Check out what we’ve been listening to this week!
Michael Cottone: ‘Jesus’ – The Velvet Underground
The Velvet Underground’s self titled album is filled with introspection and romance. Lou Reed’s voice carries so much power and emotion with the faint instrumental backgrounds. It’s simplistic and beautiful, a perfect follow up to their hit “Pale Blue Eyes.”
‘Real Love Baby’ – Father John Misty
Vintage Father John Misty. Pure beauty.
Maxwell Denari: ‘Maxwell’s Silver Hammer’ – The Beatles
It might appear that I am obligated to like this song, based on the fact my name is Maxwell. Beyond that this song is quirky, eclectic and catchy. One of the many hits off of The Beatles classic record, “Abbey Road”.
Mason Pippenger: ‘Red Bottom Sky’ – Yung Lean.
This is his newest single and it is so good! It has a really slow beat and is really mellow, which I think is Yung Lean’s specialty, but he doesn’t do a lot. If you’ve never listened to him give ‘Red Bottom Sky’ a chance!
Matthew Keyser: ‘Don’t You Ever Wash That Thing’- Frank Zappa
Frank Zappa music performed live is truly something to behold. “Don’t You Ever Wash That Thing” is a very complex composition executed perfectly by a band which includes a marimba, a horn section and up to four vocalists at a time. While Zappa’s music can be overwhelming on a first listen, its beauty evident to anyone who gives it a second listen.
Cole Callahan: ‘Doubt It’ – Kyle
I’m all about the positive rapper movement and Kyle is truly a unique artist. Although he has a distinct lisp, he still produces hits. I love the energy Kyle radiates in his music and more specifically this song.
Gabi Glass: ‘Gold Digger’ – Kanye West
Kanye’s older music just never gets old, and this song is obviously a classic. It’s so hard not to sing along and it’s just all around a jam.
