I'm stuck in the past. In a typical day 85% of the music I listen to is at least 25 years old, and typically older. I stick mainly from 1964 through 1975 and while I still like newer music, I don't think to turn it on.
That being said, I've been trying to make an effort to find and listen to new (quality) music.
So I will be doing a spotlight every week on a band or person who is relatively new, or undiscovered, or both.
This week's artist is Joshua Radin. I discovered Joshua four years ago after one of his song "Your Winter" was played in an episode of "Scrubs." He's pretty mellow and good to just throw on and chill out. He takes typical guitar chord progressions and adds some extra finnese. His voice is recognizable and individual, but he still sings in the conventional sense. He is the whole package. He is John Mayer mixed Damien Rice and he is wonderful. He really is an artist, he bought himself out because he refused to make his music more sellable according to the studio's standards. He's now with an indie label and putting out some really awesome stuff. His new album "Simple Things" is available on iTunes.
Have a listen.
and all that jazz.
