DoYouHearTheMusic.com – Top Tracks of 2013 (well a good amount of them)

2 Dec

Thanksgiving gave me a minute to sit back and have a little fun putting together a Top Tracks of 2013 playlist.  This clearly doesn’t include all of the great music that has filtered our ears this year but it is a collection of music that has been on rotation for me in 2013.   I tried not to duplicate artists (I could have gone on for days with whole albums from the likes of Vampire Weekend, Cayucas, White Denim, Bastille, etc.) so I hope you like this playlist which should keep you going for hours and perfect for some holiday road trips.

 

Cheers!

 

 

Now Playing: Jon Fratelli – “Rhythm Doesn’t Make You A Dancer”

27 Jan

New music from Jon Fratelli formerly of The Fratellis and Codeine Velvet Club.

The Fratellis – The Goonies???

10 Sep

If you remember the Amstel Light commercial from a couple years back, then you know The Fratellis as it featured their song “Chelsea Dagger” which was also the Chicago Blackhawks’ theme song during their Stanley Cup season this past year and I highly suggest you pick up their discs, Costello Music and Here We Stand. “Chelsea Dagger” which is on Costello Music is one of my favorite CDs to date and it came out in 2006. Amid rumors that the Glasgow, Scotland band has broken up and while the fellas are each working on side projects (more posts on this coming soon) I’m going to keep my fingers crossed that they do put out another record soon. We need more of The Fratellis.

And yes, they named the band after The Fratellis from the movie, The Goonies although their bassist Barry Fratelli’s (born Barry Wallace) mother’s maiden name was Fratelli as well.
