3 Songs: On Repeat

The Head And The Heart – “Colors” (The folk-pop favorites return with the release of their highly-anticipated third album titled, Signs Of Light, out now on their new label, Warner Bros. Records.  After the lengthy touring that accompanied their last album, the band took a breather then returned refreshed and the resulting album continues their brilliant streak with their trademark close-knit harmonies and heartfelt and uplifting lyrics intact along with even bigger and brighter festival-ready hooks for another great album.)      

Banks & Steelz – “Wild Season feat. Florence Welch” (Banks & Steelz is the new hip-hop duo featuring Paul Banks of Interpol and RZA from Wu-Tang Clan; their debut collaborative album, Anything But Words was recently released on Warner Bros. Records.  Both assert their distinct creative personalities, with RZA sounding as energetic as ever and Banks contributing his moody, atmospheric post-rock sound to the mix for one of the best and most refreshing rap releases of the year.  Guests include Kool Keith, Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Masta Killa and Florence Welch.)     

Wilco – “Someone To Lose” (After the surprise release of their ninth album, Star Wars last year, the band surprises yet again with another new album, Schmilco, out today via dBpm.  The new 12-song album continues where Star Wars left off but is looser with scruffy, mostly acoustic folk-rock and a lived-in vibe.  If they shook the “dad-rock” phase, then this might be Wilco at their most comfortable.  Call it “grandpa-rock” and love it just the same!)
