Take a Listen to Andy Hull’s New Song “When I Met Death”

Frontman of Manchester Orchestra, Andy Hull, has a new solo album that was released today. Rolling Stone is letting you listen and download the track “When I Met Death” for free. 

It’s a magnification song. I’ve had it on repeat for the last 30 minutes, so I thought I’d share it with you all.

Hull has also released some Midwest and East Coast dates. Enjoy! [Read more...]

“Middle of the Bed” by Lucy Rose

I’m a sucker for a woman with a beautiful, unique singing voice. I always have been. I’m sure I always will be. And now I have another such voice to enjoy listening to: Lucy Rose’s.

Below is the video for her song “Middle of the Bed.” It’s a good though unremarkable song made wonderful by her intoxicating vocals.

Official song and video for “I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz not even close to live version

Yes, I realize that Jason Mraz hasn’t qualified for “indie” status for a long, long time now. Still, he’s one of my favorite musicians, but not because of the songs that end up on his albums; Mraz is among my favorites because unlike so many pop musicians, whose talent is actually less than what it seems, his talent is far, far beyond what ends up on his albums and singles. I’ve always thought this having listened to many live versions of his songs, and seeing him live solidified it for me.

The latest example is the difference between his live performance of “I Won’t Give Up” and the video and studio version of the song that came out today.

“I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz

Jason Mraz has been one of my favorite artists since his first album came out. I’ve gotten every one since, seen one of his incredible live performances, and wait with baited breath for new songs.

I found one tonight, and I’m happy to share it with you. It’s predictably awesome in Mraz’s typical sublimely sung and earnest way.

“Somebody That I Used To Know” by Gotye

This one will remind you of Sting a little bit, and the I enjoyed the unique idea for the video. It’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” by Gotye, and while many of you have probably heard of this Belgian-Austrian singer-songwriter (in fact, the video below has 10 million views), I hadn’t until seeing this post at Lost at E Minor.

“Look” by Sebastien Tellier

If I were to describe the video for the song “Look” by Sebastien Tellier in one word, that word would be: asstounding. 

And while I realize that this isn’t really a word, once you watch the video you’ll know exactly why I chose it.

“Love Is All” by The Tallest Man On Earth

Kudos to the folks at Lost at E Minor for this find. The song is called “Love Is All” by The Tallest Man On Earth (aka Kristian Matsson). As they mention in their write up, his voice is quite unique and provides an interesting juxtaposition to the delicate strumming of the guitar. Very good, emotive song, and the video is good too.

“Dreams/My Rope” by Stephen Hefter

Just caught this track by Stephen Hefter (aka St. Even) over at Indie Rock Cafe. I love the line: “Sometimes I’m sorry that I make friends with old lovers; Sometimes I’m sorry that I make love with old friends.”

Have a listen:
