It’s me again, coming at you with this week’s highlighted music. I’m particularly excited about this week’s list because oh my goodness Andrew Bird. If you haven’t heard any of these artists I highly suggest you dig into some of their older albums as well. Also going to try adding a featured artist each week from the song list. Think you can guess who this week’s is?

New Five

Andrew Bird: Manifest 

Soccer Mommy: yellow is the color of her eyes

HAIM: Hallelujah
Post Animal: Schedule
AWOLNATION: California Halo Blue

Throwback Track
Foo Fighters: Iron Rooster

Featured Artist
Andrew Bird, obviously. Andrew Bird is what I can only describe as a multi-instrumental, musical amalgamation. He’s what happens when you take a classically-trained violinist and smash it up with bizarre folk poetry and a sick beat. I picked him for this week firstly because he has a new song, and secondly because he’s just someone whose music everyone would benefit from hearing. (A third, less important reason is that he is a fabulous whistler and it always blows me away).

Also, if any of you ever have new music that you think would benefit everyone to hear, shoot me an email and I’ll give it a listen. Here goes nothing.
