ITS FINALLY HERE! The crew at 2AM Club has finally released their first single of their much anticipated new album. Tell me you can’t imagine this being the song of the summer this year? It will definitely be the song you hear on the radio and in the clubs in the coming months. Check it out here first and spread the word!
Also, add it to your Spotify playlist or pick it up on iTunes!
That’s the term some use to describe the hypnotic beats of English band The xx. It’s hard to argue, although I think I would probably replace “pop” with “rock”, but either way its great music, a great band and their 2012 album Coexist was one of the best of the year. Check them performing “Angels” live st Seattle’s KEXP radio station. They sound just as good live as on the album. Let me know what you think!
One of my favorite romantic songs ever. Unfortunately they made a cheeseball video for this beautiful track, so close your eyes as you listen, but even the video can’t ruin the timeless beauty of “This Years Love” by David Gray.
Its well documented that Muse is my favorite band in the world. I think their creativity in unparalleled, they write, arrange and produce their own music, and they seamlessly mix a variety of influences into their albums from hard rock to metal, trance, classical and punk. To me its perfect!
Their latest album came out a few weeks ago and to me it is fantastic. They didn’t just make more of the same, they tried new things and I think succeeded. Check out this video below, its a behind the scenes look at their making 3 tracks off their new album The Second Law, and they just so happen to be my 3 favorite track: “Madness”, “Big Freeze” and “Explorers”.
I hope you enjoy them like I do!
Check this track out called”Never Forget You” by Noisettes off their 2009 album Wild Young Hearts. Be forewarned, the track is infectious and you will probably have this feel-good tune stuck in your head for a while after listening. While this London band skews more indie/punk rock, this song brings you back to the doo wop feel good era of music. Enjoy and let me know what you think!
While “Danza Kuduro” came out in 2010 you would be hard pressed to not hear this track at some point while out and about in Spain to this day. This dance floor staple by Puerto Rican Don Omar was a #1 hit across pretty much all Latin charts and contains both Spanish and Portuguese elements only helping to make this song a massive international hit. Personally, I whistled this song for about a week straight while in Spain, so now I hope its gets stuck (or restuck) in your head.
Its a bold promise, but the funny thing about this song is even without knowing what she is singing in Danish, you can still enjoy the song and get whats going on here. The song is by Medina who won Best Danish Artist honors at both the 2009 and 2011 MTV European Music Awards. I was put on to this track while in Copenhagen this summer where she is pretty much their version of Britney Spears. This track is called “Kl. 10″ and I dare you not to enjoy it
Well not really, but I did put some of my pictures and videos from my Euro Trip this summer to the sounds of Sigur Ros’ “Hoppipola”. If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out. You can also see what 7 hours of me and iMovie produces. (not too impressive!) haha
British pop/post punk rock band The Kooks came on the scene in 2005, and unfortunately (or fortunately depending how you look at it) their debut album debuted on the same day as the much anticipated monster debut album of another Brit band, The Arctic Monkeys. That allowed The Kooks to travel under the radar for some time but not too long as their album of catchy songs wouldnt go unnoticed for long. They eventually top the charts in the UK and Ireland and won the MTV Europe Music Award for best UK/Ireland band in 2006.
This track has made its way on to my Summer 2012 mix because its just such a feel good song. Its called “Naive” and is off that debut album. Check it!
LOVE THIS! My favorite band MUSE just released a teaser for their upcoming September release of their new album titled “The 2nd Law”. This faux movie trailer encompasses everything MUSE is about so I cant wait to hear some new tracks of it. Check out the trailer…pretty cool.
