Amy's Pick of the Week

Here, Amy Brooks gives you a cool new song to check out and explains just why it's worth sharing.
  • Bush - The Only Way Out

    Not dark, not dirge. No, instead I’d say (in a word or two)… bright and inspiring. Bush recently released “The Only Way Out” as their lead single off of their forthcoming album “Man On The Run” (their 2nd in 10 years and their 6th in the past 20) due in the US October 21st. Here’s the thing Read More
  • Hozier - Take Me To Church

    Gospel on a rock station. It happens. Of course I can’t think of when, but it’s happening now and not only at Boston’s Alternative, Radio 92.9 but all over the world. Andrew Hozier Byrne—a 24-year-old Irishman who goes by his middle name, is oooozzzing with serious passion. His debut, "Take Me To Church" as he explains in an online interview, is about sexuality. "There is no greater celebration of life, and nothing more human than a sexual act." Read More
  • Big Data - things that make you go hmmm

    This New York electronic pop duo has been called paranoid.  which makes sense, after all  they were incarnated thanks to the hazards of the internet in respect to our privacy as users. For example- we all forget that whatever info we share (on FB for example) is being watched and since we are being watched, can this info we so willingly share be one day used against us?  Ok, food for thought. Hmmm. Interesting I say.  Are we talking about a band?  Indeed.  A smart one.  I like music and the musicians who create it that makes me think. F*ck the "shut up and sing" movement of times past. No, they have my interest here... Go on Big Data.  Apparently, their fact finding tells us that the NSA (National Security Agency) is watching our every move on the wonderful world wide web.  So Daniel Armbruster and Alan Wilkis have a purpose and a theme, big brother is watching and they took it upon themselves to make us aware. Now, as this all sounds very poignant and serious and deep, their video and even this new song is less so.  In fact the video seems quite tame until the blood and gore starts, note to self.  Aside from their powerful, thought provoking name and message, their song "Dangerous" does have a playful yet appropriately ominous bass line. So I say, don't be too scared. Listen with an open mind right here on the very same internet about which the band is so very paranoid. Irony is best served with a side of "oh well".  No matter how dangerous. Read More
