The past few weeks I’ve had social commitments on Sundays – gasp! I know! Sundays for some people are reserved for worship, brunch, or in my case, grading. For whatever reason I’ve had a lot of requests to socialize on Sundays, and I’ve gladly accepted. As a result of this, I’ve been in my car driving for the past few consecutive Sunday mornings and it’s been a music revelation. Some of my favorite stations do “Sunday Morning Over Easy”, “Acoustic Sunrise” or my new favorite: “Sunday Morning Country Oldies”. All three of these stations play music that’s either unplugged, rare, old or live. It’s been so fun hearing new renditions of some of my favorites, or a Lorrie Morgan single that I forgot existed. I encourage you to check out your local stations to see what they’re up to on Sunday mornings. I’m planning on making it a more regular occurrence in my own life. In the meantime, here’s what else I’ve been listening to this week. Enjoy, and please let me know if you have recommendations!
The Black Keys’ new single “Fever” – This is the first single from their upcoming album of the same title, which will be released on May 13th. It’s a little bit rock ‘n’ roll, a bit psychedelic, but still has those grainy vibes that are so fun. I always find their upbeat tunes to be great highway driving music – that is, if you like to drive fast.
Indian Summer‘s single “How Sad” – I discovered this band through a few bloggers who wrote about bands to watch at SXSW. They’re equal parts Bon Iver, MGMT, and Vampire Weekend. I don’t know much about this band, but the catchiness of this song, and the cleverness of the video made me a fan.
Granville Automatic‘s “Don’t Come to Tennessee” – Another discovery via SXSW, but this is much twangy-er than what I’ve posted in the past. Truth be told: I love country music. These gals are channeling Patsy Cline, The Dixie Chicks and Zooey Deschanel simultaneously, and it’s divine.
