Music Break : Sam Roberts

Sam Roberts Band is a band I enjoy every time I hear them but I never think of them. There is that one song that has stayed with me..”Bridge to Nowhere”. Yes. That’s it. I’ll post that one too. What a great song! I hope you’re enjoying your day.

Music Break : The Head And The Heart

I’ve been using Google Play for a little over a month and I gotta say, so far, it’s pretty good. I like the similar artist feature and I love the ability to create my own music playlist, which can be played¬†offline. Sometimes I put on playlist recommended and created by Google Play and then I hear songs I might not have ever heard. For instance, The Head and the Heart’s “10,000 Weight In Gold”. Other than the crazy whiny dog noises, my ears were perked.

Music Break – James Iha

James Iha
What!? A MUSIC BREAK? It’s been like months. I know. Just shows how little new music I’ve been listening to.¬† But I saw on twitter this link and I got excited… www.pastemagazine.com

I was a big fan of James Iha back in the day. I’m liking the new stuff but his old album Let It Come Down has a special place in my heart.

Music Break – The Black Keys

The Black Keys - Brothers

The Black Keys, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, just released their latest album in May, 2010…although, it was already leaked, as so many albums do. The leaks must at times be intentional. The frequency is staggering! But back to TBK, this album got me excited again for bluesy rock jive. Let’s all have a listen today – Myspace/TheBlackKeys. This is for you, Nathan!

Watch their video for Tighten Up – http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=104927443

Music Break – Broken Bells

Broken Bells Music Break
Broken Bells is a collaborative musical experiment by Danger Mouse and James Mercer (of The Shins family). After (I don’t know how long after) an unforgettable meet and greet at a music festival in 2004, they shook hands and secretly created this album together, which was released just 6 months ago. It’s melodic, reminds me a bit of Air at times, and who doesn’t love Mercer’s voice?! Have a listen here, Mate – Myspace/brokenbells/
