NEW: Calexico

“Falling From the Sky”

Today the new Calexico album is officially out, and I’ve been LOVING this new single. One thing I dig about this band is the Arizona-like vibe that’s so infused into their sound. They’ll transport that vibe from their home state to Boston on June 2nd when they play the Sinclair!

NEW: JJ Grey & Mofro

“Every Minute”

JJ Grey & Mofro have a new album out called Ol Glory and this is the single… it starts out slow and really smolders by the end with horns and gritty guitar riffs:

NEW: Death Cab For Cutie

“Black Sun”

I was extremely excited to hear new music from Death Cab for Cutie since it’s been so long! Honestly this song took a bunch of listens to grow on me…but now I really dig the darkness of it and this music video is pretty dope too:

Death Cab’s new album Kintsugi is out March 31st…Chris Walla has announced his departure from the band, so this album marks a new chapter for DCFC.

NEW: Alabama Shakes

“Don’t Wanna Fight”

Wow, it’s been a month since I’ve written! Apologies for neglecting the blog…musically we’ve had a GREAT start to the year. Lots of new stuff to love right now…I’ll be rolling out some of my favorite current singles over the next few days to make up for my long absence.

Alabama Shakes had a lot to live up to with their sophomore release, and this smokin hot single is a good sign that they’ve nailed it! I cannot wait to have the new album Sound & Color in my hands – it’s out April 21st.

mvyradio’s LAC

Live, acoustic, & cover tunes… that’s the name of a morning feature we do on mvyradio and it’s a very self explanatory one! Basically we feature songs that you may recognize, done a little bit differently. A live recording, an acoustic version, or a different artist taking a crack at it. Or any combination of the three!

Today I did a few Radiohead covers:

Punch Brothers “Kid A”

Ingrid Michaleson “Creep”

Mark Ronson “Just”

Live, Acoustic & Covers – weekdays // 8:20am & 5:20pm on mvyradio

Jam Cruise: Snarky Puppy

Well, it’s been more than 2 weeks since Jam Cruise…and I’m still (literally) dreaming about the experience. There’s been some musical memories that have remained with me since the cruise… even through the blizzard…

For me, watching Snarky Puppy was like witnessing a bunch of genius musicians BUILD the music as if it were a structure. A lot of the heavy hitters on board would come to their sets to check these guys out. That’s always telling – when musicians are standing next to you, watching, with their jaws also on the floor. This live video gives you a taste of what this Brooklyn-based collab is all about…
