I did one of these diaries several years ago and it got a really good response. I'm sitting here on a Friday night drinking a beer and thought it might be a good time to do another one. Plus, I don't recall seeing any Friday night music diaries here on dKos in quite some time.
So what am I listening to tonight? There's an up and coming band out of England that has been making some waves over the last several weeks. London Grammar is their name, and they are a trio consisting of Hannah Reid, Dot Major and Dan Rothman. This is the song that people have been talking about over across the pond (and which I downloaded from Amazon earlier this evening):
Something else that I recently purchased was the new album by Travis called Where You Stand. Although they've been around for a number of years, this is their first new material since 2008. This is the title track from their new album.
Finally, here's the new song by Fitz and The Tantrums. I came across this band a couple of year ago surfing around late night cable. The earlier work reminded me quite a bit of 80's era Hall and Oates. This one is definitely more pop than their earlier material. I still like it though.
For comparison, MoneyGrabber is from their last album.
