Song of the Day: Unsteady by X Ambassadors

Music is at its best when the lyrics and the actual notes¬†can instantly stir up emotions. Maybe I am just more in tune to songs/feelings/sentiments at certain times in life, but Unsteady by X Ambassadors is the tune that makes me stop every time I hear it. X Ambassadors recently hit mainstream media when their song “Renegade” was featured in a Jeep commercial. I got … Continue reading Song of the Day: Unsteady by X Ambassadors

Cool Tune Tuesday- A Taste of Silver – UTRB

I can’t work when it is quiet so constantly have something playing, listening to music all day long. Every once in awhile a song instantly grabs my attention and I stop working and see who it is. ¬†That happened just now with ¬†A Taste of Silver by the band Until the Ribbon Breaks. I immediately listened to it 5 times in a row and sought … Continue reading Cool Tune Tuesday- A Taste of Silver – UTRB

Track of the Day: Sedona by Houndmouth

Enjoy. Watch the video here. Houndmouth: FACEBOOK | TWITTER | WEBSITE |¬†Order Little Neon Limelight on Itunes   Continue reading Track of the Day: Sedona by Houndmouth

Track of the Day: Ready by Kodaline

Who’s ready for the weekend? ¬†Who’s ready to not be at work? ¬†ME! ME! ME! Today’s track of the day comes from Irish rockers Kodaline. ¬†I first heard them in 2012 when their song “All I Want” hit the British charts. ¬†The video (s)¬†¬†made me cry and the song was eventually featured in Google’s 2012 Year In Review (which is a wicked cool thing I … Continue reading Track of the Day: Ready by Kodaline

Track of the Day: The Ground Walks with Time in a Box by Modest Mouse

After taking 8 years off, Modest Mouse is back, releasing Stranger to Ourselves last week. ¬†They have such a distinctive sound, thanks to lead singer Issac’s Brock voice which is at once stilty and ¬†smooth. ¬†And while the first two singles that were released are classic Modest Mouse, I like this one because it is a bit funkier with¬†this great base line with echos of … Continue reading Track of the Day: The Ground Walks with Time in a Box by Modest Mouse

Track of the Day: 5 Years Time by Noah and the Whale

This is not a new song, but¬†every once in awhile you need to hear a happy go-lucky song with a ukele. ¬†And as someone with an active imagination I really appreciate the lines: Although maybe all these moments are just in my head I’ll be thinking ‚Äėbout them as I’m lying in bed And all that I believe, it might not even come true But … Continue reading Track of the Day: 5 Years Time by Noah and the Whale

Track of the Day: Northern Lights by Kate Boy

My obsession with Swedish¬†music is apparently continuing into 2015, this time with Kate Boy. ¬†Though the lead singer is an Ausssie (and freaking GORGEOUS), the rest of the band hails from Stockholm. ¬†They recently played¬†SXSW and even got a “best of” mention from Spin.com. ¬†They are electro-pop at its finest with shades of New Order and Depeche Mode and I am really digging them. ¬†If … Continue reading Track of the Day: Northern Lights by Kate Boy

So Art and Raylan head out to see Wynn Duffy, who turns out to be the rat Art has been hunting! ¬† Raylan and Art pull him out of his tanning bed¬†and essentially tell him they will make it public that he was the ¬†one who turned … Continue reading EPISODE RECAP: JUSTIFIED: Burn (S6, EP 9)

Track of the Day Flashback Friday Edition: Kick by INXS

I had some time to kill with my Netflix lately and stumbled upon “Never Tear Us Apart: The Untold Story of INXS”, a made for Australian TV mini series. I found it fascinating and it reminded me exactly how great a band INXS was and how much I loved their music. ¬†I grew up in the 80s, so of course I know every word of … Continue reading Track of the Day Flashback Friday Edition: Kick by INXS
