Songs I’ve been listening to lately

Hi there!

It’s been quite a while since I posted something – almost two months! My sincere apologies for the same.

Anyway, let’s cut to the chase!

There’s been a huge influx of new music in my library in the two months I haven’t posted. Not all of it has been alt/indie though – I’ve recently been listening to a lot of Soul and R&B. Erykah Badu specifically. You should definitely check out her 2000 album ‘Mama’s Gun‘. It’s one album you could hear start to end and not notice the time just flying by. But I’m gonna list down some songs you may wanna hear:

Erykah Badu – Album
1. Orange Moon – Mama’s Gun
2. …& On – Mama’s Gun
3. A.D. 2000 – Mama’s Gun
4. Window Seat – New Amerykah Part II (This song is absolutely amazing)

Also, I had the opportunity to listen to Capital Cities‘ new album, A Tidal Wave of Mystery. While the album as a whole is really good, I didn’t exactly enjoy (by enjoy I mean listen to again and again) all the songs. However, there were a few songs I really loved!

Capital Cities – A Tidal Wave Of Mystery
1. Farrah Fawcett Hair – This song is something very unlike you would have heard before. Having used  NPR voice personality Frank Tavares, it’s a lot of a narration more than vocals. In short, really, really good! Very fresh!
2. Origami – I came across this while listening to Capital Cities radio on the new iTunes radio on iOS 7. Again, really really fresh. More than worth a listen or two.. or three.. well until you get sick of it.

And finally, here are some tracks from my 8tracks and iTunes Radio wishlist.
