New Music Friday: Ellie Goulding, Yo-Yo Ma, & More

Today I introduce a new feature inspired by other music places across the Internet, New Music Friday. Each Friday that I can, I’ll highlight great new songs & albums just released, for your listening & discovering pleasure. (Yeah, not too much of a complicated concept.) Here’s some of the excellent music on tap this week:…

Music Video of the Day: “Unstoppable”

I haven’t done two Music Videos of the Day in a row in quite some time, but there’s a really terrific one I’ve been anxious to share… “Unstoppable” by Lianne La Havas. Lianne La Havas, a British pop/folk/soul singer-songwriter (you know me and my love for music from the UK), released her debut album “Is…

Music Video of the Day: “Who Is It?”

Song of the Day: “FourFiveSeconds”

Long time, no post. It happens from time to time, as I’m sure you’ve noticed. It’s kind of late posting, but it’s a Friday (well, now technically Saturday), so why not?

Song of the Day: “Money On My Mind”
