I'm not really sure if Tune Tuesday is a thing... but today, I am making it a THING! It's a great day for new music, kids! Listen up!! So many great new releases came out today!
Here's my list:
1. Cassadee Pope - You Hear A Song (Single - Republic Nashville Records)
Cassadee released yet again, another killer song. That means we are another song closer to her full album titled, Frame By Frame which is scheduled to be released on October 8th. Woo! I really love the background music to this song. It is something different for her, and I am loving it. Go Cass! The intro is beautiful, and obviously her vocals are flawless. I cannot get enough of her voice. She makes everything seem so easy. It flows over every verse and chorus in this song with such a light and airy sound. The more country music she releases, I am finding that this genre is what Pope is meant to sing and perform. Girl has got some major talent! She has never sounded better. Make sure to purchase your own copy on I-tunes today!
2. Yellowcard - Ocean Avenue Acoustic (Album - Hopeless Records)
This release makes me so happy. I have always been a fan of YC and I hope you are too. What's not to love about these guys? I mean hello... they have a violin player. HOW COOL. I tried to pick out one song in particular that the violin really shows through, but it is just too hard to pick one because every song sounds great (if I had to pick one though... I'd say a song titled, "Empty Apartment"). Anyways, if you never purchased the first release of Ocean Avenue, then I highly recommend checking this album out. It is a great representation of this band. There is a reason that this band is still around today. Also, the album artwork for the album is rad. YC will be heading out on an acoustic tour to promote this album this fall so check out their website and see if they will be making a stop near you!
3. Parachute - Overnight (Album - Island Def Jam Records)
There is something special about this band. They are all great musicians, great performers, and great people. To this day, they are still one of my favorite live shows that I have attended. They are the kind of band that you can listen to no matter what day it is or what mood you are in. They always want to make you get up and groove (one of their older songs is even my alarm that I wake up to every morning for class...). This album is FANTASTIC. I have waited for this release, and it’s even better than expected. The first song will win you over immediately. If anyone deserves more recognition, it’s these guys. If I could get you to listen to or even purchase one of my three choices this would be number one. Each song I listen to becomes my new favorite song. It is an all around a great album. There are all types of songs that please the ear... up beat songs, ballads, and pop rock. The album finishes off with an acoustic song titled, "Hurricane." They will also be heading out on tour very soon with this album, so check out the dates here! You really don't want to miss their show.
Let me know if you picked up any of this new music and what you think of it!
