What am I listening to? is back! Let's dive right back in with my selections for the week!
First up is "Someday's Gone" the new song from alternative band The All-American Rejects! I was incredibly excited for this song,and it didn't disappoint! This is definetly my favorite song at the moment. Catchy and distraught, Tyson Ritter has written another great song. Their new album drops in February 2012. Listen here
"We Are Young" by indie alternative band Fun. is up next. This song was covered by the cast of "Glee" this week,it was a decent cover, but the original is so much better. It's an anthem for the youth of our nation,overall great song. Fun's album is coming February 23rd via Fueled by Ramen. Hear it now
"I'm Made of Wax Larry,What Are You Made Of?" is a track off of A Day To Remember's album "Homesick" that I've really been digging this week. Give this great tune a listen here
Next on my favorites list is "Immigrant Song", originally by Led Zepplin, but covered by Trent Reznor and Karen O. (of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs) for the upcoming David Fincher film "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" (in theaters December 23). Amazing cover, and you can listen by clicking
The Maine have a new album out called "Pioneer" (def worth picking up) and one of my favorites is the catchy song "Some Days" which you should check out here
"N**gas in Paris" is the best rap song I've heard in 2011. Hands down Jay-Z and Kanye West killed it. The beat is so perfect, and the lyrics are great. Love it. LISTEN
Another hot hip hop track I love is the new one from Chiddy Bang called "Ray Charles" It flows perfectly over an old school beat, and makes constant references to "being blind" and "not being able to see" since the song is about a blind musician (RIP). Listen now
I'm really getting into the reggae rock band Ballyhoo! I just ordered a physical copy of their newest CD called "Daydreams" So many great songs on this album,expect a review soon on youtube. My favorite song off of the album is "Evil Penguin". So fast paced with a fun island style beat and guitar rhythms. Enjoy
Next up is a new one from Hot Chelle Rae called "Beautiful Freaks". In my opinion,its the best song off of "Whatever" (their new album). I love its beat and catchiness,its pop heaven. Check it out!
If I have to pick a favorite off of the new album by The Black Keys, I think it would be "Little Black Submarines". Starts off kinda slow, but gets crazy, and I love the guitar on the song. My review of the album is up on AlbumReviewTV on youtube. Check out the song now
Ok guys,this is the last one for this week. Its "Narcissistic Cannibal" by Korn feat. Skrillex and Kill the Noise. Its off of their new metal/dubstep crossover album "The Path of Totality" which was mostly hit and miss, but this was a hit. I dig this track alot,and its very experimental to blend these 2 genres. My full review will be on youtube soon.
Thanks for reading guys. Enjoy the new music and some older tunes too! You can always find me on http://www.youtube.com/user/AlbumReviewTV
