We start with something a little more popular than usual (to start of February), but I just could not pass up talking about it today....but there is a good variety of music here again today (you know, because I like making the playlist building at the end of the month stupidly complicated).
The Guys From do not hold the rights to any of these songs, it is more our hope to expose our readers to new and different music, or re-expose them to things they may have forgotten about.
At the top of each section, will be the song name, followed by the artists' name linked to their website, so you can fall down the rabbit hole, finding and supporting what you dig.
Hurt Me - Lapsley
LÅPSEY is a singer-songwriter from Southport, Merseyside, U.K. whose debut album comes out in March 2016. 'Hurt Me' is the first single off of her upcoming album (which she released in the autumn of last year), and it really features her absolutely beautiful voice, and her fascinating blend between singer/songwriter and a beautiful, subtle electronic music. This song has definitely been featured in many, many places, and it is well deserved--this is one of those song that I knew immediately I wanted to plug to you guys the second I heard it. It's gorgeous.
Long Way Home is due to be released on March 4, 2016, and I for one am really, really looking forward to hearing it in its' totality.
Lay Down - DMA's
This Australian band has been making a real push (particularly in Europe) as of late, featuring a sound that owes a great deal of their sound to 90s Brit Rock (especially bands like Oasis), and you have to admit, they really capture that sound. Like really capture the sound...I was almost 90% sure that it was Brit Rock (and maybe from the 1990s and I just had not known them). It's uncanny.
So basically, if you are a 90s Brit Rock fan, you're going to dig DMA's, and their debut album Hills End is supposed to be out February 26th.
Tropicoller Lease - Sun Club
There's something to be said about a group of friends who got together and decided to just make some good, happy music. Seriously, the Baltimore based band is known as: big snack, d-mac, special K, petunia and triscuit.
Their debut album The Dongo Durango is just a whirlwind of fun, and often insane pop rock which I felt was captured perfectly in "Tropicoller Lease", which is really just a crazy, fun blitz for about four minutes. I can't really explain it better than that; just give it a shot if you're looking for some indie pop...rock...that is different and fun.
Stockholm Skies - Steve Angello
Greek-Swedish DJ and producer Steve Angello should be a familiar name to anyone who is a fan of house as he has been active since 2001, and was one of the members of Swedish House Mafia. Early this year, he released his second solo studio album (and first since 2003!) Wild Youth and it is something of a masterclass in modern, fun house music. This is literally a must-listen to album for house fans, and I as I know there are a wide range of folks who check out Tuesday Tunes (and I do not feature house often), I thought that the endlessly catchy, and distressingly danceable 'Stockholm Skies' was a perfect point to jump in for the un-initiated.
I'm preaching to the choir with house fans when it comes to Steve Angello, but if you have any interest at all in house, electro-house, or really, just good dance music, give this one a shot.
Burn Fast - Bryce Fox
Los Angeles' Bryce Fox has one heck of an indie folk-pop song here in his debut single 'Burn Fast'. You really get a sense of scale when listening to 'Burn Fast' that gives this track a real sweeping quality to it that has a real cinematic feel. There is an EP expected sometime this year from Bryce Fox, and this first hint at what he is attempting is one that is making me keep an eye out to see what he does next.
Here it is! The Massive, 2-month (and almost impossible to blend together) December & January Tuesday Tunes Apple Music Playlist. The transitions are a little crazy, but blending Mongolian Folk Metal and Orchestral Electronica was totally a normal...day...for me...
The November Tuesday Tunes Apple Music Playlist and the October Apple Music Playlist is still available of course as well, in case you have not caught those yet (or just need more theguysfrom.com in your life).
Support what you dig! It's soooo much cheaper than anything else out there. You cannot even buy a can of corn for what one of the songs listed here would cost you....sorry, I'm just hungry.
See you again next Tuesday with 5 more Tuesday Tunes.
