Song 90: Natalie Prass – Sisters

Artist: Natalie Prass Song: Sisters First time hearing Natalie Press. Before the YouTube recommendation, I’d never heard of her. While the song certainly isn’t bad (I actually kind of like it) I think maybe it’s just not for me. Maybe that doesn’t make much sense, but it’s just not something I see myself listening to…

Song 89: Salt Cathedral – No Love

Artist: Salt Cathedral Song: No Love “Recommended to me” on YouTube after listening to the new Stars track over and over, Salt Cathedral is an artist I’d never heard of before this song.

Song 85: ISLAND – Horizon

Artist: ISLAND Song: Horizon A random YouTube autoplay suggestion led me to this song. I’d never heard of the band before this song, but I’ve come to enjoy. Not totally in love with the vocals, but I think they might grow on me.  They’ve got a new album coming on April 6th so perhaps I’ll check…

Song 84: Kacey Musgraves – High Horse

Artist: Kacey Musgraves Song: High Horse When both your favourite bands (Stars, and Tegan and Sara) tweet about an artist it’s pretty hard to resist checking our their music. Given the praise Kacey receiving was receiving about her new album it was no surprise to me that seconds into listening to this song I was enjoying…
