Tuesdays Tunes

I’m back! And what a way to kick things back into gear with a special Tuesday Tunes. I’ll first start out with some newbies:

This song by First Person Shootr is so hypnotizing. I’m in love.

The lineup for Bonnaroo was announced today. My facebook feed was flooded with people posting about it. It’s a pretty good lineup. Beach Boys? How awesome is that?

I was recently informed that Zola Jesus is coming to St. Louis. Pretty excited about this show. I posted about her here.

Remember when I mentioned that Fiona Apple is working on a new record? Well, Pitchfork announced today that she will be playing their showcase at SXSW this year. Just a little bit closer to a real tour and an amazing record! So stoked for this comeback.

Here’s another girlie goodie for ya. EMA has a beautiful sound. She, too, is coming to St. Louis this spring.

Currently playing on repeat. This new track by Charli XCX

And since today is Valentines Day, how about a few of my favorite love songs. Sure, why not. ( I tried to make a playlist of all of them so you can enjoy them but not all of them were available. Sorry about that. Take my word for it, these are goodies. ) But I will tell you, it was hard to narrow it down to a short list. I just randomly picked some of my favorites. What are some of your favorite love songs?

Sondre Lerche- Let My Love Open The Door

Rise Against!- Swing Life Away

Goldfrapp- Number One

The Go Find- Forever in Your Eyes

Beth Orton- Anywhere

Tahiti 80- Your Love Shines

Bright Eyes- First Day of My Life

Bloc Party- Blue Light

Lauryn Hill- Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You

Tegan and Sara- This is Everything

Onelinedrawing- Smile

Tuesday’s Tunes

I’m so excited to be telling you what I heard… Fiona Apple is finally releasing a new album. Epic records CEO L.A. Reid confirmed via Twitter that in the next few weeks, new music by her will be released. I can’t even tell you all how excited I am for this!!!!

I’m a pretty big Hip Hop fan. But I will tell you that I am very picky about hip hop. I like hip hop to have an old school feel to it. Soulful. THEESatisfaction is something I’m really digging right now.

Mansions on the Moon is a band I discovered today.

I have the Band a Day app on my phone and todays band is Rubblebucket. I like them a lot. It kinda reminds me of new school ska but way more soulful and fun.

Cursive have a new album coming out next month. I love Cursive. I listened to them a lot when I lived in New York. They bring back a lot of memories for me.

Makes me sad when good musicians call it quits:

What are some good bands/songs/albums I should check out?

Tuesday’s Tunes

Zalyn wanted in on the Tuesday search for tunes…

So, I have a quite a few goodies for you today….

Sleigh Bells have a new album coming out in February.

I’m a HUGE Mos Def fan. I just absolutely adore him. His music, his acting. Every little thing about him. This is his new project. I’m incredibly excited for it.

I’m loving Nite Jewel 

Tanlines is a band I discovered in the summer of 2010. They have a new album coming out March 20. What I’ve heard from it is amazing.

This song by MNDR is soooo good. Her new new album is expected to be released this summer.

Tuesday’s Tunes

Back when I worked at record stores in my twenties, Tuesday was my favorite day of the week. New Music day. So, to inspire me to keep up with my music obsession, I’m going to devote just a few moments of my day each Tuesday to find a new artist/song/band.

Come along with me. It’ll be a musical journey.

So, first and foremost. There’s this AMAZING compilation put together by Blonde Redhead to benefit the victims of the 2011 Tsunami in  Japan. It’s a beautiful collaboration of some of the best artists out there. Check it out here.

Three artist’s to check out:

Memoryhouse

White Car

The Weeknd

Now enjoy this absolutely beautiful and stunning song. I’m melting…. I just adore this song…
