Hipsy's View: More Reverbnation Artists

I'm sorry that I have not been posting lately everyone, but I have been very busy finishing things prior to the end of school. Fortunately today, I got a chance to get onto my Reverbnation account and listen to some artists, Are you ready to hear my review on some them? Here we go!

The first I will mention is a band from Glasgow, Scotland called the Skunnered. Their genres are Country and Folk. Now I am a music lover, we all know that, and some of my favorite songs are traditional and true folk songs. As I was listening to Skunnered I was reminded of the Gaelic music - and even some Old Mountain Music - that I love to death. They also reminded me of some of recent bands (to the states, that is) Mumford & Sons and Gaelic Storm. If these are some bands that you like to listen to, I would definitely recommend you take a listen to Skunnered.

The second artist I recommend is Aoede. She is a singer/songwriter from San Francisco, California and her genres of music are Indie Rock, Pop, and - in my opinion - Folk. I would describe her music as a mixture of Fiest, A Fine Frenzy, Sia, and Zooey Deschanel. If you like these lovely ladies' voices, I'd say go ahead and listen to Aoede.

The final band I'd like to mention is from Sao Paulo, Brazil, and is called Sintetico Ministerio. It said in the band's biography that their Electronic/Industrial/Pop/Alternative music was inspired by a lot of 80s and 90s music. And I would have to agree. As I listened to the lyrics, I compared the lead vocalist to the Eurythmics singer Annie Little. I also felt as though I could compare the songs to more modern artists such as D.H.T. and Cascada. Two main songs that kept coming to my head when listening to this band were The Mummers' Dance by Loreena McKennitt and Teardrop by Massive Attack. If you like International and Electronic music, I'd say check out this band.

The following links are to the artists/bands' songs I would recommend you to hear. Enjoy!


  1. Hi Hipsy. The Skunnered are great. I just discovered them (or they discovered me first!) on Reverbnation recently. Chas is a good guy too - been having a bit of a chat with him about the differences and similarities between Scottish and Northern Irish fried breakfasts!
