For each episode and song they create, this organization travels the world and finds music students, artists and children to participate in creating one song all pieced together from small parts each person preforms. The finished art work […]

Looking Too Closely by Fink

Fink – “Looking Too Closely” – Fink comes to us from the UK and I was lucky enough to stumble upon these gents while watching a TV show.  Before Fink actually became a band, the lead singer was a very successful electronic/dance DJ on the European scene in the early 2000’s. In the early stages […]

Love You Good by Marmozets

“Love You Good” is buried ten tracks into the album, but I guess that’s not really a fair statement since there are plenty of good songs throughout the 13 tracks. I thought this was a fairly straightforward track that had a decent introduction to the band. This is not a record you put on when […]

Waiting on Words by The Black Keys

TBK “Waiting On Words” – Auerbach brings the falsetto out again at the beginning of this song, which has some nice subtle guitar work early on.  The main riff is timeless sounding, and adds a lot of emotion to the song.  This may be one of the most melancholy songs on the album.  You can […]

Hotel Anywhere by Cold War Kids

“Hotel Anywhere” is a bouncier tune, driven by Maust’s bass line.  It starts off big right from the get go, drums, guitar and the bass firing on all cylinders, along with some nice keyboard accents.  This is much more of an anthem song, with a big U2-esque chorus.  It’s fun to listen to and I […]

Here With Me by Susie Suh & Robot Koch

Susie Suh & Robot Koch – “Here With Me” – I’ve had this song listed as a song to share with the group since last year, but I kept passing it up to share other artist.  Part of the reason I kept passing it by, is because there really isn’t much information about Susie Suh […]

Baby Don’t Lie by Gwen Stefani

Baby Don’t Lie by Gwen Stefani I have been a Gwen Stefani fan since “Trapped in a box” emerged as No Doubt’s first single. Needless to say I have been watching the evolution of this artist for over two decades! Which is why I am more than pleased with the delivery of sound occurring on […]

“I (Love Myself)” by Kendrick Lamar

I provided a Kendrick Lamar track I think midway through last year (Poetic Justice). The track I’m providing you today comes from Kendrick’s upcoming album, which is set to be released later this year. I rarely provide hip-hop tracks to the group, due to the nature of the lyrical content, but it is a genre […]

Something from Nothing by Foo Fighters

Something from Nothing by Foo Fighters Dave Grohl starts off this song with a familiar guitar strum, the plucking of his cord can mean only one thing: Foo Fighters are back! You would think by the melodic intro to this song that Dave had gone soft in his sound evolution. By the second chorus you […]

Hey Boy by Goapele

Oh my goodness! Goapele is back! “Hey Boy” has just that something special that his been missing from R&B for a while–funk, soul, love, and of course a voice of a bell. This track will have you tapping your toes by the last beat. Her fun lyrics, demeanor and sound on this track really has […]
