I have been on a live music free fall since Savannah Stopover, Big Thief/Mothers, and anticipating Cherry Glazerr/Ian Sweet/ Lala Lala tonight. Yep, Ian Sweet was at Stopover, and I couldn’t make the show, but now I can!
Even though I will be sure to relive all of those beautiful moments, I have to listen and look forward to the latest, newest music. Here’s what rocked my world this week, there is a sound for everyone in this bunch. Add some music to your weekend. Listen.
New to me, Migrant Kids have been around Austin for a while now, and their Facebook Page says they are working on new music. This song is a beautiful heartfelt expression painted with the best plucking guitar…..(anybody else hear a modern version of Flock of Seagulls?) Swoon.
It is a phenomenally good week when this man puts out new music. Let’s all take the high road with Jason Isbell, a southern songwriting favorite.
Jason Isbell- Hope The High Road
The Drums are back! Jangly, joyous indie-pop with pleading lyrics. Love confessions. It hits us all.
“…Yes It’s true
that I hurt you
but I still love you,
I love you,
I still do…”
The Drums-Blood Under My Belt
I am insanely obsessed with this tune and Oddisee.…Perfect for a pick me up weekend dance tune. So much truth to the “things” in life.
And to top it all off, I listened to this tune from my inbox today…a soothing sound with a matching vocal of calm. Melodic and pleasantly addicting, he’s out of San Diego, but now based in LA. Julian Jasper has a new EP out on May 5th. Good stuff right here, check him out.
Julian Jasper-2AM, Chinatown
Then, I don’t know about you, but I love to jam to the unexpected wild sound of newness. Meatbodies has such a raw garage band, punky and chunky, rock and roll sound. A step into the futuristic past (Is that a thing ?).

I also added these tunes to my Spotify playlist for Jan/Feb/March. Check it out and follow along with me.
