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.
Beck - “Looking For A Sign”
It’s really Beck, though the familiar acoustic buzz around this track will have you doubting it. Although it’s not what we've come to expect from the ever-experimenting artist, it sends a reminder of just how versatile Beck can be. This new song is going to be featured in the upcoming film Jeff Who Lives At Home.
Brandi Carlile - “That Wasn’t Me”
It's been three years since Brandi’s last release but the folk-rocker has completed 13 new tracks for her forthcoming album, Bear Creek. The gospel inspired “That Wasn’t Me” is the first release from the record and it showcases the softer side of Brandi.
Lee Fields - Faithful Man
This North Carolina native has been making soul music since the '60s. From upbeat jazz to southern blues, Fields keeps this record fresh on every track, while staying true to vintage soul.
Lindsay Fuller - You, Anniversary
The intimate storyteller has gone from independent artist to rising star. Now signed to a record label and working with such greats as Amy Ray, Lindsay Fuller is set to take the stage with her new album, out tomorrow.
Keane - “Silenced By the Night”
Keane says we should expect honesty from this new record, Strangeland. The first single, “Silenced By The Night,” does just that by delivering us back to the years of young love.
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros - “Man on Fire”
Sharpe & The Zeros are dropping their new album, Here, on May 29th. The first song from the record, “Man On Fire,” is a slow build into soaring choruses and harmonies that leaves you inspired.
Jim White - Where It Hits You
White has found a way to embody vulnerability in every aspect of this new album. One minute White makes you feel as if a new day is coming and greatness is just on the horizon, and within two track he has destroyed that hope. Where It Hits You isn’t for the faint of heart but it may just be what the heart needs.
