Music 4 Music People


From Honne to the music counterparts of San Fermin, here’s what’s orbiting the musical universe this week.


What We’re Listening To

Breaking Benjamin, “Failure”

This should do the trick to get your blood pumping as we kick off this week’s issue of AWOPBAMBOOM.

Muse, “Dead Inside”

The English rock band’s latest single dropped just under a month ago.

Of Monsters and Men, “Crystals”

The Icelandic are here with some alternative rock for you!

Saint Motel, “My Type”

Est. in 2009, this L.A. group has brought pop-rock to a reality.

George Ezra, “Budapest”

The 21-year-old Ezra nearly didn’t make our list — as his promotion on Delta Airlines last month was near overkill.

And a couple of more artists worth mentioning…

Xiu Xiu — Wikipedia best describes this band with the term “experimental”.

San Fermin – This band has music for everybody. “Renaissance!” sounds like it could be covered by an opera artist whilst “Jackrabbit” has the peppy stuff for younger audiences.

Honne – Will Honne be your honey? We think their simple stylings may win ya over.
