Let’s hear it for (mostly) the boys for this week’s music roundup!
I’ve noticed that I’ve featured an awful lot of ladies in these music roundups. I obviously don’t have any objection to that but I feel like I should send some love over to the opposite sex from time to time too.
If you scroll down the list you’ll notice that one super talented songstress, BANKS, sneaked her way into to the music roundup. Still, the majority of the tracks are by male-fronted acts.
When I first started thinking about which artists to include today there was only one band that came to mind – Arctic Monkeys. I absolutely love them! I almost turned this whole post into an ode to Alex Turner, the lead singer, and the rest of the band.
Arctic Monkey’s first grabbed my attention back around 2006 with their album “Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not.” I’ve pretty much lusted after concert tickets to one of their shows ever since.
I, unfortunately, have yet to have the opportunity to see them perform. It deeply pains me but I know I’ll get around to it eventually. When I finally get a chance to see them live you guys will be among the first to know. You, along with probably everyone within a 5-mile radius who hears my joyous shrieking!
For this music roundup keep in mind that some picks are relatively new, some are old and from varying styles. This week scroll on down and give your ears a bit of bliss in the form of Arctic Monkeys, Dan Croll, Glass Animals and BANKS.
