I know, I know. I haven’t blogged at all lately. Not making excuses, but I’m moving, and work is killing me. The good news is, there’s been all sorts of new music floating my way…so expect some blog goodness soon.
For now, though, I wanted to share this gorgeous tune that Passenger and Stu Larsen did on Balcony TV yesterday. Holy heck, I love Mike’s voice and his witty lyrics, and I’m now all about checking out Stu’s stuff. It’s mellow, but happy and a perfect way to get your Friday afternoon chill started off right.
If you dig Passenger’s sound, you should definitely pick up his latest album All the Little Lights. It’s ah-may-zing. It seems to have disappeared from iTunes and Amazon in the U.S. for download (thank goodness I bought it the day it came out!), but you can buy the import hard copy CD on Amazon still.
2012 is off to a tremendous start with lots of new music being released and/or announced. This week’s Sunday Funday playlist features new stuff from some old favorites…and one track from a new band that is soon to be a favorite. Happy Sunday!
1. “Over It” – Son of a Bad Man
It’s no secret how much I adore this little Jacksonville band. Their new album Here’s to the Falling In came out this week, and I’ve been completely obsessive about it. This song has gotten a redonculous number of plays. It’s upbeat and fun and I just love it. Unfortunately, it’s not on SoundCloud, so you’ll have to go over to iTunes to play the sample.
3. “Heart of Me” – Green River Ordinance
Another one of my favorite little pop-rock bands has a new album coming out in a couple of weeks. The GRO boys released the first single from their forthcoming album Under Fire for free download. Again, not on SoundCloud, but you can go pick it up here. It’s everything happy and wonderful I expect from these five sweethearts!
4. “Pretty Bones” – The Soldier Thread
New EP coming this week from one of my Austin favorites… My appetite for their music is insatiable. Can’t wait for it to arrive in my mailbox!
5. “Feather on the Clyde” – Passenger
There’s so much new music coming out in the next six weeks that I am over the moon. One of the new albums I’m looking forward to most is All the Little Lights from Passenger (pre-order it here). Christy turned me onto this Brit’s music a few years ago and I have been obsessive ever since. This will be one of the tracks…Mike’s voice is just so gorgeous. Puts my restless soul at ease right now.
