It’s been a while since I’ve done a roundup post, so here are the tunes that have been spinning in my iTunes this week.
Gnarls Barkley – Who’s Gonna Save My Soul?
Stripped down, Cee-Lo gives this song an emotion that slays.
Listen: Gnarls Barkley – Who’s Gonna Save My Soul?
Ben Nichols – The Kid
Nichols is releasing his solo debut full-length album sometime next year, but in the meantime, he’s just released a seven-song EP, “The Last Pale Light In The West”… which is available now (and yes, that “now” is meant to instill a sense of urgency within you), here.
If anything, I prefer Nichols’ solo output to his stuff with Lucero, and that’s saying something. Take some stripped-down, dusty guitars and a plaintive, yearning voice, and you’re close.
Listen: Ben Nichols – The Kid
Denison Witmer – Life Before Aesthetics
This song, however, is his own… and will appear on his upcoming album, “Carry The Weight“, which is due out in November. It’s a killer track, and one which really has me excited for November.
