Two bands I love just dropped new albums to lift our tired popped out ears for the end of summer.
You probably know Passion Pit from their wildly popular first album “Manners.” Even though their high-pitched, electric, playful songs didn’t get a lot of radio play, I know you’ve heard Passion Pit’s “Moth’s Wings” before. Gossamer is very much like that album. I also need to say that the Passion Pit concert I saw in LA goes on my list of top ten ever. The energy in the room is unlike any other I’ve every felt at a concert…and…you get to jump around like a crazy kid :)
The Gaslight Anthem offers a heavier rock sound like we rarely hear these days (and I honestly long for).
Both are included on the Rdio playlist below, The Dog Days of Summer 2012. I made it with weightlifting workouts, bbqs, and trying to be productive around the house in mind. Well, that’s how I’m going to use it.
If you haven’t signed up for Rdio yet, do it (and you can follow my lists). I love being able to pay $10 a month and get unlimited music and sync it across all of my devises. Rdio’s “New Releases” section is the best discovery tool for new music (along with the Band Of The Day app).
While you’re at it, follow Clintus on Rdio, I’m loving his mixes right now.
BTW, yes, I’m aware of Spotify, I just really like Rdio right now.
