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

So apparently there is a genre of music called “alternative country” and I guess I like it, since I dig this band, straight from the musical mecca that is Indiana.  They just released their first album called Little Neon Limelight and Sedona is their first single. 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 ‘bout 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

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

Track of the Day: Hollow Moon by Awolnation

This song has been out for awhile now and it is a pretty decent song and certainly worth hearing. But it is the track of the day because IT IS DRIVING ME CRAZY.  The main refrain, starting at :52, reminds me of SOME SONG but I can’t place it.  I have asked a few musically minded friends and they all agree that it DOES sound … Continue reading Track of the Day: Hollow Moon by Awolnation

Track of the Day: Black Mambo by Glass Animals

Let’s celebrate Hump Day with a sexy little song from Glass Animals.  This little English Indie band is relatively new, releasing their first album in June of 2014.  Their music is sexy and smooth and something about the chillness of it puts me in a good mood, which is much needed this week.    And while some songs might make you bob your head,  this one … Continue reading Track of the Day: Black Mambo by Glass Animals

Track of the Day: “Ex’s and Oh’s” by Elle King

I am loving this song and cannot listen to it without bopping my head and rocking my entire body. It’s funky, bluesy, country and rockabilly all in one.  The daughter of comedian/actor Rob Schneider, Elle just released her first album Love Stuff on February 17.   I have been listening to the entire thing on repeat all day and dig it all. ELLE KING: FACEBOOK | … Continue reading Track of the Day: “Ex’s and Oh’s” by Elle King
