I'm happy this week, because I get to talk about my favorite band I've discovered since starting this feature last year, and a few other songs that I just cannot seem to get out of my head:
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.
Dirty Sexy Money - The Struts
The Struts' debut album, Everybody Wants comes out on March 4, 2016...and this is the first new song (after the ones that I already talked about the last time I wrote about The Struts)...and I for one cannot bloody wait.
I've talked about them a lot, I have heard them on the radio a few times...there's really nothing else I can say about them other than this:
If you are a fan of Queen, you will like The Struts--there is so much classic, arena rock love in this music, there is so much fun in The Struts, that it is very hard to imagine that they are not going to explode, and soon. They are touring the US right now, so if you have a chance, go see them; it's about time that they're big enough that I don't need to write about them anymore.
Not that I mind, because they're f***ing awesome.
People Crying Every Night - A R I Z O N A
Speaking of songs I cannot seem to get out of my head, 'People Crying Every Night' has been on repeat for me for a while now, from A R I Z O N A, a band who are, obviously, from New Jersey. One of my absolute favorite things about this indie pop trio is that they have created a mobile recording studio in an old Toyota, and just go around making music. They are currently working on what would be their debut EP, that should appear sometime soon...so if you dig this mellow indie tune, keep an eye out for that debut release (or check out their few other singles).
Pen to Paper - Modern Space
If you're looking for more of an indie alternative track, then I can return to my home country with Toronto's Modern Space, a five-piece who have a song here with 'Pen to Paper' that is next to impossible not to start bobbing along to--I had it on my list for a while for Tuesday Tunes, slipping down a bit, and as soon as the track started, my feet started tapping--always a good sign when I'm writing Tuesday Tunes.
'Pen to Paper' is definitely heavier on the rock side of indie alternative (than the sometimes more folk-based alt), electric guitar, a thumping drum section, and great vocals; rock fans take note of Modern Space and check out their debut EP (that came out this January) Before Sunrise.
Costner - TRAAMS
This Chichester, West Sussex trio make a fuzzy, loud, and fun sort of throwback indie rock that just works. There's something about the energy in 'Costner' that I just really latched on to, which makes me more than happy to add it to this list.
Give TRAAMS a listen, and see what you think, it's hard to describe further, but if you like 'Costner' then I definitely recommend tracking down their latest album Modern Dancing, which was released late last year.
She - Weekend Wars
The debut single from this St. Helens, Merseyside, U.K. indie pop rock group is one that came out a little over a week ago, and there is just something about it that I really liked. They already have the seed of an interesting sound pop sound that I hope continues to develop; it's that perfect blend of indie rock, pop, and fuzzy, dreamlike sound that I really dig.
There's not much I can say about them at the moment (obviously) other than that I am looking forward to hearing what else they come up with, as this sort of atmospheric pop rock has a lot of potential; they expect to release an EP sometime later this year, so keep an eye out for that as well.
The Massive, 2-month (and almost impossible to blend together) December & January Tuesday Tunes Apple Music Playlist is right here. The transitions are a little crazy, but blending Mongolian Folk Metal and Orchestral Electronica was totally a normal...day...for me...
And yes, the February TT list will be up with next weeks' article.
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 hamster hat for what one of the songs listed here would cost you....stupid hamster hat inflation.
See you again next week with 5 more Tuesday Tunes!
