Well, I’m a little late to the Daft Punk party (their new album, Random Access Memories came out about a month ago), but man, the party is FUN and it lasts all night! My sister played some tracks for me this past weekend and I’m totally hooked! Here’s the single, “Get Lucky” with vocals from Pharrell Williams:
Have you heard this new Neko Case single? When I first heard it, I thought it was really strange. Not the lyrics (that’s a whole other story), but the sound of the track. It sounded frantic to me. The other day, I said to my boss – “We’re playing the new Neko Case single? I think it’s weird!” and his response was “Neko Case IS weird!”
This is a great new tune and hilarious music video from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Their new self-titled album comes out on June 23rd.

As a big fan of Ingrid Michaelson, I’m not really sure how I had missed this song until recently. The album (also called Be OK), was released in 2008 between Girls and Boys (2006) and Everybody (2009). It includes some previously unreleased tracks, live cuts and covers. Like a lot of her songs, this one shines through its simplicity. Sometimes all you need is a catchy tune with lyrics that we can all relate to:
I’m truly, deeply obsessed with the new Vampire Weekend album, Modern Vampires of the City. I have listened again and again and again and I’m not even close to tired of it. It’ll likely be the soundtrack to my summer.
This is a song hidden towards the end of the album – track 10 (of 12). It’s one of the more strange tracks, with some inaudible lyrics and bizarre sounds. But it’s so catchy! It’s one of my favorites:
“Dear Lord (Give Me The Strength)”
The Preservation Hall Jazz Band is coming out with their first ever album of all ORIGINALS. That’s It! is out July 9th, and this is the single:

I like a lot of what I hear from this French band, especially this particular tune that keeps popping up while I’m listening to my favorite stations on Pandora…neat video too:
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!

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!
