Musical Monday

Musical Monday: Beating Compass by Quote Unquote

Musical Monday is a meme that I have no doubt is done elsewhere as well. As I am not yet making a meme or providing links to other participants, consider it a personal one for the moment.

 

Beating Compass
Artist: Quote Unquote
Album: Clouded Crystal Balls
Where To Listen/Buy: Youtube / iTunes / Bandcamp

Quote Unquote is a pop/rock/indie band from Indiana who I recently heard of thanks to Twitter. Their songs are catchy but Beating Compass has been stuck in my head more than the rest. They remind me a bit of Paramore which, as I enjoy Paramore’s music a great deal, is awesome! Their music is fun and their EP was an instant addition to my summer playlist. 🙂

Musical Monday: Devils Don’t Fly by Natalia Kills

Musical Monday is a meme that I have no doubt is done elsewhere as well. As I am not yet making a meme or providing links to other participants, consider it a personal one for the moment.

 

Devils Don’t Fly
Artist: Natalia Kills
Album: Trouble
Where To Listen/Buy: nataliakills.com / iTunes

I’m kind of in love with this album. Devils Don’t Fly played on one of my Pandora stations a few weeks ago and I can’t stop listening to Trouble since. Natalia Kills blends interesting lyrics with catchy beats that I can’t get out of my head. If I could wear out my iPhone playing this song it’d have broke long ago.

Musical Monday: Blood On My Name by The Brothers Bright

Musical Monday is a meme that I have no doubt is done elsewhere as well. As I am not yet making a meme or providing links to other participants, consider it a personal one for the moment. But perhaps you’ll find a new favorite song because of it. 🙂

 

Blood On My Name
Artist: The Brothers Bright
Album: A Song Treasury
Where To Listen/Buy: last.fm, iTunes

While this song isn’t a newer release, it’s still great. I heard part of it on a trailer for the new (and last! Oh my!) season of True  Blood last night and with the help of Google and rewinding the DVR, I was able to figure out what it was. And I’m glad I did; this song is catchy and I’ve played a few times since figuring out what it was called. It reminds me a little of Mumford & Sons or The Avett Brothers so fans of either might enjoy it. 🙂

Musical Monday: Massacre Anne

Musical Monday is a meme that I have no doubt is done elsewhere as well. As I am not yet making a banner or providing links to other participants, consider it a personal one for the moment. Every Monday I will post a song that I very much enjoy (and often inspires me in my writing) to share with you.

 

acolytes Massacre Anne
Artist:
Mary Crowell
Album: Acolytes of the Machine
Where To Listen/Buy: Bandcamp ($1 for the song, $10 for the album. You can listen to it on the site.)

Four villains on their quest for revenge try to save the world from a dark angel.

Mary Crowell’s second solo album, Acolytes of the Machine & Other Gaming Stories, is an unabashed love letter to the hobby of playing Dungeons & Dragons created by a singer/songwriter and folk/jazz piano composer who plays a Bard in Real Life.

This song came on my Pandora feed and I was a little startled at first as it was very much not along the lines of what the rest of the station is about. However the catchy beginning coupled with the interesting lyrics had me googling the artist in moments. When I found that the album Massacre Anne is on was inspired by Mary Crowell’s love of Dungeons & Dragons, I found a new favorite artist! D&D is close to my heart and this song is going to be in my head for awhile.
