Wolf Saga ft. Lyon – You Only Live Once (The Strokes cover)
According to his Soundcloud page, Canadian artist Johnny Saga aka Wolf Saga “tried to make this cover sound like Autumn feels”. I’d say he succeeded.
Melissa Etheridge – Take My Number
I heard an acoustic version of this song at the end of Melissa Etheridge’s conversation with Marc Maron on the podcast WTF and it’s been stuck in my head since. Listen to this, the album version, and then check out her WTF performance and conversation here.
Naughty Boy ft. Bastille – No One’s Here To Sleep
Here’s a cool track off British producer Naughty Boy’s Hotel Cabana album.
Kongos – Come With Me Now
I really like the sound of this South African alt/rock band made up of four brothers. I heard this song as part of a high energy playlist that was designed for running. So that’s a tip if you’re putting together some motivational music to get the New Year’s fitness resolution going.
Le Noire – Fire
This throwback to the grunge rock of the ’90s comes courtesy this band from Echo Park, California. Can we all agree how great it is that guitars are back in popular music? Thank you.
