Do You Hear What I Hear? Part 4

It's time once again to clean up the MP3 player and add some new music.  Here are a few songs that I am loving at the moment.



The Boxer Rebellion - Diamonds

I love the 80's sound to this Brit-Indie band.  Formed in London in 2001, this band consists of a Tennessee native, Nathan Nicholson, an Australian lead guitar player, Todd Howe and two Englishman (drums and bass).  They have so far released three studio albums and a few compilations, but their most recent release on March 14, 2013 included this cut.  

Emeli Sande - Next to Me (Acoustic)

Adele Emeli Gouraguine, know better as Emeli Sande is an English born Scottish singer that shot up the charts in 2010.  In 2012 she received the Brit Awards Critics Choice Award and has written a number of songs for such artists as Alicia Keys, Leona Lewis and Susan Boyle.

She performed at both the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics.  

I just can't quite get around the fact that this singing sensation sounds a heck of a lot like Beyonce (and I am NOT a fan of Beyonce).  She's hugely popular and slowly gaining momentum across the pond.  

The Unlikely Candidates - "Follow my Feet"

Fort Worth, TX indie rockers, recently signed to Atlantic records. 

Pearl Jam - "Sirens"

Formed in Seattle, WA in 1990, Pearl Jam is set to release their 10th studio album on October 14, 2013.  This single was released in September and the first time I heard it I loved it (and this is coming from someone who has never been much of a Pearl Jam fan).
