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!

Most of you already know how much I love Maroon 5, so it should be no surprise that this recommendation is for their new single. ‘Misery’ is the first song released from their new album to be released in September. If you haven’t heard it yet go check it out!
Artwork from Maroon5 online.
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
6 Crying Blood
7 Back in Time
8 I Love You
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!
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
3 After We Have Left Our Homes
6 Plan B
7 Stare At The Sun
9 Break The Same
10 You Are Mine
13 Stall Out
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
5 No Response
6 Pins and Needles
11 Lost Year
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.
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!!!
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
Bottom of the Barrel
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:
Won’t Let me Go
Baby I Want You
Whats Been Going On
Street Corner Preacher
It Started to Rain
Jails & Bombs
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.
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:
Sex on Fire
I Want you
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
Day Old Blues
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!
