It is a quiet week. Our college superstar panel with the weekly deep cuts and cool picks are off somewhere warm. Also -- this is SXSW week and all the music publicists are in Texas swilling cold beer and munching on tacos.
Sparrow - Emelie Sande
Big and Beautiful. Her music has had a tough time getting fans in the US, hope this one gives her a boost.
Favorite Sound - Echosmith / Audien
A change of sonic pace for Echosmith and I like it.
Love Is On The Line - Jack Savoretti
Turn this on an you are immediately at a Cafe with a checked tablecloth swilling red wine on a fabulous day.
Here With Me - Chvrches / Marshmello
Stereogum was really snotty in their post about this song and it has gotten under my skin and stayed with me all week. Love them or not -- facts - Marshmello is now a media brand and Chvrches have achieved the impossible with 3 commercially successful albums in a row.
7 Minutes - Dean Lewis
Viral Ear Candy!!!
Lack Of Love - Friendly Fires
Just out today -- We filmed them a million years ago and loved their vibe -- they still have it.
The Moefly Collective
The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly) - Missy Elliot
Valerie - Amy Winehouse
Almeda - Solange
Sucker - Jonas Brothers
-- Zoe and Sheila will be back -- when they get back from Spring Break.
