This is simply awesome. 1000 musicians play “Learn to Fly” by the Foo Fighters in an attempt to get the band to travel to Cesena, Italy for a concert. And, it worked. Video is below and Dave Grohl’s reaction can be found HERE via Consequence of Sound.

Ray LaMontagne has dropped a second track off his upcoming album, Supernova. This one titled “Airwaves” is much more calming and relaxing from “Supernova,” the first single that dropped last month.

New Music: Thelma Plum – “Around Here”

3 Jul

It’s a good day for new music so why not share my latest obsession, Thelma Plum.  Personally I think you’re going to fall in love with her sweet and soulful sound, just like I did.  The 18 year old is the latest gem to blossom out of Australia and I suggest you give a listen to her EP, Rosie, immediately but in the mean time, give a listen below to “Around Here.”

 

New Music: Zach Heckendorf – “All The Right Places”

25 Apr

Let’s chalk singer-songwriter Zach Heckendorf as a name to keep an eye on.  He has played to thousands at Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater and has shared stages with John Butler Trio, Rodrigo y Gabriella, Brandi Carlile, Guster, Mat Kearney, Barenaked Ladies, and is slated to open for Michael Franti this summer! Plus his record, The Cool Down, he recorded with Brett Dennen.  Not too shabby for a 19-year old.

 

New Music: Alex Clare – “Too Close” aka Microsoft Internet Explorer Song

27 Mar

If you’ve seen the new Microsoft Internet Explorer commercials and wondered what that song is that you find yourself enamored with, it’s “Too Close” by Alex Clare.  Yes, me, a person who is not a fan of dubstep actually enjoys this track.  But really it is the soulful voice of the British singer-songwriter throughout his record, The Lateness Of The Hour, that has me constantly listening to the disc that dabs all over from soul, dubstep, electronic and jazz.  Personally I dig “Hands Are Clever,” “I Love You” and “Whispering” plus he covers Prince’s “When Doves Cry” but what really is a HUGE bonus on the record is it was produced by Diplo and Switch aka Major Lazer.  How wicked awesome is that!
