big push here to squeak her first career no. 1 on The Countdown; David Archuleta is not too far behind, climbing to no. 2.  5 Seconds of Summer drops to no. 3, Danielle Bradbery and Scotty McCreery remain steady at no. 4 and no. 5 while Lorde closes out the Top 6.

Once left for dead in this tally, Florida Georgia Line is about to complete a huge comeback as they climb all the way to no. 7, sending The Vamps to no. 8, HAIM tumbles down to no. 9, Aloe Blacc is steady at 10.  Justin Bieber takes a big big tumble down to no. 11 and We Are The In Crowd breaks back inside the Top 12 at no. 12!

This is the final leaderboard update.  5 new videos will enter the 9th cycle of The Countdown and Countdown Mobile, which means 5 videos that do not make the Top 20 will be cut!  In the meantime, we now enter the stretch run; this current cycle ends tomorrow at noon ET, the 9th begins tomorrow at 2 pm ET!  Vote, vote, vote!!!
