New Tunes

I’ve probably listened to this album 25 times the past week. And that’s not an exaggeration. A friend of a friend manages this duo. The voices of this husband and wife team match and compliment each other perfectly.

It’s going to be impossible for you to listen to this without nodding your head, singing along, tapping your toes, etc. Go ahead and try:


Take a listen to their other songs here. Or just go ahead and buy the album. Just do it now.

Music You Need This Summer

It hit 90 degrees here today which means it’s summer. It’s time for some new tunes while you lay out and soak up the sun. Here are two albums you need this summer. I highly recommend both:

Artist: Jesse Morrow
Album: Things I Might Lose

This guy is talented (and I’m not just saying that because he’s a friend from Washington). His new album, Things I Might Lose, is full of strong beats that will have you nodding your head in a heartbeat. The mix of blues with crazy good guitar and keys melodies is such a good, unique sound. My favorites from the album are ‘Locked’ (the opening is killer on this) and ‘Best Shot.’

Artist: Matrimony
Album: Montibello Road

This Charlotte band caught my ears a few years ago when they opened for John Mark McMillan. Their unique folksy sound is so much fun. Even though there are only 4 songs on their newest EP, each one is full of life and will make your ears quite happy. Favorites from the album are the ‘Obey Your Guns’ (I promise you’ll be hearing this on the radio soon) and the haunting ‘Giant.’

Music You Need This Summer

What you should be listening to right now.

Y’all. Some amazing music has come out the past few weeks. I don’t even know where to start. I’m only going to list three (for now), so that you’re not too overwhelmed. Here we go…

1. Born and Raised – John Mayer

Even with all the good tunes floating out there right now, this album has definitely been played the music. At first I thought it was a little too country, but it grew on me and I can’t stop listening. It is a soothing album full of remarkably sweet notes. Favorites from the album are Queen of California, Something Like Olivia, and Walt Grace’s Submarine Test.

2. Loveblood – King Charles

I’m not sure how to describe this guy. He is so fun. I first heard him live when he opened for Mumford & Sons in Vancouver. He was wearing a ridiclous outift and his hair was insanely tall. And his music was just as good as his stage appearence. Favorites fromthe album are The Brightest Lights (with Mumford) and Love Lust. Enjoy!

3. Here – Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes

This massive band is eclectic to the max. I think there are like 15 members in the band and somehow they don’t overpower your ears…it al comes together for a somewhat simple and lovely sound. They have an old-soul sound that I’m really liking right now. Favorites from the album are Man on Fire and Dear Believer.

That’s it for now. I’ll be back soon with some pictures from my parent’s visit a month or so ago!
