New Music Monday is a collection of the best new releases in music each week. We share them with you every Monday, every hour on WFUV.
Grizzly Bear- “Yet Again”
This track marks the indie band’s most accessible sounding music to date. With that said, it is still quite original and interesting. This one will grab almost anyone’s ear.
Dwight Yoakam- 3 Pears
Musician/actor Yoakam went into the studio with Beck to record this album. While the two are very different musically, it makes sense based on their similarly unconventional styles.
Milo Greene- Milo Greene
When sending music out to record labels and radio stations the band used the fake name Milo Greene to seem more professional. After settling on that as the official name for their band they produced this cool new record.
Mumford and Sons- “I Will Wait”
Mumford and Sons were instant WFUV mainstays because of their folk infused indie rock sound. This track cements them in that position.
Rodriguez- Searching For Sugar Man Soundtrack
This artist released two albums in the early 1970’s with little fanfare then faded into obscurity. His music then became huge in the anti-apartheid movement inspiring millions and subsequently a documentary about the story. While the story is a great one, it’s the music at it’s heart that we really care about, and it’s certainly good.
Van Morrison- “Open The Door (to Your Heart)”
Don Was, the producer behind Bob Seger and Bonnie Raitt, manned the studio for this new track. You can hear that tasteful influence in the bluesy, R&B groove backing Morrison’s typically fantastic vocals.
