Hey girl. Damn, you're looking good today. Feel our sweater. It's made of boyfriend material. Oh, did somebody say it's Valentine's Day today? Maybe we could go for dinner, grab coffee at your place after, and see where the night takes us? No seriously, please say yes, we're kind of desperate. Hey girl. Where are you going? Sigh, it's looking like another Valentine's Day spent at home with this week's five New Finds and our imaginary girlfriend for company.





“Out of Melbourne, Australia comes 23 year old singer-songwriter Hayden Calnin. Not only can he play a wide variety of instruments, but he also has a degree in sound design which definitely shines through in his songs. This self-produced new artist's music is a beautiful blend of progressive folk and electronica, littered with dramatic vocals that would have made him a perfect fit for the series of Twilight soundtracks (read more...)”

These Norwegian indie gods have been doing their thing for a while now but recently spent 100 days in Spain creating their debut album, '88. Props to Gui Alvim for discovering them (read more...)”

“Hailing from Metz, France, new artist and ambient electronic group MWTE can craft a soundscape like they were born doing it. Sometimes upbeat and surprisingly complex, MWTE's tracks are constantly evolving and never grow stale like so many electronic tracks.

About Jess Grant

When Jess Grant isn't writing on music, she can be found playing it – on her guitar, on her ukulele, and on her recently acquired mandolin. Playing it hideously, she ought to add. Jess also studies. She studies the English language, to be precise. Jess is currently on her way to a degree in the subject, and enjoys starting and never finishing novels, screenplays, and poetry in her spare time. She also likes dogs. Lots of dogs.
