Like the title of this post suggests, I want to reach out to all of you about music you should start listening to. This is also a memo for me to start listening to these bands more, too. But in any case, I'm glad I've come across these artists, because I honestly do think they're worth the honorable mention.
Emilie Mover is just precious. Her album Good Shake Nice Gloves is really just whimsical and her voice, although not original, still deserves a lot of praise. Speaking of originality, my comparison of Mover to Regina Spektor definitely isn't, but it's still a justified observation. Both these singers have strong voices, I would say. A lot of Mover's album is low-fi, but I think that's what she should stick to for now. Emilie Mover's songs have such a modest charm. Songs like "No Hill To High" and "Ordinary Day" are gems. I always thought that music sounds best when it's summer. Good Shake Nice Gloves is for those lazy sunday mornings when you want to keep lying still, but are moved enough to smile. A-
Another group I think can raid the blogosphere if they had more listeners is Green Go. Although I still haven't listened to them as much as I would like to, they have some pretty good songs. They've been described as "a propulsive mash-up electro-rock, post-punk, and funky grooves." Needless to say, if you're interested in "electro-rock, post-punk, and funky grooves," then nothing should be stopping you from listening to the band's debut album, Borders. If I threw parties, Green Go would definitely be part of the night's playlist. Green Go have youth and exuberance on their side, which I hope will help them out during their musical career.
