Press Play Friday: Music Obsession – Florence + The Machine

Cosmic Love Hello, my fellow music addicts. Happy Press Play Friday! I really don’t even have to ask if you have a music obsession. I know you do. If you’re like me, music is always playing. There’s always a song running in your mind, trying very hard to keep you from doing your work. It’s…

Press Play Friday: KT Tunstall

Suddenly I See I though we’d do a little something different today. I thought we’d take a look at a more established artist this week. I’ve been listening to KT a lot recently, so it seemed fitting to feature her in a Press Play segment. Now, it seems pointless to go in lengthy detail about…

Press Play Friday: The Mitch Hansen Band

“Stupid shiny Volvo owner, I’m so glad to see you here.” This week we saw what happened when Supernatural and Twilight combined. It was amazing, let’s face it. Yet, this wasn’t the first time Twilight fused with another one of my favorite things. If I told you that there was a band  – an awesome…

Download This!

Get those headphones ready! Hey everyone! Since there wasn’t a Press Play Friday last week (Sorry!), I thought it would be nice to give you an extra music fix. Here are a few song suggestions that I feel are “must downloads.” And for this week’s Press Play Friday, I’ll be featuring The Mitch Hansen Band!…

Press Play Friday: Justin Nozuka

After Tonight Let’s make some introductions, shall we? Meet Justin Nozuka: singer/songwriter, musician, etc. Have you ever met before? Yes? No? Maybe? Okay, that’s why I’m here. First, we need to go back. Back to the year 2008, when Justin’s album Holly first hit the airwaves. More than just a singer/songwriter, Justin Nozuka is a soul…

Album Review: KT Tunstall – Tiger Suit

The Entertainer Three albums later, and KT Tunstall is still the indie pop rock goddess we all remember. After a week of going through each song, picking out my favorites, and then listening the album in its entirety, I quite possibly think that Tiger Suit is my favorite KT album. It’s a little hipper (synthesizers…

Press Play Friday: Kate Walsh

“He keeps my heart between the light and the dark.” You might say I’m late to the game on this one. Of course, this happens a lot. However, after three albums and an impending fourth, I still find it hard to find someone who knows exactly who Kate Walsh is. This singer/songwriter (From Essex) sets…

Press Play Friday: Fresh Music 10/1/10

I think it’s time for some new music It’s that time, once again. I know you’ve been waiting for it. So here it is. It’s time for some new music (Yay!). This week I’ve been scanning my iTunes library to find something really good for you (I hope I do that every week). Today we’re…

Artist of the Month: Jack’s Mannequin – Dear Jack

Artist of the Month: Jack’s Mannequin wraps up today. Let’s celebrate this amazing artist! Dear Jack, Wow. It’s been a crazy month. We went behind the music in all cheesy VH1 fashion. We listened to your music (Parts 1 and 2). I might have gotten a little over-dramatic as we examined your lyrics and listened…

Artist of the Month: Jack’s Mannequin – The Music (Part 2)

“I’m writing you a symphony of sound” No. You’re not seeing double. We continue Artist Of The Month with more music from Jack’s Mannequin. In part 1, we swam, were Bruised, lived in Dark Blue, and played with Hammers and Strings (Don’t you love my play-on-words?). Today we might go into the Caves or play…

Album Review: Sara Bareilles – Kaleidoscope Heart

There is no second album slump for Sara Bareilles I’ve now had a week to process this. The lyrics are almost completely memorized. The melodies are now individually recognizable. And I’m trying to figure out which song is my favorite (This is proving rather difficult). I’m confident that I can give you an honest review….

Artist of the Month: Jack’s Mannequin

Jack’s Mannequin. Do I really need to say anything more here? “I consider myself a person like everyone else, and I take my time writing my records because I feel like it captures more of who I am. You have a much greater chance of hitting on themes and points…that could play into someone else’s…
