This is just the type of album to put on during a long Tuesday and plow through the work day. It’ll get your toes tapping and head bobbing. Give early DMB a shot today for $5 bucks, but don’t blame me if you end up dropping $150 on their Alpine show in June when you get hooked.
In an era where grunge music and alt rock was all the range, Garbage saw an opening and seized it. This isn’t your standard run-of-the-mill 90s alt rock album, it offers much more than that. It somehow managed to be a pop album while maintaining a dark, almost experimental sound. Their self-titled debut was an immediate success critically, with many reviews hailing the album as “innovative.” Today, you can score this popular classic for only $5.
This album shot to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for the single ‘Higher Love’ and would earn Record of the Year and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance Grammy Awards. Even though it's far from new, this album holds up and you'll probably find yourself tapping your toes and singing along.And since you can get it for only $5, it's today's Cheap Tunes pick.
Ed Sheeran began recording music in 2005 but headed to Los Angeles in 2010 to try and make it big. While playing an open mic night, Sheeran was spotted by actor/musician Jamie Foxx who recognized his talent and took Ed under his wing. Sheeran’s first album was released in 2011, and a year later he was collaborating with (and opening for) Taylor Swift, catapulting him to major fame—and for good reason. For $5, give his first album a listen.
When you’re starting out, it’s fairly typical for a band to make a living off essentially nothing. Eating ramen noodles and sleeping six guys to a studio apartment is more of the standard than the exception. All the sacrifice is worth it when you catch your first big break and get noticed to by a record label. Today’s band started much differently—they came from a penthouse, not an outhouse.
Today’s band was always ‘the next big thing’–referred to as the “next Jane’s Addiction,” then the “next Nirvana,” then the “next Pearl Jam.” While somewhat flattering to be compared with those great groups, all this band wanted to do was step out of that limelight and become their own household name. They succeeded in spades and you can score their second album today for only $5.
Sometimes big things come from small places. That's the case for today's group who, despite being from a country only 175,000 square miles, achieved world-wide fame. Their third studio effort held a track that rocketed them to fame after being featured on television shows and a very popular movie. Today, you can score the whole album for only $5.
There are artists that you can hear one time, and you’re certain they’re going to be a huge success. Sometimes it’s the whole package; sound, looks, personality – they all form into this magnet for attention and success. Today’s artist is unquestionably one of the most successful pop artists of all time, and it was pretty clear that would happen from a young age.
Franz Ferdinand received universal critical acclaim right away for their debut, with reviewers saying how it was a great rock ‘n’roll album during a time when pop and punk music was mostly in the mainstream. It sounds almost identical to a Strokes album, which is certainly not a bad thing. But since Franz has been nominated for multiple Grammy Awards, it seems they get most of the attention for doing it the best. And to score it for only $5? Not to shabby.
Sometimes you hear a song on the radio in the car and you crank it up...but have no idea who sings it. Today’s band kind of falls into that category. Certainly recognized for a few popular tracks, but has SO many hits that many people don’t always give the band their proper credit. For five bucks, you can score this can't-miss record and finally connect some great songs with the band that made them.
