New Music Tuesday: Re-Arrange Us and Get Better

I’ve had “Get Better” rattling around my head for the last few weeks whenever something else isn’t distracting my mind. I purposely avoided the pre-release that Mates of State was offering on their myspace page…and boy did it pay off. This morning I grabbed the new album off of AmazonMP3 ($7.99 as opposed to the […]

New Music Tuesday: Tuesday Mornings & Wednesday Nights

So I broke my recent rule of not buying music via iTunes on Tuesday. I admit it. My one caveat I mentioned was that I would buy exclusives, and that’s what got me to give them my money. I bought Counting Crows’ Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings from iTunes because there was an exclusive bonus […]

New Music Tuesday: Catching Up on New Music

If you’ve been reading me for a while, you know I used to be pretty diligent about posting every Tuesday about the new music that was released that day that I could recommend. It’s been a while…in fact you have to go back to September when I bought 3 albums with 3 services (iTunes, eMusic, […]

New Music Tuesday: 3 Albums, 3 Services

You may have heard that Amazon has thrown their hat into the ring of selling music online. iTunes has been the big player for legal downloading of music for years, but eMusic and now Amazon continue to make competition more interesting. I tested Amazon as well as the new eMusic remote and have to say […]

New Music Tuesday: Make the Right Moves

(photo credit: Ko(char *)hook) I caught myself editing this post because I’ve been using too shiny of hyperbole to describe how excited I am that Josh Ritter’s new album is downloading from iTunes as I type. I’ve been hearing snippets for a few months and everything I’ve heard leads me to believe that it’s a […]

New Music Tuesday: Catching Up On Tuesdays

It’s been a few weeks since my last New Music Tuesday. I wanted to spotlight 4 albums that have been released over the last few weeks. All end up being great summer music, so it’s fitting they’re in rotation now. Josh Rouse – Country Mouse, City House (iTunes) (Amazon)This one came out today. It reminds […]

New Music Tuesday: Get Yourself Out in the Sky Blue Sky

Today marks the release of one of the most anticipated albums of the year. You could put Neon Bible, Sky Blue Sky, Easy Tiger and a handful of others on a short list together. I’ve been looking forward to Sky Blue Sky‘s release since Jeff Tweedy mentioned it in September of 2005 at Stubb’s BBQ. […]

New Music Tuesday: Are You Looking At Me?

As mentioned in last night’s ramble, I’ll be seeing Colin Hay in a few weeks. He’s touring supporting his latest album which was actually released today. Are You Looking At Me? is a solid album that upon first listen departs from his previous solo records, but he also seems to be working to separate himself […]
