I’m psyched that we added this tune into rotation today on mvyradio. Kind of weird timing since I filled in on the early morning shift today and decided to grab the single and play it as a “request” (my own request I guess you could say). A listener called in and was psyched that I played it… then this afternoon, my boss told me we were going to start playing it officially next week. Great tune, great band, and so wonderful that they’ve been nominated for the Best New Artist Grammy! Fingers crossed.
Wow, unfortunately it’s been almost 5 months since my last New Music Preview… I guess it really was a nutty summer! But fall is here and I’m getting pumped about all the great new tunes!
Just 6 months after the release of his second full-length album, Swedish singer/songwriter Kristian Mattson (aka The Tallest Man On Earth) is poised to release a stripped down EP that gives me chills. Elizabeth and the Catapult’s sophomore effort, The Other Side Of Zero just came out and they call it “more abrasive” than their playful debut, Taller Children. Sunshine and surf still come to mind when listening to Donavon Frankenreiter’s latest release, Glow, and you MUST hear the debut album from a band that’s simply exploding onto the music scene – West London’s Mumford & Sons.
