Here at the PIT office, we spend our days jamming to the greatest new tunes available. Lucky for you, we’ve now made a Spotify playlist so you can check out what songs we’re playing at the office. Give it a listen and let us know what you think!
Haley Reinhart -“Free” — American Idol alum serves up slick vintage pop-soul.
Donavon Frankenreiter- “Start Livin'” — Groovy, raspy, finger tappin’ summer anthem.
Gold Motel – “Safe In LA” –Shimmery guitars and effortless melodies add up to irresistible charm, making them the dark horse of new indie-pop.
Jukebox The Ghost- “Oh Emily” – Bouncy Ben Folds disciples get big pop sounds but keep the quirk, wit, and heart on their 3rd album.
Blitzen Trapper – “Fletcher”
Shawn Colvin – “All Fall Down”
Edward Sharp & The Magnetic Zeros – “Man On Fire”
Middle Brother – “Theater”
Marcus Foster – “The Room”
Trampled By Turtles – “Walt Whitman”
Great Lake Swimmers – “Easy Come Easy Go”
Mary Frances’ Picks:
Dr. Dog- “Lonesome”–bluesy jam that embodies the thick heat of summer with a quirky humor (especially the video).
Alabama Shakes- “Hold On”–Howard’s powerfully deep vocals provide a punch to this pop rock track.
Edward Sharp & the Magnetic Zeroes– “Man on Fire”–a lulling melody escalates into a full-fledged ballad of energetic optimism.
Michael Kiwanuka- “Home Again”–exemplifies Kiwanuka’s soulful voice that has critics calling him a “male Adele.”
Tyler Hilton -“You’ll Ask For Me”
Sara Bareilles – “Stay” — new release, perfect as always.
Jana Kramer – “What I Love About Your Love “– so much country, so much twang and I LOVE IT, great summer song (y’all are probably going to make fun of me for this one haha).
The Pretty Reckless – “Hit Me Like A Man” — badass vocals, hard rockin’ sound.
Dead Sara – “Whispers & Ashes” — new band, recent feature in Billboard, female lead singer and one other female member, sounds a lot like Grace Slick.
