Tuesdays are a great day. It’s not a Monday PLUS we get tons of new music. Seems like a legit reason to be happy!

PICK OF THE WEEK

While today is only the US release of Kingdoms by Irish twins Heathers, it doesn’t make it any less exciting. These indie poppers bring a cool new tone and girl power. Their dueling voices give their music a bit of a Tegan and Sara feel. I like how they have this acoustic sound, but they aren’t folky, it’s refreshing from a lot of the folky music we hear today. Because we have received Kingdoms just a smudge bit late, the girls are actually already working on their third album!

 

NOT-SO-INDIE PICK OF THE WEEK

Martina McBride is someone I’ve been listening to for as long as I can remember. I even own her Greatest Hits CD. Her 20+ years as a musician just goes to show that she is truly talented. While Everlasting is a collection of R&B and Soul covers, Martina makes them her own without cutting any of the original song’s beauty.
