Ok, so I’ve been gone for quite some time. You know how life is, you get busy and put things off yet they are never really forgotten! Today I had sometime to listen to Last.FM (which is an online streaming radio that I prefer over Pandora) and I heard a few new songs by some artists that I’m already into. I thought I’d share
1. Robyn… I like Robyn cause she makes songs that remind me of the times when you’re just chilling in your room doing nothing and thinking about boys. I can remember back in the day listening to her 1995 hit “Do You Know What It Takes”. It’s cool to see how she’s evolved. Check out this song called “Hang With Me”.
2. Regina Spektor… Who doesn’t like Regina Spektor?! The tone of her voice is soooo unique and I like that all her songs use quirky wordplay. What’s also awesome is that she has a tendency to seamlessly incorporate percussion sounds into her songs just by the way he picks and chooses when to enunciate. The first song I ever heard of hers was “Eet” which I loved but she definitely got me hooked when I heard “Hero” from the soundtrack of 500 Days of Summer. She may be old news to a lot of people but I’m still feeling her out. Here’s the newest one that I have on repeat. “Edit”
3. Imogen Heap…This girl from the UK is…… still ok in my book. I was listening to this song called “Hide and Seek”. It’s from 2005 and was recently sampled by Jason Derulo in “Whatcha Say”. I would have never put the two together but after listening to the whole song, the sample is such a small part of it that anyone who doesn’t know her music well would have not guessed that in a million years. The entire song is in auto tune. I think that is an interesting choice for this genre of music. Take a look!
4. Bat for Lashes…The lead singer Natasha Kahn is awesome! She’s really talented on the keys and has a really nice richness in her voice. This song makes me think of something from the old country in Britain. I’m just mystified and I like the lyrics alot. “Horse and I”.
Enjoy pleasuring your EARS!
