I don’t want to make a habit of only posting other people’s finds, but Urban Outfitters’ blog has a great selection for this week’s Music Monday, which they posted on Tuesday–which I will now post on Wednesday. Check it outttt.

Also, all tracks are free for download on Urban Outfitters’ blog, and some of the artists have free downloads on their sites, as well!


“Whirring” by The Joy Formidable

“20 Miles” by Deer Tick 

“Numbers Don’t Lie” by The Mynabirds

“Rhumba Beat” by Sean Bones

“Us vs. Them” by Common Prayer

I am especially fond of the MynabirdsLaura Burhenn has a fantastic soulful voice and writes inspired lyrics, with most of her influence coming from George Harrison’s six-time platinum album, “All Things Must Pass.” A few other notable artists in her entourage include AJ Mogis, Orenda Fink, Tom Hnatow, and Nate Walcott.

Their debut album was released 4/27/2010 entitled “What We Lose in the Fire We Gain in the Flood.” Other than the free download on Urban’s site, you can also download their single, “Let the Record Go.”

Let’s just continue the music with Marina & the Diamonds–one of the UK’s new up-and-coming pop artists. Vogue’s Daily coveting blog is just as interested in her new sound as the British music scene is. She is currently touring across Europe, singing some of her more famous songs, “Hollywood,” which is about her obsession with the American Dream and “I Am Not a Robot.”

Marina’s album, “The Family Jewels,” is currently at number five on the UK charts, but she wants for her music to be listened to everywhere and hopes to have the same success in America that she is now experiencing in the UK.
