I have so much music sitting on my desktop right now. It is insane. A lot of the time I find new music or get a mp3 in an email and download it to my desktop so that I have it there to listen whenever I get a chance. However what happens is I find more and more and never get around to listening to it so it just builds up as clutter. Well I have finally tried to clean things up so that my Kristen Stewart background can actually see the light of day!
I deleted many of the songs that I received via email. Those promoters sure know how to make their artists sound better than they actually are. However there are plenty of great finds that resulted in my massive mp3 hunt. Lets get started shall we?? ::
- Stillness Is The Move is a brand new track from the highly regarded Brooklyn band (god I feel like I write about a Brooklyn band once a day!). They are known for their unique arrangements and sound. Some people don’t get them, but if you really dig deep you can find some mind blowing stuff in their catalogue. This song just sounds so organic and pure. Great stuff.
Here is another track to demonstrate the genius that Dirty Projectors are capable of:
[mp3] : Dirty Projectors – No More
[mp3] : And The Moneynotes – Bolinda
- And The Moneynotes are a very cool band from Scranton, Pennsylvania. I saw them open for The Spinto Band/Rural Alberta Advantage last Sunday and was pleasantly surprised. This track Bolinda was a memorable track that sounds like a callback to the days of swing with some Americana and whiskey mixed in there. They cover dozens of different genres in one track, which is quite a feat. This track just has a really fun vibe that brings out the inner r&b child in us all. This is infectious as shit!
[mp3] : Junior Boys – Hazel
Junior Boys always have crafted really chill electro-pop that you simply cannot resist. The newest album from the duo of Jeremy Greenspan and Matthew Didemus is nothing short of fantastic from what I’ve heard. Those vocals are all so passionate!
This song to me, is 10x better than Rehab. When Arctic Monkeys covered it, it made my love for the song even greater. She may be a mess in real life, but in the studio she lays down some killer r&b.
