L.I.F.E Press

L.I.F.E. Press, pronounced Life Press, stands for Listen It Fixes Everything Press. Because music is a valuable aspect of life that carries the power of being able to fix everything, at least temporarily.
This is a website that brings the scene right to your bedroom. We photograph shows, interview artists & bands, write reviews of shows/albums/music videos etc., do artist spot-lights and may even have your favorite musician as a guest writer. Keep your eyes peeled because you won't want to miss out on everything we're doing. We're not a music news site, we're a place to come to, to see great photos, watch/listen/read amazing interviews, read some well written reviews and find out about artists you probably never would've given a chance. Listening to music can really fix everything, even if it temporarily fixes it all, it is the fix you need. This is the place to come to get your fix.

Smashing Satellites released their newest single, “Hounds,” last month along with a music video that combines ’80s style with a pop-punk sound. The song itself is synth-intensive with pop beats, similar to the likes of Neon Trees.

Lead singer Salvatore Costa was previously the guitarist in the band, My Darkest Days, but left to pursue song-writing as well as his own musical career. Shifting from performing with a more dark and angst-y group, to being the leader of Smashing Satellites is an exciting transition showing great musical flexibility.

Their debut EP “SonicAluzion (A-side)” will be available on September 30th, pre-order it on iTunes here!

ODESZA, an electronic duo from Seattle, released their full length album, “In Return,” this past week. Combining instrumental electronica with elements of groovy R&B beats and the simple dreaminess of chillwave, this album has something for everyone. With different vocalists being featured on songs within the album, there’s a really great collection of tracks showing the breadth that the duo, Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight, have to offer. 

I’ve expected big things for this group ever since I discovered them on SoundCloud a little while back, and it looks like it won’t be long before that happens. Check them out on tour this fall, I would especially recommend them to listeners of Cashmere Cat, Flume and Disclosure.

Bastille just released the music video for their song “bad_news” which is available on the “Oblivion EP” which you can get by clicking HERE

Straight to the Beach - Seasick Sailors

This poppy and uplifting song has been my summer anthem, and even though summer is coming to a close I feel like this will continue to be a perfect song to listen to while driving or whilst feeling some summer nostalgia.

Seasick Sailors is a Belgian band whose debut album “Nicky Was Ambitious” came out earlier this year. The rest of the songs on their album follow the same indie pop genre that this song provides, but also bring more variety to the table with darker sounding songs like “Fountain” and  “Seasick Sailor”

Known for her current hit single “Boom Clap”, Charli XCX has been increasing her presence in the music world with her angsty Gwen Stefani-esque voice. She recently released a music video for her second single, “Break the Rules” where she plays a rebellious high school student who steals the show at prom.

Charli XCX states of the video’s concept, “I was inspired by movies like ‘Jawbreaker’ and ‘Carrie’ for the ‘Break the Rules’ video. I never went to prom when I was at school so this was kind of me living out my weird fantasy of what prom would be like in my head. I asked Rose McGowan to be in the video and I never ever thought she would say yes, but she did… so she came to prom too… And she trashed it.”

Starting her international career by being featured on pop songs that she co-wrote: “I Love It” by Icona Pop + “Fancy” by Iggy Azaela, Charli XCX has been able to lay down the groundwork to establish her own success.

Charli XCX’s sophomore album, Sucker, is set to be released on October 21, pre-order is available on iTunes now! She is also set to go on a North American headliner tour, hitting up all the major cities from the east coast to the west coast, check out the tour dates and purchase tickets on her website here.

My very good friends in Crash The Party just released their cover video to One Direction’s latest single “Best Song Ever.” Now not only does their cover sound amazing, but I filmed the videos that their guitarist and other singer Chris put together to make this epic video. So I may be a little bias when I say this video is amazing, but it truly is and everybody should check it out.

If you love this cover, you can download it FOR FREE by click HERE.

Fall Out Boy has released a music video for their song “Alone Together” which is the fourth music video instalment in the “Save Rock and Roll: Young Blood Chronicles”. By the rate these music videos are coming out, I have a feeling each song off the album is going to be chronicled in music video form. The videos keep getting darker but it keeps me engaged and wanting to know what is going to happen to Fall Out Boy.

The first annual Big Night Out Tour features a strong lineup of musically diverse and established bands who combined have sold billions of records, topped the charts, invaded the airwaves and have racked up more road miles then one can count.  This nationwide trek is set to launch July 5th and unites Fuel, Hoobastank, LIT and Alien Ant Farm. (via press release)

It is infact 2013 and I am definitely blogging telling you that Fuel, Hoobastank, LIT and Alien Ant Farm are doing a tour together THIS summer. If you’re like me, you just read that line up and a younger version of yourself is jumping for joy knowing they’ll get to hear “My Own Worst Enemy” or “Reason” live again.

Jodi Good is an up and coming singer/song writer. If you haven’t heard of her yet, you’re sincerely missing out. Keep reading below to read our interview with her and find out lots about her and her music!

But before you check out our interview with her, check out her music and become a fan. 

L.I.F.E. Press: Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Jodi Good: Hey! I’m a 23 year old singer/songwriter from NYC. I am an animal lover, a child at heart, and a total flirt! I feel like I’m applying for a dating site! haha 

LP: When did you decide to pursue singing professionally?
JG: I decided to sing when I was around 19 years old…when I realized I literally couldn’t do anything else…can’t work a cash register…can’t cut hair…

LP: Who are your main musical inspirations?
JG: This is always a tricky question for me to answer because I’ve always been most inspired by people’s words, conversations, and lives. That being said, I STRIVE to make an album that helps/impacts people the way P!NK’s “Misundaztood” and Christina Aguileras’s “Stripped” did for me.

LP: I saw on your Facebook that one of your songs was recently played on project anti bullying radio, how did you get involved with project anti bully? 
JG: Project Anti Bully actually reached out to me after I retweeted them! How lucky??

LP: What made you want to get involved in that particular anti bullying campaign? 
JG: Having been bullied, I know what it can do to your spirit. There is still a residue of pain left on my heart from those mean kids in elementary school. We can’t let them win! It is scary to think of all the potential that is crushed by bullies - it has to stop.

LP: Do you plan on using your music as a way to help get involved in other causes? JG: Absolutely. I want my music to form a platform that I can use to help others. 

LP: You recently started doing music mondays, what made you want to do that? 
JG: I think consistency is important. If you put out enough videos, people will have to look at atleast one.

LP: Are you ever worried that you will get fans solely from your cover videos who will only want to hear your covers and not your original songs as well? 
JG: That thought has crossed my mind, but I think covers will open the door for people to hear my original songs. If they don’t like my original stuff, they can just be fans of my covers! I think it is more important to have true fans than A LOT of fans. Everyone has different tastes and I appreciate every fan even if they don’t like everything I do. 

LP: Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
JG: I wish I had a clue! Life can take so many different directions in just a few months time. In five years, I HOPE that I can modestly support myself by singing and songwriting and that I have the ability to give back.
LP: Anything else you’d like to add? 
JG: It is so important for me to spread my messages of acceptance and love. If I can better even just one person’s life, my life has not been wasted.
