Don’t have time to check the podcast out? Here are the Top 5.
5. “All the Same”-Buffalo Rodeo
With a sound reminiscent of Kings of Leon, this band fronted by WKU freshman Zach Preston is well on their way to make a splash nationally.
4. “Eyes The Same”-Morning Teleportation
These psychedelic rockers take listeners on a ride with beautiful lyrics and a dream-like sound that’s hard to resist.
3. “Love Blood”-Sleeper Agent
The band’s infectious, energetic sound is at display here. The chemistry between Tony Smith and Alex Kandel is pure music bliss as they quip back and forth about love.
2. “Cystalline”-Morning Teleportation
With heartfelt vocals and a roller-coaster sounds, this tune will be stuck in your head for days.
1. “Shake Me Down”-Cage The Elephant
Matt Shultz and Co. have helped pave the way for the Bowling Green music scene. The reason for their buzz is evident in this nostalgic punk song about life’s many depressing aspects. However, as Shultz sings in the chorus, he “keeps his eyes fixed on the sun”.
