3 Songs: On Repeat

Conor Oberst – “You Loved Him Once” (Conor Oberst returns with his latest solo album, Ruminations, out today on Nonesuch Records.  This album is the album fans of his early work have been wishing for.  The stripped-down acoustic arrangements feature only acoustic guitar, piano and harmonica alongside his distinct voice and poetic lyrical prowess.  The new songs written in the cold Nebraskan winter ache with emotion for his best album in years.)   
Stream Ruminations here (via NPR):

Red Fang – “Cut It Short” (The Portland heavy metal heavyweights are back today with their highly-anticipated fourth album, Only Ghosts via Relapse Records.  Produced by Ross Robinson, the stellar new album is filled with more of their hybrid hard rock that blends together effortlessly catchy and anthemic hooks disguised by thunderous, blues-soaked stoner rock guitar fuzz.  If rock radio still mattered, these guys would dominate alongside Foo Fighters and Queens of The Stone Age.)

Seeker – “Rot” (Loss, the aptly-titled new album from the Texas death metal trio led by vocalist/bassist Bryce Lucien is a raw and honest record of personal and professional loss.  Out now on Victory Records, the new album is stark, pummeling and emotionally-charged with grinding grooves and a throwback to 90’s metallic hardcore.)
