#WhatchaListeningTo Wednesday 1/30/13

Here's what I'm listening to this week - 
  • Imagine Dragons - Radioactive - a nice juxtaposition to "It's Time"; it shows what else this band is capable of giving listeners.  I'm certainly pickin' up what they're puttin' down.
  • Wilco - Dawned On Me - "I've been lost/ I've been found/ I've been taken/ by the sound/ My own worries/ and voices in my head..."
  • Brett Dennen - Closer To You - I love when artists put out these raw, real videos and allow the natural sound of the location where they're shooting the video to come through.
  • Travis - Selfish Jean - I like the comedian Demetri Martin.  I like this song.  Demetri Martin is in the video. It's all coming together.
  • Milo Greene - 1957 - I love the story behind the band name just as much as I am loving getting to know this band's music. They made a short film to accompany their album.  Dreamy, cinematic, indie pop... who do you think they sound like?
So, #WhatchaListeningTo?

#WhatchaListeningTo Wednesday 1/23/13

Here's what I'm listening to this week:

  • A Silent Film - Harbour Lights - They're pretty great live, as I featured a few weeks ago
  • Macklemore and Ryan Lewis - Thrift Shop - Dance. 
    • Bonus - "Same Love", the first track from this NPR Tiny Desk Concert/All Songs Considered segment - not the safest for tiny ears, but my boyfriend suggested I check it out, and I'm glad I did.  Check it, yo.
  • Keane - Sovereign Light Cafe - something from Keane I haven't heard before.
  • Alpha Rev - Sing Loud  - a beautiful, driving beat and a sweet song.  I'd love to see Alpha Rev someday.
  • Capital Cities - Safe and Sound - I'm hearing a touch of City and Colour here, anyone else?

So, #WhatchaListeningTo?
