Been a while since I’ve posted, but here are my three latest examples of musicyoushouldhear:
1) Citizen Cope – “Somehow” from the album “Every Waking Moment”. This is the best album I have heard in some time. A little bit of everything. Hear also “John Lennon” (the two songs blends together on the album, it’s awesome), and the title track “Every Waking Moment”.
2) Ray Lamontagne – “You Are the Best Thing”, from the album “Gossip in the Grain”. Great song by a guy whose (slightly abridged) biography can be found in a recent post. This is my current favorite song by him, but they are all good. Also, as you can see he kind of looks like Zach Galifianakis (Alan from The Hangover).
3) Neutral Milk Hotel – “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea”, from the album of the same name. These guys have been around for decades but have never quite achieved the status I think they deserve. Really interesting lyrics with catchy tunes and unorthodox instrumentation (listen for the theremin). Also check out “Ghost”, on the same album.
These 3 are pretty laid back, but not to worry, there will be facemelters to come…
