Hey guys,hadn't discovered too much new music lately,or good music I should say so I've been holding off on typing this collection of what I'm listening to until now.Here we go,the selections aren't tooo amazing.
First up we have "Heartbeat" by Childish Gambino. Its off his newest album "Camp" and its actually one of the best rap songs I've heard in awhile. The lyrics are honest,about real life struggles,and can be related to. All over a pounding beat,this makes for a great tune.
Next up is "Some Nights Intro/Some Nights" off of Fun's new upcoming album of the same name. The intro is amazing, and could be a stand alone song if they wanted it to be. Some Nights is a great tune that shows off the singers vocal skill. you'd be crazy not to check out this band.
Next is a track you probably haven't heard before, its "The Mistake" by AM Taxi. The video won some sort of contest for MTV a few years ago, and I saw it in tv and loved it. Its doesn't sound like it was recorded in a studio, more like a basement. But it gives it a really cool vibe. Cool rock jam.
"Little Talks" by Of Monsters and Men is a cool little tune that has an awesome video that goes along with it. Their an indie rock band, and have a unique sound to them. I suggest checking out their new EP 'Into the Woods'
A track from Mumford and Sons has surfaced, possibly one that will be on the upcoming album,and I absolutely love it. Its a very slow song, but its powerful and really draws you in. Slow burner.
Throwback. John Mayer's "Born and Raised" is dropping this year with the first single already being leaked, but this got me listening to his older material material. My pick from him this week is "Stop This Train". I love John's guitar work and especially his lyrics in this song as he sings "so scared of getting old i'm only good at being young" which I agree with and fear so much as well. Rock on Mr. Mayer.
Next is an electronic song by Nero called "Me and You". Very cool buildup, with dubstep beats pounding in the background as she sings "are you ready? do you know?". Super fun tune
One last track for this week, "Let's Roll" by American rapper Yelawolf featuring Kid Rock. Wasn't expecting to like this, but I really Kid Rock's vocals in this, and Yela is a pretty good rapper,although he's a bit too redneck for me.
