In My Ears: Platinum, by Miranda Lambert


Full disclosure: I’m a Miranda Lambert Fan. I have all her albums. Even that little four-song EP (The Dead Flowers EP) she put out between Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Revolution. That said, over the last week or so, I’ve given her new record, Platinum, a few spins, and it’s in my ears again right now. The first couple of songs are good. The title track plays second, and it’s a fun little tune. And I really like the third cut, Little Red Wagon. I was all ready to tell you the album doesn’t really take off until that song plays. And then Smokin’ and Drinkin’, the album’s fourth cut, came on. That’s the kickoff song. Smokin’ and Drinkin’ is an easy, fondly reflective song. Ms. Lambert collaborated with country vocal group Little Big Town on the track, and they brought their sometimes … [Read more...]

Music Video of the Week: “Tennis Court” – Lorde

The 16-year-old New Zealand sensation Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor (Lorde) is taking the US by storm. You've probably heard her single "Royals" everywhere, and why not, it's a great song. I readily admit to being a fan of Lorde's music; she's a great singer and the music itself is pretty great too. For the music video of the week this week, we're not going with "Royals," but instead I'm going with her other single that I think is even better than "Royals," "Tennis Court." Now this video has a lot of haters for some reason who think it's creepy, awkward, and/or cheap. Personally, I like it a lot. It fits the song and it fits Lorde's style. I guess some folks just aren't happy if there isn't Illuminati/MK symbolism all over the video or if the focus isn't on selling sex. For those … [Read more...]

Explosions in the Sky “Take Care, Take Care, Take Care.”

Last Known Surroundings Human Qualities Trembling Hands Be Comfortable, Creature Postcard From 1952 Let Me Back In Though none of its members have indicated it, you would have to think it is at least somewhat frustrating to be in this band.  Not for any negative reasons but simply due to the fact that as an artist your goal is to get your art out to as many people as possible and to hopefully make fans from it.  To me the frustration comes in the fact that I'd wager to bet that a good portion of people reading this have heard the band yet have no idea who they are.  This stems from the fact that they scored about 90% of the soundtrack to one of the more popular sports films of the past ten years, Friday Night Lights. Then again some would argue that's the downside of being … [Read more...]
