More music picks for your Monday. If you like what you hear, use the links provided to snag it for yourself from Amazon. Doing so through us gives us kickbacks, and those help pay for stuff like microphones. And more music.
We start off with “True Loves,” the first single from the new album by Hooray For Earth, which is expected to hit in full next spring. It’s like a slightly mis-programmed robotic reggae band two rooms down is playing and somebody decided to use them as a backing track with awesome results. BTW, if Hooray For Earth doesn’t have a series of official band black t-shirts, then they really should get on that. Because their name kicks ass.
Although this is a brand new track, you can find previous Hooray For Earth stuff here.
And next we have from the excellently-titled Goonies Never Say Die (yes, that’s the band), “Nothing Remains Forever Yet The Future Still Holds Hope” from their album No Words To Voice Our Hopes And Fears. Full-on instrumental rock, sounding like somebody took the soundtrack to a film you like and then covered the whole damn thing. A friendlier version of the bastard child of Daemonia and Fantomas. That’s what it sounds like in my head, anyway.
No Words to Voice Our Hopes and Fears is available as an MP3 download from Amazon.
And last but not least, the new single from Kongos from their upcoming album. The song is “I’m Only Joking” and possesses that fun stompyness that we don’t get enough of anymore. Contrast this with the bar brawl stompyness of something like Elbow’s “Grounds For Divorce.”
Again, the new album isn’t out yet…but their previous self-titled release can be found at Amazon either as a CD or MP3 download. You can throw them your email address and get the single for free here.
