Toss on this gem from the ‘70s today and jam away. You might think it’s just the same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea—and that may be true, but for $4.99, this isn’t just dust in the wind.
Describing Chris Stapelton's music as a modern day Otis Redding mixed with a soulful country feel is probably the oddest, but most apt description one could give. The music has almost a soul feel to it, and you could almost convince someone this is essentially a southern rock/blues type record on top of the underlying country themes. If you've never listened to Traveller or Chris' music, it's definitely one to listen to today.
Today’s featured artist debuted and became a household name—but history has likely incorrectly classified the group as Nirvana wannabe. Two videos from their debut album would end up being on the ‘most requested’ list for MTV in 1993, and one was even featured on the MTV hit Beavis and Butt-Head. Get transported back to '94 by giving it a listen.
It’s been said this is the album that created “Madonna the Superstar.” She was everywhere—not just on your local radio, but all over television and featured in films. Speaking her name could spark outrage and create debates—but when the day was said and done Madonna also got great reviews and people respected her music. Open your heart to this one today. It almost certainly will cure your Tuesday blues.
If you’ve somehow managed to not hear Adele over the last decade, first off congratulations—but secondly, you’re missing a piece of art. Her vocals are probably the top five ever, and the raw emotion of her music really comes across no matter where you’re listening. If you move out of your comfort zone for one artist this week, have it be Adele.
Initial reviews of Oasis' second album were harsh—but over time, not only has it been recognized as an outstanding album, but a seminal record of both the Britpop era and of the entire 1990s era of music.
Fun fact: It took splicing together nearly 40 edits to get to the final version of the title track you hear on the album. The effort was certainly worth it as Hotel California has sold over FIFTY million copies worldwide. It’s #37 on the Rolling Stone 500 best of all-time list, it topped the Billboard charts and won two Grammy Awards. If you've never listened, there's never been a better time. If you have, check it out any time you'd like!
When Sia hit the mainstream with this album, many commented how she sounded so seasoned for a ‘newcomer’—when in reality, she’d been making music for decades. This is actually her sixth album (!) but it's the only one that might have you swinging from the chandelier on a Tuesday.
Soft electronic is certainly not a music type you often hear about, or a genre you find your friends bugging you to try out. It’s probably not for everyone, but if you have the slightest intrigue, give this a shot today. It’s likely one of the best albums you’ve never heard.
Popular music doesn’t always make for the best music. There are plenty of multi-platinum records out there that quite frankly, aren’t worth listening to. Today’s band has been has been making music since the late ‘80s, and outside of the featured album, haven’t generated a ton of accolades—but they’re a solid group.
