Power pop/ Rock
“Come On, Let’s Go!” creates uplifting, upbeat party music. While listening to them you can’t help but get up and dance, or at least tap your foot along with the beat. A very excellent and talented band, worth checking them out.
“Come On, Let’s Go!”, formed for one reason and one reason only, to provide people with the joy of their music. They have been playing shows and are working on a new EP. The release date and other related information can be found at comeonletesgo.ca.
After listening to many songs by “Come On, Let’s Go”, I can say that I have become a fan. Whether it be the addicting instrumentals or the rather intriguing vocals, this band will have you hooked in a matter of minutes.
Touching on the bands vocals for a moment, they reminded me of what you would hear in a punk rock type of band, in that they have that, for lack of a better word, “whiney” sound to them. Not that this takes away from the band, in fact, I believe it adds some separation and uniqueness to them, which is always a good thing in my opinion.
I am looking forward to their EP, expected to be out soon. I know that these guys will put out a solid record as they are all amazing musicians.

5) "Eyes Like Diamonds"
Eyes Like Diamonds (E.L.D) combines both softer melodies and more upbeat tempos to create a sound that echos many other bands before them. However what seperates E.L.D from the rest of the pack is their amazing vocals. Check them out on PureVolume and get their new album "Frequencies" on iTunes.
4) "Siberian Jay"
Siberian Jay creates a unique blend of several different genres. This mix creates a unique sound that is really quite enjoyable. Both the vocals and instrumentals are very solid and make for a pleasing listen. You can pick up their self titled album on iTunes.
Canoe combines several general to create a very upbeat, "sing-along", type sound. Like many in similar genres, the vocals are not as strong, yet for Canoe, it doesn't seem to hinder their ability any. Watch for our interview with Canoe, coming soon.
2) "Come On, Let's Go!"
Come On, Let's Go! (C.O.L.G) combine pop and rock to create a sound that is very easy to sing along to. C.O.L.G upbeat music makes for a very pleasent listen. You can catch our interview with them at: http://yourmusicnewsblog.blogspot.com/2012/01/come-on-lets-go-interview-video.html .
1) "A Story Left Untold"
A Story Left Untold (A.S.L.U) is a solid band all the way around, from their instrumentals to their vocals. A.S.L.U is carried by their very powerful and heartfelt vocals. These are accompanied nicely by the music. A very talented band worth checking out. You can find their debut album "Forgetting Something Unforgettable" on iTunes.

Queens/Long Island, New York
The bands sound is sprawled out over several genres including alternative, pop, punk and rock. The only way to truly describe their sound is a combination of all these genres, which makes for a unique sound that is tough to compare.
“A Story Left Untold” formed in November of 2010. Since then, they have played many a show and shared the stage with many different bands. In 2012, they still plan to tour like mad, good news for fans of the band. In July of 2011, their debut album was released, entitled, “Forgetting Something Unforgettable”.
After listening to “ Forgetting Something Unforgettable” right through a number of times. I have reached many a conclusion. First and foremost, they generally play a rather upbeat style of music. Combine this with the very talented vocals of Michelle and you have a catchy band that can captivate the listener and make them an instant fan.
Approaching the band blindly, I can say I did not know what to expect from them. After hearing the intro to “Hallows”, I can truly say I was hooked, intrigued to listen to the rest of the tracks. Most of the album contains mainly upbeat tracks, as I can fairly say was expected, yet there are a few exceptions. “Life Points” has a softer sound to it, which breaks up the album nicely. In addition it is a true showcase of the vocal talents of the band.
All in all, the band has put out a solid record, with amazing vocals and a nice balance of instrumentals, nothing overpowers another. “Forgetting Something Unforgettable” is entirely worth the money to buy on either iTunes or Amazon. Personally, I can not wait to see what the band comes up with next although they sure have their work cut out for them, as their debut album will be a hard act to follow.
