One of my favorite bands, The Corrs, are back together. Their first live performance in 10 years took place on Sunday in Hyde Park London UK, in front of thousands, during an all day festival hosted by BBC Radio 2.
They played the biggest hits of course and one of my favorites if not a big hit in “Radio”. Word on the street is their new album will be coming out in November.

Here are some images screencapped from the video:
Members of Copilots in their native habitat
I had the opportunity to listen to the latest album from the Canadian group Copilots. Sunstroke is an odd title for an album because none of the songs are painful to the touch but might make you delirious as some jangly trippy music washes over you.
Mark Kozelek of Sun Kil Moon
I stumbled on to this live performance of Sun Kil Moon’s “By The Time That I Awoke” and I quite liked it. The minimal accompaniment and slightly off voice all work together for me. Haunting would be a word I would use to describe it.
Zero 7 with Sia and Sophie Barker singing Destiny 2001
The other day, while doing some research on the singer Sia, I discovered she worked with Zero 7. Their album ‘Simple Things’ is one of my favorite albums and it gave me an excuse to give it another listen. Sia’s vocals prove how great she is and she deserves all the acclaim she is getting now.
I’m really digging this song from the California indie rock band Foxygen. ‘How Can You Really’ is from their latest album ‘…And Star Power’ released in October 2014.
Elly Jackson from the band La Roux
The other night on Late Night with Seth Meyers I got a chance to hear La Roux, a band from the UK, and I loved the music. I really loved a song that wasn’t used on the show.
Streaming services like Spotify and iTunes are so convenient that you might be able to hear ALL your favorite music anytime and anywhere you want. However, those streaming services aren’t very good for the people who actually create the music. If you really want to support your favorite band, buy the album, just don’t stream it.
Last month I heard this single from the band Echosmith and it reminded me of New Wave from back in the 1980s. The whole album is good for the ears.
