Tuesday’s Tunes

A day late….

Remember garbage from the 90s? Remember Shirley Manson and how we all wanted to be her? Well, I do, and boy did I ever want to be her. Remember this cover of Details magazine? Need I say more… Well, garbage have a new album coming on in May and you can download their new single here. I dig it. I dig it a lot.

I love this video from Nite Jewel. Makes me think Desperate Housewives meets Eyes Wide Shut.

This song by Aluna George is just heavenly.

And I know this is an oldie but it makes me happy. I love Miami Horror. And it is so fitting for the lovely weather we are beginning to have. Yay spring!

Tuesday’s Tunes

Sorry, I was absent for Tuesday’s Tunes last week. I have no excuse. I apologize.

This week I’m just going to focus on one thing.

The lovely Fiona Apple. She announced the title of her upcoming album.

The Idler Wheel is wiser than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords will serve you more than Ropes will ever do.

I wouldn’t expect anything else but amazing from her. I was first introduced to her when I was 16.  I saw her on 120 Minutes. My weekly ritual was recording 120 Minutes every week, watching it throughout the week, taking notes on new artists. I had a rough time in high school. Fiona Apple really spoke to me.

And each album following just resinated inside me. It was as if they came out at just the right moment in my life that I needed a certain guidance. Sounds silly, but that girl really has a voice and I’ve been hearing it loud and clear for many years. And the announcement of her new album just sheds a light that I believe will never burn out.

Thank you, Miss Fiona. Keep singing. I’m listening, loud and clear. And so is Zalyn.

So, I will leave you with a few of my favorites by her. Although it’s pretty hard to narrow it down to just a few.

Never is a Promise makes me cry every time I hear it. Still.

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…
