New Music! Hooray!
My top suggestions this week:
Leogun – Leogun EP
This band has created some of the most exciting tunage I’ve heard in a while. For more see what I wrote about them after I saw them last week. Bottom line: pick up this EP!
Kris Orlowski & Andrew Joslyn – Pieces We Are EP
A singer-songwriter with a compelling baritone voice backed by a full orchestra…a full orchestra! Do you really need more to want to give it a listen? Okay, check out this video.
ZZ Ward – Til The Casket Drops
I remember being impressed with ZZ Ward’s soulful vocals when I saw her at SXSW last spring. Then this video for “Save My Life” featuring Michael Fitzpatrick (Fitz of Fitz and The Tantrums) crossed my path and I was compelled to share.
