Hi and welcome to Alternative Airwaves - I'm your host Steve, bringing you the best in Creative Commons music. This is the Weekly Airwave: one track with some information about the song or the artist.

This week's track: My Sweet and Sour Room by Icicle. This is an instrumental track by Montreal artist Icicle; I found this by looking at similar artists to Lower Loveday from last week's episode. I don't normally pick out instrumental tracks, but I really liked the beat and instrument choice in this song. Icicle is actually Krassy Halatchev, and has Bulgarian origins. I think you can really hear some of his influences come through in this track. You can follow him on Jamendo or icicle.club.

This week's track: You Could've Been My Queen by Lower Loveday.  This great indie track brought me back to the early 2000's indie scene with great British bands like Arctic Monkeys, or The Fratellis.  Lower Loveday is indeed a British group, and got their start in a school talent show.  They've been all around the UK and the world, and are making some great music.  Aside from this week's track I also recommend Is It Right, currently one of their more popular tracks on Jamendo.  You can find them online at http://www.lowerloveday.com

This week's track: Problems by The DLX.  Problems is an R&B-leaning pop track from American artist The DLX, based in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.  No albums on Jamendo, but there are three singles you can check out.  I liked this one for its simple beat and lyrics.  Find out more about The DLX at the dlx dot net.

This week's track: Wild by The Rabbits.  Wild is a quiet folk track from "Tall Pines and Tangled Vines", a 2018 debut LP by The Rabbits.  The Rabbits hail from the UK, but are listed as Canadian on Jamendo - probably because they recorded their record at Orchid Studios in Vancouver, B-C - and they are also touring around Canada.  Apparently they're doing this from a van they've been living in for almost a year.  That's dedication to their music!  Follow them on Jamendo or at the rabbits dot com.

This week's track: Don't Wait by The Halt. What do you know - another track out of the US. This time, The Halt: a rock group that formed in 2017 featuring Neil Matharoo (from the band Soundstatues) and Andrew Schwartz, both from Brooklyn. They don't have any albums on Jamendo, but they do have four singles at the time of recording. Don't Wait is a good mix of alternative and grunge, leaning more on the alt rock spectrum. You can buy their music at the halt dot band camp dot com.

This week's track: Boomerang by HoneyChrome.  Boomerang is a great pop track, released in 2018 by an American artist, based on Brooklyn N-Y-C.  I find it really reminiscent of early 2000's pop, with a bit of eighties flair mixed in.  It's a fun, short track and well worth following to see what he comes out with for 2019!

This week's track: By Your Side by Cartel ft. Mallz & Deron Alek.  By Your Side is an exclusive track on Jamendo.com, another hip hop track just as good if not better than last week's track from Tab. 

The description of the track:

The problem of being "friends with benefits" is that eventually, someone catches feelings and wants to become more than what they are. Mallz and Deron Alek speak on just such a situation over a track by Hoodgrown Productions.
