It’s been a little while since a new album came out that has really blown me away (not since these, and the new Neil Young) – but there have been some new singles popping up that have me really excited about the upcoming albums from these bands! Check out three new tracks I love below – and also, if you’ve gotten any awesome new albums lately please let me know, I would love to hear some suggestions!
It feels like forever since the last Local Natives album came out (in 2009) so when they released the first single off their forthcoming album Hummingbird a few weeks back, I could not contain my excitement. Now, to be completely honest – I was not blown away the first time I listened. But like many great songs, it has grown on me and I cannot wait to hear the full album! I love the background effects that make it seem like you’re at sea, and the chorus crashes over you like a wonderful wave.
The girls of Haim have released a couple of new tracks this month, giving us a little taste of what to expect from their highly anticipated full-length album. I’m a big fan of these girls and their fresh, unique sound. Of the two new tracks I’m partial to “Send Me Down” – listen to both below!
Last but not least, I’m a huge Yo La Tengo fan and I always find myself listening to them a lot this time of year, so I’m very excited about the release of their new song “Before We Run” off the upcoming album Fade. It’s a gorgeous track that soothes the soul like a bowl of warm soup.
