The more I listen to the latest Iron & Wine release, the more I love it. This song is so playful and beautiful and the music video is a work of art that really adds to the experience:
Hear the entire new Iron & Wine album, Ghost On Ghost, TONIGHT at 9PM – it’s mvyradio’s album of the week!
Iron & Wine
We’ve been playing this single at mvyradio and it’s really been growing on me as I hear it more and more. There’s a lightness to it that’s perfect for summer. Today I checked out the music video and I’m so glad I did! It’s extremely cute and funny…makes me want to dig deeper into this Austin-based band’s catalog.
This 19-year-old singer-songwriter from England just released his debut, self-titled album and this is the single. What a voice!
“High School Lover”
Great catchy tune from this Cali band…love the cute video for it too:
Four weeks ago today, the Boston Marathon bombings captured the nation’s attention. Local singer/songwriter Alex Karalekas was inspired to write this song after he heard about bombings. He recorded the tune here on Martha’s Vineyard at The Print Shop.

The other day I revisited my NEW Music Preview posts and cursed myself for not keeping up with them. I think they’re a super efficient way for me to pass on new music – less than 3 minutes of audio introduces you to 4 new tracks from some VERY different artists. With a little nudge from my boss, I made one for you today…hopefully one of many more to come!

Artists featured in this NEW Music Preview:
The Boxer Rebellion
“You and Me”
Here’s the new single from Sara Watkins…I think it’s so lovely! Her new album Sun Midnight Sun is out now.
“Roots & Vine”
I had never heard of this Texas-based band until my boss added this tune into our rotation at mvy the other day. Now I can’t stop listening to the song, which has hints of Mumford & Sons and Zac Brown Band. NPR called their sound an “impossible-to-define stew of country, folk, rock and gospel”. Whatever it is, it sounds GREAT:
Sons Of Fathers
“Julie (Come Out of the Rain)”
This is the single from Josh Rouse’s new album, The Happiness Waltz. At first, it didn’t grab me, but the more I hear it, the more lovely it sounds to me…with it’s beautiful pedal steel and subtle harmonies. It definitely makes me want to sit down to hear more of the album!
Here’s another single from Laura Marling’s forthcoming album…I can’t quite express how excited I am to have this CD in my hands! Once I Was An Eagle comes out May 28th.
