New Music Monday


When working with Henry to clean up the desk top in his room, we came across a few itunes gift cards. He said he didn't use them anymore and that I could have them.  He gets all his music off of You Tube these days, but I decided to go old school and buy some new music.  In particular, I decided to support some artists that are new to me and not widely established (at least in the U.S.) by buying their albums.  First up, I bought "The Head and the Heart" by The Head and the Heart.  You can check out the video for" Lost in My Mind" above.  Next up:

I bought the album "Father, Son, Holy Ghost" by Girls. You can check out the video for the song "Honey Bunny" above. My next purchase:

I bought the album "Helplessness Blues" by Fleet Foxes. This is a video of the song "Grown Ocean."  Finally, I bought an album from a band not widely known in the U.S. (though I hear they're big in the U.K.):

They're called Elbow, and I bought the album "Build a Rocket Boys!" The video above is for the song "With Love."
I also bought several songs from The Decemberists and Trevor Hall.  I love having new music on my ipod! Do you have any good new music to recommend? Do you fancy any of the ones featured here today?

Now that's quite a collection! I'm not an ipod owner, and I tend only to listen to music in the car or a a concert! Will check these out.

My BIL is possibly the world's biggest Elbow fan. Which means Little E is also a fan! Itunes cards are still popular round here - we received several at Christmas - but the funny thing is it's old Heavy Metal from his Dad's era that TTO is buying

I kind of liked that Elbow song! Favorites lately for me are The Black Keys, Deathcab for Cutie and Mayer Hawthorne!

I've never heard of these artist but did listen to a couple and like them. I think it's great that your son was thinking of you to give you his gift cards. Have a great week Rinda, enjoy.

OOoooh Elbow - brilliant - my DH is a fan because they've developed a beer locally and it tastes really great!
