Spring Flings: The Strokes, Radiohead, and Cold War Kids

Dearest Listeners,

It’s officially spring. The birds are chirping, the sky is blue, and a revival of musical interest is in the air! I’ve been searching recently and have come across some interesting stuff to bring in the new season..

Don’t let the fact that you’ve heard the stuff these artists have put out in the past, because Here are three albums I’ve been listening to.

1. The Strokes – “Angles”
An established, indie-kid favorite comes out with a new, and original album with tracks mostly in the upbeat pop area. Not neccesarily my style, but hey it’s spring time, a time to be happy!

Listen to my favorite one from this album:

Ah yes, this is a great album to celebrate the change of seasons.

2. Radiohead – “In Bloom”
Indeed, another staple from the indie-kid itunes library. Radiohead’s new album features some interesting tracks that include drone-like rhythms, and unique percussion. Fun stuff. Explore this song:

3. Cold War Kids – “Mine Is Yours”
A lesser known, yet talented group, Cold War Kid’s new album is upbeat and catchy. It won’t be long before you’ll be humming along to some of the melodic tracks offered on their new album. Here’s my fav:

Welp, hope these three songs will jump-start your quest to find new music for the new season!

God Bless! And Go find more music!
