Someone You Should Know About

You all know my love of music… well I have someone I have to recommend, and you can’t find her stuff on iTunes yet, but it will only be a matter of time. Lindsey Lee, is from my hometown and has gone to Tennessee to pursue her music career. She has a beautiful voice, writes her own stuff, and we will hopefully be hearing it all soon on the radio… Well, hearing it more. Recently she was featured on a radio show from home (you can find it on her website.)

So go on over to her music homepage, and give it a listen, I promise you won’t regret it!

Music Monday:: V.V. Brown

I honestly don’t remember how I stumbled upon this artist, all I know is that I am glad I did. V.V. Brown has been immensely popular in England for some time now, but only recently has her music made it over the pond to the U.S.

From what I can tell, she only has one album released (at least in the U.S.) aside from a few EPs.

Traveling Like the Light has several really great songs, the most notable in my opinion is Back in Time. I love the beat.

1 Quick Fix
2 Game Over
3 Shark in the Water
4 Leave!
5 Bottles
6 Crying Blood
7 Back in Time
8 I Love You
9 L.O.V.E.
10 Everybody
11 Crazy Amazing
12 Traveling Like the Light

I also highly recommend Shark in the Water, L.O.V.E, and Leave!

Keep an eye out for V.V. Brown, I am sure there will be more good work coming from her soon!

Music Monday:: MuteMath

Over the past year I have slowly come to appreciate and love MuteMath. It was always one of those bands that was recommended to me but I could never manage to become interested in. I wish I could say there was a particular song that instigated this change of mind, but there isn’t.

Their first album, MuteMath has one of my all time favorites:: Typical

1 Collapse
2 Typical
3 After We Have Left Our Homes
4 Chaos
5 Noticed
6 Plan B
7 Stare At The Sun
8 Obsolete
9 Break The Same
10 You Are Mine
11 Control
12 Picture
13 Stall Out
14 Reset

Their music has a very original sound, and their videos have a very original look::

Their second full album was just recently released, Armistice.

1 The Nerve
2 Backfire
3 Clipping
4 Spotlight
5 No Response
6 Pins and Needles
7 Goodbye
8 Odds
9 Electrify
10 Armistice
11 Lost Year
12 Burden
13 Architecture

My favorite tracks from this album are Electrify, Spotlight, and Odds.

Many may recognize MuteMath from their song Spotlight which is in the very popular movie Twilight.

A little known fact about MuteMath, and something that sets them apart from other bands is their use of a Fender Rhodes Mark I piano. Lends a different sound to the music.

Music Monday: Deas Vail

I stumbled upon this group not too long ago and fell in love.

The first song I heard was Birds and I cannot say enough about the music or the lyrics. It is from this album, their most recent:

Some of my favorites: The Things you Were, Excuses, and of course, Birds.

They also have another album before this one:

While I haven’t listened to much from this album, I love Shoreline, Standing…, and Rewind.

Their music is great, go listen to Birds!!!

Music Monday: Amos Lee

Amos Lee’s music is listed as anything from folk, soul to pop. The first song I stumbled across was Colors. Slow soulful song, which then caused me to look into the rest of his music which is just as good.

His self titled album, Amos Lee:

Keep it Loose, Keep it Tight

Seen it all Before

Arms of a Woman

Give it Up

Dreamin’

Soul Suckers

Colors

Bottom of the Barrel

Black River

Love in the Lies

All My Friends

Out of these, I absolutely love Colors and Arms of a Woman. But then I can’t help but recommend Black River, and Keep it Loose, Keep it Tight.

His next album was Supply and Demand:

Which brings us Southern Girl… and how could I not love that song?

Finally, his newest album Last Days at the Lodge:

Listen

Won’t Let me Go

Baby I Want You

Truth

Whats Been Going On

Street Corner Preacher

It Started to Rain

Jails & Bombs

Kid

Ease Back

Better Days

I can’t say enough about What’s Been Going On. Such a great song. But Won’t Let me Go, and Baby I Want You are even more reasons to listen to this unique voice.

Music Monday’s:: Kings of Leon

Many of you may recognize Kings of Leon from Use Somebody and Sex on Fire. These songs have been immensely popular lately on the radio. However, they have many more songs that deserve recognition as well. Which is why I decided to talk about them today.

Their latest album is Only by the Night:

Closer
Crawl
Sex on Fire
Use Somebody
Manhattan
Revelry
17
Notion
I Want you
Be Somebody
Cold Desert

Make a point of listening to Revelry and Notion. In my opinion they are far better than Sex on Fire and Use Somebody.

While many only know the songs from their latest album, they also have several others albums, my favorite being Aha Shake Heartbreak.

Slow Night, So Long
King of the Rodeo
Taper Jean Girl
Pistol of Fire
Milk
The Bucket
Soft
Razz
Day Old Blues
Four Kicks
Velvet Snow
Rememo

In regards to this album, I love Taper Jean Girl, The Bucket, Pistol of Fire, and Slow Night, So Long.

Check out the rest of their music, there is so much more out there than what they play on the radio, and it is exceptional!
