It turns out I’ve sucked at blogging this month however things have been pretty busy and I have been producing some content for giffgaff which I’ll round-up on a post next week sometime.
It is however that time when I write about the music I’ve been listening to in February (although Colbie Callait from January’s jam is still stuck on repeat!).
So here we go…
Cassadee Pope was the lead singer of pop-punk band Hey Monday before releasing a solo EP and winning the Voice in America. Her debut solo album ‘Frame by Frame’ is something I’ve listened to a fair amount this month.
It’s by no-means a ‘blow you away’ album but does have some nice tracks on if you like soft country-pop (kind of Taylor Swift-ish)
My musical discovery of the month was Ally Burnett after reading that she had sue’d Owl City & Carly Rae Jepson because their song ‘Good Time’ sounded like her song ‘Oh, It’s A Love Song’ (other than the ‘oh’s they don’t at all!).
Her music is, again a little bit like Taylor Swift but with slightly more attitude. Ally has 3 EP’s to her name which I’ve downloaded and have enjoyed them quite a lot. In particular ‘Hell hath no fury like a songwriter scorned’ is a track I really like…largely due to the title!
Falling In Reverse
Finally and in complete contrast to the others I’ve been listening to a fair amount of rock/metal/random-genres-thrown-in band Falling in Reverse. I’ve had both their albums for quite a while but have rediscovered their second album ‘Fashionably Late’ this month and really enjoyed it again…their faster tracks are spot on for the treadmill too!
Here’s a YouTube playlist of 2 of each artist. Enjoy…feel free to comment with recommendations. (Warning: Falling in Reverse swear a bit!)
