Millions of Brazilians




I love Detroit. I love Detroit Music. After seeing these guys play live at Northern Lights Lounge in Downtown Detroit, I was hooked. Their energy on stage is addictive. Millions of Brazilians is a band everyone needs on their ipod. For the short time this band has been around, they have built a strong fan base in the city. They are currently on tour with the Electric Six and the Gay Blades. I have posted a few new tracks from their new release and my favorite track "vermont" which is an oldie but goodie. You can check out more of MOBz @: http://www.myspace.com/millionsofbrazilians Enjoy!

Jams Dean





I Heard this track last night and I loved it. The beat is nice, the flows are spot on and I love how he gives props to one of my favorites, Calvin Harris. When I heard this song it inspired me to do a sick mix. Thanks Blake and we can't wait to hear more from Jams Dean. Check him out at http://www.myspace.com/blakegardnermusic

S&S FEATURED ARTIST: A.Dd+




ADD Plus is all 808 with no heartbreak. This duo came together in North Dallas and like they say "one didn't know shit bout music and the other one did..put it together shook it up and it fizzed". One tall (Skinny Hansel) one short (Paris Pershun) these fellas evoke the spirit of Outkast and UGK mixed with a little new school like the Cool Kids and N.E.R.D . Their rhymes are dope and remind me of the good old days of hiphop. Their beats are sick and would fit in at a house party or to make the trunk rattle. I contacted Add+ through twitter after they gave me props on the blog. The mixtape "Power of the Tongue" is out now and you can take a listen to it here: http://addplus.bandcamp.com/ or check out their myspace: http://www.myspace.com/skinnyhansel

Thank you fellas for supporting Sketch & Strongmouth! Anytime you have any tracks you want to release I would love to post it up here for Detroit to hear.

Here are a few of my favorite tracks from the mixtape:



A.Dd+ " Good Marketing"

A.Dd+ "Release"

Sleigh Bells no Christmas music here!



My buddy John Loden sent me an email the other day and it was a link to this band Sleigh Bells. He has exquisite taste in music so I opened up the link and listened. Originally I though the track was not good quality because it was a little distorted, but then I realized that that is a part of their sound. This is a bedroom project by Brooklyn duo Alexis Krauss and Derek Miller( formerly of Poison the Well). Indie electro pop and crunchy as hell. Enjoy these tracks!

-Strongmouth (thanks J-lo)






Sleigh Bells- "Infinity Guitars"

Sleigh Bells- "Ring, Ring"

The Photo Atlas

I lived in Denver for two years and this was one of my favorite bands to see live. The Photo Atlas' music is an indie rock/electro/dance blend that is high energy and addictive. The guitar riffs are fantastic and the drum work is extraordinary. The guys in the band are pretty cool and down to earth. The buzz on this band is getting bigger and it won't be long until everyone knows their name. I have posted a few of their songs on the page and check out their myspace page:

The Suicide Machines

I'm going to the late night punk/ska show tonight! The Suicide Machines (formerly Jack Kevorkian and the Suicide Machines) was one of my favorite punk bands when i was 14 years old. My friend Josh was a little bit older than I was and he would take me to all of these punk shows. We scoured the city of Detroit in search of a punk shows and found them. It was a great time in my life. It was the first bit of freedom I had ever tasted and it lead me directly into the arms of music. Tonight I get to re-live a bit of my youth as the Suicide Machines are together again. Here are some of my favorite songs, even though they are all pretty good. Enjoy

Wolfmother


In a time where there is an infinite surplus of music and artist, I can easily say that Wolfmother is one of my all time favorite bands.
A band who just recently put out their second album, even after the original band broke up. How can they possibly be at the top of my list? Simple. They are just that good. Andrew Stockdale is the lead singer and only original member of the band, I'm pretty sure he is a genius. This Australian, psychedelic, hard rock band is nothing short of amazing. If you have never heard of them or just don't believe me, please let the music speak for itself. They will be in Detroit Rock City November 12th at Clutch Cargo in Pontiac. See you there!

Wolfmother-"Cosmic Egg"

Katy Perry is Hot & 3oh!3 knows pop music!

30h!3 is an electronic/pop group from Boulder,CO. 303 is actually Denver's area code, hence the name. They are known for their hit song "Don't Trust Me". On this track the duo collaborates with Katy Perry to bring you "Starstrukk". The boys keep it consistent with their sound, bringing in the pop princess to take this song up a notch. Their formula is simple and it works. I'm digging the track and I love Katy Perry, so for your viewing pleasure, I added the video. Enjoy
