Been loving this new single from Spoon…
“Rent I Pay”
Have you heard the new Spoon single? I’m psyched to hear that they’ll release a new album in August! This track is very Spoon-like, with fuzzy guitar riffs and a heavy beat…can’t wait to hear more!
Especially here on the Vineyard, Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of summer. I’m taking the Hot Seat on Monday night – an hour on mvyradio where the host gets to play something a little different…anything they want. I decided to play music that I love listening to when it’s beautiful and sunny outside… summertime tunes…warm weather artists. Here’s my playlist:
Michael Franti – “Sound Of Sunshine”
311 – “Speak Easy”
Guster – “Careful”
The Strokes – “You Only Live Once”
Jack Johnson – “You And Your Heart”
Grateful Dead – “Shakedown Street”
Frightened Rabbit – “Swim Until You Can’t See Land”
Bob Marley – “Easy Skanking”
Xavier Rudd – “Time To Smile”
Trombone Shorty – “Something Beautiful”
Toots and the Maytals – “54-46 Was My Number”
Sublime – “DJs”
Galactic feat. Irma Thomas – “Heart Of Steel”
Vampire Weekend – “Giving Up The Gun”
Spoon – “The Underdog”
TUNE IN MONDAY NIGHT AT 9PM!
Spoon – “Mystery Zone”
I’ve been getting a bunch of requests for this song the past few nights… I believe it’s in part due to the fact that Spoon will be playing House Of Blues in Boston tomorrow night and folks are getting amped up for the show. I also believe that this is probably the best track on their new album, Transference. Here they are performing “Mystery Zone” live on KCRW:
Well, there was a definite slowdown of new music here at mvyradio as there usually is during the holidays. But 2010 started off with a bang and a lot of great new material. Here are clips from a few artists who have already grabbed my attention this year.
