3 Songs You Should Be Listening To (12-7-09)

Annie Little – “Fly Me Away”

This fun little ditty is featured in the new commercial for the Amazon Kindle.  And everyone reading this is getting a K-I-N-D-L-E!!  This just in…we are not giving away free Kindle’s.  I guess only Oprah and Ellen can do that.  Our bad.

“Fly Me Away” is light-hearted and bubbly track that will no doubt put you in a good mood.  Maybe not a “I just got a free Kindle” kinda mood, but a good mood nonetheless.

Langhorne Slim – “Be Set Free”

Bruce Wayne is Batman.  Sean Scolnick is Langhorne Slim.  So does it stand to reason that Mr. Slim is the new hero of folk music?  Of course it does.

“Be Set Free” would be the equivalent of Batman’s awesome boomerang and the album Be Set Free would be the utility belt.

Ok, now repeat after me with a deep husky voice…”I’m Langhorne Slim.

N.A.S.A. – “Gifted”

I have to admit that I was super geeked when I heard that N.A.S.A. was putting out an album.  Finally, music to express my youthful experiences from space camp!   Well, I then learned the music had nothing to do with the governmental space agency.  The disappointment was quickly knocked away as I listened to the creative musical explorations of Sam Spiegel (Squeak E. Clean) and Ze Gonzales (DJ Zegon).

The Spirit of Apollo is chocked full of insane hip-hop collaborations that will send your ears into orbit.  My space shuttle’s external tanks are filled to the brim with “Gifted” thanks to Kayne West, Santogold and Lykke Li.  Oh, and did I mention that I am a huge nerd?  Blast off!
