This is the time of year is the Christmas to music lovers. New albums come out, along with summer tours. This is my favorite time of year for a music lover/concert fanatic. Some of my favorite musicians are coming out/came out with music.
M.I.A-album release date: June 29th
single "Born Free"
M.I.A is one of my favs. I've seen her twice in concert, and both times were amazing in their own special ways. Her albums "Arular" and "Kala" are in constant rotation on my itunes.
But her new single "Born Free" is different, which is what Diplo said of her new record in numerous interviews about this album. I'm not a huge fan of this song in particular. I don't think it's as creative as M.I.A can get, c'mon.....taking an entire song by Suicide and just singing over it? Now that's cheat.
I happen to like the song she put out via twitter a few months ago:
If this were an album by someone I never heard of, and just hearing "Born Free", I would shut it off and delete it.
Robyn-album release: June
This woman takes her sweet ass time making albums. It's been 5 years since her self-titled album. She's releasing three mini albums called "Body Talk", each being released when one set of songs is completed. The first of them leaked a few days ago. so me being impatient, I downloaded it as soon as possible. And I love it. Out of the eight songs, there is only one I don't like. Apart from that one song, this album is fantastic.
I can't wait for her to shimmy herself to New York and play a show :D
Other bands I love coming out with new material
