New Music Tuesday 6/17/14 f. The Pretty Reckless, Sam Smith

I haven’t gotten a chance to listen to much coming out today, but here’s what I’m most excited about

The Pretty RecklessGoing to Hell 

Has it really been four years since I had “Zombie” on repeat after seeing The Pretty Reckless at Warped Tour? I wonder what Momsen and co. have been up to lately…

Sam SmithIn the Lonely Hour 

Sam Smith has the voice of an angel. When I first heard the acoustic version of “Latch” I knew I had found my new favorite artist. This was confirmed after I caught half of a set at SXSW. In the months in between then and now, I have grown more skeptical as I kept hearing Sam’s voice covered by overly produced dance beats (not my favorite thing to listen to). I haven’t yet listened to In the Lonely Hour. I’m actually quite nervous to do so. You listen and tell me if I’d like it…

    Found a lot of Sam Smith’s new album to have those over produced club vibes, but some of his ballads are absolutely beautiful, personal favorites are Not in That Way and Lay Me Down!
