* NEW SONG ALERT!*

This song was just released today by Mat Kearney, who is probably one of my very favorite artists. I absolutely love his music and his incredible, emotion-filled voice! This is a great new song and I thought I would share it quickly so you can check it out on the day of it’s release.

I have seen Mat Kearney live an amazing five times, and had the opportunity to meet him about five years ago in Dallas, Texas. He is such a great talent and just a fabulous guy … and I love his signature hats. 😉

I have been following him and his music since 2005 and always get excited when he releases something new. He has been known to combine all types of music, including rap, hip-hop, folk, rock, pop, and now a little electronic mix. I really like it and hope that you enjoy this new song. If you have not yet had the opportunity to see him perform live, I highly recommend it.

Song of the Day – “Stolen Dance” by Milky Chance

A quick song at the end of a very, very long day. I am exhausted, but refuse to skip Day 2 of my new posting run. 🙂

This song is by the German duo, Milky Chance, and is off their debut album, Sadnecessary. The duo is made up of singer/songwriter Clemens Rehbein and DJ Philipp Daush who met in an “Advanced Music Course” in the eleventh grade. You may already be familiar with them and this song, but my son and I kept listening to it while driving to and from the airport for a golf tournament a few weeks ago and I just have wanted to share it ever since.

Okay, it is only 9pm, but I am physically and mentally exhausted … I am off to bed. No stolen dance for me tonight. 😉

SONG OF THE DAY – “HARLEM” by New Politics

Today I just really want to post a fun song that makes me feel like moving. It is a great song for working out, dancing, or just bouncing your head while sitting down at work. I really love the sound and find it such fun. The song is not new and many of you may already be familiar with it, but it is a great song to add to your playlist if you have not already done so.

New Politics is an Indie-rock group originally from Copenhagen, Denmark who now make Brooklyn, New York home. They have released two albums and today’s song is from their sophomore album, A Bad Girl in Harlem, which was released in May 2013. The band seems to constantly be on tour and has a reputation for having an incredibly energetic stage performance. I have not seen them live yet, but they are currently on tour and I think they would be a fun group to see in action.

This song is such a great combination of drums, guitar and electronics and they fuse pop music and a punk sound seamlessly. It is great dance music and just plain fun. How can you not get up and move to this song? Watch the video and you will see what I mean. 🙂
