Recent Music Purchases II
Last August I wrote a post about some of the singles I had purchased online. In that comment thread there were some great song suggestions. For instance I first learned about Miike Snow from BTD Greg in that thread and I’m a big fan of that band now. So I figured I would go for a follow up post in hopes of getting some good suggestions again this Summer. I’ve titled this sequel post “Recent Music Purchases” because I am finding myself buying whole albums on iTunes and Amazon pretty regularly too and I didn’t want to miss highlights from those albums.
Anyhow, here are some highlights from the music I have purchased since last August.
Rogue Wave — Lake Michigan — A Pandora find that I think is really cool.
Sugar and Gold — Sometimes — One of those obscure Pandora finds that stays with you.
Black Sheep — The Choice is Yours (Revisited) – That commercial with the hamsters reminded me of this cool early nineties song so I bought it.
Lords of the Underground — Funky Child — This was a Pandora find. Another cool early 90s hip hop song.
Rooney — When Did Your Heart Go Missing? — This alt/pop band can be a little cheesy at time but their catchy tunes are a guilty pleasure.
The Slackers — Dave’s Friend — Who knew ska and country could meld so seamlessly? This one delivers the hypnoticky goodness.
Matt and Kim — Daylight — Probably a one hit wonder (if this qualifies as a hit). But one hit is better than none. Super catchy.
Ok there are more but I’ll stop there. What cool music have you purchased lately? (Include YouTube or similar links in your comments! )
