Bonus Song of the Week: “Secrets” by Mary Lambert (Fedde Le Grand Remix)

Just to keep the dance party going, here’s Mary Lambert’s song “Secrets” from her album Heart on My Sleeve as remixed by Fedde Le Grand.

And here is the original, unadorned version of Mary Lambert’s “Secrets”:

Song of the Week: “Rolling in the Deep/Ain’t No Mountain” by Aretha Franklin

I always thought that “Rolling in the Deep” sounded like a cover of an Aretha Franklin song.  This confirms that Adele is a time traveler.

Song of the Week: “Hot & Cold” by Ex Hex

Ex Hex, the latest band formed by Mary Timony (of Helium and Wild Flag fame, among others) has a terrific new album called Rips. “Hot & Cold” is the first video from the album, but check out the rest of the songs as well.

And while we’re on the topic of Mary Timony, here’s a bonus video of “Honeycomb” by Helium from back in 1995 which was filmed in Jamaica Plain.

Song of the Week: “minipops 67 [120.2][source Field Mix]” by Aphex Twin

“minipops 67 [120.2]” is the lead track off of Syro, the first Aphex Twin studio album in 13 years.  It also is my song of the week.

Song of the Week Follow-up: New Albums by Clap! Clap! and Moon Hooch

I haven’t kept up with Song of the Week posts mainly because I haven’t been hearing songs that excite me much the past month or so.  Maybe I’m being too picky or maybe I’m not listening to enough new music.  Regardless, now more than ever, if you have a song to share, you should post it in the comments.

I am excited that there are new albums from a couple of Song of the Week laureates, which you you should definitely check out.

Moon Hooch featured in SOTW on 2 November 2013.  Their new album is  This is Cave Music.

 

Clap! Clap!‘s new album is Tayi Bebba.  “Elon Mentana” was song of the week on 8 March 2014.

 

 

 

Song of the Week: “Carousel Ride” by Rubblebucket

Brooklyn’s Rubblebucket has a new song “Carousel Ride” with a strange 80s sci-fi movie inspired video.  It’s an upbeat song with some clever lyrics – even name-checking Shackleton – with some horns coming in at the appropriate time.  I like the slow-build.

Song of the Week: “Set Yourself Free” by Tiësto featuring Krewella

The uplifting trance dance track “Set Yourself Free” by Dutch DJ Tiësto and featuring Chicago dance music trio Krewella seems a fitting song of the week as we approach the end of summer.  This tune is equally suitable to playing at a ball game or at a circuit party (because there’s always been a lot of overlap between jock jams and gay party anthems).  So turn up your speakers and dance like nobody is watching.
