Greetings Kids —
I believe that the general consensus is that winter is the worst, but fear not, for a bountiful musical spring is forthcoming. Featuring new albums from a few of my favorite artists, including:
Death Cab for Cutie (Kintsugi, March 31st)
Sufjan Stevens (Carrie & Lowell, March 31st)
The Weepies (Sirens, April 28)
Purity Ring (Another Eternity, February 27th)
It’s going to be a great spring.
But without further ado, below are my current musical gems:
Wet – “I Don’t Wanna Be Your Girl”
I am obsessed with this band right now. Also check out their self-titled EP with other favorites “Dreams” and “No Lie.” Synth-themed, percussion heavy jams with ethereal vocals are kind of my digs. Check it out.
The Tree Ring – “Brushbloom Glow”
I found this artist through the 2013 gem Short Term 12. If you like Andrew Bird, you will probably like The Tree Ring.
Ella Eyre – “We Don’t Have To Take Our Clothes Off”
If you press play and think “huh, this is familiar.” Yes, this is in a Downy commercial. But it’s a really, really excellent cover. No hate.
TVÅ – “Keep Me A Secret”
A brother/sister duo from Stockholm. Also check out “Sensual.”
Panama Wedding – “Uma”
Good luck getting this song out of your head. But, trust, you won’t hate that it’s there.
