Love You to Death by Tegan and Sara

Identical twin sisters Tegan and Sara have steadily evolved from their Canadian indie/acoustic roots to to mainstream pop during the 17 years they have been producing albums. Many people first heard them in 2014 when they partnered with The Lonely Island to sing "Everything is Awesome", the theme song for the Lego Movie. Tegan and Sara have partnered with Sia and Adele collaborator and producer Greg Kurstin to create their eighth and latest album, released just earlier this month on June 3.

Barbara, Barbara, We Face A Shining Future by Underworld

This is electronic dance pioneer Underworld’s first new studio album since 2010, and it’s an elegant creation that incorporates modern flourishes along with the traditional techno beats we’ve come to expect from this group. I was a huge fan of their 2000 live album “Everything, Everything,” which is exclusively a progressive house album, with a collection of songs that will wake you up without the aid of caffeine. This album has some softer songs, incorporating guitar and piano, and more simple synth lines.

New Music - Friday, March 18, 2016

Every week new music comes out, whether we announce it here or not! This week there are some great new tunes to listen to, whatever style of music you enjoy. I've also included a couple in the list below that came out early this year, but I haven't talked about new music in a while and wanted to make sure you didn't miss them. You can always stay on top of the latest music here. Hopeyou have a great weekend!

Hot Chip

Hot Chip’s albums keep falling into my lap ever since the first time I unexpectedly came across them in high school.  The British electronic group hasn’t changed too much though- if anything, they’ve gotten even more confident in their quirkiness and comfortable in their own skin.  Their newest album Why Make Sense?, released in May, illustrates just how these skilled these blokes are with synthesizers and emotive lyrics with songs like “White Wine and Fried Chicken”, “Huarache Lights” and “Love is the Future”.
