THE SOUND OF (THE FIRST NINETEEN DAYS OF) 2011 (SO FAR)

Last week, my MP3 player began to start playing up, and as a result, i’ve had to spend my daily commute to work and evening jog listening to the joys of Digital Radio.

After sifting through the crap, i’ve actually managed to come across some new songs that i’m just loving at the moment that are worth checking out over the forthcoming twelve months.

The first song is ‘Stop Hey’ by Sunday Girl, combining synth riffs (A slight reference to ‘All The Things She Said‘ by Tatu) and a hypnotic drumbeat to bring this soon to be Electro Pop classic.

When in Edinburgh over the summer, it was hard to escape the posters for Pearl and the Puppets, AKA Scottish singer Katie Sutherland.

After reading some reviews upon my return home, I checked her out on Myspace and Youtube, and fell in love with ‘Because I Do’, as will anyone who loves to lie back and drift into a song.

If you love this song, check out ‘Neapolitan Dreams‘ by Lisa Mitchell.

The next song i’m loving at the moment will be no surprise to anybody, ‘The Roller’, the new single by Beady Eye, AKA, Oasis without Noel Gallagher.

Despite my initial worries, the snippets of the Beady Eye songs i’ve heard are excellent, and I can’t wait for the album ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding’ to be released on February 28th, which as any Oasis geek will tell you, is the 11th anniversary of ‘Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants‘ being released.

I’ve been pretty much indifferent to Adele so far.

I like ‘Chasing Pavements’ and ‘Cold Shoulder’, but I wouldn’t be rushing to play them at full blast.

Her new single, ‘Rolling In The Deep’, is a different scanario. I love it.

If ‘Me and You’ by Nero sounds familiar, it’s because it’s currently being used by the BBC on a trailer on TV for Radio 1, especially Zane Lowe’s show. Don’t let that put you off, it’s an excellent song.

The final song that i’m loving is ‘Butterflies’ by Tone Damli.

Six new songs that i’m loving from the first nineteen days isn’t a bad ratio. Hopefully, the remaining three hundred and fourty-six days has as good a ratio.
