3 Songs You Should Be Listening To (1-11-10)

A Rocket to the Moon – “Mr. Right”

The record label, Fueled by Ramen, clearly has an ear for popular music.  With a musical stable that includes Panic! at the Disco, Paramore, Cobra Starship and Gym Class Heroes it is obvious that they have the formula for success written down and stored in a bank vault.

A Rocket to the Moon signed with Fueled by Ramen in 2008 and after constant touring they are carving a place for themselves on the charts.  “Mr. Right” is a fun and energetic pop-rock song that is a great example of the music that they make.  This song has been stuck in my head for several weeks now.

Nneka – “The Uncomfortable Truth”

Nneka is Nigerian and German.  Her cultural background and upbringing greatly influences the incredible music that she creates.  When I listen to Nneka I am reminded of how I felt when I first heard Lauryn Hill.  In February 2010, the U.S. will be treated to her release of Concrete Jungle.  This is going to be big.  Get a sneak peak by checking out “The Uncomfortable Truth”.

Paper Tongues – “Ride to California”

I just can’t seem to get enough of groups that mix many musical genres together.  The Paper Tongues combine rock, rap, and funk together in a way that feels natural.  Their music is hard hitting, catchy and dance worthy.

The group formed in 2007, but 2010 is when we will see a lot of their hard work come to fruition.  Their single “Ride to California” is setting the stage for big things to come.
