3 Songs: On Repeat

Dori Freeman – “Another Time” (Virginia folk-pop singer-songwriter Dori Freeman - with the pure, lilting classic country-like voice - returns today with her highly-anticipated third album, Every Single Star, via her own label Blue Hens Music.  Once again produced by Teddy Thompson, the new album sees her embracing marriage and motherhood with the same charm alongside arrangements influenced by 60’s pop and highlighted by her Appalachian roots.  Listen lead single, an ode to friendship, here.)      

Blink-182 – “Happy Days” (The pop-punk vets recently released their eighth album, Nine, on Columbia Records; the second album with Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio joining Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker.  After spending all summer touring amphitheaters alongside Lil Wayne, the trio’s pop-punk sound leans more toward the pop end of the spectrum and is streaked with neon-lit synths and festival-ready bombast.  Listen to the upbeat and inspiring standout single with its soaring sing-along chorus, here.)

Pixies – “Catfish Kate” (The indie rock legends recently returned with Beneath The Eyrie, their third album since reuniting in 2004, out now on Infectious/BMG.  This new collection of songs is more in line with the classic Pixies sound than the previous two albums with the propulsive rhythms, infectious hooks and goth-streaked atmospherics fans have come to expect.  The standout single heard here is the perfect introduction to the new album and continuation of their storied legacy.)
