Fresh New Tunes: Blitzen Trapper – American Goldwing

I was a big fan of Blitzen Trapper‘s album Furr that came out in 2008. If you haven’t heard it, I definitely recommend giving it a listen. I wasn’t as crazy about their 2010 release Destroyer of the Void; however, I can’t stop listening to their latest album American Goldwing. I would describe Blitzen Trapper as a new age, americana, folkish band. I don’t see the point in trying to describe what the music sounds like in great detail because you can just listen to them yourself on Spotify. Enjoy!

Fresh New Tunes: Hot Chip, New Build, and Cults

I had been getting bored with my music collection and I was having trouble finding some new tunes to shake things up. Fortunately Spotify┬áhas made it much easier for myself and everyone else in the US to stay on top of new tunes. Here are a couple of new albums that I have been really into lately. I’m always on the look out for fresh new tunes so if you have anything that you have been really into lately, please leave a comment with recommendations. New tunes don’t actually have to be brand new-if I haven’t heard it, it is new to me!

Hot Chip – In Our Heads:

If you are already into Hot Chip, it is safe to assume that you will like their new album. Their newest album, In Our Heads, is a little more up beat and high energy than their past albums, but it stays true to their style. These guys are quickly becoming international superstars because they have a sound that is well received by music enthusiasts of many different genres. I’m really excited for their upcoming show at Prospect Park in Brooklyn. I was surprised to learn how many of my friends already have tickets for this show. The wide range of people who I know going to the show exemplifies how their sound appeals to a diverse group of music listeners. At lot of people I have been talking to about the show weren’t aware of their new album so I figured it couldn’t hurt to get the word out that is certainly worth giving a listen.
