Featured Artist - Sinoptik | #3tags bit.ly/1g5BnOE #IndieMusic
Every so often there is a band that I "crack out" on. Enter "Sinoptik." If music were a drug I would have overdosed a long time ago. I am always thankful when great new music enters my life. Especially when it's as amazing as Sinoptik! As a professional musician, engineer and avid listener of music I like just about every genre. What I really like is when musical styles and genres mix and match to form exciting new music. This is exactly what Sinoptik accomplishes as they proclaim in their bio "three generations of rockn'roll in one shot. The best mix of the '60s and 2000s rock. Unpredictable fusion-absorption of psychedelic stoner, old-school rock and digital indie. The creative concept of SINOPTIK - delicate lyrics and the burst of sound. They blend power and beauty, roaring of overloaded guitars and cosmic sounds of the keys." WHOA, now that's a loaded couple of sentences but describes their sound better than I could with my simple vocabulary!
I encourage you to really check out Sinoptik!! I don't mean just hit play on a song only to spin it and forget it. This band is GOOD!! Really good in fact. The video below is a prime example of how first impressions matter. When I started writing this featured I was trying to remember why I had picked this group in the first place. I opened the folder on them and proceeded to their website to be greeted with a live performance of "Alex Is Her Name." I'm an antsy guy, I can't sit still for more and 5 minutes and have watched literally that much television in the past 6 months but Sinoptik stopped me dead in my tracks at 3:30 am on a sleepless Monday night while getting this feature ready.
Now playing on my Spotify, I'm hooked and you will be too! In December 2014 SINOPTIK released their second LP titled 16/58. The album is filled with musicians' point of view of cosmos and the humanity in it. According to the bands info pack "This is a story about a man, who was thrown into deep space with a colossal strength under the roaring of rocket engines..."
Make sure to check out the video below and grab their latest album 16/58 on iTunes or favorite music service.

Alejandra Urban Mayan Life | bit.ly/1JJbi3w #3Tags #IndieMusic #UrbanMusic
The Urban Mayan
Alejandra is a budding starlet from Queens, NY. Rooted deep in her Guatamalan heritage Alejandra is a multi-talented singer, dancer, actress and songwriter. After having a latin song become a finalist for the John Lennon Competition and a song placed for MTV tres she decided it was time to step out into the spotlight, and "Urban Mayan Life" was born! The single "UML" is on it's way to being a hit. You can watch the brand new video below. An anthem made for Latinos, this song is also has major appeal for the masses. A positive summertime anthem, UML is sure to please your ears as it did mine! A student of LaGuardia Performing Arts School (Jennifer Aniston, Nicki Minaj), Alejandra was surrounded by creativity growing up. Coupled with summertime trips to Guatamala it's almost as if Alejandra has been bred and groomed to be a level headed star by having a wide array of world experiences growing up and she's not taking it lightly. In fact, she's taking it very serious!! Her drive can be seen by just visiting her website . Take a peek! I enjoyed the videos that give you a glimpse into this urban Mayan. I particularly like "Policia." The production on this tune is tight...leaving the listener waiting for the blow out but it never really happens. Alejandra's vocals are perfect over top of this production gem. The melody is simple but she is able to change it up throughout the tune to keep it more than interesting. In fact, I like this song so much I listened to both the english and spanish version multiple times in a row!! In my opinion, this song is destined for the movies. So, I listen to tons of music. It's my job and I love it. It's always a plus when I enjoy the music on the speakers! I'll be honest, the tune "Rebels" didn't catch my attention right away. I found myself drifting shortly after the song began...after about the 3rd listen I remember thinking ,"Wow this IS a great song!" You know how sometimes it just takes a few listens for something to grow on ya? Yea, that was "Rebels" for me. Although I can't understand a single word in "Prisa" it's the musical language that speaks to me. This song isn't the highlight of the EP for me for obvious reasons, but the chorus is enjoyable and melodic. BUT WAIT!! "Hurry" comes through with the english version! LOL! It must be amazing to be bilingual. So, the English version makes much more sense to this uni-lingual guy. Last notes: Alejandra has her act put together. If I were you I would be looking for her to explode in the near future...maybe not in American per say...but probably here too. Connect with Alejandra by clicking on the social buttons below her Soundcloud profile to the left of this article and tell her Indie Music Plus sent you! - JoeJoeKeys
